Continuous Wars

(Cartoon: Khalil Bendib /

"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives." 

                                                                                      Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler, United States Marine Corps (1881-1940)

Wars are more than very expensive in lives and money. (Ask a veteran or teacher whose support has been cut because it is "unaffordable.")

The longer they are the the less effective wars become. We clearly lost the two longest wars in the history of the United States - Vietnam and Afghanistan. The more time that goes by  the more we become tolerant of corrupt dictators abusing their people because they are on "our" side and the more we use the false "sunk cost" argument that if we have sacrificed this much money and lives, we can't pull out now. We straight out lost in both Vietnam and Afghanistan - not just the war but many lives (ours and innocent civilians), trillions of dollars that could have been used to help our infrastructure, our world wide reputation for competence, and decades of time. After half a century of these fruitless wars we seemed to waste no time before jumping into the Ukraine War.

Further, these wars result in the loss of civil rights, especially recently. In our history there have been times when civil rights have been suspended, such as the Civil War and World War II, but they have always been during the War only and some sort of due process remained. What we have now is a situation worse by both the length - well over ten years - and extent of deprivation of constitutional rights. As Hunter S. Thompson said on  9/12/2001: “The towers are gone now, reduced to bloody rubble, along with all hopes for peace in our time, in the U.S. or any other country. Make no mistake about it: we are at War now- with somebody- and we will stay at war with that strange and mysterious enemy for the rest of our lives.” See also Civil Rights

The reason I have so many references is to show this is a steadily increasing trend that I continuously update. It is not a vanishing blip on the radar. Failure to deal with this trend will have disastrous consequences for the future. (A particularly useful source of documentation on war is Oliver Stone's documentary The Untold History of the United States

A modest first step is following the clear intention of the United States Constitution in requiring a declaration of war before engaging in extended combat operations. Another step is to consult with  the the UN Security Council. We agreed and are bound by  by international law requiring that they  authorize military action. See also A Legal Framework for Just Military Action.

Comments which are verified by Wikileaks and reporters in the field are that there were never more than a few hundred Taliban in Afghanistan and much of their support comes from Pakistan which we have given billions of dollars to over the years. Wikileaks and on the ground correspondents also have documented the utter corruptness of both Iraq and Afghanistan. Is this worth even more of our national treasure as well as the irreplaceable lives of our soldiers and sailors?

We should not forget the Israeli war against Gaza and corresponding war crimes we are largely financing with now up to over four billion dollars every year or 11 million dollars every day. A good summary is the article Continuing Middle East War Crimes by Isaac Saul. See also the YouTube video Honest Government Ad | Israel & GazaTargeting civilians is wrong no matter who does it. War crimes are equally wrong if done by the United States as exposed by Julian Assange, by Israel, or by Hamas. Many believe it is a right based upon who is doing it. See also references 170, 191, 194, 227, 237, 248, 256, 257, 258, 259, 262, 263, 266, 273, 281-302, 309-347, 362, 374-381, 384, 401-407, 433, 459-470, 488, 516-534, 576, 581-587, 626, 627, 654-660, 751-762, 924-934, 963-991, 1018, 1019, 1049, 1094-1105, 1131, 1138, 1139, 1158, 1161, 1196-1201, 1295.

In the Naval War College two basic questions are "What is the threat?" and "What is the appropriate force or other means to handle the threat?" Our expenditure of money, lives, and wear and tear on the military is completely out of balance with a small number of terrorists. Also usually missing is a real (not pretend) exit plan. 

We should ask ourselves bluntly if we are doing precisely what the terrorists want us to. In 2004 Osama bin Laden said frankly in a videotape their strategy was to “provoke and trap.” “All we have to do is…raise a piece of cloth on which is written ‘Al Qaeda” in order to make the generals race there, to cause America to suffer human, economic, and political losses.” (1)

We should do our homework first, know what the threat is, weigh options of using other countries and other means, and be very reluctant to enter any military conflict. Certainly we have an international interest, there are activities that only the United States can do, and nobody is advocating eliminating the military. But we are not all powerful and must consider our actions first. As Fareed Zakaria said, “Washington has to move out of the eighth century A.D. adjudicating claims between Sunnis and Shias in Baghdad, and move into the twenty-first century – to China, India, Brazil – where the future is being made.” (2)

The United States exerted a great deal of influence through the Marshall plan after World War II by influencing other countries to engage in mutually beneficial economic policies. It has cut down greatly on economic help to rely increasingly on war activities. China meantime has engaged with much success in a "Belt and Road" initiative similar to the Marshall Plan. See China's Trillion Dollar Plan to Dominate Global Trade.

Is getting involved in the very serious business of starting a war right or wrong dependent solely on whether it is a republican or democrat who starts it? Obama, Trump, and Biden and almost everyone in congress on both sides of the aisle cheerily act as if that is the sole criterion. War may be acceptable as a last resort, but it is past time we ended the decades long practice of both major parties of having it be our first resort to gain political popularity.

Two recommended books follow.

  • Moyn, Samuel Humane: How the United States Abandoned Peace and Reinvented War  Captain Byron (U.S. Navy retired) in his review of this book said that Moyn presents with considerable evidence that “This country likes war. It relies overwhelmingly on war. Forever War.”
  • Whitlock, Craig The Afghanistan Papers: A Secret History of the War  Captain Byron (U.S. Navy retired) in his review of this book correctly describes “an Army and three presidential administrations more interested in happy talk than honest appraisal.” The United States failed badly in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan and we should take a hard look at what happened before we get involved again.

We should not forget the following standards  we imposed upon Germany.

DECLARATION of the NUREMBERG WAR CRIMES TRIBUNAL    "Individuals have international duties which transcend the national obligations of obedience. Therefore individual citizens have the duty to violate domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace and humanity from occurring."

A good example of failing foreign policy causing war is the YouTube video Why Haiti is Dying & the DR is Booming.

This is almost unbelievable until one realizes that this country is no longer a government of and by and for the people! Government services have decreased drastically: homelessness has increased, salaries of so many don’t cover basic needs, free food programs have increased for so many that don’t have the money to buy sufficient food for their families, the price of everything for the 99% has increased tremendously! Making a profit for the top 1% plus huge corporations have become a priority. The 99% have become “slaves” to such a system. Military bases around the world are more important than the 99%!
