Or are they murderous, mindless, villians?
There are too many around us, and that may include you, who express this sentiment about our armed forces "our heores" conversely the same can
express disdain for the administration. Is this duplicity? Yes, it would seem so.
Are people showing their patriotism for their country by lobbying behind their armed forces? Or, are they showing their support, good wishes and love
for their family and friends fighting in Iraq?
Yet it would appear there is a split done the line, where so many who are actually supporting "our heroes" do not actually support the war? Hold the
phone, that seems like a contradiction. Is it not "our heores" that are instrumenting the orders of the administation in the first place. Is it not
true without "our heroes" implementing the orders of the administration, there would be no war at all?
So if you are supporting "our heores" logic dictates, you must be supporting the war and you must be supporting the administration.
Hold on there, I hear you say. "I am not supporting Bush," "I am not supporting the war" yet that is what you think, because in action, mind, body
and heart, you are supporting "our heroes" who are supporting the administration of Bush. So, by a simple logical deducation; in action, mind, body
and heart, you are supporting the Bush administration and it's policies. What I have said can be characterized by the infamous Pyramid structure on
the back of a dollar bill.
You are supporting "our heroes", they are supporting the "administration" the administration is supporting a global agenda. So, while you may not
endorse the agenda of the administration, you are nonethless supporting it. If you were to withdraw your support, the administration would collapse.
If you are not willing to do this. Then, it must mean you support the administration. It does not matter what your opinion is of it, because that
exists only in the realm of your mind, not in the physical. In the same way workers on the bottom of the pyramid of an organization, whom may complain
about their wages, about their job, they may dislike or hate the organization in which they work, but nonetheless support it physically. The irony is,
what they hate, is what they empower.
So who are you? A nationalist or a patriot?
There are many who are showing their patriotism by supporting the armed forces? But as shown above, that really is supporting the administration and
it's policies, so perhaps a more apt world would be nationalism or jingoism? Are you proud to be called a nationalist or jingoist, or indeed even a
fanatic? Because that is what you have chosen to be - apparently.
So now that we have established your support for the administration. Let's shift focus to those special souls who matter - "our heroes" For them to
be our heroes, you must know the following to be true:
1. They are genuinely heroes that protect and serve the people by putting their own lives at stake. After all they have gone to a foreign country to
liberate people from evil.
2. They are family or friends sent to war, therefore they must be your "heroes"
3. They are our armed forces, therefore they must be "our heroes"
But, it appears the first one is not true. I think it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that the people of Iraq are not being protected
or liberated, except we could say 100,000+ Iraqi's have been liberated from their bodies, i.e. killed. Nor, does it take a rocket scientist to figure
out, that some dozens, if not hundreds of Iraqi's being abused in prison camps, or forced by the barrel of a gun to be marked with DNA and retina
scans, is protection.
So it must be '2' or '3' which means "our heores" are only "our heores" because they are our family or friends, or because they in our armed
forces. So it's an emotional support. And those emotions are greater than the lives of some 100,000 men, women and children. Yet, in hard, physical
realirty, there is nothing that justifies the titles of "our heroes"
There IS a lot in reality, however, that does not support the title of "our heroes" Reports abound in every conflict, "our heores" have
been involved in, of stupidity, arrogance, abuse, rape, pillaging and racism. Of course we know many of these reports to be true too.
Did anyone see "Casualities of War" based on a true story, where an entire squadron was involved in abducting a Vietnamise girl, gang raping her,
and then shooting her in cold blood. Does anyone know that US soliders, sergants and generals are actually involved in ganging raping girls, and
killing them, in Kosovo, and are involved in the operation of many brothels for prostitution, whose primary customers are "our heroes" mind you this
is after they "liberated" Kosovo. Does anyone know a US general was involved in the rape of a 14 year old boy in Iraq just recently?
Are "our heroes" criminals? Actually, maybe a lot of them are. Did you not know that criminals are drafted into the US army. They are given a
choice: "Go to jail or join the army" I wonder how many have chosen "go to prison". Of course, such criminal actions of "our heroes" are not
just confined abroad. Haven't "our heroes" been involved in brutally attacking our own citizens in Miami, Portland, Seattle? Haven't "our
heroes" been involved in shooting little children, shooting peoples dogs? Haven't our heroes been involved in the mass murder of WACO?
So who joins our military? criminals? sexually frustrated men? deprived men? cold-blooded murderers? bullies? beer junkies?
Yet, so many maintain they are "our heroes" so If they really are "our heroes" that are "liberating" and "protecting" people - then maybe we
need to change the meaning of the words. Maybe, "hero" should really mean a vile, wicked, evil and criminal person. Maybe "liberating" should mean
to oppress and enslave. And maybe, "protecting" should mean to abuse, hurt, damage, molest and kill.
So, does this mean, that by supporting "our heroes" not only are you supporting the US government administration, and it's policies, but you 're
also supporting it's actions; rape, genocide, murder, pillaging, oppression.
I wonder if the Nazi's were "our heroes"
