Those who criticize don't know what it means to fight, what it means to serve, what it means to protect. To the eyes of a civilian, this is just some war over resources. In reality, it's far from the truth. Men and women alike who fight abroad see the evils that our foe has committed upon those who live in the Middle East, now the home to dozens of 'hot spots'. Children are being slaughtered and forced to fight for a cause that, to them, is just, but, in truth, is not. Justice needs to be brought to a land where there is no such thing as peace, no such thing as love, no such thing as unity.
If only people actually knew what they fight for, what we fight for, then they would understand. Hundreds of thousands of people died since 9/11, American, Middle Eastern, European, etc. Though the fighting still continues, even to this day, our job is not done. Peace must be restored to the Middle East in order to restore peace in the world. But, until that day comes, peace will be fought for.
funny you're denying it being a war about resources. i'm german and our former president, horst köhler, actually admitted that germany has economic interests in afghanistan. that led to him stepping back from his presidential position.
let's also talk about the opium poppies that are so beautifully depicted in this picture and just show the contradicting motives of this war.
shall we continue and move forward in time? have you guys found the weapons of mass destruction in iraq that were one of the initial reasons to start a war against iraq?
so, let's talk about freedom and justice one more time and who you think you are to define what justice actually means and what right you have to invade foreign countries for reasons that you made up in the first place?
