DSC_0084School teachers-

School children are raised not to ask questions. The pledge of allegiance ritual emphasizes this.

Each November, school teachers across America host Veterans Day assemblies– and promote the idea that The Troops are in distant lands- fighting for American rights and freedoms- as if the US Armed Forces function as some sort of giant civil rights organization.

Love to see a student ask: If the wars aren’t won- how can they protect our freedom?

The Department of Defense track record goes back to 1949. How many US wars have been won since then?

Veterans Day was established in 1954, after Armistice Day was tossed out. How many US wars have been won since then?

How many US wars have been won since the first Armed Forces day was observed on May 20, 1950?

 

Newspeople-

Newspeople play the role of federal public affairs personnel. Zero questions asked about the decades of undeclared/unwon wars that came after the 1940s.

 

Politicians-

In the news: Fla. congresswoman visits deployed mothers in Afghanistan

The people who run both major parties & the conventions that nominate presidential candidates are OK with ongoing, undeclared/unwon wars overseas, the drug war racket, & a secretive, wasteful and ineffective Dept. of Homeland Security.

Ditto for the TV networks that host presidential debates & ask scripted questions of candidates.

The majority of voters will align with one of these two parties.
