Stupid Wars Destroy the Military

The war in Iraq is ruining military recruitment as it should. Just one more catastrophic result of a religious president asking his invisible friend, god, to give us victory in a war we launched without ethics.

Only an idiot would sign up to serve in this military under this president. Soldiers in Iraq are NOT dying for America. They are dying for George "Wrong Way" Bush. Many Americans would be willing to die for American freedom but who wants to die for George W. Bush in a stupid, unethical war? Who wants to die for a draft-dodging, silver-spoon-in-mouth president who lacked the integrity to complete his comfortable national guard duty while others were drafted to die in Vietnam?

The only real difference between Iraq and Vietnam is that soldiers in Iraq volunteered. If this president starts drafting young men as slave soldiers and sending them to die in the Iraqi meat grinder, we'll start seeing anti-war protests just like Vietnam all over again.

I agree. If there were a draft and these conservative, blind patriots would realize that they might actually have to fight in the war, I think they would take a more objective, rational approach to whether the war was being fought the right way.

And what arrogance to think that god (which doesn't exist in the first place) would favor America for some reason! Anybody who claims to speak for god is either crazy or has way too much money.

Re. what Brad said - "if there were a draft...they might actually have to fight in the war..." -

Well Brad, neither they nor their sons and daughters will have to fight in the war, because for sure they will get draft deferments for the flimsiest reasons (and perversely and sadly the most effective - MONEY), while kids from middle class and poorer families, who don't have rich parents to protect them, will be drafted and killed. Isn't that what happened in the Vietnam war?

And VJack, anyone who presumes to speak for a god is not just crazy, they also have too much time on their hands, which in turn must come from all the money that sheeples (I just love that term!) have generously donated to the right wing by voting for them, against their own economic good... ::rolling eyes::

Wonder how long the Republican right wing base will hold on, once the draft is back, and the same sheeples' children are being butchered in a needless war...

Actually, I live in the south, and most of the blind patriots are not that rich. But yes, the rich ones will always get out of it.

Sheeples

Those "blind patriots" who are middle class to poor, and who have voted for the Republican religious right, against their own economic interests, just so they can impose on someone they don't know that they can't marry a person of the same sex, or *gasp* have an abortion.

I do not quite agree with your assessment here.

The Americans who sign up for the Army are not dying for George Bush alone. They are dying for those blood-sucking corporations that got Bush into the Oval Office, plus, of course, the son of a Bush.

Regardless, good blog, my friend. You may want to visit mine as well.

Sincerely
The Beast
