a casuality of the war is truth

Posted: June 1, 2007 in All, Blogroll, Controversy, Life, politics, War

Iraq veterans, men and women who have fought and lived in Iraq have a first hand account of what the war is all about.  Their opinion is the most creditable, over any other American when it comes to truth.  We must listen to them.  But the U.S. government has decided that the American people should not be allowed to hear their stories.  Why?  Because the Iraq veterans know first hand what the truth of this “War on Terror”, and the liberation of Iraq are.  The U.S. government wants us, the American people to remain uneducated about the truth.  They prefer that we go along with the governments version of what the truth is.  They will stop at nothing to make sure we never learn the truth.   The U.S. government is trying to sell us, the American people a “I do not recall agenda.”  But are we naive enough to buy it?  I pray to God that the majority of us, with a public education were taught enough to know when someone is going “waco” on us.  The control of the people are only obvious to those who are not being controlled.  The problem is, the majority of the people who are being controlled don’t and won’t even realize it until it is too late.  Just think about the techniques you use to control your children. Some kids are too smart to buy into it, while others are just so eager to please they go along with whatever, and yet, others just think about the rewards at the end, but not the method that was used to get there.  We need to look at this from a different perspective.  Are the so called rewards at the end worth what America will become for the next generation?

Please read below what the U.S. government is doing to keep you from hearing the truth.

Adam Kokesh and Liam Madden are active members of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW). Both are former Marine sergeants who served in Iraq and were later honorably discharged. Due to their outspoken opposition to the war, the Marine Corps is now formally threatening to revoke their discharges and retroactively change them to “other than honorable.” This is a new, unprecedented step the military feels is necessary in order to suppress a growing anti-war voice from within the military itself. We cannot allow this suppression of free speech to occur!

    Because Congress is too timid or co-opted, take your pick to stand up to a clueless President the war will end when the troops themselves rebell and muntiny against irrational and unreasonable demands and corrupt leadership. This will happen before the summer is over. Then and only then will the Congress’ hand be forced and the troops brought home. I’m a Vietnam War Vet. John

    MM – check my site – I speak of the postcards – I pray it helps.

    Have you been able to login and leave a comment on my tagboard yet? easy peasy really.

    Thanks to John Randall for his comment – stay safe sir and well…

    First, and most importantly, thank you John for your service. I appreciate, more than words can express all of the men and women who have sacrificed so much to serve our country. Secondly, I’d love to hear more about your thoughts on the troops themselves having the power to end this war. That thought never occured to me. How exactly would that happen?

    Thank you for taking the time to comment on this very important, and history changing subject.

    Hey Palestar, we were posting at the same time. Okay, I’ll come on over and take a look. Thanks for the heads up. No, I haven’t been able to sign in to your website. Whenever I visit another wordpress site, it has the info already filled in for me. I tried putting in the info you gave me, but it didn’t accept it. I’ve tried about 12 or 13 times. And I don’t get what’s up with the questions like, what color is the sun, what is on my desk, do you like chocolate? the questions change often. Have any more suggestions?

    That’s the gatekeeper program – designed to keep out spammers… hehehe.

    I will e-mail you the answers. that should fix it…

    This is a well-intended but totally one-sided viewpoint. What it wants one to believe is that there is some government conspiracy to withhold the truth, becauce the American public can’t handle the truth. BALONEY!! I might agree that the real truth is a little hard to find in the government statements about the war, but if you look even loosely, half of the statements (likely much more) are democrat statements. No worries, the republicans don’t do much better. It’s all emotion!! And why should statements about the war be truthful, when statements about any other topic in the news certainly aren’t (government source or otherwise). PEOPLE have a problem with the truth (cigarettes, gas price, age, marital status). There’s spin. There’s hype. There’s “literary license” (gimme a break!). No one tells the truth unless it suits them, and even then it is such a strange commodity we don’t recognize it. So, why should info about the war be any different? Let’s get real, folks.

    I found you through my cyber-pal SurfaceEarth (at wordpress.com) and am very glad I did. Your words are powerful and direct. Disinformation and censorship are a huge part of what’s going on (as well as what got us there without a well thought out plan in the first place) and I am amazed at how many people still don’t get that. (Luckily more and more do, I think.)

    I’m outraged that Iraqi veterans are being punished for exercising the very rights they fought to protect. When did we become a country that doesn’t allow people who put their lives on the line to freely speak their minds? Thank you for speaking out on such a reprehensible tactic.

    Hey Palestar, I was able to get 2 post through on your website, but it’s still saying 0 comments on the postcard post. do you see my comments?

  9. Manymeez says:

    Hey 2ponies! Thanks for stopping by and for the comment. It is my opinion that the government doesn’t with hold the truth because they feel we can’t handle it, they with hold the truth because they need to cover up the lies that they have spun and sold to the American people. I know it’s scary, it scares the shit out of me to think about my government keeping secrets and out and out lying to me…but it is a proven fact that this administration has done just that. And right now, it’s not just about a democrat and republican issue, because the democrats have not done a thing they promised they would do if they were elected. And worse yet, they are jumping on the same ship with the republicans, and feeding the same lies to us all. The sad thing is, our government is for sell, and whoever has the top dollar to invest owns the government. It’s always about money. I do agree with you, no one in government tells the truth unless it suits them or their backers.

    Ronnie Ann, no matter how you found me, I’m glad you did. Thanks for stopping by, and taking the time to make a comment. — I think the plan to get us into Iraq was planned out, and the planning took a very long time. But the reason’s we were given for going in, are not the reasons we were told. We were lied to and mislead by a government who has an agenda that it still hasn’t shared with the American people. But once we get to the bottom of it all, we will find an administration more corrupt than the Nixon administration. The question is, will we get to the bottom before it’s too late? When ever anyone starts to get close to what that truth might be, the government goes to great lengths to shut them up. What they don’t seem to understand is, the truth always comes out…eventually.

    Yes MM I did finally see them – first timers go thru moderation – again avoidung spammers – check it out again – there is an update – sending postcards on the 30th of June 2007 to arrive around the 4th of July – as Beth suggested – check it out you will see – read the comments – 😆 thanks for the visit and the comments? Stay safe and well.

    Hi Manymeez! Thanks for the kind words. As someone who makes a living helping create implementable plans, I agree that the Bush administration had long-time plans to get us into Iraq, they just didn’t have well-crafted plans that, once in there, took into account the reality of the situation – or how to get us out of there. And yes…we are in total agreement about how much effort they put into counter-transparency planning. Sigh. I look forward to the day when the truth does come out. I only pray it’s sooner rather than later. Be well.

    passion led us into this war. With the overwhelming support of those who disagreed with me. Reasonable discourse isn’t going to get us out. Maybe next time vengeance won’t hold sway, but I doubt it
