The older I get the stronger my grief that our young have been , and still are ,used, by politicians who aren't all that smart,who rush to war,as Mr. Greenberg says. It broke my heart when I was a young girl realizing for the first time that there were no "Rebels" buried in the Sharpsburg,MD National Cemetery. I thought,"These were Americans,someone's blessed boys." I don't want to seem a pollyanna,but sending our boys and girls overseas,now, to prop up whatever dictator or puppet,is useless. I don't think isolationism is the answer--that's just putting head in sand. We need BETTER and smarter people in positions of power ,BUT power goes to morally weak heads.
