Veteran’s Day—NO one is fighting for our freedom

Every year I write something about Memorial Day. That is the day this country (United States) honors its vets. Since after World War II, the US fought the cold war and now it just fights to preserve a giant empire. It is such a large empire, for the first time in the history of the world, the US has built the largest empire since the Roman Empire.
Nothing has ever existed like this before. Every country in the world has to live with this empire trying to force its will on all the world’s countries. So far there are no other super powers that can rival the US Empire since the fall of the USSR.
In military terms, we know that roughly 750 military bases and installations staffed by American military personnel exist in approximately 130 countries around the world. We know that the United States accounts now for roughly two-fifths, 40 percent, of all military expenditures in the world. In strictly military terms, then, there never has been an empire as powerful as America under George W. Bush.
What few Americans realize is that our standing as the richest most powerful country in the world demands that those in weaker countries suffer without those things that we take for granted. We have the best in electronic devices—iphones-computers-etc. And we have the best motor-vehicles and cheapest gas of anywhere in the world.
We have an unlimited supply of water, food and electricity. Not everyone in the world has those things (see A Nicaraguan travelogue—First hand look at 3rd world poverty).

The Melian dialogue—by Thucydides –the city of Athenians and the people of Melos-Relevent Quotes:
”Since you know as well as we do that right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must"
And the biggest lie of all—“These people fight for your freedom—Freedom isn’t Fee!”
To which I state:
No one in the US is fighting for your FREEDOM!!  -
