would you go and fight?
gonna bag me some towelheads
if so, where do I sign up
also, do you think you'd be good in a war?
would you be a conscientious objector? i think i would.
to what extent would the country have to be under threat for you to be persuaded to fight?
I'd fight to protect my own country from invasion.

Traitorous dog! We ought to execute you now just to save time.
I'm from Buenos Aires, and I say KILL 'EM ALL!
Would I go and fight to help invade some other country (e.g. either Gulf War)- absolutely not.
Would I go and fight to prevent my country being invaded / bombed / overrun (eg WW2) - sign me up.
1) Are my family likely to be protected from invasion by this war and my participation in it?
2) DO I get cool guns?
if it's some pedunk country out in the middle of nowhere, then no
If it's Germany, then yes
What if invading the other country was the way to prevent your country being invaded?
Moreover, what's so great about your country that you'd fight and probably die to protect it? Surely ideals are more worth protecting than arbitrary lines on a map?
I've got no particular jingoistic attraction to the UK, my concern with the country being invaded would be the potential for the death or enslavement of MrsScagden and the mini-Scagdens. Should I feel that my actions would in any way protect them then I would wage war on my own wearing only by boxers and a grenade belt.
I'd probably hide out somewhere and try and get the people I care about to join me.
that episode of Dad's Army where they find out that Godfrey was a concientious objector in the first world war? It's quite beautiful.
when you say 'GO and fight' it suggests that you would be fighting for someone else other than your nearest and dearest.
we don't see many of them. Are they lucky? Like a four leafed clover?
