Over the past 17 years since 9/11/01, the title question has plagued the tens of thousands of committed groups of highly intelligent and thorough truth-seeking scientists, physicists, architects, engineers, pilots, ex-military officers, ex-intelligence agents, firefighters, demolition experts, psychologists, medical professionals, etc, etc who have absolute proof that the official Cheney/Bush White House story about what happened on 9/11/01 was a “Big Lie”, that was so easily perpetrated on a fearful, gullible and mainstream media-saturated public that was very willing to suspend their critical thinking skills and throw their trust onto authority figures that would tell them what they were supposed to believe, even if it was contrary to what they actually saw with their own eyes. Unfortunately, those pseudo-authority figures that have the power to dominate the media, also have a long history of being serial liars - and they have hidden ulterior motives and a willing mainstream media machine on which to perpetuate the lies.


Millions of clear-headed people all over the world have gradually begun to disbelieve the Big Lies about 9/11 and have started to pay attention to the evidence that disproves the lies, even though they are big ones. The truth has a way of getting out - albeit usually too slowly - and thus these truth-seekers have seen through the propaganda that launched and perpetuated the lies.  These clear-headed folks, with the unassailably truthful facts on their sides – all easily provable in a court of law - are naturally wondering what is going on with the perpetuation of the White House 9/11 Myths, and why has the truth been forbidden to be spoken of in average newspapers and media outlets like the ones in my home town?


Billions have seen the suffering, despair and slaughter of innocent Muslim women, children and old men that have been driven from their homes by US soldiers and their lethal high-tech weaponry.


Observers with open eyes and open hearts have seen the rape, pillage, plunder, deaths and decapitations (documented following US drone strikes and mortar attacks) of innocents, families, tribes, cultures, societies, religious sects and infrastructure, predictably provoking violent reprisals (including retaliatory beheadings) from justifiably angry victim-members of the invaded homeland who naturally desire revenge and retaliation against the homicidal “christian” invaders and occupiers that drew “first blood”.


<<<Qui Bono (Who Benefitted)?>>>


Many observers know the names of the military, economic, corporate and political entities that were the beneficiaries from the post-9/11 wars. Those wars lavishly enriched them all, but it was at the expense of the doomed, deceived and psychologically deadened boots on the ground that did the dirty work for the perpetrators, all of whom were safely back in America orchestrating the chaos.


Many of us know the names of the war-profiteering oil cartels, weapons manufacturers, gun runners, the rent-a-mercenary corporations and all the other multinational and American corporations that enjoyed huge stock market gains back then – not just from the wars but also from the rumors of war – again at the expense of the soldiers and the deceived and pseudo-patriotic citizens watching the exciting carnage on TV.


<<<The American Empire, the Pentagon, Full Spectrum Domination, “The New Pearl Harbor” and “Corporate Personhood”>>>


A few observers also saw the connections between the pro-corporate, proto-fascist think tanks of the past few decades that include this short list of easily recognizable NeoConservative groups: Heritage Foundation, American Enterprise Institute, American Conservative Union, Americans for Tax Reform, American Legislative Exchange Council, American Family Association, the Chamber of Commerce, Christian Coalition of America, Club for Growth, Eagle Forum, Family Research Council, National Taxpayers Union, the various pro-Israel lobby groups, among about 800 others. And, of course, neither the Republican Party nor the Democratic Party are innocents in the active participation in the post-9/11 war-mongering activities.


<<<Full Spectrum Domination for the US, Facilitated by a “New Pearl Harbor”>>>


The leaders of the think tanks represented by the above short list seem to be peopled largely by draft-dodging Chicken Hawk insiders from the Cheney/Bush administration - that are consistently pushing for American military and economic hegemony abroad. The type of hegemony in secretly called “Full Spectrum Domination”, which seems to be the operating principle that every Pentagon subsidiary endorses and which is pushed by every talking head retired general on Fox TV that has undeclared financial ties to the weapons industry that will automatically prosper in any perpetual war or “rumor of war” scenario.


Many of the Cheney-Bush insiders that gained tremendous political power after the stolen election in 2000 were members or had close connections to the nefarious Project for the New American Century – PNAC - that published in its manifesto "Creating Tomorrow's Dominant Force" exactly one year prior to 9/11/01. The following indicting sentence from their manifesto reveals its intent:"the process of transformation (i.e., achieving full spectrum planetary dominance by the US military), even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor".It doesn’t take a genius to decide what group should be at the top of the list when the international war crimes tribunal starts to subpoena people to testify.


