Originally published in the Chronicle Telegram on 24 April 2004, this letter to the editor mentions how a British fifth column has succeeded in getting our military to supply the brawn to their Empire.
As an AWAC veteran of the early '80s, I am shocked that there remains the odd person who believes the line of buffalo pucky that our government cronies feed us concerning foreign affairs.
Iraqis I've met have suffered for over 40 years from U.S.-insalled dictatorship; they rightly don't trust us to put in their next government. Instead, they want true democracy where they choose their leaders, not us.
Like Vietnam, the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq are wars that should've never begun in countries we never should've entered. Thousands of victims are dead and tens of thousands are injured or maimed, without understanding why we Yanks are behaving like the British against whose Empire we once fought two wars.
And that's because the reasons for these wars were contrived by the Bush-Kerry Gang and their Demopublican information warfare teams, and beyond any logic but greed.
Right now U.S. soldiers from Ohio are forced by our government cronies to sacrifice their lives in Afghanistan, Iraq and Haiti to continue the 40-plus year Anglo-American subjugation of their peoples.
Americans and our global neighbors cannot afford four more years of American-powered British Empire.
