    Probably not. I'm not emotionally invested in it enough to care much. It's a place I happen to live in due to factors like upbringing, convenience, etc. Otherwise, I don't have any particular love or hate for it.

    I'm not a patriotic person...and probably wouldn't fight for my country for the sake of it. You have to give me a reason beyond borders.
    Anyway, in such a situation, it'd be pretty dumb to make enemies in your hometown if you want your family (who's living there) to have medicine and enough to eat. I think I'd do enough 'fighting' to assure my loved ones' safety and comfort.

    - why would I fight for my home country when I have no choice in where I was born?
    - what could I actually do for my country anyway?
    - what's the chance that I could die? if I'm dying for my country, I better bring the enemy commander with me, because I'm not dying in vain
    - what if I agree with the stance of the other country(s)? would you fight for your country if you lived in 1940s Germany under the Nazis? I sure as hell wouldn't

    It makes sense to cooperate with others to defend a common interest. There's strength in numbers.

    For some reason I would be more inclined to fight to defend random strangers in street brawls than I would be for some large body of people. Somewhere along the line, I determined that the more people there are, the more suckage increases.

    Guess that goes against the reasoning of fighting for random strangers in back alleys.

    Heh, just another reason why people suck.

    The problem is that war is hardly concerned with fairness or justice unless it's from the perspective of someone intervening. Otherwise known as "equalizers". Surely, that's what I would be doing.

    However, I'm basically just cannon-fodder.

    Yeah that.

    This, for whatever reason, reminds me of the town Atom from Fallout 3.

    I don't have a hometown

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    No. I believe everyone to be responsible for fighting for themselves. If everyone learns to fend for themselves there'd be no reason for anyone to die over protecting a checkpoint. 100 individually trained soldiers stand far longer than a group of 5 trained soldiers and 95 clueless civilians requiring their protection.
