Armies can do other things besides fight wars. A military might might be used for other things that causing harm. How about we use them to clean up the environment? Seriously. That’s what’s going on in China.

Chinese Soldiers "Cleaning Up"

Chinese frontier soldiers are picking up garbage on the Red Sea Beach. The frontier soldiers pick up plastic bags and other garbage to keep the environment clean for visitors. The Chinese Red Sea is located in Panjin City, northeast China’s Liaoning Province. The mouth of the Liaohe River is covered with a read sea-blite plant.

Yeah! I like this. Using soldiers to do a different kind of cleaning up. It gives cause to wonder. What if all the money in the world that is spent on military might for countries was used to clean up and protect our environment.

The US spends some $300-400 billion each year. China spends … Russia spends. Why can’t we do away with military spending and divert it to caring for our planet? Why can’t we all just get along?
