The Big Lie

In what is being called “The Big Lie,” the Pentagon has been holding ‘phony’ ceremonies for returning remains of MIAs, using planes that can’t fly. “The ceremonies have been attended by veterans and families of MIAs, led to believe that they were witnessing the return of Americans killed in World War II, Vietnam and Korea.”

The real tragedy, however, is that the mission of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) “is to return and identify the 83,000 missing service men and women from World War II, Korea and Vietnam. The agency is identifying the dead at a rate of fewer than 80 per year, at a cost of more than $1 million per identification. Bodies now wait in the JPAC lab an average of 11 years before being identified, according to an internal report released this year.”

Beg, plead, and cry to keep your loved ones out of the military. Fifty years after they disappear from a place they should never have been, pieces of their bodies in some lab may still be unidentified. And that is if they even find any body pieces. Oh, but the risk is worth it since my son or daughter can’t find a job and will get money to go to college while they defend my freedom–to be dumb enough to make such a statement.
