4. Those "leaders" vote to send soldiers to war

They have participated in the deployment of hundreds of thousands of their fellow citizens into war zones where each and every one of them know full well that armed people will "come after them" with every intention to kill. And yet our military follows orders from politicians to potentially sacrifice their lives.

No one is drafted into elected office, they pursued those positions voluntarily. Are they so afraid of losing those positions now that they are willing to lose our country instead? Are they perfectly willing to send troops into harms way to defend our nation but will themselves betray that country rather than face the risk of any personal harm themselves?
