DO YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY?
CAN YOU THINK INDEPENDENTLY AND CLEARLY FOR A FEW MOMENTS AND CONSIDER THINGS THAT ARE NOT BEING SAID IN OUR MIND-BENDING MAINSTREAM MEDIA?
<<What No One Wants to Hear About Benghazi
Congressional hearings, White House damage control, endless op-eds, accusations, and defensive denials. Controversy over the events in Benghazi last September took center stage in Washington and elsewhere last week. However, the whole discussion is again more of a sideshow. Each side seeks to score political points instead of asking the real questions about the attack on the US facility, which resulted in the death of US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
Republicans smell a political opportunity over evidence that the Administration heavily edited initial intelligence community talking points about the attack to remove or soften anything that might reflect badly on the president or the State Department.
Are we are supposed to be shocked by such behavior? Are we supposed to forget that this kind of whitewashing of facts is standard operating procedure when it comes to the US government?
Democrats in Congress have offered the even less convincing explanation for Benghazi, that somehow the attack occurred due to Republican sponsored cuts in the security budget at facilities overseas.
With a one trillion dollar military budget, it is hard to take this seriously.
It appears that the Administration scrubbed initial intelligence reports of references to extremist Islamist involvement in the attacks, preferring to craft a lie that the demonstrations were a spontaneous response to an anti-Islamic video that developed into a full-out attack on the US outpost.
Who can blame the administration for wanting to shift the focus?
The Islamic radicals who attacked Benghazi were the same people let loose by the US-led attack on Libya.
They were the rebels on whose behalf the US overthrew the Libyan government. Ambassador Stevens was slain by the same Islamic radicals he personally assisted just over one year earlier.
But the Republicans in Congress also want to shift the blame.
They supported the Obama Administration's policy of bombing Libya and overthrowing its government.
They also repeated the same manufactured claims that Gaddafi was "killing his own people" and was about to commit mass genocide if he was not stopped.
Republicans want to draw attention to the President's editing talking points in hopes no one will notice that if the attack on Libya they supported had not taken place, Ambassador Stevens would be alive today.
Neither side wants to talk about the real lesson of Benghazi:
interventionism always carries with it unintended consequences.
The US attack on Libya led to the unleashing of Islamist radicals in Libya. These radicals have destroyed the country, murdered thousands, and killed the US ambassador.
Some of these then turned their attention to Mali which required another intervention by the US and France.
Previously secure weapons in Libya flooded the region after the US attack, with many of them going to Islamist radicals who make up the majority of those fighting to overthrow the government in Syria.
The US government has intervened in the Syrian conflict on behalf of the same rebels it assisted in the Libya conflict, likely helping with the weapons transfers.
With word out that these rebels are mostly affiliated with al Qaeda, the US is now intervening to persuade some factions of the Syrian rebels to kill other factions before completing the task of ousting the Syrian government. It is the dizzying cycle of interventionism.
The real lesson of Benghazi will not be learned because neither Republicans nor Democrats want to hear it.
But it is our interventionist foreign policy and its unintended consequences that have created these problems, including the attack and murder of Ambassador Stevens.
The disputed talking points and White House whitewashing are just a sideshow.>>
THOSE WORDS WERE WRITTEN LAST WEEK BY ....RON PAUL.
THOSE WHO WISH TO 'BLAME' SOMEONE FOR BENGHAZI, BLAME THE IDIOT WHO ORDERED GADDAFI TAKEN OUT, BLAME WHOMEVER DECIDED TO HAVE EVEN ONE OF OUR OWN IN LIBYA, WHETHER TROOPS, DIPLOMATS, OR THE CIA.
WE HAD PRISONERS IN THAT COMPOUND, THE CIA WAS 'QUESTIONING' THEM, AND THE PEOPLE AROUND THERE OBVIOUSLY KNEW ALL THAT.
IMAGINE HOW THAT INCENSED THOSE WHO ALREADY HATED AMERICA?
