Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I entirely agree, and I would go further.  It is not a secret that people don't want to die for their country, they want to make the country do what it needs to so no one need die for its failures.

The corollary is not to kill someone else for their country.
