Memorial Day should be celebrated by telling the truth!

Every year we supposedly honor the men who serve(d) in the military on the last Monday of May. Each year lies are intentionally dispensed in the media and in communities across the country. This propaganda madness has to stop!  We owe the truth to all who have paid the price of the bankster’s wars in pain, suffering and even death. And, we also owe it to all of the young men who foolishly enlist thinking they will be “serving their country”!

The military (war) machine was brilliantly exposed by Smedley Butler in his book War is a Racket. Here is Butler’s book in its audio version:

Please share this audio book. The truth about the US military and those it entraps needs to become common knowledge, as the war racket that Butler described is still ongoing and much more destructive. See the following article:

America Loves Peace? Odd, Since We’re Always at War

We’ve been in conflict for about half the period between World War II and the present

By David Michael Green, AlterNet
February 27, 2008

Excerpt:
Since World War II, the United States has messed around, in ways big and small, in Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Afghanistan, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Lebanon, Grenada, Iraq, Panama, Colombia, Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Haiti, Afghanistan again, and Iraq again. No country in the world can begin to match this record in the last half-century. And I’m not even listing here the covert operations (almost everywhere), including the ones that toppled democratically elected governments (Iran, Guatemala, Chile, etc.), the long-term occupations of Latin American countries by the U.S. military, the gunboat diplomacy of the American Navy around the world, the aiding and abetting of other killers (Saddam invading Iran, for example, apartheid South Africa or the Israeli occupation of Palestine), the militarization of the oceans and of space, or the myriad other ways in which the United States leads the planet in aggressive tendencies.
