Bombs Away In Syria, But Is Veterans Affairs Ready To Serve New Disabled Veterans Of World War 3?

Is the Department of Veterans Affairs ready to serve the new disabled veterans that will no doubt be created with a new conflict between US, Syria and Russia? I think we all can reasonably say the answer is a resounding "No." Just like Iraq, but despite massive increases in funding, VA is still not ready for the existing disabled veterans much less the new ones.

57

Now that Trump chose to bomb Syria, one of the next issues should be ensuring the Department of Veterans Affairs is equipped to handle the workload of new disabled veterans from World War 3.

Of course, we know the answer is a loud “No.”

VA is nowhere near ready for a new war much less a war with Russia, Syria and Iran, but since when have US presidents worried about ensuring services were ready for returning troops and newly minted disabled veterans.

I remember the run-up to the Iraq War, where Vice President Dick Cheney and the press (NY Times and practically everyone else) yelled about “yellow cake” and promised the war would be quick and cost less than $100 billion. Meanwhile, 17 years later, we now know the cost of caring for veterans alone will cost $1.3 trillion, and the war is projected at $4 trillion.

Neo-Cons have long sharpened their swords at the thought of sending a new round of young American soldiers into harms way in Syria while still failing to resolve other existing wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Anyone take a care to guess how much these additional wars might cost?

“A short time ago, I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad,” Trump said in a primetime televised speech to the nation.

“A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now underway. We thank them both. This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very terrible regime.”

US officials are supposedly directing their jets to strike chemical production facilities while other officials say a variety of targets were chosen for the show of aggression against Syria.

Trump said he warned Russia and Iran to abandon their ally while the US, France and Britain have their way with the country.

Of course, our fixation with that part of the world is nothing new. It seems probable that the oil contracts have already been drafted to justify pipe building in that country to expand production and markets to benefit Wall Street and Big Oil.

RELATED: Can I Lose My 100 Percent Disability?

Anyone notice gas prices start to climb right as Bolton was picked as the new Secretary of State?

We are now seeing the Neo-Con plan roll out in full swing as Trump also moves to include the US back into the Trans-Pacific Partnership. What a sell-out.

Remember the supposed yellow cake Saddam Husain did not have that NY Times and everyone else said he did have prior to the run-up to the Iraq War? It is all a joke that will be paid for on the backs of low and middle-class grandchildren. Surely, the 1 percent won’t pay a dime for this new war, but their military industrial complex sure will profit.

Anyway, if Trump really wanted to fix VA he could. Now that we are going into a new war, maybe its time to also demand full funding of VA before the DOD is allowed to replenish its bombs.

We cannot keep policing the world while our own country and those who do the policing suffer after the patriotic sentiment is gone.

“Anyway, if Trump really wanted to fix VA he could.“
Well, he really did, and he did.
He pushed for the new White House Veterans Complaint Hotline, didn’t he?
He would, if need be, pick up the phone himself, he said.
He said veterans would no longer fall through the cracks, didn’t he?
And, by God, he made it so.
Now, we’re hydraulically squirted through them.

I have contacted the new agency that Trump set up. Here is what happens. Contacted by someone in California. The person stated send everything to Washington .

They will but it into an e-mail to the person in California.

I asked the person in California, I have over 150 page’s of proof. Will the e-mail contain all the evidence I sent to Washington ? No ! They will pick it apart. Wait a minute, how can you work on a complaint if you do not have all the evidence.

Back and forth. Told rh would refer it to visn 19 to reply.

These are the very people doing the harm.

They really do not know what they are doing.

Have to have people who know what they are doing.

“They really do not know what they are doing.”
Actually, they really *do* know what they are doing: They are adding another official denial to our complaints, and making it that much harder for us to get anyone to understand that their latest denial rests on a foundation of bogus denials.

In January of 1991, I was the Combat Information Center Watch Supervisor aboard USS Leftwich (DD 984) when we fired our BGM-109’s against targets in Iraq. Happy Trails. When we came home, the VA was not ready for us.

