always envied the lucky stiffs that were born around1920 and got to make and live history.
WWII was that LAST war America fought for ANYONE'S Freedom.
Now it's fighting for New World Order, The UN, The Military Industrial Complex and the International Banking Cartel that funds and directs it.
What do we get to show for it? The Patriot Act and the NDAA.
USA NEVER fought for anyone's freedom. WW2 for US was a Godsend: it allowed US to dismantle British empire taking out geopolitical competitor; end depression and restore US economy by "helping" both sides; position US $ as a world currency thus building its own empire; and force the economies of West European countries in receipt of American "help" through "Marshal Plan" to work on US economy.
Yes, but for all those young men who were sent to die in God forsaken places, it was far from a Godsend. It was hell and all thanks to the power elite who were happy to sacrifice their lives.
For anyone to envy those terrible times, proves one is uninformed. And besides, we may be about to repeat those terrible times very soon. Many think we are living in historic times now as we witness the end of western civilization.
I totally agree with you. Those who sacrificed their lives deserve our profound gratitude.
My remark was concerning "US". "US" means -- "official state". And the conduct of official US was far from praiseworthy...
