Dying well at the hands of a despot

The 6 U.S. Soldiers Who Died Searching for Bowe Bergdahl

Was it worth it?

“Was it worth it? Absolutely,” – Jen Psaki, White House Communications Director

Yes I took Psaki out of context. She had no concern for the 6 dead soldiers. She was referring to the Gitmo 5.

Five of the Most Dangerous Taliban Commanders in U.S. Custody Exchanged for American Captive

So I’ll put it in context for her. President Obama feels it was worth it for 6 American soldiers to die, 5 of the most dangerous Taliban Commanders to be freed as part of his agenda to empty out Gitmo, and all in exchange for a deserter who at best sympathized with and at worst conspired with the enemy.

Agendas from ideologues come at a very heavy price. For some, it costs their lives. Just ask the families of the 4 dead Americans in Benghazi. Just ask the families of the 30 dead Americans who died when their Chinook helicopter was shot down after Obama irresponsibly outed SEAL Team 6 so he could take credit and seek praise for killing Osama bin Laden. Just ask the families of American journalists James Foley, Steven Sotloff and aid worker Kayla Meuller who died at the hands of ISIS swords when Obama sat on British intelligence for a month before acting because he didn’t trust the intel even though it came from an ally.

Perhaps you could ask the families of the countless thousands who have died as Obama has forced regime change in Libya and Egypt to promote the Muslim Brotherhood. Or ask the families of the collateral damage from Obama directed airstrikes and drone strikes of an enemy he refuses to call by name so that a vague War on Terror becomes one of political expediency rather than identifying and destroying an enemy of America.

Yes indeed, blood spilled for the convenience of an agenda is very expensive. Was it worth it? Just ask the families of the dead. Dying for country or liberty or family or God? That’s dying well. Dying for a despot? Charlie Chaplin has the answer.

Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes – men who despise you – enslave you – who regiment your lives – tell you what to do – what to think and what to feel! Who drill you – diet you – treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate – the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!
