Soldiers are upset when their honor is correctly denied to them for killing unjustly and dying foolishly.
Look, at least avoid one of these.
A true patriot may perish, but he will abide by jus in bello.
A mercenary may kill for money, but he is smart and tough enough himself not to die.
And a holy man neither commits statist crimes nor throws away his life for nothing.
All three of these are more respectable than our pathetic government soldier.
