Watching the observance – one almost says celebration – of D-Day, I can’t help but remark that aside from the few veterans, most ‘celebrants’ are too young to remember it and/or have never put themselves in harm’s way. Indeed, many have worked hard to avoid military service while loudly urging others to fight.
A few postings have appeared of Ike’s comment:
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.
or General Butler’s “War Is a Racket” but for blunt truth, it’s hard to beat a soldier telling it like it is.
And for a good example of how the warmongers operate, consider St. Ronnie.
