makes me wonder - how is it possible for two countries who have so more in common that we do differences to see the same events with such different eyes?
We should be carefull not to isolate that large number of Americans who are against the war. They may be in the majority actually, its close. Remember, less than half voted for Bush.
Us and Them gets dangerous. Dividing people is their game, not ours.
What the anti-war side is against is the actions of the AMERICAN GOVERNMENT, which is really the actions of the corporate Elites who run government, bought and paid for. What was that quote ? - "War is the product of corporate greed"[Gerry McGuire]. Its sure is this time I think.
And sure, those individuals who shout about what a great job it is doing, those we know as the suckheads,
minions of mindless capitalism,
Conservative Christian Fundamentalist WhackJobs.
ya know, "them".
I guess that time is here, we have to draw that line, identify our enemy and stay our ground. They are in our midst too. On this forum. They play the role of the SS in a way, count on them to turn you in for speaking out against the government.
