A Soldier’s Resignation

via Common Dreams

I hereby resign in protest effective immediately.

I have served the post-911 Military Industrial complex for 10 years, first as a soldier in Baghdad, and now as a defense contractor.

I have always believed that if every foot soldier threw down his rifle war would end. I hereby throw mine down.At the time of my enlistment, I believed in the cause. I was ignorant, naïve, and misled. The narrative, professed by the state, and echoed by the mainstream press, has proven false and criminal. We have become what I thought we were fighting against.

Recent revelations by fearless journalists of war crimes including counterinsurgency “dirty” wars, drone terrorism, the suspension of due process, torture, mass surveillance, and widespread regulatory capture have shed light on the true nature of the current US Government. I encourage you to read more about these topics at the links I have provided below.

Some will say that I am being irresponsible, impractical, and irrational. Others will insist that I am crazy. I have come to believe that the true insanity is doing nothing. As long as we sit in comfort, turning a blind eye to the injustices of the world, nothing will change. It is even worse to play an active part, protesting all along that I am not the true criminal.

I was only a foot soldier, and am now a low level clerk. However, I have always believed that if every foot soldier threw down his rifle war would end. I hereby throw mine down.

I just hope those who call themselves liberals or the progressive left and harbour a lingering desire for the west to intervene in the Syrian conflic and other Barack Obama inspired uprisings by Islamic theorcrats against secular dictatorship will now reconsider their selfish position.

It is not about you idiots, we know the most important thing to these pseduo humanitarians is to make a big show of wringing your hands and caring, to be seen to be a humanitarian. Unfortunately you forget those loyal to Assad in Syrian and to Gadaffi in Libya, to the regime in Yeamen and to their nations rather that the western insurgents in Afghanistan and Pakistan and who have been murdered by western bombs and bullets were people too. They had rights, principally the right to life, of which they have been robbed by forces you support.

Are you feeling prod of yourselves yet. You see, politically illiterate retards, the Corporate Cartels, New World Order, Military – Industrial Complex, The Illuminati, call them what you will, own left and right. And while you persist in your pathetic, self indulgent, egocentric bleating about fairness, you are aiding those people you profess to hate.

Do you enjoy being had over a barrel or something?
