    Hate to generalize any more than has already been going on in this thread, but I bet most of them are proud of their child's sacrifice for their country.

    I disagree. Respect for the Office of President of the United States should ALWAYS be given.

    Presidents have done FAR WORSE than Bush... Far Worse.

    Harding with lack of control over the Market leading to the Great Depression and Teapot Dome.
    LBJ for escalating the Vietnam War too epic proportions, killing millions more than Bush will ever do.
    Reagan for de-regulating the S&L's and Iran/Contra, bankrupting millions of people and thousands of S&L's.
    Nixon for Watergate and illegal bombing of Cambodia and North Vietnam, again, killing millions and absolutely invading other nations illegally.
    Grant and Crédit Mobilier & the Whiskey Ring.
    Clinton and lying to Congress, Whitewater... a Federal Offense AND leaving Somalia like a coward, giving OBL the Green Light to target the cowardly Americans with no back bone starting all of this crap that Bush is trying to mop up. Blame Clinton, not Bush please...

    Keep it in perspective please, if Bush should be out, then most presidents should be out.
    Give Obama time... the stats indicate that he will break some laws and do some nasty **** of his own.

    But what RIGHTS have been lost?

    Sorry, but somebody that joins the military that fights in a war and dies is not a "Right".
    I understand being angry, and wanting to blame somebody...
    ...but there is no blame to be had. The kid joined voluntarily. *shrugs*

    Sorry, that is just how it is. now, about those lost rights?

    One makes the best of a bad situation, of course; but I'd wager that all of them would rather have their children alive again, at any cost.

    Yes and no. I want my kids to live far longer than me, but if they did die protecting/saving the lives of others and for a cause, then I would respect what they did and not want them alive over the lives of others or the just cause out of my own selfishness. That is just me.

    I have personally saved the lives of two people and helped in saving many more.
    My parents feel as I do when I told them about these instances and I have had other parents and friends agree.

    I think it's hard to speculate about such things when your kids are little.
    It's... theoretical.
    It doesn't seem real.
    Get back to me when you are actually faced with one of your children entering the military during wartime.

    I guess that I am combining what I think now with what my parents and other parents have said. I seem to agree with them and I don't see how that would change.

    I wouldn't want them to join the military, but if they did, I would strongly urge OCS or a Tech type, not a grunt.

    Privacy is one. It's now noted that "normal" or "general" Americans have been spied on via phone tapping. Some think this is no big deal, but I certainly do.
