  •  That's an absurd attitude. (1+ / 0-)

    As a veteran, I tend to reject calls to send someone else's kids to war. You are free to volunteer.
    This is missing the entire point of having a volunteer, professional army under civilian control.  The army does their duty, which is to fight in whichever conflict the people or their representatives vote they participate in.

    Everyone in the armed forces agreed to this when they signed up.

    Requiring people volunteer themselves to have a say in the deployment of the military is basically to remove civilian control of the military.
