( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm not so sure I believe Kerry and his war record but on the other hand I don't believe Bush served his country at all.
Is taking part in a war or being in the army the only way to serve your country? (And to choose your president?)

Update

Just to make myself clear: if I were an American, I would have voted for Kerry, since I think that anything is better than a dangerous brainless and death penalty-lover like Bush.
That said, my original (unanswered) question came from the observation that many Americans seem to be obsessed with the war: for them only a soldier deserves to be their president, as if there was no other way to be good to their country than killing some enemy somewhere.
(I have great respect and regard for the soldiers, I just think that to be a soldier it's not the only way to be good to and to help the community you live in.)

Ciao,
Emanuele

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
