War Pigs - The Fall Of A Global Empire

This is a good report.

War is not healty for children!

"As Americans mindlessly celebrate another Memorial Day with cookouts, beer and burgers, the U.S. war machine keeps churning. As we brutally enforce our will on foreign countries, we create more people that hate us. They don’t hate us for our freedom. They hate us because we have invaded and occupied their countries. They hate us because we kill innocent people with predator drones. They hate us for our hypocrisy regarding democracy and freedom. Just when we had the opportunity to make a sensible decision by leaving Iraq and exiting the Middle East quagmire, Obama made the abysmal choice to casually sacrifice more troops in the Afghan shithole. We have thrown over $1.3 trillion down Middle East rat holes over the last 11 years with no discernible benefit to the citizens of the United States. George Bush and Barack Obama did this to prove they were true statesmen. The Soviet Union killed over 1 million Afghans, while driving another 5 million out of the country and retreated as a bankrupted and defeated shell after ten years. Young Americans continue to die, for whom and for what? Our foreign policy during the last eleven years can be summed up in one military term, SNAFU – Situation Normal All Fucked Up. These endless foreign interventions under the guise of a War on Terror are a smoke screen for what is really going on in this country. When a government has unsolvable domestic problems, they try to distract the willfully ignorant masses by proactively creating foreign conflicts based upon false pretenses. General Douglas MacArthur understood this danger to our liberty."

“I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.”

"The War Pigs must be stopped before it’s too late. The Military Industrial Complex, with the unwavering support of central bankers printing unlimited amounts of fiat currency, while controlling the scoundrel puppets in Washington DC, will destroy this country in their never ending quest for power and profits. One man fights a lonely battle against these forces of oppression. We must join his legion and take this country back from the war pigs."

“As many frustrated Americans who have joined the Tea Party realize, we cannot stand against big government at home while supporting it abroad. We cannot talk about fiscal responsibility while spending trillions on occupying and bullying the rest of the world. We cannot talk about the budget deficit and spiraling domestic spending without looking at the costs of maintaining an American empire of more than 700 military bases in more than 120 foreign countries. We cannot pat ourselves on the back for cutting a few thousand dollars from a nature preserve or an inner-city swimming pool at home while turning a blind eye to a Pentagon budget that nearly equals those of the rest of the world combined.” – Ron Paul

I have to say that the

I have to say that the article on ZeroHedge is perhaps one of the most cogent I have every read in my life on the subject...It should be required reading for every single politician, every bureaucrat and every person serving in the military.

You know the quality...

The Light is the Knowledge and it resonates with other Lights.

As one growing community here getting larger and larger, so too the Light is also growing brighter.

Give thanks.

Everything about the scourge of war is here

Should be front page everywhere on this Memorial Day.

Truthbearer's picture

A little...

...faltering for this of all the articles posted here should have been on the front page this day of any other day. Now it is almost gone and this important info slips away into the past here. One wonders if there are any mods working today? It is not too late for the night crew to chime in on this issue of war...memorializing our fallen...and praying that awareness of the madness might make a difference in stopping all this insanity of war.

Bump to front page for Memorial Day only.

Here is more to check out.

Ya know...

...it is amazing how such sub-cultural misgivings can turn out to be historical monikers that change the world in most beautimous ways.

Thanks for this and embedding it into the original thread for educational purposes only.

Great works seem to gather here in all the arts and music for which we are so grateful for. Truly, a Renaissance of mankind takes place here every day on the DP. Is it little wonder the world tunes in here for the latest changelings from higher and such greater places.

We just give humble thanks at the end of each day in which there is still a chance that mankind will wake up in time to stop the out right blatant INSANITY taking place every day in this world of beauty...and still a magnificent garden to grow into and not die in as another generation...another civilization that only fell to itself and the greatest of all sin. Ignorance is not a friend of man...but is is sure embraced by the willing every night on national digital mind control TV.

Pray to a greater Light in your hearts that soon the mass mind will shift and that hundredth monkey will DO the right thing at the RIGHT time to save us all from this evil corruption and criminal activity run rampant in the land of the brave...and still home of the free.

To our esteemed Mods...

...can we put this on the front page for all to see and learn from?

Thanks for those who have not read this yet.

Agreed.

very well written, informative and relative.

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Benjamin Franklin

It is a very good article,

It is a very good article, however, I would watch how much we tout Eisenhower and MacArthur. Don't forget that those two with George Patton killed WWI veterans in Washington D.C. or the area close to it. The WWI vets assembled to petition the federal government; they were known as "The Bonus Army."

OMG... This is one of the most comprehensive

and well written articles I have read. It covers all of the areas of insanity (economic, moral, practical) that are encompassed by the US foreign policy. It is long but there is just no place to stop as this author has done a superb job! THANKS for this post. Wish I could give it more than one point!!!!

Very frustrating that because this was posted in the

early morning hours it is "beyond time" for the favorites column, and isn't getting put on the front page. This is just so well done I had to bump it up!

I'm trying to fix that now, elviejo. This is a great post.

The DP posting system isn't perfect, but still not too bad.
I shut-off my comments and linked to this original one.

One of you talented videographers should put some modern images and video to this song. I think it would be pretty powerful.

Some have.

Not the one I was looking for. Saw one a few years ago that was awesome. Will continue the search. Enjoy...if that is even an applicable term to use.

me too.

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds... Oh Lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor, yeah

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'till their Judgment day comes, yeah!

Now in darkness, world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs of the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of Judgment, God is calling
On their knees the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings
Oh Lord yeah!
