US Out of WAR, NOW!


Even with Obama in Charge, Anti-War Democrats Powerless

It’s not about Afghanistan or Iraq. It’s about war as an instrument of foreign policy.

The united States government has used the military as the strong arm of big business for over two hundred years, having learned the techniques well from our bloody British ancestors. Big Business walks softly about the planet, carrying the big sticks of the CIA, NSA, Pentagon and now a phalanx of pecuniary mercenaries, in the fight for the fun of it as much as the money, paving the way for Big Oil, Big Pharma and Big Agriculture, their paths greased by American consumers ground under their wheels.

Torture, mutilation, genocide, and environmental destruction are the collateral damage of official uS policy. Too bad our fancy flying robot murderers kill more innocent children, grandparents, brides and grooms and party guests than targeted combatants. Fortunes of war. The “acceptable” (for us) price (for them) of spreading democracy. Let’s spread it thick!

Countries have life spans just like their citizens. It’s time for the united States to grow up. We have a new Democratic President and a Democratic Congress. If there ever was a time to steer this country from the path of it war, it is now.

Let’s make it so.

  1. Yeah, well, don’t count on it. Alternet just ran a story about Obama appointing General Stanley McChrystal, a Cheney favorite, master of special operations, assassinations and death squads.

    Having Democrats in Congress and in the White House means nothing when it comes to the war machine.
