|A question of sincerity, morality and sincerityPage 1 of 1 |
|When someone refuses to fight for their country, some regard them as despicable cowards, while others see them as principled heroes standing up for what they believe in. |
So what of someone who refuses to fight for their country and later on in life promotes aggression and war as the only option? Is this a coward turned hero? Is this someone to be respected as strong, powerful and principled? Is this the coward or a weak person hiding behind strong words, through getting others to fight his fights for him, while pretending to be principled?
So how do we regards a unprincipled coward, who just did not want to fight, not because of his strong principles but because he might get wounded or killed? What if later in life these people join powerful groups and advocate war as the only real option, through appearing strong and principled?
Would you believe them, follow them, promote them, let them get their way as worthy leaders or concerned citizens?
Do these people deserve respect? Should they be able to get their way?

|John Bolton, George W Bush,****Cheney, each took steps to avoid being drafted for the war in Vietnam. Bolton ensuring that he would not be drafted, writing in his Yale University 25 year class reunion book, “I confess I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy.”|
Instead, like former President George W Bush, Bolton joined the National Guard and stayed home. He also enrolled at Yale to study law before moving smoothly into politics as an advocate of might is right, climbing the greasy neocon pole in Washington to positions of influence.
Bolton continues to have, its most resolute champion and defender, of the Iraq war John Bolton lack of remorse or contrition over the catastrophe inflicted on the country and its people, not forgetting the destabilization of the entire region continues.
Bolton was key in Trump’s unconscionable decision to unilaterally pull out of the P5+1 Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPOA) in May 2018, followed by the return of even more stringent sanctions on Iran than had been in place prior to the deal. He was also a prime mover of Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia, laying the ground for a new arms race.
The man, to be frank, is a thug in a suit, who since taking up the role of Trump’s national security adviser in April 2018, has rampaged around the world like a vicious dog, intoxicated with the power to threaten, intimidate and bully at will. Bolton is committed to punishing any nation on earth who dare resist the demands of Washington.
Someone who knows Bolton more than most is Richard Painter, a lawyer who served in the Bush administration. When Bolton’s appointment as Trump’s national security adviser was announced, Painter tweeted his dismay along with a chilling warning: “John Bolton was by far the most dangerous man we had in the entire eight years of the Bush Administration. Hiring him as the president's top national security advisor is an invitation to war, perhaps nuclear war. This must be stopped at all costs.”
Elliot Abram CIA-backed death squads tortured and murdered hundreds of thousands of Mayan Indians in Guatemala in the 1980's.. Abram’s U.S. trained death squads killed some 80,000 people in El Salvador, 200 – 250,000 in Guatemala and untold thousands in Nicaragua, He oversaw a campaign of mass murder and torture of indigenous people in Guatemala in the 1980s. Abrams was also linked to the 2002 coup in Venezuela that attempted to topple Hugo Chávez.
His death squad practices were designed to create terror and fear I the populations, with decapitating children, crucifying people, In one particular case, in 1985, an activist for the relatives of the disappeared, named Rosario Godoy, was abducted by the army. She was raped. Her mutilated body was found alongside that of her baby. The baby’s fingernails had been torn out. When Elliott Abrams was asked about this accident, he affirmed also that they died in a traffic accident. This activist raped and mutilated, the baby with his fingernails pulled out, Abrams says it’s a traffic accident. El Salvador, In El Mozote, a U.S.-trained battalion massacred more than 500 civilians, slitting the throats of children along the way, He later described the results of his policy, in El Salvador as a fabulous achievement. In El Salvador his death squads had a particular practice of cutting off the genitals of their victims, stuffing them in their mouths and putting them on open display on the roadsides
Abrams said it was all necessary in the context of the Cold War.
This is Elliott Abrams, who has now been put in charge of key aspects of the U.S. policy toward Venezuela by TRUMP.
Are these people WE should respect because they are powerful and principled?

|So crimes against humanity, disregard of international law, mass murder, destruction, extortion are legal for the only nation on earth that makes the laws for the rest of humanity. Where once such crimes were done by leaders such a Hitler, Stalin its now all done covertly on behalf of US corporate interests and the Brainwashed population just allow this outrage against not just humanity, but the future of humanity. The Corporate perspective is knowing the cost of everything allows one to junk the values that bind humanity together. Chaos is profitable whereas peace has no dividends at all. So the psychopathic mindset heading this corporate mafia runs amok, globally threatening anyone it feels there is a quick buck to be made from their removal. So lets look forward to the use of nukes, as there is profit in such a scenario in their warped minds.|
But as for ordinary people we can do nothing, nothing that is unless we remember we are social animals and with to protect our children’s and other peoples children too. Our lives have value but to the corporate sector we are just there to be exploited till we are of no use, and discarded like a cigarette butt. It now seems the attitude once reserved by the Nazi's for minorities are now acceptable to corporate interests and the political puppets they purchase, to be practiced on weaker nations, because chaos, war, destruction is the most profitable thing on earth. If we object then they get the militarised police to break heads as they do not like beign questioned.
