Today I think I managed to piss off and alienate at least a couple hundred Facebook friends that worship the military and by extension the state that commands them and sends them off to war for no lawful purpose. Many people think that by criticizing our military and questioning their missions today, we are disrespecting their loved ones that are serving or attacking the integrity of veterans in their service; nothing can be further from the truth.
Most of the veterans I know, including those that lost everything serving in our military did so with honorable intentions; believing they were serving their country and fighting enemies overseas so that they wouldn't have to face them at home. Such thinking is certainly admirable and the government has used that thinking to swell their ranks whenever they needed forces but it is wrong-headed in my opinion and I'll explain why I believe that.
The Japanese rejected the idea of invading the American mainland because they knew damn well that America was an impenetrable fortress of armed people that would make mincemeat of ANY occupying force. Their attack on Pearl Harbor was like poking a stick at a bee hive and rained death upon millions of their people even without trying to invade our land.
The excuse of sending our men overseas to prevent the "bad guys" from coming here is propaganda, nothing more. It has made it possible for our men and women in the armed forces to rationalize their actions in foreign lands and made the justifications of the oligarchy much more palatable to both the military and the American people... but the truth is, no nation is so foolish to think they could invade America from outside.
Today America is being invaded by multiple foreign forces... with the aid and assistance of the United States Government in contradiction of their sworn duty to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. Foreign armies are being invited and trained to disarm the American people under State Department Publication 7277... We are being destroyed by traitors within and a willing media that has facilitated that destruction through their propaganda and distractions (bread and circuses).
Military personnel that are not trusted to subjugate their families and friends are being deployed overseas to subjugate others, while the forces loyal to the oligarchy are being massed to destroy us at home. If it wasn't threatening America so badly I would have to admire the strategy and execution of their plan... but it will result in the death of millions.
The truth is our military has been used as a mercenary force to advance the geopolitical goals of the oligarchy. It hasn't been used for the legitimate purpose defined in the Constitution for generations. If the military was fighting to defend our liberty, we would be the freest people in the history of man today... are we? Is the Bill of Rights being observed and respected? Is the Constitution being enforced and defended? Our people have been handed a line of shit that uses societal pressure to keep anyone from saying or acting out of the official line.
Stand out from the crowd and demand the truth, especially when the truth challenges you to think. Stand up, arm yourself, and retake control of your communities from those that are clearly seeking to subjugate or destroy you. Remove the threats that have been introduced and reinvigorate in the minds of our enemies what the Japanese knew 80 years ago!
