Rep. Dennis Kucinich: We Are Losing Our Nation to Lies About the Necessity of War

Quote:
In a little more than a year the United States flew $12 billion in cash to Iraq, much of it in $100 bills, shrink wrapped and loaded onto pallets. Vanity Fair reported in 2004 that "at least $9 billion" of the cash had "gone missing, unaccounted for." $9 billion.

Today, we learned that suitcases of $3 billion in cash have openly moved through the Kabul airport.

One U.S. official quoted by the Wall Street Journal said, "A lot of this looks like our tax dollars being stolen." $3 billion. Consider this as the American people sweat out an extension of unemployment benefits.

Last week, the BBC reported that "the US military has been giving tens of millions of dollars to Afghan security firms who are funneling the money to warlords." Add to that a corrupt Afghan government underwritten by the lives of our troops.

And now reports indicate that Congress is preparing to attach $10 billion in state education funding to a $33 billion spending bill to keep the war going.

Back home millions of Americans are out of work, losing their homes, losing their savings, their pensions, and their retirement security. We are losing our nation to lies about the necessity of war.

Bring our troops home. End the war. Secure our economy.

The only thing I disagree with here is calling this war. These were invasions and occupations called wars to hide their criminality.

Yes, I agree. But I'm sure Dennis agrees with your assessment as well. For example, he is in favor of another 911 (independent) investigation. He is fully aware of the motive behind 911, and I think in my opinion anyway, he was merely using the word "war," as a word most people recognize, in regards to the illegal occupation in the Middle East, as we all know it was.

Unfortunately, Dennis will not be running for President in 2012. I imagine one reason may be, his "prayer for america" speech, back in 2005/2006. Ya see, it isn't a "prayer," unless the right wing's "military jesus," doesn't have a say so, in the direction that this nation should take, in regards to it's "world wide imperialism." :roll:

...unfortunately, this nation is not ready for a Dennis Kucinich, Mike Gravel and to some extent, a Ron Paul. :cry:
