These wars have greatly stunted the ambitions and goals of people dangerous to everything that freedom and liberty stand for. It's amazing to see on 9/11/11 how many people remembered what this was about and just a month later, spit on those same things.

Horse hockey. America has never been more threatened thanks to these blatantly immoral and illegal wars of choice. Even a majority of American troops no longer believes they were worth it.

Americans have never been so impoverished of the civil rights held dear by the founders and stolen from them by the idiotic knee jerk response of a jingoistic Congress and their "Patriot" Act.

We have embarked down a road of empire and callous, global death-dealing that has made us a pariah among peace loving nations. We have allowed our national consciousness to be infected with the worst sort of beliefs and attitudes and have allowed runaway corporatism of the military-industrial complex and poisonous zionism to determine our foreign policy and set our political agendas.

Too many of us have acted like entranced children while republican Fox Noise propaganda rings from every corner of the country into unquestioning, poorly educated and increasingly angry ears. Ears which are attached to people who are looking for convenient scapegoats, deserving or otherwise.

We have been bled dry by the industrial military complex, thanks to the repugnants among us. Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld should be tried for TREASON and Obama should be impeached for adding troops. The only terrorists we really need to fear are right here at home and they sit in Board Rooms and own the repugnant party and a chunk of the Domocratic party as well. They own and control everthing you rely on to survive. They gamble on your food supply, your fuel, and even your mortgage. They are corporate raiders and now they are raiding our government, and alot of really stupid people are supporting the destruction.