Interested in knowing who are the folks from PNAC? Immediately below, Pilots for 911 Truth has provided us with a list of the operatives that deserve to have their day in court to clear their names. They will have some pretty tough explaining to do. Check out much more. Here is the short list:


Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, John Bolton, Scooter Libby, Richard Armitage, Richard Perle, Dov Zakheim, Gary Bauer, William Kristol, William Bennett, Norman Podhoretz, Jeanne Kirkpatrick, James Woolsey, Robert Bork’s daughter Ellen, Charles Krauthammer, Jeb Bush, Steve Forbes, Rudy Boschwitz and Vin Weber. No progressives were members of this NeoConservative think tank. (You can see the rest of the list of Republican members at:


Fair-minded readers will agree that it is extremely important that voting Americans be mindful that every future election will be targeted by the NeoConservative 9/11 planners (including the old members of the PNAC noted above) that continue to actively work to achieve and maintain not only foreign, but also domestic full spectrum domination in the White House, the Supreme Court, the Senate and the House of Representatives as well as in all the state legislatures.


Most of PNAC’s blind supporters (mostly GOP voters) happen to be pro-war, climate-change deniers, supporters of polluting corporations (that they probably own stock in) and are quite willing to risk the destruction of the planet if profits can be made – thus ignoring the suffering of the “non-believers” whom the radical religious right-wing truly believe will be “left behind” to suffer and burn after the “Rapture” lifts the true believers to heaven.


It doesn’t look good for democracy if punitive, compassionless politicians and their cunning psychopathic corporate paymasters are to gain total control in what is shaping up to be a rolling, coup d’etat that was dramatically facilitated by the 2016 election of the sociopathic, historically-illiterate Donald J. Trump. (Recall that sociopathic, non-human corporations were deemed by the Supreme Court to have the same rights and privileges of actual persons - but few of the responsibilities - in the Citizens United vs. the FEC ruling in 2010.


<<<9/11 Truth-seekers and Many Eye-Witnesses are Willing and Eager to Testify Before an International Criminal Court>>>


Many of the members of the 911 Truth-seeking groups listed in paragraph one above are articulate, highly intelligent, scientifically and historically astute, very professional, and are not totally unselfish in their concern over the future of America and the earth. They want a truly independent commission with subpoena power to get to the bottom of what really happened on 9/11/01.


A multitude of experts are ready to be subpoenaed and to testify about the science of controlled demolition, the impossibility of office fires or even jet plane impacts in bringing down massively steel-reinforced concrete skyscrapers and the impossibility of amateur Cessna pilots flying commercial jets, much less guiding them into buildings at high speed.


Hundreds of well-informed eye-witnesses are ready to testify about the multiple explosions that they heard both prior to the plane’s impacts into the two twin towers and also the multiple explosions just prior to the freefall collapse of each of the three skyscrapers, 1, 2 and 7 as the disintegrated into fine powder and fell directly into their footprints in less than 12 seconds.


Three thousand professional architects and engineers who know everything there is to know about the construction and demolition of high-rise, steel-reinforced skyscrapers maintain a comprehensive website. (Google it at www.ae911truth.orgfor everything one needs to know about what really happened on 9/11/01.) These professionals are willing to testify about the robust construction of the three over-engineered WTC towers that were each designed to withstand jet airliner impacts and office fires without falling down. These professionals will testify about the impossibility of the absurd official Cheney/Bush White House “pancake theory” and the fact that the ONLY WAY to bring down steel-reinforced skyscrapers is by controlled demolition by highly trained teams of demolition experts.


Professionals with various areas of expertise are ready to testify to the impossibility of a 100,000 pound aluminum commercial jet with a 124 foot wing-span and 44 foot high tail section disappearing into the Pentagon through a 16-foot diameter hole in its outer wall, leaving no debris on the unscathed lawn outside the wall. These professionals are especially eager to question the total disappearance of the two virtually indestructible titanium engines that left no holes and broke no windows in the Pentagon’s outer ring. And they will question why the 80+ video-cameras all around the Pentagon were confiscated immediately by the FBI and still have not been released to the public. The obvious conclusion: no 757 hit the Pentagon; therefore a remote-controlled military missile likely did the damage.


