I ask you individual Americans to reconsider those moral and human bankruptcies around us, get together with others, resist, and takeover the public and media landscape until the benefactors of terror retreat and surrender.

Similar were the words of John Hayden in a recent newsletter in which he called for the strategy of sane and peace loving Americans to change the course of the nation in 2010-2011. Hayden asked to "share some specific thoughts about building the peace and justice movement from the bottom up."

He said, "Social movements always depend on leadership, a commitment by a single individual or small group to continue their work in the face of all odds. Then there's the question of a strategy for being effective. We always have to measure our capacity against the goals we set."

However, Hayden continued, "The bottom-up strategy which I propose is building the pressure of people power against the pillars of policy that prop up the Long War. The key pillars for the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan include, first, the pillar of public opinion; second, the pillar of budgetary support; and third, the pillar of our military resources. Other pillars include the mainstream media, religious institutions and, of course, the required stability of America's ally Kabul. In the end, it's about public opinion. We have to argue that the American people are not any safer for having fought these wars, and we cannot afford the cost in casualties and tax dollars."

In other words, it is about PEOPLE POWER AGAINST THE PILLARS OF POLICY. Like me, Hayden has long noted that bankrupting the USA, physically, morally, socially, judicially was the aim of his terrorist ideals.

American leadership has failed time and again to avoid making more enemies and to avoid breaking constitutional guarantees. For example, this past month, we learned that the "Obama administration has acknowledged it's continuing a Bush-era policy authorizing the killing of US citizens abroad. The confirmation came from Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair in congressional testimony last week. Blair said, "Being a US citizen will not spare an American from getting assassinated by military or intelligence operatives overseas if the individual is working with terrorists and planning to attack fellow Americans.'"
