Dying For Your Country

When does a soldier die for his country? Suppose the U.S. launches an attack on Syria and casualties occur on our side. Will these soldiers be dying for their country?
Perhaps it is more accurate to say they will be dying for the various political interests who are pushing for an attack against Syria. That is worse than dying for no reason at all.
Below are some possible reasons for dying in a war when the security of one’s country is not at stake.
1.) A pay check
2.) Various Corporations
3.) A foreign country
4.) Help a president build a legacy
5.) Exalt oneself in the eyes of fellow citizens

Dying in a war is defined as dying for one’s country but it seldom is.
