our people fought in every war america has ever had. im not fully proud of this because we had apart in fighting and killing people who were not a threat to us. but for the most part, we had no choice because of the draft and a conscious responsibility to our duty as americans...even though we did not fully understand what most of these european iniated wars were really about.

i wonder how things would have come out for america in these wars had we been unwilling to give any support to them?
