Betrayal

The president’s decision to pull all American military forces out of Syria may be the first part of a plan to bring our troops back in the future in an attempt to clean up the mess he has created. This will surely be at a cost of lives and treasure one cannot imagine at this point in time. We betrayed the then south vietnamese people at the end of that useless war. I remember watching people hanging on the landing skids of the last helicopters leaving the Saigon embassy as the NVA soldiers claimed final victory over the American “invaders.”

America did the right thing by allowing thousands of allies and their families to immigrate to this country to at least make up for that act of betrayal many years ago. The current administration has no plan to do anything similar to help the Kurds especially after signing the anti-muslim ban. America is giving up its leadership role in the middle east for reasons only known to the president and his inner circle. Tho only other country we can count on in that unstable part of the world is Israel and they should be concerned when we are sending more troops to defend Saudi Arabia in case of a future military conflict in that part of the world.

The story of possible impeachment of our president and to kick him out of office opens the door for Mike Pence to be our next president. The future of our country is on the line especially on the world stage. We have to do better than this for those who will follow us in the future.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
