Perhaps you were a patriot ? Or perhaps you were drafted ?
Or then again, like many in the US and other armed-forces today, you couldn't get a job and Army pay and conditions looked good ?
Were you swayed by WW2 tub-thumping movies starring John Wayne and Audie Murphy, perhaps ?
You know .. all those dozens of movies in which one American killed an entire platoon of 'geeks' or 'krauts' ? Gee, they were great movies, huh
-- showing America 'winning the war' and 'saving the world' ?
Shame they were all BS, huh ?
But, you say you went to Viet Nam (can't count the thousands of people who've claimed the same from behind the anonymity of their screen)
and when you came back --- no more movie heroes ! No flag waving ! No respect on the street for Vets !
Maybe that was because Americans were beginning to get a clue about the truth and reality of the US involvement in wars by then ?
Maybe a few Americans realised that those who never
went to war (although they wore the uniform sometimes, for effect, like good ole
Commander in Chief Bush and the equally craven draft dodger Cheyney) .. well, maybe Americans had worked out by Viet Nam that the rich and powerful
draft-dodgers and their fathers and grandfathers had made PROFIT from all those wars, selling to both sides .. selling to the enemy the bullets with
which Americans were killed
AFTER which, their cronies in Hollywood covered it all in ridiculous amounts of BS and portrayed all American wars (many of them fought for their now
Israeli friends) as 'wars that saved the world'. Except the world was boooo-ing every time one of those BS American movies was shown .. and
laughing .. and telling each other the truth -- mainly that America (and its friends now in the new 'state of israel') HAD to have wars, LOTS of
wars, to keep that American economy ticking over
So, sorry you weren't feted after your claimed stint in the 60s, 70s ... but then again, maybe you didn't realise (maybe you still don't?) that the
truth about Americans raping and torturing civilians and exercising all their perversions which would have put them behind bars in the good ole USA --
all those perversions were KNOWN now, and talked about. And people yelled, 'American .. Go Home'.
But .. if you still feel patriotic and still want to be a hero .. maybe you could turn your sights on your American politicians (and their Israeli
friends) and do a bit of 'fighting for justice and to save the world' right THERE .. AT HOME .. in the US ?
That's what the ancient Greeks taught their children: Justice, like Charity, begins AT HOME.
ONLY when you've sorted out the USA's problems should any American presume to carry a gun into any other nation
And let's not have any more BS, ok? America CREATES wars in order to PROFIT from wars. And the US HAS profited from war, all the way through.
Except it wets its pants at the thought of any hostilities on its own shores. And the world is well aware of that. Time Americans became aware of it
