As A Veteran I Refuse to Celebrate War

As A Veteran I Refuse to Celebrate War

“Let November 11 be a day we celebrate veterans, not of endless bloody war, but of the struggles for peace and equality.” I’m in the same position as this author, but not as eloquent. I co-founded Veterans for Peace Chapter 156 in Medford, OR and was that chapter’s deputy chairman/webmaster until the VFP hierarchy unleashed the VFP October Bomb… Oct 2010 article referenced beneath Truthout’s article in this post…when I found that the VFP hierarchy was strongly ANTI-WAR, not FOR PEACE. This is a situation that, per spiritual laws and Newton’s laws of physics, provides energy TO the concept of war…Think about it…”for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” ~ Don Chapin

Trump has literally brought shame and disgrace upon the U.S. military

Trump has literally brought shame and disgrace upon the U.S. military

Donald Trump’s directive to American troops to abandon our Kurdish allies in the fight against ISIS, leaving them instead wholly at the mercy of invading Turkish forces, has already left an indelible scar on the reputation and credibility of the U.S. military— according to the troops themselves. “It’s a stain on the American conscience.” Of course, in the military, the troops are rarely, if ever, consulted.

Video: Orca and Navy Sonar

Video: Orca and Navy Sonar

These videos show how navy sonar affects marine mammals like killer whales and dolphins…even at distances of 12-15 miles away from the ship. You can hear the hideous sounds and see the animals swimming, some erratically, to shore in an attempt to escape the painful sound. If you are thinking of enlisting in the US Navy, you may be ordered to participate in this illegal & immoral activity

Former Bush Administration Insider Reflects on the Failure of the Iraq War

Former Bush Administration Insider Reflects on the Failure of the Iraq War

This is not a short piece, but the similarities of behind-the-scenes manipulation of facts, complete ineptitude and publicized rationale, by U.S. administration war-mongers of the then-Iraqi war and today’s dealings with Iran are downright scary. ~ Don Chapin

Why are there a disproportionate number of southerners in the US military?

Why are there a disproportionate number of southerners in the US military?

Yes, I agree about the localized cultural aspects, but another reason for the disproportionate numbers of southern-origin military is the general lack of paying jobs in the south, just as in inner cities, whereupon the military becomes a viable option in contrast to the rest of the country. In some contrast to an allegation in this article concerning “it’s not just poverty,” military recruiting therefore has historically targeted the South and inner cities. Likewise, military chaplains are largely from southern evangelical schools, which also fits the profile as presented in this article… roughly 80% the last I saw… which creates more problems when they attempt to “convert” military members of other faiths or ‘independents.’ So, we also have DoD recruiting taking advantage of social and economic conditions to “target” the South for recruits, in addition to and supported by, the factors highlighted in this article. ~ Don Chapin
