    BD’s thinking, “What a waste of lives, never again.”
    He was an optimist.

    Honorable, brave, talented men and women are used by dishonorable officials to fulfill their own manipulative ends. Why are we always surprised when events end badly.

    as a Canadian i want to say, that Liberal or Conservative, Democrat or Republican, we can all agree that our soldiers deserve our respect and gratitude for what they go through.Wars are never started by the grunts in the field.

    “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s”, such as taxes, following the laws and serving in the armed forces and following orders.

    Even if you wish Caesar would have a seizure.

    How (and I know…why?) does someone even respond to such hatred and ignorance? This total lack of empathy is why we keep getting roped into putting our precious children on the front lines of useless wars. Today I’m just grateful that I don’t know you personally, bawana.

    I agree. I had a uncle in WW1, 2 uncles and father-in-law in WW2 as active military (father worked for a company building planes and mother for War Dept. in Montreal), currently have step-grandson active in military and grandson has applied to military. All (at least the ones I knew) are/were people deserving of respect and honour.

    …except that the USA purports to be a representative democracy, where the Chief Executive serves at the pleasure of the People and their elected representatives.

    In other words, “Caesar” is Us.

    All people deserve respect, at least until they prove they don’t. As for bawana, if he was there, probably a rem. Thats the way he talks. People who saw things and thought about them…

    Hate speech is not protected speech.

    I am going to guess that you are old enough to have been one of the slime balls yelling insults at the troops right after they finally made it home. The reason they “whine” is because they were the first troops that were greeted with "baby killer’ signs instead of yellow ribbons. My father was an evil man, but I still respect the fact that he served. As an only child he couldn’t be drafted. He still did his 2 tours in "Nam. My mom was 7 months pregnant with me when he deployed. So yeah, unless you yourself have served AND gone to war the only one who needs to grow anything is you, like a brain and a heart.

    Maybe we Viet Vets are the whiniest. But I believe we were the first to be accused of losing a war. The Amer. Legion and VFW both refused, at some point, to admit Viet Vets into their orgs. for that reason, even though the leadership such as generals Westmoreland and Abrams were vets of WW II and Korea. Viet Vets started up their own org. with the motto which reads, in effect, “Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another.” So, stick that in your smoke and pipe it.
