Senators and Representatives want to send our combat troops to Syria, (boots on the ground)?
I have a suggestion for them. Every one of them who want American “Boots on the ground” should put their boots on and get their asses over there!
I am a combat veteran from the Vietnam War and I would not go over there to fight! You can call me a coward if you want to. The indigenous people over there are not fighting ISIS or (ISIL) in fact the Iraqi army we trained and armed just dropped their equipment and gave up, then they dug their own graves and were shot to drop into the grave. If the people don’t want to fight for their freedom, we Americans should not have to send our young military folks into harms way.
So I’ll repeat myself. If Senator McCain and Graham and Reps. like Boehner and others want American boots on the ground, let them put their boots on and get over there. While they are at it they can send their own children to join the military instead of ours.
I’m sick of these “chickenhawks” sending our young off to be killed or maimed!!!!
If you agree with me good. I’d like to hear from you. If you disagree with me , let me know where I’m wrong. I’ll read your answer and respond in a civil way.
Should we go back to the draft? Should women be drafted, too? Should there be ways for politicians family members to avoid the draft?
As you all know , I was drafted in 1967 when I was 21. I’m against the draft the way it was when I was drafted. If there was no way for “special” people to avoid the draft, I might change my mind about it. I do know that I would discourage my family members from joining the military.
So, lets discuss this issue.
