what I think...from a Marine
« on: August 12, 2017, 05:28:35 pm »
Whether you agree with present or past President's agenda/views....I think this is scary.
Rhetoric????  Not so sure...Bully?  Perhaps.  One should not make blatent comments, unless  he plans to follow up on said plans.

Future?   I am glad I haved lived a full life and ready....
to meet MY maker when ready...
to .....
move to Guam....?????????

A lot of hatred in that attachment. But reflective in many ways of facets of American society today.

To quote;  . . . You all bang the war drum in the cozy confines of your home, knowing myself and many others will have to abandon our lives - again . . .

No Marine, you do not need to abandon your life - again. You have options. You can say, "Sir, No Sir". If enough of the military had the stones to do likewise, to see and understand options, the entire war dialogue would change. And change starts with one person.

While Major General Butler believed taking profit out of war was the only way to end foreign intervention, it is also possible to end the military industrial state simply by refusing to be a pawn in the game. Do not do the biddings of the rich and powerful.
Pax, Amor, Libertas

What light is to the eyes, what air is to the lungs, what love is to the heart, Freedom is to the souls of humankind.
