Memorial Day: No more dying for nothing

I feel a little strange most Memorial Days. It is appropriate to honor those who gave "the last full measure," especially when they did so in what they honestly believed was the service of their country and were volunteers rather than conscripts. But all of our wars since WW II -- and I have my doubts about that one -- were so unnecesary, impelled by the miscalculations and false pride of incompetent political leaders. You can't help but feel doubly sad -- without doubting, as this Register editorial notes, the courage and devotion of those who sacrificed so much -- that so many young peoiple have died for the delusions and false pride of old fools like me.
