    And exactly what morality was that, William. If my 54 year old brain
    can remember correctly in the 50's and 60's we were taught about the
    duty one had to the country and how honorable it was to serve it. I
    don't remember being taught much about questioning it. That came with
    experience. I suppose that ignorance is no excuse though, and it is OK
    to blame people even if they do not know what they are doing, is that
    your point?
