    So many of the wars this country has fought have nothing to do with freedom, but with raw imperialism.  Freedom ain't free and apparently neither are sweetheart defense contracts or oil exploration deals

    Which makes Memeotial day all the more important.   It is difficult enough that so much suffering results from the necessary wars, but the even greater tragedy of loss from the many wars of choice that America seems to seek out must be mourned and the victims of it respected as well.  We do well to remember the human cost if only to redouble our commitment not to go easily into another war ever again
