Afraid conjures up some negatives based on schoolyard bullying. Let use concerned.
Poland is concerned that Gearmany may seize the Polish corridor
South Korea is concerned about a possible North Korean attack.
Nato is concerned over the 50,000 Warsaw Pact tanks in Europe
Warfare moves faster now. We took a long time getting ready for War in 1941 and men died because of it.
Today we could lose more than soldiers lives if we are not ready.
I accept that we may need to have an adult conversation about our level of military spending in light of our fiscal concerns.
I am just worried that some peple look at the world and do not see "Concerns"!
