Bring our soldiers home -- they're needed here

Posted: March 23, 2012 - 8:32am

With all due respect, we need our troops to come home from Afghanistan. Why? Because our nation needs to be rebuilt.  We need our men and women in uniform to come home & build our renewable resource infrastructure, our local food networks, our local money networks, and our industry (which has been outsourced to foreign countries).  We need good folks with integrity and experience in difficult situations to enter into government and leadership positions.  We need folks with skills to help us figure out solutions, especially to the burgeoning national debt problem.  We need these folks to come home, because they have great talent and there is so much to do here.

Thank you for taking the time to read through my message!

Agree. Being a vet, I support and honor our troops but this is a needless war that we have no business being involved in.
Bring our troops home NOW!

I agree that we need to bring

I agree that we need to bring ALL of OUR military home.
This is something that will never happen, never.
America is on it's final march towards that Single Global Union of ALL people for a Utopia with only a select few remaining in it.
America has become the inforcer of laws designed to usher in this Union of One at the End of the Age we now live in.
We can clearly see it's tenacles of control spreading World wide at an alarming rate for more control with demands for other nations not considered part of the fowl to either submit.
Submit or face national sanctions, as well as individual sanctions on their leaders for not submitting to the Unions will for ALL. It's coming to America soon as well, these sanctions for control & support for the controllers.
We are witness to OUR allies now being sanctioned for their lack of support for sanctions placed on a few nations, nations that refuse to submit to the desires of the USA. EU and United Nations World governing body.

We will never bring OUR soldiers home, in fact we will continue to add to & build up OUR forces in the Middle East & Pacific Ocean in preperation for WWIII & the plan of reducing the earths population for that Utopia, Union of One, for a select few.

I wish we would & could bring All of them home & just worry about OUR Land, Nation, but it's not gonna happen, sorry.
So thank & support OUR Vets that are home & pray for those that are gone.

Thanks for the letter.

Is it too soon?

If we are keeping a check on terrorism and keeping them on the run over there, who do you think will be on the run if we leave?

Hint: US

Obama is not in tune with America (obviously) so we better take his agenda with a grain of salt.

Lets carefully re-evaluate, and not pull them out just so because barracky wants to look good at the polls. I say,wait till after the election and a new Government is in place...then decide.

After all, haven't you already been suckered by obama once?

Jerry! Thanks for the uplifting and Positive comment!

Jerry, It is apparent to me that you woke up on the wrong side of the bed and then you were out of coffee when you posted this comment! With our current group of so called leaders in Washington I will agree the future doesn't look good for the USA. It is a problem that could be solved with the reduction of our nuclear arsenal of only 4 or 5 and turning the whole Middle East into a 5 foot sheet of glass, and removing a large number of the Muslim radicals in a matter of seconds.

Thanks cheapersmokes.I

Thanks cheapersmokes.
I always wake up on the same side & never run out of coffee.
In fact with the rice & beans i buy, i also buy coffee for stock.
I do find it interesting how people differ in their acceptance, opinions of Reality of the World conditions. Conditions that scream at us every day to wake up & smell that sulfur of war.
One considers the truth of reality expressed by some as one that is having a bad day, others consider those that share the truth as ones that are having a good day & desire to help others with reality, so who is right?

Please allow me to ask you to have an open mind and read some interesting info about the middle east & the nations of the world's desire to control Israel & Jerusalem & the Jewish people in the last days.

Zachariah, the 2nd to the last book in the old testament shows what will happen in the last days when the nation of Israel, the Jewish people are back in their land & control Jerusalem. This book shows that every nation will desire to control the destiny of Gods Holy land & Holy city of Jerusalem & his chosen people, the jews, chosen to bring forth the savior of the world, Yeshua.

Zachariah 12; -14; shows this desire of the nations to control Gods things. I like 14:12-13 which shows that all those that want to control Gods stuff will stand & watch as their judgement comes on them. They will watch as their eyes melt in their sockets, as their skin melts off their bones and their tongues rot in their mouths, as their judgement from God for trying to control what his chosen people, land & city of Jerusalem.
Sounds like nukes to me. I wonder how God knew that nukes would be used in the last days to destroy billions of people that have a desire to control others and especially those things which God has chosen as his? In fact God will control those nukes for his purpose of judgement against ALL these?

WWIII is coming & over 4 Billion will die in thisa one. 8 Million in WWI, 56 Million in WWII, it seems to increase in incraments of 7x, and finally 70x the death toll.

God gave us a way out of this coming judgement 2000 yrs ago. What amazes me is the idea that God will not someday say ENOUGH & finish his plans for mankind & creation from Day 1. God has a plan and we can either join in, or not, it's OUR FREEDOM of choice, with eternal results from those choices.
Have a GR8 Day, and watch the news, the news that daily shows what Gods Word says will come to pass and remember what 2 Peter 3:8-9 says about God not being slow in his promises of judgement, but wants to give everyone time to repent. But that time will come to an End some day when God says ENOUGH, then what?

Taking the HillA Warriors

Taking the Hill
A Warriors Journey Home is documentary by a Vietnam Vet that survived the horrors of war and came home full of anger & hate and thought he had gotten over it all until 40 yrs later he had flash backs.

I just watched this dvd produced in 2011 by this Vet & 3 of his pals from 1966 Vietnam War that also survived. They talk about they have struggled with their roll in killing other humans & the lasting effects it has on them & millions of other Vets, past & present.
My Pastor bought this dvd & gave it to me in hopes of helping my son Jake whom has returned again from the war against what is being called Radical Islam, i call it a war against Obedient to the Quran Islam.
Jake is very angry this time back home, more so than the many other times he was deployed, and is struggling more than ever before from what he had to indure in Afgan, which Jake said is by far worse than his many trips to Iraq.
He said that he is so messed up mentally that he struggles nonstop to cope with daily life back here in the USA.

I know that Jake is not alone in this & realize now the need to pray for OUR Warriors & their families daily, more so than i already do.
This was a very good film and could possibly help some Warrior that you know, or even your self in dealing with the PTSD from surviving war, either past or present, as well as family members that try and help their returning loved ones cope with the realities of war & death & the daily struggles they went through & still go through.
