War All the Time

As long as human civilization has existed, so has war.  I don't like violence. I don't really know whether or not it was necessary to deploy troops after the 9/11 attack but I don't think that really matters. I think its time that our country decides that our troops come home. Soldiers are dying everyday and that goes for BOTH sides. Who is really benefitting from being in Iraq? Regardless our soldiers cannot be forgotten. We can ***** and complain as much as we want about gas prices, waiting in lines at the airport (or drive thru or dmv or water fountain), and we can shout profanity to old speeches Bush made BUT we have to remember our soldiers. 

I've taken them for granted. The horror they experience everyday... I'm ashamed I complain about half the crap I experience... atleast I'm not bleeding in some fox hole trying to find my buddies head.


Thank you troops, thank you soldiers, thank you for my freedom. Thank you for my safety... and thank you for doing what the rest of our country's population is too afraid to do. God bless the men and women who are dying for the over priveledged citizens of the United States of America. Thank you so much.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." - John Stuart Mill
