Economy? People are still fighting and Dying! The matter is one of War or Peace.

Posted by Jesse on October 23, 2008

I know more than enough to be skeptical of the actions taken, or accepted as necessary, by our “leaders” that I feel like I can safely assume the worst.

Sure the economy is a big issue for people. Not so much because the vast majority of americans are concerned about the Nation being bankrupt, or because the US military spending adds up to more than all the nations combined, but because they themselves, individuals and families, are concerned about their own well-being first and foremost. As it should be.

But the fact remains that tensions are high and the consequences of this governments military actions are much greater. Our fearful leaders would have the populace believe that this nation will ever remain righteous in this fight, and that those, like me, who oppose these aggressive actions are not only unpatriotic but are unworthy of any voice in the national media. Because, as the “neocon death-squad” logic concedes, War is Peace, and Occupation is Liberation.

Only individuals have the power. Until enough people come together and make a stand, peace will continue to be out of reach and war waged in the people’s name. Unfortunately, this is how the system currently works, legal or illegal. People have to take responsibility for themselves and demand a change. It’s supposed to be a two-way street. Right now, it’s one way by decree, and that is unjust and tyrannical.

“The defense policy of the United States is based on a simple premise: The United States does not start fights. We will never be an aggressor. – Ronald Reagan” (Liar)

Iraq Veterans to testify in DC

Posted by Jesse on March 4, 2008

Patriot missiles: Iraq Veterans Against the War
After Vietnam, American veterans testified to the atrocities they witnessed. Now soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan are about to do the same

This month, for four days in Washington, DC, beginning on March 13, there will be a second Winter Soldier gathering – 37 years after the first. Organised by the protest group Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW), US veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan since the 9/11 attack on New York will testify about their experiences. They will present photographs and videos, recorded with mobile phones and digital cameras, to back up their allegations – of brutality, torture and murder.

The veterans are not against the military and seek not to indict it – instead they seek to shine a light on the bigger picture: that the Abu Ghraib prison regime and the Haditha massacre of innocent Iraqis are not isolated incidents perpetrated by “bad seeds” as the military suggests, but evidence of an endemic problem. They will say they were tasked to do terrible things and point the finger up the chain of command, which ignores, diminishes or covers up routine abuse and atrocities.

Some see it as their responsibility to speak out – like Jason Washburn, a US marine who did two tours in Afghanistan and one in Iraq; Logan Laituri, a US Army forward observer in Iraq; and Perry O’Brien, an army medic deployed to Afghanistan in 2003. They believe that, as veterans, they are the most credible sources of information. They say they were put in immoral and often illegal positions. They will speak about what they saw, and what they were asked to do.
