Nation Building?

Purpose of document is to support the concluding statement that "President Obama needs to create a Joint Chiefs of NAPO to advise him on how to set new strategies for Mideast to Afghanistan region and reform The American Legion.".

This was prompted by web article "We ‘lost’ the Afghanistan War: See reality and start talking" http://www.veteranstoday.com/2010/08/10/we-lost-the-afghanistan-war-see-reality-and-start-talking/

Key quotes are "75 percent of Afghans believe foreigners disrespect their religion and traditions", '"74 percent think working for foreign forces is wrong", "A recent U.S. government audit  found that despite $27 billion spent on training, fewer than 12 percent of Afghan security forces were capable of operating on their own".

Not good news after almost a decade in Afghanistan. The current strategy appears to move father away from nation building to trying to convince the Afghan people that we are better than the Taliban. From the statistic mentioned above, this is a dubious strategy.

Nation Building appears to have become a code word for propagating a "Christian" view point of manipulating people through ignorance of what Christianity really is, permitting the struggle over Christianity to be hidden rather than transparent.

All nation want to be democratic but depending on who and how the last war was won or lost, all nations have varying degrees of democracy based upon true spirituality as Heaven is a natural absolute democracy.

The Mideast to Afghanistan region has not know peace since WWII, hence most countries have sparse governmental democracy but that does not mean they do not have the spiritual ability to understand what a true democracy is.

America is similar but due to the size, wealth and power of America, various culture groups experience democracy while others struggle to be in that group. With the middle class shrinking quickly the struggle has become very intense.

Much is made that America is a constitutional democracy but as in all mankind, various culture groups find a way to subvert the best of intentions.

The American Legion appears to be such an organization, "incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness". Interesting quotes "adopt a constitution, bylaws, and regulations to carry out the purposes of the corporation" and "do any other act necessary and proper to carry out the purposes of the corporation".

The first purpose is " (1) to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States". This circular laws cedes constitutional power to The American Legion with interesting constitutional laws ( http://www.legion.org/preamble ) "FOR GOD AND COUNTRY WE ASSOCIATE OURSELVES TOGETHER FOR THE FOLLOWING PURPOSES","To maintain law and order" (judge, jury and execute powers), "To foster and perpetuate a one hundred percent Americanism", "To inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state and nation", There are other very good statement laws made but the previous statements contradict any good intentions.

The American Legion made themselves a police force that can determine what is American, what Americans must do and Americas religious beliefs. This gives a lot of power to a cultural subgroup who wants to dominate by any means necessary and overcome what many good people in The American Legion may be trying to do.

In contrast the National Association of Police (NAPO ) have excellent stated intension in their preamble "to educate the public with regard to achieving improved public safety and crime reduction" and "to educate the public concerning the methods and means of achieving more effective crime control and law enforcement so as to establish a more peaceful, tranquil and free society for all"

"More effective crime control" is protecting "We the people" the basis for a natural democracy. All nations are in a process of Nation Building.

President Obama needs to create a Joint Chiefs of NAPO to advise him on how to set new strategies for Mideast to Afghanistan region and reform The American Legion.

Canada has the same system. I could not find the legal authority for this but in may be in NORAD and other agreements.

Both countries are changing laws without regard to legal precedent. The US has changed the retirement age for those who are eligible for early retirement.

Canada is trying to change the statistical base of how many laws function, effectively changing many laws to be based upon the whim of administrative authority.
