Trump will eventually be gone.

The pardon will not.

2. I spent Memorial Day reading and watching info on the My Lai

Massacre there in 1968. 500 innocent Vietnamese women, children and elders were murdered by Americans. They were unarmed, eating breakfast and were brutally rounded up and shot Nazi-style. The soldiers raped them then killed them (scalped, slit throats, cut out tongues, cut off hands, burned whole families alive in their huts, and murdered all the animals). When word got out a few years later the govt had a huge cover-up. The only person punished was Lt Calley who was under house arrest. Nixon pardoned him and Carter also got support from Americans to forgive him since he was "only following orders" (he personally killed over 100). He got so much fan mail that he had to move once. The Nazis at Nuremberg used the same defense..."we were following orders".

There are no good wars.

7. The only exception

I would have is the obvious: to defend innocent people from slaughter. So, I'm not a total pacifist. Don't think most folks are.

Where the problem arises is when innocent country men are drafted into a war of aggression. Swearing an oath to "defend" a country often has nothing to do with the word "defend" but rather with making a dictator, crooked politicians, and corporations rich. Most all of us here know this.
