Something to remember on Memorial Day

This is from the Facebook page of Mike Nelson. I can’t see it, but C^2 sent it along to me:

“…that government of the people, by the people, and for the people shall not perish from the earth.” 1863

“Remember the Maine” 1898

“Making the world safe for democracy” 1917

“…an unprovoked and dastardly attack” 1941

“Our purpose is peace. We have no military, political or territorial ambitions in the area.” 1964

“…babies in incubators” 1990

“They hate us for our freedom” 2001

“…weapons of mass destruction” 2003

This Memorial Day, let’s remember the LIES that led us to sacrifice the lives of our bravest young men and women. And don’t fall for the next one.

    Which reminds me of the White House claiming that Iraq War I was necessary to preserve democracy in Kuwait. Democracy? Kuwait? Even the lamestream media could figure out how stupid that one was. That one only lasted a week or so, then they found the incubator story.

    That is an excellent way to remember today. Nice of .gov to ‘give’ us a day off to ponder their treachery. Currently I’m worried about all the rhetoric about Iran. It looks like they are laying the groundwork for an October Surprise.

    Except that they kept finding tools and ingredients to make “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq – Uranium (yellow cake) being the most recent that I recall. Less often, since the retreat.

    I guess if the leftstream media doesn’t report it, it didn’t happen.

    Sometimes, people who call other people liars, are liars.

    ghw — links, please?

    BTW, I doubt you’ll find many people around here who rely on mainstream (and certainly not “leftstream”) sources for the main source of their news.

    Gummintal false flags have been standard operation for over a century, if not longer. It is not “conspiracy theory” to know so, and even Billy Occ’s could reckon that far.

    What is amazing is that gummint can suck in so many otherwise rational citizens when it comes to “patria.”

    Americans get a glazed look and nod in favor of whatever gummint says at the mention of that word. Sad.

    Claire, don’t hold your breath waiting for those links. You’d turn blue in relatively short order and we’d miss you.

    LOL Hobbit. I’d miss me, too. Or perhaps I wouldn’t notice. So thank you for caring. 🙂

    Thing that sticks out for me is the stark contrast between this blog and Massad Ayoob’s blog.

    It’s as if the lies don’t matter.
    It’s as if the “why” doesn’t matter.

    In other words, our country in a nutshell.

    “…an unprovoked and dastardly attack” 1941

    Actually went and toured the USS AZ on my day off yesterday…right, wrong, whatever…the names on the wall are still there. Seeing it all is a pretty powerful moment that a doccumentery or book just can’t give. Names of young devils and squids who were just like me, probably standing around on a slow day just discussing how to get home for christmas after spending all their money on booze, whores and tattoos when out of nowhere the shit hits the fan…really hits home.

    Just something I like to think about when I’m laying around with a hangover trying to convince myself that being an infantryman over here means anything anymore…
