LRC pick
The sorry sods of empire
It’s quite ironic that the leader of the only nation ever to drop the ultimate weapon of mass destruction on civilians, US President George W. Bush, is taking you folks on the same ride that the Japanese war-time militarists did to the Japanese public, and that lots of American folks still cheer him on.

It’s not like China or Russia or Osama are getting their rowboats out to invade the States next Tuesday...
There is a place for the military and not all soldiers are like this but what Mike Rogers describes is all too common.

For a truthful account of the World War II US Marine Corps read Goodbye, Darkness by William Manchester (search the blog).

P.S. Quiz: Who actually served with the military in the Pacific during WWII, John Wayne or Gore Vidal?
