Oh, Bomb A Country

Has it been Obama's first hundred days yet? If not, oh well ...
Somewhere deep in the heart of white suburbia, there's a temple ... Within the temple is a shrine ... On this shrine sits a retarded redneck who's absolutely petrified that the events of the 1984 Patrick Swayze movie Red Dawn will somehow come to pass unless the military-industrial complex is CONstantly given a blank check. Why do I refer to it as a shrine in a temple? Because that's the way Obama treats retarded rednecks, like GODS. All it takes is the mere prospect of being called wimpy or un-American for Democrats to instantly become utterly indistinguishable from Republicans when it comes to saber rattling.
If Obama was half the man his fans think he is, an apology to the people of the Middle East in general and Iraqis in particular would've been made by him by now. During said apology, the following from the February 11th, 2006 edition of the Los Angeles Times should've been brought up: "Huddled with aides at the White House, President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair were not sure there was enough evidence to convince the Security Council. Without the council's explicit authorization, their plans for an invasion to depose Saddam Hussein could be difficult to defend under international law. Bush proposed an alternative: paint a U.S. spy plane in United Nations colors and see if that didn't tempt Hussein's forces to shoot at it. In any case, he said, the war was 'penciled in' for March 10 and the United States would go ahead with or without a second U.N. resolution. Blair replied that he was 'solidly with' the president."
Despite what FOX News usually spews, we the people are NOT in any real danger. Even if 9-11 wasn't an inside job, Michael Moore nailed it like the Romans nailed Jesus in Dude, Where's My Country? "Your chance as an American of dying in an act of terrorism in this country was 1 in 100,000 ... The suicide rate alone means that YOU were a greater danger to yourself than any terrorist."
Moore's wisdom is worth repeating, "Your chance as an American of dying in an act of terrorism in this country was 1 in 100,000 ... The suicide rate alone means that YOU were a greater danger to yourself than any terrorist."
I opened with Obi Wan Kenobi's quote from Revenge of the Sith for a reason -- as Professor Howard Zinn wrote in A People's History of the United States, "In 1984, the CIA admitted that it had exaggerated Soviet military expenditures, that since 1975 it had claimed Soviet military spending was growing by 4 to 5 percent each year when the actual figure was 2 percent. Thus, by misinformation, even deception, the result was to inflate military expenditures."
Now, who benefits from such lies? An elite of weapons manufacturers who're in MC Hammer mansions while the rest of us live from check to check (or beg for spare change). Think about it: If your MTV Cribs lifestyle hinges on the sale of bombs, and bombs ain't regularly detonated, your trophy wife is going to bail on you with a quickness! Therefore, you HAVE to lie and claim the boogeyman's gonna getcha -- hence the prevalence of films like Patrick Swayze's Red Dawn ...
The whole world is suffering because white suburbia is too stupid to realize it's being suckered by the aforementioned elitists. Rather than expose this scam, most peace activists CONstantly tiptoe around the feelings of über-patriots since supposedly the worst case, nightmare scenario is for soldiers to be spit upon as they rarely-if-ever were after tours in Vietnam (another lie-based invasion/occupation).
Two things: One, it's pretty safe to say the NAPALM poured on the Vietnamese was FAR more painful than a globule of saliva -- so it's high time whites finally learn to keep things in perspective. Two, respect must be earned, and if the goal is to get folks like me to respect America's armed forces, they better join Amnesty International and act accordingly.
A Republican and WWII general by the name of President Dwight D. Eisenhower not only warned us about the military-industrial complex, but he sounded like a commie at an anti-war protest when this was said to the American Society of Newspaper Editors on April 16th, 1953, "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense."
I LIKE IKE! And the military-industrial complex won't be spending the sweat of this laborer! I will NOT pay taxes or pay back my student loans so long as a single nuclear missile exists! Put my black ass in the cell next to Wesley Snipes for tax evasion, for all I care!
All this damn whining about the economy when all it takes to fix everything is PEACE ...
