I mind the fact that even ONE American risks his life for people that couldn't care less about us, nor is anyone over there doing anything to harm US!!!

Again, ONE American casualty is too much!!!

It is not our place to have to be the neighborhood watch for people that have no use for US, unless it's to ask for money, or blame the U.S. for whatever their problems are!!!
Who do you think controls NATO and the UN? WE DO!!!! In WWII there was no question as to why are we fighting, there was a madman trying to take over the world! We had NO reason to lose American lives in Korea, Vietnam, Kuwait, Uganda, and now Yugoslavia. In all of these incidents, it was a matter of CIVIL WAR! We went through ours everybody else will go through theirs! We will probably go through another one too. It is a basic cycle of life, when there is more than one person(or animal) in one place, nature is that the stronger will take on the weaker, just to prove that they can.
Don't get me wrong, I was in the Army, and I LOVE THIS COUNTRY. I would give my life for THIS Country in a second, but I would NOT give it for any other, nor should ANY American HAVE to!!!