IMAGINE THAT SOME OF THOSE "TRUSTED LIBYANS" WHOM WE HAD PLAYING 'GUARDS' WERE ACTUALLY, LIKE SO MANY HAVE BEEN IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN, COMPLETELY OPPOSED TO ANY AMERICAN PRESENCE AND WERE REPORTING TO THOSE "RADICALS" WE KEEP HEARING ABOUT.
HOW MANY MORE LIVES WILL THE 'GENIUSES' IN WASHINGTON SEND OVER THERE AS SACRIFICIAL LAMBS IN THEIR ETERNAL POWER-PLAY?
HOW MANY WILL WE HAVE TO LOSE BEFORE IT DAWNS ON THE U.S. 'MASTERMINDS' THAT AS LONG AS THE SUN SHINES AND THE WINDS BLOW, THE VAST MAJORITY OF PEOPLE IN THE MIDDLE EAST WILL HATE AMERICA FOR THE TWO IRAQ INVASIONS, FOR AFGHANISTAN, FOR ALL THE DRONE STRIKES ALL OVER THAT AREA, AND FOR SIMPLY EXISTING?
ASIDE FROM EVEN THAT, ISLAM CANNOT AND WILL NOT ACCEPT THE PRESENCE OF 'INFIDELS', OF THOSE WHO REFUSE TO CONVERT!
GIVE IT UP, LET IT GO!
YOU CAN'T PLAY BOTH ENDS AGAINST THE MIDDLE, AND THAT'S WHAT THE U.S.' CHIEF MORONS HAVE BEEN DOING SINCE 1953, OR BEFORE!
WE'VE BEEN CAUGHT GIVING WEAPONS TO IRAN WHILE FUNDING SADDAM, AND FOR ACCEPTING A "HIT LIST" FROM PAKISTAN IN RETURN FOR GIVING US AIRSPACE FOR DRONES TO HIT TARGETS IN JUST ABOUT EVERY MIDEAST NATION OVER THERE.
WE SLIPPED KARZAI INTO THE TOP SLOT IN AFGHANISTAN, THEN TOOK OUT HIS BROTHER, AND NOW HE'S FLIRTING WITH IRAN.
WE USE ISRAEL TO DO SOME OF OUR 'DIRTY WORK' WHILE ARMING EVERY ENEMY SHE HAS.
WE LOVED BOTH MUBARAK AND ASSAD, BUT NOW LOOK!
WE CALLED THE SHAH OF IRAN AN ALLY, THEN WHAT HAPPENED?
WE ARMED AND TRAINED THE TALIBAN IN THE 1970s AND 1980s, THEN RENAMED THEM "AL QAEDA" AND SET ALL THE WORLD ON THEM WHO WOULD BOW TO U.S. WISHES!
DON'T YOU SEE?
IT'S ALL A LUNATIC ASYLUM CREATED AND RUN BY OUR OWN LUNATICS!
BUT THEY AREN'T THE ONES DYING OVER THERE!
CHRIS STEVENS , OUR TROOPS, EVEN HIRELINGS LIKE BLACKWATER ARE DYING OVER THERE, AND CHILDREN, SO MANY CHILDREN...AND THE REASON IS AMERICA JUST WON'T GET THE HELL OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST, STOP PLAYING 'POLICEMAN' TO THE WHOLE WORLD, STOP SHOPPING FOR NATURAL RESOURCES THERE, AND KEEP OUR TROOPS HERE TO 'POLICE' THE REAL TERRORISTS, THOSE ON CAPITOL HILL.
WE'RE STILL IN JAPAN AND GERMANY...90 YEARS AFTER THE FIRST INVASIONS THERE.
WE'RE IN THE PHILIPPINES, CUBA, ENGLAND, SOUTH AMERICA, 120+ NATIONS OF EARTH, EVERYWHERE, EVEN IN ALLY NATIONS...IF WE HAVE ALLIES! EVERYWHERE BUT HERE, WHERE OUR BEST OUGHT TO BE...HOME!
WHY KEEP OUR MILITARY STRETCHED SO THIN?
