Having flown within and been TDY on a routine basis in Korea from 1974-1977 and
1980-1983, we have spent equivalent amount of dollars since the early 1950s and
lost more people's lives there than in Iraq. We have spent a fortune
keeping that part of the world safer for our purposes and national security
after the Korean and WWII. We are a beacon for the world even
though we have done some things wrong in the past. We released plenty of people
from despots but cannot do that without policies and plans in place instead of
shooting at the hip.We have done a lot of things for the benefit of
the world. However, we have people that love power and prestige as puppets at
times. Honesty and Integrity are principles our forefathers and especially
founding fathers wanted for us in memoriam. The electorate is not
doing their part and voting. We have allowed a few to vote for our elected
officials. There is more of a public responsibility that we need to do. We are
satisfied to go to recreational and sports activities and pay for the high
salaries of sports, movie personalities than for our republic.
President Bill Clinton and also Secretary of State Clinton did not have policies
relating to Korea.
This country has actual weapons of mass destruction. They are also aiming at us.
We should have focused here instead of the debt creating unfunded Iraq war.
