In Politics Daily tonight we learn in an article entitled U.S. Soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan Make History With Length of Service that we have just made history. These young people have been in combat longer and more often than any other troops in American history.
We have not seen the full price of this folly yet. The price will be staggering in sociopathic behavior, broken families, mental illnesses of all types and disability payments. If anything will destroy young Americans’ desire to serve their country in uniform in the future, it will be the 1% of the population we have just disemboweled either mentally or physically. Standby for heavy rolls because high seas are coming our way.
