A sorrowful statistic

I recently read this information about the Suicide rate among our Veterans. Unbelievable; Every "80" hrs, a veteran commits Suicide. Why? To be able to survive in the Muslim Nations, you need eyes on the front, side, and rear of your head. They proclaim they will kill all Infidels and all Christians in the world. What a wonderful thing for the human mind to try to accomplish. Yet we send billions of our dollars to try to appease them, which does not work except to bankrupt the U.S. of A. The argument is by all the donors is that we must save the world. Well, we have people going hungry, probably within a half mile of our homes, and the homeless go uncounted.

When serving in the Navy during the Korean war and going ashore in South Korea right after it ended, and serving on shore patrol duty, we went ashore, with a belt and Billy Club attached as our only weapon; neither one was needed. The Children loved all the servicemen and the adults were all working or no bother to us. You could not do that in a Muslim country without full battle gear and bulletproof vests and being aware of all movement around you. It is about time to get our priorities in order. One persons opinion.
