I'm sure most of you have either read Seabags thread.www.abovetopsecret.com...
I, as a veteran like many of you, am very angry about this. The increasing presure to see us as terrorists is sickening. We are being vilified by the
government of the people we once swore to serve. I for one feel like I have been kicked in the nuts by my own country. It is very easy to see where
this is going. I can already see changes in how people in public act around me if they find out I am a veteran. I have applied for many jobs that I am
perfectly qualified for but have yet to find employment. I can only wonder now if my veteran status is the reason?
I am calling on you all today to help me start a solution. What can we do to keep the american public from being brainwashed into this type of
thinking.? I know I will be writing many letters to my represenatives about this and I challenge each and every one of you to do the same. I will also
be writing to my local papers as well in an effort to spread truth, not propagandized fiction aimed at dismantling our status within our society. What
can we as ATS members do to publicly appose this? If you are a writer, please write and post anywhere you can.
People need to know that we are not all crazy killers just looking for a reason to snap. The MSM would have people believe that but it just is not
true. People need to be educated in the fact that most veterans are functioning members of society that pose only a threat to the rouge government
which is now villifying them.
Also, during these trying times, we veterans need to be there for each other now more than ever. If any of you ever need anything just reach out and I
will be there as I hope all other veterans on this site will be. These are trying times for us and no matter how bad things get we must maintain the
self control and discipline that was instilled with us in the military. We stand no chance in a rebellion or uprising without the full and
unconditional support of our fellow countrymen. I know some of you are very angry, I am as well; I ask that nobody does anything stupid in retaliation
to how we are being treated.
We must follow any avenue we can that could peacefully put the kaibash on the governments plan to label us all domestic terrorists in the eys of the
public. I am open to any and all suggestions/ideas. Now is the time for us to come together more than ever. We need to act now before it is too late
and we are being hunted down and locked away for simply being a threat.
ETA: If anyone is wondering why I placed this in the War on Terrorism forum; I placed it here because the War on Terrorism stands to quickly become a
War on Veterans.
