I know there was another thread on this earlier, but I must say that everyone should watch the Ken Burns documentary entitled "The War." PBS has been showing all of the series for the last week or two. I am a generation X-er and I must admit that I learned a lot about the war and a lot about how evil the world can be.
The massive piles of dead bodies shown in the concentration camps were almost more than one can comprehend. The tales of suffering by many of the veterans were shocking. This film should serve as a reminder of the cost of liberty. MOst people of my generation for sure, have no idea what this means, but this documentary will give them a much better idea.
One man stated that there will always be wars because human beings are "an agressive animal." He got that right.
