You will hear every former President proclaim that the hardest thing to do is to send our fine men and women off to a foreign land to engage in combat. You hear how the POTUS and members of our “fine” congress take every imaginable step before signing off of an act of war.
The President, Senators and House members assure us that our brave men and women of the armed forces have the best equipment in the world and every precaution will be taken to save the lives of United States soldiers…our soldiers.
Our brothers, our sisters, our mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, friends and our countrymen and women.
These citizens, the bravest of the brave, are the heartbeat of our existence, our security and our future. They are willing to give the ultimate sacrifice in the name of righteousness and freedom…their lives.
We as a nation should ensure, in every way possible, that the lives we lose in combat are kept to an absolute minimum no matter the cost. Washington keeps telling us that our troops are given “state-of-art” equipment, with Body Armor topping the list.
