You claim this kid died for his country. Wrong, he died because of the lies and illusions of his GOVERNMENT.
The USA is in the WAR BUSINESS.
Thousands of military DOD contractors are making hundreds of billions on this war and they know we will never win.
It is all about the money, the lie is that our soldiers are fighting for FREEDOM.
This war is about revenge and money, the sad part is that we are just making it worse.
Brown and Root, Bell Helicopters, McDonnel Aircraft and countless other contractors LOVED the Vietnam War and never really wanted to win......nothing has changed.
The USA is sick and wallowing in its own greed and lies
Excellent post, sir.

I wish that far more people were as intelligent and as well informed as you.......and that they would view this country in the harsh light of the truth, as you do, instead of hiding behind their rose-colored glasses and automatically believing and going along with any lies fed to them by the the dishonest, warmongering elites who run this country.

A few years back, George Bush and his co-conspirators repeatedly lied through their teeth and scared the gullible populace into entering a war....they repeatedly invoked the specter of "mushroom clouds" over this country to make it seem as if Saddam Hussein had massive amount of weaponry, including nuclear missiles, with which he posed a direct threat to this nation and our way of life.

As we know now in hindsight, NOTHING COULD HAVE BEEN FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH; yet thanks to the mindless drones that make up such a huge segment of this populace, Americans have been thrown into a disastrous foreign "war" in Iraq that will end up --by the latest estimates-- costing we taxpayers close to three TRILLION dollars before it's over.

There are no words to express how horrible the crime was to have dragged this nation into a war, based purely on lies.

We have 1.4 million in uniform and 3 wars we cannot win by any standards.

I still remember a certain Senator saying we should bomb North VietCong during the Vietnamese War. North Viet Cong is what he called it.LMAO. The average american could not find that country on a map yet bought the foolish argument that we cared if they voted or not. We used that country for our own evil motives and were defeated by low tech peasants that defended their country.

In this quagmire they constantly "INVOKE the TROOPS" as camoflage to defend the war. By constantly praising the troops they are defending the war with the implication that if you are against the war you are against the troops.

Many of our troops realise what a ridiculous disgrace these wars are and how they are being used by those that are profiting from the faux efforts.

There were some expressions used during the Vietnam war..

"Why should we ruin a perfectly good war with Victory"

" War is business and business is good"

" Quit knocking this war, it is the only one we have"

" Why stop this war, we will just have to start another one someplace else"

Thousands of DOD contractors are making hundreds of billions on these Wars of Internal Profits.

Americans are being sold the lie that this war has something to do with FREEDOM and if we do not fight there the Bad GUYS will invade us here.

We are the enemy we seek.

Your subconcious wishes for such gross anal sex cannot be disguised by using my name.

Go lay down in the ghetto and let the animals ravish you.
