Although I don't believe the OP meant it to be this is really a vague question. Are we talking country or government? Are we talking real suicide or just severe risk? Are we talking a multitude of lives, land, or resources as the ultimate goal?
I myself spent 6 years as a Marine. And anybody who was a Marine will tell you that they essentially signed a blank check with their lives. So my answer is yes--for all it's flaws I would risk my life to defend this country. Although I'm not sure I would want to risk it for a giant oil grab in the Middle East coupled with an inept President's unwarranted war ego----
