In the Army in a War With No End in Sight

Good column by Bob Herbert in the NYT. Here's a typically insightful statement: "There are always plenty of hawks in America. But the hawks want their wars fought with other people's children."And although I would not qualify myself as a hawk (as a matter of fact, I much prefer the cooing of doves), I don't want my children sent to Iraq either. The 'war' is a travesty and a painfully heavy load for all Americans to carry.
