whidbey: It's pretty insulting actually to acknowledge the War on Terror in the same breath as Vietnam or Korea.It's not even a "police action," it's constant militarism.We should be voting this shiat out of office.
abhorrent1: Maybe I'm just not good at graphs but I have no idea WTF that thing is trying to tell me.
EvilEgg: Yeah, but Afghanistan isn't a real war, with sacrifice and hearing about it daily.
Yoyo: 19 or younger. How soon people forget Bosnia and The 'Vo. Kosovo is truly our longest war./been to The 'Stan also
ambientlush: War. War sometimes changes depending on how long you've lived
mcsiegs: I was born in 1975....41-some percent is bad enough. A 16 year old who only knows this country at war is f*ckin depressing.
Jake Havechek: Perpetual war is an excellent population control.
thehobbes: mcsiegs: I was born in 1975....41-some percent is bad enough. A 16 year old who only knows this country at war is f*ckin depressing.It warps their world view. Service is seen as something holy now and when talking about their family members, they are sort of remark that some of their older family members didn't serve."My uncle was in the marines, and so was my older brother, but my dad didn't serve" is offered without prompting. (Had to deal with freshmen introductions all day)
Plant Rights Activist: technically the korean war isn'over
SirEattonHogg: Jake Havechek: Perpetual war is an excellent population control.Not at all the trivialize the loss of life in war, but 2000 lives lost over a 14 year conflict isn't much of a population control method.
nekom: That only covers the more major wars, there were others. Also technically we're still at war with best Korea.
bigdog1960: nekom: That only covers the more major wars, there were others. Also technically we're still at war with best Korea.shiat at 57 I'm 100% my uncle was a tank commander in Korea and Chicago (68).
