It's Armistice Day here in

It's Armistice Day here in France, and a public holiday. It's taken very seriously too.

It used to be Armistice Day

It used to be Armistice Day for us as well.

Can't blame the troops for

Can't blame the troops for bad decisions by the desk-riding, pen-wielding, commanders in DC. Even if I don't like and don't agree with certain military decisions made by my government, the poor bastards on the ground don't have a heck of a lot of choice, they signed a contract and can suffer real penalties for not upholding it.

No problem, I find pride in the fact that some few of our citizens decide to give up rights and safety to protect the rest of us and our democratic values, I just wish our elected officials felt the same way.