Experienced pilots and on-the-ground eyewitnesses are ready to testify about the impossibility of a commercial jet disappearing into a 15 foot-wide smoking slit at Shanksville, PA, with no plane parts, no debris, no luggage, no body parts, and no frantic search and rescue at the site, proving that no jet plane crash had occurred there, contrary to what was portrayed in the fictitious Hollywood movie, Flight 93. The Shanksville site now has a national monument that is obviously designed to perpetuate the Big Lie.


Scientists and communication experts are ready to testify to the fact that the cell phone calls from flight 93 were hoaxes, only partly because it was impossible to have made cell phone calls from a 2001 phone from a jet traveling 500 miles per hour at 30,000 feet.


Patriotic 9/11 truth-tellers – typically unfairly painted as being unpatriotic - have been marginalized as “conspiracy theorists” by truth-obscurers in order to discredit and demean them and their unwelcome message.


<<<Being ”Good Germans” Means Believing in the Validity of “My Country, Right or Wrong” Patriotism>>>


The ethically invalid belief in “my country, right or wrong” patriotism – a common American trait - was also fervently believed by most patriotic “Good Germans” during Hitler’s 12 year-long “Thousand-year Reich”. Not wanting to come face-to-face with unpleasant truths about the criminality of police state fascism, most Good Germans (essentially 100% “christians”), contrary to what Jesus would have wanted them to do, (i.e., resist tyranny, but by nonviolent means). Unfortunately, most Good German “christians” preferred to maintain their silence (and ignorance) about what the Nazis were doing in their name.


Most Good German christians did not want to know about the atrocities that their soldier sons were committing in the invaded and occupied territories during WWII, and they felt threatened by the whistle-blowers who were asking questions. Thus most Good Germans stayed in denial about the Jewish Holocaust and the death camps, despite the cattle car caravans that always came back empty of their human cargo. They stayed silent about the over-powering stench of burning flesh that was so prominent in the smoke that was coming out of the barbed-wire enclosed extermination camp stacks.


Those who questioned Hitler’s white supremacist henchmen about the “theories” of mass exterminations of “useless eaters” such as Jews, Slavs, homosexuals, foreigners, starving and physically-depleted slaves and assorted other minorities might have been labeled as “conspiracy theorists” if the Gestapo had ever thought of such a cunning concept.


<<<The CIA’s Invention of the “Conspiracy Theorist” Smear Campaign to Discredit Dissenters>>>

In his 2013 book, Conspiracy Theory in America, author Lance deHaven-Smith traced the term “conspiracy theory” back to a CIA propaganda campaign that was designed to discredit doubters of the Warren Commission’s fake search into who assassinated President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. The use of the pejorative term is obviously a tactic to shame and humiliate those who saw through the ulterior motives of the commission, and thus effectively censor out or even banish anyone who questions an official government account.

The Warren Commission, to its eternal shame, ignored the testimony of a multitude of eye witnesses to the crime that proved that there were shooters both behind and in front of Kennedy’s motorcade. Many witnesses, none of whom were called to testify, heard shots coming from the grassy knoll in front of the motorcade. Their testimony was unwanted and therefore ignored. The “Lone Gunman” account was preferred by the true orchestrators of the Kennedy assassination as being easier to explain and defend even though it was just another Big Lie that was designed to obfuscate the truth.


One of those 1963 eye-witnesses in Dallas, Texas was an emergency room physician that attended Kennedy’s dying body. He would have testified to the commission that there was a tiny entry wound in JFK’s throat as well as a large exit wound that blew off the back of his head (depositing a chunk of his brain on the trunk of the limousine - which Jackie Kennedy was filmed retrieving in the famous film of the assassination by Abraham Zapruder).


Anyone with discerning eyes who watched the film saw JFK’s head being thrown violently backwards from the head shot, thus proving that that shot had come from the front (as did the neck shot), thus disproving the single shooter theory and proving that the assassination of JFK was indeed a conspiracy (i.e., more than one entity plotting the evil deed).


Hence the CIA’s cunning ploy (frequently using the pejorative “conspiracy theorist” term) to discredit those who had taken on as their duty to question what was indeed another of the Big Lies that regularly come from political entities that want our trust and votes. Big Lies also come in advertising campaigns from corporations that want our trust and money; from government and military entities that want our taxes, trust and allegiance; and from the for-profit media entities that want our trust and purchases. All those entities were somehow involved in the crime - and the cover-up - of the events of 9/11/01.


