The rolling military debates today had a lot of potential to go south fast. Heated topic, many layers, passionate feelings on all sides, many shades of gray.

But in the end everything remained mostly civil, if sometimes a bit heated. But heat can be illuminating. So thanks for the good conversations, everyone. I don't know about you, but I mostly listened and thought things, challenging things. Which, I hope, is the best thing we can do here for each other.
