#Actual #Price #Warfare

COMMENT: Good Morning Mr. Armstrong, a long-time reader and consumer of Socrates and your conferences. I simply learn your entry for Belarus drafting 18 to 60-year-olds. I had a sense that finally, that may happen right here within the states. I can let you know no doubt, I’ll by no means comply. My household has served in WWII and Vietnam. Now we have given sufficient. I completely despise our authorities. I’m questioning if that is a part of the continued collapse of the federal government. With such low recruitment ranges and the political fallout from the previous few years, they have to understand individuals won’t be compelled to serve. Particularly these with the means to defend themselves. Is that this a foremost part of civil unrest right here with separatist actions? Simply curious should you can elaborate on what you assume will occur once they institute a draft right here.
All of the Greatest.


REPLY: My household has fought in each warfare for the reason that American Revolution. My cousin nonetheless has the musket on his wall from the American Revolution. I misplaced half of my highschool mates to Vietnam and my father and his three brothers had been all in World Warfare II and my grandfathers on either side of the household had been in World Warfare I. There isn’t any query that in a time of warfare, the primary shot fired is each silent and by no means towards an enemy. It’s at all times towards any truthful reporting of occasions.

The Protection Casualty Evaluation System (DCAS) Extract Recordsdata comprise data of 58,220 U.S. navy deadly casualties of the Vietnam Warfare. The federal government propaganda web site, Wikipedia additionally directed by the Deep State, has low-balled the casualties claiming in whole, all US and allied navy deaths reached 282,000. We declare that could be a victory for the VC misplaced 444,000 to presumably 666,000. The civilians who died have been low-balled with estimates of 405,000 as much as 627,000. Simply flip to Britannica and also you get:

“In 1995 Vietnam launched its official estimate of the variety of individuals killed throughout the Vietnam Warfare: as many as 2,000,000 civilians on either side and a few 1,100,000 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong fighters.”

President Lydon Johnson knew there was no motive to enter Vietnam. He knew we couldn’t get out simply. Nonetheless, he dedicated the nation to warfare as a result of the Neocons needed it.


It is a well-known {photograph} from Vietnam that’s most likely probably the most memorable of all time. You see South Vietnamese forces following terrified kids. On the heart is 9-year-old Phan Thi Kim Phùc, as she and different kids are operating from an aerial napalm assault on suspected Viet Cong hiding locations on June 8, 1972. The airplane by chance dropped napalm on South Vietnamese troops and civilians. As at all times, simply the collateral injury of warfare. The terrified lady had ripped off her burning garments whereas fleeing. This picture was taken by Nick Ut of The Related Press that captured the horror of Vietnam worldwide. It was 1972 when President Nixon stated sufficient and promised to carry the troops dwelling.

This 9-year-old make lady operating from napalm, Phan Thi Kim Phúc, had profoundly modified her without end. Such persons are tormented for a lifetime. They get up at night time dreaming time and again concerning the horror of these occasions for the remainder of their lives. Kim Phúc was bitter and filled with hatred she stated. Later, she picked up the Bible and transformed to Christianity. Immediately, she lives in Toronto along with her household and helps different kids victims of warfare around the globe. It’s those that survive who’re profoundly tortured for the rest of their lives. That’s the actual value of warfare that no person cares about.

The official estimate of civilian deaths in World Warfare II stands at a complete of 70–85 million. The precise navy deaths had been 21,000,000 to 25,500,000. There may be ALWAYS an equal quantity of civilian deaths in instances of warfare. These in energy by no means need to discuss that.
