I remember a movie with Tom Hanks where he tells a female baseball player; "There is no crying in baseball!". Well, there are no NATO troops, helicopters, ships, fighters, NOTHING! Just like there are no United Nations Troops, helicopters ships, fighters, bombs, or peace keepers! I am getting plenty aggravated with the news media and their stories about these fictitious fighting forces. Those troops and equipment come from allied countries, mostly the United States. They joined their respective military forces to fight for and represent their countries. There is NO world government, regardless of what the liberal media wants to portray to you. In our enlistment oath, there is no loyality sworn to NATO, the United Nations, or any other country. We solemnly swear to "support and defend, the Constitution of the United States". Our fighting forces may be under the command or on loan to one of these ficticious "World Forces", an action that I believe is against the Constitution, but they are AMERICANS! By representing them as NATO of United Nations troops, we hide their deaths in obscurity. Furthermore, we hide the cost of those excursions in the same foggy obscurity.
I want the news media to report on the actions of our troops and our allies, by nation and by name. To do less is deceit at the least and collusion to deceive.
