Our Unfunded Wars are Destroying the Country



1. The Iraq War – We have no exit strategy and there is no way to emerge victorious. Why are our troops still there?

2. The Afghanistan War – The citizens of Afghanistan were fighting a civil war before our troops entered their country, and the civil war will continue after we leave.

3. Phantom Terror War – We are at a standstill. At home, we are fighting more homegrown terrorists, abroad we continue to fight more emerging terrorists.

4. The Economic War – Our leaders seem unaware that we are even in an economic war. We are losing badly, and may have already lost.


This wars are been fought with borrowed money making the nation get deeper into debt along with the tax payer.

But it seems that our politicians supporting this wars have no problem passing the tab.

I think the war on drugs is worse for the country than all the other ones combined.

And racism
and religion
and the corporate world taking over the political which could lead to the demise of the Constitution since it does not protect citizens against corporations, but only the government, it is the loophole around the Constitution.

All of this has been brought to you by the Federal Reserve. It requires war for profit.

Its brought more devastation and cost more lives than every terrorist attack and the two wars put togather, cost more rights an d freedoms than the Patriot act, and imprisioned more people than WW2 interment camps


But at least now it is impossible for someone to get their jands on illegal drugs and the country is safe

Pretty similar from a British perspective as well, why is it that are countries seem to be hooked on these unwinnable wars?

I would argue that it is a "catch 22".

Numbers 1,2 and 3 also ensure employment and are major contributors to state's economic activity. Remember, war is very profitable.

The "war machine" is present in almost every voting district, this is a major reason why almost no politician will vote to decrease the military budget. In doing so they would, potentially, reduce the level of employment in their district, and therefor risk losing the next election.

(I'm not saying this, by any means is right, it's just how the system was set-up in order to ensure its perpetuity.)

Now, #4 is a war where the "enemy" is entrenched with the government. It has also been set-up to ensure its perpetuity, but I believe they may have gone too far. The levels of institutionalized fraud are becoming too blatant, and the tax payer is beginning to understand how the ponzi scheme works.

In any case, only when the mainstream media begins to really shed some light onto these situations is change ever really going to be possible. Perhaps WikiLeaks will help spur this on, but I am not very optimistic, and fear it may be too late. Because in all of these cases, political financing is at play, and that is where policy really happens!

people need to group and become heard to change the ways of the current.. your children and their childrens future is at stake.. war always only hurts the citizens on both sides.. our children and their children will be fully depleted of any prosperity and life if this continues.. being passive thru this all will only allow it to continue on path... your children and their childrens lives are dependent to the current masses discontinuing the passive stance.. other countries are fighting to take back their children and their childrens lifes.. Americans remain too passive, therefore your childrens future is darkening... being passive doesnt seem to become heard anymore.. a disservice to your children American peoples.. a disservice to your children is the result of being passive to this.. your childrens future is becoming very dark...
