I understand that America can not stand by and let displaced Iraqi's suffer. Our involvement basically set up this result. Who were we to think that the people of Iraq could adequately defend themselves? I didn't have to be in the military to know this. So it goes!
There will never be peace in Babylon or anywhere in the middle east... at least in my lifetime. A world of peace is a concept that will exist in the future but only for a short time.
I grew up in a time where we could leave home and cars unlocked. Now I get to watch planes crash into buildings and rockets being launched from inside cities surrounded by civilians.
ISIS, Hamas, Taliban, Al qaeda. I'm learning that there are groups and factions who live to make war. To kill! To rape! To scourage!
I get to ride on my little motorbike wherever I like. I breath fresh air, drink clean water, go to church, buy whatever I can afford, and there are so many who would love just to have fresh bread. A small roof over their heads. A decent nights sleep.
However, just down the street someone is getting in a fight with a family member and then killing them. Someone is leaving a child in a hot car to drink in a bar or get their hair done. My bank just called my wife and someone stole her debit card number and made several purchases a thousand miles away.
You know! I think that there is a just a matter of time until the USA will be so troubled itself, we will be unable to help a nation in need.
