This came to me while I was thinking about what to say for Memorial Day.
The term “Blood and Treasure” is in reference to the money of the United States being spent to put our young men and women into harm’s way on foreign shores. The decision to spend this Blood and Treasure should never be made lightly or for frivolous reasons.
Truthfully, no price can be placed on a simple flag-draped coffin.
I’m talking about this because a simple test can be made to see if the cause is just. One simple question to ask, and the answer to it will answer the question, “Should the United States spend its’ Blood and Treasure there?”
The real question is, “If we laid our war dead in the soil of where we are going, would they be honored?”
