    ...broaden our view of this. Bush is just one man. Stupid yes. Stubborn yes.

    But...

    We are not stuck in the quagmire of The MeatGrinder because of one man. If only it were that simple.

    No, all of us are complicit in this.

    How's that you say?

    Well read my post: Military Keynesianism: What is that and why should I care?

    Then buy and read 'Nemisis' by Chalmers Johnson.

    Short form: We've got a lot to do to change how this nation's government goes about 'protecting' us.

    Starting with stringing up a few war profiteers from the nearest light pole.

    And then taking a long, hard look in the mirror.

      No average reasonable person in this country has a remote chance of knowing what's going on, they have to be exceptionally aggressive followers of current events and unusually skeptical.

      When we're at the point of accusing the masses of using government wrongly, occam's razor says it's a lot simpler therefore a better explanation that there is fundamental system design failure.

        ...using the government wrongly. It's a small cabal of war material manufacturers allied with the DOD and bought and paid for legislators who vote again and again for...

        New aircraft carriers...Osama chuckles at that.

        New nuclear submarines...

        Space weaponry...

        The V-22...never gonna be capable of controlled flight.

        You don't have to be a genius to know what's up. Just look at the numbers.

        Yeah, there's a lot of 'black' budget but that can change with one vote in Congress. It won't until people realize that we don't need to spend.

        500 billion dollars a year lining the pockets of Bush and Cheney's masters pockets.
