In Viet Nam, not only did over 55,000 of our boys die, one of the major assaults on our troops was providing them with illicit drugs. If you’re not old enough to remember, ask someone. (Incredible pictures on this link.) It wasn’t just that they were not supported ….. Many, came home addicted, ….. mentally disabled!
I call(ed) my brother-in-law a “Nam casualty” although he died in 1981 ….. 9 years after he came home, he stuck a gun in his mouth. He couldn’t face life any longer; he’d come home addicted, lived on the edge, and it never eased ….. his brother took care of him but … he stuck a gun in his mouth ….. I said that already, didn’t I? His brother Jack, died of life in the fast lane and Chuck was alone for the first time.
Hearing little, regarding this issue now, ….. about our troops in Afghanistan, when that country is awash in opium, marijuana, and hashish, …. gives me little confidence that this entire scenario, is not reoccurring.
Drugs are not only accepted there, …. in Afghanistan, they’re a staple of the economy! The brother of President Karzai is said to be THE major drug lord!
In light of this, …… I verbalize this again.
Our troops are worth protecting, nut just supporting!
George Soros, who seems to OWN president Obama, as well as the media ….. while he and the media push for legalization of illicit drugs, …. plus the fact that we can obviously, no longer count on our media to tell us the truth ….. as they seemed to during Nam ….. this just makes no sense …..
Osama’s in Iran. We armed them to defeat Russia, ….. Time moves on; …. this is NOW, Obama’s war!
I vote for bringing our troops home and rotate them from border watch. It’s more than just our personnel in D.C., that needs to change!
