Wars without a Chance are as Fruitless as Romance without Finance

The US Spends the Money, but Loses the Wars

Iraq has shut out the US oil firms from bidding on concessions. For $trillion the US got nothing. How much in bribes to the Congress would dissuade them to get out of the war business?
The peace activists are missing a good strategy. They should stop advertising it is immoral to kill. Instead, they should emphasize the high cost of murder.

Nobody Can Give Liberty, Freedom and Independence

Somebody wrote "once they are empowered with self determination to gain liberty, freedom and independence."
As human beings, the Palestinians under the UN Charter automatically are empowered with self determination. They have the right to exist. If they choose liberty, freedom and independence as a way of life, they have a right to do so. No one has the right to deny them this choice.
