People who go in the army cant do anything else, that s why they join in the first place. He had his fair share of "fun" exploding the heads of a lot of people during his life, pretty ironic he gets killed by a schizoid dude back in the country who was sick of his bullshits about honnor , charity etc. He saw him for the beast he truly is and obviously the hypocrisy was too much to bare.
There s war and...war. The only reason european or american project their armies in the third world be it middle east, africa or asia is because of economic interests, and all soldiers serving in "national" armies or "coalitions" actualy serve these interests. Simply put, all soldiers are, mercenaries. They re paid to kill people so someone else confortably sitting in a chair and full of money can preserve his money or make it grow. Soldier, cop, is a job, the risk is getting killed by the person you re suposed to kill to justify your salary.
Now when a group of people defend their interests at home and dont project to invade, move their troops somewhere else , they have imo the right to defend themselves. And they should only help those who ask them for help in the first place.
Sometimes you have to go where evil is to protect your own home, but in this case, occidentals dont have to go in the third world , they only go there to defend the ressources they re stealing first and foremost. The "we re there to free people from this evil dude" argument is bullshit. Soldiers are corporations mercenaries as simple as that.
Pretty ironic again to realize we pretend to porject our forces in the world to defend the poor and weak, when the first reason we get there is economic interests, and when you think about the moral, spiritual, economical collapse of their own democracies from the inside back at home.
