“Anybody’s Son (or daughter) will do”: as we reflect on WAR & our loved ones again, a doco from 1983

If you think that those who foment wars care about your kids you birthed and raised, think again. As we approach another Anzac Day and we do indeed remember our loved ones (my Papa & all of his four brothers who went faithfully to WW2 ‘for their country’ and fortunately for us returned, unlike many families, torn apart forever) …. let’s spread the word that wars are only necessary for the bankers and the corporations that make the weapons. PEACE.  EnvirowatchRangitikei

***ORIGINAL UPLOAD BY RTAmerica*** Permission to repost granted. Aug 11, 2011 As the U.S. economy remains on a consistent downward spiral, one thing the U.S. Government is never shy to invest endless cash in is the Pentagon. Which – on its end — is pumping millions of dollars into luring in the young population of America into enrolling into the military. RT’s Anastasia Churkina looks at some of those mesmerizing techniques, and what kind of effect they have had on those fit to serve. http://www.ratical.org/ratville/CAH/w… “WAR is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small “inside” group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.” – Major General Smedley Butler (“War Is A Racket”) “I spent 33 years in active military service as a member of the Marine Corps. I served from 2nd Lt. to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism… Looking back, I might have given Al Capone a few hints….” – Major General Smedley Butler (“War Is A Racket”)
