The courage to ask, "Why did they fall?"

Post by ziggy on Mon May 27, 2013 10:00 am

As we decorate the graves on Memorial Day of those who fell in battle, I hope we have the courage to ask, why they fell!? Further, I pray that as we come to understand the history of lies and fabricated pretexts that our political leaders fed us to rationalize their wars, we will rise up to give birth to a genuine people’s democracy based on justice, honesty and respect for all life.

If you do not understand why soldiers fell in defense of their country, then the next time a murderer attempts to break into your house and kill you and your family, don't call the police. Negotiate with the murderer. Give him flowers. Be nice to him. See who falls.

Now there is a big difference between protecting your own country ..... and ..... sending troops and arms into another country to aid and abet a change in the political/religious culture to one which you agree with.