WHY KEEP THEM AFIELD FOR OVER 90 YEARS NOW?
REAL "HOMELAND SECURITY" IS HAVING ALL OUR MILITARY RIGHT HERE, READY TO PROTECT AMERICA FROM THOSE DESTROYING HER...FROM WITHIN!
THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST AND ALL THE OIL IN IT...IS IT WORTH EVEN ONE AMERICAN LIFE?
IT ISN'T TO ME!
THAT AREA HAS BEEN IN TURMOIL FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS BEFORE AMERICA WAS EVEN A DREAM, AND IT WILL BE IN TURMOIL ON THE LAST DAY OF HUMAN CIVILIZATION!
LEAVE THEM TO IT!
LET THEM GO!
OTHER NATIONS KNOW TO EXPECT AMERICA THERE!
<<What happens in Libya is a harbinger of what the West has in store for Africa. Africa is too rich in resources that the world needs to be allowed to control its own destiny. This war is not just about Gaddafi. It is an opening salvo in a war to reclaim the continent for foreign interests, just as it was in 1896 in the Scramble for Africa.
According to the United Nations Human Development Index and the Africa Development Bank country profile, Libya under Gaddafi rule was rated the best place to live in Africa.
The criteria employed by the UN when measuring this index is life expectancy, availability to health and educational services, poverty index and access to other basics of life.
These achievements were not based on oil revenue - other countries like Nigeria and Gabon rank better in this regard - but sheer work of Libyan leaders. For example, Libya has the biggest man-made river in the world, established in 1984 to irrigate the entire country and which supports 70 per cent of the country's population.
But now the sovereign government of Libya has been overthrown in a blatant Western armed, sponsored and supported coup by the striking arm of the new imperialism...NATO>>
THE VERY DAY THAT AMERICA AND HER ALLIES DECIDED TO PLAY OVERLORD TO THE MIDDLE EASTERN NATIONS, TO SAUDI ARABIA'S ENEMIES, TO THOSE NATIONS WHO BEGAN THE CRY OF "GOLD FOR OIL", THE DAY WE DECIDED THAT INVASIONS AND BOMBINGS AND DRONE ATTACKS WERE A-OK, WE SEALED THE FATE OF CHRIS STEVENS AND ALL THE REST WHO BECOME EASY MARKS FOR RETRIBUTION.
NEITHER IRAQ NOR AFGHANISTAN, NOT LIBYA OR EGYPT, NOT SYRIA NOR IRAN, NONE OF THOSE NATIONS SENT HIJACKERS TO DESTROY AMERICA.
REMEMBER WHAT NATIONALITY THOSE HIJACKERS' I.D.s SHOWED?
SAUDI ARABIAN, WASN'T IT?
[SEE EVIDENCE OF SAUDI INVOLVEMENT BELOW AT ***]
AND BY ALL MEANS, READ HERE:
THE DAY AMERICA DECIDES TO GO AFTER THAT NATION THAT HAS FINANCED TERRORIST AGENDA FOR DECADES, GOOD OLD SAUDIA ARABIA, I'LL SIGN UP TO GO MYSELF!
WHEN DEALING WITH A VIPER, FIRST CUT OFF ITS HEAD!
MURDERED BY THOSE WE ARMED...NOTHING MAKES SENSE ABOUT THE U.S. IN LIBYA!
Stevens and three others were murdered by the SAME Libyan radicals that almost ALL of Congress, the White House, and the dumb-downed American people supported, funded, ARMED, and set on Gaddafi to find and murder him, based on the lies that convinced AMERICANS that OUR man in Libya, a man America had used time and time again in that region, was suddenly turned genocidal maniac and had to be erased from the earth.
NO, NO, MY FRIENDS, IT MERELY BECAME 'INCONVENIENT' TO AMERICA AND PERHAPS TO THE SAUDIS FOR GADDAFI TO CONTINUE TO LIVE.
HE WAS HEADED IN A NEW DIRECTION, ONE AWAY FROM WESTERN INFLUENCE, AND HE WAS MAKING TOO MUCH REAL PROGRESS IN AN AFRICAN NATION!
