How many times have you heard people say, ‘look what your country has done for you,’ in an attempt to bring a stray back to the fold and re-join the guilt-ridden, denialist population of America?
The FACT the USA is the world’s leading civilian killing, TERRORIST nation not only seems to escape average Americans, but also the UN and the ICC. However, the global majority is acutely aware of the fact.
How much longer will the myth of American exceptionalism justify the most horrific crimes the USA commits daily; how many more innocents will be subjected to euphemistic death, TORTURE and indefinite detention without charge or trial -- it only hurts when it's you or yours behind the bars or blown to bits by some misguided CIA moron in Nevada playing computer games that kill real people?
America was lost when some goon made a fateful decision that an innocent child’s life was worth less than a barrel of oil – the soul of the Republic left that day and cannot return until the nation is restored according to the principles upon which it was founded.
America sees enemies all around but misses its greatest foe, one that will soon see the nation utterly ruined and destroyed, a global pariah. That foe is unrestrained avarice/greed or PROFIT at any cost!
Rest easy the pain will soon subside, sweet peace will prevail over the turmoil and corrosive guilt that eats away the mind, body and soul from the inside. It is all unravelling as I write; but do not trouble yourselves with hard unpleasant realities, Letterman is on TV.
America needs no external enemy.
