Imagine the Saudi's invaded the US because they didn't agree with our politics or social issues. Imagine there's a Saudi soldier on every corner,
fully armed, ready to take us out if we dare challenge them or threaten them.
Now, imagine some psycho like Charles Manson orchestrated an attack against a building in China so China decided to bomb our entire country for the
act of a few criminals. Would any of this change your views? Would you still feel sorry for the Chinese on their day of mourning, while they are
still occupying our land and killing our people?
I'm not blasting the US as a people but rather the US government for their slavery to the industrial military complex. Our defense spending is no
less than 1/3 of the annual federal budget, and there is big money to be made in war. Somebody has to supply the trucks, tanks, guns, planes, food,
tents, water, radios, missiles and other weapons, payroll and on and on. Then there is all of the rebuilding that we do at our own expense, lining
the pockets of companies like Halliburton, KBR, private security firms, constructions worker and other civilian workers.
It just goes on and on and is disgusting.
