As an Argentinean I am aware my country doesn’t normally get involved in wars, however, when we have been involved we were heavily outperformed by our rivals. Our soldiers, during the war for the Falklands with Britain, were told that it was sweet and noble to fight for their country.
There is a song by fun. that talks about soldiers who don’t know who they stand for. I recommend you all to listen to the lyrics of the song as it has a lot to do with war and the mentality of soldiers.
