War: what is it good for?
By Ken Hildebrand
But what does war mean? Well, Webster’s Dictionary defines war as:
1: a state or period of usu. open and declared armed fighting between states or nations 2: the art or science of warfare 3: a state of hostility, conflict or antagonism 4: a struggle between opposing forces or for a particular end
I decided to list some of the wars that we are involved in at this time. I know that I didn’t get them all but here are some of the wars I came up with.
War in Iraq, War in Afghanistan, War on Drugs, War on Terror, War on Violence, Middle East War, War on Women, War on Men, War on Islam, War on Religion, War on Poverty, War on Hunger, War on Obesity, War on Pornography, War of the Sexes, War on Crime, War on Vaginas, War on Guns
Let’s not forget the Tug of War and all of the other Wars that are out there.
Why does everything have to be a war?
I think that war should be defined in the following manner: a period of time where the total destruction of property and the loss of human lives are condoned. A conflict between two parties that can’t get along and these results are the mindless eradication of people that have no idea what is going on.
The current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are not between the American people and the people of those countries. It is between the powers that be for oil and poppies (opium) and whatever else they can get to line their own pockets.
Don’t kid yourself, war is big business and there is a lot of wealth to be obtained on both sides while the troops and the people are stuck in the middle.
Our troops should be honored on this Memorial Day for the sacrifice of life and limb and the mental anguish they will have for the rest of their lives.
They went to war as instructed and did battle for what they were told was a moral and noble cause.
Recently it has been to protect the country from terrorists, before that it was communism and so on and so forth.
Don’t ever forget our troops, some day they will be called upon to defend our country from a real threat and they are all you have. God bless our troops.
Editor’s note: While I am often very critical of the military, I am critical of what the military does but not each and every soldier. In fact, many soldiers go into the military for all the right reasons, only later finding out that they are being used as tools by war profiteers. Indeed, one day our military could turn around and use the powers they have been given for pure good but unfortunately right now they are being directed by wholly corrupt individuals who treat soldiers as cannon fodder. Keep in mind what Henry Kissinger said about the troops. Kissinger referred to military men as “dumb, stupid animals to be used” as pawns for foreign policy. This is how so many of the so-called elites actually view the people who put their lives at risk for causes that they truly believe are worth dying for.
