I ask you why?

Why do people hate those who are in the countries your country attacks?

Like you, all people want to be at peace.
Like you, all people want to grow, learn, prosper, have children, and allow them to do the same.
Like you, everyone loves their family.

Unlike you, their families are dying.

Ask yourself, if another nation of people came to yours, bombed your schools, your hospitals, removed all form of law and order, and in the process killed most, if not all of your family.
What would you do?

Would you say, "Oh, that's alright, they're trying to help us."?

Or would you do the last thing left that could bring some meaning to it all? Would you seek revenge, even if it kills you?

Unlike you, their fighters cannot fire from within an armored vehicle, with body armor, using some of the most advanced killing devices known to man.

Unlike you, they cannot guide their revenge to its target from a control board miles away in complete safety.

Unlike you, they cannot return to their families, sit down, watch television and pretend its not happening.

Their families are dying, and quite often they don't have a living room left to return to even if they wanted to.

They've been pushed to the brink of human tolerance. They want to be left alone, and that's the one thing your country has made it clear it will not do.

They are the ones whom you call the murderers.

YOUR nation has the option to leave, YOUR nation has the option to permit them to finally try to get their lives in order.

YOUR nation has made it abundantly clear that leaving them alone is the one thing they will never do.

YOU have the capability to replace blind hatred of others, with understanding.

And yet, you continue to hate.

So, I ask you, why?

Hate's got nothing to do with it.

Are you stereo-typing here? Seems like it. Are you pissed at us, big time?

Does it ever occur to you that some of us don't like the way politics runs
the show?

We are not all evil imperialists. Some of us love our country yet dispise
our government. We may even dispise other governments. We're not
a trusting lot.

We have a conscience. And we have ideas. And currently we have the
freedom to voice our opinions. It's not easy to change things quickly.
But some of us really want the change to come.

Remember the Diabold (Diabolic) Voting machines? Do you remember the victims of Katrina? Do ever consider the rescuers of the Twin Towers and their ongoing health problems? Have you eaten any of the chemically enhanced meats and foods that are being genetically engineered in the past several years? Have you lost loved ones from the various super bugs that are running rampant in our hospitals and playgrounds or schools? Did you loose a pet through any of the tainted pet food last year? Are any of your relatives sickened and dying of alzheimer's from the BSE that could have been prevented through an inexpensive testing at the slaughterhouse level? Do you live under the constant pressure of extreme changes to the country that your forefathers (The working class) have created so that you could live a better life? Have you been shopping in the past year to find that the same groceries you purchased last year for 80 dollars now cost you at least 180? Are your children being screened and conditioned thru public schools without your permission? Are your teenagers being contacted at the high school level for recruitment to sustain the oil fields in another country that only causes you to pay upwards of 3 dollars per gallon in you ageing vehicle because you cannot afford a more economical model? Are you paying taxes on the money you make only to be taxed when you go to spend it? Have you attempted to get a small business loan to start a business? Are you able to save money? Are the mortgage loans that were once within your families budgets now way over budget? If you were to loose your electricity of fall short on food would you be able to keep your beloved children?
Many changes have been wrought upon all of here on the planet due to the corporate greed of the few. When one nation suffers we all suffer. No man is an island remember?
