Heartfelt thanks to our misled and unprotected warriors

On Memorial Day, we'd like to express sympathy to our soldiers, through no fault of their own, for tragically serving our Supreme Commander in restoring the opium trade in Afghanistan, in plunging Iraq into chaos, in lining the pockets of our administration's cronies, Halliburton and Bechtel, and in watching the proud name of our Army defaced by torturers who were given the greenlight by the Supreme Commander and the Secretary of Defense, who let the grunts take responsibilty for abusive practises that they encouraged.

Proud warriors all, you had the misfortune to serve under a Supreme Commander and a Vice-President who made it their business to evade the military service you so valiantly provide, and who as selfish cowards were all the more ready to commit all you brave soldiers to an unnecessary war under false pretenses, and without such bare necessities as vehicle protection against explosive devices.

We are sorry that you continue to die and be horribly wounded for their lies, and sincerely hope that you will one day be allowed to return to our homeland to heal your wounds -- physical, psychological and moral -- in peace.

Well said Adam.

It breaks my heart to hear Bush defend the life of microscopic cells, while he sends our children to die.

He funds Israel, knowing that this will lead to the building of the prophesized temple of Armageddon, and the breakout of an even bigger war.

He preaches tolerance for Islam, while inciting hatred among her people.

He pushes for support of a Christian Theocracy at home, which will ultimately divide our nation.

He has failed us all, and his legacy will be written in the blood of every nation’s people.

For the sake of our children, who are dying in this war, we must awaken the nation to the truth behind this Christocratic administration.

Bill Moyers explained it thus:

“Who are they? I mean the people obsessed with control, using the government to threaten and intimidate. I mean the people who are hollowing out middle-class security even as they enlist the sons and daughters of the working class in a war to make sure Ahmed Chalabi winds up controlling Iraq's oil. I mean the people who turn faith-based initiatives into a slush fund and who encourage the pious to look heavenward and pray so as not to see the long arm of privilege and power picking their pockets. I mean the people who squelch free speech in an effort to obliterate dissent and consolidate their orthodoxy into the official view of reality from which any deviation becomes unpatriotic heresy.”
