    Whenever we hear someone talk about Pakistan and if we support them, we also seem to add in the idea that "yes we support them *and* they are a nuclear country."

    In my honest opinion our ambassadors to other countries need to tell the people in some medium what their country says about the US and what views have changed or continues in that area. Only then...will we be able to comment on any foreign countries with more then grains of salt.

    Something to consider when our government and our military does something it doesn't have others' ideas or "uses" in check...it has its own...how could it?

    When the military goes somewhere it's the ones that are highest on the food chain to issue the order(s.) With that in mind, there is nothing that is conferred to others or other branches. As we always hear it's always on a "need to know basis."

    Government transparency should always be fought for even for those hard-to-touch issues. A shadow hides everything it covers.

    I continute to fight for government transparency because if our government and military was already transparent then we as a people would be able to much easier ascertain facts from the media as well as make our own descisions...because the facts would need to be laid out.

    On the one hand the military and the people say we are "here for the people" but I beg this question, "which of our actions is here for the people?"

    If someone responds with the war on terror, that's not an individual act it's a continually morphing act with every branch of the military and probably every branch of the government making the ink spot bigger in their own direction.
