  •  We shouldn't be fighting any war we don't believe (3+ / 0-)

    in enough to get plenty of recruits, or to receive massive support for a draft.  An unwillingness to put our lives on the line gives the lie to any grand talk about how important that part of the world is, or of our commitment to democracy everywhere, or whatever else high-flown justification is trotted out.  What you are arguing is that this war is all about money, fought by people for their own personal profit, which fits in quite nicely with our reasons for being over there.  If we don't believe in this war enough to fight in it, then we shouldn't be there.

    The only true competition in America is local--over which politicians will enjoy the privilege of representing the interests of the rich.
