  •  Thank, you, WOXOF, for writing this. "Citizens" (0+ / 0-)

    who blindly applaud the Empire's Endless War, which in large measure has been going on since the early 1700s, can sometimes be brought to a little understanding and empathy for the cost to  their "soldier boys" (and now, incredibly to this Viet vet who went through college in the '70s with the air full of "peace and love" and feminists telling us we would be better off if women ran everything, "soldier girls" too.)

    It's all wrong, it's all too "human," and while the whole thing makes a few mothertruckers incredibly rich and powerful and immunized to any consequences, the whole thing is wrong, as wrong as cancer and tapeworms and leprosy...
