Peace through Peace
It should now be clear to everyone that “peace through strength” is a failure. It’s time to try peace through peace. How is it we can go about this? First we must examine what has been going on in the minds of our so called leaders in washingtOOn. It has been the claim of the current criminal regime in the white house that the US should assume the strategic and tactical posture of “preemptive strike.” This stupid idea means that the US can invade another country anytime it’s leadership BELIEVES we are under threat.
Poster child for preemptive strike
What did the bush crime family believe about Iraq before they ordered their preemptive strike invasion? Who the hell knows at this point! What did they TELL us they believed?
WMD, the check is in the mail, I won’t come in your mouth…
Whether they really BELIEVED their own bullshit is being covered by many others. What I want to do in this post is figure out how to prevent a future group of idiot con artists from dragging us into the next disaster of a war. What about the checks and balances offered by congressional oversight? Remember, both houses of congress authorized this preemptive strike on Iraq!
Poster child for the asleep at the switch failure of congressional oversight.
The final level of oversight comes from We The People. I’m afraid that unlike me and a few others, too many of us were also asleep at the switch in the lead up to this present war. I did my best to convince those around me that this war would be a disaster. I now take very little pleasure that I was right all along. The question remains, how do we go about preventing the next disaster? For that we must take the following simple change of view to heart:
Resolved: WAR is a FAILURE of foreign policy, NOT an instrument thereof!
Every stinking, dirty, murderous war the power elite have dragged us into throughout human history!
What will be the end of the congressional, executive, military industrial complex? That end will come when we the people stop falling for the overcomplicated, over analysis of the overpaid, over credentialed militarist wing of the intelligentsia. We The People must cut through all their international interventionist blather and see one simple self evident truth. War always leads to the next war. PEACE IS AN END ONTO ITSELF! Each of us must start this peace in ourselves. We must shed the yoke of the power elite, we must shake off the hypnotizing effect of their bullshit industry which turns too many of us into bovine nodders for their present and future “glorious war efforts.” Far too many of the people around me have been willing, in past and even in present, to moo the “support the troops” mantra. The time to moo is over!
Peace, like charity, begins here at home. It is what we in my home of the US can, and must, now do to create that peace that my next post will cover…
