I've been chilling out, cruising the blogosphere in search of interesting blogs from military people tonight.
I found a couple, (I've emailed asking permission to hop link to them), you know, courtesy type of thing.
Sort of like asking a father for his daughters hand in marriage.
I was quite amazed at how some of our troops feel that those of us who are against George Bush's war feel that we don't support them!!
I couldn't disagree more, at least on my part, I can't speak for everyone, but I support the men and women serving to protect this great country and us, 100%.
If I was 30 years younger, I'd be over there with them.
I do not support George Bush, and I'll tell you why.
I think he lied to get us into this war, and I don't think he has a plan to end it.
I don't think there will ever be a good ending to this story.
I'm afraid that Iraq is to divided by sectarian issues to ever come to an amicable agreement between all sides.
Yeah, I told myself I was going to chill on this $hiatt tonight.
Any way, I remember as if it were yesterday the way the peace freaks treated the guys comming home from vietnam. Those of you serving now, weren't born yet.
I was headed home on leave from BIT at Fort Jackson, a PVT2,
that's E2 now, and a group of us in class a's were waiting for a flight to Newark in Atlanta. We were accosted by a group of hippies, spitting at us and calling us baby killers. Really made one feel proud to be a soldier.
Most of the vets were smart enough to leave the uniforms on post and travel in civis, but being in training we had orders to travel in dress uniform.
What I'm trying to say is my opposition is not to the war, or the troops fighting it, it is to the bold, redneck ignorance of the commander in chief who is bent on clearing his legacy at all cost.
And to the fact that he has no plan to end the conflict.
To quote W Clement Stone, "No wind blows in favour of a ship without a course".
It's time for someone to step up and map out a course to end this mess.
Maby when the people of this country can see a picture, or blueprint of what the finished product will look like, we can accept further action.
People are going to continue to die there's no way around it.
We need to now what they are dieing for.
May god bless and protect all of our troops.
