10 long years, my brother....what had been achieved?
Did terrorism ended? Did the body bags count justified you being there? Did it made US respected? So many questions unanswerable.
You tried your best to defend yourself and the military industrial complex's actions there.
But it is not you to be doing the defending, for you were just a simple pawn in the bigger stakes. Even if you were the machine gunner who mowed down
the lives of the innocent, the ultimate blame lies not in you, for wars do terrible things to humans, to the enemy and to yourself.
You were only fighting an idealism, a radicalised one that no amount of bullets can stop. You will have to kill everyone there, but in the end, was
that the purpose you signed up for? And what would that have made you - a hero or pyschopathic killer of your own race - fellow humans?
You had achieved nothing worthwhile, stopped nothing destructive as the shias and sunnis now freely muscle for power, and your mind contaiminated by
savagery no human should be exposed to, a throwback to the barbarism that mankind had sought so much to be elevated above from.
You can no longer distinguish morality and can only define it by the barrel of your gun.
Step back, my brother, the killing of your fellow brothers must end - americans, jews and arabs against each other. You will have to make a stand, to
continue supporting the murders (platitudes easily explained away as # happens), or to end it and find better solutions of engagement for peaceful
co-existant amongst different cultures.
There are more of rational us than the radicalized them from corporations, political leadership and religions.
