War is Peace?

29 Mar
Is War Peace? Freedom Slavery? Ignorance Strength? As suggested by the leaders of Oceania in George Orwell’s novel, 1984? Well, Here in 2015, the United States, the country with the largest military budget in the history of the world, more than the next 10 militaristic country’s military budgets put together…has finally done it!
Currently we are fighting in Iraq, along side the Iranians, in an effort to defeat the terrorist forces of ISIS. And we are fighting in Yemen, alongside the Saudi Arabians, in an effort to defeat the terrorist forces of the Houthi rebels, who are allied with Iran!
Whose side are we on anyway? …Answer: Yes!
We are now fighting with our enemies against our enemies and they are both us, or at least one is us, or some combination of us and them. It’s quite confusing, but suffice it to say that we are fighting over there so we don’t have to fight here… which is kinda the same thing as saying…well, you know…don’t ya think?
And meanwhile here at home we are fighting over whether we should be increasing the military budget while cutting homes for the homeless, food for the hungry, and healthcare for the unhealthy…which is kinda the same thing as saying…
N’est-ce pas?…or as we like to say here in the USA… Freedom Fries!

    My dad was fond of a quote that I believe he had read in a comic strip or perhaps a book at some point – your post reminded me of it – “We Have Met the Enemy! They is Us” – 🙂

    Wow, I have quickly just red through some of your posts. You have a fantastic writing style. I can’t wait to sit and devoure some more of your writing. Also I have the book mentioned and have never read it, I may need to add that onto my ‘list’.
