Thanks for your feedback. Yes, a lot of dreaming goes along with solutions to war. Nowadays, the world is so corrupt and bitter, that most things are met with skepticism, to say the least. Even a saint would get spat upon & heckled, and in the old days, they burnt "Joan of Arc" at the stake, for trying to help her king win the war. From what I can gather, the story of Joan of Arc was a TRUE STORY. But I don't know for sure..... No matter what we do, or try to do, seems to only make things worse. The Middle East is such a Hell Hole, it does not seem to have any solution, & as long as we keep pretending we can FIND the solution, we are just digging our own grave, faster and deeper. The expense of warfare is enough to destroy our Economy, if we keep this up, --- waging war with several nations, while our govt is going bankrupt due to Republican greed.
And if you realize our GOP leaders, have been in bed with Soviet Communists for 2 generations or more, at least since 1960, when the John Birch Society let Fred C. Koch (father of the Koch Bros) -- who lived in Soviet Russia, learning all of the OIL business, & then came back to Wichita, KS to increase his wealth all over the USA, & used the Birch apparatus of many radio stations, & TV stations, & magazines, etc -- plus the pulpits of many churches, -- to spread subversive communist ideas
all over America, (prominently, they said "America was not supposed to be a DEMOCRACY" -- which is a TOTAL LIE) and from there they started spreading slander against our leaders, such as JFK, who they killed in 1963) -- & all of this was to takeover the US Government, & turn it into a Fascist Communist Dictatorship, where they "rig" our elections, where they are out-sourcing all our industry to other nations, so OUR people have no jobs, but the wealthy GOP corporate CEO's are making out like "bandits" -- (which they are). The Koch brothers are actual Communists (their father raised them in Russia) & they are doing anything they can to destroy America (including waging useless wars, to bankrupt our economy & kill off all our young men who could defend us). The GOP have no compassion for the workers or middle class here, although they pretend to be "so Christian" all the time, with their phoney Falwell religions, which are based on Greed & Bullshit.
I have spoken recently about the Moral Majority, which robbed their donors & the IRS, and the U.S. Postal service all at the same time. It shows how far they will go, for MONEY, & POWER, & then tell hideous LIES to hypnotize their Flock.
Recently, they put out the "Left Behind" series of "fictional" Novels, & they preach that to their congregations, so that quite a few of them actually believe, that when they get old, they do not actually die, but just float up to heaven on a pink cloud or a golden chariot, & live in glorious splendor in a castle (possibly Trump Tower) & drink champagne & eat caviar & float in their swimming pool all day. At night, they cruise and booze in their chauffeur-driven limousines.
But I think that the words "left behind" actually describes their success in grade school, about the time they should have been studying "science". The general wisdom of our GOP candidates is rather dismal, & makes me shudder to think what could happen if any of them gains control of our Congress. George Bush as an example. He was drunk or on dope most of the time he was supposed to be in the National Guard in Texas (during the Viet Nam War). It was a place where only the "privileged" boys (insert "rich") -- could go, to avoid getting their fingernails dirty, their hair mussed up, or their ass shot off. Since the ordinary boys were sent, against their will, to filthy jungles full of well-armed "gooks" -- & many thousands of them never came home. Or not in one piece. Right then, Georgie Bush was AWOL from his cushy Nat'l Guard post. Yep, it was too hard to expect him to show up once a month & sit in a hall for half an hour. He just wanted to be back on the Bush family Ranch, watching his dog Barney, chasing an armadillo. Honestly, it is the best choice for him. Imagine him with a gun. And for that matter, imagine Cheney with a gun. Remember Cheney shooting a "pal" of his (in the face) while they were "hunting?" That must have been his first "bulls-eye" in many years.
Maybe some day, somebody will tell Cheney & Bush that IRAQ is not the country we were supposed to bomb. The guys who toppled the Twin Towers were from Yemen, (or ?) And Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with Al Quaeda, & had never threatened us or attacked us. So we bankrupted the USA & killed thousands of our soldiers, & caused a Middle East crisis, & this led to ISIS -- because Bush & Cheney were total idiots when it comes to simple geography, or even telling the truth.
