Sad to say, I don’t trust anything they say, anymore. They’re always in a CYA mode.

This whole thing about fallujah is freaking me out about Afghanistan.

Let’s never go to war again unless we have a real END STRATEGY. An end strategy is not just exiting. An end strategy means they won’t hit you again because their arm has been ripped off, and ANYONE WHO PERISHES ON OUR SIDE DIED FOR A GOOD REASON.

RIP.

I suppose I should have said God rest their soul. I just felt sad that fellow citizens out doing their job and protecting this country died in the line of duty— I said God bless them. mea culpa.

Stingers from Libya???? Remember, the main reason we were in Benghazi was attempting to recover those weapons that were stupidly allowed to escape after the fall of Qaddafi. Also, remember a few months back when the order was given to limit close air support for US ground troops in Afghanistan?? WHY??

Until God explains why anyone dies we cannot, and I REFUSE to, say they have died in vain. No greater love will be determined by the One who knows the heart of men.
