“Act of Valor” Will Make Us All Forget

It’s a shame that the U.S servicemen and women have deteriorated their global image by burning Qurans and urinating on deceased enemy soldiers. It’s okay though, “Act of Valor” will make us all forget about that, right? I mean that’s the whole point of the long-shot image rejuvenating film is it not? I for one will not go see this pathetic attempt at film as it fails to improve how the world sees the U.S military, while making every current serviceman feel significant and worldly.

Don’t get me wrong here people, I understand that the United States of America would not be where it is now without the courageous efforts and sacrifices of our Armed Forces. However I tend to be pessimistic when it comes to how the world views our actions as the “world police”. But for every marine, every army ranger and every navy seal, my heart goes out to you and your actions. However I can also honestly say that I think everyone knows at least one person who has been ” superior ” or “badass” compared to yourself when recalling that they were apart of the glorious armed forces. Meat heads, jarheads, thugs, degenerates in my opinion. And that’s the glory of it all really, here i can sit spilling my slanted opinions of the U.S armed forces while they defend my very right of expression. Hoo-Rah

    That’s the crazy part though, is we don’t really defend freedom, we defend the government.  Take 9/11 for example; after that attack, we didn’t declare war on al Qaeda, or on the Taliban, or on Afghanistan or anything.  We instead declared a “War on Terror” so whoever the government deems to be a terrorist, whether it be some middle eastern extremist, a member of “Anonymous”, or just some random guy who’s political views aren’t those of the government, has had war declared upon them.  They have in effect declared war on an idea, and you can never fully kill an idea.

    Furthermore, the government to whom the troops pledge their lives to defend has been systematically eroding the rights of the american people since it’s creation.  The latest example which has received limited media attention is House Resolution 347 (link below) which effectively nullifies the peoples right to peacefully protest at the White House and at any other location where any person who is under the protection of the Secret Service may be visiting.

    So let the American public go get their fill of glorified war, and let them go to sleep at night believing they live in the greatest country in the world, while their money is made worthless and their government makes them into slaves.  The proud American will go down into slavery without a fight, beating his chest, and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is.  The world will only snicker.

    Safety and Peace
