Perhaps  I was raised in a less forgiving school--where we were expected to 
use  American lives prudently. I know that sounds pompous, but I can't 
think of  anything worse than pissing away the lives of youngsters entrusted to 
you by  their parents. 
There were a lot of lives pissed away on a lot of Civil War battlefields,  
and I don't think it accurate to say that all the officers responsible for 
said  pissing were incompetents.  Just human.