Both the Warren Commission and the 9/11 Commission were, in effect, saying:


“Hey you American idiots, listen up. How many times do we have to tell you that this case is closed? We got our crazed lone gunmen; now just be obedient Good Americans and resume your brain-numbing shopping, entertainment, amusements, celebrity worship and vegetating on the couch cheering for your favorite professional football, baseball, hockey or basketball team.


“Just move on. There’s nothing to see here.”


<<<Just Move On; There’s Nothing To See Here>>>


Or they may try to reassure us a bit more diplomatically by saying “trust us when we say that those crimes were committed by anti-American lone gunmen like Lee Harvey Oswald, James Earl Ray, Sirhan Sirhan, Osama bin Laden or Adam Lanza (despite all the evidence to the contrary) – and those cases have been neatly wrapped up (by hook or by crook).”


“So just move on – there is nothing more to see here; but, should you continue to have doubts about our official stories, just be sure to remember what happens to conscientious whistleblowers like Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King, Paul Wellstone, Chelsey Manning, Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, etc when they go poking around where they’re not welcome.”


There have been many America military/government/corporate conspiratorial dirty tricks that were initially denied by the powers-that-be but which were later acknowledged after diligent, courageous, whistle-blowing, investigative journalists proved the conspiracies. In every case the powers-that-be had been calling the truth-seekers untrustworthy “conspiracy theorists”.


Such a list could mention hundreds of examples, including the following short list that occurred during recent American presidential administrations:

1) Of significant note was the proto-fascist, pro-corporate conspiracy to overthrow Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1934. The plot was conceived of and funded by Republican Party financial elites who hated FDR - and admired (and wished to replicate) Hitler’s “economic miracle” that had resulted in tremendous growth and profits for German corporations (as he was preparing for war in Germany’s rapidly developing armaments industries). The plot was foiled by two-time Congressional Medal of Honor winner US Marine Major General Smedley Butler, who had been secretly approached by the Wall Street titans of industry to lead the coup;

2) The Eisenhower-era’s U2 spy plane that was shot-down over the USSR;

3) The Kennedy-era’s Operation Northwoods (the US Joint Chiefs of Staff plot to start a war against Cuba by blowing up innocent US citizens and blaming it on Castro);

4) The Johnson-era’s Gulf of Tonkin false flag episode and the cover-up of the Israeli Air Force’s attack on the USS Liberty;

5) The My Lai Massacre cover-up;

6) The Nixon era FBI’s anti-leftist COINTELPRO;

7) The Watergate conspiracy;

8) The CIA’s MK Ultra mind control program;

9) The secret bombing of Cambodia;

10) Ronald Reagan’s lies about trickle-down economics and the illegal wars that devastated Central America;

11) The Iran-Contra scandal (selling weapons to Iran in exchange for US hostages);

12) George Bush the Elder’s encouraging Saddam Hussein to invade Kuwait;

13) The George Bush the Elder’s lies about the fictional Kuwaiti baby-killing encouraged Congress to start Gulf War I;

14) The CIA’s drug-running operations;

15) The Clinton-era’s secret negotiations that fast-tracked NAFTA, which encouraged corporations to ship manufacturing jobs overseas;

16) The George W. Bush (the Younger) and his Vice President Dick Cheney’s CIA Black -op Sites for purposes of torture;

17) GWB’s lying about Weapons of Mass Destruction and the illegal wiretapping of Americans;

18) The “collateral murder” of innocent Iraqis in Baghdad – (google ”collateral murder”);

19) The Bush and Obama-era’s use of – and denials about – the drone program to ambush and extra-judicially massacre terrorism “suspects”;

20) And, of course, the mother of all conspiracies (9/11) that has been lied about and denied by all living presidents, vice presidents and major political party leaders:

21) The proven facts that steel-reinforced skyscrapers cannot be brought down by jet planes or by office fires but were instead brought down by pre-planted, computer-controlled demolitions (thus exonerating of the crime the terminally-ill and disabled Osama bin Laden and the 19 falsely-accused Arab Muslims - six of whom were reliably reported to be alive and well and living in the Middle East shortly after 9/11/01).


