What are some of the conflicts this country has a stake in today? Is anyone in your family involved in one of these conflicts?

What are some of the conflicts this country has a stake in today? Is anyone in your family involved in one of these conflicts? Do you feel we should be involved with these conflicts? Is it possible to support the troops, but not the war? How can we help our troops readjust to civilian life? Should the draft be reinstated? Should this country require that all citizens, male and female, serve in the military for a few years, like some countries do?

Conflicts: energy and transportation. Is anyone involved: EVERYONE! Should we be involved? Absolutely. We need to be more active in developing alternative fuel sources. Is it possible to support troops and not war? Yes. How can we help them readjust? I'm not sure. No to your final two questions.

I know when you asked for a conflict you meant war, but I'm afraid that if something isn't done soon about our gas prices, there will be riots in some parts of this country. I'm almost at the point where I can't afford to drive to work. Thank God for summer!
