re: Russia: US War with Russia? (Bienvenido Macario, Philippines) (John Eipper, USA, 09/14/08 6:24 pm)

Alain De Benoist wrote on 13 September:

In an interview with ABC News, Ms Palin was asked whether
the United States would have to go to war with Russia if it invaded
Georgia, and the country was part of NATO. Ms Palin said: "Perhaps
so." Sarah Palin supports also NATO membership for Ukraine.

[...]

I think this is much more important than anything which has been said
on WAIS about Sarah Palin until now.

Bienvenido Macario responds:

This is what I have observed with America's foreign policy and war in
the last hundred years: even after World War I America did not bother
to build an industrial complex based on war or the military. Even
though Marshall Foch looked at the Versailles Treaty "ending" World
War I as a cease fire and that will definite have France and Germany
at war again after 20 years.

So when World War II came America's military gear was practically all
imported from England. And the rest as they say is history.

It was not until after World War II, when America decided to keep and
maintain the so-called "military-industrial-congressional complex."

Surely we are not keeping this expensive toys for the 4th of July
parades and we don't have wars so that pretty boys and girls of
Hollywood could make movies about America's sons and daughters dying
in a foreign land as in World War II.

WAISer Tim Brown once wrote: "It is easy to maintain peace. Just give the
aggressor anything and everything they want." So if the Russians want
Georgia, give it to them and there will be peace. Sounds like
Czechoslovakia in 1938? Nope. America did not have the
military-industrial-congressional complex then. And Hitler knew it.

If I were an extra-terrestrial, I'd say humans are smart but forgetful
lot. The advances made in the last 200 years are astounding and
impressive. But the underlying principle of survival 2,000 years
remains the same: "If you want peace, prepare for war."

I'd write about the number-one cause of war in my next post. It's
ironic that if man cannot live in peace, he struggles to find an
excuse to die fighting for peace, huh?
