The Cost of War

Here is the Matthew Hoh article referenced in the above piece.

America and Americans are fed-up with bloodshed and pissing away cash in the sand of the Middle East with the manufacturing profits of these wars ending up in Corrupt Communist Corporations and we know that there is a better way. The Europeans are in the same place as we and they see and understand war on an intimate level as no American is able unless you had family in the World Trade Towers or lived and worked in NYC during this act of terrorism.

WITHDRAW ALL OUR TROOPS NOW.  Immediate withdraw of all UN, NATO and American troops within 30 days sends a clear message that the war is changing. It requires very few American citizens, intelligence people on the ground, to know beyond a shadow of doubt where “problem areas” are within Afghanistan or Iraq.

There is no reason to or for spilling the blood of our best and brightest in the sands. Dumb and Dumber, Bush and Cheney, involved us in these wars and deserve to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for their lies, corruption and fraud in involving the United States in these Wars.  They deserve to be tried as war criminals for the torture of prisoners.  The murder of American Citizens is directly related to their actions and those charges should be included as well.  The terrorist attack on The United States of America is a direct result of failed US diplomatic policy in support of despots, corrupt leaders and begins from the founding of the State of Israel but Dumb and Dumber desired to feed the wealthy of the US and perpetrated this fraud against the Citizens of the United States of America.  If you are going to tell a lie, make it a big one.  That certainly applies here.

President Barack H Obama is in a very difficult position in making effective choice in these wars created by Dumb and Dumber plus dealing with the economic disaster of Dumb and Dumber opening the US Treasury to the Corporate Communists who put them in office and kept them in office. The only fiscally responsible action is to withdraw now with the support of the US Citizens in this action and the caveat of a new policy of scorched-earth locked firmly in place.  Swift and certain retribution is a Global policy that will work now with UN involvement.

It is only because they (Bush and Cheney) are viewed as members of “the ruling class” combined with the knowledge that accountability will be forever a portion of the American Landscape in politics were this to happen, that prevents their trials and convictions. The purchased politicians on Capital Hill* know this with certainty and that’s the reason the trial of these war criminals has not occurred.  It is in the best interest of the bank accounts of the politicians and that’s the bottom line that Americans have been brought to see by what Washington, DC has done as written in history now.

We’ve spent our children’s futures in development and construction of “smart” armaments and the platforms to make use of them so let’s just use them. We have the intelligence ability to know, within a reasonable doubt, where the problem areas are within these regions.  It is very easy to move this information through the UN Security Council and obtain endorsement prior to action.  We are able to sit in our ships off-shore and target, with smart bombs, the villages and cities that are responsible for producing the terrorists and where these terrorists are provided shelter.  And let’s not forget who is funding them either.  Let’s just bomb them off the face of the earth.

As an International effort at control of terrorist activities this policy is able to enjoy universal application. It makes no difference what sovereign nation these “terrorist training camps” and community support centers are contained within.  The populations of innocent civilians who provide shelter to the individuals responsible for “acts of terrorism” are guilty by association.  Bomb them out of existence.  If it’s the War on Drugs in Afghanistan then napalm the poppy fields and be done with it.  Sure, swift and irrefutable evidence that the Western world is no longer tolerating the terrorist with actions like these will put an end to the issue.  Reduced to rubble is a position that Afghani, Iraqis, Iranians, Israelis and anyone else is able to comprehend upon viewing the ashes.  Will they, the natives, view their Al-Qaeda, Taliban or Hamaas as heroes when the ruins of life and living are all they see?

The clearly stated idea that American and UN Troops on the ground are able to conduct one-on-one diplomacy to win wars is utter nonsense and pure drivel. What diplomacy when the man has a gun in your face at your door?  Al Qaeda, the US created and armed Taliban, Hamaas or any other terrorist group employs suicide bomber diplomacy and that defines clearly the stage upon which we must act to stop this insanity now.  There is nothing humane in the actions of suicide bombers, bombers in general and the response and retribution must be swift and sure.

