I agree, especially in the face of all the insiduous propaganda that
sneaks into every conceivable kind of sentimental humanitarianism.
There's this talk show we get with ex-Marine Montel Williams, and he's
got all these very nice women on his show, who are writing sweet
letters to the troops to support them. And this type of stuff is very
comforting and meaningful to those soldiers who are in mortal danger
all the time, we all know that. And they keep saying it's not a
political statement, only support, being supportive.
This is such a lie, because the political statement is being made very
explicitly. The letters are thank you letters. It's thank you for
keeping us safe, thank you for making sure we have our freedom at
home, and even thank you for making sure we are a united country!
Isn't that political? It's about oil, so the thank you could have been
say, thank you for trying, unsuccessfully so far, to keep the prices
down at the pump, at an astronomical cost to us taxpayers, an
unbelievable waste of lives, and untold suffering. But it has nothing
whatsoever to do with national security or terrorism or keeping
freedom or keeping the country united! They were saying the same thing
about Vietnam! Has anybody in America lost their freedom or become
less safe because the Vietnam war was lost? Is the US a less united
country because of that?
And this is the type of propaganda that's most common, when they say
it's not about politics but about supporting the troops, when it's so
humanitarian and loving and all that. But the best way to support the
troops is to take them out of their uniforms immediately and leave the
control of the Middle East to the people who live there. If they stop
messing with the Arabs, the most fanatical among them will stop
messing with the West.
