Love is the greatest refreshment in life
~ Pablo Picasso (October 25, 1881 - April 08, 1973)
What happened unfortunately for John is that the United States made an abrupt change after the 9/11 attacks. We switched sides. John was on the ground there when that happened. He certainly didn't go to Afghanistan to do anything against America. He never fought against America. He never fired a gun at an American. He was simply rescued.
