Barely three months after the pullout by U.S. troops, sectarian clashes between Sunni and Shia Muslims have begun to take a heavy toll across Iraq.

I'm afraid it's inevitable. From our own perspective, the question we face is: just how much is this going to come back to bite us in the years to come? I fear the answer may well be; rather a lot.

It is so unfortunate that the United States and it's allies who fought and died so hard seemed to make little difference. We try and try to liberate others and end up spending millions that could have been spent on our own problems only to have made no difference and to be hated in the end. And the world wonders every time their is another conflict or people seeking freedom from oppressors...Well, where is the United States and why don't they help? We feel our sons and daughters died fighting for them, and it ended up meaningless to Iraq. I don't mean to diminish their suffering as well; but it is their freedom, their government and their country. Perhaps the world should have a paid mercenary army for those seeking freedom to hire. I for one don't want my sons or daughters to fight on foreign soil again.

Thanks, Pamela!

> War is just a racket.

-- USMC Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler, two-time recipient of the Medal of Honor, in a 1933 speech (http://www.fas.org/man/smedley.htm). Follow the link, read the rest of the speech.

> It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear.

-- General Douglas MacArthur

. .

Our real leaders have tried again and again to warn us that the wars are based on lies, but we have not bothered to listen. We've been caught up in the American Dream.

. .

There is a criminal class that profits from war. They dominate our masked media and, along with foreign lobbyists, their lobbyists dominate our government. A few months ago, they successfully sold us a War Against Libya. As a result, Libya has been turned into a killing field. Now they want you to "Liberate" Syria, and after that, Iran.

The product of the war industry is death and destruction. But very few people are interested in buying death and destruction, so the industry repackages their product as "Freedom And Democracy!". If we would use our minds for a minute, we would realize that bombing people does not make them free: It makes them dead. But the system stampedes us into war, so that we have no time to think.

The government starts the war and then drags us into it by telling us that we have to "Support The Troops". The best way to "support the troops" is to bring them home and keep them home and expose the criminals who profit from war-making.

Expose the lies upon which the war is based -- the lies about Iran and the lies about Syria, for example. The people in these countries do not want to be hit by our bombs and missiles. None of these countries threaten us. We live in the biggest military empire in history. The only thing that threatens us is our own addiction to war and greed.

America: If you love it, DON'T leave it. Don't go around the world bombing and destroying other countries: Stay home and enjoy the land you claim to love!

Remember, before the bombing started in 2003 there was no sectarian strife and bombing. Are we sure who is currently doing the bombing. We are made to believ it is the sunni or shia. But consider that the Mssod and the CIA are quite handy with destabilization. Algaeda started out as a US proxy anyway. Also remember that Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Iran were all on the list of countries to be overturn by the Project for a noew American century.
