Do not forget what is done in our name.
That's the best you can do? Americans beating up prisoners and Stevens making allegations he could never substantiate in a court of law? Hardly equates to the holocaust does it?

Remembrance Day is a commemoration of the combatant victims of war, not of martial victories or specific causes furthered by military means. Even the soldiers of a victorious army in a just war must be considered victims, in a sense. I am happy to recall their sacrifices. I only hope their commemoration results in fewer such sacrifices in the future.
