You don't want to hear it.....


“All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.”

“Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear”

George Orwell


Army Spc. Corey Kowall, 20, of Murfreesboro TN was killed in a crash after serving in Afghanistan for nearly five weeks.

No, you don't want to hear it.

This young man was not a hero. It was not sacrifice for our country or our freedoms. It was nothing but a wasted life for lies.


You don't want to hear it.
"War is a racket." 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.” U.S. General Smedley Butler....From the bankers to the war machine contractors to the pentagon death merchants to the puppet politicians, only a small group benefits from wars. Profit made from the lives of youth who are too indoctrinated to make responsible decisions.

You don't want to hear "What is the price for your child's life?"
No, seriously, how much would you charge me to let me kill your kid? I'll make up a whole batch of comfortable lies about it so you can assuage your guilt when your kid comes home in a cheap box with a cheaper flag draped over it, but, c'mon, let's talk money here. How much?

No?

Ummm, okay, how much will you charge me to let someone else's kids get killed? Better deal, huh? You don't have to know them, and I'll try to make sure you don't have to see them.

I know the above sounds absurd, but this deal has indeed been made. In exchange for money, a certain group of people have agreed to let your kids be killed. That group is the United States Congress. And for the last several years, many of them have been accepting money from AIPAC, a supposed lobbying group that stands exposed as a spy operation for a foreign government, in order to promote that foreign government's agenda, which includes war in the Mideast, waged against that foreign government's enemies.

This selling of America's children to a foreign government to be that government's mercenaries has to rank as the greatest single betrayal of a people by their government in all of history. {more}

You certainly don't want to hear this.
Parents, if your child is dead in war, perhaps you are the one that failed. You failed to stop them from joining the military. You failed to distinguish truth from lies and to pass life saving knowledge to them.
You accepted what your 'leaders and teachers and preachers' said and you didn't apply critical thinking to their words. You followed, you failed.

You still don't hear.
More troops is the answer... but Gen.McChrystal warns that in the short run, it "is realistic to expect that Afghan and coalition casualties will increase."

Those casualties will be your son or daughter. You can wave the flag, cry when they die and deceive yourself into thinking that it was worth it. Is it?

Corey Kowall will be buried soon. Words of his praise and the sorrow will soon vanish even quicker than his short life did. His dreams and potential become a statistic, a notation in the book of the dead.

The war profiteers are not sentimental. Their blood stained hands will take the money and once again ask for another to take Corey's place.

And we as a nation will let them.....and the lies will continue....because we do not hear.

  2. Without willing participants called soldiers then there would be no war....at least not for the resisting soldier.

    Soldiers are doing the killing and deserve 100% of the blame. Shame on them for executing the commands of politicos to cowardly to do the deed themselves.

    US soldiers are the bad guys...shame!

  3. I will NOT accept that this guy died in vain!

    "For how can man die better
    Than in facing fearful odds
    For the ashes of his fathers
    And the temples of his gods?"

  4. All wars would end immediately if the kids of those that declare the war had to serve on the front lines. Send in the politicians sons and daughters to war. Send in their family and there would be peace in this god forsaken country. The country where the politicians spend out money without out approval,line their own pockets, make prayers a criminal offense, and represent foreign countries interests over our own. www.whatreallyhappened.com

  6. ONLY A UNITED JEFFERSONIAN-SOCIALIST FRONT RIGHT NOW CAN SAVE THE U.S.A FROM ISRAEL AND FROM CAPITALISM !!

    i think that the middle-class of USA is blocking a change. The middle-classes of USA don't want USA to get economically better. The middle-classes of USA conspire to support the bankruptcy of the United States by voting every 4 years for Democrats and Republicans.

    What we need is a workers-council state in USA. A government ruled by workers while at the same time on the economic side: the mega corporations of USA like Wal-Mart, Pepsi, Coca Cola, Mcdonalds, General Electric, etc. owned by workers, thru the system of "workers control of production" (Workers management/workers-ownership), or "Workers stock ownership" however you want to label it.

