Thread Name: BS: Militarism & the US culture of violence
Subject: RE: BS: Militarism & the US culture of violence
It was Eisenhower who coined the phrase "military-industrial complex" to warn us of just such an impending takeover of our government, Chief Chaos. Problems we face today are a result of no one listening to him.

You will never take up arms in MY name, Chief Chaos, no matter how much you like to use those military cliches.

WWI had nothing to do with my freedom. WWII had nothing to do with my freedom. Korea had nothing to do with my freedom. The Cold War had nothing to do with my freedom. Vietnam had nothing to do with my freedom. Gulf War I had nothing to do with my freedom. The invasion of Afghanistan had nothing to do with my freedom. The invasion and occupation of Iraq have nothing to do with my freedom.

In fact, unless Mexico or Canada is poised to invade the US, there isn't ANY military threat to my freedom.

Except from my own government's military.
