D-Day and the Greatest Generation (Of “Whoremongers”)

In a review of Mary Louise Roberts’s 2013 book, What Soldiers Do: Sex and the American GI in World War II France, Laurence Vance writes about the “Greatest Generation” of U.S. soldiers who invaded Normandy, France on “D-Day” and who “liberated” the French from Nazi occupation. Apparently, those U.S. soldiers were mainly motivated by their sexual desires. “Romance, prostitution, and rape.”

Here is an excerpt of the review:

What Soldiers Do begins with an introduction and ends with a conclusion. In each case, the port city of Le Havre in Normandy is mentioned. In the introduction we read that in 1945, a year after D-Day, thousands of American GIs in Le Havre were waiting for a boat home. The mayor of the city penned a letter to the American regional commander complaining that “the good citizens of his city were unable to take a walk in the park or visit the grave of a loved one without coming across a GI engaged in sex with a prostitute.” At night, “drunken soldiers roamed the street looking for sex, and as a result ‘respectable’ women could not walk alone.” “Scenes contrary to decency” were taking place “day and night.” In the conclusion we read that “GIs were emboldened to believe the nation was theirs for the taking.” In garrison towns like Le Havre, the GI’s “disregard for French social norms meant they had public sex with prostitutes and assaulted women on the streets.”

According to the author, What Soldiers Do “explores how sex was used to negotiate authority” between the United States and France. It focuses on the “three kinds of sex between GIs and French women during the US military presence: romance, prostitution, and rape.” These subjects make up the three sections of the book. The book concludes with almost 80 pages of notes, including many French sources, followed by a very detailed index.

Roberts explains that “with very few exceptions the GIs had no emotional attachment to the French people or the cause of their freedom.” The Normandy campaign was billed as “an erotic adventure.” Sexual fantasies about France motivated “the GI to get off the boat and fight.” However, “such fantasies also unleashed a veritable tsunami of male lust.” Once aroused, “the GI libido proved difficult to contain.” Roberts maintains that “sex was fundamental to how the US military framed, fought, and won the war in Europe.” She contends that “this book presents GI sexual conduct as neither innocent of power nor unimportant in effect.” Military historians, including Stephen Ambrose, “have largely ignored the sexual habits of American soldiers.”

Of course, the way I see it, there wouldn’t have been a World War II and a rise of a Hitler had Woodrow Wilson not decided to needlessly take the U.S. into World War I which extended that war and caused all sorts of further problems.

False Flag in Persian Gulf: Points to Washington Warmongers, No?

Donald Trump seemed to please a lot of antiwar people during the 2016 campaign with his somewhat antiwar rhetoric. And I believe he was sincerely questioning and criticizing the wars that the Bushes and Cheneys started, especially in Iraq. But sadly Trump is very easily manipulable and “psy-opped” by the generals and other military bureaucrats as well as the “intelligence” operatives who it turns out are not that intelligent. So, the warmongers of the military and “intelligence” community who have media consulting gigs and are on the boards of the military contractors a.k.a. “merchants of death” are able to bamboozle Trump into believing that entities abroad are “threats” when in actuality it is our “defense” i.e. belligerence apparatus in Washington that are the real threat.

Former Reagan budget director David Stockman has a great article now about the farce of “Iran attacking oil tankers in the Persian Gulf,” which once again points to the aggressors of Washington who are literally psychopaths with delusions of grandeur. Stockman gives a very good historical perspective to this fiasco.

Now, why would Iran attack a Japanese oil tanker right during the time that Japan’s Shinzo Abe is in Iran meeting the Iranian leaders to discuss Japan’s buying Iranian oil? (That is, if moron dictator Trump and the neocon Iran-haters would lighten up on their criminal sanctions and thus would allow Iran to have economic trades with other countries…)

Abe has said that Trump officials have not provided adequate proof that Iran was behind the oil tanker attacks (because there is none).

The anti-Iran stuff from Warshington is mixed in with the warmongers’ love of Israel, our 51st state. The anti-Iran crusade, going on for decades now, is all about Israel, when any issue involves the Middle East, the Persian Gulf or Iran.

And we know that John Bolton and Mike Bombpeo are warmongers. But now after reading this article by Jon Basil Utley, now I see that the U.S. Secretary of Belligerence Pompeo is a so-called “Christian Zionist,” apparently. I didn’t know that before. He supposedly believes in the “End Times,” or “Armageddon” and the “Rapture.” Yikes.

You see, one main view of many Christian Zionists is that when the End Times arrive, the Jews will convert to Christianity in order to be “saved.” Christian Zionists who believe in “End Times” and the “Rapture” generally hope to see Jews convert to Christianity, and that is why such “Christians” are such fanatical supporters of Israel. No wonder they love Nutty-Yahoo so much.

Some Misc. Items

I have not had enough time these days to write like I would like to do. So, I have been posting links to other articles. I hope to get back to my regular writing when I have more time. It’s really time consuming to write a post or article. It really is.

In the meantime, regarding the accusations against Iran that they hit the oil tankers in the Persian Gulf, don’t listen to liars Donald Trump, John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, who looks like he could lose a few hundred pounds. No, seriously, Napalmpeo Pompeo et al. are drooling warmongers who seem to just want to bomb the hell out of other countries that are of NO threat to us whatsoever. That is what they did to Iraq and Afghanistan, and Vietnam. I’ll bet they sing John McCain’s song, “Bomb Bomb Bomb, Bomb Bomb Iran,” and so on. But, according to Antiwar.com, it appears that the Japanese ship owner contradicts the fatso U.S. bureaucrats on that tanker attack. Warmonger bureaucrats are liars!