LOOK, look at this video of Gaddafi riding for a long period of time through the streets of the LIBYAN capital!
LOOK at how the people, taken by surprise by his sudden appearance on their street, respond to him!
LOOK at how he was not at all worried about being shot dead by one of his own people as he rode completely exposed for miles!
WHAT AMERICAN PRESIDENT WOULD TAKE SUCH A RISK...SINCE KENNEDY?
NELSON MANDELA, WHOM MOST AMERICANS ADMIRE, LIKED THE MAN!
He called Gaddafi a "true son of Africa", and that's what he was TO MILLIONS.
When Mandela visited Gadhafi, he was quoted as saying, “Those who object to my visiting Libya have no morals, and I will not join them because I have morals.
Qadhafi is my friend.
He helped us at a time when we were alone. And the ones who are stopping us from coming here were helping our enemies at that time."
[WHETHER SPELLED GADDAFI, GHADAFI, OR QADHAFI, I SPEAK OF THE SAME MAN.]
WHAT DID GADDAFI DO THAT MOST OF HIS PEOPLE LOVED HIM FOR?
~He nationalized Libya’s oil reserves (something the American-based oil companies hated him for) and used the oil revenue to build schools, hospitals and repair infrastructure for the Libyan people.
~Money from Libya's oil revenue was directly deposited into the bank account of every Libyan.
~During his rule, the life expectancy in Libya was raised from 44 years to 75 years.
~During his rule, the literacy rate was raised from 20 percent to 83 percent.
~All people in Libya had access to doctors, hospitals, clinics and medicines. And it was free!
~Basic food items were subsidized and electricity was made available throughout the country.
~Any Libyan who wanted to become a farmer was given free use of land, a house, farm equipment, livestock and seed.
~Under Gaddafi, women had full access to education, employment; and Gadhafi enabled them to serve in the armed forces.
~He was the first and only leader in the Arab world to formally apologize for the Arab role in the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.
~He put up a 21st century communications satellite—the first in Africa. This upset European companies who then lost a stream of income that came from their outrageous fees imposed on Africans.
~Gaddafi vowed that his own parents, who lived in a tent in the desert, would not be housed until every Libyan was housed. He made his word bond. Under Gaddafi, Libya attained the highest standard of living in Africa.
~Gadhafi started and financed the African Union with the purpose of developing the “United States of Africa.” This was and is something the Western world did not want.
~PERHAPS THE MAIN THING THAT GADDAFI DID, THE THING THAT MADE HIM A TARGET, THAT ENDED HIS LIFE, WAS THAT HE, LIKE SADDAM HUSSEIN, PROPOSED TO DEMAND GOLD FOR OIL FROM ALL NATIONS.
GOLD...SOMETHING THE U.S. HAS VERY LITTLE OF. GOLD, NOT FIAT CURRENCY.
THERE IS CONSIDERABLY MORE, MUCH MORE, GOOD THAT GADDAFI DID, AS MOST OF LIBYA'S CITIZENS WOULD TELL YOU, IF THEY COULD,
BUT DOES ANYONE CARE ABOUT THE GOOD MEN DO, AS COMPARED TO THE POWER THAT THEY WIELD BY THE EVIL THEY ACCOMPLISH, THE FEAR THEY INSTILL, AND THE ATROCITIES THEY GET AWAY WITH?
OTHERS WILL SAY HE WAS EVIL...AND THEY'D BE RIGHT, IN SOME WAYS, AS WELL.
HERE IN AMERICA, LIKE MOST OF THE REST OF THE WORLD, WE'RE TOLD WHO IS BAD, WHO IS GOOD, AND WE SELDOM QUESTION WHAT OUR 'PARTY' SAYS, WHAT OUR PRESS TELLS US, WHAT WE SEE ON TV, WHAT OUR 'HEROES' SAY.
WE JUST BLINDLY FOLLOW, ACCEPT, AND AGREE.
