Back to Endless War… Again!

BACK TO ENDLESS WAR

When the 13 years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan were coming to an end, I predicted that there would be some in the government and media that would start another. And that would keep us in endless war.*

Keeping the US in endless wars, and in middle east conflicts, will not improve anything – many seem to suggest that success hasn’t happened for a decade but it’s about to change if we just invade, bomb, and spend more.

Remember the other side knows that the quickest way to sap the strength of this country is to keep it in perpetual war. That saps our resources, standing in the world, best and brightest young people, and spirit. It also allows the government to silence many of it’s critics – which it often does in even small wars.

We need leaders with the courage to stand up to endless war. We need leaders that can lead the world with power and strength, not bombs.

These endless wars not only hurt us there, but they hurt us HERE. That’s the part you never hear..

By refusing to talk about what this massive war spending is doing to the US side of the equation, the government is not telling the entire story and the media is slanting all the news. Before we decide to do another war we should both consider what it does there and what it does HERE.

Remember the cost of one middle east war would have ended poverty in the US through CBA’s community bank account.

Which would have better protected the interests of this country- war over there or no poverty here? That’s the other side of this issue. Talk about both sides please.

The enemies of our country know that the fastest way to ruin the US is to keep us in endless war.

Government, Media, and people, don’t get enamored with war. Before the US gets directly involved in any way, in any conflict or war, anywhere, we need to do the following 8 steps.
1. Let the combatants solve it – if they can’t
2. Let regional leaders and neighbor countries solve it – if they can’t
3. Let the UN solve it – if they can’t
4. US put pressure on combatants to solve it – if they can’t
5. US put pressure on regional leaders and neighbor countries to solve it – if they can’t
6. US put pressure on the UN to solve it – if they can’t
7. US put pressure on our allies to work with us to solve it.
THEN and ONLY THEN should the US even CONSIDER getting directly involved.
8. Consider that the cost of one war would end poverty in the US. Weigh the two options carefully. Would fighting this war really be better for US interests than ending poverty in the country?
============
To force the country into a war do the following: find a horrible incident. spotlight it and use it for selfish gain and endless war.

 

PART TWO Replace War with a Constructive Peace.

Replace war with a constructive, more secure peace, to better protect the country. The strongest nation should lead the world, in ending war; not be bogged down in fighting them.

1. First end the wars we are in.
2. Next use our power to not only keep the US out of war, but to stop all other wars from starting,
3. Support economic and social issues that prevent war, and support penalties for those in wars.
4. Set up and support conflict resolution methods to stop wars in a fair way for all sides involved, before they begin.

    There will always be disputes – should we take sides and bomb in everyone? Just the middle east? Our choice is not limited to two: bomb or retreat. There are hundreds of better options.
    The reason we should lead without war is this, remember the other side knows that the quickest way to sap the strength of this country is to keep it in perpetual war. That saps our resources, standing in the world, best and brightest young people, and spirit. It also allows the government to silence many of it’s critics – which it often does in even small wars.
    Then too no one talks about what the war is doing here – the cost of one war would end poverty here in the US. Which would better secure our country, bombing in the middle east or ending poverty in the US? That’s the real question.

    Back to endless war…. again. Cold war ends – rush to mideast wars. Those two were coming to a close after 13 years so … rush back into war. There is always some incident horrific enough to keep endless war going. But what it takes is leadership with courage – a lot of courgage – to say no more endless wars. War is the quickest way to drain our country of everything good. The real win is when you pull back from war for your country’s sake.

  3. musea Says:

    The real courage is a leader that will say no to endless war! Why does anyone think that even though 13 years of bombing didn’t work, the 14th year will – in an area that has not been at peace for centuries ? That’s more a cuckoo bird than a hawk

  4. musea Says:

    Be strong and courageous. Do these two things
    1. go after the specific men that caused the killings of the US citizens
    2. stand up and say no to war, and that endless war doesn’t help there in the middle east, and saps us here in the US. Be smart enough to know what our enemies know: the quickest way to sap the strength of this country is to keep it in perpetual war. That saps our resources, standing in the world, best and brightest young people, and spirit. It also allows the government to silence many of it’s critics – which it often does in even small wars.

    Congress, I am not in war for the ‘long haul”,so why are you?

  6. musea Says:

    Some in congress say before we give any aid to Americans in our country we need to find the revenue. How about the same thing here – before we go on with these endless wars, we need to find the revenue to pay for them. Least that might slow down the chest thumping for a bit, until wiser leaders explain why the disaster we had for 13 years, won’t all end by doing the same thing for the ‘long haul’.

  7. musea Says:

    This is crazy. Every penny Congress spends for our country causes a major debate and division. But throw billions on more mideast wars and both parties can’t vote for it fast enough.

    You’d think that 13 years of failure would teach you something.
    Tougher leadership would isolate those that did the atrocities, target them specifically, and then be strong enough to end these endless wars.

    When no one else wants to get involved, doesn’t that tell you something? When no Asian country wants to get in this mess, doesn’t that tell you something? When we can’t limit the strike to those that caused it, but make it so large that it takes us into more war – after 13 years of failure, doesn’t that tell you something?
    The real courageous leaders would stand up to endless war, and stop it. then limit response to the specific threat,

    Celebrate
    while you can
    cause any day now
    some idiot will
    thump his chest
    and start a war!
