Aunt, for your comments about how, because the army is 100% voluntary now, people go know what they are up against. Okay, I get that. BUT...a construction worker knows that when he is hired, he must obey his boss. But, if his boss tries to force him to work without providing him a hard hat, he can very well say "no". Is it really that different?
I agree that we learned nothing from Vietnam. I just hope that Bush doesn't one day think that our CN tower is somehow being converted in a WOMD :P Kidding, of course.
In addition, I notice that a lot of people have said things like "we don't really know the situation". I agree. But does that tick anyone else off? If your husbands, sons, daughters, etc are over there fighting, I damn well think you have a right to know what's going on!!!
