How soon we forget

Assad is not using chemical weapons on his own people. He is using them on those people who are trying to oust him from office. In our Civil war we fought and killed other Americans, including women and children, who were only trying to get out of a contract (Constitution) that in essence bound them to the Northern mercantile states through taxes. In the Spanish American War we attacked Cuba over the sinking of the Maine which turned out to be a self inflicted accident. In World War I we exposed American soldiers to mustard gas and when the war was over did not punish the loser's leaders by charging them with crimes against humanity. In World War II we bombed "innocent" civilians unmercifully often using phosphorus bombs on targets within Germany. We dropped two atomic weapons on Japan killing hundreds of thousands of "innocent" civilians. In World War II our troops used flame throwers on the enemy. When the Chinese we aided to oust the Japanese were under onslaught by members of their own population under Mao Tse Tung, we lifted not a finger in support, not because our forces were spent but because we had no commercial interest to protect. In Korea we chased the North Koreans back, including their Chinese supporters but failed to stop the Chinese from aiding their surrogates. In Viet Nam we used "agent orange" to destroy the food supply of the North Vietnamese but when they fled to Laos we failed to follow for fear to win would remove our dependents need for us.

After World War I the powerful nations of the World got together and established the Geneva Convention that changed the rules of war. Germany signed on to those rules and the demilitarization they required as a part of the agreement. The punishment (reparation payments) imposed on Germany resulted in several changes in government until finally Adolph Hitler came to power and the payments were stopped with Germany in a shambles but free of foreign debt. Hitler, in order to get his country out of bankruptcy and back into the black sold bonds to do so. Where do you think he got the money? American banks who sold them to the American public because banks have no money of their own, only the money given them by their depositors.

Things look quite a bit different when you know the full story, which the Progressives don't want you to know because it would expose them as hypocrites. Its easier to do what you are told so long as it benefits.

The saying goes, he who has the gold makes the rules. If that is the case, why are those with the gold telling you that you should buy gold as a hedge on the future? Its because they have changed the rule and it now is he who has the dollars makes the rules.

What exactly is your point?

What exactly is your point? That because we used chemical/nuclear weapons that it was ok for Assad to use them (if he indeed did)?

Or that we should all be selling gold because it's been on a 3 month bull run?

My point is that everything I

My point is that everything I have stated in the above is true. If you fail to see the hypocrisy that is now the case you are unfortunate. If however you join in the hierocracy you will be fortunate, until those who finance the hypocrites run out of money to buy your loyalty.

Just because chemical weapons

Just because chemical weapons have been used in the past by the United States and we abhor them now does not make us hypocritical - it means we've made an attempt to learn from our mistakes.

We used to have slaves but no longer condone slavery - that's not hypocrisy, it's evolution.

Slavery isn't dead, it just

Slavery isn't dead, it just pays better. Anyone who sells his time for someone else's profit is a slave. The Negros who were brought here against their will were captives of the tribes who saw profit in not killing them. The were sold for profit and their time was utilized by their southern masters in exchange for food, clothing and shelter. When you voluntarily or of necessity sell your time to someone who profits from it you are no less bound to that position than the unpaid slaves of the old South. Lincoln did not free the slaves, he only refused to enforce the law that bound those who harbored them to return them to their masters.

It was the cotton gin that eliminated the need for slave labor and instead of being free, those who lost their jobs as slaves were turned loose to fend for themselves. Thomas Jefferson and his successors didn't know what to do with them and did nothing, leaving those in the south to retain what few they needed and instead of having room and board they either migrated where they became the prey of the Indians or lived where they were in squalor and discriminated against. They were excess to need, just as millions of Brazilians and Indians live in Brazil and India and hence live in squalor, beg when they can and scavenge the garbage heaps of the cities for food and anything they might sell to buy it.

I keep trying to get people to think for themselves but the Progressives have beaten the thinking out of you in their public indoctrination centers so you no longer think for yourselves and can only parrot what half truths they tell you.

We didn't learn from our mistakes, we took those actions deliberately because the rule of war is kill or be killed and everyone else knows it but us.
