Memorial Day Thoughts, 2011
For a change, this year, let's pay tribute to all the victims
of US government-military aggression...
by Brian Wright
"We Americans are the ultimate innocents. We are forever desperate to believe that this time the government is telling us the truth."
Since my Memorial Day column from 2008 has been such a perennial visit-gatherer—and I must admit it touches all the libertarian emotional, intellectual, and spiritual bases—I'm going to continue that tradition this year... with more thoughts on paying tribute to those who fought and died for (or partly in) human liberty, whether or not they are American and whether or not they ever donned a uniform.
Let's also pay our respects to the millions of victims of the Borg-dominated US government which—serving the interests of the international looting classes of the West (since roughly the 1830s)—led its men in uniform into acts of aggression or sanction thereof, such as:
the War of Northern (Borg-US) Aggression resulting in more than one million military dead and wounded, some estimates of 250,000 civilian casualties
the Indian Wars resulting in roughly 2,000 American military casualties, and estimates of several million Indian casualties considering other effects of military conquest: dispossession, incarceration, and disease—i.e. genocide
the Spanish-American War killing approximately 5,000 American military, and, in the Philippines ~one million civilians dying as a consequence
the ethnic cleansing of millions of European German civilians at the hands of Soviet and Yugoslavian butchers—two million is the accepted number of civilian (often horrifying) deaths—thanks to meetings of Borg-US leader Roosevelt and Borg-UK leader Churchill with Stalin at the end of WW2
the untold millions of innocent civilians slaughtered by home-grown clients of the American
state-terror apparatus (CIA) from support of corporate-friendly dictators from Iran to Guatemala to Indonesia after WW2
War Crime in the 1970s causing ~2,000,000 civilian casualties, roughly 10% of those coming from US bombing operations (the Vietnam War was a war of aggression by Borg-US forces against the Vietnamese people resisting a corrupt and murderous French-inherited dictatorship)
Granted this is a polemical piece, and civilian casualty numbers are always a matter of strong debate on every side, so I simply want to make it clear that in each of the eight Borg-US-inspired-or-enabled actions above—with the possible exception of #5—men serving in the US military have made possible more than a few civilian deaths of noncombatant human beings... by following the orders of their military-political leaders, which sometimes were to intentionally, unprovokedly, and unilaterally murder persons posing no military threat.
Were there any justifiable wars for Americans? A maximum, I think, of three: 1) the War for Independence, 2) the War of 1812, and 3)
World War 2. And I'm not certain about that one.
By no means am I claiming individuals serving in the military or even the police forces are universally amoral or immoral. Cases in point: Pat Tillman and other would-be whistle-blowers, most of whom are harassed and sometimes, as in Tillman's case, killed by Borg operatives. All I'm saying is we need to look at what's real about the ol' red, white, and blue... see the big picture of whose interests a gargantuan military empire (2,500,000 persons encamped in 700+ bases around the world) truly serve. Such a monstrosity can only be the foundation of global tyranny... definitely not what most of our fighting men signed up for.
So what do we as civilians do, what is a suitable libertarian memorial for those in uniform?
Three Step Program
Let me stay brief and focused. We need to take three steps—those of us who have a care for our country and its future—to do all that we can to properly commemorate our founders and defenders of American liberty:
Take your head out of your butt—whether you've decided not to stand tall and look around to see what's what out of a) fear of being unpopular, b) fear of the 900# gorilla you've thus far ignored, or c) you prefer to remain in the dark where nobody can find you, the fact is they—the police-state thugs—will find you... and put you away.
Take your thumb out of your butt—having learned that the Barrier Cloud is driven externally by Borg mind-control and conscious intention of forces hostile to natural humanity, recognize the need to expose the threat and cure the social disease represented by these men of the power sickness (MOPS). Fundamentally, humans must undertake a grassroots movement to undo coercive government at all levels and achieve individual spiritual awakening.
Forgive the blunt talk, I wanted to end this column on an upbeat tone. My Memorial Day message: I remarked in my previous column, "... as Charles Lindbergh once put it, 'One man with courage makes a majority.' It only takes one brave man—take a Gandhi or an ML King—to put an end to an empire and its wars. Mainly because the lies that are integral to such empires and wars cannot stand up to the little boy exclaiming that the emperor has no clothes."
 Borg = the operational 'central controlling entity' serving the international looting elites—i.e. central-bank consortium, banksters and their corporate-political drones—of the West; the Borg is known for its military and security state functions as well as its information-, mind-, and population-control apparatus. I'm thankful to Phil Garlington, author of Rancho Costa Nada: The dirt-cheap desert homestead, for giving me this term, possibly the best name ever for what I used to call the Alien Space Lizards of the Pathocracy.
 Borg forces, based on the Rothschild Formula, financed the war buildups of all the fascist states, communist states, and corporate states in the 20th century... analogous to the Mob creating threats to justify paying for their protection. Kill the Borg, end war.
