What we need to do

First we need to get out of Iraq's backup war, Afghanistan. That also means getting out of Afghanistan's back up wars, Iran and Pakistan.
While that is going on, we need to work on removing our troops from South America also.
We also need to work to get control of the MIC and big business's that are behind these wars.

In order to do the above, we need to first define the problem. The problem is us, U.S., exploiting everybody and everything for money - Profits. People have value also. And not as slave labor either.

We as a country do not see that. We are the self serving cold blooded sociopath loose in this world. Yes we are. For example when we kill, murder is better term, a suspected terrorist, we also kill any men, women and children around them.
We blow up houses in residential neighborhoods, vehicles on crowed, busy streets in the Middle Eastern cities, all from the safety of a room in California.

This isn't war, this is high tech murder. Far worse than a border patrol's 9mm against rock throwers on the other side of the Rio Grande.

We have a sanitized name for this type of murder. "Collateral damage". We as a nation just blow it off as "It's their fault. We are at war. They should not have been there..."

Well folks, they LIVE there, we don't. We are the invaders in their country. They have not done us, U.S. any harm. The reverse cannot be said to be true. No country has attacked us, yet we attack and invade other countries and kill their citizens in the name of terrorism. Who are the real terrorist here?

Bring our troops home. Use the money saved to rebuild our country. To get our living wage jobs back. To take the welfare of our own citizens into consideration for a change. We should not be a nation dependent on killing to keep our economy going.

Allow the wronged countries to bring Nuremberg style trials of our war criminals. Only our own arrogance is stopping us.

1984 and Animal Farm are books written over 60 years ago. Warnings that apply to us today. We are ignoring those warning. That will be our own destruction

Bring our troops home and close the over 700 military bases we have outside our borders around the world. We may be the policeman for the world, but we are a corrupt police force.
