Comments

Father, you brought tears to my eyes with this post. Our modern leaders should heed the admonition of Robert E. Lee, "It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it." A war entered into upon false pretences, a war with no recognition of its human or fiscal costs, a war with sanitized reporting from the battle lines and a war viewed on the home front with the coolness of a video game is a war which dishonors the soldier and glorifies the state. We must pray that the new President understands this before ever committing our sons and daughters to another foreign adventure.
