War & federal foreign policy
Remember the victims of war watch war footage not glorifying but dying blood & guts with pain & suffering on all sides but not the families of those in chare & responsible for starting the fighting! Aristocratic Nobles in Washington with their families safe out of harms way while the poor & middle class are sent to fight & die under the guise of protecting the Constitution.
Do you really think that terrorism is only targeting innocents on purpose?
Imagine this, your town is targeted by a Super Power (American) in order to get a terrorist in your midsts. You & your family cower in terror in your house as bombs hit nearby houses of suspected terrorists. You realize that they are not targeting but you, your family & entire town are in danger & being terrorized because you (& they) know that collateral damage occurs. Collateral damage in the form of death & destruction of innocent civilians & their property!
You might say to yourself, This is not right for the Americans (a Nation of Laws) to attack a sovereign nation & people! Arent disputes supposed to be solved in a court of law?
You might then say, It is wrong for the Americans to endanger my family & neighborhood with total disregard for our lives & property all to get revenge or to satisfy an Angry American Public.
You might then realize that, Terrorism isnt just targeting the innocent!
And you may just - Right then - become a freedom fighter to your people & a terrorist to America & Americans (who you hold personally responsible for their governments actions!)
War is terrorism! War should be a LAST Resort & only used when attacked!
Unintended Consequences do Happen!
When we draw the sword & go to war.
We roll the dice & anything can happen!
Just say No to WAR!
WAR is a LAST resort!

We need international laws & courts to maintain law & order as well as justice so that men arent motivated to violence (terrorism.) If we, the sole super power, willingly, openly & knowingly violate international law then we can not expect other to do the same & WE (the United States) will end up policing the world to enforce our laws!
I do not want to see our brave military sent to police the world. Our National Defense is for defending not policing or provoking foreign enemies!
On one hand we claim to be a nation of laws who respects the rights of others & gives everyone a fair trial because we believe that everyone is innocent until proven guilty.
But on the other hand (in practice) we (the United States) openly violate the laws that we claim to be a nation of, violating the rights of the innocent killed in bombings known as collateral damage as we cheer our federal government on blindly.
All the while our federal government brings injustice to the accused in the form of a Global Lynching! and this is all paid for by our tax dollars! We fund terror as far as many other people on the receiving end of our million dollar weapons are concerned. This fuels terrorism against Americans!
Attacking Iraq & Keeping the Peace
You can only take as much land as you can hold & we broke that rule when we invaded Iraq. We didnt have enough troops or military police to keep the peace. Soldiers & Marines are not police.
Not keeping the peace (as an occupying army) is a violation of international law. Our government didnt protect the hospitals but it protected the Ministry of Oil! Doesnt that just make those who think that this attack was all about oil LOOK EXACTLY RIGHT In the eyes of critics? Does the administration just not care that this fuels terrorism?
And isnt it wrong that in this country we dont allow 18 year-olds to drink because they are not responsible enough & may endanger us but we will give 18 year-olds fully automatic weapons & put them in life & death adult situations abroad endangering those other people as well as our brave men & women!
Soldiers & Marines are not police & in life & death situations they may commit war crimes due to inexperience & simple youthful mistakes. I dont want to see our brave service men & women in war crimes tribunals but if we keep putting them into these situations they will likely end up being tried for war crimes.
Post Invasion - (June 8, 2003) We imagined that the Americans would bring freedom & Democracy but that is far from the case! an Iraqi said on CNN after American Soldiers raided homes in the middle of the night terrifying & bounding women & children!
My opinion: This makes terrorists as sure as the Kings men going through our Founding Fathers homes did a couple of hundred years ago! Moreover, we are loosing our brave men & women every day in Post War Iraq. Post war? The war isnt over until the shooting is! We are not safer after invading Iraq but more at risk & with more problems not less!
Post Invasion (June 12, 2003)
Now it looks like there was no evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq! Oh the President didnt know the evidence was false! they say. This makes those people in the world who think that he attacked Iraq without proof!
This makes the moderates who have not decided to decide that the extremists are right about the Bush Administration fueling terror.
And this is just one more example of the American People being purposely misled & lied to by career politicians who have hidden agendas. We didnt attack Iraq to make the world safer! We attacked Iraq to get revenge for Sadams attempted assassination of Bushs father George the First or Second depending on weather or not you think of him as King George & to get control of a large portion of the worlds oil. Not to mention to establish a launching pad or base for future incursions in the area to overthrow the leaders of surrounding nations.
POLITICIANS SAY THE DARNDEST THINGSTHEY LIE!
Think for yourself.
-listen to multiple news sources & hear all sides.

