    America: Addicted to War

    It’s been that way from inception. America’s history reflects violence. It’s blood-drenched. It glorifies war. It does so in the name of peace.
    America believes war is peace. It’s part of the national culture. Eventually it’s self-destructive. Today’s super-weapons make the unthinkable possible.
    Hyman Rickover knew. He knew decades ago. He founded America’s nuclear navy. In 1982, he told Congress:
    “I do not believe that nuclear power is worth it if it creates radiation.” Then you might ask me why do I have nuclear powered ships?”
    “That is a necessary evil. I would sink them all. I am not proud of the part I played in it. I did it because it was necessary for the safety of this country.”
    That’s why I am such a great exponent of stopping this whole nonsense of war. Unfortunately limits – attempts to limit war have always failed.”
    “The lesson of history is when a war starts every nation will ultimately use whatever weapon it has available.”
    “Every time you produce radiation, you produce something that has a certain half-life, in some cases for billions of years.”
    “I think the human race is going to wreck itself, and it is important that we get control of this horrible force and try to eliminate it.”
    In his Der Ring des Nibelungen operas (the Ring), Richard Wagner portrayed his apocalyptic version. He did so musically. Gotterdammerung (Twilight of the Gods) prophesied the end of the world.
    Einstein feared it. He didn’t know what WW III weapons would be used. He said “World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
    Bertrand Russell was an Einstein contemporary. He knew. He warned. No one listened. He asked:
    “Shall we put an end to the human race, or shall mankind renounce war.” It’s the only way to live in peace. The alternative is annihilation.

    The choice is clear. The wrong one assures disaster. America’s heading humanity toward it. A slow-motion train wreck looms. The big one. There’s no second chance. There’s no coming back.
    Historian Harry Elmer Barnes (1889 – 1968) once said:
    “If trends continue as they have during the last fifteen years, we shall soon reach this point of no return, and can only anticipate interminable wars, disguised as noble gestures for peace.”
    Historian Arnold Toynbee worried about WW III. Only pigmies in remote jungles, apes and ants might be left to carry on “the cultural traditions of mankind,” he said.
    According to HG Wells:
    “If we don’t end war, war will end us.”
    Mushroom shaped cloud finality threatens humanity. Enough of them cause nuclear winter. They block out sun for years. Doing so ends life on earth. It’s possible. It’s chilling. It’s not science fiction. It’s real. It bears repeating. There’s no coming back.
    America wages permanent wars. It does so against enemies it creates. During the Cold War, Active Defense and AirLand Battle prepared strategies for how America would fight.
    Soviet Russia was targeted. Today’s it’s modern day Russia. It’s China. AirSea Battle targets both countries.

    The author is obviously a moronic puke. From his perspective, it sounds like we are nuking the planet.

    At one time people appreciated it when we were the policemen of the world. That time has past. In too many situations today, the world will be a better place is we stay out of the conflicts and let people just kill each other. Too many people have come to expect us to provide either military or monetary support to bail them out of problems that they create. In most cases, we need to stop providing both.

    I don't agree with Ron Paul about everything, but one thing he is right about is that we need to stop providing support for anyone who does not share our values. Today, that would be the overwhelming majority of countries to which we provide aid. Cut off the gravy train and let them bitch about that.

    I have not heard the statistics for 2012, but I read that in 2011 there were 73 armed conflicts in the world. 70 had Muslims on one or both sides.

    I put this article because there is something to reform about the involvement of our countries in the world that really could be one day out of control in a escalating matter that may come from anywhere.

    One thing that could degenerated in total annihilation path are the preventive nuclear strikes and that are in US plans. I think people need to deeply rethink about that, because it could end badly the human race.

    I agree with you TopDogger, that Ron Paul ping pointed something important that we shouldn't help countries that do not share our values.

    So why the Western countries are supporting murderers dictators? I believe that taking blind eyes stands with these dictators will always fire back at us one way or another.
