Problems in the MIddle East...

I don't usually post on this particular board but I'm having an annoyed moment and I feel the need to vent among other military wives.

The amount of Facebook posts I am seeing screaming for us to drop bombs and go to war with Libya, Egypt and Yemen is scary.  That seems to be the solution for everything right now "Bomb them!" "War!".  It's like people forget that those service members have families and that not EVERY person over there is responsible for what has happened.  My husband already serves, thanks.  Why don't you hop your sorry self off of Facebook and go do the same instead of talking about how we need to declare war? Thanks, bye...

This happens every time there is a conflict somewhere in the world where Americans are hurt/killed/tortured/held prisoner, etc.  Yet, these same people have been yelling for us to get out of Iraq and Afghanistan for years.  

It is best to keep your mouth shut sometimes.

OMG.. I am seeing the same posts on facebook and my blood pressure is probably high right now.. I live in the US and people are yelling at me and think its US fault or the people of the US why this has happened..

I have no idea what to do or how to respond but I am just not saying anything anymore .. I have deleted political comments and the ones about bombs and all.. I am with you on that one......................

I so wish that all of our military can come home and stop all of this and just leave those countries alone.. Close down all of our embassys and have each and every American come home to our soil...

In God I pray...
