The beating drums of war

The drums of war are beating to a fever pitch and all hell is about to break loose. I have been reporting my findings for months now, and it seems the time is about to come. Unless enough people wake up and say “no! ” War is a racket, but it seems that we are intent on throwing more young men onto the bayonets of others, so that a select few can benefit.

Why would we allow our current leaders to throw us into such a deadly fight? From the left you have Hillary Clinton who admits that the US created Al-Qaeda, and from the right you have Mitt Romney who talks of letting off dirty bombs in Chicago.

We have a large naval exercise going on in the gulf right now while our president meets with the Israeli prime minister, while his army performs a snap military exercise in the Golan heights.

And we now have a senior Chinese general ordering its military to prepare for war with Japan.

This all the while our economy and currency is collapsing.

Our economy is losing more and more freedom, while we have more and more military buildup at home. The department of homeland security continues to order more and more rounds of ammunition.

If Israel attacks Iran, it will retaliate and shut down the Straight of Hormuz, which would make the price of oil skyrocket, and make gasoline in the US go up to around $10 a gallon on average. Our stock market will crash, and there will be civil unrest at home.

A worse case scenario (barring all out nuclear war) would be if the Chinese attack the Japanese, and decide to take out all our military bases in and around Asia, since we would need to back up the Japanese militarily.

If Iran is provoked into war, there is a high probability of them being able to take out all of our bases in the middle east. Especially with their Russian missile batteries.

Russia could attack multiple European bases if it felt threatened, and by this point, we would have no more show of force in the world. Almost all of our overseas bases would be wiped out, and since our military is so stretched out across the globe, it would take years for us to recover.

All this would come after a complete economic collapse which would include all the major countries dumping the US dollar.

Between the currency collapse and the decimation of our military, this country would be left dead in the water.

The scary part is, that there are rumors today of a dollar dumping, and the military exercises currently going on could well be a prelude to all out attacks.

All this coupled with cyber attacks and mis-information from the media can lead up to only one thing; the beating drums of war will get what they want, and all out carnage will ensue.

I pray that we do not allow this to happen. Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, do your own research. Lets see if we can’t use the power of the internet to stop this madness in its tracks!

The Drum
“Mr. Scott”
[John Scott][1]
The Cambridge Intelligencer (August 3, 1793)[2]

I hate that drum’s discordant sound,
Parading round, and round, and round:
To thoughtless youth it pleasure yields,
And lures from cities and from fields,
To sell their liberty for charms
Of tawdry lace and glitt’ring arms;
And when Ambition’s voice commands,
To fight and fall in foreign lands.

I hate that drum’s discordant sound,
Parading round, and round, and round:
To me it talks of ravaged plains,
And burning towns and ruin’d swains,
And mangled limbs, and dying groans,
And widow’s tears, and orphans moans,
And all that Misery’s hand bestows,
To fill a catalogue of woes.
