It occurred to me that I have been hearing and seeing some things from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that seem unconnected, but may not be.
I see a lot of soldiers smoking cigarettes in pictures and on the news; I don’t know why that is, maybe because I haven’t had a cigarette in a while, but it seems that there is a higher percentage than in non-combat life. Maybe there is just more stress, and they use nicotine to cope.
I also have read a lot of articles and heard news stories, and seen documentaries where they discuss the fact that there is a higher percentage of Christianity in the Military.
Could it be that there is a vast conspiracy of the Military Industrial Complex that involves the Tobacco companies and Churches? What a perfect way to increase your customer base; just convince the Government to start a war to combat the pressure you’re receiving in civilian life.
I predict my friend Dwayne will think this is the first intelligent post I’ve written in some time. Not.
