One could justify the first American Revolution for freedom had America remained free, but she did not, so all the killing and dying was in vain.
The War of 1812 was in fact instigated by USA so they could try to take Canada from Britain as well as what they already took from the British who took it from the Indians.
All the Indian wars were to finish stealing the Indian’s lands.
The so called “Civil war”, which was an invasion of a foreign power by USA/DC, was a war crime from word go on the yankee side, with Southerners defending.
Only the Southerners had the right to wage war here, in defense.
There has not been a USA/American war after that which can be justified truthful, each one being able to be proved America was set up by politicians to drag the American people into one after another war which were unjustified and detrimental to America, to any remaining freedoms not already stolen by DC.
Time for America to beat their swords into plowshares, get back to farming.
Stop trying to fertilize the soil of the earth with human blood!
The Ole Dog!
October 03, 2020 “Information Clearing House” – The vast majority of people who experience war directly, first-hand, rather than through Hollywood movies or politicians’ speeches, are the people who live where wars are waged. In wars involving distant wealthy nations on one-side, some 95% of those killed or injured or traumatized, and 100% of those bombed out of their homes are people against whom war is waged, most of them civilians and the rest of them people doing exactly what any Hollywood movie or politician would tell them — have told them — to do: fight back.
But there remains that other group, the invaders from a distant wealthy land. They’re much smaller in number but their numbers are still large, and — just like the people they attack — their suffering is long-lasting. More of them die from suicide after a war is supposedly over than die during it. The diseases and mental disturbances they bring home impact them and those around them and others not yet born. They’re either mocked as losers or used as props to sell more wars — that’s called having choices in the World’s Greatest Democracy. Pick the Party that mocks veterans while creating more of them or the Party that glorifies them while creating more of them. Without having those two choices on Holy Election Day, why, you’d deserve to be bombed like all the undemocratic people the wars are waged against.
What do veterans think of war? Nancy Hill asked dozens of them and has published their answers and photographs of them. She has included U.S. veterans from World War II through current wars. She has included multiple perspectives. While many of those in her book, War: Voices of Veterans, are members of the terrific antiwar group Veterans For Peace, and the sample is certainly not representative of U.S. veterans as a whole, there are people featured here who denounce, and others who spout, war propaganda.
“War is for the corporate elite for their exploitation of other countries.” –Harvey L Thorstad.
“A soldier protects other rights and even if you disagree with what the government does, you must protect your freedom.” –Judith Lynne Johnston.
Presumably even if you disagree that a war protects freedom, you still must wage that war to protect freedom.
There’s a range also from eloquence to incoherence, from poetry to illiteracy. But collectively, the statements of these veterans begin to paint a picture that is not to be found on corporate television or in a video game designed by the U.S. Army.
“You do not get shot and lay down and count to fifty and get back in the game when you get up.” –Thomas Brown
“[O]ne of my buddies is in a hospital in Raleigh. He killed a 12-year old girl who came into camp strapped with dynamite. She was a suicide bomber. We all would have been killed. He was the only one with a heart to shoot her. It messed him up in the head and he’s in a mental hospital.” –Charles Battle
Why didn’t he just crack a joke after killing the girl like they would have done in a movie? Was he weak and delicate, not up to the standards of Donald Trump who can barely get through a negative comment by a TV personality without exhibiting PTSD symptoms? No, he was normal. War is not.
“A normal person does not want to kill and
“will avoid it at all costs.
“The military won’t allow you to remain normal.” –Larry Kerschner