YOU MUST UNDERSTAND, THE ENTIRE WORLD BOUGHT SLAVES OUT OF AFRICA AND USED THOSE SLAVES TO BUILD THEIR OWN NATIONS AND EMPIRES.
THE ENTIRE WORLD HAS RUSHED TO ACQUIRE AND USE AFRICA'S RICH RESOURCES, UNMINDFUL OF WHAT THAT USE DOES TO THE AFRICAN ENVIRONMENT OR ITS PEOPLE.
THE ENTIRE WORLD HAS REFUSED TO DO MUCH OF ANY LASTING GOOD OR IMPORTANCE TO HELP AFRICANS LIFT AFRICA OUT OF POVERTY AND SUBSERVIENCE.
REMEMBER THE VIDEO I POSTED OF THE PAST PRESIDENT OF THE WORLD BANK WHINING THAT AFRICAN ECONOMY HAD IMPROVED, THAT AFRICA WAS EMERGING FROM THE DARK AGES?
[SEE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6a0zhc1y_Ns ]
WHO'S AFRAID OF A 'NEW AFRICA", A MORE ECONOMICALLY STABLE AFRICA, AN AFRICA THAT HAS VERY MUCH TO TRADE ON THE WORLD MARKET...TRADE FOR GOLD MAYBE?
MANDELA CALLED GADDAFI A "SON OF AFRICA", AND HE WAS THAT.
WAS HE PERFECT?
WAS HE ALL GOOD, OR ALL BAD?
ARE OUR LEADERS?
HE WAS A LEADER WELL-LOVED BY THE MAJORITY OF LIBYAN CITIZENS, A FACT YOU CAN FIND FOR YOURSELVES BY ASKING THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES, READING INTERVIEWS WITH THEM, OR WATCHING THE GRIEF OF LIBYA'S AND OTHER AFRICAN NATIONS' CITIZENS IN NEWS VIDEO AFTER VIDEO AFTER HE WAS KILLED.
YOU WON'T FIND THOSE VIDEOS OF THEIR GRIEF ON AMERICAN TV REPORTS.
YOU WERE DUPED AGAIN, AMERICA!
NO LEADER ON EARTH WAS OR IS LOVED BY ALL....NOT ONE!
NOT THE POPE, NOT ANY HEAD OF STATE, NO ONE!
LOOK AT AMERICA, A NATION SPLIT IN HALF BY THOSE WHO HATE REPUBLICANS AND THOSE WHO HATE DEMOCRATS, AND THE LEADERS OF EACH PARTY.
WHEN BUSH2 WAS IN OFFICE, HALF THE COUNTRY CALLED FOR HIM TO BE TRIED AS A WAR CRIMINAL.
NOW IT'S OBAMA, AND HALF WANT TO SEE HIM, AT LEAST, TARRED, FEATHERED, AND RODE OUT OF TOWN ON A RAIL.
NO MATTER WHO IS ELECTED NEXT ROUND, HALF THIS 2-PARTY NATION WILL DESPISE HIM, OR HER, AND BLAME ALL OUR ILLS ON WHOMEVER WINS THE WHITE HOUSE!
IS ANY NATION DIFFERENT?
DOES ANY NATION HAVE ONE LEADER THEY CAN POINT TO IN HISTORY OR NOW AND CLAIM THAT "EVERYONE LOVED HIM"?
DID I PERSONALLY LIKE GADDAFI?
NOR DID I DISLIKE HIM.
HE WAS A TRUE "STUDY", A VERY COMPLEX ONE.
DID I AGREE WITH THE U.S. TARGETING HIM?
I HAVE WATCHED THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT CREATE PUPPETS IN OTHER NATIONS ONE DAY, AND TURN ON THEM THE NEXT DAY FOR WAY OVER 50 YEARS NOW.
WHO DIED AND LEFT AMERICA AS "KING OF THE WORLD", OR HANDED OUR CIA AND OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES THE RIGHT TO DEPOSE OR EVEN DESTROY THE LEADERS OF OTHER SOVEREIGN NATIONS?
