War is Murder

You wanna sit on your high horse and bitch to me that abortion is baby killing when you are HAPPY to send grown ass humans to another country with PERMISSION TO MURDER OTHERS?

I am on a very lonely mountaintop with my views on this one.  I am not sure how many of us are out there, but it’s few and far between.  Most people support the murder of “terrorists”, just as they support the murder of “infidels”.  Well, guess what?

FUCK YOU ALL!

Murder is murder….whether it’s done on death row or in war or in cold-blood to 2 cops sitting in a car, eating their foodstuffs.

I don’t get it.  I don’t how we can separate and compartmentalize “murder” into “good murder” and “naughty murder”, whereas the latter gets you put into prison and might get you murdered (depending on state laws and how heinous your crime was), and the first wins you medals and shit.

WHAT IS THAT???!!!
Does this view make me UN-MERICAN?  Well, so be it.  Our fucking fucked up country does a WHOLE LOT OF SHIT the world hates us for.  AND we do things TO OUR OWN PEOPLE that we hate our own government for.

People are starving around the world, yet we bitch about a movie not being released because we thought Kim Dong Un said so.  Oh yes, because that’s some first world problem bullshit right there.

And we think murder is something allocated only to the people who do it because someone made them mad or hate crimes (looking at YOU George Zimmerman!!).  YET if someone murders someone because, oh, let’s say they invaded my neighbor’s yard by planting something on their land, they will go to jail.  But if North Vietnam wants to take over South Vietnam, we go and “fight the good fight”.  Which ultimately means murder.

I mean, soldiers are NOT trained to ask nicely or make friends with their enemies.  They are trained murderers.  Not all kill….a lot don’t.  My dad didn’t.  But my stepdad did.  And it haunted him for the rest of his life.  And when he was in a bind in real life back home, he did it again…I mean, once you’ve killed some Viet congs, killing some idiot in the streets isn’t such a reach anymore, right?  That black and white area of right and wrong becomes extremely grey, so much so, it can blind you.  Especially when you are desperate.

I am not a fan of murder.  Even if we think it’s the only answer, as in war.  Killing is NOT okay.  I can’t FATHOM how some of these people call themselves Christians where IN THEIR HOLY BOOK states thou shalt not murder, yet they support war or commit it.  Will I blame the soldiers?  No.  Why?  Because just as I don’t blame spankers who spank their kids for spanking, I do not blame soldiers for commit acts of murder.  It’s not their fault.  I mean, when it comes right down to it, it is, but they are just products of the world they were raised in.

We need change.  At the deepest level possible.

Instead of war, or at least until we can stop war, we need to eliminate the reasons for war.

  1. We need to give EVERYONE clean water and enough food to eat (our own citizens and the rest of the world).
  2. Then we need to EDUCATE every single person on this Earth (except those who are living in the jungle who don’t need Western influence on them and live peacefully without us–unless they wanted it).
  3. Give them all internet.
  4. With education (all forms, not just American style schooling–which is a total failure, in my opinion), they can build their worlds as they see fit.  They can overthrow their own government (which yes, will probably induce more killing, but babysteps people….).  They can grow businesses online and off.
  5. Especially educating women.  When women are educated, they can feed their families with or WITHOUT men.
  6. Slowly, little by little, we can become a smarter race of beings and move into areas that will EXPAND humanity, rather than diminishing it, as war does.

This would take a long time and yet, people would die over it.  And it will be expensive.  BUT think how much war costs….and what does war do?  Stop it for a moment?  Whatever it is that people are doing?  But with education, that is LONG lasting and will eventually STOP completely what is wrong with the world.  Will it create new problems?  Sure.  Of course.

But maybe at least war could stop.  Pirating could stop.  Senseless murders over lack of basic needs could stop.

Nothing is 100% fixable, but humanity MUST start moving a direction that will CURE the world of its ailments, rather than creating new ones.

But for now, here I’ll sit, on top of my lonely mountain….wishing for change.  Hopefully one day helping to create it.  And until that happens, just blogging about my crazy ideas on this blog.

I will leave you with these immortal words:

“War… Huh… Yeah!
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Uhuh… uhuh…!

War… Huh… Yeah!
What it is good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Say it again y’all
War… Huh… Look out!
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Listen to me – AAH!
War I despise
‘Cause it means destruction of innocent lives
War means tears in thousands of mothers’ eyes
When their sons go out to fight and lose their lives

I said:
War… Huh… Good God y’all!
What it is good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Say it again
(War… Huh!) Lord, Lord, Lord…
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Listen to me:

(War) It ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
(War) Friend only to the undertaker
War is the enemy of all mankind
The thought of war blows my mind
War has caused unrest within the younger generations
Induction then destruction
Who wants to die?

AAH! War… Huh… Good God y’all!
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Say it, say it, say it!
War… Huh…! (Uhuh… Yeah… Huh!)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Listen to me:

(War) It ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
(War) Got one friend, thats the undertaker
War has shattered many young men’s dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean
Life is but too surely precious, to spend fighting wars each day
War can’t give life, it can only take it away!

AAH! War… Huh… Good God y’all!
What it is a good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Say it again
War… Huh… Lord, Lord, Lord…
What it is a good for?
Absolutely nothing!
Listen to me:

(War) It ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
(War) Friend only to the undertaker
Peace, love and understanding tell me,
is there a place for these today?
They say we must fight to keep our freedom,
but Lord knows there’s got to be a better way

War… Huh… Good God y’all!
What is it good for?
You tell me!
Say it, say it, say it, say it!
War… Good God now… Huh!
What is it good for?
Stand up and shout it! (Nothing!)”
