DrPainMD: Mid_mo_mad_man: DrPainMD: Since becoming a nation, we've only had to defend our sovereignty once, and that was the War of 1812. I honor those men, but not those who participated in building and propping up the empire... screw them. THEY are the cause of 9/11 and all of our current problems with foreigners.

What about the men who ended slavery? Or ended the Nazis rein of terror?

Ended the Nazi reign of terror? You've got to be kidding. We handed 150 million people over to Stalin and set the stage for Mao to take over China (not to mention the 10 or so million who wouldn't have died directly by our involvement in the war). Plus, we then embarked on an anti-communist crusade, supporting the likes of Papa Doc Duvalier and other dictators, which not only wouldn't have been needed if we'd let the Germans take down (or at least drastically weaken) the Soviets, but we created the CIA, which has been carrying out its own reign of terror ever since. The world is NOT a better place due to our involvement in WW2.

What he's really saying is we should have let Hitler exterminate every last Jew and homosexual.
The US should have in no way stopped that from happening.

Mid_mo_mad_man: Mid_mo_mad_man: I'm glad they mentioned the large number of civil war prisoner deaths. I had two die that way. One died when the prison she was in collapsed. The other was lynched by Union troopers.

I had two ancestors

Adam and Eve?

Methuselah's got nothing on you.

AirForceVet: Miss Alexandra: From what I can see, wars nowadays aren't fought for our freedom.  Our military is used to fight for someone else's agenda, then kicked to the curb when they're no longer of any use, the way I see it.

I'm not a "progressive," either...I'm very conservative.

//born in 1973

Not necessarily. You didn't miss out on the Cold War.

Or the Cola Wars!
