As American politicians foam at the mouth in anticipation of dragging us into yet another unconstitutional and unnecessary war in Korea, we may want to ponder a few words from General Douglas MacArthur.
MacArthur led the first major error of America involving itself in a civil war 6000 miles away from home.
The error had nothing whatsoever to do with defending America. It was pure military adventurism.
After the fact, MacArthur explained how the government keeps the war racket going. In 1965, he said:
“Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear - kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor - with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant funds demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real.”
Government tactics are exactly the same almost 70 years later. When Americans are afraid, government capitalizes. Only the names of the warmongers have changed.
In the first Korean War, many millions needlessly went to early graves.
Must the same fatal error happen again?
Didn't Trump promise "America" First?
When will Americans stop being afraid?
