As an American I think I understand how Europeans are THROUGH with WAR. The UK is the one divided country. It is genetically linked to the United
States, but it is sited in Europe. Or nearly so. In the First World War, Great Britain, France Russia and Germany each lost more than 1 million men of
young age. Germany lost many millions of men in the Second World War as did also the Soviet Union. America lost about 145,000 KIA in the First, and
450,000 KIA in the Second. From 1918 to 1939 is just 21 years. One generation. Tens of million of people would have lived through both wars.
I hope the UK does not raise its 2.2% of GDP for its armed forces. Hire more cops, not more soldiers.
It is my solemn belief that the Republicans and George Bush have pervertedly CO-OPTED the Nine Eleven Event. Geo W had, by September, 2001, undone
the 1993 tax policy that had brought our country to a balanced budget and projected surplus. The stock market had collapsed, losing 40% of its value
compared to December, 2000.
I sincerely believe that Geo W was advised that WAR TRUMPS ECONOMY!
The 1993 WTC attack was treated as a CRIME. The perpetrators were sought out and brought to trial. The leader - the blind mullah - is now in jail. But
there was no glory in that. No SAVE an election motive. The Republicans got by in 2002 and were able to use Nine Eleven again in 2004.
ASIDE: I see the current US inspired Iran brouhaha as a GOP ploy for our November 7, 2006 election. Hey, if WAR worked in ‘02, and ‘04, why not
try it in ‘06?
Katrina is the example how poorly the Geo W Administration has prepared America for a disaster. The Homeland Security thing is mostly SHOW and very
little GO. Truth is, we cannot afford to have the level of security Americans think we are striving for. Geo W proposes to limit our civil liberties
and to backrupt the country, in the name of the open ended War on Terrorism. Now he has promised to remain in Iraq until 2009.
DON’T BE SUCKERED INTO THAT MODE OF OPEN ENDED SECURITY PROPOSALS FOR HALLIBURTON AND ETC.
