Armistice Day

In America November 11th is a celebration of war, not peace. It’s Veteran’s Day, not Armistice Day.

I doubt a single soldier has died in my lifetime to protect America.

Sure…

America invaded Viet Nam to…well, you know 1;
America inserted itself into the Persian Gulf in the ’80s to…well, you know 2;
America invaded Afghanistan 17 years ago and is still there fighting because…well, you know 3;
America invaded Iraq 15 years ago to…well, you know 4;
America seems intent on stoking a war with both Iran and North Korea because…well, you know 5.

America has fought countless battles across the globe since my birth, but not until America breaks into an outright second Civil War will an American soldier die to protect our country.

Wake up, people. 6

Something to say...?
