"You can have all the advanced war methods you want, but, after all,
nobody has ever invented a war that you don't have to have somebody
in the guise of soldiers to stop the bullets."
Will Rogers
(1879-1935) American humorist

Wouldn't it be cool if we could do wars with paintball, and if you got shot you would just have to go home?

    Make sure politicians' children are sent to war first -- that'll make then think twice about invading other lands in the name of peace.

    Great idea! Send their children first, then the politicians. It would truly be a short war.

    Sadly our hi-tech wars have an element of the moral discontent that paint wars would allow. Our children/soldiers who play and are trained with video games to fight an enemy that goes poof at the press of a button is right up there with the fact that there is no draft--americans cannot fathom what this war is like on the ground for most Iraqis and are lulled into a moral indifference to suffering and our responsibiltiy for it. Will Rogers' political wit was really amazing, a mid century version of Chris Rock.
