In American it is the opposite mentality.
The racism card was used by the Military in Vietnam to encourage soldiers to "kill the gooks"
Now it's "kill the towel heads"

Now that video upset me ALOT. Please make the warning bigger on your post, I am not so stupid to not know that that kind of activity takes place but it is upsetting to say the least! Worse than animals, I can't say more on it really without breaking just about every T&C on the site.
The speech was bang on target, I hope more wake up like him but I doubt it otherwise there would not be vets who have had multiple tours.
I am sick of all of this rubbish, something needs to change and now.
I am sick of the pro war mindless who think this can be justified in any way.
Population control? I can think of a few elite that should put their names down for first in line. If your gonna lead do it from the front I say!!
Politics and the English Language (1946)
...In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defence of the indefensible. Things like the continuance of British rule in India, the Russian purges and deportations, the dropping of the atom bombs on Japan, can indeed be defended, but only by arguments which are too brutal for most people to face, and which do not square with the professed aims of the political parties. Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemism., question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness. Defenceless villages are bombarded from the air, the inhabitants driven out into the countryside, the cattle machine-gunned, the huts set on fire with incendiary bullets: this is called pacification. Millions of peasants are robbed of their farms and sent trudging along the roads with no more than they can carry: this is called transfer of population or rectification of frontiers. People are imprisoned for years without trial, or shot in the back of the neck or sent to die of scurvy in Arctic lumber camps: this is called elimination of unreliable elements. Such phraseology is needed if one wants to name things without calling up mental pictures of them...
...The inflated style itself is a kind of euphemism. A mass of Latin words falls upon the facts like soft snow, blurring the outline and covering up all the details. The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns as it were instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish spurting out ink. In our age there is no such thing as "keeping out of politics." All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred, and schizophrenia. When the general atmosphere is bad, language must suffer.

This is exactly the point I have been trying to get across in my last few posts...
I am so glad that soldiers are starting to wake up to the reality of what is going on.....
Unfortunately the vets and soldiers that post here on ATS will not agree with the guy in the video..........they want war...they want to follow orders to kill...they want to die for the world bankers...
If everyone would come to their senses like the guy in the video...we could truly live in a world without war....we could truly live in peace!
Thanks for posting the vid.....it made my day...
PEACE and LOVE...

He wants to revolt against those who are ahead of Him (Jealousy) .. get over it, you chose CAPITALISM .. this is WHAT-YOU-GET ...
People like him WORSHIPS capitalism .. but yet .. they complain when people are ahead/and richer ..
His speech reminds me of a Communist Revolution ... (The Irony, eh?)
