Albert Einstein once said that, "The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits."
It is now slowly beginning to dawn upon the huddled masses of sheeple, of these United States, that their federal government has stupidly and arrogantly led them into a costly horrific war in an extremely dangerous part of the world. The fact that it has taken so long for this notion to sink in can be laid at the feet of a number of factors not the least of which is several generations of public schooling that has rendered our nation one of the stupidest on earth. What did you think would happen when you took children away from their parents at an early age and drilled them in state worship and obedience to authority figures?
This unjust war is not new to U.S. history. Since the Civil War the federal government has been one of the most consistently active tyrannies on the world stage. Starting with Reconstruction and the systematic slaughter of native tribes by the U.S. military in the 19th century, on through the brutalizing conquest of the Philippines, Hawaii and other Pacific island nations at the dawn of the 20th century, to be followed by disastrously aggressive involvements in World War 1, World War 2, Korea, Latin America, Vietnam, Iraq 1, and the currently active invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq 2, this corrupt empire has been one mean mutha! And don't forget about the current saber rattling directed towards Iran, Syria and North Korea.
In fact, the only time the United States was actually attacked (on the conquered and colonized island of Oahu) was by Japan, who did preemptively strike in an early application of the "Bush Doctrine". After all, the U.S. WAS developing "weapons of mass destruction," which it could have used and eventually DID use against Japan.
I'm glad Congressman Murtha finally stood up last week and said enough was enough. Let's hope that this starts the ball rolling for the biggest cut and run since Vietnam.
The empire is bankrupt and it's time to fold your cards Mr. Bush. You have lost and lost decisively. All that is left for you to do is attend your trail for war crimes. I want a front row seat.
It may be a Merry Christmas after all.
