I can never understand the cut backs in the military. Right now civilians are being used as recruiters and the MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) is being civilianize. I am appalled that this government will stand by like the three monkeys with fixtures over their eyes, ears and mouth. Ever since the cold war ended the powers on the "Hill" has sought to reduce the size of the military and expect the quality of work to stay the same with half the staff. The reason why the military is having such a hard time is because their boss does not care about them. The only credible representative that was in this current administration was Colin Powell and I understand why he left. I have looked into the eyes of hundreds that served in the chaos called "War on Terror" and feel the confusion on why Uncle Sam does not love them. I do admit that there are some that serve this country without question. My concern is the government placing so much on the shoulders of those in uniform.
Condi, George, Rumsfield & Dick never served as Colin or George SR. Right now the fate of this government is in the hands of people that have no concept of the military.
Anyone that insults those men & women that are getting their hands dirty in the sand.... Go to hell!!!! These kids unknowingly sign their souls to Halliburton (DEVIL) and until someone starts a coup they'll be over there indefinitely.
Al-Falaq or The Dawn
Qul aoozhu bi rubbil falaq; min sharri ma khalaq
Wa min sharri ghasiqin Izha waqub
Wa min sharri ennaffathati fi el oqad
Wa min sharri hasidin izha hasud.
"I seek refuge with the Lord of the Dawn,
"From the mischief of created things;
"From the mischief of Darkness as it overspreads;
"From the mischief of those who practice Secret Arts
"And from the mischief of the envious one as he practices envy."
