Thanks Veterans!

Today is Veteran's Day.  Thanks to all our vets, either serving or retired from the military.  Although it's true that "freedom isn't free," I have grave doubts about the utility of our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan.  I do not believe that any Islamic nation is compatible with representative democracy.  In short, our efforts to transform barbarians into democrats is a fool's errand.

The lives of our military personnel should not be expended on dubious missions, nor used to "nation build."  I resent the death of every soldier, sailor, airman or marine who is shipped home in a box.
