Time to wake up

The United States is part of a corporate terror network that has killed millions of people based on fabricated lies to gain access to resources; unless you are one of the gullible few who still think Iraq was about freedom.

We are terrorists just as much as anyone we call a terrorist. They bomb buildings and subways and kill children; we bomb schools and weddings and kill children with remote-controlled drones. Tell me what the difference is.

You can’t, because there is no difference. You can make excuses all day long as to why they are the bad guys and we are the good guys, but look at the body count. We’ve killed hundreds of thousands of civilians in the past 13 years and sacrificed our constitutional liberty. For what? Do you feel safer than you did after 9/11? All we have are more terrorists fueled by the propaganda of our own neverending warmongering.

To see this in a light you might understand, consider the little children in Pakistan who welcome a cloudy day because the drones don’t fly when there’s cloud cover. We’ve actually succeeded in making foreign children fear a sunny day. If that isn’t terrorism, I don’t know what is.

Wake up, America. Look at what ignorant hate has turned you into. Don’t fear others; cower at the image you see in the mirror.
