    Yes, but how many more souls will god have to bless. I do have military experience, but no more than your average Viet Nam vet. But I remember well that the VC hid behind bushes an leaves and no technology ferreted him out as long as he stayed behind the green line.
    I see pictures of our front line trenches, and not a leaf no’r a blade of grass, to hide behind. How hard would it be to sprinkle some seed of some fast growing tall grass? How about following up with a row or two of fast growing massive trees. Such as California Redwood trees. They grow 10 to 15 feet per year, and eventually wide enough to drive a car though its trunk.
    Trees that will stop bullets, trees that will grow so tall that they would obstruct sniper view.
    Stop the bleeding, plant cover. I’d be willing to pay for the seed. I’s laughably cheap. But whom do I send it to?
