Palestinians support several crews who have fired missiles on my town. We have
asked the Palestinian people to overthrow the murderous monsters who lead them
down the road to perdition. Instead, they dance in the streets every time they
kill a Jew.
Americans suffer a similar problem with the State of South Carolina. The State suffers the worst health care in the nation, but they elect scurrilous leaders who support the murderous health insurance companies. Support is too mild a word for the racist slurs and the wretched attacks that emanate from that state almost daily [secession indeed!]. Famous for hikes along the Appalachian Trail, the officials enjoy immunity from prosecution for sedition. The disastrous Civil War that followed the firing on Fort Sumpter has taught them nothing.
The US military is not to blame for the mistakes of the civilian leadership. They were the ones who chose to invade Afghanistan instead of South Carolina.
Consumers are workers who produce the goods and services they buy. After the corporations kept real wages flat for thirty years, consumption and housing markets fell exacerbated by widespread fraud in the financial, heath and manufacturing sectors. Unemployment soared.

The situation reminds me of Seattle in 1999. A great number of people came there to protest the actions of the world leaders assembled there. The government brought in so-called security forces and hired young toughs to initiate violence among the peaceful demonstrators. The rowdies stirred up the crowd. The security forces hauled innocents off to jail and the demonstrations fizzled out.
The Republicans have obstructed and delayed much needed legislation. Will they succeed to ruin the country?
