The price we pay

I am a woman who enjoys peace. I do not think war is the answer to all of our issues. This morning I am open to the possiblity of leveling Afghanistan and setting up a Walmart every 30 miles. I would also throw in a McDonald's. If we are there to do a job that is necessary to our national security then we need to do the job and stop playing. It is time to setup shop in Afghanistan.

Either we allow our children to do the job they were sent to do without restraint, it is war, or we bring them home now.

Also for those quick to say how much of a blow the deaths were, you do not know our might. I am tempted to take a trip with my coffee mug to visit the Taliban. I think they need help with waking up.

Just my angry thoughts this mornng. I may calm down some after coffee but I doubt it. These are our children not cannon fodder.

I am a lover of Fantasy and Science Fiction since childhood. What I have noted over the years is a common theme, humans(White people) have changed the environment to the point of either some horrifying human mutation or some climate apocalypse.  I often wonder why in these writings we don't see an evolution that leads to world peace.  Start Trek is one of the few that shows the possibility for humans after we  learn to work for peace not war.  However,  even Star Trek fails to accur…
