    That’s in the spirit of memorial day to remember Chris Kyle who served his country in unpopular wars. Being a sniper is dangerous infiltrate enemy lines in war time protecting America’s overseas interest and given little thanks for it. In age of cruise missiles and drones the few who serve their nation’s interest should be thanked. True Iran North Korea or even China and Russia will ever invade the United States unless it is a unoccupied island so the American people don’t know about it. But terrorist are a threat selling their ideas over our free media and if killing them overseas saves lives without threatening our free media it is worth it.
