the pilgrims who celebrated their first harvest, the ''First Thanksgiving

what do I mean about being thankful today for war, killing, destruction
many millions of turkeys and all the trimmings today are paid
for with profits from the endless, unconstitutional, grotesque
invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan and U.S. sanctioned murders in
Pakistan by drones? Not a very pleasant subject to interfere with

of foreign countries trying to kill an ideology, not

was destined to be picked off a long time ago. The way to do it
was to convince the American people Iraq was a threat to America
and when that didn't work, resort to justifying invasion as a
"war of liberation."
20, 2004: President
justifies U.S. war of 'liberation.' "There are still violent
thugs and murderers in Iraq, and we're dealing with them," Bush
said. "But no one can argue that the Iraqi people would be better
off with the thugs and murderers back in the palaces. Who would
prefer that Saddam's torture chambers still be open? Who would
wish that more mass graves were still being filled? Who would
begrudge the Iraqi people their long- awaited liberation?"
5.1 MILLION Iraq's are now displaced
in their own country or are refugees abroad. Estimates are
more than one million dead since the yippy-kay-yay cowboy, George
Bush, Jr., decided to invade that country. Recall the vomit spewed
by former SOS, Mad Madeleine Albright during a 60
Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq: "We have heard that a half
million children have died. I mean, that's more children than
died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?"
of State Madeleine Albright: "I think this is a very hard choice,
but the price--we think the price is worth it."
I doubt the parents of those children think it was worth it. The
people of Iraq and Afghanistan don't hate us because of our freedom,
they hate us for invading their countries and the wholesale slaughter
of men, women and children who have nothing to do with foreign
policy or terrorism.
awaited liberation," Mr. Bush? After killing a million or more
human beings and destroying their countries, the US has liberated
their population? Let me provide a bit of history here: Seven
times the U.S. government has engaged in unconstitutional nation
building - Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, East
Timor and Liberia. EVERY time it's been a monumental failure just
as Iraq and Afghanistan will be down the road. The U.S. Constitution
does not authorize Congress to steal from the people's treasury
to reconstruct or rebuild any foreign country.
Jeri Lynn Ball, a superb writer and thorough researcher:
Stalin's Russia, notes Mikhail Heller, enemies were blamed for
everything; they were used to justify the invasion of Czechoslovakia
(1968), the invasion of Afghanistan in 1980, and so on. The Soviet
Communists were thus able to manipulate Soviet citizens into supporting
government hunts for "terrorists," "traitors," and spies, for
"liberation wars" for humanity.
Marxist-Leninist strategies, the Russian, Chinese, and U.S. ruling
elites have sought to frighten Americans and other populations
with the specter of ruthless mass terror. They have created
enemies and blamed them for everything including terrorist acts.
They have used them ...to manipulate Americans into supporting
government hunts for "traitors," "terrorists," and these never
ending "wars of national liberation." Their aim is to manipulate
whole populations into supporting "wars of national liberation"
and achieving not only the sovietization of "liberated" underdeveloped
countries such as Afghanistan and Iraq, but also the full altruization
and sovietization of the United States and other Western nations."

and Osama Bin Laden. When the time came, "our" government turned
the tables and went after them with the might of our military

is business and business has been booming since before 9/11 when
Bush, Sr., began the toxic 'Persian
Gulf War' - something George Washington warned about with
words of wisdom:
great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in
extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little
political connection as possible. So far as we have already formed
engagements, let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here
let us stop. Europe has a set of primary interests which to us
have none; or a very remote relation. Hence she must be engaged
in frequent controversies, the causes of which are essentially
foreign to our concerns. Hence, therefore, it must be unwise in
us to implicate ourselves by artificial ties in the ordinary vicissitudes
of her politics, or the ordinary combinations and collisions of
her friendships or enmities.
detached and distant situation invites and enables us to pursue
a different course. If we remain one people under an efficient
government. the period is not far off when we may defy material
injury from external annoyance; when we may take such an attitude
as will cause the neutrality we may at any time resolve upon to
be scrupulously respected; when belligerent nations, under the
impossibility of making acquisitions upon us, will not lightly
hazard the giving us provocation; when we may choose peace or
war, as our interest, guided by justice, shall counsel.
forego the advantages of so peculiar a situation? Why quit our
own to stand upon foreign ground? Why, by interweaving our destiny
with that of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity
in the toils of European ambition, rivalship, interest, humor
or caprice? "It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent
alliances with any portion of the foreign world; so far, I mean,
as we are now at liberty to do it; for let me not be understood
as capable of patronizing infidelity to existing engagements.
I hold the maxim no less applicable to public than to private
affairs, that honesty is always the best policy. I repeat it,
therefore, let those engagements be observed in their genuine
sense. But, in my opinion, it is unnecessary and would be unwise
to extend them."

