IMHO, Honoring all soldiers is the politically correct thing to

do. In this country anyways. But apparently this is not only an American belief.

"Gott mit uns" (meaning God with us) is a phrase commonly used on armor in the German military from the German Empire to the end of the Third Reich. Apparently it was also the politically correct thing to do in Nazi Germany also.

At least 132,000 civilians have died from 10 years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a new study by Brown university. And that’s a conservative estimate. A total of 4,486 U.S. soldiers were killed in Iraq between 2003 and 2012. Is it morally and ethically right to honor the people who did the killing? Should we also honor all the abortion doctors?

What is the cost of killing? I believe it is far beyond our conscious comprehension.

BTW, I'm 57 year old. How many of my rights have been saved, and protected over the past 57 years by soldiers and all of the various wars? Which wars actually protected my rights and liberty?

IMHO, wars are all about protecting profits and expanding control to reap more profits for a select few.