And thus the immediate deaths of the 300 plus New York firefighters (and the lingering deaths of thousands more firefighters and assorted other rescue workers that were exposed to the multitude of toxic substances in the dust and the smoldering pile of rubble) and most of the 3,000 other victims occurred not because of plane impacts and fires but because of the pre-planted explosives and resultant incinerations, thus also proving that the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq were begun on the basis of a false flag operation.


So – back to the title question - why do so many average American citizens prefer to think that our government, our Congress, our President, our Vice President, our CIA, our FBI, our major media, etc would be telling the truth about the events that allowed thousands of pseudo-patriotic scoundrels to lead America into a series of military misadventures that have already cost both current and future American taxpayers several trillions of scarce dollars, not to mention the current perpetual war quagmire that has no visible end, as long as there are profits to be made from war.


<<<Why do Good Americans Today Sometimes act Like Their Counterparts in Germany in the 1930s and 40s?>>>


Admittedly, many American citizens have been effectively brain-washed and many have been too busy, too distracted, too exhausted, too patriotic, too TV-addicted and too mesmerized by entertainment or professional sports to have even bothered to look at the abundance of evidence that proves that 9/11 was at least allowed to happen and most likely perpetrated – and then covered-up - by assorted, well-known and previously well-respected, politically-involved Americans who now have a lot to hide and a lot to lose if the truth was ever allowed to be spoken. The Cheney/Bush insiders, the Project for the New American Century and the guilty members of US military/industrial/congressional complex have been actively covering their gullty backsides, professing innocence, since Day One.


One can assume that there are many Good American citizens who may be cognitively unable to separate truth from lies and have succumbed to the continuous barrage of Big Lie propaganda efforts that are rampant in the media (with no balancing information allowed that would expose the real truth). In other words, many good folks simply believe what they have been told. Without good information, one cannot see clearly.


Lack of interest, lack of time, lack of critical thinking skills, lack of resources, blindered patriotism, borderline intelligence or the inability to do the necessary internet searches, can be factors in accepting what others know are untruths - as can the inability to think clearly because of the use of addictive, brain-numbing, brain-altering psych drugs, illicit drugs or alcohol.


Many Good Americans only get their news and thus form their opinions from pseudo-patriotic, pro-corporate sources which operate under water-tight political agendas that prohibit the publication of any information exposing official secrets.


Even here in northeast Minnesota, the only print media outlet that has allowed discussions about 9/11 and other controversial issues is the courageous alternative newsweekly that publishes my weekly Duty to Warn columns, the Duluth Reader (Google


Over the past 17 years, the commercial daily papers and television/radio outlets in my area have consistently refused to print (or broadcast) commentary articles or even letters to the editor that offer alternative views that are considered dangerous by the “authorities” – and therefore they have been censored-out of the consciousness of their readers, viewers and listeners.


And that reality is also true of the rest of the nation. The vast majority of American newspapers and radio and television stations that report the news are politically very conservative, very pro-militarism, very patriotic and very pro-business; after all they rely on corporate sponsorship, governmental approval and so have to pull their punches when reporting the news.


It can be said that the reporting policies of my Duluth-area media outlets are not unlike the corporate-owned and corporate-controlled mainstream media outlets all over the world when it comes to running away from unwelcome, truthful points of view that seem “unpatriotic”, too progressive, anti-war or “anti-empire” or expose their sponsors of wrong-doing. Any information about taboo subjects, if it is printed at all, is muted and placed on the back pages with clever information that makes the serious accusations seem almost irrelevant. Censorship abounds.


<<<What Motivates a Media Outlet to Become Part of a Censorship Campaign Against Truth-seekers?>>>


One has to wonder: “what motivates a media outlet to willingly become part of a censorship campaign against the 30 – 40 % of Americans who know with certainty that what they report about 9/11 is just cunning propaganda?” The evidence that casts doubt on or disproves the official lies is so over-whelming that many clear-thinking foreigners, whose media aren’t consciously trying to hide the truth about 9/11, regard us Americans as being idiots or dupes when it comes to 9/11 issues.


