They already know that. The media is being run by the big corporations which is why we are subjected to all their BS.All weekend long I've been listening to "Talking heads" on TV "Thanking Veterans for protecting and dying for our "Freedoms!" Bull Shit!!
The only military service men who died for our freedoms were World War II military. Japan and Germany were direct threats to Americans everywhere in the world!
Korea? Our troops fought to a draw and died for South Koreans. Americans were not in danger from the North Koreans.
Vietnam? Our troops fought to a draw to die for the South Vietnamese who were not capable enough to stand for themselves. I was one Vietnam Vet who spent two tours there and when we cut and ran it left me scratching my head and wondering what the hell was it all for. For those who deny the US cut and ran, try Googling the picture of the helicopter on the roof of our embassy.
Iraq? Our troops fought to their death to protect and defend the Kuwaiti oil fields Nothing to do with the "Freedom" of Americans!
Iraq II? Never have figured out what Americans were in danger of losing their "Freedom" there that go around!
Afghanistan? Again, that was revenge for the Twin Towers. Americans had already died, so going into Afghanistan was more a case of revenge and to kill Osama bin Laden. No need to defend the "Freedom" of those killed in the Twin Towers. Their souls were freed by the attack!
I wish someone would educate the talking heads that the military is being used more politically by the party in power than to protect American's "Freedom!"
During my lifetime it seems when the Party in Power decided the war was over they simply pulled up their toys and playthings and called it quits. "The war is over folks, nothing more to watch."
