This puts a lot of my own thoughts and concerns this morning into sharp perspective, Carl. I couldn’t agree with you more. Enough. Debra

May God Rest his soul.

It appears that some elected officials who have never made the sacrifice are so willing to put others in harms way. Bring them home.

Couldn’t agree more.

And the tears begin, but for some they never end.

This is very powerful, Carl. I, too, hope the war ends soon.

I lost an uncle in WW2 and nearly lost my father in the same war. He still carries German shrapnel in his arm. My uncle left behind nothing but memories. But my generation has not forgotten him nor will my children. I don’t know why such fine young men must die in war but I am proud that he was a good soldier and that he died in a cause for which he truly believed.
I hope our young men come home soon but I also know the nature of the world means that fine young men will always be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice and it’s up to us to remember them…

Amen. Sadly not enough people are feeling the costs of the Afghan War. What a waste of resources and Our Youth. Not enough are feelin’ it, to cry out for a stop!

I wish that the powerful politicians give-up their geo-political games to embrace peace… but world is not what we wish most of the times due to the profit and power hungry military-business-politician relationship… But the saner ones like you have every right to raise your voice and I totally agree with you…

And I agree with you. It would be different if USA was defending itself here. Afghanistan produces 70% of world’s opium so why aren’t we napalming the poppy fields? Hmmm. There must be a reason. USA is no safer now. USA has over 800 out of country military basis and I think some degree of presence will remain to intimidate Iran and have forces in place for immediate strikes anywhere in that part of world. The megabanks and megacorps have more power than most allegedly sovereign nations. Appreciate your visits and comments.
