It's sad how little help vets get.  Just spoke to a vet, was very saddened to hear what he had to say. Regarding financial help, help for families that lost loved ones etc..

I called you out. You want to call that trolling then so be it but that doesn't change the facts.

What I am tired of is the insensitivity many of you are showing while our brothers and sisters are getting killed.
I'm tired of many here spinning every issue into insensitivity.

Nobody is insensitive and that wasn't the question I asked. The only insensitive person is the one who directly caused this catastrophe and 'bears full responsibility" for only one thing. Finding people to blame.

You think he gives a d@mn about the blood on his hands?

Rabbi Frand had a very interesting take on this tonight and linked it to the final curse in the tochaha.

I have done a quick summary below, but he was much more compelling.

R' Frand said the last curse which the Torah mentions in Devarim 28:68 - that the Jews will be brought back to Egypt in a boat and attempted to be sold for slaves, but no one will buy you. Why is this the worst? Because it shows that you are back to square one - back to where you were before you left Egypt. The futility demonstrates that this is the worst of the curses.

R' Frand said that it was not a political statement - but it is ironic what we are seeing right before 9/11. He recalled where he was on 9/11 when he was trying to write his teshuva derasha and he got a call from his son telling him about the plane that flew into the WTC. And then after President Bush stood on the pile of rubble and said -we are going to get you. (And R' Frand remarked that he was enthused - yes - go get them!) Later, there were pictures of people riding on horseback into battle.

But where are we now? The US sunk $2 Trillion into that war and more than 2,400 servicemen and women were killed. But its 20 years later - what do we have to show for it? Without getting into whether we should stay or go, this is a curse that we are back to where we were on that day. And its truly a horrible shame. He wondered - how can someone who lost a loved one fighting in Afghanistan feel right now? Nothing has been accomplished - this is a curse.
