“WikiLeaks’ Most Terrifying Revelation: Just How Much Our Government Lies to Us
Wikileaks has shown that our government and military form a ‘vast lying machine’ that perpetrates mass murder in our name.
Do you believe that it is in Americans’ interest to allow a small group of U.S. leaders to unilaterally murder, maim, imprison and/or torture anyone they choose anywhere in the world, without the knowledge let alone oversight of their citizens or the international community? And, despite their proven record of failure to protect America — from Indochina to Iran to Iraq — do you believe they should be permitted to clandestinely expand their war-making without informed public debate? If so, you are betraying the principles upon which America was founded, endangering your nation, and displaying a distinctly “unamerican” subservience to unaccountable authority. But if you oppose autocratic power, you are called to support Wikileaks and others trying to limit U.S. Executive Branch mass murder abroad and failure to protect Americans at home.” Excerpted from AlterNet
And to think the government wants to prosecute You, if you lie to them. That is so evil. Our government has got to the point where it is totally corrupt and non-responsive to Americas many ills. Since 9-11 our leaders have managed to “lose or misplace” a minimum of a trillion bucks and be the primary cause of up to a million civilian deaths. We can guess that the trillion+ bucks that “disappeared” has been distributed to cronies of those in power in Washington and into the maws of the International banking system. From what I hear this “war” on terror we have been fighting in the last 7 0r 8 years has made more millionaires then all the wars that came before combined.
It has sucked money from our country alarmingly quickly. It has created a cadre of storm troopers and snoopers that infringe/stomp on our constitution on a daily basis. It has created government agencies that plot together to keep us under their thumbs and always guessing…what’s next. It has created the perfect war…the one that never goes away and is always sucking up more and more of Our resources. We will never have peace from this war and one of the main reasons is our Federales can whip up more attacks anytime they want…just kill a few innocent Muslim citizens and tell the crazy Muslims that we pee’d on their Koran.
We as a country have mortgaged our future and sold our soul, following dysfunctional presidents and politicians and a perverted foreign policy and we break into war whenever our presidents get their lies together. Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Lebanon, Somalia, Panama and Grenada, Iraq and Afghanistan, with offshoot smaller wars now in Somalia (yet again), Yemen, Mauritania and Mali comes to mind.
What I find kind of funny is that Christian fundamentalists practically to a man/woman approve of our war against the Muslims. God is a god of peace…until the Muslims get involved.
We Americans in particular and the world in general are the most manipulated humans that ever existed. We let our leaders get away with anything they want and cheer them on when we go to war…how patriotic and loyal we are to liars and manipulators. Sadly I think America has lost its high place, and it wasn’t the American people that caused it…it was our leaders…the ones getting rich on our blood.
