“Freedom isn’t Free” means some-more than promulgation American troops off to war, it requires the participatory citizenship of Americans here at home.
As it was with Vietnam, the War on Terror was a fight of choice advocated for prolonged before a domestic justification was introduced. Vietnam had its Gulf of Tonkin occurrence and the attacks of 9/11/01 brought us the 9/11 Wars. Investigative publisher Pepe Escobar’s “This fight brought to you by” from 3/20/03 described how the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) had been lobbying given 1997 for wars in the Middle East and Asia. Retired General Wesley Clark was told by colleagues in the Pentagon just 9 days after the attacks of 9/11/01 that the arriving War on Terror designed for the overpower and regime change of 7 countries in 5 years (Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran), as per the PNAC paper of Sep 2000. So distant 5 of the 7 countries have been dismissed or destabilized, and Iran and Lebanon sojourn in the crosshairs of the stream administration.
The government’s central story concerning the Gulf of Tonkin occurrence valid to be a counsel dubious of the American people. The Tonkin Gulf Resolution, upheld just 3 days after the ostensible attack on U.S. destroyers off the seashore of North Vietnam, allowed the White House to salary fight in Vietnam for the next 8 years until the American people had had adequate of it. The Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) upheld overwhelmingly by Congress 3 days after the attacks of 9/11/01, with no review and very little debate, also gave the White House a vacant check to salary fight on “terrorism” … a behavior, not a republic state … anywhere and on anyone on the world it saw fit. The AUMF of 9/14/01 continues to this day to be the sole justification used for the ongoing 9/11 Wars.
The “Masters of War” schooled from Vietnam; next time do not levy a military draft, buy up and connect the media to control the messaging and reporting, and then get the entertainers and articulate heads to applaud anyone who wears a uniform as a “hero” for gripping us protected and safeguarding the “freedoms”. Let’s also remember Reich Marshall Hermann Goering’s matter at Nuremberg, “The people can always be brought to the behest of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being pounded and malign the peacemakers for miss of nationalism and exposing the country to danger.” So any doubt or criticism of the wars abroad risks being noticed by one’s fellows as not ancillary the troops sent into harm’s way on what story has shown many mostly to be a lie.
Until we the American people perform the own due industry per the government’s “justification” for putting the troops into harm’s way, to embody holding accountable to the fullest border of the law those who have misled us into war, “thank you for your service” is not enough.
