Perhaps Americans take what they have for granted and forget that there are other countries with problems. Why does America care about what is happening in other countries like Columbia, when they have their own problems with drugs?

Now war has many upsides with money America can win the war and be reimbursed if they succeeded in against the drug lords and drugs all together.

The Positives of war for America and job gain is that people who do not have any jobs can get one either fighting in the war or helping the troops at base camp with cooking and cleaning.

But then the wind came about, and settled in the west for many days, so as we could make little or no way, and were sometimes in purpose to turn back. But then again there arose strong and great winds from the south, with a point east; which carried us up, for all that we could do, toward the north: by which time our victual
