No War For Me, Thanks — Let the Americans Do It!

The following video from WEare138 Productions shows an American soldier interviewing several migrants outside an asylum center in Denmark. The three men — from Iraq and Syria — left their families behind to seek asylum in Denmark. The soldier asks them whether they would be willing to return to their homelands to fight alongside the Americans against the Islamic State.

Not only are these men categorically unwilling to fight for their countries, they appear baffled by the question itself. Presumably waging jihad for the sake of Allah and being martyred make sense to them, and they probably understand the motive of a mercenary who goes to war for money. But fighting for patriotic reasons seems to be an alien concept — defending their freedom or their homeland is simply inconceivable. Let the Americans do it!
