Message Body

"I rarely get involved in this pithy discussions over a useless war."

But when you do, you tell us that we who "weren't there" have less of a right to talk about it than you who "were there" do.

The US government fights "useless wars" all the time.  That bombing of Serbia for instance.

And now you've got a national news media that barely does any investigation outside of schlock infotainment for domestic consumption and is owned by a dozen or so big conglomerates, most of them beneficiaries of the military-industrial complex (GE, owner of NBC; Westinghouse, owner of CBS, etc.) and all of them clamoring for more useless wars under the rubric of the "war on terrorism."

So tell us.  Is that good, or bad?
