You are missing the point. Have you ever shot an animal and watched it die? It will piss on itself and shake before it dies. It's really ugly. Young men die because old men are stupid. I think lots of people see it as a game and can't relate to the horrors of war.
It's not just old men being stupid; it's roughly 60% old men AND old women in both government and VERY BIG business being cynical and 40% TRYING to do what they perceive to be the best thing for their country's national interests -- whether or not they turn out to have been correct when all is said and done. Only the relatively young see war as any sort of a game, and most of them 'grow' out of that once they get stuffed -- or voluntarily stuff themselves -- into a uniform.
