What is the allure of war? If there is no such thing as progress then war is just a morality play wrapped in different uniforms. If morality is relative then not only have we killed the gods but also heroism. Without heroism there is no nobility and war is just a series of species eliminating acts of survival of the fittest hardly worthy of novels. These are random thoughts from the comfort of home while men and women on endless tours of duty die.
