Are Soldiers Heroes or Paid Killers?



The Vietnam War ended when soldiers threw away their medals, laid down their weapons and refused to fight. It ended when they stopped calling themselves heroes and when the public and their families stopped calling them heroes.

SANH (Soldiers Are Not Heroes) is a young movement that does not seek to hate any individual soldier, killer, or government. (soldiersarenotheroes.org)

It advocates peace and non-violence and discusses principles beyond national boundaries. It is a new world morality, emerging through the internet and embracing a peaceful future.

SANH examines war and mans hate for man as expressed in the media which is controlled by moguls and governments against the best interests of the majority. Soldiers put down their weapons when SANH started working in their lives. The mission of this movement is to advocate peace and non-violence, to question the propoganda that a man becomes a hero by wearing a uniform, to refuse to conform to the dictates of propagandists and warlords, no matter what flag they wave. Peace means NOT killing.

We are peaceful individuals joining in unison with civilised people around the world, who do not see war as a solution. We, not the media, will choose who we call heroes. "Soldiers are not our heroes. They can be heroes, they can act heroically, they can do heroic things - but the act of putting on a uniform and agreeing to put your conscience in a lockbox does not exempt you from moral judgement. It does not make you a hero...and we should not fall prey to hero-worship.”

Stand up and show members of the armed forces what you really think of their participation in needless war, bloodshed, killing, torturing and maiming."