    "The dictatorship of the proletariat is a stubborn struggle, bloody and bloodless, violent and peaceful, military and economic, educational and administrative against the forces and traditions of the old society." -Lenin

    The dictatorship of the proletariat is the instrument of the proletarian revolution, its organ, its most important mainstay, brought into being for the purpose of, firstly, crushing the resistance of the overthrown exploiters and consolidating the achievements of the proletarian revolution, and secondly, carrying the revolution to the complete victory of socialism

    The dictatorship of the proletariat arises not on the basis of the bourgeois order, but in the process of the breaking up of this order, after the overthrow of the bourgeoisie, in the process of the expropriation of the landlords and capitalists, in the process of the socialisation of the principal instruments and means of production, in the process of violent proletarian revolution

    Under capitalism the exploited masses do not, nor can they ever, really participate in governing the country, if for no other reason than that, even under the most democratic regime, under conditions of capitalism, governments are not set up by the people but by the Rothschilds and Stinneses, the Rockefellers and Morgans.

    Democracy under capitalism is a dictatorship really, it is a dictatorship of the exploiting minority, based on the restriction of the rights of exploited majority and directed against this majority.

    Only under a socialist system there are real liberties for the exploited and real participation of the workers in governing the country possible. Under socialism, democracy is workers democracy, the democracy of the exploited majority, based on the restriction of the rights of the exploiting rich minority and directed against this minority.

    The dictatorship of the proletariat cannot arise as the result of the peaceful development of bourgeois society and of bourgeois democracy; it can arise only as the result of the smashing of the bourgeois state machine, the bourgeois army, the bourgeois bureaucratic apparatus, the bourgeois police.

    Therefore, Lenin is very right in saying: "The proletarian revolution is impossible without the forcible destruction of the bourgeois state machine and the substitution for it of a new one" (see Vol. XXIII, P. 342)

    What we need is workers-power, soviet power as the state form of the dictatorship of the proletariat. The victory of the dictatorship of the proletariat signifies the suppression of the bourgeoisie, the smashing of the bourgeois state machine and the substitution of proletarian democracy for bourgeois democracy

    Let other people you know learn about socialism! Spread the word... the more people who know the truth, the greater the force against the capitalist system! Resistance forever!

  7. The socialist troll is at it again; don't you remember the NAZI party was the National Socialist Party? Of course that means socialism = fascism. Fark off, buddy. If you haven't noticed, nobody likes you.

  8. "I think the level of casualties is secondary. I mean, it may sound like an odd thing to say, but all the great scholars who have studied American character have come to the conclusion that we are a warlike people and that we love war. . . . I don't think casualties are going to be the issue. " -- Michael Ledeen AEI Breakfast March 27, 2003

    Hate to admit it, but he's right.

    The oath they take and which I took was to defend the Constitution, not the profits of Wall Street nor to keep Apartheid Israel happy.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm tired of people saying they took the oath to defend the Constitution. Then WTF haven't you been defending it against the Bushes and Obamas who have been shredding it? Bush is reported to have said it was 'just a goddam piece of paper'.

    It seems to me the oath you take is just pious words uttered with no understanding of its meaning or gravity.

    G0 defend the Constitution or stop repeating it parrot fashion as if you've done some great deed.

    Why Mr. Cheney, you getting back out in society?
    How's that PR campaign to dodge getting indicted for your war crimes going?

    Was my almost two years of service to my country a 'great deed?' I don't think so, but maybe I'm wrong.

    What branch of service did you do your time to America in?

  12. "It is altogether fitting and proper to die for one's country!"

    If only this were true. But they're not. They're dying for corporate interests. They're dying for Zionist Israel. They're dying for LIES! But I don't think that (for the most part) the American Soldier is The Bad Guy. They are ignorant, willfully kept so by the American Educational Community and their government. Dangerous, deadly, but the individuals are to be pitied more than censured.

  13. The American kids fighting and dying to keep Wall Street profits high and Israel a state for racists and bigots aren't to be blamed.

    When a kid gets out of high school, he's just been thru 12 years of brainwashing, being taught about how America is always the 'good guys,' going around the world to bring democracy... at the point of a gun.

    They're brainwashed about capitalism, while learning little or nothing about who really controls the purse strings, the Fed.

    Add in mandatory Holocaust™ training, now offical policy in many states and you've got a duped kid who thinks he's fighting for 'God, Mom and Apple Pie' when nothing could be further from the truth.

    During the Vietnam War, we were fighting 'godless' commies who wanted to come over here and put us under the hammer and sickle, hell, I even fell for that BS.

