Today is Veterans Day and all vets deserve a great "Thank You" from all of us. It's easy to make gloriously patriotic graphics and wave the flag, but war is a lot nastier than all that. Most of us can't begin to imagine the hell our veterans had to live through.
I think this picture shows some of the reality. We should never put our military in harms way for light or frivolous reasons. However, when we are attacked, then it's time to commit the troops to punish the aggressors, to kill them and destroy their ability to make war. We should not waste the lives of our military trying to make democrats out of barbarians. Just my opinion.
Today's date is also interesting in itself: 11/11/11.
Comments and disagreement are welcome. If you are civil to me I will return the favor. Let's have a conversation.
I create a lot of original graphics that I post on this site and anyone is free to use them with or without attribution (although links are always appreciated). The graphics I create are signed "Stogie."
