All honor to those who served; none to those who lied us into wars we had no business in.

"wars we had no business in."

In other words, EVERY war of the 20th and 21st century.

My sympathies for all those who were lied or conscripted into fighting for the profits of their corporate Masters. I'm sorry for their pain, and even more sorry for their betrayal - because, let's face it, there has been no semblance of "honor" in any of America's assorted wars and police-actions for more than a century, and the whole world knows it.

But exactly what good does it do to lie to them some more, and pretend that their "service" and "sacrifice" was for "freedom" or "security" whatever? It wasn't; it was for nothing but to line the pockets of the robber barons, with the result that we're all a lot LESS free and secure.

I say, all honor to the people who have been working for PEACE all this time, against a constant barrage of sanctimonious war-mongering bullshit. The only honorable thing about any war is its end.

To children ardent for some desperate glory,

Pro patria mori
