Americans Are War Weary ... and the Neocons Don't Like It
by Chris Rossini
Economic Policy Journal
March 19, 2013
Neocon Bill Kristol, writes:
Are the American people war weary? Yes, to some degree. Could there be a worse prescription for American foreign policy than giving in to popular war weariness? No.
It must be frustrating to be a warmonger these days. So much effort has been made in creating worldwide U.S. hegemony. So much energy spent....so much engineering.
Lets make a checklist:
Is the American public, in general, living in a sheltered cocoon; unaware of the disgustingness of war? Check....After the Vietnam War loss, the warmongers decided that never again would the press be allowed to report what was going on for all to see. From then on, war would be something that goes on "over there".
Are Americans sufficiently occupied, and without the time to even worry about what goes on "over there"? Check...Taxes are everywhere, two incomes are needed, what isn't taxed is inflated away...The worker bees are sufficiently occupied.
When the worker bees come home, are they sufficiently entertained so as to not worry about what goes on "over there"? Check...If there's one thing Americans are swimming in, it's entertainment.
Do the warmongers have what Cicero called "the sinews of war...unlimited money"? Check...They have The Federal Reserve to supply whatever money is necessary.
Can the warmongers do whatever they want with their unlimited money, without public oversight? Check...the Pentagon may not be audited.
The circuses are taken care of, what about the bread? Check...America has the biggest Welfare State in the history of the world.
Even though Americans are sheltered from what goes on "over there," are they reminded to keep up their support? Check...war propaganda is everywhere (sporting events, television, cereal boxes, etc). They even let government agents touch their genitals at the airport.
With such a setup, that took so many years to perfect, what could possibly be going wrong?
Bill Kristol blames Obama:
Tomas Young, Dying Iraq War Veteran, Pens 'Last Letter' To Bush, Cheney On War's 10th Anniversary
The Huffington Post
By Nick Wing
Days after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, Tomas Young, then a 22-year-old from Kansas City, Mo., made a decision repeated by many other Americans around the country: He was going to enlist in the military in hopes of getting even with the enemies who had helped coordinate the deaths of nearly 3,000 men, women and children.
Less than three years later, Young's Army service placed him not in Afghanistan -- where then-President George W. Bush had told the nation the terrorist plot had originated -- but in Iraq. On April 4, 2004, just five days into his first tour, Young's convoy was attacked by insurgents. A bullet from an AK-47 severed his spine. Another struck his knee. Young would never walk again, and in fact, for the next nearly nine years, he would suffer a number of medical setbacks that allowed him to survive only with the help of extensive medical procedures and the care of his wife, Claudia.
The incident turned Young into one of the most vocal veteran critics of the Iraq War. He has, however, saved his most powerful criticism for what he claims will be his last. Young says he'll die soon, but not before writing a letter to Bush and former Vice President Cheney on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War.
From Young's letter, published on TruthDig:
I write this letter, my last letter, to you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney. I write not because I think you grasp the terrible human and moral consequences of your lies, manipulation and thirst for wealth and power. I write this letter because, before my own death, I want to make it clear that I, and hundreds of thousands of my fellow veterans, along with millions of my fellow citizens, along with hundreds of millions more in Iraq and the Middle East, know fully who you are and what you have done. You may evade justice but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, of plunder and, finally, of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Americans—my fellow veterans—whose future you stole.
Young goes on to attack the "cowardice" of Bush and Cheney for avoiding military service themselves, and to encourage them to "stand before the American public and the world, and in particular the Iraqi people, and beg for forgiveness."

Allen West Denies Indefinite Detention in NDAA: ‘You keep talking about something that’s not there’
March 21, 2013
Liberty Crier video
3-14-13 CPAC, This is the forth time I’m asking Allen West on the record how he feels about the NDAA. This video is the FORTH one showing how taking pictures and small talk is okay, but talking about serious issues is something many don’t feel comfortable talking about. Seems Anthony has went above and beyond trying to get a straight answer out of him concerning the most draconian legislation EVER.
