Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks TBG! I fully agree with you.

I can not find anything honorable nor heroic in militaries or serving them. Creating militaries, will great wars and killing and suffering. There are no just wars in my opinion only criminal acts. I believe killing and war destroys any man's or woman's soul and integrity. Hero's to me are people like Gandhi or Mandela who had an inner strength to withstand their inner anger and grew beyond their inner need for revenge, and were able to motivate others to do the same. For me war is about revenge, greed, and powergames. I just can not see ANY honorable reason for war.
