Mossback BS: Armistice Day 2016 open thread (45) RE: BS: Armistice Day 2016 open thread 10 Nov 18

the men who marched off to war (to a great extent) believed they were doing so for the right reasons

Also true for the Confederates in 1861-65, George Custer's and Chivington's boys in the Indian Wars, U.S. troops in the "Philipine Insurrection"[sic], Japanese & German troops in WW II, Western troops in Viet Nam & Cambodia (Hi, Kissinger!), & etc., etc., etc.

Your point being how easily people can be enlisted as true believers for any cause & facts be damned??
