For someone critical of others supposed lack of ability to think, you show lack of clarity and understanding yourself.
One of the principals of democracy is collective responsibility. After the vote all citizens have collective responsibility for the decision whether they voted that way or not. If they didn’t vote then they have no right to comment or complain.
Those who serve do serve in the name of the country as an end result of the democratic process. They don’t go by choice, they are ordered to go, indirectly by citizens, all citizens. If you are a citizen, you are partly responsibility for the deployment of this country’s forces.
For the record, I don’t agree with the wars and wish nobody had to die because there just has to be a better way. The resources lost in terms of lives and human suffering is an obscene waste of resources that should be put to better use.
If those serving are to be tried as you suggest, do you plan to accept your responsibility stand with them?
