    No religion has a defined military ideology. Hence, this is setting the wrong precedent. Every modern professional military has to keep religion out of military as far as possible. Religion misleads the troops, gives them false motivation that jingoism can't achieve, and endangers their lives further. A responsible military encourages its troops to survive first, die fighting second, and fight dying last.
