I met a wonderful gentleman this morning while at a place I can't disclose. After 2 hours of a wonderful conversation, from his family problems and good things to my immigration case, I asked what's your background, what did you do for a living? He is retired, 80+ years old, still in good shape. He told me: I an ex "Secret service" guy.
As you can imagine, we talked about Chile, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador and the US intervention there. Plenty of topics I knew, and he assured me that whatever I knew was true. He was there in the planning room, or met people in charge.
Then, we were exchanging ideas and we concurred that from Vietnam and on, except Korea, this country has made so many mistakes that he got so disappointed, he ended up quitting the service to become an entrepreneur. He feels the distraction, from Vietnam to Iran and then Iraq on, has derailed the leadership this country had in the world by being too bossy. When I asked him about this administration, he said that he hasn't seen anything so absurd ever. Patriotism he said, was thrown through the window. Russia our friend? Yeah right! he said.
But he has confidence the American people will wake up from this ignorant credence that one guy can change the problems. Thinking before voting, and assuming responsibility with your vote, and making the elected guy responsible for his mistakes need to comeback to the table.
On my way to RWC to eat some tacos. See ya!
