It is very easy for “journalists” like David Brooks to sit on the sidelines of brutal and bloody conflicts and referee without having to answer for any damages or consequences and the worst of it is that they still get paid to write and show up on Sunday morning political shows. I have alway found it of interest that seasoned veterans of armed combat are often the last who want to get back into another war whereas the pundits and legislators are always the first. I would welcome making our draft return, it would force us to really think long and hard before sending our sons and daughters off when they don’t want a career in the military.

The cradle of civilization should be available to all, these destructive, fatal and barbaric wars over religious right and might will be the downfall of all. But for David Brook to sit there and call into question our President’s manhood is just over the top and wrong on so many levels.

We all have a right to exist.
