But here is the crux of it. The crux of it is emotions getting in the way of military structures. Just as women and gays should not serve in ships or in combat because they could go AWOL with a general while the country is at war, we should have no affirmative action and leftist college boys going in the US armed forces.
As for Jews, if there were a holocaust in Israel, and the US armed forces had for tactical and strategical reasons to sit there and do nothing while it would happen, I would not like to have Jews around to see that happening because I know most Jews would not stand it and not be able to see that national security and the union are above holocaustic catastrophies. That is why Lincoln refused to go to war for the slaves, but however saw that the South was developing terror tendencies against the Northerners as they were siding with England and the slave trade powers.
By the current standards of accepting gays and women in the military, I find this action against a Jew to be a double standard. However, let us make things clear, certain mixtures in the military do not apply. It is no multicultural pic-nic out there in war.
War is hell, what can I say, we cannot discuss about discrimination in military circles, but this is what 8 years of Clintonism has lead to.
This is nonsense. After the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 the war was very much about slavery. The second part of your sentence makes no sense however I read it. England was a leading voice against slavery and the slave trade by 1860 and never recognized the Confederacy. I expect the "irregulars" (such as Quantrill) would be classed as terr*rists today (although they would no doubt consider themselves freedom foghters) but they were active thoughout the war, and indeed before and after the war.
