So I finally broke down and created a blog on my site.
I am excited to be on the Leslie Marshall Show this evening at 7:20 pm EST. I will be discussing the plummeting disapproval rating of the war in Afghanistan and how our troops should be taken care of once they have returned home–along with all those that have already returned home. Thankfully, unlike the appalling way Vietnam Veterans were treated by fellow citizens when they returned home, today the vast majority of Americans are able to differentiate their views of the war from those brave men and women who fight it.
I fully understand and supported the reason why we went into Afghanistan. But I do not remember nation building being one of the reasons. It is honorable to want to help other nations, but not at the cost of American lives. In my book, American Horse, I write about the Korean War and Vietnam, wars that all Americans should understand because as the adage goes: “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
Long Live America!