In 2001, I was running with the Veterans for Common Sense crowd, and was a signatory along with Kris Kristofferson, several former Flag Officers, and over one-thousand veterans from Operations Desert Shield/Desert Storm of a letter to President Bush that detailed why the invasion of Iraq would be the wrong war at the wrong time for the wrong reasons.

As always, our political leadership never listens to those who have been there – – – and might actually have some real-world knowledge and experience, rather than a fancy certificate on the wall and cockamamie theories on the glories of war.

The scariest thing I heard remarked prior to “Gulf War Redux” came from a VA doctor named Roger Wong who personally remarked to me that “the VA is a whole lot better prepared now than we were in 1991”.

When our veterans returned, we all saw and experienced how prepared the VA was. The preparation level of the VA could have best been described as a clusterfuck.

It remains to be seen whether we will become embroiled in Syria on a larger scale for a sustained amount of time. I would not bet against it.

Some things never change. You may expect the VA to be as prepared for the return of the troops from Syria – – – as they were from Vietnam, Gulf War’s I and II.

Not at all. The VA will continue in perpetuity the practice of “Delay, Deny, Let our veterans Die . . .”

I see Raytheon stock futures went up and that makes for a steady Stairmaster cadence down at the swamp.

These animals call this a Holy War of Biblical implications. That’s the fervor these terrorists under guise of a hijacked religion are…but then again, I also see some local Christian denominations that are quite demonic and selective in their hate as well for those that do not believe exactly the way they do and guess what? These local fundamental types pray for death every day so they too, can go to their version of a ridiculous number of virgins…

…the real truth of matter is,
they are only scheduled for a ridiculous number of virgin goats in the heaven’s gate goat farm.

Meanwhile, the VA will remain utterly unprepared for the World War 3 casualties, but the employee parking spaces will be SO fucking secure….

In a mood this morning. Disappointed no nukes were used. Sand + thermonuclear fusion should be very interesting and maybe really pretty after all the fused glass fallout cools in 40,000 years. Even then, the remaining 6 Syrians and Israeli’s will continue fighting in their genetically mutated states in 40,000 years from now….

Myself, I’m just waiting for the aliens to get involved. They wrote all the so-called holy scriptures anyway, just waiting for the human stew to heat-up. VA won’t matter ever again.

It has often been asked on these pages, how do/does ___ (fill in) gather so many, so quickly, to march…? The easy answer is that the group has a grasp on the issue at hand.

Politics in itself, is not taught in our basic education system. It would be the rare American Government teacher that touches on political theory during that required course.

The average voter does not realize that all of this military spending has NOTHING to do with veterans situations. Speaker Ryan unintentionally brought this point sliding into home plate, during his interview on Thursday. To save your time, this is the one paragraph out of all of the fluff that I am referring to: “We have not yet won that debate. It’s gotta be more bipartisan. And– and I regret that it isn’t. But that’s you prevent a debt crisis. And I’m also very, very– and I’ve learned to spend a lot of time with the military since being speaker. We needed to rebuild our military. We were– people were dying in training accidents, 80 last year alone. And I’m very proud of the fact that we have rebuilt our military, our Veterans Administration, and this economy is growing. So I’m– I’m– I’m just pleased with that body of work.”. The transcript link: “https://www.cbsnews.com/news/paul-ryan-trump-stepping-down-cbs-interview-full-transcript-today-2018-04-12/”.

We know, that there has been diddly-squat done to improve long standing important basic veteran’s issues, and gizillions have been spent spoofing the public’s perception. This is no accidental oversight. Uncle employ’s many at outrageous salary’s to keep all of her voting citizens as mushrooms; Ya know feed ’em crap and keep ’em in the dark!

I think it behooves all of us to enlighten every voter of all age groups, in some gentle way, when the opportunity presents itself in daily conversations. That might be more beneficial for our cause, than putting efforts into gathering a bunch of broken bodies/hearts to march on D.C. at this point.

A couple of constructive suggestions for mass messaging are the old fashioned standby things like well written opinion pieces in the paper, or social media if that is your preference, and “man on the street” type of local tv news plugs. I’ll bet Stephen Colbert could find a way to present the difference between military spending and political spins that are CONFUSING Joe and Jane Citizen into believing that chunks of their hard earned money goes toward helping veterans.

