Every time I see a bumper sticker reading, "Support Our Troops", I want to puke.  After 18 years fighting two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, what do we have to show for it?  Answer: nothing but human misery!

I remember when I slogged through basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia, 1968, E-8-2, I figured I was a walking dead man.  My buddies wrote me from Nam with letters that said, "The Military Industrial Complex" that Ike talked about makes those CEO's tons of money and gets us killed.  We're not trying to win this war, just prolonging it.  Westmoreland is full of sh*t." 

In Iraq and Afghanistan, we've wasted $6,000,000,000,000.00 (trillion) on 'forever wars' that accomplished nothing but death and destruction of people and countries.  Presently, we spend over $4,000,000,000.00 (billion) monthly.  Note that we carry a $22 trillion national debt.
