Who Wants War?

Did anyone ask you?  Have you ever asked the fundamental question?

My first 8 years of life – 6 were spent in a war – the last 4 I remember well. I don’t recommend it!
The years after the war were no picnic either – but we survived!

Furthermore, do you really want to know? You might not like the answer! Does truth matter anymore? Did it ever?

I asked the simple question: Who wants war? (from my library) – the answer is here - – a compilation of articles, including the one by General Butler - War Is A Racket - “I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”

On a related note - America’s Wealth Hinges on Its Ability to Borrow Big – or Else - isn’t that reassuring? Ah – how much do we spend annually on just our FOREIGN policy military adventures? Don’t ask!

Yeah, I know, your neighbor said we need to fight’em over there and not here. What else do you depend on your neighbor? And besides, who’s ‘em? Also, ask him about our borders which apparently are not worth defending – yeah, I know – don’t ask!

Oh, you’re scheduling a church service to ‘support our troops’? Christian War Fever - By Chuck Baldwin
Here are more articles by Chuck Baldwin on American wars.

Godless primitivism is not the answer - Without Christianity, without the European nations, without the Graeco-Roman legal and philosophic traditions, there is no Western civilization. Which, of course, is why the only solution to the undermining and subversion of the West is to return to the three core pillars of the West.
