weekend, three more American soldiers lost their lives to IED roadside bombs in
Afghanistan while two lost their lives to Afghanistan troops turning the
weapons that we provided them—and shot our own young men. Military people call those deaths: “insider
attacks.” (Source: Associated Press
report) The Afghanistans we gave
billions of dollars and sent our finest men to “free” them—continue killing our
military personnel at the drop of a hat.
kids serving our country in that 11 year war lived in constant danger of dying
every day in that backward, goat herder and Islamic-dominated crazy country. Understand this: illiteracy runs at 80+
percent in Afghanistan. That country
suffers dozens of war lords competing for dominance for the last 1,400 years of
Islamic mayhem. NBC’s Brian Williams
reported last week that our CIA funneled suitcases full of millions of U.S.
taxpayer dollars to Afghanistan President Karzai to pay off tribal leaders—so
they would support our troops.
Otherwise, those warlords just as soon kill our boys.
What in the
living hell did Congress, George W. Bush and now Barack Obama get us into? What have we accomplished in Iraq and
Afghanistan? Why didn’t we leave a week
after bin Laden saw the raw end of an M-14 in via Seal Team Six? What in the name of common sense are we doing
to ourselves and our young men serving in uniform?
the final analysis, we killed a lot of people and their kids, and they killed a
lot of our kids. Result: a lot of death,
but we accomplished nothing in the way of national security as proven by our
Islamic bomber immigrants at the Boston Marathon two weeks ago.
kids died in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan for the Military Industrial Complex
run by massive munitions corporations, Halliburton and anyone else who benefits
from making war products.
All of it
based on a lie! Saddam Hussein did not
own one, single weapon of mass destruction that he could turn onto the people
of the United States. Not one! George Bush lied, then lied some more, and
Obama continued and continues the lie in Afghanistan. Our complicit Congress and the past two
presidents should be brought up on criminal charges for killing so many people
without any warrant whatsoever.
years in Iraq and 4,200 deaths along with tens of thousands of our finest kids
being blown up or emotionally blown to pieces with Post Traumatic Stress
Syndrome. Several thousand of our kids already
committed suicide from their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Experts expect no less than 150,000 to 200,000
former U.S. combat troops will commit suicide in the years ahead from their
horrific experiences in the Middle East.
As I documented in an earlier column two years ago, 200,000 to 225,000
Vietnam combat troops who walked out of Vietnam in one piece—later killed
themselves. Endless thousands more dove
into drugs, alcohol, divorces and homelessness.
Thousands of kids lost their fathers to war’s long term insanity and
one of our “kids” that died in Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan—died
for nothing but money by mega-corporations.
I am astounded how the American Military Industrial Complex can
manipulate the American people like sheep to follow their propaganda for 10
friggin’ long years of lying to us. Back
when I attended college during Vietnam, we marched in the streets to “Stop the
war…hell no, we won’t go….” Why? We
didn’t want to get killed for no reason whatsoever.
Why do those
five kids’ deaths in Afghanistan this week distress me? My father served in the US Marine Corps and
died while in service to our country. His death wrecked our family. From my infant brother John who never saw his
father to my own emotional turmoil for years if not decades. My brother Rex suffered horrific emotional
trauma and my sister Linda became a zombie for five years. My mother kept us together with her heroic
strength. But none of our lives
recovered and our dad’s death changed our destinies.
reaches out to those five kids’ families who just received the news that their
citizen-soldiers died over the weekend.
They’re all crying right now. They weep in shock, pain and
bewilderment. They will suffer for
years and decades to come. If those troops enjoyed wives and families, their
offspring will forever be changed without dad.
our all volunteer Army ingests young men, turns them into killers and spits
them out emotionally wrecked or returns them back home in caskets.
War Is a Racket
U.S. Major General Smedley Butler said, “WAR is a racket. It always has
been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most
vicious. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and
the losses in lives.
“A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it
seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group
knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the
expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes. In the WWI,
a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new
millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World
War. How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them
dug a trench? How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a
rat-infested dug-out? How many of them spent sleepless, frightened nights,
ducking shells and shrapnel and machine gun bullets? How many of them parried a
bayonet thrust of an enemy? How many of them were wounded or killed in battle?”
You can bet that draft dodging Dick Cheney never shouldered a rifle, but he
made millions with Halliburton. George
W. Bush smoked weed and snorted cocaine while in the safety of the Texas
National Guard, but 58,300 less fortunate American kids got blown away. Today, Bush’s worth exceeds multiple millions
while our country stands trillions in debt from the wars he and Cheney started
Sickening: the American people sit on their fat rear ends without so much as
a whimper. Just serve up their kids and
watch the death continue.
