While waiting in line at the grocery store there is a conversation between an elderly man and a young woman with 2 kids. She is complaining because her husband is overseas serving our country. She thinks all of our troops across the world should be brought home. The elderly man explains that by doing so, we would be inviting war to our own soil. When asked if she had thought about that, her reply was that she didn't care cause at least her husband would be home. The man turned away, sadly shaking his head.
Do we really want our troops home and have war brought to our own soil? Do people really think it would not happen???

Navy, Marines and Coast Guard on the coast, Army, Marines, National Guard on the ground and Air Force and NG protecting airspace...It would take 1 tough group to infiltrate the sum total of all the best fighters + equipment in the world. Although, I think the young woman was naive in her thinking, I also believe with massive numbers of specially trained troops ready and engaged, it would be difficult for a foreign militia to be successful-

What I do not understand is those who verbalize the horror of having attacks similar to 9-11 on our soil, yet in the next breath express support for said behaviors by America (ns) in other countries around the globe. I know many will defend the "why" of these efforts in the ME particularly, I'm talking about fundamental beliefs. How come citizens in the rest of the world are not allowed to have the same beliefs about their countries? WHY is ok for us to traipse into their country and at times wreck havoc, yet at the same time, many are appalled that such might happen here? Arrogant thinking...and we are not, nor should we be, IMO, the United Nations of the entire world-
