Firt time I have posted, but I sure like to read these posts on all sorts of subjects.The post on the 2/27/03. You are all right on and we as the majority of real Amercians need to let this bunch of radical peacenicks know that we are feed up with their antiamercian crap. I live here in the mountains of Colorado, 30 miles from Aspen, and boy do we have the NUTS.

Walt, you sure got that right. We were there when
the first Pres. Bush and Margaret Thatcher had a
meeting in Aspen. Hunter Thompson wanted to organize a protest of some kind but they told him
"This is Aspen, we don't do things like that here." He said "OK, We'll just have a bunch of people dress funny." My question was how you were going to be able to tell which ones were protesters??

You can still support our troops without supporting the war.

Perhaps, but I don't think so. I don't see how you can "protest" and support the troops at the same time.

Seems like a logic error to me, but perhaps you can explain it?

I disagree with this war. I have been to protests here on campus. I don't like this WAR(or any war for that matter), not the soldiers who are fighting it. They are doing their job. God bless them defending our nation. The ppl I don't support would be the superiors who are ordering them to war. I don't want to see our guys die and I have no interest in being pressed into service either. Spitting and abusing soldiers is not how to win a protest and it is a completely stupid.

So in your view there is no "just" war?

Most philosophers, religious leaders, and thoughtful people would disagree with you on that point. There are some generally accepted reasons for going to war--you probably should study them.

Over the years, the U.S. has been involved in many just wars, and in almost all of them some minority has wrongly opposed them for one reason or another.

But in any case, you are right on one point: it should be the war and not the warrior that is opposed.

By the way, most soldiers I know are not simply "following orders" although that is a part of military life; they do their jobs because they know that protecting freedom for others is a necessary job, even if they are not appreciated while doing it. A much higher percentage of soldiers have college education than the rest of the U.S. population--they are smart, educated, and understand international relations much better than many Americans.

Some people have to have a bomb drop on them before they get it. Not me. Too big a chicken. I say you know anybody who's been called up you should take a moment to show your appreciation. Especially our career military. Without them we would be screwed to the wall.

i have a son ,2 stepsons and 2 nephews all in the military and i don't want anything to happen to then but when they were all together here near the holidays they all agree that somebodies got to do it and they all seemed proud to serve as their fathers did before them. i won't say that i'm not afraid for them but on the other hand i'm really proud too.

I may be ill-informed but I keep hearing that in this war there will be very little ground fighting. I pray that that is so. Also the things that the US has as far as war technology I think would amaze us and make us feel far safer. I may be wrong but I prefer to think that way.

and you should    Posted 02-28-2003 at 12:15:42       [Reply]  [No Email]
