If you are asking someone else to do something you are not willing to do then that is hypocrisy. If you are saying that soldiers should refuse to fight , to risk their freedom, their livelihood or quite possibly their lives and you are not willing to do the same then you are a hypocrite. All the rattionalizing in the world, the "I'd do it if I thought it would make a difference" arguments are irrelevant. Either put up or shut up.Something isn't hypocrisy just because you label it so. If you show consistency in your actions, it's not hypocritical. If in each case you make the decision that you believe will do the most for your cause, that's not hypocrisy.
