Uncivil War

user img

Masses massacred.
Was there ever a Civil War?
Are all wars
barbaric, uncivil?
Many would argue
that wars to free slaves, the war
to fight Hitler, wars to be freed
of colonial invasion, the battle of
Kurukshetra (the battle of the Bhagavad
Gita) are necessary
despite the mass slaughter of
civilians, soldiers, animals,
forests. Whatever ones opinion,
the leaders of great religions
such as Buddha, Jesus, Krishna
teach universal nonviolence.

My great grandfather fought for the Union Army in the Civil War…

My grandfather caught malaria from the invasion of Cuba in the Spanish American War

His death left his children without a father.

One of my uncles had a brain operation, a consequence of being in WW2..  Another was in the D Day  invasion.

My father from a forced Japanese encephalitis ‘vaccine’ shot given to soldiers in Asia

contracted a 107 degree temperature and died from Parkinson’s Disease.

My husband for many years had pain from the bullets in his leg in the Korean War.

3 of my brothers in law,  several cousins and a nephew served in the military.

2 friends died of Agent Orange effects.   One has still after 120 days not gotten help

from the Veterans’ Administration in bathing her husband… he is unable to walk from Agent Orange. 

 

Footnote:

If any question why we died, tell them, because our fathers lied.

 

Rudyard Kipling  wrote these lines after his son whom he had pushed

into war….. died
(1865-1936)

 

(My father never lied to me. But many fathers have forced their sons into the military.)
