Now I’m not sure where it’ll be, what the justification for it will be, or who’s going to be involved. All I know for certain is that I’m against it.
There will be another war. There always is. That doesn’t mean I have to participate. I won’t. I refuse. They will receive no support from me at all.
Maybe WWII was justified. That was before my time. I grew up with Vietnam on the television -napalm, agent orange, and body counts on the 6 O’clock news. In the end, we see the hippies protesting in the streets were right.
As for Afghanistan and Iraq, there wasn’t anything there worthy of the life of one US Marine. Even the survivors leave a bit of themselves on foreign soil. Sometimes they leave a limb; sometimes they leave a part of their soul.
The people have been lied to (remember weapons of mass destruction?), young men and women have bled, and CEOs made a lot of money.
I am not a pacifist. I’m willing to fight against threats -threats to me and mine. Not to some “allies” that just happen to have good lobbyists. Not for some politician’s reelection. Not for some company’s bottom line. Not for the stock market.
Not as a distraction from real problems.
