Thread Godwin'd in the OP. That's gotta be a world record.
have anything to say about the subject or are you just going to go on about Godwin's Law?
Claiming we are no better then the Nazi's is ignorant to the extreme. But then any lie is acceptable to the Liberal. By the way Blu? Why didn't Obama and the Democrats stop these supposed immoral wars?
Who claimed that we are no better than the Nazis?
Another view of war that's still relevant:
"The choice facing the world is 'stark and dreadful and inescapable: shall we put an end to the human race; or shall mankind renounce war?'"
Albert Einstein and Bertrand Russell quoted in Noam Chomsky's Failed States copyright 2006 P.3
Ya Blu posted that for no reason right? Been here long enough to know what he is up too, maybe you should engage your brain?
He posted it to make a point, a valid one.
But no where did he say "Americans are no better than Nazis". If you have to make things up in order to argue a point, you might want to work on that a little.
So what was that point, genius?
If there was no profit in war after the first innocent life was taken, would war disappear like chattel slavery?
"WAR is a racket. It always has been.
"It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. 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.
A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people.
"Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about.
"It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many.
"Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.
"In the World War a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War.
"That many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows."
No spoils; No war?
