Romney proud that Americans are effectively born into global slavery to the Endless Unwinnable War Industry, shares view that US is unique in all history for sacrificing lives of our sons and daughters while asking for nothing in return-Atlantic, May 30, 2012

5/30/2012,Inside Romney and Trump’s Las Vegas Fundraiser,Sarah Huisenga, The Atlantic, National Journal, Las Vegas, Nevada

At the Tuesday evening (2012) fundraiser...Trump introduced the now-official Republican nominee by telling the crowd that Romney would be “a great, great president.” Romney responded by thanking his host for “twisting the arms that it takes to bring a fundraiser together” – a nod to the connections that Trump provides.

But the former Massachusetts governor [Romney] made a point of highlighting a key difference between his worldview and that of Trump’s when he told a story that shed light on his viewpoint of the United States’ role when it comes to war.

Trump, speaking about the decline he sees in the country’s military philosophy, said that America was getting “nothing” from its recent wars. “You know in the old days, you won a war, ‘To the victor belong the spoils,’” Trump said during his introduction of Romney. “With us, we win a war what do we do? We leave Iraq, what did we get out of it? They’re having a field day with the second largest oil reserves in the world; we get nothing. It’s just a very, very sad situation.”

In contrast, Romney chose to tell a story about a time he was with former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres at the height of the Iraq war when Peres was asked what he thought about America’s participation in the conflict. Romney said he expected the liberal former head of state to be critical, but instead he offered “context.”

“He said ‘America is unique in history of earth,” Romney told the audience. “He…(Peres) said, One nation in history has laid down hundreds and thousands of lives of its sons and daughters and taken no land – no land from Germany, no land from Japan.”

He continued, “This is a great nation. A nation of people who will sacrifice for things bigger than themselves“...(image above from Reuters)
