The “Art of War”

To begin this discussion, I am going to use this phrase,

“There are no innocents in war.”

Now, the people on the outside of the military “machine” will be coming un-glued. I happen to agree with this phrase. When the military is hindered by the masses screaming about the “innocents” they cannot perform the job set before them. Obstacles and road blocks can mean the difference between life and death on the field. To those who came un-glued about the phrase used, let me clarify the phrase a bit more by adding that there are casualties of war; not innocents. It is their side versus your side. Casualties of war are very disheartening, but it is a fact of war.

History tends to repeat itself. If we look at past wars, note how they all ended up. The military has things moving at a decent pace until the bean counters and public become involved. After that the wars drag out and become worse, with nobody really winning. To be at war is to lose from the start. If you cannot handle the war process, then you should not go in to begin with. War is very ugly and messy. When a soldier leaves to go to war, they are never the same. It does not matter who is at war or if it is man, woman, or child in the war. The reality changes and scars everyone forever.

Let us look at it this way. If you play a video game, sure you can kill everything in sight and it’s cool and sometimes funny, right? Well, war is no video game, so just because you can push buttons and use a controller does not mean you know what it is like to be in war. Even the gang bangers who cowardly shoot another and run, or torture, think they are tough and know all about things. They do not have a clue, but they are closer than a video game player. In war, not only does one have to face down an enemy, sometimes hidden, but the smells associated, the grueling time spent in combat mode, the sounds, screams, the visual images burned forever in a person’s mind, and way much more are what military personnel have to deal with. The psycological damage is immense for all.

Military personnel have to train and prepare for everything. It is their only means of survival. When war is declared, military is sent out on a mission. If they cannot complete their missions, the war will fall and become disasterous. I am dedicating this blog to all of the military personnel who put their lives on the line so the citizens can enjoy the freedoms held so dear. Anyone who disrespects the military ought to be ashamed of themselves.

When speaking of the casualties of war, I now turn to victims. The enemy does not see women or children as victims, but rather as weapons to commence their attacks or shielding. Our country, fortunately, is not like this. These cowardly type combatants will strap bombs onto young children and send them out promising they will be doing the greater good. They have been raised to believe this. When they are not using their women and children as bombs, they will strategically place them in areas they know will be attacked. Then everyone believes that it is the military’s fault and they are monsters. It is the cowardly combatants who are the monsters, not the military.

The military is just like everyone. They do not want to kill and they will try to avoid it if possible. However, if it means killing another to save many, they will not hesitate. Many of the combatants cannot be reasoned with. This is what mainstream does not seem to understand. Do you really believe that the plane hijackers who flew into the twin towers would have been able to be detered from their mission? Do you believe they felt for any possible women, children, or good people in those buildings, the pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania? The bean counters most likely would say yes. The true answer is no. The passengers who fought back could be considered as military heros for their roles in trying to deter the take overs. They were definitely brave heros.

In closing, people need to learn exactly what the “art of war” is. Do some research and see what is involved on every level. Remember this when the military return home. Try to understand what they have been through for you to be able to go about your every day life. Please show the troops respect because you know what? They deserve respect. They do not deserve the jeers and being denied access or being spit on or ignored. Here is something for everyone to ponder. Where would you be if there was no military to protect the citizens and fight for what is believed?
