I'm fixing to be so politically incorrect here.
Why do these heros and the media fail to acknwoledge that guys like Saddam, were funded by the U.S. were educated here, given or sold the arms to do these hideous acts against humanity.
Please investigate the history we are taught and learn....endless war needs to stop.
We need to bring our boys home...NOW!!!
We have been sold the "boogie man" bill of goods for a hundred year now...thanks to the federal reserve and the military industrial complex.
Listen to Eisnehower's farewell speech, warning against what is going on now. Please!!! We need to stop this madness and take our country back.
okay...gonna try this again as my post did not go through.
I am going to be very politically incorrect.
Why do we not hear from the media or these "heros" that we, the American taxpayer, via our government funded, these so called terroist and dictators. Yes folks, Saddamm was educated in the U.S. put into power by the U.S. sold or given WMD's (Rumsfeld brokered that deal)allowed to attack Kuwait, then we get to attack him.
We must bring our boys home. That is the best way to honor them. I know, I know, once again I will labeled "unpatriotic"...I'm not...
Google the PNAC document...you will see this was a plan.
We must take our country back...the Tea Party has been coopted by the Republicans....we must get back to the constitution...or we shall all be buried.
Ok, I'll take the bait. Ron, you are a perfect example of how a "little" knowledge, along with a warped perspective of our country, can lead to such a distastefully backwards view. PNAC is a privately owned and operated organization that promotes their own views of how the U.S. should shape foreign policy. The do not represent the absolute truth but the truth according to the way they see it. The half truths from which you base most of your posts are often partly correct but you manage to only use them to promote things the way you see them. Yes, the U.S. did finance much of the military buildup of Iraq just as they had previously done for Iran. This was in keeping with the belief of the U.S. government at that time that we needed to help all parties in the region to maintain a balance of power due to the ethnic and religious differences. To say that we encouraged Iraq to invade Kuwait is way out there! I agree, the U.S. had often positioned themselves in no win situations. Afganistan is certainly one. But to promote an anti American viewpoint on Veterns Day using half truths, when we should be thanking God for the brave souls that have provided us with the very opportunity to speak our opinions in this forum, well for the lack of a better word, you said it, politically incorrect.
