    "defense" idiocy over the years, I'll roundly second your statement.

    And let's please be sure to include the people who bear the scars and pains of "service," so many of whom are blown up and defaced and emotionally mangled doing stuff that is just plain stupid, kicking in doors in Kandahar, dectecting IEDs by walking and driving over them, going out to pick fights on hostile terrain with people who bear them no ill will except as invaders who are playing a game called "We kill some of you, so you kill some of us, so we kill some of you, so you kill some of us," while their officers recline elsewhere or in the case of stateside or foreign "base" duty, live like little lord Fauntleroys. And then like Petraeus and Westmoreland and useless shits like "other priorities" Cheney and "Unknown unknowns" Rumsfeld go on the speaking circuit to get us all involved in more of the same...
