Arm Chair warriors never give up kicking Vietnam vets for losing the war. When the heads of many governments make such dumb decisions about going to war without a clue it is easy to blame the vets who actually fought the war. Bring us the heads of veteran scapegoats. Really amazing how we spent almost ten years in Vietnam and 30 years later we head for Afghanistan for another ten years.

You got that right my brother! They're doing the same thing today; the "cozyness" of the lobby with the Legislative guarantees better weapons are on the way boy's just hang in there!! Let's go looking for a way to try out our "new toys" Amazing isn't it. If they get things winding down in Iraq and Afghanistan trust me, we'll be in another one. Only the people that take the risk of being killed, maimed, dis-abled or tramatized pay the price of Freedom for not just American citizens, also for the people we happen to be assisting. Yet we are either or neither a Hero or a scapegoat.

The person who has nothing for which they are willing to fight,

nothing which is more important than they're own personal safety,

is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free,

unless made and kept so by the exertions of better persons

than himself.

You know the only thing the USA really does well anymore is build weapons. We sell them to everyone. We sell to S. Arabia and we sell to Israel. We sell to India and to Pakistan. We need live fire exercises so we need these small wars in distant places to test weapons.
