America's military role in the world...
Well, this comes as a surprise since I thought we had agreed to pull out of Iraq soon but came across this article where the US Army is making plans to stay there another 10 years or so. It says the US Army spoke at an invitation only news conference that it is due to their commitment to stopping the extremism and terrorism that they make this commitment.
It is kind of funny since I thought America was a democracy, you know, where the people chose what our country will fight for.
I guess I must have been thinking of some other country, perhaps? I mean, we have a constitution for a reason. I am very sick and tired of these evil and greedy warmongers trying to spread hate and fear everywhere. It is an excuse to steal money from America for themselves, the arms dealers and contractors I mean, you know, like the ex-Vice president who used to be a part of that Halliburton firm that corrupts other countries officials for their own personal greed.
If you are an American and want our constitution to mean something, if you want our country to be a true democracy, if you want our military to serve honorable and if you want our prosperity to not come at the cost to others in the world then please be vocal about this.
It is easy to change the world if you dare to get involved. Call your Congressman, call your local newspapers, talk to your friends, co-workers and neighbors and get them involved too. Failure to act will give them the courage to do even worse crimes then they currently are doing. Instead of just torturing foreigners they will soon feel powerful enough to begin torturing those of us who speak out against this unjust power grab.
You think it can not happen to us, but what makes us so different from any other powerful group that has come and gone in history? Do we call our leader Caesar? No, do we call our leader Your Highness? No, do we call him Mr. President for life? No, we are a country of rights and laws but they will become meaningless if we let this kind of thing continue and do nothing.
So please take 10 minutes out of your busy life to help keep America a country of the free and the proud.