Signals the beginning of the war to end all wars

@Warhorse- The VA will somehow get ‘baby showers’ gravely wrong. Brings to mind an old TV sitcom I loved called ‘WKRP in Cincinnati”, where on Thanksgiving, they thought it was a great promotional idea to airdrop huge amounts of turkeys from their weather helicopter, not realizing turkeys are only good a very short span flight, not from atop a building, let along a weather/traffic helicopter…many casualties in Cincy that Thanksgiving…and I see a potential correlation to the VA “sponsoring” baby showers…

Makes me want to put on some Alice Cooper this morning….

“…ranging for revenge, with Ate by his side come hot from hell, shall in these confines with a Monarch’s voice cry ‘Havok!’ and let slip the dogs of war.

Shakespeare. Julius Caesar. Act 3, Scene 1:

“Domestic fury and fierce civil strife
Shall cumber all the parts of Syria.
Blood and destruction shall be so in use,
And dreadful objects so familiar,
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quartered with the hands of war,
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds,
And Caesar’s spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch’s voice
Cry “Havoc!” and let slip the dogs of war,
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.”

In our “modern” times, we use “modern” English and geography – – – so:

“Fierce civil war will paralyze all of Syria. Blood and destruction will be so common and familiar that mothers will merely smile when their infants are cut to pieces by the hands of war. People’s capacity for sympathy will grow tired and weak from the sheer quantity of cruel deeds. And Vladimir Putin, searching for discord and revenge with Stalin’s Ghost by his side, just up from Hell, will cry in the voice of a king, “Havoc!” and unleash the dogs of war upon the United States. This foul deed will stink up to the sky with men’s corpses, which will beg to be buried rather than sent home for the VA to treat for the remainder of their lives . . .”

Soooooo, Assad was blamed the first time around for what the Obama formed rebels did, (use chemical weapons on the Syrian people), then, Assad was attacked by the U.S., and of course NATO, “cough, cough”, and now we are to believe this Assad character is stupid enough to invite more bombing, and missile attacks?

Very interesting indeed.

Nobody is questioning fighting to keep innocent children from suffering such a horrible death, I sure as hell am questioning who is at fault though. Assad would have to be one dumb son of a bitch to use chemical weapons, knowing what the fallout would be. Trust what our government tell us? Not in a million years.

But that might constitute a war crime, considering a VA is like an extermination camp.

I’ll check back in a couple of weeks to issue an apology if Russia declares war on the United States. I’ve usually found Ben to be pretty balanced in his politics, but the concern that this is the beginning of WWIII is hyperbolic, panicked rhetoric. We bombed Syria a year ago, and Russia and Iran rattled sabers a little — and that was all. We’ve maintained troops in Syria as well, and neither Russia, Iran, nor Assad has deemed them an invading force. I’m disappointed. I’ve come to expect a little more than knee-jerk, “the sky is falling” talking points from Ben Krause.

I’m definitely not in favor of another war, but I’m not okay with the use of chemical weapons on civilians, either. This is a tough call, and it was just a little more than a week ago when President Trump was discussing pulling the remaining “boots on the ground” out of Syria. Should we become isolationist and just leave the Middle East to the Russians, Iranians and ISIS? If not, then we’re going to do something besides telling them that we have drawn a “red line” that we are not prepared to enforce. The prior administration tried that, and Assad and Putin called Obama’s bluff.

Now, as to Ben’s assertion that the VA is not prepared to care for veterans of another war, I couldn’t agree more. It’s not taking care of us now. I also agree with his statement that Trump knows how to fix the VA. Everyone familiar with the agency and an IQ greater than that of an eggplant also knows.

Exactly James,, we all could write novels on who started what,, none of us have the time, or space, to fill these pages with who’s to blame for all the crap that is wrong in the world.

Like I pointed out above, I do not trust who says who is to blame for this chemical attack. Personally I think since Syria hasn’t been in the news, because of all the Russian collusion going on, (Just kidding), that these asswipe rebels needed a way to draw the U.S. further into this B.S. Who stands to gain the most from this attack on children, and other civilians, Assad, or the rebels?

