To reflect on these truths and the cognitive dissonance that may result is no easy matter considering the indoctrination we received beginning with our first recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Now unfortunately those words ring hollow. Something that began over 50 years ago opposing our governments war in Vietnam.

If many/most in this country choose to remain in denial or oblivious allowing our government to continue to commit its sinister activities with impunity all over the world without our holding them accountable I believe we in America are in for a rude awakening, maybe even a hard fall.

Justifiably, people polled in the rest of the world see the US as the greatest threat to world peace. Not Americans though. They see the Russians as the main threat to America. More Kool-aid anyone?
