The Viet Nam War was a fight to restrict the spread of Communism…(sic) The “war on terror” is really a war of ideologies, faith and belief (religion) based. Much like politicians in America that claim there is a separation of church and state, there is not a ideological split between the two. In the Islamic countries throughout the world they do not deny their heritage and religion are what they will fight and die for. It is their politics. It is their social order. In the Islamic faith they do not worship icons, remember that. Which religions have the stronger faith and belief systems? One with iconic representations or one without? The right temporal portion of our brains retain the capacity and creation of our distortions that derive the sedative to appease our fear of the unknown. A once individual invention of our gods that has been cycloned into resolve and quantification through the organization of the many contrived religions, politics just the same.
“Contemplate fully the complete and total cost of war; the cost in materials wasted and landscapes defaced; the cost of lives destroyed (both combatants and innocents); the cost to the futures of those sent to do the fighting and die, and those who return home internally ravaged without the hope of ever healing or returning to a normal life process; the cost to all who bear the anguish and pain of those life ending casualties and life enduring injuries, including those subsequently borne by the parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, husbands and wives, and their children. They all have in past wars, and will in the present and future wars, bear the scarring and the pain, as well. The cost of war is forever unpaid and, forever everybody pays for it. Consequently and subsequently, war can never be won, nor be forgiven. War, since the infancy of human progression, has been a dichotomy of insanity and sacrifice.
One can crawl deep within the hollow crevasse of human behavior and into the bowels of man’s inhumanity to man and never understand fully, his reasons to bring to bear near total destruction upon his fellow being and his surrounding urban and rural panoramas.
With his untoward behavior meant to inflict injury and death and obliteration upon one another en masse to seek impartiality that we invariably find, in postwar examination, has often far exceeded justice to right an injustice and is, too often, unnecessary when mere negotiation and compromise or avoidance are sufficient, if properly pursued and conducted.
When we defer and protract swift actions, that we deem necessary, solely upon those who we deem are unjust and we become remiss or reluctant to act responsibly, and by failure to do so, we proceed to engage in war, we fail. We fail as a nation; we fail as human beings. But, it is the sanctity of life we fail to uphold and defend, then disembowel and violate, when war is waged.
It is those few whom make those decisions to commence conflict, which irreversibly changes so much, for so many, for so long, who suffer the least. History written by an unknown hand will either compliment or condemn them. For, as long as conflict exists history will be created and recorded, and mankind, down through the ages, will interpret and remember it. And, as long as mankind exists history will remind, but it will not deter those who make the decisions to destroy, in the interest of a paradoxical peace, that which they and their god create”…-Cajazz76:24:8…11/11/2009…( written in disgust, following weeks of broadcasts by the Fox News Punditry Playhouse Pal’s, regarding the delay to increase the fresh American blood supply for the battlefields of Afghanistan in the fall of 2009.)
”This is a war between good and evil, and we have made it clear to the world we will stand strong on the side of good, and we expect other nations to join us. This is not a war between our world and their world. It is a war to save the world.” George W. Bush. U.S. President, Republican… (…”a war to save the world”…An oxymoron composed by one or more morons, spoken by a single moron living on his own contrived planet.)
“When people speak to you about a preventative war, you tell them to go and fight it. After my experience, I have to come to hate war. War settles nothing.”-Dwight D. Eisenhower, U.S. President, Republican…
“This, ‘the war on terror”, is a war that will never have winner’s, only loser’s. You cannot win a war in which the right temporal lobe of the brain is the fortification and bravado of your enemy. You cannot destroy the ideological weapons stored in mankind’s psyche unless you destroy mankind. This is the enemy the U.S. and its NATO allies are fighting. This is the enemy we are to them, and we are a much weaker foe, despite our greater battlefield technology.”- cajazz 76:24:8…Poor choices can only result in poor outcomes of consequence….Silly Human Race…caj.
