Phrosty has a point. A large number of incompetents ARE in the military, but there aren't any in the air. And I like what bitchassphatz said about the priorities we put on people's lives. Thousands dead in an earthquake in Turkey- front-page headline for a day maybe, then some follow-up articles on page 8. But four U.S. soldiers fighting a war that should not be fought? Headlines for a week, flags at half-mast.
Anyone looking for some reading material on this stuff, check out the article I just put up (More Hopeless Idealism) or check out this website: Alternatives to the War Against Terror
