Real heroes of conflicts refused to participate

To the Editor,

Re: Veterans owed our respect, Letters, Nov. 10.

People who kill other people do not deserve respect. They are not heroes.

The hero will be the first one to shout “No,  I will not kill my brother for any reason.”

Let those who demand sacrifice be the first to volunteer. Politicians, capitalists, royals, go to it.

Don’t send your sons, throw yourselves in harm’s way.

Don’t lie to us that it’s patriotic, for king and country, for the protection of freedom.

Don’t lie to us, for we all know that it’s about greed and power for the elite.
