Cost Of The War On Terrorism

A new report from Brown University has estimated that the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the counterinsurgency in Pakistan will end up costing 4 TRILLION dollars and leave around 225,000 dead civilians and soldiers. In addition over half a million disability claims have been filed with the VA.  It is estimated that over 8 million people have been displaced in the war-torn countries.  Full story

One also has to add to the cost of the wars; parts of our constitution, of which I think the largest loss is the right to privacy.  We have also lost our sense of dignity when we fly anywhere.  The sixth amendment–right to a speedy trial is going, as is Habeas corpus–the right to go before a judge and be heard and hear the charges against you.  We keep edging closer to a dictatorial government…it creeps in slowly so we don’t notice so much.  It’s kind of scary to lose so much.

Do you think we will have to give up wars because they cost to much?  One can only hope.

The Christian Right Wants What Muslims Want

What is the agenda of the Muslim extremists, other than killing infidels?  Well we know that they are anti-woman’s rights and anti-gay rights.  They will kill women who step out of line and kill any person exhibiting gay behavior.  Their countries are generally controlled by religion and have no separation of church and state.

Funny thing…the Christian Right has pretty much the same agenda.  Women are considered second class citizens by the church hierarchy of most Christian denominations.  All but a handful of Christian churches condemn the homosexuals to burn in hell forever…and several evil fundamentalist movements want us Americans to be ruled by Old Testament law, which essentially means no separation of church and state.

So it seems that the Christian right wants exactly what the Muslim extremists want…they both want to take over America and make us slaves to their religion.

Fundamentalist Religion of any kind is evil, and bad for our country’s future.  As civilized, thinking, and caring people we need to recognize the threat these evil people present to us and our country and do our best to dissuade them from what they are trying to do.  They need to be exposed for what they are…a deadly and real threat to civilization.

Muslims Want To Kill Americans Everywhere

Today in a videotaped eulogy for dead 🙂 al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden his deputy warned America that they face an international community of Muslims that seek to destroy it and its allies.

Full story can be found here:  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110608/ap_on_re_mi_ea/ml_al_qaida_message

Well so much for warm fuzzy feelings and normal relations with the Muslim community all over the world.  I’m just sitting here and thinking of how the greater Muslim community would react if there was a large group of American terrorists vowing to slaughter and maim all followers of Islam wherever they are found in the world.  They key to this scenario is that our government would round up any members of an American terrorist group, jail them, and throw away the key.

Muslims for some unknown reason cannot seem to do this to their own terrorist groups…I wonder why.
