Response to naaman fletcher (Reply #24)

25. Clearly it's not "fine" with you

and you're entitled to your pacifist's position, but in stating it,

you are ignoring the obvious, and that is that: A. Having to "kill" people

also means you stand the chance of GETTING killed, or maimed YOURSELF

and I suspect the worker who makes the fast food choice is as likely to choose

the option for THAT reason as any other.

You ascribe a juvenile "I like to play with guns" mentality which may apply to some,

but certainly not all and I think you do them a disservice in failing to

recognize that MANY make the choice out of patriotism, however misguidedly.

Do you have NO veterans in your family?

I honor the courage and bravery of fighting men and women.

I'm sorry that you seem not to.
