So I am coming back to writing. There is so much I want to cover: The elections. sex trafficking and sexual violence, foreign policy, “terrorism, veterans issues, society and matters of war and peace. I have had so many issues living in my head and I have to talk about them. Plus, a lot of people want me to get back to writing.
See a lot of ignorance as well that I have to call out. We have the least qualified presidential candidate to ever run for president tying in the polls with arguably the most qualified candidate to have ever run. Sex trafficking and violence hasn’t gone anywhere and Black Lives Matter is talking about serious issues that need to be discussed. You all know how much I love talk about war and peace as well as foreign policy and there is so much to cover there. I also need to talk about the great American freak out that is called terrorism: Be afraid of the boogie man boys and girls.
So yeah, I am back here. I hope to write here at least once a day though would like to write more than that. I am also getting back to my other blogs My Journey into Film and Schroyboy so I have a lot of writing ahead. I want writing to be apart of my everyday life. I want to be known for my writings and the only way to do that is to write and write well. I know a lot of people want me to start again and I know this is what I am suppose to be doing.
So with everything that is going on in the world and here in America, I think it is time that I start writing on here in Notes from Outpost 187. This is a blog about politics, foreign policy and social issue blog, and there is much to write about. For those who know me know I have opinions and thoughts on a wide range of topics. I try my best to be thoughtful and take a Socratic approach to things. I also have a great interest in our world, and I want to share them with you all. I am merely trying to add to the discussion and contribute to our democracy.
I also would love to hear your opinions and thoughts. Please try to thoughtful and polite, but if you can’t be, I forgive you.
So I saw on the Facebook a post from a guy that I had served with a MEME that said Official ISIS Hunting License, and thought to myself “ok, go then.” He served with me in the 82nd Airborne Division and has a Ranger Tab. I have many friends who I served with that are constantly posting anti-ISIS post, and my attitude is simple: Put up or shut up. Get your ass over there, link up the Kurds and fight. And I am being serious when I say that.
Seriously, these guys are really good fighters. Some with 2 combat tours under their belt, including a combat jump. The Kurds would benefit greatly with the caliber of fighters these guys are The Kurds need the help, knowledge and leadership that these guys posses.
And this goes to all ex-paratroopers, rangers, and special operators. Get in shape go over and fight ISIS. You are the best trained soldiers in the world and the Kurds need your help. And I say the Kurds because they are pro United States and they have their shit together.
And as far as I go, I am cripple, I broke my back on a jump in 94, yet I stated to get back into combat shape. If I feel I can do the do, I will go as well.
King Abdullah II kicking paratroopers out of a bird.
I have been for a very long time been the biggest fan of King Abdullah II, He is extremely intelligent, thoughtful and a true friend to America in the Middle East. And here he is being a bad ass.
