Re: D-Day: June 6, 1944
Why haven't I seen a single thread here today in commemoration of today's D-Day anniversary?

This is an important anniversary and without the sacrifices made that day, we wouldn't be able to be here today and discuss what we do daily.

Let's give a round of applause to those who sacrificed for us all 68 years ago today.

Re: D-Day: June 6, 1944
For the ones that died in World War 2, I have to think of their missed lives, I had an Uncle who died in that war. They were
drafted men they didn't really have a choice, except if they were the only male in the family.

Glad you put this on, my big sister and I were just talking about my Uncle today.

My heart goes out to all the families and individuals that have ever been torn apart by war.

Unfortunately war has never created peace or freedom, only peace, love and compassion can create all that most of us desire.

I have a very hard time commemorating a day were thousands were killed for what they thought was right, both sides.

I only wish strength of heart and mind in the coming times that more will choose love than any other.

Fighting fear, anger and hatred with violence only creates more.

Do it for my beautiful innocent children!

But what of "The Revolutionary War" of The United States against the established British Colonies?

flag waver

Are you saying that it didn't produce one of the best documents to date for the freedom of mankind?

This war DID produce freedom for a few dozen decades at least.

After that things get debatable.
 Quoting: IRQ_1

It is a beautiful document, but it did create the world greatest war machine, a military larger than the rest of the world combine, a lot of beautiful minds have flourish in your country but we in Canada (not that we are great) are not that different than America and left Britain slowly but without war... Still not sure how the revolutionary wr created peace...
 Quoting: Ryan 15497721


The United States Constitution did not create the worlds greatest war machine. It simply stated the overlay and spiritually Masonic builder "Duhh" of things needed to produce a New World and new way of things. And it has worked very well up to a certain point.

Re: D-Day: June 6, 1944
out of the 60 million casualties in ww2, russians accounted for half of that, around 30 million...thats half.

germany however only lost 3 million, around there.

Sorry for any confusion the document has nothing to do with war, the revolutionary war created the stage for the creation of the US which is the worlds greatest war machine, I am not debating the US constitution only the reality that war will never create peace (it simply goes against laws of the universe- love attracts love , hate attracts hate)

Re: D-Day: June 6, 1944
I have a great uncle who was an engineer in the Army during WWII and whose job was to blow up 'stuff'. He ended up in Germany when the US finally made it there and he blew up one helluva lot of bridges (and other structures).

To this day, he dives to the ground if he hears a close-sounding airplane - but NEVER talks about the war itself EXCEPT he said the German soldiers could shoot the end of a cigarette, in the dark, from far away. They were apparently highly disciplined and good shots. But the Americans were better in the end. He is close to death now, is VERY old and I'll miss him when he's gone.

War is such a mind-fuck. It is hell. Wars are fought for corporations - yep, we know that NOW but those drafted in previous wars never knew it, of course. NOW we have an economic draft and again, soldiers are dying for corporations. How it breaks my heart to see these young men and women without limbs and now the big one - traumatic brain injuries that turn them into vegetables.

What a WASTE of human life - and yet when I tell young men about to go into the military this, they ignore me - they either want a paycheck, some food and bedding (get off the streets/get out of poverty) or they want to be heroes, sometimes both.

How I wish all the warmongers throughout history and to this day - the fat cats - will rot in HELL but not before they're lined up and shot at themselves - a slow death would be justice. Start with the legs and work it on up to the head. Make 'em suffer to the max. I'd start with Cheney and move up the line from there.

At the highest levels this is true. It's just too bad we (as the sane ones) can't convince our rulers of this.

Sorry Ryan, it's late and I have to work tomorrow.

But thank you for the thought and comments which are usually and sadly NOT GENERALLY what I expect from here.

Re: D-Day: June 6, 1944
I would like to thank anyone and everyone that was in that horrendous battle.I pray to God that we never have to experience something like that again. I also ask God to touch with his healing hand, anyone still feeling the grief and pain of that awful day. I ask him to heal them of their pain and remind everyone,that our loved ones lost on that day are with you happy and safe. Men should never have to kill or be killed in those ways.Please understand that we deserve better and are better. It's our job as loving individuals, to never resort to such methods. May God bless us all and heal our imperfections every day.I pray you give me better understanding so that I may be understood better. In your sons loving name I ask these things.

I won't respond in kind.I think its a sorry state that after 6,000 years, Society only way to solve their differences is to kill each other. You can call me religious if you chose. I would just say I'm a believer.One with faith.I apologize If my words have harmed you in some way. Life is precious.

Guys, it doesn't matter if the war was contrived or not...

When a brave man believes that fighting an evil empire to the death is the right thing to do, he will do it without thinking.

Look up the word courage if you don't understand what I'm talking about.

I can't argue with the fact that most wars over the last few centuries were contrived to the benefit of others higher up on the pyramid. It certainly seems that way.

That said can you not understand the bravery and courage they must have had to go through with that?

PLEASE REMEMBER...

There was no Internet, no Wiki, no easy access to info to know the secrets behind that war. They had no clue as to the information, as us keyboard warriors know now to make a truly informed and fair decision.

It is for that reason why I honor them. Put yourself in their shoes as to why most of them served and do so from the perspective of the time BACK THEN and NOT NOW.

Lastly I won't celebrate ANY war but I will recognize the honor of warriors.
