"There would probably be no American wars if the people in charge had to put themselves or their family members in harms way ( all due respect to people like McCain, who could have evaded service but did not ). "

I doubt it....England, during the Falklands War...which they didn't start but sure ended.....had one of the ROyals involved....think he was flying a fighter plane.....

It's not like Obama is going to send one of his young daughters under age 12 off to the Middle East, right? Or Hillary Clinton - landing under 'sniper fire' ho ho ho...in Bosnia......

How many Presidents had male offspring of fighting age?

Then again, a lot of US Presidents were in wars. Lincoln - up to his ears - George Washington - Teddy Roosevelt.....Grant...... Tyler.....Bush.......Eisenhower.......Jackson.....first hand...... and some had to deal with wars that others started like the War of 1812.......Spanish American War...Korean War.....
