Is no one else just kind of....... Tired with war?
I know I am, and I've never seen war! It's all you hear these days isn't it - war, war, rumours of wars. More war! Let's have another war, because war.
I'm starting to think that these military types, the generals and the captains have been 'at war' for a little TOO LONG and can't come back to a sane mentality. They see war everywhere and all the time. Politicians are, lets be honest, genetically predispositioned to kill other people's children for votes. War to politicians is a numbers game, or as Smedley Butler so eloquently stated "My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military"... It's a mind game for the generals.
He also said "We must take the profit out of war".
READ THAT AGAIN ^
If we don't end war, it will end us. Period. Saying that, what can we do when the structure built around us is literally all pro war, pro death, pro violence? I think we've dug our own grave and we already have one foot inside it.
Putting boots on the ground is a stupidly PC way of saying "we're sending people to die". When you change the language you're already being a dishonest idiot. This is ATS, "boots on the ground" shouldn't even be used. Let the politicians talk such utter tripe.
