In which HappyPete is a "tepid warmonger" at best...

Inspired by this post

...and I'm not sure that I (completely) agree...for some people, service is "not a career, it's just a job." I met some people in my stint in Officer Training School both on the commissioned officer staff and fellow trainees that I have a hard time "honoring," as I don't feel they deserve it.

That said, I think that the vast majority of our troops and veterans deserve honor and respect...

I guess this whole "support our troops" thing is a glittering generalization in my opinion...but "support those of our troops that deserve our support" is both long, and somehow tautological.

I don't have a lot of sympathy for "peace at any cost" peace activists either.

I've been struggling so hard to come up with a position on this war.

I think, bottom line, I want it to be over. With Saddam in power, I don't see that happening without war.

Is exhaustion an acceptable excuse to go to war?
