Former WW II bombardier-turned-historian Howard Zinn asks the question “Why?”
Was there another way short of Total War? (which after all is just a euphemism for “kill civilians when needed.”)
That was the bottom line fact of World War II: All sides targeted civilians. What as so “good” about that?
But whenever the punks in Washington want to bomb another country, they dust off memories of the “Good War” and the need to defeat the “next Hitler” and avoid “appeasement” at all costs.
It’s a not-so-subtle psychological trick and, so far, it’s worked every time.
Maybe it’s time we wised up.
TAP – This speaker is anti-war and makes good points. He doesn’t seem to realise that the events that create war are all manufactured deliberately. WW2 was manufactured theatre. There are many links on The Tap explaining how the events that took place were false events, manipulated by a higher cabal working behind the scenes, financing and controlling all the nations involved in the theatre they planned and executed. He’s worth a listen as he tells how the mind can be tricked into doing terrible things, and how you can stop the process by being more aware as to what is going on.
