What other lies did the Japanese tell you while you were a POW? Did they try to sow discontent amongst the POWs, or was it strictly morale dampening jibes? Did you ever contemplate, or plan, escape, with or without your fellow POWs?

There are no plans to have a tickertape parade to mark the end of the war in Iraq. It seems to me, as a younger man who wasn't alive for the Korean War, that the public perception of war has changed so dramatically since then. Now it's just another news story, and not even covered as much as some game shows and celebrity gossip.

How does it seem to you? Do you feel the nature of war itself has changed? Or the reporting of it? Both?
