We are all as Americans immersed in a matrix of militarism and imperialism since birth; to fight against it, then, is often seen as un-American.
Stop listening to the screech of war hawks. Invest in life instead of death.
No matter which party claims victory, the true victor remains the military-industrial-Congressional complex.
We as a nation need to demand that military leaders serve with honor and integrity; this is far more important to the future of our military and our country than gargantuan military budgets and loads of exotic and expensive weaponry.
I believe that if Americans were really being honest on the issue, some might concede they actually miss the Cold War.
