Hi Don, this is right on the nose. As a fellow Vietnam Veteran, we know what it is like fo fight with your hands tied. The rules of engagement under the current administration as you have pointed out, are a farce. I found it interesting the scenario you used at the beginning of this Post. About 7 or 8 years ago, the NM State Student Council held their State convention at Raton High School. I was a Coach at Raton High as well as a BN CO in the NM State Guard. I approached the administration on this Security issue and they looked at me as if I were from another planet. I could see in my minds eye a scenario similar to the one your referred to, but the impact would have been even more pronounced, as there were Students from almost every community in NM at this Convention. You could imagine the shock to the American psyche, if this scenario had taken place. It would have shown that even small town America can be a target in this war on terror. Like you I feel we are not doing enough, and are hiding our heads in the sand. It is not a matter of if anymore, only when such an attack will take place. Keep up the Great Work! Yours for a better America, COL (Ret.) Gilbert N. San Roman srgloent@raton.com Member International War Veterans' Poetry Archives http://www.iwvpa.net/san_romangn/index.php
