Politicians. They get in power— whatever country they lead, and none of us have any idea the pressures they face, and the decisions they have to make in times of war.
We don’t know—so much is kept from us.
The night I laid the book down, I dreamt about going into an apartment, and right in the foyer, I saw a bulldog, panting–looking up at me helplessly, while he was holding up his front leg, which was missing the bottom half—-no paw, no foreleg…and blood from the bitten- off leg was dripping on the floor profusely. At his feet, was the head of another dog, which had been torn completely off. No body anywhere. The other dog had attacked him.
The bulldog looked up at me in complete shock, sadness and confusion. Ah —the pity. To much of the world, America IS a bulldog.
And that’s war. One side gets attacked, the other side fights back, and wins, but at a tremendous cost.
And so, our leaders have to take into account so many variables. How exactly do you fight a war or even stop it? While Germany was burning, Hitler sent out small boys and old men to fight, rather than give up. Japan, we see, did the same. Iran, would be no different.
The leaders of England just before bombing Dresden, had a meeting. Churchill and his generals, gave this rationalization on the price they had from the first World War, and their final decision in the bombing of innocent civilians:
The most deadly fact was not the numbers slaughtered but that all these millions were in the main young men in the prime of life who had not yet had time to marry and have families What had been destroyed was the future as well as the present. The ghastly logic withal this selective carnage of the trenches was the very worst injury which nations could inflict upon themselves and upon each other. Aerial bombardment of cities even into its most indiscriminate for, would be far less damaging. It would kill or maim a nearly equal proportion of each element of the populations the women equally with the men, the young equally with the old, the weak equally with the strong, the sick equally with the fit. From such a bloodletting there might be a recovery whereas to kill for the second time in a century the best of the young men in their prime but without issue would doom Western civilization. There would be no hope. All the combatant nations must decline.
So, while the feminists have tried to erase the men as being, not so important…, to lose your men, means that Western Civilization would disappear.
And who has the most men in the world? China. The Muslims are not far behind.
It does make you think.
