The reason why

Mothers are always telling their daughters that girls develop faster than boys. What they fail to mention is that the boys don’t catch up until their 50s or 60s, if then.

That’s one reason men are always starting wars.

The second is that we’re the poor bastards who have to get it up, and that requires a lost of posturing and bullshit, with an occasional war thrown in for good measure.

Remember that as Obama speaks at West Point, tonight.

Your right on target. Issues like the environment, the poor, the sick and seniors are not macho enough for these people to take-up. They prefer war, gambling, drinking and capitalism(making profits at someone elses expense which they can brag about)-self destruction. They will take the rest of us with them. The saddist part,they will cause the destruction of most if not all the other species on the planet.

It's all about doing the "guy thing."

Throughout the only history I have been able to read (here comes a simplistic and absurdist reduction), "men" have only been both successful and consistent with respect to two endeavors: one is starting and fighting wars and the other is subjugating women. At all else, we have been miserable and despicable failures. We cannot govern, we cannot administrate, we can not sympathize or epathize and we cannot show understanding or compassion. We are largely a rotten bunch.

If Obama were indeed to"speak" tonight, I might listen. But he won't. He will just deliver another brilliant, bullshit-laden rhetorical device of deception. You watch. I'm busy. It has already been completely over-hyped, anyway.

Someone here seems to be suggesting that "war" is the ultimate in UN-natural "male enhancement"....with all the awful "side-effects" (and more) mentioned above by david m.

Well, they've named their "poison." There's dead-certain to be a lethal dose of it sooner or later. Looks like AfPak will be the "pill" those damned devils in the Pentagon will finally choke-ON, rather than -down.

Barack Obama probably can't do a thing about it, either.
