Military Philosophy

I push you,
You push me.
We both lose.
Being brave is being insolent.
We don't know what we defend.
We defend pride and narrow-mindedness.
We defend our past,
Our good memories.
We've never been on the other end of a bullet.
Military philosophy?
Knowing-when-to-draw-your-weapons philosophy?
Philosophy is exploring the why.
Bullets are a fatal solution.
I shoot you, 
You shoot me.
I am braver than you.
I have more bullets.

As I said many a brave soldier has paid the price for you to be able to say that.

Many a brave soldier has died so that you could say those words. Something to think about.

I have nothing against the soldiers. They're doing their job, just like my father had done. But I didn't ask my father to kill other people for me. I don't ask anyone else to, either.
