"There is no War that Solves Anything"  

Thursday, August 18, 2005

I just saw some lady involved in the Cindy Sheehan situation go on TV and say, "There is no war that solves anything."

Yeah, ok lady. No war solves anything, huh? Your ignorance frosts me. You are an embarrassment to the free world. Any American who says something like that has forgotten to learn the lessons of the last 250 years.

In 1776, our Founding Fathers gathered in Philadelphia to set forth the problems they had with the British crown. They listed these problems, and signed their names at serious risk to their own lives and the lives of their families. They fought a war. They won the war. All problems listed either ceased or became their own to solve. That war clearly solved a lot.

In 1860, President Lincoln was elected to office. His platform was adamant: slavery would be ended. A war was fought among Americans. Brother fought brother. Father fought son. It was one of the bloodiest conflicts in the history of warfare. Lincoln won the war. Slavery was ended. Problem solved. Can you seriously tell me that war didn't solve anything?

In 1941, the world went to war to stop the advancement of Adolph Hitler. Another of history's bloodiest wars, both sides suffered casualties the likes of which could never have been imagined. You wanna bitch about 1800 soldiers losing their lives in the current conflict? The United States lost SEVERAL TIMES that during the Normandy invasion alone. The Allies won the war. Hitler committed suicide, and all of his awful deeds were exposed. Millions of suffering Jews were saved. That war was quite successful in solving some problems.

Remember, you stupid ignorant bitch - "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it."
