So, let's get this straight. You want someone to go through the same experiences you did, while in the military?

I have friends with the 10,000 yard stare, A friend of mine got himself killed, because of USAF stupidity, one friend had to write a letter to his troop's parents about how their son jumped on a grenade in Iraq, you want to make someone go through that?

Gee, and my ancestors were fighting the Imperialist British, a lot farther back than then. If family myth can be believed, they sided with the Native Americans. Before that, they were fighting the British in the Highlands of Scotland, or each other.

None of that proves anything.

About the Romney's getting not getting drafted?

Or about people who've never served being chickenhawks?

Easy. His is the ideology of moral inversion, group identity, inherited guilt or responsibilty, hence no hesitation in making issue of a family, and why he brings up his son when he's challenged.
