President Trump and His War Hawk Advisors are Pushing for a Major Conflict With Iran

May 15, 2019

Rescue Dawn

The smell of burnt flesh of young boys and girls is coming back with the threat of a major conflict. Trump and his war hawk National Security advisor, John Bolton are poised to send thousands of our troops into a major engagement. Bolton said yesterday that to beat Iran in a war isn’t going to a pushover.

These two war hawks are men in their 70’s.  Trump has never seen action in any of our wars or conflicts. His father’s money kept him from serving his country. He did see plenty of action in the back seat of his car as well in hotels as our brave soldiers, male and female, were fighting in Vietnam. Trump said if Iran does anything wrong against us he will send overwhelming forces to fight Iran.

Many young people died in Vietnam or returned missing limbs.  Many were mentally and/or physically wounded.

The Vietnam War was very unpopular in America and because of this, soldiers who returned home weren’t treated with respect. They weren’t treated as heroes. Many of these brave people lives were destroyed by what they saw or did in the war.

We now have President who only loves himself. Since he’s never felt the fear and horror of fighting for his country he will be smiling when he gives a medal to a soldier or to the parents of an 18-year-old son or daughter, who was blown apart.

The war hawks in Washington must not win this one. Trump must be stopped if he is really thinking about entering a war or conflict.

Every parent should try to stop President Trump from taking our young people to fight this rich man’s war.

    Another meaningless war fought for the One Percent’s greed, oil in this case, but what we cattle are getting is the usual feed that it’s all about freedom and democracy.

    Another meaningless war started without a vote in Congress whose consent as defined in Article 1 of the Constitution is necessary and also in defiance to the 1973 War Powers Act which reiterates that the consent of Congress is necessary.

    Now we have the Trump/Bolton administration openly talking about regime change as if it is the right of the US to rearrange the governments of the world to our liking. Venezuela, North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Central America; they sprinkle regime change all over the world as indiscriminately as they sprinkle salt on their food.

    In Venezuela it’s about oil for the One Percent again. But it’s also about the inability of President Dumbass to connect the dots and realize that soon it will be Venezuelan refugees crossing the border. Instead of fighting with the refugees of Central America someone should realize that if we stopped ruining their governments they wouldn’t be migrating north where it is safe to live.

    In North Korea it’s about the inability of President Dumbass to realize that Kim Jung-un is playing him like a violin. The US fought a terrible war with Kim Jung-un’s grandfather and a decimating cold war with Kim Jung-un’s father. The US literally flattened every building, dam, bridge and utility in North Korea in 1953. Ignoring this history with North Korea as if it never happened is fatally delusional. North Korea hates the US. If President Dumbass thinks that North Korea has forgotten our past and that Kim Jung-un is his friend merely because he went to North Korea and allowed Kim to shake his royal hand he’s crazy.

    But we already know he’s crazy. In an attempt to become King he’s ignoring the 3 branch design of our Constitution, ignoring the basic rule that the Presidency can not be run for profit, ignoring that the Justice Department was designed to protect the people of the US not his personal protection, ignoring that the Attorney General defends the Constitution not the Presidency, ignoring that the Supreme Court interprets the Law the Land and not simply rule in his favor and ignoring the Intelligence Reports of his own government over Putin’s instructions.

    Let us not be crazy and fail to recognize this transformation from a democracy to a Banana Republic before it’s too late.

    “Lives In The Balance”

    I’ve been waiting for something to happen
    For a week or a month or a year
    With the blood in the ink of the headlines
    And the sound of the crowd in my ear
    You might ask what it takes to remember
    When you know that you’ve seen it before
    Where a government lies to a people
    And a country is drifting to war

    And there’s a shadow on the faces
    Of the men who send the guns
    To the wars that are fought in places
    Where their business interest runs

    On the radio talk shows and the T.V.
    You hear one thing again and again
    How the U.S.A. stands for freedom
    And we come to the aid of a friend
    But who are the ones that we call our friends
    These governments killing their own?
    Or the people who finally can’t take any more
    And they pick up a gun or a brick or a stone
    There are lives in the balance
    There are people under fire
    There are children at the cannons
    And there is blood on the wire

    There’s a shadow on the faces
    Of the men who fan the flames
    Of the wars that are fought in places
    Where we can’t even say the names

    They sell us the President the same way
    They sell us our clothes and our cars
    They sell us every thing from youth to religion
    The same time they sell us our wars
    I want to know who the men in the shadows are
    I want to hear somebody asking them why
    They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are
    But they’re never the ones to fight or to die
    And there are lives in the balance
    There are people under fire
    There are children at the cannons
    And there is blood on the wire
