"Every Man's life diminishes me." -- John Donne
I honor the warriors, not the war. All of them.
As for one life being more valuable than another -- when YOUR son/daughter/nephew/neice/neighbor/whatever dies, they are "more valuable" to you than others because you know them and it's personal.
Perhaps if war was personalized, REALLY personalized, like you had to kill the guy you had just enjoyed some beer with, face to face and mano a mano, it wouldn't happen.
