Just a question…

If, say, there were a law that 65% of legislators and executive branchers would be selected by conscription to fight in wars they desire to begin, do you think we would have as many of them? Or, more specifically, if GDub and Cheney had to go on patrol for IEDs on a daily basis with the Marines they ordered to Iraq, would they have been so hell-bent on starting this war (or the next in Iran)?  I ask this because it is becoming more and more obvious to me that wars are started and orchestrated by the social elites and fought on the front lines by the poor (relative to the wealth of those in positions of power).  This is just where I’m at.
