Parents Are Right to Protect Their Children from the Military

Obviously, the biggest reason for parents’ opposition to the military’s recruitment efforts would be to protect their children from losing their lives and limbs for no valid purpose. After all, ask yourself: What parents would place a higher value on the installation of an Islamic Shi’ite regime in Iraq, even a democratically elected one, than they would on the life or limbs of their own child? (US officials, of course, do claim that the deaths and maiming of US personnel, as well at the deaths and maiming of tens of thousands of Iraqis, have been worth it.)
