Mecklenburg County Campaign for Liberty May Meeting
Rep. Killian is a Republican representing District 105 (South Charlotte) in the NC General Assembly. However, Rep. Killian is also Lieutenant Colonel Killian in the U.S. Army Reserve, and just returned from a 7-month deployment to Iraq as Chief of Operations of the engineering forces stationed at Camp Victory, near Baghdad. Ric saw a lot while in Iraq, and had this to say when recently interviewed about his experiences by the Charlotte Observer:
“I don’t think it’s our role to be nation-building. The military is there to fight and win wars and we’ve gone beyond that now,” Killian said. “It’s a touchy subject. It’s hard to put into sound bites, but I’ve seen it firsthand now. (Iraq) is better off. But it’s time for U.S. forces to come home. Is it a better place because of what we have done? Yes. Should we have done it? That’s a question I can’t answer.”
Please join us to hear what Ric has to say, and bring whatever questions you may have. As you know, one of the Campaign for Liberty’s most ardently-held positions is advocating a non-nterventionist foreign policy. Here’s your chance to speak to both a soldier and a legislator, hear about his experiences, and be heard yourself.
