> Okay timespan puts you in late 60's as an estimation. My Son was in Desert Storm lost his eyesight. But no interrogations just harmful innoculations and the diseases sure to hit him and others later on. So How do the two wars correlate? Philipa


To answer your question with a quick, unstudied correlation, I'll say each was a military venture sold as a strategic mission that masked otherwise cultural intentions. More meaningful impacts of both wars, to me, is their public definition as distinct wars when in my experience, war is not so well bounded by troop deployments, but rather affects cultures continually over periods of time. WWII was but a particularly acute phase in a disease of irrational thought and speech that had permeated at least one side of that conflict. The irrational thought and behavior doesn't stop at the edge of the battlefield. It doesn't just become irrational when the obviously harmful effects become catastrophically acute.

And how do we, or particularly I, abide in a rhetorical context where almost every word I here spoken reveals the speaker part of an irrational context? When the measure of "rational" is social expectation rather than logical construction, who is irrational -- the person who seeks rational basis for values, or the person who considers social approval to be a rational basis for values?
