The Domestic Costs of the Foreign War
The loss of the National Guard to Iraq and Afghanistan as part of Bush's illegal warmongering is about to start taking a serious toll here.
First, reference this article about eyeing the Guard for use during Fire Season:
National Guard Eyed in Fire Season
And now, the news:
Wildfires raging in the west
...the wildfires are raging in the west, and the fire crews are shorthanded.
Do they have any National Guard to help with it...? And, if a sufficient disaster strikes because they don't, then where does that leave us as a nation?
This could get very very ugly, very very fast.
Anybody here affected by the fires...?
