The War

One of the reasons terrorists destroyed the twin towers of the World Trade Center was to destroy America’s economy. At this point, I believe they’ve come close to accomplishing this.

I cannot even begin to fathom the amount of money that has been spent on war since that horrible day. Sure, I was one of those who wanted the U.S. to go after Bin Laden and destroy him, but we ended up in Iraq instead of Afghanistan. Now the war switches to Afghanistan, and I see no end of war in sight.

I want this war to stop now. I want the killing of our American soldiers to stop now, and I want them back home now. I want ALL THIS MONEY THAT'S BEING SPENT ON WAR stopped now, so this country can spend it in building back up this country that’s falling apart. America's infrastructure is falling apart. People continue losing their jobs, their homes, not to mention their dignity.

What have we the American people gained from this endless war?
What have the 911 terrorists gained from their 911 attack?

I want this war to stop right NOW!

Thoughts please.

War makes A LOT of money for people.

It'll never end as long as corporations are considered people with the right to buy congress.

Ever read "1984?" You should if not.

As each day passes, I see more clearly, and it scares me to death.

I'll do my best to read it.

Don't do your best, READ IT.

Its an important piece of literature that will OPEN YOUR EYES to "endless war" (aka "war on terrorism.)

Scary thing is, the book was written A LONG TIME AGO.

AGREED!! 1984 is a fantastic book so is Animal Farm. Its surprising how close 1984 parallels the current regime.

I'd say the "1984" parallels started with the Bush era actually. "War on terrorism" equals war with East Asia, or was it actually...


And yes, "animal farm" too!

When was then last time you read 1984? You may wish to go back and read it again. It could not be closer to the Obama administration if it was named Obama's World. and as for your other comment to me about Israel, that was deleted real quick, It shows that you know little about the International community and have no appreciation for our allies in the world stage. Israel is our only real friend in the fertile crescent area.

It was deleted because it wasn't worded right AND I decided opening that can of worms in someone else's journal wasn't proper livejournal behavior.
