We almost always forget why we go to war because of the horror of it and sometimes we think that if we just leave things alone the status quo is more appetizing. Even when the situation is or seems contrived we try to do our best often without the results we eenvision. When I was offered the chance to stay in Nam for a few months and return the army would give me an early release from active duty, it seemed like a no brainer. It was about the people. People who had suffered through "a hundred year war," people who when treated with respect would share their last morsel of food with a total stranger. People who lived in constant fear of their enemies and their own government. People who just wanted what we all want. It's all about people.
