Which War Today?

Daily Draw: Etruscan Tarot ~ 3 of Swords

This soldier is killing a priestess, and looks like he has done more first.

I'm reminded by this card how a Page soldier and a career soldier keep their enemies straight. The elder because enemy is a moving target over the years. The Page because he had no enemies at all and has now been given the job of killing wholesale in name of god or country. I seriously grieve that nations are still in Etruscan mode two thousand years removed.

"They've got us surrounded again, the poor bastards." ~ Creighton W. Abrams 1914-1974

  2. Why can't everybody win? Why does there have to be a loser and a winner? And why do people think you're not patriotic if you don't want to "win"?

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
