    You forgot about the corporations that politicians work for. They are also winners of war.

    Honestly, I'm surprised that Danny Boy would take this stance. I figured a good Republican like he would be on the South's side. After all, the South was really fighting for states' rights against the big bad federal government, weren't they?

    true patriotism is really just a adherence to the Golden Rule.

    Oh the glory of war. This article was clearly written by someone who has never seen or been in combat. Only the flag-waving politicians are the winners of war.

    So we're supposed to charge forward, but in Gettysburg it was the Confederate side that did the charging not the Union side and they lost the battle.

    Yes, the good ol' days when brother killed brother for the right to enslave. That was when patriotism was IN fashion?

    Well, everyone I know is about to go out and celebrate. Too bad nobody is patriotic anymore...

    Was Dan going to let us in on which issues "really matter" or is this just a little history with added blather?

    Let us not fool ourselves. Many of the wars we have fought have had nothing to do with preserving freedom. Some wars are just dumb wars.
