Our presence in Afghanistan, Pakistan and the region of Central Asia is based entirely upon an agenda of gaining control over the vast, critical natural resources that are present there. Al Qaeda is the straw man by which all of these activities are being justified. Sure Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups must be dealt with, and can be, with appropriate covert military actions but to try to deal with that threat through the use of a massive military force is a completely outdated method. This is not World War II. It's time for our leaders in Washington to awaken to this reality and stop living in the past.

Believe it or not, a stronger anti-war movement is emerging in America. There are more and more writings and discussions about winding down the war on progressive websites, radio and cable TV. This movement seems to be growing, ignited and fueled by the rapidly escalating anger and despair felt by the millions of Americans who, while they watch hundreds of billions go up in the flames of war, are losing jobs, homes and have no where to turn. When that anger and despair reaches a boiling point, the march to war being conducted by Obama & Co. can be stopped in its tracks. Yes, it happened with the Vietnam debacle and it can happen again.

Capt. Obama of the USS Titanic is steering America directly into disaster, and when faced with the reality of the danger, he gives the command, "full speed ahead and damn the consequences." He has apparently become obsessed with the notion that he must be viewed as a strong militant leader who can keep the nation safe no matter how flawed and misdirected his intentions and methods are.

This self-proclaimed peace president has quickly evolved into the president of war, whose every action seems to be designed to take America further into wars that are crippling our nation and destroying its future. He must now do the honorable thing; he must return the Nobel Peace Prize so that it can be given to a world leader who truly personifies the intent of that award, not one who makes a mockery of it.
