(some profanity) I’ve been sort of drifting lately, no real rhyme nor reason to the progression of life as I know it, and i find it to be an enjoyable interlude. Actually, me with purpose is probably the interlude, but I’ll tell my lies the way I like them. Other than raising the kiddoes I don’t get real worked up about anything, and the whole blog thing has been a real laughfest for me. The singlemindedness I see here is a wonderful counter to my chaotic nature, and there are just enough free will types to keep me from getting overly bored.
Ok, that was the extraneous bullshit paragraph. i’m thinking there will be several more of those, so if you seek content there’s *points* the door. I’m a bit of a history buff. Not one of those bookish coffee drinking stay up till three a.m running through the lists of civil war casualties types, but more one who likes to read about it, and visualize the things the way they must have been. In other words, it’s not clinical for me, rather more entertainment. I can get totally engrossed in how the people in stalingrad were living through those 900 + days of seige, but couldn’t care less how many boots the german army went through.
History has taught us all we will ever need to know about civilization, warfare, and the failings of reason. I’m almost certain that the only thing more ridiculous than the practice of warfare is the practice of humane warfare. Wars can be fought and won, and then if you are the winner you get to write about how just your cause was, and how brave your armies fought. If you practice humane warfare you never get to write those history books.
This is why America shouldn’t fight war. We, in essence, are pussies. Maybe not everybody, but certainly an overwhelming majority of society. We enter into wars with justification, and then spend our time trying to explain why we did it to the hand-wringing spectators and disloyal opposition. The current wars are a very good case study on what a bunch of shit for brains we elect for leaders, and what a bunch of assmunching dickheads are those who enjoy the fruits of liberty, but are never willing to let others succeed while paying the cost to keep them free.
The war on terror – that lunatic osama reared his ugly head again. Only for a minute on a 40 minute tape, but he did it. It could be from anywhere and any when, but that really doesn’t matter. what matters is because we spend all our time trying to please the weakest amongst us, the strong have failed in their mission. Like it or not, we should have gone in annihilated every living thing within 50 miles of that worthless cocksucker, because that is what he would do if the situations were reversed. We should have made sure there was a nice cozy spot in hell filled with his miserable carcass, and then we should have moved onto his followers, cutting a swath across the middleast and southwest asia that the world would never forget. Sounds deranged, but if you want him, its the only way to get him.
As far as all those who think the war in Iraq shouldn’t have happened… I am with you. However, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t justified. Just as Cuba had every justification to attack America when our government tried to have Castro assassinated, we had every right to attack Iraq when Saddam tried to have our president assassinated. Assassination has always been justification for wasr. I’m almost certain thats what started world war I. You might say well it would have been foolhardy for Cuba to attack us. So? War is always foolhardy. Tough shit says I.
Again though we did it wrong. We should have set every weapon we had on terminate, and turned the dump into a parking lot. Wars are not won humanely, and shouldn’t be fought that way. Instead we occupy the territory, and try to be humane, and just. We sit on our collective asses long enough to let the terrorists get their shit together, and our children start coming home in boxes. Not even a lot of boxes. Just a few, but its enough to turn this cowardly society of ours into a gelatinous mass of quivering outrage. the war between the states would have been still going on had it been fought this way, and seig heil would be in common usage in Iowa had the second world war been.
I am not a fan of war. I think in a lot of cases they exist as a form of violent population control. If you don’t think so work out a matrix as to what the world population would be today had WWII not happened. It’s kind of scary. I’d give you my numbers, but i suck at math so they are probably wrong. Starvation would be an issue, especially since in our incredibly enlightened society genetic engineering designed to increase food production is baaaaaaaad. diseases, overcrowding, unemployment, forced birth control…would all be issues. War’s only true good purpose is to prevent overcrowding…how sick is that?
anyway, this has been my manifesto on what a bunch of pussified anti- warmongers we are. It could go on ponderously for hours, but I’m bored with it, and was just heading into waste my breath mode…in closing I’d like to say that civilization is a myth. We wear the clothes, and invent the toys, but inside you and I will always be savages. It’s in our nature.
