How can you arm rebels that you have suspicians that their numbers contain foreign fighters and also possibly elements of the elusive group called Al
quaeda ? also what is the end to that strategy, especially if our proxy war brings in other enemy proxy nations ?
Again I propose for all big talkers who have never served, including this idiot Mitt Romney, tell your sons to honor their committment to the United
States, march down to the recruiting office and sign up to help us when this escalates and calls for ground troops, now I did serve with someone of a
certain religious faith back in the eighties (1984) but he carried a rubber M16 in basic training instead of a real weapon like everyone else also we
never carried rubber ducks beyond a couple of days then got real weapons he kept his though , me and my fellow recruits were all wondering what that
was all about because I knew nothing about any religions that are against war or weapons that would be joining the Army to begin with, we found that
out because the drill SGT made a joke and big deal about it until the guy explained that his faith said he could not kill.
If your religious doctrine says you really are not supposed to be involved with war, violence, killing or politics really, how can you expect to be a
commander in chief of the worlds greatest military and be able to make decisions that actually make any sense, and how much would your religious
belief interfere with sound decision making, to me this is a real issue.
Since people will get all bent out of shape if you bring religious doctrine into the picture, the press has pretty much not made an issue or even
talked about it , but they did not hold back when questioning the president when he was a candidate and they pulled out everything they could to make
religion a big deal then, what's the difference now ? Arming any rebels has usually backfired on us, has he not learned from history that these sort
of actions contribute to wider escalation and involvement of our country and thus committment from Americans to this effort?
