one thing I agree with is that assad shouldnt have chemical weapons. He is now going to hand them over for destruction. Seems like the rest of
situation needs less air craft carriers and battle groups then before , no?
Secondly it is not "anti war" to list the cost in people, resources and political capital ventured and lost. Its called a tally and it is used to sum
up a situation. The wars the US has fought have exhausted the United states.
I will repeat that. THIS WELL IS DRY.
Our little prince leaders need to find someone else to be the whipping boy for blame when things need to get made down and dirty and someone else to
do the dirty work.
We give it all as a people.
We sacrifice our young to carnage for the plight of far off people who are ungrateful of our self appointed place in THEIR mess. We give away our
wealth to private profit veiled like a whore in our national colors and illegitimate authority. We obey and comply with the whims of mad men drunk on
power who will literally kill us if we get too spirited or in their way.
How are we repaid?
With distrust. We are the most spied upon population in the world, even more so than China. We are severely taxed for everything we do and for every
miserable little pittance we may get our way...and are even supposed to have a freaking CARBON tax placed on us for craps sake...so maybe a bike ride
will get you a bill for breathing too heavily in the future. We are the most imprisoned people on the planet maybe next to N korea, though last I
checked compared to our population size, we are actually MORE imprisoned then N koreans based strictly on percentages. We are also one of the most
lied to people on the face of the planet. Maybe even worse than some cheap dictatorship spewing propaganda, since that is now legal here as well.
If you dont take issue with these things and realize that THAT is why we could care less if the entire F-ing planet blew itself up tomorrow , then you
are not one of us. We want to start to take care of our own. I dont give a flying monkey chuck of dung what middle eastern people have liked to do to
themselves for the last thousands of years. I want MY PEOPLE to do well. Selfish? WE DONT CARE. Our moral heart strings have been played like
marionettes for the last 70+ years. We could care less what "trump card" you throw on the table of public support.
WE have had enough. If you havent, then you dont live in the reality that MOST Americans live in. Your´e special, and as such we could care even less
what you think most of us should do. Pay blackwater, or whatever new upcoming private contractor is hot right now and send mercenaries from every part
of the world to fight other mercenaries from other parts of the world. Use some of the public subsidy that goes to private profit to pay for it if
"powerful and important" people feel their interests are being threatened.
We have literally had a large enough dose of BS to induce berserker rage on the political class and financial elite of this country. I isht you
Enough. Poor Syrians? WHAT ABOUT US GOD DAMN IT!
