Regardless of the validity of any engagement, we must confront the consequences of war. I’m including a link to a recently leaked video concerning American military combat. I am not advocating for the label of the video as murder. I just believe this should be seen. We must confront the reality of our decisions to go to war. The consequences for civilians and for our troops is life long. We must give them our best attention and concern. This is our engagement. When our nation goes to war, we all go to war. These are our conflicts and we must look at all of the complications.