In Afghanistan we are able to clearly identify the problem areas, the towns and valleys where the Taliban and Al Qaeda are maintaining strongholds. Remove our troops and just bomb these locations into rubble, bomb them back to the stone age and leave them to recover to their 16th century life style as they may desire but get the job done now very quickly, efficiently and without great risk of American or UN lives.  It requires very few troops and a minimal amount of funding to wage this war on the terms defined by Al-Qaeda, the Taliban or Hamaas.  Economic sanctions have no effect in these areas of the globe.

In Iraq we know the towns and villages where the opposition is finding aid and comfort so we just bomb them into rubble and have the job done. Why should our sons and daughters be subject to being shot at by theology?  From a safe distance we are able to solve “the problem” and save American lives.

In Iran we know where the uranium enrichment facilities are located and where the nuclear reactors are that Iran has constructed. We bomb them into oblivion and ignore the diplomacy that Iranians hold in contempt.  It is clear that the Iranian government is unable to maintain an honest 21st century position so a few well placed bombs will put them back into the 16th century where they enjoy living. With all due respect to the Iranian population the reality is that they have tolerated an illegitimate government (something America knows about after 8 years of Dumb and Dumber) and taking these kinds of actions is sure and swift resolution to the corruption they are unable to overcome.

Let’s take, for instance, the West Bank territories in Israel. We know that the West Bank Settlements of the Israeli’s manufacture are a stumbling block to peace with the Palestinians.  We and the International community simply announce that on November 15, 2009 at high noon Jerusalem time that we are bombing these settlements out of existence and then do it.  This announcement is the compassionate notice to the settlers to vacate and the assets that are in question are destroyed, the occupation by Israeli settlers is stopped.  The problem is settled and the Israelis then are back at the negotiating table to get the issues solved once and for all time.  We stop all foreign aid to the Israelis and insist that they behave as human rather than the terrorist they demonstrate. Equality for all is an American trademark.

You think this to be a “harsh, without compassion or unrealistic” method of resolution?

I ask you what is compassionate about sending our sons and daughters into Wars based on lies, fraud and the desire of the rich to get richer?

I ask you what is compassionate about land mines, bombing in market places, mosques and busses?

I ask you what is compassionate about being an occupying force in any foreign nation?

What is compassionate in Dumb and Dumber’s Crusades?

It is a much more compassionate action to reduce “the enemy” and their supporting populations to a crater on the face of the Earth than it is to spill the blood of our sons and daughters in this protracted lie of War from some “moral” high ground.

THERE IS NO MORAL HIGH GROUND FOR WAR!

Be it the War on Drugs in the USA, the longest running war in United States history.

Be it the War in Afghanistan or Iraq based on lies, fraud, the corruption and greed of Bush and Cheney and their economic war machine.

Be it the War on the Middle Class in America by Corporate Communists and Government Corruption as seen in Bernanke, Paulson, Geithner and the largest transfer of wealth in history.

The dangers in these kinds of actions, in adopting this kind of policy is, of course, the “collateral damage” of innocent civilians, the infrastructure of the nations attacked and the global addiction to oil.  The economic reality is that Halliburton, Blackwater and hundreds of Government Contractors traced back to a very few Corporate Communists in the USA will no longer be enriched by war.  That is the end result.

The difference that this Scorched-Earth policy represents is that our military is home in the USA and we are able to turn the obscene government spending on War into a positive investment into America for a change.

The difference is that we may begin to care for Americans now and have the ability to buy back the USA from China where Dumb and Dumber and the Corporate Communists have sold us.

The difference that this Scorched-Earth policy represents is fighting terrorism with terrorism on a level that any nation involved in these kinds of activity will come to understand beyond a shadow of a doubt.

The difference is that America will have the ability to face the real Economic War at home and restore freedom, liberty and individual prosperity in this nation first.

Here is a clip from history where the Liar in Chief, Dumb as a Box of Rocks George W Bush made his declaration of “Winning the War in Iraq” on May 1, 2003 and we are still there.
