There is no Justice for the Loser

In 1968/69, I was an advisory team leader (not Special Forces) to the 748 Montagnard Regional Forces Company at Ngo Trang, a few miles north of Kontum, in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. The mountain tribesmen, these "montagnards", mostly led by their Special Forces advisors, accounted for over half of all ground combat intelligence in Vietnam. They saved thousands of American lives. When the war ended, we abandoned them, in order to conduct our profitable trade relationship with our former enemies. Rome remained powerful for many centuries by remaining faithful to her allies. As a nation, and now, as an empire, we seem to have forgotten this important secret. Please click here for information about America's abandoned allies:

War enriches only those who are already wealthy beyond the dreams of avarice. For our misguided youth, it is about pursuing an illusory fantasy of heroism, fed by erronious information about an ever changing menu of "evil" men, "repugnant" religious heresies, and "criminal" nations, whose citizens are falsely portrayed as somehow less than human.

Peace is the Precondition for Justice, and Defeat brings Injustice

After the end of World War I, in a speech given at St. Louis on September 11, 1919, President Woodrow Wilson said: "Why, my fellow citizens, is there any man here, or any woman - let me say, is there any child here - who does not know that the seed of war in the modern world is industrial and commercial rivalry? ... This war, in it's inception, was a commercial and industrial war. It was not a political war. (The Economic Consequences of the Peace, by that renowned British economist, John Maynard Keynes - 1919, page 30)

In summing up his analysis of World War I, Keynes continued: "The politics of power are inevitable, and there is nothing very new to learn about this war or the end it was fought for: England has destroyed, as in each preceding century, a trade rival".

After the war was over, a defeated Germany pleaded in vain to be allowed to import wheat, fats, condensed milk, etc, but their plea was rejected. As a direct consequence, in Bohemia in February 1919, 20 percent of the babies were born dead, and 40% died within the first month of birth. Only in March 1919, when Lord Plumer, commander of the British Army of the Rhine informed the British government that his soldiers were unable to endure the spectacle of starving children, was the blockade partially relaxed. ("Unfinished Victory", Arthur Bryant, 1940, as cited in "The Conduct of War", by J.F.C. Fuller, 1992, First Da Capo press edition, page 217)
