Your comments on education are right on target. That is one of our major problems as a society. Far too many Americans do not study their history (or anyone else's, for that matter). This means that we are apt to repeat it - over and over and over again. It is the same cycle as taught in the Book of Mormon: Peace and blessings and posterity leads to pride in our own abilities, which leads to sin and destruction, and finally (we hope) humility and the desire to repent and come unto the Father again. My fear is that those of us who belond to "Generation X" (or whatever they call themselves) who have no real experience with combat and a real war will just nod their heads in approval to whatever the media and the Bush administration proclaims as gospel. It's like the old adage of "if it's in print, then it must be true!" that plagued my grandparents' generation.
