2. Because we can.
"A piece of logic: If a country we attacked had never threatened us or our freedom, then necessarily our soldiers who die
there cannot have been defending us. They died for empire, not liberty." ~~ /

This country is so obsessed with money and death. Overseas, we bomb and shoot innocent people who have done nothing to
deserve their fate and in this country we kill our own for profit by denying them health care or sending them to wars we
start. This nation's greatest export are arms and ammunition.

Can't we love our country without killing our soldiers? Can't we love our country without killing people around the world
for profit?

Spreading Freedom? What kind of freedom needs a gun barrel to enforce it? The wild West ended over a century ago. The mentality that accompanied it should have died then also. However the wild west mentality is still alive and well in the
minds of the paranoid, reality challenged war supporters. Saddam had nothing to do with 9/11. Afghanistan has a few caves
and no government to speak of. With the tens of billions we spend on our military for wars and we can't find a man with
kidney disease in one of those caves? So we bomb wedding parties for something to show for the money? No wonder this
country is sliding into 3rd world status.
