Response to Wellstone ruled (Reply #1)

2. No, I've never met a general

I can see where they want to have wars and not diplomacy, because that was what they were trained to do and they want the chance to do it.

I was irritated by a posting calling Obama "weak" as if diplomacy is always "weak." People get killed in wars, and it's not "weak" not to want to them. Just tired of that thing men have to prove they are tough by always being ready for a fight. I wonder if women in the military will change that some.

The military is going to be authoritarian. But we are told we have to respect them and so I think they should respect us, and when we elect their CIC, to respect that choice regardless of whether it's their own or not.
