Welcome to my website.

You are obviously a raging subversive, left-wing commie-pinko, or you’ve stumbled across this by accident.

My name is H.T. (call me Tom) Brown, and I’ve written a book that I intend to coerce you into buying. Up front, it’s probably the most negative look at the Military Industrial Complex ever written, but if in fact you are either in the military or thinking about joining our war machine; I implore you to take a look. If you’re already consumed by the military ideals and philosophy it’s unlikely that I’ll be able to change your mind, but you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to hear another point of view from the opposite camp. It could not only save your life, but your sanity as well.

My adventure with our armed forces takes place during the Vietnam era when the draft was still in place, and the government could send young men who had barely turned 21 an induction notice, before whisking them away to fight and die for a seriously questionable cause. We’ve now evolved to the point where the draft is no more, but it’s impossible to claim that we’ve moved beyond sending our young men into harm’s way for no good reason. As a result we’ve murdered and/or displaced millions of people whose families are never going to forgive us. We’ve accomplished nothing more than making us the enemies of these people for generations to come. Saddam was an evil man to be sure, but we managed to show up to make it even worse for the citizens under his depraved dictatorship. And if that’s not bad enough for you, Bush’s ill-conceived war with Iraq, in conjunction with the gluttonous corporate weasels, has left our economy floundering with no end in sight. And unless I am mistaken isn’t there a war in Afghanistan that’s been raging for ten years? Does any of this sound familiar?

My country, the U.S.A., making friends and manipulating people worldwide. Is it 2014 yet?

“The professional military mind is by necessity an inferior and unimaginative mind; no man of high intellectual quality would willingly imprison his gifts in such a calling.”
—H.G. Wells

I’ve posted a link to the third chapter of my book (see lower left or click here) on this site in the hope that I can entice you into going to SPB Publishing, Amazon or Barnes & Noble to see how the story plays out.
