I think, for me anyway and surely others, one wonders if we are truly fighting for America's freedom in some of the theaters our sons and daughters find themselves fighting in. While Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan could be debated pretty vigorously, in the end it comes down to Americans fighting in support of other American who have been deployed to the latest God Forsaken Hellhole. It doesn't matter whether the whole thing came down to a disagreement by a couple of assholes in too high of a position.

As far as Iraq, Afghanistan, we were at the very minimum Payback for 9-11-2001. A price has to be paid at the minimum.

Sadly, I don't think we've accomplished much in Afghanistan relative to our losses, but those who fought there can always be steadfast in the knowledge they were fighting in support of Americans,even if those Americans were their brothers in arms.

NOT the worst way to distinguish yourself.

I look forward to the day when we take threats such as the muslim plague seriously enough to deal with it as it must be dealt with to achieve victory.

In the meantime, all of these men and women who have fought for America have probably lived more in a couple years what most Americans do in a lifetime and for that I'm jealous at this point.
