"Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it." -John Adams


Welcome to Patriot's Lament. We strive here to educate ourselves on Liberty. We will not worry ourselves so much with the daily antics of American politics, and drown ourselves in the murky waters of the political right or left.
Instead, we will look to the Intellectuals and Champions of Liberty, and draw on their wisdom of what it is to be a truly free people. We will learn from where our Providential Liberties are derived, and put the proper perspective of a Free Individual and the State.
Please join us!

To U.S. soldiers

The ramp up to war with Syria is in high gear. The power crazed politicians mean to have war one way or the other. Under the pretense of an obvious false flag (the Syrian government using chemical weapons), the rulers of the American Empire are ready to kill. And they will. And innocent people who have done nothing to Americans will die at the hands of Americans.
But none of these crazed individuals in the U.S. government will fire a shot. None of them will.
They count on the American  soldier to kill for them, and to advance their agenda for the Middle East.
The argument that these weapons somehow threaten America is even more ridiculous than the lies made to get us into the Iraq war. The U.S. State lied to the whole world, and sent American soldiers there to kill for them, turning  America into the aggressor, and American soldiers killed innocent people that had done nothing to nor threatened the American people.
But Bush didn't fire a weapon. Cheney and Rumsfeld never fired a shot.
You, American soldier, did.


So today, you are being told that you will be sent to fight Syria. So I have to ask you, will you?

Are you going to kill Syrians that pose no threat to America? Is that why you joined the armed forces? When you gave your oath to the Constitution of the United States, did it mean anything to you? How is the Syrian "enemy" threatening America? How are the moms, dads, sons and daughters that are going to die a threat to you or the American people? And if they are not, how can you justify killing them?

America has fought a long war supposedly against our named enemy, Al-Qaeda. It is a known fact that the rebels fighting against the Syrian government are fighters, of Al-Qaeda. By attacking Syria, you will be directly helping Al-Qaeda, the very enemy your government has had you fighting for 12 years. Are you willing to do that? Wouldn't this be counter thinking to any sane person? Why have you been fighting Al-Qaeda only to help them now?
You, American Soldier, can refuse. You are the ones who have to pull the trigger, you can be the ones who say no. The American people are counting on you. People of the whole world are counting on you. Little kids in Syria are counting on you. If you don't, you, soldier, will be the ones responsible for killing innocent people, not your government, not Obama, not McCain, YOU. Yes you, even Americans are not immune from being war criminals.
You have a duty to say no, as the Nuremberg Trials showed. This will not be a Just War. This will just be a war.
Murder.
You do not have to continue to be fodder for the American Empire, which preys on your feelings of loyalty to your comrades to get you to do Its bidding.
Strike a real blow for freedom. Refuse to go. Refuse to attack Syria. The lovers of Liberty will stand with you. You officers in the military, it's time you actually lead. You know you have the Right to refuse un-Constitutional orders. You have a duty to refuse. Don't ask your men to be war criminals. History WILL judge you.

God will Judge you.

It's never Treason to do that which is Right.

Resolve to serve no more!

"All this havoc, this misfortune, this ruin, descends upon you not from alien foes, but from the one enemy whom you yourselves render as powerful as he is, for whom you go bravely to war, for whose greatness you do not refuse to offer your own bodies unto death. He who thus domineers over you has only two eyes, only two hands, only one body, no more than is possessed by the least man among the infinite numbers dwelling
in your cities; he has indeed nothing more than the power that you confer upon him to destroy you. Where has he acquired enough eyes to spy upon you, if you do not provide them yourselves? How can he have so many arms to beat you with, if he does not borrow them from you? The feet that trample down your cities, where does he get them if they are not your own? How does he have any power over you except through you? How would he dare assail you if he had no cooperation from you? What could he do to you if you yourselves did not connive with the thief who plunders you, if you were not accomplices of the murderer who kills you, if you were not traitors to yourselves? You sow your crops in order that he may ravage them, you install and furnish your homes to give him goods to pillage; you rear your daughters that he may gratify his lust; you bring up your children in order that he may confer upon them the greatest privilege he knows—
to be led into his battles, to be delivered to butchery, to be made the servants of his greed and the instruments of his vengeance; you yield your bodies unto hard labor in order that he may indulge in his delights and wallow in his filthy pleasures; you weaken yourselves in order to make him the stronger and the mightier to hold you in check. From all these indignities, such as the very beasts of the field would not endure, you can deliver yourselves if you try, not by taking action, but merely by willing to be free.
 Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break into pieces."
