was the equivalent of fighting for Germany in 1943
I didn't say it is equivalent. I took German WW II examples, because
  • I had the more personal examples at hand
  • it is the most extreme case. To use extreme cases is in science not unusual to demonstrate, that at some point a principle must break down. At which point would be an issue for discussion.
  • I thought there would be more support for the 'support the troops' tokenism, than there now seems to be. So I started caucious.
