But let's not forget that war is a brutal business and rights are routinely ignored. Millions of American men were drafted, for example, and not just interned into a safe camp, but put on the front lines to fight and die. These were the men who really had their liberties violated.

You summed up my thoughts exactly Seattle, I just had some trouble putting it into words.

It's easy to armchair quarterback 60 years later, then, I'm not so sure. When catastrophe occurs, perspective changes. When catastrophe is solved, perspective returns to normal.
