    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…
