I'm not doubting peoples' loyalty or willingness to fight if they HAVE to.
I'm just saying that while they would do that if they have to and are loyal, they are mostly just scared for their family and friends and want it to end.
A lot of the victims are just people that were living normal lives until one day their entire town was blown to pieces and gassed or shit like that.
They didn't go out seeking a fight. It was brought to them.
