A few people i know joined the Navy a few years ago to get a trade... as soon as there was an sniff that they would have to go to war.. they couldn't get out of the Navy quick enough.

I don't beleve in going to war I think that we should learn from the past and get over the crap.Fair enough loads of people died for this country before ,but maybe if we worried less about other countries problems we can consentrate on our own country...

I would like to see the fools ie; world leaders manipulaters that started the war and support the war all locked in a room to fight to the death last one standing wins. Then innocent men woman and children would not suffer.

No..... simple as that...

The so called leaders are really a front to a more powerful backroom lobby (as we all know) and I think these backroom people should be sent to war. If there is a will there is a way to do sort things other than war..

Anyone seen the documentary the "Fog Of War" ?

Besides apart from all that I am a chicken when it comes to bloodshed I'd run or not shoot and get shot ....

In fact, despite all of the moaning about lack of recruits, the military is still sacking more people than it's hiring.

=============================

Let me remind you that they only "notable" country that HASN'T gone into a major conflict when a female PM is in power is New Zealand.
So it certainly isn't testosterone.

And away we go

- Golda Mier - Yom Kipper
- Maggie Thatcher - Falklands
- Indirah Ghandi - Bangeladesh
- And Siri Lanka (I dont' know the name of the female PM but she picked the fight with the Tamil Tigers)

Thats four to one.

It's not a hudge sample unfortunately but it's still four to one. Thats a big ratio.

It is an unfortunate truth that nearly every major modern conflict (post ww2) has started due to one nation trying to impose its ideaology upon a struggling 3rd world backwater country. Korea, Vietnam, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan.. it goes on.

What people sometimes forget is the peacekeeping roles that the ADF (Australian Defence Force) play through out the world. We, in Aus, have been and are known as some of the best military units within the world. We're not just trigger happy , gung-ho gun slingers trying to get a medal for washing our bums the right way. We have, usually only steped in when asked to help out (e.g. Timor, Fiji, Solomons are examples of this.

Being ex - Army i can see both sides of any argument. I was lucky enough not to see active service in a hot zone, but I have experienced things that no one should really.

the ADF is good for giving you a trade (if thats what you want), but there are many things now days that make me happy that i no longer serve in active duty.

I know that the WW1 and WW2 lads were in a different situation. They had a different social mind set to what we do now. Media has a lot to do with societys perception war now days. During the ww1/ww2 conflicts, society were only shown what was deemed good for morale and the war effort.

I could rant on here for hours, but i wouldn't want to bore anyone.
so in answer to the original question :


who would join the army 2day, to go fight the war in Iraq?


I would not. any one that joins now would have to expect to be part of a conflict of some sort, be that "war" , peacekeeping or general unpleasant roles in nasty situations.
