"These guys are such heroes, the Special Ops, the military guys, someone who day in and day out, risk their lives to preserve democracy, to preserve our way of life. You have to respect that."
"You can agree or disagree with politics all you want (hold that thought) but at the end of the day, when someone is willing to put his life on the line, to protect your freedom, you must commend, respect and honor them.
These people keep our country safe, they really do (hold that thought)."
The late, iconic actor, John Wayne is quoted as saying, "get off your butt and join the marines." Wayne never saw one day of military duty, except in Hollywood, in the Cinema, on the big screen. Therefore, he wouldn't necessarily be concerned about the little Vietnamese girl who lost limbs along with her eyesight because she stepped on a hidden land mine, lying dormant for the past 20 years.
His statement is now a reality, is it not? We are currently living in that "endless reign of meaningless chaos," are we not? Those who support war and religion (any religion) you are being pimped by Priest and Politicians alike.
All the rah-rah, patriotic commercials, speeches, and endorsements by celebrities are simply ways to keep you motivated; to continue the global duplicity and perpetually ravage and abuse the inhabitants of our planet.
Let's say you disagree with the political structure of America. If you do, then you must disagree with war. As far as making our country safe, that's pure, unadulterated poppycock. America is the instigator of most wars because we're in it for profit and profit alone. Those who are behind the war machine does not care about human casualties.
We must keep climbing until we reach higher ground, and war is no way to get there.
No matter how you slice it, how you dress it up, how you patronize and glorify it, WAR IS WRONG!
