Memorial Day 2018—honoring those who fought for imperialism
By SJ Otto
It's this time every year that I post something about Memorial Day. And every year I hear on the TV that we should celebrate the lives given for our freedom. But the idea that people are giving their lives for freedom is the biggest lie this country ever produced. We have not had our freedom defended for many years. Most wars allow our empire to control smaller countries, so we can get the best of their resources, including oil.
We have colonized two countries, Iraq and Afghanistan. We have created in them puppet US style democracies. This country can't take care of its own citizens and yet claims to be able to "help out" our brothers in other countries. If this country really cared about democracy we would have pulled support for Saudi Arabia years ago.
That there are those of us who believe this country does not fight for democracy and freedom is the BIGGEST secret in the country today!
