Translation: my father's generation manfully accepted what they saw as their duty in WWII. I, on the other hand, either missed the war completely or dodged the draft in Vietnam. To make up for this, I will agitate for war and cheer while I send people a decade or two younger than me to fight and die. My own kids will remain either safe in college or will be too young to have to go to Afghanistan since my wife and I aborted our first couple pregnancies and waited until we were 40 to have our kids so we could enjoy life first.

That about sums it up.

You have to wonder about someone who thinks using tough rhetoric is remotely like storming Normandy beach. Hopefully the government will kill bin Laden and as many of his associates as it can and overthrow the Taliban and possibly the government of Iraq(if they're behind the anthrax) and then get out of that snake pit. The worst thing that could happen is a war comparable to WWII. Whether we get in a war like that is only partly in our hands, but to that extent the United States should try to avoid it. If we end up in that kind of war, I'll almost certainly volunteer, but it's hardly something to see as an opportunity.
