NOT CONSIDER MYSELF AN ACADEMIC JUST SOMEONE SELF EDUCATED BY PUBLIC
SCHOOLS AND EXPERIENCE OF LIFE AND MY EXPLORATION OF THE NOVELS,
DOCUMENTS, FILMS ETC. OF OUR TIME. I claim the title of Historian, and the accumulated facts and figures I deem reliable, form the basis of my opinions.
League of Nations and the United Nations were
and are attempts to end wars of conquest. American hands are not
clean, the Indian reservations are concentration camps formed for
entire nations of people, clearly as advanced as we white 'settlers'
but deemed “in the way”; Hitler made the statement in “Mein Kampf” that he deemed the conquest of eastern territory was akin to
the American (actually U.S.) regard for 'redskin Indians'.
A interesting video I just saw today and don't have a clue of its credence but is well made:
WAR IS A RACKET

Versailles Treaty may have been heavy handed but the sense of
outrage at the treatment of civilians at German hands (and the record
of ruthlessness in WWI by the Wehrmacht is clear,) in the age
of wire serviced newspapers, photographs, motion pictures and radio. Television and now the

the truth of the senses, those days are over; there is no dedicated
ideological movement to transform or overthrow our constitutional
form we live in. Think on that. The organized movement abroad to
reinstate the caliphate of former days by fractional numbers of
Muslim humanity has been the danger we face today, the beheading
purposely presented to the public—the plotting of terror, I have
read is the tactic of the impotent. The need for understanding,
respect for one another, and acceptance of difference is still
important. The welfare state is over, Obamacare is run by private
corporations, it is the attempt to make medical care available in a
sensible nuts and bolts method instead of making the insured minority
pay for the uninsured majority which bancrupted GM. Can we eliminate
greed, or can we just see how we are formed and fitted together alike

I appreciate all the family support, we lost two dear relations, J.O. Purcell and Laura Stafford, Uncle Robert Jr.'s girl he used to call 'Suzy'; i never knew it was a nickname, all four of his kids had nicknames, maybe all those years as a Master Sergeant in the Army has something to do with that.
