Yes and the US is again placed in the position of addressing a problem related to the Eastern
Hemisphere. Personally I feel it is sickening, If the United States focussed all its recources on improving conditions in the Western Hemisphere. Life
in this part of the world would actually be as enriching as it is to all Citizens of the US (maybe that is something to consider in relation to a
Alas the Eastern Hemisphere cannot feed itself. She does not have suffcient recources to provide employment for 75% of her population. Her countries
have all armed themselves with nulcear, chemical and biological weapons and no one seems to want to get along. Personally, I do not want to see any
more American soldiers die in the Eastern Hemisphere. Because of what seems as an inherent lack of respect for each other, in that part of the world
(its been almost 100 years and that is enough).
My impression is this, if weapons of Mass destruction do exsit in Iraq. Rather than risk the lives of American soldiers, we should determine exactly
how much C-4 (explosive) can fit into the hull of a C-5 Galaxy (our largest aircraft) and apply such a weapon tactically against whatever threat, can
potentiually result in the death of several thousands of our troops. This type of weapon would be conventional in that there would be no radiation.
But it is true that the resultant explosion would be equivalent to about 80 killotons (that is if the US does not have a more powerfull conventional
explosive in its aresenal, than what is known as C4).
MM I recently had a conversation with Thomas Crown about "Army Algebra". Some may have been confused about what that exactly means. When a battle
has ended and one side is the victor, it is there responsibility to identify there dead and takes them out of the battlefelid (first). This entails
not only retreiving bodies but as well body parts. Phiscally you have to prepare separate piles (when it comes to body parts) One for our side one for
the other side. You gotta get real close and personal you know. The Geneva Convention and all that cover all, Identifying differences in what is left
of the uniform as well as physical differences are real important. One cannot help but do the very best to get it right so the next time around, one
is chosen to make sure that the Job is preformed correctly. Suffice to say when understanding what war is all about this duty makes clear a potential
definition (making sure the body parts are delivered to the right funeral).
For nearly100 years American troops have died as a result of the fact, that the Eastern Hemisphere cannot get their act together. It has been made
apparent to me that dealing with their problems are necessary. As the radioactive cloud which would develop otherwise would affect this hemisphere
environment (if I could find a way to avoid that, guess what would be my response to eastern hemispheric issues
Genin (is it really appropriate at this time to call you that) you changed your avatar from that of a soldier to that of a leader of men (that is what
Ronins do). Perhaps it would be best to consider all options and draw a conclusion based on common ground.
To be honest young Ronin would like to hear your thoughts? Do not fear your conclusion will be taken to heart, as it is your first one.cool:
