I believe that war starts because of selfishness and greed. I do not know that we will ever be rid of it, because we will never be rid of selfishness and greed.
I do not believe there is such a thing as a JUST war. Greed and selfishness are just plain wrong. But I do believe there is reason and necessity to fight in wars because greed and selfishness exist.
I believe we should exercise great caution when making the decision to enter into conflict, then go confidently should that be the decision.
I believe our country has a military full of dedicated men and women ready at a moments notice to protect what ever any one believes to be THEIR FREEDOMS...even when it conflicts with their own beliefs. That to me is simply amazing.
Thank you to those who have given their lives in service to this country -- whether it was their choice, or it was chosen for them...so that I can write freely about what I believe.
