Seth bush sends a message to terrorists (97* d) RE: bush sends a message to terrorists 31 Dec 00

I'm personally grateful for all my draft-dodging ancestors who came to the good old U.S.of A., by managing to stay out of the King's army, the Czar's army, another King's army, and all the other armies that marched and shot and killed each other across Europe for the last 400 years. It doesn't make me sad nor do I feel shame if one of my forebears may have been a coward, or a draft dodger in the 100 years war, or the Franco- Prussian war, or some Napoleonic campaign or some other war. Makes me think that he was a guy with some brains(maybe), some luck(maybe), some money (probably not) who saw a chance to save his ass and took it. If not for him, no me. I think that most people see those conflicts through a long enough historical lens so that the waste, the insanity is clear, but it's more dificult when you or you family are involved. Then your death is supposed to mean something. I think that an individual is responsible for his or her own life. Hand that over to the generals and God help ya' Seth from China
