    No. I (unlike you who have no clue about warfare) represent the reality of war. This over the century's has not changed, and probably never will.

    And I can rest my case.

    This is part of the reason my battle brothers are still dying over there. They are doing everything in their power to kill us, but we have to be careful not to damage the mosque or cause any kind of collateral damage!

    I guess after what happened to the Red Coats we still have not learned that war in not a "gentleman's" sport.

    I nominate that we elevate Blackdog to the DP Pantheon as the Patron Saint of War.

    I am not Catholic.

    Although you could nominate me for Forum Overlord of War?

    Hell after all the time I spent as a cop and in the military I probably earned it.

    I'm not a soldier, true - but my husband is and I've tended to all his wounds due to this whole issue and unlike some soldiers who come back and MOVE ON post debilitating injury he's actually continued to care for soldiers who've returned in an effort to help them put their pieces back together - eventhough his injuries are at the point where he can't do his former duties, which he loved just as much as you, his heart is still very much in it.

    My husband's fought, and I've nurtured, our children were raised without a father for countless years.

    My view might be a little "Athena-esque" but I'm not a pacifist nor am I against what we've been doing, etc etc.

    Don't worry, though - his views are just like yours and he and I have had this same arguement every deployment, every mission and amid every sacrifice we've ever had to make.

    So - while we all sit at our computers debating these feelings we have over what's happening over there and over here my husband deals with everyone's PTSD's - all the "could be Hassan's" and "possible Sherwoods" and "is disturbed" there is under his watch. Day in and day out.

    This is a great thing.

    Unfortunately war is hell, it is not nice and cozy. I am not trying to be condescending here so forgive my simple language. War is the last resort to a problem and it has horrible consequences that we MUST be willing to take and accept or it is pointless to even try.

    That's great. It is to bad allot of wifes and girlfriends don't realize how important that is to a solder miles from home.

    I hear you sister. Being married to a GI can be a real challenge on the home front and I salute your efforts.

    We agree with this - we know this better than a lot of people who debate these issues and have never been affected one way or another by any of it.

    That's great. It is to bad allot of wifes and girlfriends don't realizr how important that is to a solder mile
    I fully understand all sides of the "wife" issue and admit it hasn't been easy but I refuse to be a twattle like others - I could go into a lot of crap about other wives and how they ultimately treat their deployed husbands - but I digress.

    I am content to admit that my views differ strongly than my husbands and yours, and others - my reality is ALL based on the aftermath - I don't have combat experience, I am the wife and my husband's the one in the sh*t. So, naturally, my view is curved. This is actually a traditional women/war deal . . . I confess.

    *edit*
    I hear you sister. Being married to a GI can be a real challenge on the home front and I salute your efforts.
    Thank you.

    I hope that have a strong support - family or friend - it's essential and far too many soldiers get the shaft from the people who they're suppose to be able to depend on.

    I think THAT is worthy of an investigation and a full report - everything published picks apart the soldiers and the military, not often do you hear someone criticize their wives and girlfriends, etc, but it happens all the time. Cheating, lying, backstabbing, failing to keep up the finances and other problems, these things are very common and really complicate the return-home yet is unspoken of.

    I was shot at one time as a police officer, not a solider. I have no combat experience either. I do however have many friends and relatives much like you who have been in combat and they sound like your husband and myself.

    I am grateful I never had to go although I would have without hesitation. During desert storm I was in the NG serving as a Stinger Missile gunner. They really did not need us so they left us behind. While I was in in the 80's absolutely nothing happened that involved the US Army armor corp.

    So in the end I got lucky I guess.

    I really can't add to that. All I can say is you are soooo right.
