    And while you may be on to something with the Air Force Academy, you will not find a group of people more opposed to war than soldiers.  

    Having spent way too much of my life inside the Mountain I can tell you it is all about peace.  When you pass through those blast doors every day your only thought is "please let me walk back out today."  Its not just that you dont want something bad to happen but that even if the worst does you would rather be on the other side, with your family, than inside watching them all die.  

    Having been through some scares I can tell you that NO ONE wants to give a "No" assessment to the question "Is this a threat to North America?" than the guys/gals in the mountain.  We drill and drill and drill more to ensure that if we ever have to give a "Yes" we are absolutely sure and there is no other explanation.  

    As for the AFA, there is a lot of hate radiating from there.  The extreme right is so deeply ingrained that they dont even recognize how extreme they are.  I recently had a discussion with an AF peer and he said he didnt really see why everyone thought the AF was too religious.  What he thought was normal the rest of us knew was way out of line and probably illegal.  It was like someone from the Arctic arriving Arizona for winter freak winter storm and saying "why so much fuss a over a few feet of snow?"

    You think you dislike war, I know I do.  

    It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it. Robert E. Lee
