THE ANSWER TO WAR

WAR: GOOD GOD YE'ALL 
WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?






MOHAVE RAT just published a post about the foolishness of war.  

I have an Idea that could end all wars and save warring countries the expense of maintaining an army and fighting.

When countries cannot reach a civilized agreement on issues and feel that bloodshed is the only answer - I prescribe the following:

1.    Take the top twenty politicians from each country
2.    Strip them buck naked
3.    Issue each two single edge razor blades
4.    Lock them in a large room
5.    Turn off the lights
6.    Either an agreement is reached or the last man standing wins.

I believe this would bring about a lasting peace and we could spend all our money on social programs for the people instead of a run away military complex. 


THIS IS NOT THE GLORY OF WAR


THIS IS

  1. War, what it is good for. Absolutely Nothing!!

    I left a comment on Mohave Rat's blog about the poster from the 60s. "War in not healthy for children or other living things."

    I vaguely remember a song that had something in it about "We're hairy and horny and ready to fight. We're the cops of the World!!"

  2. OB,
    I have two friends that were killed in the Nam and a buddy of mine from Hooters has a son who got nailed by a rag-head IED while a Marine in Helmad province. Nobody has to tell me about the cost of war - I have breathed the fumes when they were emalbing the Marines killed during the SS Mayaguez Rescue.
    Here it is: We in uniform do not make America's forign policy; we implement it. We go and we do. Yes, we come home in boxes and on Medi-Evac transports and we are fucked up people afterwards . But, we go because that is what we are trained to do.
    In a perfect world we would all get along - that is worse of a notion that any opium pipe might produce. The Arabs hate the Jews, the Sunni's hate the Shiites, the Chinese hate the Japs....
    Heads up - the next war will be waged in the East and South China Sea.

  6. I was the lead vocalist for a performance of the Edwin Starr version of War with a big rock band in 1985..at an anti war show in NYC at the Irving Plaza. I think I did it justice.

COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