    Now we're being told that demon worshipping 'Muzzies' want to come over here and put us under a Caliphate.

    Another load of BULLSHIT.

    Those kids are fighting and dying for Wall Street and Israel, not patriotism, but they don't know any better, thanks to our dumbed down educational system.

  14. PAT: IF YOU THINK SOCIALISM IS EVIL, WHAT IDEOLOGY DO YOU PROPOSE FOR USA? I DON'T HAVE LOTS OF TIME TO DEBATE ABOUT CAPITALISM AND SOCIALISM RIGHT NOW. BUT YOU CAN ARGUE AS MUCH AS YOU WANT, IT WILL REALLY MAKE NO DIFFERENCE !!

    YOU CAN KEEP SUPPORTING THE CAPITALIST SYSTEM BY SUPPORTING LIBERTARIANISM WHICH IS REALLY CAPITALISM.

    I DON'T CARE, IT WILL MAKE NO DIFFERENCE REALLY. THIS IS A FREE WORLD, AND I WONT' GET MAD IF YOU ARE A LIBERTARIAN !!

    I RESPECT EACH INDIVIDUAL'S RELIGION, SEX AND FOOD-TASTES AND PERSONAL CHOICES !!

    BUT I AM NOT LYING TO YOU, NOBODY IS PAYING ME TO PREACH SOCIALIST KNOWLEDGE TO PEOPLE.

    I AM JUST TRYING AS HARD AS I CAN TO SAVE U.S.A. AND THE WORLD !!

    BUT FROM MY PERSONAL INVESTIGATION, READING MATERIAL OF PHILOSOPHY, HISTORY, AND OBSERVING OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE VENEZUELA, BOLIVIA, CUBA, ECUADOR. THE BEST IDEOLOGY TO FIGHT THE NEW WORLD ORDER AND THE GLOBAL ELITE FASCISTS IS SOCIALISM !!

    THERE IS REALLY NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE TO DEFFEND THE POOR EXPLOITED MAJORITY OF PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD !!

    THERE IS NO OTHER IDEOLOGY THAT CAN CURE HUNGER, STARVATION, WOMEN, BLACK, GAYS AND GENERAL OPPRESSION AND ABUSES LIKE SOCIALISM !!

    SO TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT: SOCIALISM IS THE REAL DEAL !!

  15. Well, I've been saying that since bush started his 'wars for lies and israel' campaign back in 2003. Every soldier killed since bush took office has died for LIES and ISRAEL. Oh! and OIL. 911 was an inside job. The writing's on the wall folks. There is only ONE party in this country, the Zionista party. And if you don't like, try voting. Hah! Lotta good it'll do.

    What this country needs is a second party. Failing that, a revolution.

    Poor dupes will get killed thinking they were serving their country. They're only serving the elite agenda. They're actually destroying the US by enlisting.

    AWOL is patriotic! Would you ever have thought that statement would be true?

    ReplyDelete
  16. AWOL has been patriotic since the Vietnam war. I knew several who took that route rather than be deployed. They survived it well with none of the lingering after effects that almost all those who went to 'nam experienced.

    Any soldier who wakes up and refuses to continue with the lies has my respect.

  18. "Only under a socialist system there are real liberties for the exploited and real participation of the workers in governing the country possible."
    Just one example of the "Robin Hood" syndrome you suffer from. Also you forget that the government of this country was and is supposed to be an agreement between the states; if our governors had any sacks they would order their National Guard back home, start printing their own money and succeed from "the union" that has so callously f-ed the world up.

  19. How dare you use the death of my Cousin Corey to make political statements. SHAME ON YOU! Your liberal ways of thinking are completely warped. I compare you to the loons that run Iran and North Korea. Go ahead and bury your head in the sand while these terrorists plot against our country. Typical liberal. It was because of your crony (Bill Clinton) that Osama Bin Laden got away. It is because of YOU that we must give terrorists rights while they kill our soldiers. There is no use reasoning with you, why should I waste my time. You should be shipped out of this country, all of you that have shamed my family members death.

  21. You're no better than the people that put those soldiers to war. If anything, respect another person's life. It's disrespectful to just use Corey as a political statement for your position. And to say he wasn't a hero? Who are you to judge the worth of Corey's life? Wow, man. Shame on you..
