If you don't want to do this stuff, don't enlist.
It's that simple.
How do you think your society works? how is it that you can freely waste energy or food without a second thought. Do you not think there is a price for that sort of wasteful luxury.
People have become stupid overall to how the world works.
Grunts waking up? Give me a break. I'd dishonorably discharge any soldier that willingly made this kind of counter propaganda.
If you're a soldier, you enlisted to do what you were told to9 do. Now do it and make your political ramblings later. In the meantime, there's a war to fight. Stop pitying your enemy and kill him or be branded as worthless and a coward.

Here you go.
In psychology, the Stockholm syndrome is a term used to describe a paradoxical psychological phenomenon wherein hostages express adulation and have positive feelings towards their captors that appear irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims.
Did you know that the Taliban offered to give up Bin Laden several times to the US before it was invaded?

Really, you really believe what you are saying. If he left and deserted would he still be wearing his uniform. If someone is a deserter and feels so strongly as you say he does he would wear the clothes of those that either captured or took him in. Wearing a Uniform is supporting your country, which contradicts what you are saying. If you haven't been through SERE training then you are not privy to the strategies involved with staying alive. Its and escalation and de-escalation of words and other techniques to help keep you alive. If this kid is facing death which anyone caught these days knows the chances of survival with these types is next to nothing. This kid knows that and is probably desperate. Plus, unless you have walked a mile in his shoes you shouldn't be so quick to judge him. Way to support your country and Fellow countrymen!
