Life is never simple. War is never simple. Blind obdience is unpatriotic.

Excellent post, WW.

Reminds me of an elementary school teacher I once had. He said something to us I will never forget, and that I repeat today in my own classrooms.

"It is not only your right to question your government, but your responsibility to do so. Anything less would be un-American."

He was, by far, the most openly patriotic teacher I ever had, btw-- I remember watching those Glen Campbell specials in class.
And although a rabid Kentucky fan, ol' Mr. Clemens was still a good teacher ;-).
