You all want to know something? The word terrorist really pisses me right off. I've been called a terrorist for my beliefs in the constitution. I've
been called a terrorist for supporting the free will of humanity to do as they please. I've been called a terrorist for saying I love my country but
hate my government. It's infuriating how much that word is thrown around!
Who is the real terrorist? I will never forget where I was on the morning of September 11, 2001. Unlike many I also haven't forgotten that that was
not the first attack on the WTC. I won't forget the day my best friend died in Afghanistan, or the day my cousin got blown in half by an Iraqi IED. I
will never forget any of that, ever, and any one who assumes that because I'm not a war monger makes me less of a patriot should try and say that to
my face in public.
You armchair warriors have no clue what it's like, do you? You think America has some authority to do as she pleases just because we're supposedly
the elite police force on this small, small planet. That's a disgusting way to look at the world, IMO... Totally disgusting.
If the poor child who had his face blown apart survives to become a man, and learn the truth about why his face was blown off, and why his friends and
family died in an explosion they had no idea was coming... You think that young man is not going to have a permanent vendetta? You think those
children that survived and watched their people die are ever going to forget that it was an American air strike that took those people away?
Open your eyes to the brutal and uncomfortable truth: The government of the United States of America has played its citizens for fools. We have stood
back and watched attack after attack roll on the daily news and yet we as a whole still seem to ignore the inhuman treatments our government has
chosen to dole out on the civilian population in the middle east. WAKE THE F UP! Put yourselves in another persons shoes for one day.....
Imagin yourself sitting on the front or back stoop of your home in suburbia, or your home in the city, or your home in the country, or your rental, or
at your trailer. Now imagine yourself having a glass of tea, or playing some chess with your buddy, or maybe sipping a beer or two with the neighbors.
Now imagine hearing a high pitched whine screaming out of the sky followed by a series of explosions beginning at the end of your block and ending
about 100 feet from you.
Or imagine a quick carpet bombing with a few 500 pound incindeiry bombs going off about a half a mile away and within seconds all of the windows in
your home are broken, and it feels like there was an earthquake rolling under your feet.
Now imagine you found out who dropped those bombs.
Get my drift?
The above, minus the definition, was taken from another thread I had posted this in. I feel like this thought I've had at least merits more
discussion, with derailing the other thread, which is about a video showing the rawest reality of what has been going on in the Middle East at
American and allied hands.
We all think we know how grizzly war can be. We all know some one, and many of us have actually been in war(s) , but for those who are unaware it is
the nastiest business in the world.
The harsh reality is that the US government has been TERRORIZING the civilian population of the middle east since late 2001. We have the blood of over
200,000 innocents on on OUR collective hands, because our 'enemies' don't choose to differentiate between us and the government.
And why should they? Our taxes have paid for it. Our media is bankrolling huge because of it. WE ARE ALL JUST AS GUILTY AS THE GOVERNEMNT. Not
because we have chosen to support this type of action from our government, but because we have stood idly by and watched as innocent men women and
children are burnt, blown up, and shot at in the name of American freedom. Please.
Its extremely unfortunate, but entirely true. I am an American, and I am ashamed. The Government of our country, the good ol USA, fits every
definition of terror to the truest meaning of the word. So what do you guys think? I've been in nearly full outrage mode for the last year or so,
and I know many of you have strong opinions about this topic. Here's your chance to get it off your chest.