Where is the world outcry for the number of woman, children and others, who have been raped 10 times a day before noon, beheaded, tortured and murdered? Oh, yes, that’s right, never mind, those are nothing but Christians…..move along, nothing to see here folks….

In answer to Ben’s question if the VA is prepared for a new batch of loyal saps, the answer is? Fuckin eh, they’re ready. Sheeeeeit. Donny Skidmark said so last night when he blessed our our brave dedicated American patriot men and women serving our great nation … oops – I just puked a little ….. dedicated to the preservation of freedom, liberty and democracy around the globe….

The rest of those great folks in Washington have their own extensive list of platitudes and accolades, and admirations, and DO NOT forget the ubiquitous prayers for their safety….. Gets me all flag wavy n’shit. But fear not, if it gets into a shooting war, I’m sure we’ll have plenty of America’s own Christian Taliban ready, willing and able to serve their God and Cuntry.

Hey – wait a sec – we haven’t heard a word about veterans. Damn. Well, I guess we know who the audience is. Those loyal veterans will never raise their voices during a time of WAR.

And speaking of religious wars. Have you ever wondered about the hows and whys of the similarities of the Muslim burka and hijab get-ups and the Catholic nun old school habits. Big old heavy cape/gown/robe/blanket thingies with a heavy duty head covering. Only difference is the Catholics spun their head-gear around backwards.

I can only imagine the decision making process who knows how many centuries ago. A bunch of priests sitting around after the latest religious war discussing how the Persians or Assyrians had all their women wearing this heavy duty shit, maybe thinking it was like armor or something. Then, one of the kiddie schtuppers had the great idea – “Hey – we could get our nuns to do the same thing”, and another puffter says, “ya, but it should be different, and another pedopopper suggests they flip the headgear around and sew up the flap. Hell ya.

When you think about it, the Catholics and Muslims have a lot in common. The breed like bunnies, demand impoverished obedience, and schtup their young’uns.

(Disclosure – Married the farmer’s daughter – she’s one of 13 – German Catholic, I acquiesced to raising our boys Catholic at St. Patricks in Hudson, WI – home of the murdering pedophile priest Father Ryan…. I earned my cynicism bitches)

Thus endeth today’s homily.

Almost:

So long mom, I’m off to drop a bomb, so don’t wait up for me.
And while you swelter, down there in your shelter.
You can see me, on your teevee.

Remember mommy,
I’m off to kill a commie
So send me a salami
And try to smile somehow.

I’ll sing to you when the war is over,
An hour and a half from nooooooow.

I still can’t decide if Trump really wanted to make change and the DC, career politicians (Dems, Republicans) made it clear to Trump that he better get in line with the “game” or be destroyed.

I mean, look at the timing of Trump back peddling and the heat being turned up on Cohen. Was the next move to start investigating each Trump son, daughter, wife, et.c until they can put them all in jail on “something” or they give up something to put Trump behind bars on something totally unrelated to an investigation into Russia interference with Hillary becoming president?

Or,

Is/was Trump just another “distraction” to keep us divided and preoccupied with scandal (remember Monica Lewinsky?) while the government robs us blind?

I mean, when I heard about the Syria chemical attack, I felt this was just like the Post Office (which is a financial drain on our taxpayes….when cutting out Saturday deliveries was proposed (cuz with online bill pay, magazines, etc. who uses the mail besides to get junk mail?) OMG, here comes the union and post office fighting back and now instead of removing Saturday delivery, Sunday delivery is ADDED and still the Post Office is hemorrhaging.

Same issue…Trump wants to pull out of Syria and someone tells Asad to make some drama. Anyone ever consider Asad doesn’t want us to back out either? I know, doesn’t make sense? Yes it does…cuz all the money that’ll get spent into “rebuilding Syria will not just be consumed by greedy contractors charging us $100 for a pen (and whom either have shares/campaign contributions related to some politician and/or relative of a politician) the money will go to Asad cronies who will put the money into a brief case and disappear….

Each country we get involved with becomes a profit to rebuild…follow the money.

And of course, nothing in the budget for the human casualties of these conflicts – our own service members….worse, the VA will fight you with every breath until you die and go away, but $100 pen from Contractor X…”Approved” without blinking an eye…
