And Kerry's verbal screw up should erase all of this, right?

Not a f*cking chance!

i don't even think it was all that big of a screwup. the fact of the matter is that if you are a high school grad without the means to get into college and want something besides a career flipping burgers the military is where you end up. our reaction to viet nam of "all volunteer" has turned the military into a mercenary organization. we needed a form of national service, we got hightened elitism. the ones who send the troops are not the ones who served. it's a shame and it's getting our young people killed for no good reason.
