Aren't you outraged?

Our war in Iraq has increased the hatred that terrorists have towards us. It's provided training opportunities for terrorists. The terrorist threat is now greater than before 9/11. We are in a quagmire and there is no end in sight. Our troops will continue to die. And why? Why are we there?

The Administration lied. They fixed the intelligence to support their intention to invade and occupy Iraq. It's part of their grand scheme to maintain our dominance as the world's only superpower.

Rebuiding America's Defenses on page 63 of the PDF file, which is page 51 of the document, we find the following text:

"Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor."

And what is this transformation? The paragraph on the end of the previous page reads:

"A transformation strategy that solely pursued capabilities for projecting force from the United States, for example, and sacrificed forward basing and presence,would be at odds with larger American policy goals..." [emphasis mine]

This is a primary motivation for the invasion of Iraq. They wish to establish a military presence in the middle east. The basic gist of this document, Rebuiding America's Defenses, is that we need a bigger, badder military in more places. That's the transformation they want. But as they state, it's going to take time without some catastrophic event. This is because the public didn't want to spend more money on the military. Since they couldn't sell their idea in a democratic fashion, they had to hijack our emotional response to the tragedy of 9/11, the "new Pearl Harbor" with lies.


"The effects of this military transformation will have profound implications for how wars are fought, what kinds of weapons will dominate the battlefield and, inevitably, which nations enjoy military preeminence." [p 62 (pdf) p 50 (document)] [emphasis mine]

That's what they want to do, "enjoy military preeminence." That's why we invaded and now occupy Iraq. It's part of their grand scheme to build new weapons and establish more bases.

Even if their vision was right, and their plan would work, I could never support it. To further their goal, they have murdered uncounted thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands of Iraqi citizens. Not because they were a threat, but because they want more money spent on military projects and a greater military presence in the world. By attacking Iraq as our enemy, they not only get money to build more weapons, they get to try them out. And now we have troops with actual battle experience instead of just war games training.

Their vision is wrong, and their plan is not working. We're gearing up to attack an enemy who stands and fights. Our enemies don't stand and fight, they melt into the background like the Iraqi troops did when we entered Bhagdad. The threat we must address is from small, secret cells of hatred driven fanatics. Killing the children of their friends increases their hatred of us. It has increased their support, which increases the likelyhood of them acquiring WMD's. Missle defense systems do not protect us from them. They won't attack us with missles.

Lies and murder, and we're less safe. Where is your outrage?

Here's the link

I wonder where they'll get the troops from. The youth don't seem so eager to join. Of course if there's no jobs, and no financial aid, they might not have a choice. The problem with a draft is the rich kids get embarrassed when it's later found out they didn't have to go.
