Hey thanks!

I've studied war long enough to know that armies, soldiers, etc. have to do the things that they do in order to win wars. "War is hell" is true enough...."It is good that war is so terrible, lest we should grow to fond of it"......

I think the best book that I ever read that truely describes the brutality of war is "River Run Red" (though I disagree with the thesis of the book, but that's another personal matter....HA!). It really brings to life the cruelties. But, in order to attain a military/political objective, one must accept these cruelties.

If I don't respond back, it's because I can only come to the website on Tuesdays, as I don't have a computer at home and I use this one when the boss is away!!....heehee....Don't tell anyone!!
