It depends completely on the conflict. Let's say Denmark attacks Sweden because our government believes Sweden is conspiring to steal and hide valuable diamond smurfs in a secret basement in Malmö, despite there not being any evidence. I would say this war seems pretty stupid and the problem would be our government, not Sweden, and I'm not gonna fight over these stupid smurfs.

If Sweden on the other hand were stealing delicious organic oats from us, the war may be justified. You need to be critical and ask yourself whether the fight is just and makes sense, who started it and why and what the best outcome of it for everyone would be.

Had I been born in Nazi Germany during WW2 the best option would've been to sabotage their war efforts, for example. On the other hand, had I been born in Denmark during WW2, the best option would be to help the resistance liberate the country faster against the filthy Nazi occupation scum.

It depends.

In a perfect society, and for our purposes, we'll define perfect as a finely-tuned, perfectly-running autocratic government, then it would be suicide to not fight for your nation. They would execute you for traitorous action and anti-patriotism. In an imperfect society, one that is simply not at an apex, be it autocratic, capitalist, communist whichever, such as the United States, it is entirely worth it when you consider the available benefits for your service, such as college/whatever, healthcare/whatever , and whatever really. In an apex free market society, without welfare, benefits, etc. etc., it is not worth it materialistically and it is 50/50 worth/not worth it spiritually. Material, you might die or be pushed away from family for no good reason. Spiritually, you are partaking in the most noble of profession; that of an honest armyman, be you engineer, doctor, frontlinesman, pilot or fireman. You will have a place, you will find cameraderie and better, but again, the emotional detachment from home might impact such positive feelings.

I'd still fight for Hillary's America because you still have an obligation to uphold the nation even if you don't agree with the current president's policies.

Soldiers as the most noble "workers"?

I think that being a soldier is often valued as being "noble" but not all soldiers are, themselves, noble. I think that's one of those jobs that can attract people that mean well but it can also attract sociopaths. If you've ever seen War Tapes, there's the guy that wanted to joins so he could "shoot people."

I would say that there are a lot of careers that are equally noble that don't attract as many sociopaths.

War is never justified unless, even if your government capitulates, (more) innocent folk will be killed for no grounds at all. Otherwise, war is inexcusable.

You've got to be kidding. This is the same woman that voted in favor of the Iraq war and then a few years later sent American oil companies in to reap the benefits. They call her a war criminal for a reason.
