The Path We Should Take

The world today is in turmoil, from the Middle East to the Ukraine all you see in the news are the atrocities--bombings, beheadings and the paths to wars. For America, we are going to be engaged in another war or two, whether, under Obama or the next President, it's inevitable. It reminds me of the 1960's when we were in another war--Vietnam, which was called a police action, while today it's a role of military advisors. Whatever you want to call it both our foreign actions of today and Vietnam run in a lot of similar parallels, even though the world as changed since the 1960's it seems that our inability to stay out of countries affairs as not been learned from our past mistakes. Unfortunately, we are entrenched, have sacrificed the blood of our brave men and women, and are now compelled to wage war in the Middle East and possibly the Ukraine if for nothing else, our own survival.


In seeing the news of today, I can't get the song  Woodstock by Crosby, Stills Nash  & Young out of my head. A song of  protest and a song of peace that even though meant for Vietnam could easily be used today.
When you listen to this song and read its lyrics, pay attention to it's meaning. It's the path we should taking.
