You know how many here talk about time, place, history and relevance to today when discussing topics such as slavery and the Native Americans? This is similar to how I look at the fourth. If one refuses to take responsibility for the evils that have been done because they were "not there" to actually participate in the atrocities, can they then turn around and revel in the positives that have occurred in the distant past? Hence, I generally say a quiet "thank you" and move on, no huge celebration on the fourth. Further, isn't it different when you are defending yourself on your own property? If we had advanced on the British in England, would people have the same feelings?
The activities in the ME are so skewed, the mission so convoluted- you can not win without clear motives and plans. We are fighting an opposition that operates on a level that is so foreign to us-
