Just a quick note and observation: If the basis for wishing to end sanctions is humanitarian and compassionate, then this should really be universal. "Putting people down" seems pretty harsh. Are the majority of people in the world really unintelligent? and even if this is true, does this make them lesser people, as the implication asserts? As for people who join the military, it is usually those with limited options, either due to having grown up financially, educationally, and socially disadvantaged, and/or belonging to an ethnic group that is on the receiving end of racism. I don't think it is helpful to "judge" these people as somehow on the bottom or near the bottom of a human strata. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Yahoo!
