  1. Many warmongering crazies on this board, have you served? Did you ever ask the young man his thoughts on attacking Iran?

    They never even asked me if I "wanted" to serve when I was drafted------also I had no imput on "where I was going to serve". Being that it is an all voluntary service now days I imagine everyone knows what they are getting into when they sign on the dotted line and if they don't-surprise!!!

    I understand the sentiment but I think it's kind of a red herring. The military is subordinate to the elected civilian government and it's that elected government which makes the decision to go to war or not. Like Rod said, you have to know that going in.
