I agree, right now, Ukraine is "holding the line" against a currently aggressive Russia right now. The soldier in your article stated " It would have been better to go to war as an old man, he confided." It would be better if NOBODY goes to war. However if it HAS TO HAPPEN war is a man's game, it's not a kid's game. Many of the young soldiers you see in most armies are kids still who have much to learn about life and really have no business being there. Nobody really has any business being there but especially 19 year old or 20 year old kids. If somebody has to be there, it needs to be fully grown, wise and mature men who have lived life much longer than what you see in most armies today. But war is very much a man's game. However, war is also an equal opportunity employer too.