IF ANYONE TRIED THAT HERE IN AMERICA, I DARE SAY WE'D ALL LOCK AND LOAD AND HUNT THEM DOWN, RIGHT?
I BELIEVE IN THE ABILITY OF EVERY NATION TO RULE ITSELF, TO EITHER PUT UP WITH ITS LEADERS, OR GET RID OF THEM...ALL BY THEMSELVES.
WAS GADDAFI TARGETED BECAUSE HE PUBLICLY ATTACKED THE SAUDIS, WHOM AMERICA HAS LONG PLAYED THE WHORE TO?
AND THE SAUDI RESPONSE?
WELL, PRIOR TO WALKING OUT...THE IGNOBLE KING OF SAUDI ARABIA WAS MIFFED!
BLOGGER WON'T ALLOW THE UPLOAD OF THIS VIDEO, BUT GO WATCH IT.
IS THIS ANOTHER REASON GADDAFI WAS TAKEN OUT?
THE SAUDI KING WAS INSULTED THAT HIS ARAB 'BROTHERS' HEARD THE TRUTH FROM THE LIBYAN?
AND THEN, IN A SPEECH FROM 2008, GADDAFI PERHAPS PREDICTED HIS OWN DEMISE, THAT OF EGYPT'S MUBARAK, AND WHO ELSE WILL YET FALL?
ANOTHER OF IRAN'S PRESIDENTS?
(AMERICA TOOK OUT ANOTHER IRANIAN RULER IN 1953, AFTER ALL.)
WHO ELSE WILL FALL, AS GADDAFI PREDICTED?
WHO ELSE WILL BE MADE TO FALL FROM POWER BY AMERICAN AGENCIES?
ANYONE THE ALL-POWERFUL AMERICAN GOVERNMENT DECIDES TO ELIMINATE, THAT'S WHO.
ANY LEADER WHO FAILS TO 'HEAR AND OBEY" WHATEVER THE U.S. AND ITS "ALLIES" MANDATE, THAT'S WHO.
AMERICA FUNDED THOSE WHO OVERTHREW MUBARAK, WITH TAXPAYER HELP, OF COURSE.
THOSE HAVE NOW TURNED ON THE U.S.
THE LIBYAN RADICALS HAVE NOW TURNED ON THE U.S. AS WELL.
THE SYRIAN "REBELS" THE USA IS FUNDING, 'BACKING', HAVE ALREADY BEGUN TO TURN AND BITE THE HAND THAT FED THEM.
SADDAM 'TURNED', AS IS KARZAI.
CAN WE COUNT ALL THOSE WE PUT INTO 'OFFICE' AND THEN TOOK OUT?
THE SYRIAN 'REBELS' WE'RE CURRENTLY SUPPORTING, THEY ALSO EAT THE HEARTS OF THOSE THEY KILL...THE ONES WE CURRENTLY "SUPPORT" IN SYRIA ARE ALSO...CANNIBALS???
WARNING: THIS IS NO FAKE VIDEO...IT IS THE LEAST GRAPHIC AND SHORTEST VERSION I COULD FIND.
SO, WHILE YOU WATCH THE UNFOLDING SAGA OF BENGHAZI,
THE "WHO'S TO BLAME GAME" UP ON THE HILL IN OLD D.C., AS YOU READ ALL THE TWISTS AND SPINS IN THE 'NEWS' ARTICLES, AS YOU TAKE SIDES ONCE AGAIN, AMERICA, WORLD, ON WHO IS TO BLAME FOR THOSE EMBASSY DEATHS IN BENGHAZI, MAYBE YOU COULD FORCE YOURSELVES TO ASK WHAT IF....
WHAT IF IT WAS HOW WE'VE HANDLED THIS ENTIRE "MIDDLE EAST CRISIS" THING THAT HAS MADE US ENEMIES WHO WILL NOT REST UNTIL AMERICA AND ITS ALLIES ARE EXTERMINATED, OR AT LEAST MADE TO PAY FOR WHAT THESE RADICALS SEE AS "THE SINS OF THE INFIDELS"...THAT'D BE US.
