Makes for some good stories especially UFO/Para encounters over war zones.

War forces us to innovate. Our present technological society exists largely due to advances we made in 20th Century wars.

War allows us to see what humanity really is. It's an extreme event that brings out the worst and the best of us. War gives us villains, but also heroes among the most ordinary of us. It reinforces what we value.

In the old days, war mixed humanity's DNA and made us the tough smart animals we are today. It helped us move past old and stagnant cultures and ideas and force an ongoing social evolution that went with the physical.

War is entertaining. Half of the stories we write and listen to are about war - real and fictional and in-between. And humanity is all about stories.

The government is not here to do you good.

They are there to do them good.

You are one of their pee-on sheeps they herd.

Presently war has been used by factions to conquer land and resources , and decide what social class runs each society..

I figure you can break all societies up into a few groups..

Your aristocracy.

Your merchant class.

Your various coalitions of the peasantry..
Sometimes it is the military peasants..
Sometimes labor groups of the peasants..



Then all the wars are fought afraid the ruling class of another country might help topple the ruling class of a home country..

The primary rationale to fight in WW2 was to push back against brutal imperialism.


Really? Did you learn that in school? Damn worthless liberal education.

The reason we entered WW2 was this little thing called Pearl Harbor. Link

I learned that in Why We Fight.



See just before the 11 minute mark:

"No matter how you slice it (all three in the Axis of Evil) its just plain old militaristic imperialism".

For self-defence, to maintain or restore peace, to protect people against tyranny, ethnic cleansing and genocide.

I suggest a more classical education than war propaganda films.

So you don’t believe that the US declared war and fought the Japanese shortly after the Japanese attacked us? But, you would rather believe a 76 year old political propaganda film. You would enjoy expanding your understanding through reading about history in authentic history books.

Not exactly on topic, but this thread seems to have died it's deserved death so just thought I'd drop this here. Yesterday in another thread someone asked me what the US military does besides murder millions of people.

US military assisting rescue of trapped Thai soccer team
