A Global force for good?Submitted by deleted-by-requ... on Wed, 04/25/2012 - 17:31
I thought the US had a military to defend OUR country. Apparently now admit that they see themselves as Team America: World Police. What the US government is in fact is a proto-one world government. Interesting article on the new concept of the military as a global force not for America but for "good" whoever defines that:
"Unwinding with one of my guilty pleasures recently -- Spike TV's "Ultimate Fighter" reality show -- I caught a couple of recruitment ads for America's armed services with an oddly touchy-feely tone.
The first showcased the Navy's new slogan, "A Global Force for Good." "I have heard the call to serve," the narrator proclaims, and he'll carry that call close to his heart until "the anguish of those less fortunate has been soothed."
The second featured a voice-over intoning that: "Marines move toward the sounds of tyranny, injustice and despair -- with the courage and resolve to silence them ... by ending conflict, instilling order and helping those who can't help themselves."
Noble sentiments, to be sure, but the War on Despair sounds even broader than the amorphous War on Terror that's consumed American blood and treasure for over a decade now. And "helping those who can't help themselves" is a far taller order than fighting "our country's battles" on air, land and sea. When did the U.S. military morph into the Peace Corps with guns?"
