Veteran's perspective appreciated

Thank you Colonel Pollock for sharing your insight and experiences in Iraq (Clarion, June 13). I can’t imagine what the families of the dead and disabled veterans must be thinking when they read about how their loved ones sacrifices have been for naught.

It would appear that not only are we giving up the fight against terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan, we are also giving up the fight for energy independence.  Today’s paper says that oil prices are starting to spike with the upheaval in Iraq, yet we continue to throw up roadblocks to the development of our own energy resources in this country. 

Then I read about how we gave up 5 terrorist who will surely rejoin the fight against us. Are we purposely trying to loose? What happened to this country?

I think you know the answer. Don’t forget to take a friend to vote this fall.
