[War] won’t stop till there is as much brains and scientific study put to aid peace as there is to promote war. – May 31, 1928 Will Rogers
Here we are one world war and dozens of other wars later and still we can’t understand what Will was saying almost one hundred years ago. Except for a brief period during the Clinton years we have been in constant wars throughout my sixty-some years on this earth. Our soldiers are getting way beyond weary as evidenced by the recent massacre in Afghanistan by a four tour American soldier. Our national debt is increasing beyond imaginations to pay to keep all our wars going. And now we seem to be adding insanity on top of insanity by wanted to go to war with yet another country in the Middle East!
Most of our reasons for these most recent wars stems from our needs for oil. Why can’t we move beyond the one hundred plus year old gasoline engine to something that doesn’t require our young people’s lives to maintain it.
This greatly saddens me. I need to lighten up some so this dark world doesn’t drag me down. Enough said…
