I have a fear, a deep seated fear. I love my country and despise those that have misled us. The other day I was watching, The Unit on T.V. Sure it’s fiction, but what if?
A member of the unit was taken to a ship in the middle of the ocean for interrogation and beaten . . . Those that died, were thrown into the ocean.
My fear is that our leaders are not following the guidelines and laws we’ve setup. They use American Contractors because they don’t have to follow the rules that our soldiers have to. And our leaders in Congressional Fact Finding brought the head of Blackwater in front of them and they thanked him for his service to the country . . .
I would like to tell them;
Honorable members of the United States Congress, we have paid this organization greatly for their services . . . Their sacrifices aren’t because they believe in this administrations policy or in the United States but because of greed.
Throughout history, mercenaries have been used to fight a country’s battles, why? Because they fight for whom ever pays them the most. And they’ve been called the dogs of war . . . Ever wonder why?
Dogs eat anything, they will do anything.
And our leaders do this under our watch . . . And today our President’s signature has been linked to a torture directive. We now know how high the prison torture command goes . . . Our soldiers went to prison following commands.
I fear this win at any cause attitude is going to be our demise. It is ruining our nation . . . Did you vote for this policy? I didn’t . . . I want my vote back. I want this to go away. I want to be proud again . . . I believe in the Constitution, the Geneva Convention and in a basic human goodness . . . I have to believe because the other way makes it too easy to push the button . . .
Sometimes I feel I’m all alone.
I get comments, all the time saying, stop bitching, saying what are you going to do? You’re not telling us anything, we don’t already know . . . No. I’m not.
What can any of us do? The Brave Few.
