Recently, I’ve spent a lot of time talking with people and answering e-mail about the war in Iraq. I’m not sure why the interest on this matter seems to have peeked in the last couple of weeks, but I’m finding it increasingly difficult to remain neutral. Although I will not express my political views on the matter, I would like to say a couple things for the record.
1. I love, support, and will stand for our troops, until the day I die. I believe our troops need our support on every front, especially when on soil. We need to stop the Bull Sh%t the demoralizes our troops!!! Our troops have a job to do, and we need to empower them to do their job, and stay alive.
2. Our enemy’s agenda is deeply rooted in religious conviction, convictions that will not be bombed out of them. They are not afraid to die for their faith, and the West represents everything they hate. We can, and probably will win this war from a military perspective, but it’s impossible to silence the conviction of a man faith unless you change his heart. Which means this war will not solve the problem. This is not to say that the war is, or is not, warranted, it’s simply a statement of my opinion.
3. We cannot trust the media, they all have an agenda.
What are your thoughts?
