If you can't do any better than that, I give it to Walter by default. By the way.
It's as simple as that : "a few years playing army." Been to VA hospital recently? Yeh, I would like it if some of these shills for the military industrial complex, preaching American Imperialism living their good lives in the U.S. had some skin in the game. At a minimum I would expect Perl, Adelman, Wolfowitz, and Mead to at least been in the reserves for six months active duty or something along those lines. At maximum put their college degrees to work, become an officer, and command a combat infantry company.

Being a veteran I served 6 years as an infantryman during the Vietnam War.
