Kids, some of you are going to die
With service comes sacrifice. All of you know this. You've made the most profound commitment a person can make. You've pledged to dedicate your life to your country. And perhaps give your life for it.
And some of you will.
I want you guys to understand, I will never hesitate to use force to protect our vital interests; oil, pipelines, heroin trafficking and last but not least the interests of Israel. Your killing and dying for Israel so that their youth won't have to is a tribute to our volunteer army.
To also sacrifice your life for the profits of the corporations of war is indeed a testimonial to the educational system you came from. For you to have absorbed the history of the victors and to do what you have been told without questioning means that we will never have to say we're sorry, only thank you.
We so much appreciate your dedication to the corporate media, Without following their lead many of you would not be here. You took their words of 9/11, al qaeda, bin laden, and the war on terror to heart and joined us in the permanent wars of hegemony. Our empire could not continue without you.
Most of you will never become rich from your service. But you can always take solace in the fact that you are such an important servant in maintaining the status quo. The bankers, the Federal Reserve and Wall Street know that without you that their continued dominance over our society would be much more difficult. The profits of peace must never supplant the profits of war. As you all know, that is the American way.
So these are the commitments I'm making to you. Because you've always taken care of America, America has to take care of you back. Remember, each of you who succumb to the wounds of battle will receive the best military burial that we decide you should have.
Again... thank you, thank you.....
"See you in Dover"
