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.
