My mom was a combat nurse and my dad was a fighter pilot. All my brothers ended up in Viet Nam and my kid did three tours in Iraq. I did my grad
studies in military history and frankly, I have so been brought up in war - I don’t remember a time when it was not part of my life. I even wrote
two books on war.
So I think I can say this with true objectivity - want to meet a real liberal - combat vets truly understand we should not be going to war - they are
the true liberals. They paid the price for that conviction, too.
We may be going to a real war next year, that is my prediction, and I want the reactionary right far removed from that decision. Because that war
coming is going to cost buckets of blood. If it has to happen I want a liberal making that call - which I hope Obama is.
That is the main reason I voted for him - that I think he is smart enough to make that call.
Everything else - the propaganda - is just BS. Maybe if we are smart enough we can avoid this - though I would not be counting on that.
