It is far more brave and worthy of praise for men, and women to stay home and take care of their responsibilities. Yet, we still continue to call volunteer soldiers brave, heroes- They are not brave. It does not take courage to support hegemony and imperialism- it takes closed minds and eyes.

The attempt to wrench my heart would be more effective if Dad had been drafted, the fact is though he’s a volunteer, he wants to be there. I notice this is a Canadian cartoon. I can’t think of any good reason for my country to be combatively involved in Afghanistan or anywhere else in the region so I can’t think of any good reasons for supporting our soldiers choice to risk their lives and endanger their family’s well-being. I’ll shed a tear for their kids but I’ll reserve my feelings for their parents because they should know better.
I’ll just be happy if my country’s good name comes back in one piece.

This war was started by false documents, but you will never get to the bottom of anything this administration has done and when the next president comes in all will be forgotten.
Another thing is not enough young men/women have died until there is a public outcry like the Viet nam marches nothing will change, after all this is all volunteers from the National Guard, never mind that all the equipment sent over there and worn out will not be replaced by the government all the state governments are just out of pocket, just like another good program Bush and Company started “No Child Left Behind”, the person who profits there is Neil Bush who even he does not know a thing about education is selling devices that is supposed to help young students when all it is is a shell game.
Hope this country never gets another Bush because both father and son really did a number on this country, but they are not for democracy. Are they?

The cost of War is our dead, and we grieve for them.
But when a War is unjust, we grieve for them and for ourselves.

I never cry but this did bring tears to my eyes especially since I viewed injured soldiers trying o walk on this morning’s news program. I marvel at ability to defend this war by politicians and other brave warriors safe at home.

Better not to have gone in the first place. There has been NO “defense” of the USA since 1945 - only “offensive” imperialistic invasions!!!
