The U.S. Military

--------

{Politics.772.2}: T.J. McGovern {tj2} Sun, 27 Jan 2008 11:02:50 EST (HTML)

You know my stand on that, Barry.

I want a strictly defensive military, and our occupying forces all over the world brought home.

But unfortunately, we have become a nation dependent on war to keep our economy afloat. Human life, especially that of people who are different, is inconsequential to the pursuit of riches for a small segment of population. The war machine's appetite is insatiable, as is the greed of it's operators.

If we redirected our efforts from the expansion of the empire to research and development of new energy sources, new methods of transportation and the fight against disease, we could develop new technologies that would make us a real world leader instead of just barbarian conquerors. But this has all been said before, much more eloquently than I can.

Human evolution has a long way to go before we will be able to give up our wars. The few of us who see the futility in it all are a barrier to profits for the many for whom human life is of no consequence, and will not likely see our dreams realized.
