just found "daly thoughts blog" here's some words:
how you word the question
It depends on the meaning of the word consistent
it is a conservative blog by a computer programmer named Daly, which briefly scanning makes me wonder
isn't the current support of the military rooted less in the "my country right or wrong" sentiment of the 20th century, but in a reaction to the way that vietnam war protesting was seen to lead to lack of support for returning soldiers (who lost a war)?
but isn't part of that "lack of support" lack of medical (especially mental illness) support and ongoing counseling and job assistance rather than lack of parades and flags at funerals and yellow stickers next to christian fish on beat up minivans?
or, alternately, a difference in focus -- isn't everyone saying "this death didn't have to happen if our president didn't lead us into waging this illigitimate war"? -- and why is that sacrifice less heroic or tragic if unnecessary/a non sequitor? isn't it more so? the soldier as victim and hero -- one gesture of the futility of attempting to live a valued human life under a regime that values nothing but the economic status quo?
