Let returning soldiers run air security

  • Follow Letters

I have been suggesting to my friends for several years now that we bring our troops home. I was met with a resounding, "There will be no jobs. The economy will be worse if we do."

I know war is an economy booster, and ending one ends jobs, but I say we bring our men and women home and put them to work securing our airports and borders. It is honorable work, and who is better trained to be on the alert for "real" terrorists?

We can rid our airports of the incompetents who work there now, and America won't be afraid to fly anymore; plus, we may be treated with more respect when we travel. This may even boost the airline economy.

I would feel a lot better if our returning soldiers had these jobs.

I agree. But where will the lard butt, most, TSA workers in ATL get another job?

"I know war is an economy

"I know war is an economy booster." I guess if you ignore all reasoning of economics... Google Frederic Bastiat's "Broken Window Parable."