One clue about what might be behind the press censorship concerning 9/11 truths was revealed in an outrageous rejection letter that a 9/11 truth-seeking friend of mine received years ago from the editorial editor of my daily newspaper after she had sent in a letter exposing some of the lies about 9/11. Her well-written piece had outlined a few of the many reasons why the official story about 9/11 could not possibly be true. Her letter was rejected out of hand. Here is the letter that she received from the editor:


To: ______ ___;
Subject: RE: Advice

You're probably going to find this offensive and maddening, and I'm sorry for that, but we've been quite reluctant to publish letters espousing conspiracy theories. Even if you got this down to 300 words, I doubt we'd publish it at this time. The claims you're making aren't unknown; entire books have been written about them. But they're also not widely accepted or proven.

My regrets and apologies,
_____ _________, Editorial Page Editor


This weak explanation came from a regional newspaper that has published a large number of provably false or very questionable opinion pieces and letters to the editor from, for example, deniers of climate change; people who claim that the planet is actually getting colder - in spite of all the evidence; believers in the Rapture theory; pro-war types proclaiming that America was winning the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; those who believe that our military is doing God’s work; and deniers of the documented tortures, rapes, murders and assorted other atrocities that the Pentagon has admitted to, apologized for and paid reparations for. And that is a short list.


<<<What if America’s Editors and Publishers had been in the Newspaper Business in Germany in the 1930s?>>>


One can’t help but wonder what would be the editorial stances of the owners, publishers and editors of our mainstream American newspapers if they had time-traveled back to the pro-war, pro-empire, racist, fascist, militarized, police state that was Germany 70 years ago. Would they have willingly printed Hitler’s “widely accepted” stories and letters to the editor that irrationally imprisoned and even condemned to death minorities like Jews, Slavs, Gypsies and homosexuals on the pseudoscience of genetic and racial superiority? Would they have printed letters discussing Nazi atrocities?


Would our “modern”, supposedly more enlightened newspapers have courageously accused Hitler, his fascist government and his loyal killing soldiers of conspiring to commit crimes against humanity? I think not. The costs of doing good investigative journalism in Hitler’s Germany would have been too high.


And the costs of doing good investigative journalism into what really happened on 9/11/01 has apparently been too high as well.


I suppose that not many of us would have had the courage to resist the tyrants who were in political power in 1930s Germany. And such continues to be the case 90 years later.


The questions above are entirely appropriate for those of us trying to survive in our racist, militarist and morally/financially bankrupt American Empire where 1) corrupt crony capitalism is unregulated and rampant; 2) where the media is under the control of amoral mega-corporations and their assorted sociopathic billionaire owners who really don’t give a damn about the survivability of the planet; 3) where poverty, economic inequality and oppression is crushing people everywhere; 4) where the punitive politics of the far right is trying to achieve total control of all branches of our government; and 5) where a militarized police state is obviously emerging.


The editorial page editor mentioned above is likely just parroting what his publisher had ordered him to say. The principle that only “widely accepted or proven” opinions are printed was, of course, patently untrue - or it was being applied very selectively. What is really frightening is the fact that the opinion pages of most of America’s mainstream media are adhering to a similar fear-based, blacklisting mentality that raised its ugly head during the paranoid, hard right-wing politics of the McCarthy era where American fascism thrived for a while.


But there is another agenda at work here in 21st century America, and it isn’t democracy in action.


<<<The Deniers of 9/11 Truth: Accepting the Big Lie>>>


The question posited by the title of this long article explores the dilemma faced by truth-seekers who have the facts that totally refute the Big Lies about 9/11/01.


These so-called “9/11 Truthers” or “conspiracy theorists” (pejorative terms designed to demean them) have been attempting to inform individuals and institutions that have chosen to remain ignorant about the overwhelmingly provable and documentable truths about the pre-planted controlled demolitions that pulverized into fine dust the three WTC towers on 9/11/01. These demolitions could not have been accomplished by anybody other than insiders.


It is obvious to many that 9/11/01 was a false flag event that has successfully destabilized the world and has started the series of perpetual US-led wars all around the world, wars that have destroyed and are continuing to destroy the lives of soldiers on all sides of the conflicts (and their families), unarmed innocent women and children, tribes, cultures, religions, economies (including our own) and the very planet we live on. And, it must be mentioned, our illegal, ill-advised and stupid military aggression has raised up billions of mortal enemies for Americans all around the world whose enmity and justified desire for revenge will never be appeased until “the Great Satan” is finally beaten.

The future of a livable America and a livable earth is in the balance, American leadership must change from its uber-militaristic past before it’s too late.
