63. Unless it's a radical change, there's not much hope of different strategy.
They haven't invested all of this time trumping up hatred and racism against any who don't agree with this empire building, for nothing. The phrase "you're with us or against us" has become a practical national mantra and nationalistic fervor is higher than it's been in a long time in this country. They're already beginning to label anti-war activists as "insurgents", so it's a small leap to the next level.

Unless the righteous outrage reaches an equal boiling point to those in the Muslim nations, where those leaders are forced to listen and respond to their populations, we'll be on a mad spiral to all-hell-breaking-loose and effectively helpless to change or stop this warring policy that those in both parties aspire to. Until we recognize exactly who is carrying out massive terrorism, occupying, and bringing sovereign nations to their knees under the pretense of "establishing democracy", "searching for WMD", routing out forces of "Evil", or "self defense", the murders and bombing will go on unchecked, all with our blessing and in our name.

There is a national rally this Saturday, which at least gives voice to those who seek Peace as an option. Those sort of "randomizing events" should grow, as our leaders take us further down, and now is not the time to worry about what the guy marching beside you has painted on his sign. We have much to lose if we continue to sit idle and expect elections or the UN or any leader to change what's happening, right before our eyes.
