Brave war soldiers die so that fools could live?

There was a movie where someone said when asked why he didn't want to go to the war and defend his country and he said, "because I want to survive! You stand for a cause and you just get mowed down." He said, "look around you" (standing on a cemetery with 100s of dead soldiers gravestones).... show more There was a movie where someone said when asked why he didn't want to go to the war and defend his country and he said, "because I want to survive!

So essentially, the brave and courageous who went to war to defend your country and freedom died, but who did they die for? The surviving people who stayed at home and they are the fools and selfish (possibly money-hoarding, greedy) people.

Going to war used to be a noble thing, dying for your country with valor....but isn't the truth just simply, you die, so that fools back home get to live and live selfishly and foolishly.
