Neither party is for America, and we are going to pay for it

Regarding “Spirit of war keeps growing, at what cost? When will it end?” by David Webb (Nov. 1 Times-News): Unfortunately, we have powerful warmongers in Washington who desire to totally control the world.

The main force is a desire for war by our U.S. Senator who spent seven years as a prisoner in Vietnam. His entire stay in Washington is devoted to pushing for bombing, or invading any country who disagrees with us.

This is at a cost of our wealth, lives, and the wounded, along with a depletion of our resources. Instead, we could be helping ourselves, or other countries such as Haiti.

But no, he, and others, want to govern any country who disagrees with us. It is not hard to see why we are attacked by terrorists! We instigate these attacks by various ways of invasion.

I too am a vet of Korea and I agree with you, David. Most of our politicians in Washington are only for power or greed, with nearly no care for America.

Neither party is for America. We will pay. America should be ashamed for the direction it has taken over the last 20 years.

There is not enough care in America to vote them out. We are sinking fast, morally and every other way.

If only we turn back to God, we may have a chance, but most people are obsessed with electronic activity, not life.
