Off to War

*sigh*  Well my little brother is being deployed to Iraq, Jan. 9 of next year.  I knew this could happen, but i wasn’t worried too deeply.  Now I’m a liitle worried, but not frightened.  Van is in the Air Force and he’s a doctor so the chances of him being in a combat zone are slim to nil…I hope.  I have to admit the more i think on it, the more frightened I actually start to become.  *sigh*  Now i’m starting to wonder if somehow my support of the war brought this about.  But i know i’m being stupid in all of this doubt and fear I’m feeling.  I need to pray about this.  I’ll post some other stuff later on.

Thoughts on the Iraq War.

Well i personally think we kinda screwed this one up.  Although we’re still in Germany aren’t we.  I think we went in for the right reasons but we had the wrong intelligence.  Now we’re stuck there and can’t just up and leave.  I do believe we’re doing the right thing there now by trying to help the country rebuild, we could have just left and then bombed the place back to the stone age whenever a bunch of terrorists took up residency there.  I’m glad we never took that route.  I won’t go into everything i think about this war because some won’t understand and i think it may be redundant on my part.  I want our soldiers to come home, but i want them to come home as winners.  I want our country safe, and i want us safe in the right way.
