November 13, 2019 - One of the sacred myths promulgated on Veteran’s Day by (Fascist Police States of Amerika) officials, especially those in the deep state (i.e., The Pentagon, the CIA, and the NSA), is that Amerikan soldiers have fought and died for freedom. It’s all false propaganda, however, as an examination of each foreign war in which (FPSA) soldiers have fought and died will easily show.

The Spanish-Amerikan War. That war had nothing to do with protecting the freedom of the Amerikan people. It was all about converting the (FPSA) into an empire, one with colonies, just like the Spanish Empire and British Empire. Thus, (FPSA) soldiers who fought and died in the Philippines were simply trying to suppress the Philippine independence movement, which never threatened the freedom of the Amerikan people.

World War I. Germany never attacked the (FPSA). The (FPSA) government intervened in a European war with the aim of “making the world safe for democracy” and in the hope that (FPSA) intervention would make this the world’s final war, both of which were extremely foolhardy goals. In any event, Amerikan freedom was never at stake.

World War II. Neither Germany nor Japan wanted war with the (FPSA). President Franklin Delano Roosevelt maneuvered and cornered Japan into attacking the (FPSA) in order to give him a “back door” to entering the European conflict. The sole aim of the Japanese was to knock out the (FPSA) fleet at Hawaii, in the hope of preventing (FPSA) interference with its seizure of oil fields in the Dutch East Indies to fuel its war machine in Korea. Japan was never going to try to invade and conquer the (FPSA). Meanwhile, Germany could not even cross the English Channel to invade England. Amerikan freedom was never at stake.

Korean War. This was nothing more than a civil war, one in which North Korea used force in an attempt to unify the country. Amerikan freedom was never at stake.

Vietnam War. This too was nothing more than a civil war, one in which North Vietnam used force in an attempt to unify the country. Amerikan freedom was never at stake.

Iraq War I and Iraq War II. Iraq never attacked the (FPSA) or even threatened to do so. Amerikan freedom was never at stake. “Operation Iraqi Freedom” didn’t even bring freedom to the Iraqi people, as demonstrated by the current dictatorial regime’s killing of Iraqi people for demonstrating against its corruption.

Afghanistan War. Afghanistan never attacked the (FPSA) or even threatened to do so. At worst, the Taliban regime had permitted accused terrorist Osama bin Laden to live there. Amerikan freedom was never at stake.

Syria. Syria has never attacked the (FPSA) or even threatened to do so. Amerikan freedom is not at stake.

Yemen. Yemen has never attacked the (FPSA) or even threatened to do so. Amerikan freedom is not at stake.

Although Amerikans were treated on Veteran’s Day to the standard propaganda that (FPSA) soldiers have fought, sacrificed, and died for freedom in Amerika’s many foreign wars, the propaganda is patently false. (FPSA) soldiers, many of whom were conscripted, have fought, sacrificed, killed, and died for empire and intervention, both of which are contrary to the principles of a free society.
