ANOTHER reason or opportunity TO MOURN: MILLIONS OF PEACE-PROMOTERS ARE SIDELINED AS MILITARY PROMOTION ROLLS ALONG IN AMERICAN 2010-2011 (Leaving many Brain-Drained or Brain-Dead)

Part 2

By Kevin Anthony Stoda

This is the second part of a set of FEAST OF THE HOLY INNOCENTS remembrance articles (i.e. a show of support for the poor and innocent victims of mindless war-economics) and a protest roll-call

at,

by,

military families in the USA and abroad. Part of the narration of this second piece is derived from my older (2008) article, "SOME PARENTS OF VETERANS COMING HOME FROM IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN ARE HAVING TO GIVE UP RETIREMENT TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR BRAVE OFFSPRING".

American's need to begin to mourn and roue' their predicament.

Then they need to demand change.

In yesterday's piece, I focused on the fact that better education has its role in improving critical thinking and prioritizing in America--by demanding that American families and schools demand a greater debate of a system that is bankrupting us morally, physically, and financially.

Now, I want to reveal how the rush to keep up a military industrial complex and neo-liberal status quo of neo-colonialism is wasting the chance to implement long-term development and peace making strategies.

This waste of human capital has been reflected more-than-ever in 2010-2011 as run-amok homeland security goes after peacemakers left and right.
