I had no intention of writing today. A broken arm slows your writing down.Yesterday,
a diarist wrote about not wanting his sons in the military.I could tell he had no clue
about some of what he said about killing.Still,we all have a right to an opinion. I feel the
NEXT war should be declared by Congress.I then would want a draft. Today,a tiny percentage of Americans are involved in Afghanistan.This war would have ended long ago if all our young were involved.Bush and his gang are War criminals sending young
people to die thinking the people behind 9-11 were in Iraq.It was a lie,and our leaders
knew it. We should have killed or taken Osama and crew and come home.
This morning I read a diary about a man who spit in the face of a Doctor to stay out of

I was able to be involved with the health of the poor who lived in villages.I HAVE Parkinson"s from Agent Orange,so I am aware of what that poison did to the people there and to folks like me now.
We should have let North Vietnam take the South over.The poor are probably better off now.I still remember an old lady offering me sex, I thought she was ugly with her black
teeth,anyone in Vietnam knows what I am talking about.The old ugly lady was offering
me her daughter to have sex with,that little girl may have been 9 or 10 years old.How sick.
Many Vietnamese tried to flee there when we left. Many Vietnamese live here because they helped us. Many drowned trying to flee. We never lost a battle there but we lost
the war.Now Vietnam and America are best friends.
If some of your neighbors are being drafted,You go to help them.Our leaders will always pick our wars. Maybe someday we as citizens can find away to stop that.
A man helps his brother in need,I didn't carry a gun,I carried medical supplies.Those
supplies helped some come home.
Spitting in a mans face to keep from getting shot is nothing to be proud of.I would be
