Thanks Freya for the link to the excellent article by Tom Engelhardt.
“Violence abroad,” it said, “breeds violence at home.” say it all.

America shouldn't be a war machine at all. Violence doesn't give good results and could cause violence in return. What I see these day on televisionica is disgusting.

I´ve get sleepless nights and I can only shake my head and try not to think about it.

It's a terrifying prospect, though one we have to address. RESIST! Thanks for the post, Freya.

Time to put the war mongers on alert.

A bomb won't get me to work, a tomahawk missile can't move freight, machine guns wont deliver lead free water to my home, hand grenades wont help me cross the river, and missile launchers won't educate children or grow food. More of any of those won't help with any of those issues.

Sadly, this is not new news. See "The New American Militarism: How Americans Are Seduced by War," by Andrew Bacevich...and "Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power," by Rachel Maddow.
