Another War Again?
The one thing the world don't need now is another world war. I don't know the thinking North Korea is doing at this time but war is not the answer for any country or it's allies. I suppose their leader just wants to flex his muscles and his new found authority of their Army using missles to fire on the US. To me being a seasoned veteran, I view him as a very young gentleman with authority handed down to him from his father and he does not have the matruity yet to be in charge of an Army wanting to fire missiles at the US without repercussions to his country.
North Korea lost a great number of troops and devided the country for good between North and South Korea with a demilitarized zone between the two countres that has stood since the war ended. The US lost 38,000 troops and many wounded and well over 58,000 lost during the Vietna our aliesm war killed and many wounded and injured for life. The US and it's allies has been on the defense of this country and our allies for what seems like forever to me.
We are still in Afghanistan fighting a 10 year war with Iraq and Bosnia before that time. We have suffered many losses in wars both men and young women alike. Wars are very costly and it cost the US dearly to invade Iraq 10 years ago with over 6,200 troops killed again in Iraq alone. Our government basically is broke, loss our AAA credit rating and we got bills that can hardly be paid with all the blame pushed toward our President.
Should we be fired upon with missles from North Korea we must continue to defend our countries and our allies in Guam and our state of Hawaiia. From that time no one knows how we will fair with jobs, money, and housing for all our citizens. Me being a survivor of a stroke years ago makes me feel I can't help defend my country as I have in the past. That is a sad felling should this come to past. For me prayers are in order that North Korea will hold their peace and their missles on their land..
This was not the blog I wanted to write but looking at TV and seeing the news it's a. little upsetting to think of another war and we can hardly pay the bills on time while this country is so far in debt right now!
