Hi guys I want to introduce myself I am a former veteran of the Iraqi War. Not the first one but the second one that we actually won.
My name is David Demetrius I spent my time in Iraq as a medic with the Marine Corps. During this time find the opportunity to witness our government and all of its phenomenal glory. And yes I’m being a bit sarcastic.
And by the way, I’m completely joking about the fact that we won the second and by the way I’m completely joking about the fact that we won the second war. The truth of the matter is what I learned from that experience was that we didn’t actually win anything other than a bunch more and by the way I’m completely joking about the fact that we won the second war. The truth of the matter is what I learned from that experience was that we didn’t actually win anything other than a bunch more trouble that’s going to be coming our way in the future. You see when you go put your hand in a hornet’s nest you’re not really getting them. By disturbing the status quo I no doubt believe that we have made enemies that will last for 6,000 years. Sounds a little ridiculous to say 6000 years but the Muslim religion has been around for a very long time and Isis or isil or whatever the hell they want to call themselves will not forget how much they hate us tomorrow.
You see if people like Dick Cheney that really get me hot and bothered. When I think about people like Dick Cheney and the type of power that he had at the time it really freaks me out. You see this guy had all the power in the world of the time and almost very little if any accountability. He’s the type of man that made decisions about people’s lives going to Iraq to fight and die without really considering the lie that he was passing along to everyone. What is it? Weapons of mass destruction. Everybody knows that the real reason we were quote-unquote supposedly there was to deal with weapons of mass destruction.
The truth that we discovered after the fact was there were no weapons of mass destruction. You see I have friends today that have purple hearts because they thought in places that were very difficult. Those purple hearts word for their honor and for their willingness to give above and beyond. Aside from just the fact that they took a shot or he trapped or did something that really created paying for them in their life. BC politically I look at the entire thing in the Middle East as an absolute fail.
The older I get the more I really understand the only way to live life peacefully. The truth is we went over to Iraq to finish George Bush senior’s War for junior. It was the closing of that chapter that probably caused more pain for everyone. Now you can sit here and talk about Saddam Hussein and it’s a good thing that we call them. And I would not disagree with you. However, it was being in Iraq for the extended. Of time and the deaths that were caused by innocent US soldiers and Marines shooting innocent people that created more enemies of the state.
Today when I turn on the television I see Isis in places that I still just a few years ago. It doesn’t make me feel good to think about the fact that my friends gave real American blood for that property. In the future we must consider the enemies that we have created and how we will deal with them. No doubt our country has been changed forever because of the fighting that has gone on in recent history. It seems like every generation needs to learn the lesson over and over again. I look forward to the day that we start learning from the history lessons that are right before us. I believe that those that don’t study history are absolutely damned to repeat it. No doubt our own Society is going through an amazing change right now. Those changes are not only good but bad as well. Other Rants and Raves that I intend to address in the future are going to be about how we’ve lost personal freedom by taking freedom from others.
