War is hell

"You cannot qualify war in harsher terms than I will. War is cruelty, and you cannot refine it; and those who brought war into our country deserve all the curses and maledictions a people can pour out. [...] You might as well appeal against the thunder-storm as against these terrible hardships of war. They are inevitable, and the only way the people [...] can hope once more to live in peace and quiet at home, is to stop the war, which can only be done by admitting that it began in error and is perpetuated in pride." -- General William Tecumseh Sherman to the citizens of Atlanta.

  2. I forgot that disclaimer.

  3. BTW, that black bald medic makes my gaydar go off big-time. That's why "Don't ask don't tell" was to me a travesty, sooner or later it would have caught this guy and kicked him out of the service, and people would die.

    If someone can contribute, who the fuck should care whether he's gay or not? Siiiiiiigh....

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
