Bush Says We Must Honor War Dead.
Like He Did Here? Watch the video of this clown.
Apparently war is a joke to this guy. It kills me how Americans believe that this guy is some great Military hero and leader when he never served in war. Yet he carries himself as such a man. He's a phony, and has been from day one. Americans who fall for this guys bull..... are so stupid (and there are still many Americans out there who fall for the act). Bush, along with his entire crew, used social priviledge to avoid war. None of these imposters ever bled in battle for this country. Yet they are quick to joke about, and belittle those Americans who have. Remember what they did to Max Cleland, and John Kerry? Remember how they belittle so many other politicians who served in battle?
Bush is the last person I want to see or hear about on Memorial Day.
This country has never "honored" its war dead in the past half century. You don't honor these men and women by starting wars that the country doesn't need. It reduces their worth, by turning them into expendable objects. It cheapens them. They should only be asked to sacrifice for battles that the country DOES need to fight.
How many U.S. wars/conflicts since WWII have really been in the best interest of the U.S. and its people? How many presented urgent & direct threats to the nation that HAD to be met with military force? Not very many- I would say less than 10% of roughly a couple dozen conflicts in the last 50 years. The vast majority of these conflicts have not been worth the lives that were lost or worth the risks that the country took by taking such actions (because there is usually the risk of these conflicts triggering larger wars and larger problems). Most of these conflicts have been ego conflicts....conflicts that the U.S. didn't need, but that allowed the U.S. to flex its military muscle.
Right wing loonies will immediately say to that- Well Isn't the war on terror needed? I say, yes. We must fight Terrorism. But you can't defeat terrorism with Armies.... not traditional conventional armies in the way that Americans envision.
When will Americans learn?
