US soldiers are dying every day. 3700 dead and rising.
How has your life changed? Chances are, your life is really not much different than the day before the ill advised invasion of Iraq. That’s the way the administration, and the defense industry wants it. Screw drafts and tax increases, the way to wage war in the 21st century is to not interrupt the day to day lives of Americans with pesky sacrifices.
21st century battle involves completely insulating the public, so whether its wartime or peacetime, they shouldn’t be able to tell the difference. That way, its easy to con the public in to allowing the next voluntary war. Just keep the people scared, keep giving a blank check to defense conglomerates, and add the bill to the deficit.
God Bless America!
