No More Mid East Wars Please

I imagine few will agree with me but I feel compelled to voice my concern.

A few days ago President Trump scolded our Generals about the futility of continuing to maintain our military presence in Syria. I totally agree with that position.

This morning it appears that the President has become enraged about the use of nerve gas over there.

Please Lord don't let our warmongering folks drag this country into another prolonged fight over things that are none of our business.

The countries of the Middle East are tribal nations and they have been killing each other for eons. I doubt we can change that. We have wasted trillions of dollars already, we've lost thousands of lives and we've brought home thousands of permanently damaged young men and women whose chance at a normal life is very seriously diminished.

In the meantime our own country and society has degenerated drastically.

I tend to agree that enough is enough. I still want to see all the arguments for a ramp up in Syria. I haven't researched to see if we are officially at war in Syria at the moment. If we aren't, the people's representatives should be put to a vote before we unleash an enormous amount of military resources. I am nervous when I see liberal left wing media giddy over the possibility of missile mania in Syria. These people didn't hold Obama accountable for his red line over chemical weapons in Syria. They constantly called George Bush a murderer for launching the conflict in Iraq. The WMD's were likely there and moved into neighboring countries yet he was called a war criminal. Hillary Clinton was never held to account for her "AYE" vote to launch us into that conflict. What has changed? All of the unusual suspects are banging war drums. Seems fishy to me. I think that the reality may be starting to sink in that this will not be a few missiles and a celebration. An attack of any sizeable scale will be the prelude to a larger operation. Unfortunately, we do not have any powerful self sufficient allies in the region to manage a major conflict without us. We should do our due diligence on this one.

I don’t understand the lack of input on this blog. I appreciate if some folks would like the situation to unfold a little before entering their input. I read the news but clearly don’t have all the facts. We are in or around a military town and have many ex-military on this medium. I am not the type to avoid the chance to kick some communist dictator behind but I want to know our real objective over there. We are building a major contingency in Jordan. Israel is engaging in a significant operation against an Iranian contingent in the south of Aleppo. There is much more at play here than is being portrayed. I agree with the president that we should never tip our hand. What does this community think? I don’t believe the Russian propaganda. I just want to satisfy America’s interests. Not only for right now but also for the foreseeable future.

I too am disappointed in the response to this blog.

The Coastal Courier blog site has been a convenient forum for folks like us to discuss issues of the time.

Not sure what the future will bring.