HOW MANY MORE, ON BOTH 'SIDES', WILL DIE BEFORE WE REALIZE HOW TO STOP THE MADNESS?
WHETHER GADDAFI WAS SAINT OR DEVIL, THE WAY HE WAS TARGETED WAS WRONG.
THE WAY THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST "SITUATION" HAS BEEN HANDLED FOR OVER 60 YEARS NOW IS WRONG.
CAN WE HONESTLY SAY GADDAFI WAS WORSE THAN OUR LEADERS?
THE WAY AMERICA AND HER ALLIES HAVE BECOME BULLIES TO THE WORLD WHILE PLAYING THE WHORE TO THE OIL PRODUCING SAUDIS AND THEIR ALLIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST IS ALSO WRONG.
I'M REMINDED OF AN OLD RON PAUL VIDEO THAT OPENED A FEW EYES SOME YEARS BACK...SEE IF IT SPEAKS TO THE CURRENT MADNESS, IF IT MAKES ANY SENSE NOW, AFTER BENGHAZI....
AND HERE IS THE TEXT OF THAT SPEECH:
<<Ron Paul: “Madam Speaker, I have a few questions for my colleagues.
What if our foreign policy of the past century is deeply flawed and has not served our national security interest?
What if we wake up one day and realize that the terrorist threat is the predictable consequence of our meddling in the affairs of others, and has nothing to do with us being free and prosperous?
What if propping up repressive regimes in the Middle East endangers both the United States and Israel?
What if occupying countries like Iraq and Afghanistan and bombing Pakistan is directly related to the hatred directed toward us?
What if someday it dawns on us that losing over 5,000 American military personnel in the Middle East since 9/11 is not a fair tradeoff with the loss of nearly 3,000 American citizens no matter how many Iraqi, Pakistani, Afghan people are killed or displaced?
What if we finally decide that torture, even if called “enhanced interrogation technique”, is self-destructive and produces no useful information and that contracting it out to a third world nation is just as evil?
What if it is finally realized that war and military spending is always destructive to the economy?
What if all war-time spending is paid for through the deceitful and evil process of inflating and borrowing?
What if we finally see that war-time conditions always undermine personal liberty?
What if Conservatives who preach small government wake up and realize that our interventionist foreign policy provides the greatest incentive to expand the government?
What if Conservatives understood once again that their only logical position is to reject military intervention and managing an empire throughout the world?
What if the American people woke up and understood that the official reasons for going to war are almost always based on lies and promoted by war propaganda in order to serve special interests?
What if we as a nation came to realize that the quest for empire eventually destroys all great nations?
What if Obama has no intention of leaving Iraq?
What if a military draft is being planned for for the wars that would spread if our foreign policy is not changed?
What if the American people learned the truth, that our foreign policy has nothing to do with national security, that it never changes from one administration to the next?
What if war in preparation for war is a racket serving the special interests?
What if President Obama is completely wrong about Afghanistan and it turns out worse than Iraq and Vietnam put together?
What if Christianity actually teaches peace and not preventive wars of aggression?
What if diplomacy is found to be superior to bombs and bribes in protecting America?
What happens if my concerns are completely unfounded?
But what happens if my concerns are justified and ignored?
And I yield back the balance of my time.”>>

THINK....LEARN, OR PERISH.

***SAUDI INVOLVEMENT WITH, CELEBRATION OF 9/11.
FBI Report Implicates Saudi Government in 9/11
A 9/11 Commissioner and Co-Chair of the Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 say in sworn declarations that the Saudi government is linked to the 9/11 attacks.
REFERENCING THE STORY BY THE NEW YORK TIMES:
The Miami Herald provided more evidence of a Saudi link:
<<The information in the documents runs counter to previous FBI statements. It also adds to concerns raised by official investigations but never fully explored, that the full truth about Saudi Arabia and the 9/11 attacks has not yet been told.
National security and other reasons are cited for numerous additional deletions scattered across the 31 released pages. Four more pages were withheld in their entirety.>>
