67. We never really had a discussion
because you kept misdirecting the issue at hand. I don't see what your latest comment about the military has anything to do with YOUR position that you'd be willing to support a war if one of your loved ones was captured, regardless of the consequences to others.

Perhaps that's because you're unable to morally defend said position?
