    No. They don't want people to enlist. If they didn't want people to be mislead then they would offer up their own information, not attempt to prevent all enlistment in the area. And are there moral wars? War isn't fought because people just want to do the right thing.

    I'm not certain of this. I think a country could conceivably do everything right and still end up in a war.

    I'm not talking about any country in particular, I'm just talking about a hypothetical country.

    I would agree with that. I simply meant that rarely is a war motivated solely by moral riteousness (sp).

    Interesting question. It's not hard to pick out potential examples, though. For example, Belgium in 1940. They're sitting there minding their own business and being neutral, and WHAM all of a sudden Germany has blitzkrieged all over their @sses on the way to go take France.

    It wasn't anything Belgium did. They just happened to be sitting on the shortest way around the Maginot Line.

    I just got back from Sacramento, CA Tuesday. We spent a great day at Half Moon Bay and enjoyed a great concert at UC Davis. As much as I love it in beautiful California, I am SO glad I don't live there. The folks in Berkeley have lost their minds.
