Situation of war

Dear George:

I would like you to think about all of the people in the U.S. and their families and I would also like you to think about your own family while you are at it. Then, I would like you to think about the situation of war facing the world. Now, put them into context and think of how that will in turn affect us who are living here in the United States. The reputation we have around the world as a country has deteriorated due to young fighters who are not professional enough to endure the requirements of war; by this I mean young children between 18 and 28 years of age, who are living in paranoia and acting as soldiers in a so called “terrorist” town. Innocent people will walk up to them asking for food and water and in return will receive a bullet marking the end of their life, all because these soldiers are not well prepared and the people in the regions expect our soldiers to help them. So, if and when the people of the world are fed up with these unprofessional actions, such as those witnessed in the Abu Gharib and Falluja, the repercussions will be devastating to us. So, I ask that you consider how your well intended actions may be jeopardizing our people, while pursuing the freedom of our very citizens.

Terrorism is and has always been aimed at an economic repressive state, therefore, considering this, funds for anti-terrorist groups should be limited to the economically wealthy. Thus, not disregarding the needs of the economically challenged, such as the education system and the health care system.

Peace.
