To The Daily Sun,
I would like to inform Mr. Schwotzer that his assertion of my math was incorrect was true. I feel that his opinion that the increase in the national debt of two wars that were in full force when Pres. Obama took office was also incorrect. While I agree that it make no sense to bicker back and forth, re-read my last letter Mr. Schwotzer and answer, why is a civilian death more important than a military death, both in harms way,war or not?
Yes, I remember Sept. 11, 2001. I also know that 3,000+ died that day. I also know that thousands of American military personnel were killed, many thousands more wounded — some very seriously, with total disability. I read a little on the Beruit bombing in 1983, when 241 military were killed on a peace-keeping mission, no investigation. Pres. Reagan removed the rest four months later. We were not at war in Lebanon. Where was the scandal then, Mr. Schwotzer?
The problem the right wing nuts have is they feel the military are expendable, hardly ever will they be mentioned in a letter in The Sun. Your comment at the end of your letter was cute. I realize that I don't write with big words — cute statements — but I will say you talk the talk but you don't walk the walk.
In reference to Steve Earle's letter today, I will not indulge in any more comments to his letters.
