Afghanistan is currently facing a major warfare. With the whole of the population currently in danger, many citizens are struggling to live in peace now that the Taliban have taken over the country. Many Afghans say that what's happening is wrong and demand change whereas others may think that even if it means the situation may get worse, there could be a chance to fight for what is right for them. Let's take a look at the two sides of why and why not you should serve your country even if you are considered a peaceful person.
Yes, you should serve your country to fight for justice.
In some instances, war can be started and many men ( women as well) can be called up to fight for not just their country, but for the whole population. Even if you feel like battling against oppositions can lead to many more casualties, it can be important as it could enable others to live a life that they might live. You may feel like everyone should remain as peacful citizens but sometimes, war can be started IF there is support from its leadership, military forces, government agents and of course its people.
No, you should not go to war as it can cause chaos.
You should not go to war as it can involve many distressing and chaotic scenes. For example, in '' The Great War'' many troops, specifically at the age of 16, 17 and 18 (some boys lied about their age and referred themselves as fit and healthy young men) were all deceased due to the scenes during the conflict. Another reason is that it can be most likely to be dangerous and can injure or seriously kill people. Although you may be remembered as a ''hero'' for fighting for other people's lives, due to the amount of lives being taken, it may be unclear about whose human remains they belong to, so some soldiers are identified as ''The Unknown Soldier.'' The events can therefore lead to people seeking refuge, as it may not be safe for them to live in their country anymore.
My Point Of View.
In my opinion, it depends on how the events result in. Sometimes war can result in peace for countries. In others, it can result in terrorist attacks. Also, Remembrance Day - celebrated in the UK - will be coming up on the 11th of November so it will give us an opportunity to stop and take the time to remember those who fought for our lives. If you would like to find out more about the upcoming event, there is a website which has all of the extra information.
