The people of the USA have been programmed over the last century, to only think of our anthem and flag as it relates to the military. We have been conditioned for the past 65 years or so to associated our flag and anthem only with the military. The corporate elites have told us that we are enjoying our freedom as Americans because our military has fought for our freedom.Really! Which recent war did the US military fight in, which guarantee our freedoms as citizens of the USA?Was it the wars in Korea; Vietnam; Iraq; or the war in Afghanistan; the war on drugs; the war on poverty? Or maybe the military invasions during the 20th century of Grenada; Panama; Haiti; Nicaragua; Dominican Republic; the Philippines; Lebanon?Which one of these wars and military interventions in poor countries, guaranteed our freedom as American citizens?When was the last time any other nation threatened to invade the USA?
