War is Dead and So Are We

I was thinking, looking at all video games and the news, that we don't really FIGHT wars any more. A fight is fair. The other guy gets to knock us around, too. No, these days we don't even engage them the do like in the movies.

We exterminate. Decimate. We totally eradicate the enemy and his houses and villages and cites and towns right where he lives – like rats. Might as well have big giant kooshy-hammers that bang down on moles' heads popping up out of sandy caves.

Oh wait, that's pretty much the strategy in Afghanistan already.

So really, it follows then, there is no such thing as WAR any more. Sure, we tell the boys who want to dress up and kill that we FIGHT. But really, it's more like we force our way. We tell the boys….we fight for things. For what's right. Land for one, even if there are people on it already. Decimate. Destroy.

Ideas, for another. Empty things – just words and stories really, but always leading to bleeding to death on purpose in filthy homeless streets. Where is the fight here? When did they hit you? Cold little girls afraid in the dark crushed to death by bedroom bricks blown open from 4 AM bombing missions. Can't help hit a few good horses getting the rats. If terror is anything, it's something much more powerful than you striking you dead while you were sleeping safe and sound.

Everyone else is a terrorist though.

You know back in WWII, the Japanese pilots crashed their planes not into towers of financial wealth, but battleships of war. These were the first suicide bombers. They killed lots of soldiers, even though we eventually fried to a crisp each and every one of their grandmas in a several mile radius of kids and playgrounds. And now the funny thing is they own the greatest part of our national debt. I the taxpayer owe these people and I didn't even do it. We literally locked them up by the family in cages and camps, crimes or not, and now they will have us in the poor house slaving away for them forever for generations to come. So, better fight those terrorists out there.

This means WAR.

Against no country.

Against no people.

No one place.

Just an idea. Fundamentalism, played to the end.

And this is not Hiroshima?

These are not poisoned blankets offered by firemen?

The killing of the Buffalo?

Could it be True?

This reminds me of a cartoon I know...

Thisrael right here (not that one)

Welcome to the end of the world people. Bush just told Israel (after coming back from there a week ago), "don't go bomb Iran." Excuse me, but aren't these the People who brought us the Ten Commandments -- all negative, prohibitive phrases which are just psychological tricks getting us to do the very thing they say not to?


Well, I think the illegal state wars, genocides, and ethnic cleansing (now CLASS cleansing in Africa and Latin America for voters and union activists) point to that one pretty much failing. In fact, every one of the "Commandments" Israel said Moses brought down is automatically set up for intentional failure. The rules should have been set in a more positive statement -- like -- "Have a peanut butter jelly sandwich." We all would be better off today.

The great trick began in so-called Eden, when an omnipotent being said "don't touch that tree." Classic stupid humans! Of course they would. Or at least her. In any case, it's all in the Book about the Tribes of Israel, or Bible as we call it today. So when irony reaches this level of outward global presentation, I just know we're in for a ride of biblical proportions.

Here we are again with the absolute setup. Might as well be a bearded loony on a mountain: Bush comes home from birthday parties in Israel and knows full well he can't invade/attack Iran -- Iraq paved the way but it's just still not kosher enough for us to do it. So Israel will drop the bombs and start it, and we will have to join in.

After all Israel is our (best armed) friend in that region. Genius. All in the plan. Sleep tight Amerika!

Safe From Democracy

With arguments like these, it's easy to see how those formerly persecuted by the Nazis now employ their tactics with justification. It's how the U.S. can kill thousands of innocent civilians with weapons of mass destruction but illegally invade another country just to search for ones that MIGHT be used and were never there in the first place. Oh, and kill thousands in the process.

It's doublethink a la Orwell.

I just hate seeing and hearing it come true. All this "argument" back and forth on whether or not waterboarding is torture is a semantical mess. Of course it is! Someone is tied down, head to the floor, and water is poured over their face and into their nose and mouth so they can't breathe to elicit a confession.

What's that? Being NICE?

In fact, it so much fits the definition of torture that Japanese military personnel (torturers) were executed for committing a crime. The U.S. saw to it that capital punishment was meted out for committing a crime on their and their allied soldiers, and this punishment was death.

So back in WWII, waterboarding was not only torture, but a war crime worth punishment. And now we do it to others trying to say it's not torture, nor a crime. The supporters will say -- but it's to save lives and prevent catastrophe!!!

Well, like Jon Stewart said last night, don't you think the Japanese "interrogators" were trying to stop widespread death and destruction from massive nuclear attack on their nation's innocent civilians (i.e. the atomic bombs we droppped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki) and equally justified this method to extract details on the awful plot?

Oh but that's different. They were in the wrong.

Last time I checked, any right or wrong/good or evil is subjective at best, and there are other people, other cultures, and other religions on this big ball of earth than us. We don't set the rules. I know we think we do, and that is why the world is screwed up and no-one is safe from Democracy.

That's right. From.
