Dear Sir,

Human nature is basically evil.

If you think the U.N. Inspectors of human rights violations would be a safe alternative to armed military action, then examine closely the U.N. record in recent years over the world we call earth and get intellectually honest with yourself. The U.N. lacks the backbone to stop one iota of carnage almost everywhere they have been assigned and deployed in the past forty years. I suggest you volunteer for the duty or go back to school.

Like Jack Nicholson said in "A Few Good Men" 'Son , we live in a world with walls. Someone has to stand on the wall. It is me. I volunteered for the duty and am paid a pittance to be here. I put my life on the line every day for you so you can go about your business in your office with your pretty secretary and coffee breaks. You do this under the very umbrella of the protection that I provide and then question the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just go about your business and give me a thank you once in a while or pick up a gun and stand up here with me. Either way I dont give a damn."
