: Can we all meet at the local pub & have a cold one?
Well Rich, as one who fought and volunteered twice for that sad place, I for one will be happy to stand beside you and have a cold one at any pub you care to choose. We learned and grew from that ugly war. We were a people so divided as to make you want to cry, but out of it came a people more united. It made us realize that those poor schnooks who were whipped up into patriotic fervor, or just were there trying to help another people, even those who didnt agree with the policies of the war but fought anyway....those weren't the enemy or the ones warranting our condemnation. They were just the poor schnooks
carrying the burden. It is the politicians we have to keep a reign on.....so we don't go to war unless necessary and for the right reasons, and if we do go to war, we go to win. And lose as few sons and daughters as possible doing it as quickly as possible.
Yes, I will have a cold one with you. And look forward to doing that someday.
