A basic false equaivalency. You did not and do not serve your country.
Nor did (or do) I.
The difference is I don't need to change the terms meaning to suit my politics, or inflate my own service to make myself feel better for choosing not to serve my countries in their armed or civil services.
fish, try to keep in mind that we are posting on an anonymous football forum when you imply that one is trying to 'look
better' (how is that even possible?) or 'feel less then'. I hope you trust me when I tell you that my head hits the pillow easy every night secure in my contributions. I don't need validation from other anonymous posters with cute nicknames on a football forum. I can't be anymore honest then that.
As to the topic at hand, there is a simple question that can help solve this debate; what does it mean to serve your country?
I am sure we will end in agreeing to disagree.
