...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?
