Honestly: would you go and fight if your country was attacked by some enemy? :)

I have these dreams occasionally that a horde of demons is coming, and I am always excellent at organizing for the battle, but when a demon comes closer I just crumble down whimpering and crying like a kid, scared to death and just getting totally blocked!

If the battle was at my home or town, yes. I'll protect my children to the end. Would I go to find a battle and fight? No, I would stay at home with my kids and protect them.

I'm not going to wait until they get to my city. At 58, I'm not going to be the greatest soldier - but I would go.

I get an intense feeling of wanting to go fight when/if something like this happens, but now that I have a wife and kids to look after I probably wouldn't go unless it was on my own doorstep. I feel like I have a responsibility to take care of my family personally, but that's just my opinion.

I don't think I would. But I am not saying no as I've never been in that position.

I do beleive that in this day and age, humanity should have evolved enough by now to not need violence. So in saying that, I do not beleive that there should be any wars in the world. I know I am going to get some flack for this opinion.

Well, I live near the naval base, so if there was an invasion, there might be a battle there. Though I doubt civilians would be needed, what with the large number of personnel, there. But, if civilians were needed, I'd go.

I wholeheartedly agree with you. Unless I was caught up in a situation where I had to kill to save an innocent life (and even then...) there is no way I would kill a citizen of another nation just because our nations were not getting along and we were both handed a gun and told to go shoot at each other until the situation resolves.

I'm a woman and I personally believe women shouldn't go into combat.

It's my personal belief and I'm not gonna argue about it to defend it, I believe it.

I'm not a big fan of war. I admire the soldiers who do what they do, but I WISH they didn't have to.

Mr and Mrs Bignuf would be there to defend our home, our loved ones and our nation from invaders...even zombies and vampires. We are actually very well trained for such things...and not in just the video game world, ha, ha.

You know, I find that statement interesting, as I learned that "it is better to fight the bad guys on their turf or far from your home. By the time you must defend your family on your own door-step, it is usually way too late".

It is why, although I hate war, and wish humankind could live in harmony and peace (I believe it IS possible), the fact is, the state of human nature and the world as we have known it for thousands of years makes this totally impossible right now....SO, it is FAR better to fight the crazies on THEIR turf then here, and so sometimes war is just the right and only path to take.

Very rarely in real war, are there such things as "civilians". Everyone is on the potential "front line" and although we were blessed with two oceans as buffers, we now know that safety is fleeting. In the event of a real threat, we are ALL either defenders or by standers.....and by standers have a way of getting killed without the ability to even defend themselves.

If they attacted me personally it would be a matter of protection unless they backed off. Once they were backed off I wouldn't waste anymore energy in fighting the country

I really don't like the arrogance implied in war--that our lives and freedoms are worth more than the lives and freedoms of others. I know there's more to it than that, and I mean no disrespect to those in the military and who strongly believe in what they do, but I'm never joining the military.

And if it was some sort of zombie/demon apocalypse crap like in your dream, I wouldn't stand a chance.

I believe this too, but with the exception of the ladies who want to go.

Personally, I have two children I have to worry about right now. I'm lucky enough to live in a country that has an Army that will fight, so I don't have to. However, should I have to fight, I will.

I would never join the army or something like that, but if someone were attacking my family I would fight.

I'm no soldier. I would fight to the death to protect my family and friends, but I wouldn't go out and fight if I had a choice.

I've always been interested in the military and such, I love war movies and anything alike. But I feel really the only way I would go into battle against an enemy is if my family or my own life depended on it. Even then I wouldn't really 'want' to.
