Absolutely. We definitely make a point of thanking military personnel for their service whenever we get the chance.
IHG,Yes we should support our troops. But, we should also do a couple of other things;One, we should always question why we are at war in the first place,are we really raping Iraq and Afghanistan because of Al Quaida or another 9/11 ?Shouldn't we first question our relationship with Saudi Arabia, where everysingle Hijacker obtained a visa from the consulate in Jeddah.Anyone who wants to support our troops who are fighting wars in that part ofthe world really needs to familiarize themselves with how it works.Saudi Arabia has no problem with us and our perpetual arms bazar, and providesmaterial support for us to attack our "shared enemies". What we need to realizeis they are the enemy, massive amounts of money dissapear into the royal familyand end up in the hands of people like bin-laden.The second thing we need to do is realize these wars are bankrupting this country.There has not been a war tax, we are financing the wars by devaluing our currancy,countries like China and Japan are buying our debt. What happens when our $623billion a year military loan comes due ?The notion that these wars are being fought for our freedom is laughable but itdoes have a hint of truth; considering Saudi Arabia's role as the worlds oil supplyexcess capacity "fixer" and that Iraq holds as much if not more reserves, andcould possibly match if not exceed Saudi production in the near future,then yes these wars are for our continued freedom to use cheap oil.World oil markets will forever be in our debt.Afghanistan is probably the most strategically valuable country in terms of Asianaccess to Caspian sea resources of oil and gas. If we can secure the pipeline route,we get a cut. Not to mention its vast rare earth resources.If you're going to support the troops, know what our government past and presenthas gotten them into, and learn how our collective ignorance has let them do it.Sincerelythisisnotmy12@gmail.comIf you want to learn how far the rabbit hole goes, email me.
