REMEMBER TO REMEMBER TO FORGET!

Right after World War Two, when I was eight years old, I asked my Dad why was this Country always at war. His reply, "The world has to have a war to survive". I still remember those words!

After every War/Conflict, the United States has been involved in, a Catchphrase as been attached to that War!

NEVER FAIL TO CAPITALIZE ON A CONVENIENT CRISIS!

Some United States historical Catchphrases:

1700's - Remember: the Boston Tea Party! (Revolutionary War)

1801 - Remember: The Shores of Tripoli! (Barbary War)

1830's - Remember: the Alamo! (Mexican/American War)

1861 - Remember: Fort Sumter! (War between the States)

1890's - Remember: the Maine! (Spanish/American War)

1898 to Remember: Gone Bananas 1934 (Banana Wars)

1915 - Remember: the Lusitania! (World War One)

1940's - Remember: Pearl Harbor! (World War Two)

1950 - Remember: the Chosin Reservoir! (Korean War/Police Action)

1965 - Remember: the Domino Effect! (Viet Nam War)

2001 - Remember: 911! (War on Terrorists)

Today - Remember: We have always known better than you how you should live your dumb downed/doped up lives! (Political Elite's War on the People)

There have been other conflicts that the U.S. has been involved in that doesn't have a catchphrase. such as; LBJ's War on Poverty which has become a War on Property. Other Conflicts - The War on Illiteracy has become one of a War on Infancy and the War on Drugs has become one of "Who Me? shrugs"!

"BELLUM CUI BONO" (War is to whose benefit?)
