I hate WAR OR ANY ACT OF WAR. And I hate everything that it stands for. For it is not fought in the battle for human rights, or for keeping the peace. In fact the act of WAR in and of itself is an absolute "opposite". War for Peace? ?
Wars are fought for the sole purpose of making the economy move by convincing the citizens that the other country must succumb to (our) another’s beliefs. This is not a reason to go to WAR. However, COMMERCE IS a reason to go to war. To promote liquidity. To move the assets. To sell the "goods". But first, the idea of a WAR has to be sold to it’s people. So as to make it seem that the WAR is for a sensible reason. And they are good at what they rant!
Excerpt from a speech delivered in 1933 Gen Butler War Is A Racket by General Smedley Butler, USMC
General Butler: "War is just a racket. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket"
This man, "General" , had the balls to tell the truth. Why doesn’t anyone else seem to get it?
I dearly love, respect, pray for and support our military, and consistently speak against the war.
Our young sons, daughters, grandchildren should not have to give their lives for a military intrusion of another country under false pretenses. They belong at home, in school, with their children, wives, and families. They should be home for Christmas and Birthdays. Their families should not have to go to bed each night fearing the worst for their husbands and/or children in battle.
If we were attacked on our on soil and had to fight – that would be a righteous fight. Or if we must take up arms against a rogue government – that would be a righteous fight. Anything else is not holy and in fact is an evil cause.
Of course this is just my opinion – and who am I?
