I believe my statement and you are correct that our military has been used for political gains, oil, money, power struggles.

Political diplomacy has been going on all over the world in one form or another since the age of man. Tribe battles, countries battles, resource battles.

I don't want to wonder off the original post though as I feel strongly about it and troubled in how guns are used to senselessly take lives and then blame our right to own "specific" guns.
