DON'T GO UNLESS BUSH, CHENEY, WOLFOWITZ AND RUMSFELD SEND THEIR KIDS
Sept. 29, 2005
If George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz are so positive that people should sacrifice and give their lives to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan, then read this.
It is time for Americans and others to realize that no one should go to Iraq or Afghanistan unless Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitze send their children first; if their children go, then you may go if you wish, if they do not send their sons and daughters, then you should not to either. Better to follow the example of Muhammad Ali and other draft resisters of the past and of today by not going; better prison than going off to fight in an immoral massacre that
Bush calls a "war."
Check your conscience; wouldn't you rather be a conscientious objector or go to prison than to be a party to these immoral massacres in Iraq and Afghanistan, especially against people who have never attacked America or killed any Americans except in self-defense. Yes, some say Bin Laden was behind 9/11, but the Afghan people were not behind it; instead, they have been victims of American attacks, just as the Iraqi people were not involved in 9/11 yet have been victimized with bombings, destruction of their churches and mosques, rapes of their women, theft of their belongings and have to deal with the long term effects of disease brought on by polluted water, little electricity and Depleted Uranium (that has a half-life of destruction for over a million years!)
This America that Bush leads is not the America I grew up in, nor is it an America we can be proud of. We must take it back by saying a loud and definitive, "NO, I shall not go," to his illegal and immoral attacks on others. If not, then you are part of the sin that he is perpetrating and you are as guilty as he is, you will be known as part of the problem--not as one who stood for what was right. Also, those of you in the military volunteered to defend our country, not to go attack others because our president lied and wants to conquer others; he has broken your contract with the military. As commander-in-chief, he no longer can hold you to your contract, because he is not longer "defending" America, he is using our amed forces as "conquering forces"--and that is not, nor was it ever, part of your contract with the U.S. Military or the U.S. Government.
By the way, since Senators Kerry and Biden also support the "war" in Iraq; make sure they send their children before you go. Let's see how long they'll support this "war" if their children have to be put in danger of being maimed, poisoned or killed in Iraq.
You think about this, and I hope you make the right decision.
