If we want to commit ourselves to helping other countries, I think we can make a better impact by sending books instead of bombs, sending teachers instead of soldiers, sending tablets instead of bullets. Most of the problems in the world arise from a lack of education or a lack of broad education. In the Middle-East, for example, the Daesh and other groups like it are making way and gaining recruits from people who are ignorant. Muslims who are well-informed, who know how to think for themselves, who know what is the total picture of Islam, would never join Daesh or other groups like it.
So how about that? Let's bring our soldiers home and send teachers in their place. Maybe, if necessary, send back the same men, since they have experience in those regions, but send them in the capacity of teachers instead, arm them with books instead, equip them with tablets instead. How about that?
