I just don't get it. I know Prez Obama has always done his BEST to keep us out of war, & lacking that, to get us back out of the quagmire as soon as possible. I know this has got to be hurting Obama as much as anybody. What a travesty it is, after all we went through for the last 8 years, trying to END useless WARS, trying to balance the Budget, and trying to stop Climate Change and Global Warming from killing off the whole Human Population. At every turn, Obama has had to face fierce antagonism from the right wing. It is like fighting an 85 foot python, underwater, with its skin covered in axle grease, & it has just eaten 30 lb of Vitamin Pills. The GOP war machine is slippery, slimey, & has truly an unending appetite for slaughter.
Since I am sure the GOP are still practicing their old techniques, to avoid any dangers of warfare (to themselves) -- then they will never volunteer (or enlist) --- and only a few guys with few choices of employment would be forced to do that -- so once again, the Democrats will be forced to do all the "fighting" and "dying" for their country --- while the wealthy GOP, who get all the monetary gain (from oil wells, etc) ---- will be sipping mint juleps on Miami Beach, & getting a good sun tan.
So, WHY don't we just practice a few techniques, learned from the Viet Nam era? (1) multiple protest gatherings (2) sending protest letters to all the newspapers & Congress (3) refusal to sign up for the military, in any offshore assignment (4) set up "safe" places where anti-war protestors can camp out, support each other, study survival techniques (5) look into the option of going to Canada, if they will accept us (6) get a long wig and dress like a woman. (be sure to shave your beard daily).
Recite a few slogans like: "Hell NO, -- We Won't GO!" --- and --- "PEACE is our Profession" (from SAC -- the Air Force).
Remind our hawkish GOP that "JESUS was the "Prince of Peace" ---& therefore it is "unChristian" to get into WAR-fare.
Remember the bombing of IRAQ (2003) & how did THAT work out? A total disaster for the entire Middle East, & all the innocent population of IRAQ, (who never threatened us or attacked us), but BUSH Lied -- & said they had weapons of mass destruction --- (totally FALSE) --- but since when can we expect any "honesty" from the GOP? (So far -- NEVER).
Now cling onto this one idea: ----- "What if they held another War, --- and --- Nobody came?" (Think about it : )
