People should rise against this kind of persons and let them know they have no interest in war and watch their homeland being ripped apart. If they want to be involved in a war they should pick a rifle and go in front but as we know... they won't.
To declare war on US it's not a funny thing to do...the history has proved it.
It is interesting how this system has continued pretty much the same way for years and years and years, except the economic hit men are getting better and better.
In 1998 Hugo Chavez gets elected president, following a long line of presidents who had been very corrupt, and basically destroyed the economy of the country.Chavez was elected amidst all that. Chavez stood up to the United States, and he has done it primarily demanding that Venezuelan oil be used to help the Venezuelan people. The US didn't like that so, in 2002 a riot was staged, which, there`s no question in most of people's minds that the CIA was behind that coup. The way that that coup was fomented was very reflective of what Kermit Roosevelt had done in Iran, of paying people to go out into the streets to riot, to protest, to say this Chavez is very unpopular. If one can get a few thousand people to do that, television can make it look like its the whole country, and things start to mushroom. Except in the case of Chavez, he was smart enough and the people were so strongly behind him that they overcame it which was a phenomenal moment in the history of Latin America.

Chavez is a moron. I hope he gets what he deserves and his people revolt.
Hopefully this will make it clear to the American people that we do not have an anti-war party. Obama is as much as a warmonger as Bush.

There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American.During a
break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying 'Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims.What does he intended to do, bomb them?'
A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: 'Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they
are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000
people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons
of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen
helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their
flight deck. We have eleven such ships; how many does France have?' The answer is one by the way.
I thought that the above illistrates what the US really does, not what people with too much time think we do.
