    Yes, this story shows how dumb war sometimes is, those men didn´t hate each other, they were just following commands and orders.:squint:

    The way war should be, I would forever hate myself if I came back when I finally join from a tour as being a racist to say Muslims.

    Soldiers are soldiers, they take orders. Unless it's something like the SS or Terrorists than it'd be different. But I can't stand the thought of coming back with utter hate to another nations army just doing their job/orders.

    I might of clutterd my thoughts up, so hopefully that doesn't come off wierd. It's 7am and I just woke up and I have work now :o .

    My grandgrandfather was a "farmer" and during the WWII he was drawn in for military service, he was then an overseer in a german POW-Camp. There had been many british, american and french soldiers and they including the german overseers were also sharing cigarettes, sweets etc. because the POW became packets from from home with different stuff and the overseers brought things to the camp from home. There was now hate between them, they all had known they where just soldiers and especially in that times most soldiers weren´t even real soldiers, mostly were volunteers oder drawn normal people with normal jobs before the war. :)
