WOW! I came home from work and it looks like I started a firestorm! That was not my intention. First, to all my Canadian friends who displayed their Nationalistic pride, All Right! I wish The first two posters on this thread had as much national pride in the USA. My intent was not to demean or berate your country. If I had to live anywhere other than the US, Canada would be it.
I thank Deadbob for his post, I couldn't have said it better. And to Andrea88, I agree that war is horrible and grotesque, but I am also a realist and understand that at times war is necessary. Only the sick in mind and spirit crave war. I forget who said it, but I remember a quote "For evil to triump, good men only need to do nothing"
With that, I am going to bed.
