Prober, your denial of climate change in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary is telling. "Don't confuse me with the facts, I've got my mind made up!" Really lends credence to your other arguments. Sheesh!

Nobody cares about your (was Global Warming now climate change) rants about the environment. The Ice Age is in full swing, Pal.

It's obvious they don't teach much environmental science since so many people reject the enormous amount of evidence proving climate change due to manmade effects.

Very poignant and pertinent editorial and right on the mark. Many US citizens living in the mainland never ever get to see the realities of conflict with a foreign enemy. We as citizens, are removed from the realities of personal death and injury caused by a force intent on eliminating each of us. That is the reality of today. We are cushioned and coddled as a nation. Perhaps living overseas would open many people's eyes, but they would never see the still bombed out buildings of Germany or Italy, or Bosnia. Never see the rows and rows of grave stones in cemeteries built to lay to rest war dead. We never see the camps with ovens and the subsequent smell still lingering of dead Jews and Christians burned to ash in Dachau and Auschwitz. I still remember the smell. War is never a good answer, yet if we are to remain a sovereign nation, we have to defend ourselves. Remembering our dead and living, is one small way to keep the notion that we ARE a nation, and keep our unity alive.
