The Danger of Engaging in Perpetual War

As I scrolled through my Facebook memories, I discovered the following link, which I originally posted to my own wall in August of 2016, and decidedly re-shared it, along with commentary…

Our Greatest National Security Threat? Perpetual War:
https://www.commondreams.org/views/2016/08/12/our-greatest-national-security-threat-perpetual-war

(William Astore) The United States is now engaged in perpetual war with victory nowhere in sight.  Iraq is chaotic and scarred. So, too, is Libya. Syria barely exists. After 15 years, “progress” in Afghanistan has proven eminently reversible as efforts to rollback recent Taliban gainscontinue to falter. The Islamic State may be fracturing, but its various franchises are finding new and horrifying ways to replicate themselves and lash out. Having spent trillions of dollars on war with such sorry results, it’s a wonder that key figures in the U.S. military or officials in any other part of America’s colossal national security state and the military-industrial complex (“the Complex” for short) haven’t spoken out forcefully and critically about the disasters on their watch.

My Commentary: Not exactly rocket science, and yet, it still remains an ever-elusive concept to most, somehow…

Show Your Dedicated Support for Your Favorite War-Mongering Presidential Candidate by Enlisting in the Military, Now!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared in the comments section of this post, by the page, “Being Libertarian,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"From the polling lines to the front lines. Women are standing up to Russia. Pre-register for the draft today. https://www.sss.gov/Home/Registration. I ❤ H (HillaryClinton.com)"

“From the polling lines to the front lines. Women are standing up to Russia. Pre-register for the draft today. https://www.sss.gov/Home/Registration. I ❤ H (HillaryClinton.com)”

My Commentary: If only this meme wasn’t a joke…*sigh* Then again, it could possibly qualify as prophetic…

Senate Votes to Require Women to Register for the Draft:

But, seriously, though…

You’re with her? Sounds like you have some signing up to do!

What’s that you say? You’re “too old”? Well, actually… not if you’re under 40! The Air Force, the Navy Reserve, the Air National Guard, and Coast Guard Reserve, are ALL still looking for a few good women! And, if you’re between 34-35, you even have up to five more options than these! So, I suggest you get moving, and dutifully prove your commitment to your favorite candidate! You’ll probably beat the lines, if you head out today! Your local recruiting station eagerly awaits your enlistment!

Wait… You’re actually looking to “Make America Great Again,” you say? Sweet! Sounds like you have some signing up to do, too!

That’s right! Both major candidates are pro-war! And, in case you haven’t noticed, America’s endless wars aren’t just going to fight themselves!

() President Barack Obama wants Colin Kaepernick to think about the pain he’s causing military families the next time he takes a knee during the national anthem.

My Commentary: *sigh* Nothing like being lectured by a lizard on the merits of compassion!

Why doesn’t this child-murdering war-pig think about the pain he is causing the human race** with his Crimes against humanity?

**(those of us who actually place value on innocent human life)

Even the military doesn’t seem very pleased with their orders…

Neo-Conned, Neo-Libbed into Fascism

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted artwork being shared by the page, “Vacate the Military

Rayn

"Conservative Paradise: Lots of Police and Military. Secure Borders. Mandatory Flag Worship."

“Conservative Paradise:
Lots of Police and Military. Secure Borders. Mandatory Flag Worship.”

Jonas A.: Uhmmmmm…more like National Socialist Paradize!!!! 🙂

Rayn: A nation can be Neo-Conned and/or Neo-Libbed into fascism, since the two actually represent the left and right wings of the war-hawk called the State…

Your Immorality is Showing, Statist

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “The Abolitionists Movement,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"Murder is still murder Kidnapping is still kidnapping And, theft is still theft Regardless of the costume you wear"

“Murder is still murder
Kidnapping is still kidnapping
And, theft is still theft
Regardless of the costume you wear”

My Commentary: Pssst… Don’t look now, but your immorality is showing.
