    Do you feel that way about the Nazis and the holocaust too, just because it's "over"? Or what about September 11, 2001? That's "over" too.

    I know about a busload's worth of Vietnam Veterans who live with the "relevence" of the war on a daily basis. Mental illness, physical problems, cancer from agent orange exposure. It is never "over" for those people.

    I know, I was adressing more than just your comment.

    And Saddam and what he did to his people.

That is my right which I HAVE EARNED. I also never accused President Clinton of murdering Vince Foster. Please do have your fun at this great board. I rarely post in these off topics, last night your post just struck ME as tacky. I speak for myself only. Have a great day!
    dutchtrumpet, as a fellow veteran, I must say you are a good sport. Please feel free to poke fun at me anytime.

    It is very interesting to note how we view past events in the present tense.

    It is also interesting to note that we really are intolerant of people's views when they diverge from our own.

    Of the two, one went into harm's way and one didn't. As a veteran, I'm giving the nod to the guy that actually went into the combat zone.
