Okay, so John McCains son in going into the marines. My Indifference couldnlt be larger... but what is this article doing in the "investments" section of Reuters news?

No military industrial complex here, no siree.


Depending on his unit, the younger McCain could eventually wind up in Iraq where Marines have experienced heavy fighting, Time reported. Marines are also in combat in Afghanistan.

The percentage of members of Congress with children serving in the military is only slightly above 1 percent. Sens. Christopher Bond, a Missouri Republican, and Tim Johnson, a South Dakota Democrat, have had sons serve combat missions in Iraq, Time said.

Hmmm... Wonder how vehement a Bush-pusher he'll be when he gets back (if even he's one now...)

Wonder if he'll ever see the sands of Iraq up close and personal. I hope he doesn't and I hope those who do see them daily will be brought home as fast as possible.

At least someone is practicing what they preach. That's all I kept saying to John Kerry -- dude, when debating ask when Jenna and Babs Jr. are going to Iraq because it's so justified!

Exactly. I'm glad at least one of them will have a son 'in theatre'. The distance between the policymakers and the reality on the ground has had one too many degrees of separation.
