Here’s a guy who has the balls to suggest that “In this modern age of information we now know that time and time again our military have been deployed into battle, to kill and be killed, for reasons that in no way shape or form resemble the reasons for which they, or we, were told at the time.”

It sounds like Jesse is one of those soldiers who questions the chain of command. On a battlefield this cognitive skill would be considered by a platoon sergeant to be highly unproductive, if not self-defeating but for many soldiers in war theatres such cognitive ability to question war strategy is not required. What is required is blind trust and blind obedience by men and women willing to serve a Government and its Military Commanders unto death.

In the First World War thousands of very naive misinformed young men from France and England were sent to the trenches to die for ‘their countries’ in a war conceived by insane Generals and their doubly insane Governments who, like the Russians, bristling with armaments they had been busy developing since the wars in the 1870’s – thanks to a new kind of WOMD science, the tank, the machine gun and the aerial bomber – declared war on countries that hadn’t fired a single shot at their citizens in London and Paris. War profiteers gathered their lobbyists, the infighting European aristocracy called upon their subservient news barons and the British Establishment set about the task of radicalising the British working man to hate the Kaiser. In the early twentieth century a new mechanised world captured the imagination of a new global elite of industrialists and to them a world war meant big business. Pushing thousands of British soldiers into the firing line of Kaiser’s men, like pieces in a chess game laced with Brandy, meant little to the upper echelons of a society obsessed with military power and the retention of vast tracks of land.

If Jesse had have broadcasted then what he is broadcasting today, a lynch mob would have despatched him to the gallows. The irony is, Jesse represents the hidden majority who always remain silent when certain sections of society, hypnotised by the media, are transformed into a unified killing machine and who fear for the lives if they object to the war hysteria.

Jesse qualifies as God’s friend. The God who has never incited ‘his’ creation to kill and maim, despite what is recorded in an Old Testament he did not write.

    For thousands of years, nations have waged war against each other and have justified these wars with their laws.
    They have managed to convince their armies that God is on their side and approves of their legalised murder.

    Throughout history, leaders have appealed to their nations in an attempt to justify their murderous actions, but where there is justification, there is sin.
    If actions have to be justified, it’s because they are wrong and in question as such.

    Two thousand years ago, the true face and nature of God was witnessed through Jesus Christ who told us that the teachers of the law didn’t know God because they didn’t know Him and had no room for His Words in their lives.

    His Words were not just a revelation, but salvation also to anyone who heard them and believed in Him and God who had sent Him, and still are to this day.

    His two greatest commandments threw men’s laws into the pit from where they had come. Yet only 350 years after Jesus, His Words were buried in the Jewish Law, labelled the same, and the first Bible was created by man, a man who who was the Roman Emperor at the time and was also worshipped like a God.

    Man’s “divine” justification of murder continues to this day and is supported by the so called “Holy Book” (The Bible) which the Roman Emperor created.

    Two thousand years ago, God revealed the Truth through Jesus Christ which a few hundred years later was mixed into “leavened bread” with the words of murderers thieves and rapists who claimed they were carrying out God’s will. (The Bible)
    Two thousand years later, we need to raise the Truth of Jesus Christ out of the diabolical context of The Bible and present Him as The Way.

    Salvation does not come through reading the Bible which justifies murder, theft, child sacrifice and rape. Salvation comes through hearing the Words of Christ and believing in Him.

    Jesus Christ is The Way, The Life and The Truth. No man or woman, can come to God without faith in Him.
