Warwick MarflittHey Mike thanks for the input. The United States didn't sign The Hague Convention of 1899? How much copper do you save from making a million hollow vs solid point? The Accountants have been fiddling the figures! So can you get an exemption from Wars and suffering? Maybe swap them for some Peace, fellowship and understanding? It's really important to kill game quickly and humanly and good bullet design is paramount to achieve that. A good bullet for war would be no bullet! You should be arrested for declaring war and get medals for avoiding them.
In the Book "War is a Racket" written in 1935 by 2 time Medal of honour recipient Major General Smedley Darlington Butler. He had some eye popping statistics for companies war profits ( as a congressman he had access to companies tax returns)[the 1st whistle blower?] and ideas to take the profits out of War? One being that the children of the business owners and politicians get front line postings! And all citizens of age that will be asked to fight and die have the final vote for or against the War? Its a fantastic book that you would be wise to read? He foresaw WWII mentioning Hitler, Mussolini Europe, Japan, Philippines and China! And comments on trade deals, and international tampering. Things that we're still seeing today.
Excerpt from chapter 1
Yes, all over, nations are camping in their arms. The mad dogs of Europe are on the loose. In the Orient the maneuvering is more adroit. Back in 1904, when Russia and Japan fought, we kicked out our old friends the Russians and backed Japan. Then our very generous international bankers were financing Japan. Now the trend is to poison us against the Japanese. What does the "open door" policy to China mean to us? Our trade with China is about $90,000,000 a year. Or the Philippine Islands? We have spent about $600,000,000 in the Philippines in thirty-five years and we (our bankers and industrialists and speculators) have private investments there of less than $200,000,000.
Then, to save that China trade of about $90,000,000, or to protect these private investments of less than $200,000,000 in the Philippines, we would be all stirred up to hate Japan and go to war -- a war that might well cost us tens of billions of dollars, hundreds of thousands of lives of Americans, and many more hundreds of thousands of physically maimed and mentally unbalanced men.
Of course, for this loss, there would be a compensating profit -- fortunes would be made. Millions and billions of dollars would be piled up. By a few. Munitions makers. Bankers. Ship builders. Manufacturers. Meat packers. Speculators. They would fare well.
Yes, they are getting ready for another war. Why shouldn't they? It pays high dividends.
But what does it profit the men who are killed? What does it profit their mothers and sisters, their wives and their sweethearts? What does it profit their children?
What does it profit anyone except the very few to whom war means huge profits?
link to read the whole book It's 5 chapter's and take about 2 hours to read.
Maybe they should use A-max and partitions in battle so that the soldiers get smashed and properly broken? It might make it unpalatable to fight until it's the very last and THE! only option left to take? And then you don't give a F#@k about an enemy who refused to accept genuine offers and solutions for peace, goodwill, caring, sharing, harmony forgiveness and grace... without hidden agendas and closed door deals!
FIGHTING FOR FREEDOMS LIKE F $#@ING FOR CHASTITY? It doesn't work!
Nobody wins a war! One side just looses more than the other ones lost? In ancient times the soldiers of the loosing side where castrated and enslaved! So some will argue that improvements have been made? I shyt ewe not gentlemen. ....
Its hard to see the true colour of a humans heart or the intentions of their mind? Just look around your local community and ask yourself what could you change to make it fairer and better. Sharing good honest Knowledge and understanding?
Look at how we've grown as a group and learnt new skills and ways to hunt and reload from the information Nathan and Steph have shared with us. Teaching and leading by example? Remember the shrink Gestalt said " You don't have to be sick, to get better"?
Back to the topic of the thread............
An exemption to use hollow points in war too make more projectiles with less material for more money.....? I think knot! Cheers guys.
