      If one were to tell you his job was to defend the weak, would you agree with him?

      If he feels that's his purpose in life, as a person, sure. But his job as a soldier is to defend my right to live as I choose, within legal parameters of course. I'm not legally allowed to defend those rights myself because I am not a soldier.

    The main duty of the American soldier though is to protect America from all threats both foreign and domestic. And to uphold the constitution and deal with those that would break the constitution in order to harm the people.

  • It's not up to me to define what a soldier is. I'm not a soldier and I'll never be one. Some things you just have to experience to understand.

      I do think in the case of the UK (possibly bias) NATO and the US probly other countries as well it is good the vase majority of the time but not always so we shouldn't just assume.
      Then other countries are far far far more sketchy ie North Korea and middle eastern and central African dictatorships.
