Aren't you forgetting something!
* "The ultimate cost and consequence of any war is the lives of the young men who participate in it"
Yeah, that's been the ultimte cost and consequence to Americans and Canadians who have fought in wars.
Fortuneately for Canadians and Americans, the wars have always been fought somewhere else, where the consequences to civilians are all too real.
Does that make it easier to fight a War, with your loved ones safe at home? Wasn't Dubya AWOL and safe at home in America's last major Crusade?
Maybe the Europeans, Russians and Japanese are more reluctant to wage war - they understand the reality.
Scootertrash, lucky for you and yours, the next war will be elsewhere too. Go get 'em boys!
