News :: War and Militarism
Twenty-Thousand Sacrificed to the King
07 Jan 2007
Rise up.
History will record George W. Bush with the same love that is has recorded Caligula. He has presided over the erosion of an empire, spiked it with his corrosive disease, and consigned himself to the cesspool of history. Yet, within his own mind, there is an out. He believes that if he can just keep the flow of human blood surging for two more years, it will be someone else who, upon taking the reigns of power, ends the orgy of death. In flawed logic of Bush's cranial muck, the inheritor of Bush's war will be responsible for defeat. Bush will argue from that point onward that it was his successor that lost Iraq.

We must ask ourselves, "What kind of man would send tens of thousands more to their deaths just to place the mantel of inevitable defeat upon the shoulders of another?" The question answers itself. Only the kind of man who would attack his own country, murdering the three thousand innocent of September 11, for personal gain, would send twenty thousand more Americans to die in a war based on lies for the mere purpose of delaying the defeat. For a sociopath, of what significance are twenty thousand young lives compared to the glory of the sociopath? After all, in the mind set of our ruling class, these young lives are nothing more than cattle for the slaughter. Moreover, they can count on the majority of the lowly herds to honor the "sacrifice" and clothe it in words of patriotism and valor. Will you beam with pride when someone you love is butchered for Bush's glory?

What is patriotic about delaying the inevitable at the cost of innocent lives? What is patriotic about fighting a war based on lies and deceit? What is patriotic about sitting by as our rights are trampled upon, the truth is discarded, and the lives of our young are ended in human sacrifice to the rich boy who thinks himself God? More importantly, do honorable human beings sit back and do nothing while a mad-man destroys?

It has become clear that the democrats will not take real action to end this madness. The system itself is too corrupt to end the blood-letting. If anything is to change it will not be through the political process. The future relies upon your own actions. You can stand up to the state and its madness or you can be stomped on by the state and its madness. The choice is your own.
