If they let you keep your rehit, sure go for it. What corps would you be joining? Fighting, medical, engineering or anything else?

The biggest hurdle i see in my eyes is fighting on behalf of unjust and selfish wars over maya. That's what keeps me from joining the US military, otherwise I would consider it.

Yeah absolutely. I reckon the days of fighting just wars to protect or emancipate civilizations are long gone - despite what the propaganda machines in the media and government will tell you.

To the OP: If you don't wish to concern yourself with the politics of the situation, and if you feel that serving in the armed forces will not compromise your beliefs and practices as a Gursikh, I guess there's nothing to stop you.

watch this and make ur decision

I understand where your coming from but disagree with the lyrics of the video. When there was Sikh rule, Sarkar e Khalsa had an army (which consisted of people of various faiths), an army is needed to defend yourselfs and the citizens of the country. You are not turning your back on Guruu Ji, as when Khalistan is formed we will need an army and police.

I agree that armies should not go waging wars against others with whom they disagree, i.e.the likes of USA and Britian.

All wars now a days are not for defense. They are for stealing natural resources such as oil or natural minerals, like steel. To be fair, we do fight against terrorists but the reason there are terrorists is because of countries like the USA and Britain.

The truth is so many innocent civilians are killed, even what the media SHOWS the general public is staggering, imagine how much they do not show us? There's no justification for killing an innocent person, AT ALL.

You can't compare between Sikh raaj. Sikhs only defend themselves from direct attack. The only time Sikhs were offensive were to fight off an enemy or when Hari Singh Nalwa went to the pathan region in the north and established Sikh raaj there to ensure no future Mughal invasions were to happen.

The reason the USA and its allies went to Iraq wasn't for any justice, same thing i can argue about Afghanistan. Killing terrorists is just a facade over the intent of taking control and killing a group of people.

Don't take my word for it.

We need to stop eating the bull that our media feeds us. Whilst I have the utmost respect for those who do serve in the armed forces (they are basically walking towards their possible deaths by signing up), the general public needs to stop supporting this "Our lads" or "Our boys" nonsense that the tabloid newspapers spew out whenever support for these immoral wars is waning. The propaganda machine guilt-trips us into thinking that if you're against the idea of war, then somehow you're anti-British or anti-American, etc. It's a very simplistic way of looking at things, and to be honest it's exactly the kind of tactics they've used in order to fracture society, i.e. you're either with us or against us. In their perception, there is no middle ground or grey area.

Wake up Sikhs - don't feel like you have to pay obeisance to your adopted country by going along with everything they tell you. Using your own brain doesn't make you unpatriotic, a terrorist sympathiser or a traitor. Whilst these western countries have given us freedoms and opportunities that even our own country does not affford us, it does not mean we have to accept their brand of "slavery", no matter how subtle it may be.

The point I wanted to make was the Khalsa army (sarkar e khalsa, under maharaja Ranjit Singh), had soldiers from different faiths. In my post before I stated that there were people of diffent faiths. It had Hindu and Muslim generals. Even in Guru Ji's times muslim pathan mercenaries fought with the Sikhs. So if other soldiers from diferent faiths can fight for and under the banner of Sikhi, as they were citizens of the nation why is it wrong to fight for the army of which country you are a citizen. It can't be you can fight for us under us but we cant fight under you because Im a Sikh.

I am not supporting the US and UK wars. Im against it. If I did not make it clear im sorry but I said i'm against countries such as US and UK going to war with countires they disagree with. I should of elaborted more with what you say is true. It's funny how US / UK only intervene with regimes which have an abundance of natural resources. They wanted to liberate the arabs from tyranny, but come on UK your own peoples decendents were kicked out by a tyrant i.e uncle bob, but you never intervened in Zimb as theres not much to make from waging a war there.

Also your wrong Sarkar e Khalsa did go on conquring wars. It was not always in defence. You can argue going towards the kingdom of Kabul and then in opposite direction Kashmir from Muslim attack. But what about the attempt to expand the empire. The British ensured expansion southwards with there Treaty. The SIKH sardars of Malwa seeking protection under the Britishand also the amir of Sindh.

To expand the empire sarkar e Khalsa ventured north west after conquring Kasmir (ok Muslim threat), then ventured further towards Leh, Ladakh in which the tibetans/ chinesse were victourious

Also prior to sarakare Khalsa the misls demanded rakhi from there areathey controlled. It was Ranjit Singh who persuaded the misldar sardars to fight abdali/durrani. As they had took rakhi from the citizens for so long it was there duty to protect the land.
