More Troops!

I’ve spent my life hearing the call!
by Charlie Leck

It seems I’ve spent my life hearing one military honcho or another calling for more troops – more troops for the war in Korea, more troops in Vietnam, more troops in Iraq and, now, more troops in Afghanistan.

Does anyone else ever wonder? I mean, isn’t this somewhat, somehow, some way just a little crazy? What kind of nation are we anyway?

I haven’t any answers. Who does? I just shake my head and think about how exhausting it all is. It just isn’t fun being the mightiest nation on earth. Or even pretending we are! It would be better, wouldn't it, to just be little Luxembourg?

Can’t we just give peace a chance! Damn!