have to remember the underbelly was simply one more step to enforcing
a world government. From the lips of one of the most inept useful
fools ever to hold public office, Joe Biden. Old Joe gave a speech
titled ‘On the Threshold of the New World Order: The Wilsonian
Vision and American Foreign Policy in the 1900s and Beyond," addressed
to the U.S. Senate, Washington, DC, June 29, June 30 and July
years ago, an act of aggression by an Arab despot against a tiny
Arab sheikdom led the president of the U.S. [Bush, Sr.] to invoke
a magisterial phrase. He spoke, in rare visionary terms, of a
"New World Order" in which wrongs would be put right through collective
action...."One may surmise that the President did not follow through
with the concept of a New World Order because he had not thought
it through - just as the Administration has consistently lacked
any guiding principle that would give coherence to its policy
America Ready for Renewal and Change. To be more than merely utopian,
the American agenda for a New World Order must not only aspire
to realistic goals internationally, it must be grounded in the
only feasible foundation for the foreign policy of our democracy:
a sound base of public support."
the figures are a year old, one can see just how much of an
impact the military/industrial complex has on the economy:
Department of Defense is the single largest employer in the United
States, with 1.4 million uniformed personnel on active duty, and
more than 700,000 full-time civilians. The defense industry, meanwhile,
is believed to employ another 3 million people, either directly
more, these are high paying jobs. In 2010, when the average worker
in the United States earned $44,400 in wages and benefits, the
average within the aerospace and defense industry was $80,100,
according to a study by the consulting firm Deloitte. And 80 percent
of that industry's revenue comes from the government. "This, in
a nutshell," explains Veronique de Rugy in the January 2013 issue
of Reason magazine, "is why it's so hard to cut government spending
in general and military spending in particular." "Nearly everyone
knows someone who gets paid by the Pentagon.

companies profiting the most from war:
business of war is profitable. In 2011, the 100 largest contractors
sold $410 billion in arms and military services. Just 10 of those
companies sold over $208 billion. Based on a list of the top 100
arms-producing and military services companies in 2011 compiled
by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI),

spending in the U.S., which by far has the largest military budget
in the world. In 2000, the U.S. defense budget was approximately
$312 billion. By 2011, the figure had grown to $712 billion. Arm
sales grew alongside general defense spending growth. SIPRI noted
that between 2002 and 2011, arms sales among the top 100 companies
grew by 51%."

me tell you how one paycheck from a defense contractor employee
supports a local economy: Mr. Johnson deposits his paycheck in
his local bank. Banks are a business, so Mr. Johnson's check supports
that bank and its employees. Mr. Johnson might buy a ticket to
the Dallas Cowboys game which supports, besides the tv crews and
players, the local venders who sell and work in the stadiums.
The company that does grounds upkeep. Mr. Johnson pays a gardener
or membership to a gym. That gym might have fruit drink vendors
inside. Mrs. Johnson buys groceries with that paycheck, takes
clothes to the cleaners, buys clothes for the kiddies, weekly
dinner out night and all the different ways a family spends income.
The same applies to the thousands of lobbyists who buy the favors
of the hookers in the Outlaw Congress. All supporting local small
businesses, the backbone of America's economy.
that by active duty military, all the defense contractors in this
country, their hundreds of thousands of employees and lobbyists.
All those paychecks feeding the economy. All those paychecks from
war, killing, destruction and murder by drones. Add it all up
into the trillions. A huge chunk of the economy.
it's easy to rationalize those paychecks under the category of
patriotism, protecting our freedom or "Would you rather fight
them there or here?" Propaganda along with reminders of 9/11 when
doesn't change the fact that with America's dead economy, those
war paychecks are critical for spending. That turkey dinner today
paid for with war profits is obscene, but no one wants to talk
about it. Those on the receiving end don't want to be reminded
of the real cost of that paycheck and I'm sorry I have to write
I would ask the people of this country: Aren't you sick and tired
of war, killing, destruction and murdering innocent men, women
and children with drones? Has the story of '2 US soldiers killed
today in Afghanistan' become so common, you tune it out? Or those
who operate drones killing women and children calling the kills
"bug splats" (In
the US, mass child killings are tragedies. In Pakistan, mere bug
splats) become so common, you tune it out?
aren't the people on this earth tired of all the wars, killing,
destruction and misery from geopolitical games by the global elite
who lust for power over our lives for their own personal financial
gain? Because that's what all these wars are about. Power and
greed. Created by evil people while we the common folk around
the world pay the price in blood and money.
are the people in this country going to stop reelecting
the same war mongers who feed them lies and classic propaganda
to support the endless occupations of countries like Iraq and
Afghanistan? When are the people in this country going to stop
believing the lies and stop supporting more death and destruction?
Most won't because out of sight, out of mind. Just like the paycheck
that provided the Thanksgiving feast on the table today from war
Proper Role of America's Military is to defend our
shores. That's not isolationism, it's what our military
is for - not what we've seen for the past 12 years and in so many
undeclared "wars" over the decades.
closing, I'm sure Mr. Johnson, the fictitious defense contractor
employee I mention above is a nice man with a nice family just
trying to put food on the table for his family. But, it's not
about that, it's about undeclared wars under false pretenses bankrupting
our country while enriching a certain sector and the global elites.
Because war, killing, destruction has become so profitable, all
who get their paycheck from being part of them don't want it to
go away for obvious reasons. But, does that justify the enormous
cost in human lives (here and the Middle East) and money?
of our country being a self-sustaining, self-reliant, independent
producing country for all our needs, war, killing and destruction
now props up the dying economy. Perhaps this sounds pretty harsh,
especially on Thanksgiving, but it is the reality of war profits
and it's time Americans are reminded of the cost.
