War is ugly, maybe if we saw more of the results of war we wouldn't be so quick to send our troops into harms way.


People like war as long as they don't have to see the reality of it.

It was 1959 when Dick Cheney, then a student at Yale University, turned 18 and became eligible for the draft.

Eventually, like 16 million other young men of that era, Mr. Cheney sought deferments. By the time he turned 26 in January 1967 and was no longer eligible for the draft, he had asked for and received five deferments, four because he was a student and one for being a new father.
