  •  For starters, we can stop bombing people (4+ / 0-)

    Pakistan, for example, gets bombed by the US on a regular basis, despite its protests and remember this: the US is not at war with Pakistan. The US sends $$ to Pakistan.

    The US is also using drones to bomb people in Africa and Yemen. And yet, I know of no wars that the US has declared in those regions. Do you?

    Cheney/Bush/Obama's "war on terrorism" is war on an idea not a country or a people.

    Can anyone recall any country that has previously done this sort of thing?

    I'm talking about bombing at will whenever US bosses decide somebody needs to be bombed?

    I wish someone would count how many ordinary people are being turned into haters of US bombing, and then they will soon be labeled "terrorists," which means they too will be bombed for opposing US bombings.

    Is that Orwellian or Zinnian?
