Disrespecting American Soldiers
Whenever an American soldier is
killed in the Iraq war, he is honoured as a hero, as if he were a true soldier who gave
his life to defend his country as hundreds of thousands did in World War II. But this
soldier has utterly nothing in common with the brave defenders of freedom in
WWII (World War II). Today’s soldier
has the morals and motivation as of perverted serial killer.
Why do I say this?
- I explained an another essay why all Americans in Iraq are
international war criminals subject eventually to prosecution and life imprisonment. I
don’t find war criminals particularly deserving of respect. If you are an
American soldier and you are wondering why am requesting that everyone spit on you,
read this essay to
understand why. You deserve treatment no better than any other criminal on death row
especially when you brazenly brag about your capital crime and encourage others to
follow in your footsteps.
- I explained an another
essay why most Americans in Iraq are terrorists. I don’t find terrorists
particularly deserving of respect.
- Today’s soldier is not defending his country. Iraq had no
WMDs (Weapon of Mass Destructions). Iraq had no
weapons at all with to threaten the USA. Bush Sr. disarmed it the end of the Gulf War.
Iraq had not managed to hit a single plane as the US bombed Iraq between the two wars
killing between one and two million Iraqis, mostly children. Today’s soldier is
not fighting to defend, but to conquer and plunder.
- The excuse that the war was justified to depose Saddam on altruistic motives makes
no sense when you realise Saddam was captured in 2003. The
war did not even pause for an instant. The war was not about Saddam.
- Today’s soldier kills mostly defenseless civilians and most of them children.
He excuses his brutality as collateral damage.
- The motive for joining the army then can’t be defending your country. If the
pay is terrible, why would anyone sign up. Very simple. Enlistees can kill people,
mostly women and children. They can rape, murder and torture with almost no chance of
legal prosecution. They are motivated by sadistic lust no matter what other crap they
spout as a cover. They are like Mr. Brooks in the movie, kind family men, who have an
itch they cannot suppress to terrify, torment, torture and slaughter. Any normal person
when given the chance to slaughter children is horrified. Our young soldier leaps at
the chance like a trout going for a grub. Any normal person, when told he ought to
napalm children to death demands to know why. He will search for any possible way to
avoid such mayhem. He will distrust those who ask him to commit such an atrocity. He
will check and double check before considering such an act. Yet our young soldier can
hardly wait. He does not even need a reason. He is horny for blood, anyone’s
blood, though preferably non-white, non-Christian blood. He is overjoyed the government
is giving him a license to act out his bigotry and sadism. He deserves no respect for
indulging his dark side at the expense of people who did him or his country no
- In this war, American soldiers routinely torture all detainees. The use
Saddam’s own torture chambers and instruments, but torture on such a scale, they
had to build even more dungeons. Nobody has tortured on this scale since the
Inquisition. This is all out in the open. Nazi soldiers could claim they had no idea
what was happening to the Jews. American soldiers have no such excuse.
- In this war, Americans openly use banned weapons such as land mines, napalm, white
phosphorus and cluster bombs and they use them on children. In
WWII, even Hitler avoided
the use of such weapons.
- Some defend the soldiers on the grounds they are stupid. They say the soldiers
imagine they are taking revenge against those who perpetrated 2001-09-11. I don’t buy that. It is like excusing Nazis for killing Jews
on the grounds they believed the propaganda. If a man is contemplating murder, it is up
to him to double check it is justified. It is immediately obvious to anyone who does
the tiniest bit of reading that Iraq had nothing to do with 2001-09-11. Further, Saddam and bin Laden were arch enemies. If he was not
clued in before he got to Iraq, it surely becames obvious he was hurting kids once he
got there. Nazis had the excuse they would have been shot had they resisted once they
realised they were in the wrong. Americans have no such excuse. They are all moral
cowards, with a very few exceptions, such as Leutenant Watada.
- There is no bravery in this war. It is preposterously one sided. The Americans have
the latest most expensive weapons. The Iraqis have only IED (Improvised Explosive Device)
s, home-made bombs. American
slaughter Iraqis by the tens of thousands, while hiding behind high tech armour, like
shooting fish in a barrel. The motivations of the American soldiers are a sick as any
thing you have ever seen in a Hollywood movie. They have the power to torment the
Iraqis, steal their resources and enslave them and they utterly unscrupulous in
exercising that overwhelming power. It is a case of absolute power corrupting
American Soldiers are Just Serial Killers
So an American soldier today is just a
serial killer smart enough not likely to get caught, like the Kevin Kostner character in
the movie Mr. Brooks. Please excuse me if I don’t pretend to grieve
when one of these men (or women) bites the big one. He got damn well what he deserved.
May he rot in hell for eternity for his crimes against the children of Iraq. He is not a
soldier. He has nothing in common with the men who fought in
WWII. He has much more in
common with a hired killer. It is revolting the way people treat him with the respect as
if he were truly a soldier. That false undeserved respect is the ultimate
disrespect for those who did give their lives for a just cause.
When the military screws soldiers who come back disabled, or I
hear of their psychological problems, I rejoice at the natural justice of the universe. I
think of the misery these guys created in Iraq to people who did absolutely nothing to
provoke the malice. When one of these guys is killed I give a sigh of relief that another
serial killer has been removed from the gene pool. It is sad when a child loses a father,
but that soldier was busy killing other kids' fathers, so it is a Good Thing™
when somebody finally stops his killing spree.
