On a related note: When you support a war, you should clearly believe the purposes for the war and the methods used to wage the war are worth risking the health and life of your adult son or daughter. The question is not: Is the war worth risking “our soldiers” lives? Rather, a better question is: Is the war worth putting your son or daughter in harm’s way? Answering that question alone will not determine whether or not you support a war, but it will improve the quality of your position on any war.
