The discussion continues...



Go on over to my friend
Deuddersun's blog for more on this subject.

He says in part:
"Conscience is for us, here at home. They cannot afford one on the battlefield. So if your conscience is bothering you, do your part and sheath the sword."

Check it out.

I did a post on this topic just last night. Basically we need to be calling attention to the fact that the GOP is the party that does not support the troops.

Oh! But they're fighting the war. the culture war here at home. What a sad excuse that many of these warmonger chickenhawks give as reason they can't/won't/don't... Sorry be they all.

I agree with the future was yesterday, people bury their heads in the sand and hope that governments are working for them.

Hi Mary - in a nutshell.
Alas, a military career is one some choose to defend the family the community or nation.

But once youu put on the uniform, your conscious is gone, you are under orders - you follow orders. You are no longer allowed to have a conscience, whichever side you are fighting on.
