The Long Road from being a Hawk to a Dove.
We’ve had that mantra drilled into our head since we were little kids.
First, we must define “Freedom.”
Is it truly the place of the United States to be inserting itself into other countries Civil Wars?
My vote is a resounding no.
Are we really free?
Some chose to serve their country in time of war.
Are they noble and brave or just another piece to the puzzle?
Remember when we frequently hear the Military Industrial Complex?
If that’s why we fight we are supporting the wrong fight.
Of course we and talk a “Pollyanna approach,” and send the world a message that the U.S. has decided to no longer take part.
I suggest we who fight are little more than ponds in their game of chess.
That could well create more instability globally.
I’m calling for a “Kick Ass Military,” like no other.
Tell the world about it, and only use it if challenged to do so.
Should that day ever arrive, it will appear to those who made the horrific decision that the Gates of Hell have opened and have been unleashed directly upon them.
We were warmed by President Eisenhower at his farewell address of the threat of The Military Complex.
Our representatives in Congress played blind deaf and dumb, and why not?
Their only immediate concern was getting reelected and in that light, continue to deceive us.
Yes this sounds like it was written by a member of the Peace and Freedom Party.
I was a member, perhaps with age we gain wisdom.
