Friday Rambling about “Boots on Ground”

I suppose I can support air strikes in Iraq and Syria. We seem to be pretty good with the drones. I worry about collateral damage– lives of innocent women and men and children who will be used by ISIS as human shields.

I hope we stay clear from sending troops (boots on ground). Why would we want to put ground troops back in Iraq? We’ve already tried this out and at what cost?

Our nation has suffered the death of thousands of Americans. We’re not doing the greatest job supporting our veterans many of whom now have a hard time finding jobs, housing, etc.

Why would we want to put troops into Iraq when most of the countries directly impacted by ISIL are not committing troops? And why would we commit troops to Iraq when we can’t seem to protect our own borders?