Blindly trusting leaders to do the right thing is wrong thinking! Government is a necessary evil as Thomas Jefferson said & absolute power corrupts absolutely!
The President has been given unlimited power by Congress to wage war & I think that he just got started! How Congress, employees of the government & sworn to up hold the Constitution, can pass on powers granted to them by the Constitution is beyond me!
The federal governments powers are few & defined! The government (its employees) must obey the Constitution. They can not add to the Constitution to extend their powers unless the People amend the Constitution to extend their powers. So if the Constitution says that only Congress can declare war, then how can Congress pass that power on to the President? The Constitution would have to allow this before it could be possible & therefore this, Ill bet, is unconstitutional! They may just be willfully & knowingly violating the Constitution & if so, they are FELONS!
Punishing France & Germany
Some think that we Americans should punish France & Germany for not blindly supporting our federal government as it openly violated international law by invading & occupying another sovereign nation directly against the Majority Will of the Nations in that area as indicated by the UN vote against invasion! I disagree!
That (over there) is their neighborhood & NOT OURS! They will only learn to solve their own problems if they MUST DO IT THEMSEVES! If the US continues to do for others others will not learn to do for themselves!
Otherwise, they will instead become dependent upon the US to do for them! We dont need dependents do we? We have the mightiest military & weapons of mass destruction - so we dont even need allies for military reasons - so why dont we let others learn to solve their own problems?
After all, as far as Sadam Hussein is concerned, he wouldnt have been such a threat to the world if he had not been supported by our federal government in the 1990s! He got anthrax from the US!
He gassed his people with our help because we (our federal government Bushs Father) gave him the gas & taught him how to use it!
It took 2 to gas Sadams People!
It took one to give Sadam the gas & train him how to use it, effectively arming an evil man with weapons of mass destruction!
And it took one to use it Sadam!
Incase you dont know, our federal government armed & trained Sadam in the 1980s.

Our government gets involved in the affairs of other nations & does far more harm than good because the men running our necessary evil called government (Thomas Jefferson called government a necessary evil) are making their decisions based on what is good for them & not what is good for American!
This (over here) is our neighborhood & we need to mind our own business & take care of our business here at home! Rather than letting our federal government give our money to other nations to make them dependent upon the free money
We, the States, should make our government spend our money on our business here at home like for example:
- Defending the homeland from the enemies that we have already made abroad & taking care of the Veterans that we already have rather than making more!
Global federal War on Terrorism previously Communism
(The war is un-winnable because it makes more terrorists than it kills & actually fuels terror!) Bombing & invading nations makes more terrorists than it gets rid of and drives moderates to decide to become extremists to defend their religion!
US OCCUPATION FUELS TERRORISM!
Out of 190 countries around the globe the federal government occupies over 100!
Thats over half of the World!
Thats also why they call us IMPERIALISTS!
US occupation breeds terrorism especially in Muslim countries where it is a violation of their religion (It is forbidden for infidels to occupy holy lands & holy war may be used to remove them!)

You simply can not fight terrorism with an Army! Because when you send an Army into a village to get one terrorist, by the time they come back out (after violently invading homes, destroying private property & killing innocent people by accident or otherwise) you will find that you have many more terrorists than you managed to capture or kill!
By going after one terrorist in an unjust & illegal manner that violates the rights of others you will make several more if not hundreds!
Note: Our founding fathers were revolutionaries & the King of England sent his soldiers to round up these few troublesome revolutionaries in order to squash the rebellion. But after invading homes & private property, the King found out that the moderates (those who were in the middle & didnt want to fight) had turned & joined the revolutionaries!
The Colonists then terrorized the Kings men all the way out of America by using unconventional tactics that could have only seemed like terrorism to the Kings men! Unconventional tactics were the only way for the revolutionary farmers to stand up to & defeat the mightiest military in the world (at that time).
By using armies to fight terror we may make the moderate Muslims overtly side with the mighty US only to covertly side with & truly support their religion! This could drive the moderates to side with the extremists! But this is just what the Republican Right-Wing Religious Extremists in Washington want as all extremists do. They want to bring about Armageddon! This is them forcing their un-provable religious beliefs on all of us and we may all have to live in a living fiery hell on earth if they get their way & are wrong!
At the dawn of the first millennium, many religious extremists or true believers gave up all of their material wealth thinking that the end of the world was coming The Apocalypse. And so they ended up with nothing when it came to pass.
The Moral of the Story is: Believe what ever you like but dont force your beliefs on others by voting religious extremists into power! Bush wasnt voted in but took over so Im not talking about him but many others throughout the history of this nation.
If we stop making terrorists in the present - we well have a much safer future for us, our families, & our great Nation!
But if we fight terror globally with violence, we will fuel terror & the extremists only to motivate more terror! Terrorism will evolve! It took years for the terrorists to hit American soil but they did eventually! They used our planes to attack us & the next evolution of terror will likely be weapons of mass destruction on US Soil!
I dont want to see this or to see American citizens have to live like Israel! But thats where we are headed with the un-winnable federal war on terror. Moreover, we are now sending federal agents abroad to pre-empt terrorism from coming here to the US! Our federal agents going to Muslim Nations IN VIOLATION OF THEIR RELIGION will not make us safer but less safe my motivating more terrorism against American!
It is up to us Americans to change our government because these career politicians are corrupt beyond repair & will not admit wrong doing or mistakes, therefore they are doomed to repeat past mistakes as well as not being able to solve the problem when it is their fault!
(Check out this link for a good debate on US support for Israel, for example, fueling terrorism against Americans.)
US SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL FUELS TERRORISM!
When US Tanks, Helicopter Gunships, & other US weaponry are used by Israelis against Palestinians, this FUELS TERRORISM!
The US is supposed to be fair & just but WHERE is the Palestinian weaponry from the US?
-Why does the US support Israel but not Palestine?
-Why do we keep guns from the Palestinians (gun control)
-Injustice breeds hatred & motivates men to violence!

Us & Them
This is what the extremists on all sides want! They want the moderates to decide so as to clearly divide the world into two camps. Americans have the right not to take sides even when their president tells them that they must!
