RANT: Pacific wasn’t as good as BoB; scarier in some ways

Just finished watching the conclusion of Pacific. It was better than Band of Brothers in that it gave some feel for post-war PTSD. Those guys had to be nuts. Kill or be killed in the mud. Against the “crazy” Japanese. To be manipulated at home by politicians. Made whatever FDR did deserving a special place in Dante’s lowest circle of Hell. Argh! Wilson did the same thing leading up to WW1.

I like Robert Heinlein’s idea in his novel Starship Troopers that only veterans should be able to vote or run for office. Be a lot less wars!

    It just took ages to get started. The last five episodes were great. The first five were poor. Band Of Brothers was great all the way through.
