Is freedom worth dying for?

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.

 

THE END

About JCscuba

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    Is freedom worth dying for? Yes and no. As long as a government is more powerful than the people they represent, no, we are not free and that is worth dying for. If one is free to roam his/her country at will and voice his/her opinion as the countries of the western world, yes, we are free and keeping or gaining that freedom in one’s own country is worth dying for. Trying to force our view of freedoms and rights to other countries that don’t share our values is not worth dying for.

    As a military person one is indoctrinated to believe ours is the proper and only reasonable way of life, and maybe it is. But as a career military person we learn that our way of life cannot be forced onto those who would off-handedly reject it. Is it worth dying for that cause. No, it is not. We must not use our military to fight others’ wars. We might consider helping our western world allies who share our views of freedom, but with them not for them.

    But I do believe we should have the best equipped, highest technology badass military in the world, and speak softly. However, if we or our close allies are threatened on our own shores then end it with the first strike. No talks. No diplomacy. Just end it. Then there will be no more encroachment.

    Have a nice day.

    1. War destroys, through unsought social transformations, ALL nations which indulge in it.
    2., Never make war on an angry whim. And NEVER make war for profit.
    3. Fight to win, but remember that you’ll have to (according to your conscience) deal with the vanquished afterwards.

    I will always support the American military. They are heroes and their service to this nation is why we have our precious freedom. I have never fully understood the main objective behind our country’s long-standing involvement in central Asia. However, these are some of my own speculations: I think our presence there has far less to do with the much media-hyped, fictional “War On Terror” and far more to do with the vast fields of opium poppies grown there. Afghanistan is said to be the number one exporter of black market opium, yet, I have to wonder just how many of the giant international pharmaceutical companies which manufacture opiate drugs have legitimate stakes in this high-yielding Afghan cash crop? Furthermore, how many disingenuous American politicians are heavily invested in these drug companies? Is the “War In Afghanistan” merely a cover for the fighting between different factions over who controls the dope? Is this the real reason why our troops have been sent there, only to end up seriously wounded, or killed, sacrificed on the altar of human selfishness and greed? Does this further explain why Russia has never completely lost interest in meddling in Afghanistan?
    Jim, I know you dislike RT News, but, this documentary about the opium drug trade in Afghanistan seems to confirm at least some of my suspicions about what is really going there..

      I wasn’t talking at all about the military Pamela, I was speaking directly to the Military Industrial Complex that for primarily financial reason sends then off to war. You might find the You Tube interesting.

      “Furthermore, how many disingenuous American politicians are heavily invested in these drug companies? Is the “War In Afghanistan” merely a cover for the fighting between different factions over who controls the dope?” exactly my point, our men and women die for the profit of others.
      I like Reagan’s approach, Peace through Strength.
