I guess I’ll never understand. Why war? Why do we have to go to war in all these different countries? Some people tell me it’s because of the economy, others tell me it’s to protect the United States. Either way, or for whatever reason, it seems sickening that our young people have to give up their lives in strange lands.

It seems to me we should protect our economy, our lands, by staying home, getting our government to do better with making jobs for those that need jobs, guarding our own borders, in general taking care of our own in our own country!

Afghanistan will always be at war. The same goes for Iraq and those countries that can’t get along among themselves. So, I ask . . . why?
