Rules of Thumb weighs in on the disconnect.......

While he doesn't do it with Fred's flair, or slant, Alan Webber
seconds his emotion..............

"Americans have little connection with this war.  There is no
draft. Taxes haven't gone up to pay for it. We're just putting
it on our national credit card."
"There's no national dialog about it, no conversation as to
why we're there, what the price is we're willing to pay, or who
has to pay that price."

"The disconnect is almost total, except for the young people
we send over to do the fighting and the killing and the dying.
Today, America is at war. And if you don't go to the movies to
see a documentary, you'd hardly know it here at home.
And that's a real tragedy"
