But here in this graveyard, it’s still no man’s land…

The countless white crosses
in mute witness stand
To man’s blind indiff’rence
to his fellow man
And to a whole generation That were butchered, and Damned.
Sacrifice is something that makes holy. Not “something that makes dead”.
The last surviving Canadian veteran of World War One died last night. He was 15 when he enlisted, and when the Canuckistan Army found out they didn’t send him into the meat grinder. That’s good.
There were millions of others not so lucky, many of them recruited using false ID and the Armies “unofficially” consented. Wink wink nudge nudge know what I mean, Ay? Make a (dead) man out of the lad.
Then the segue into the REAL meat of the story, the “shared sacrifice” of Canucks and Yanks to “make a better (Superior Culture) world for the Afghans”
Lyin’ sacks of shit, those propagandists.

Building a nation wasn’t the goal and they know it. Making revenge against a Boogie-Man phantom who might not be alive even. A Goldberg for our Big Brother to stand nobly against. Give us your freedoms and your servitude and your service or Le Tonton Osama will get you and blow up your buildings.

So they “baptize” sanctify this “sacrifice” that is really just another murder in the ongoing Mass Murder Spree by the Modern Great Powers, by equating a Canadian Soldier getting blown away by an IED in Afghanistan with the Millions who were caused to die in most unpleasant ways in “The Great War”. In America, where the Bigger is Always Better advertizing has smitten our land with its vile plague for a century now, “That’s Great!” has come to mean “Very Good” instead of “Very Large”.

While the Recruiters, here, in Britain, Canada, France, Germany, … they use the senseless slaughter of the “Great War”, a war which resolved absolutely NOTHING, besides getting rid of the Tsar, big deal, one ROYAL pain in the ass out of many… A war which nobody won. And we’re quite obviously still fighting… to justify throwing people at each other to smite each other with the sword, that they might die…

The only beneficiaries of it are the Profiteers, as usual. Not the Afghan people, not the Canadian people, not the American people.. But we’re told, again, that this is a “Noble Sacrifice”.

Screw that. Throw the Vanderbilts and the Bushes, the Rockefellers, the Filthy rich bastards, into a stadium, fill it with knee deep mud, and take their money, throw it into the mud, all the Krupp heirs and heiresses, the Scions of the Royal Houses, throw in some truly barbaric weapons, and have them kill Each Other for their foul bloodstained gold. Lock all the doors and build a steel and concrete wall around it so nobody has to see them doing it to Each Other for a pleasant change.
Then never let the survivors out. Force them to eat their gold. See how long they last.

That’s a fantasy though. So is the fantasy they sell to us at the cost of our blood.

The fantasy that it’s a fight for Freedom, for a Better Life for the Afghan and Iraqi and children from every other nation that’s being “liberated”

Liberated to become the next Ireland, the next Haiti, the next Ethiopia, to worship the “Better” god, capitalism, the “Freedom” to earn these wonderful things by working at extremely low wages for their New Masters.

This post started with a quotation from a song, “Green Fields o’ France”.
Aye, Willie McBride, I can’t help wonder why
and do those who lie here
know why did they die
Or did they believe, when ye answered that Call,
did ye really believe that this War would end Wars?
For the sorrow, the suff’ring the glory, the Pain,
The killin’ an’ Dyin’
was all done in vain
For Young Willie McBride
It all happened again
And again
and again
and again
and again.

Did they beat the drum slowly, did they play the fife lowly
did they sound the Death March
as they lowered ye down?
And did the band play “The Last Post” in chorus?
And did the pipes
Play “The Flow’rs o’ the Forest”?

    Can I ask u an honest question? Have you ever been to Iraq or Afghanistan? Or do you just get your info from fairy tales and books. How can u make an opinion about ANYTHING thousands of miles away by just looking at black and white on paper… thats exactly what it is. Black and white

    I see who makes money from it. Thieves like Bush and Cheney. Murderers fir Hire like Blackwater. People who baptize their hatred and their murders and conquests by saying they do it for God.

    If it were a Just cause the lies told to start and maintain the wars, wouldn’t have been necessary. I see, too, the “freedom” that’s supposed to be ours because of it. Freedom to be beaten in the streets, gassed, tasered, arrested without charge anytime the War-Monger pigs decide it’s in their interest.

    They lied about it on this end, they lied about it at the very start, why am I to believe that there’s any truth in anything that General Betrays-us or his Pig Comrades tell us?

    That the Billionaire draft dodging chickenhawks like Bush and Cheney and O’Reilly and Beck and Hannity? Their slightly less wealthy comrades, equally chickenhawk, like Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney? None of them every went to a war, yet they’re somehow qualified to tell us that it’s a good cause and how the Afghan and Iraqi people are better off or even more free. How would THEY know? The only times any of them ever go there is when they’re heavily guarded, get to talk to people who are “safe” and will only tell them what the Fox Ministry of Propaganda wants to hear.

    Some people LIKE killing and enjoy combat. They’re what you call “Sociopaths” and “Psychotics”.

    We hear their side too, and they post their comments here as well.

    So I’ll consider the source. Like I consider the source when Airmen and Soldiers, like my sergeant sister, boast of the War Crimes they’ve committed. “The pilot was feeling Sheep-ish, because he was having a Baaaa-d day” When the pilot had blown away a Kurdish shepherd along with his flock, because he couldn’t tell the difference between Sheep and Humans.

    That’s not a “fairy tale”.

    Too bad you can’t handle the truth being told.

    When I left the Air Force, I got the Air Force out of me.
    I learned in Basic Training to accept what I’m told, but guess what? After you get out, that belief in what you’re told erodes starting the very instant you walk out the front gate with your DD 214.

    When my cousin left the Army, he left packing a really unhealthy dose of Uranium Poisoning. Fox News, the Bush administration, the Army, all said that the DU couldn’t possibly be the reason. Until they said OOPS one day, put him in the hospital for an intensive decontamination routine for purging Uranium from his system. He’s 6″ 5″ and when he went in he was weighed at 98 pounds. Wasting away and the Army denied that he was even sick or that it was their doing.

    They lied. They lie about Agent Orange. Why would I trust them for any information? I’ll get my information from people who are or were There, and who I already know aren’t the Socio-Psychopathic types who enjoy murder, and enjoy the Power Trip that comes from conquest.
    And measure it by logic. Not believing the Paid Professional Liars from the Pentagon or Fox News.

    Good Day, sir.
