We’re fools to make war on our brothers in arms……..
I sometimes think of WWII as the last time we engaged in a “moral” war. We didn’t start that one, but it was a good act to stop it.
Then I think not. We dropped two atomic bombs on people. WE became the master scary alien race with the weapons of mass destruction. WE were no longer just men behind the curtain, we were the great Oz and our will be done.
Every war since that time has been completely immoral, that is my opinion. Chess moves for world economic domination.
The real problem for me, is that once I unlearned history, none prior really were either. The Spanish American War? Did we “free” anyone? No, we took Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines for our own, and hung on to Cuba for a while. Were any of them really ever moral? The history books’ propaganda just no longer washes when you know the Civil War was more about economic dominance than slavery. Every story told me has back story I’m now convinced is only the tip of the lying iceberg.
Cmdr Jeff Huber wrote yesterday of “Two wrongs…” in his article.
It started me thinking. There are no moral wars, perhaps only moral acts within a immoral framework.
In the meantime, we mourn and honor the dead of our Wars today. Many moral young people, who acted with individual bravery and compassion in the arena that is the hell of war. Soldiers who died, and are dying still. Lost souls to the ultimate immoral act of armchair warriors sending them to die for what causes? There is no “moral war” to me anymore.
I wish you all a fine day. I wish you innocence for a day, forgiveness for each other and the world, love and a spark of what it means to believe no more war into being….
