If you support the idea of our government having to follow its own laws and constitution, then the next time someone tells you, "We're at war, blah, blah, blah....." be sure and remind them that we are NOT a nation at war, but a nation at large, criminally speaking; a nation at variance with our own laws and constitution. In other words, the U.S. military occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan are ILLEGAL as hell and have no basis in U.S. or int'l law whatsoever. In other words, the Bush Doctrine of pre-emptive strikes and subsequent military occupations is unlawful AND unconstitutional.
Instead of holding U.S. politicians accountable for unconstitutionally giving Bush faux authorization to use force against Iraq, Americans are supporting, funding and rewarding these professional criminals into a lifetime career of state-sponsored crime. Hillary publicly stated she didn't know Bush was going to use force against Iraq when she voted YES on Lieberman's war bill entitled, "Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002." btw, Hillary voted AGAINST the alternate amendment requiring Bush to send U.N. weapons inspectors into Iraq before using force.
No, we're not a war.......no Congressional Declaration was ever made. No proof of imminent threat of imminent attack was ever proven. We are a Nation Gone Wild, tossing our laws and constitution straight in the trashcan. Bush foreign policy is like a gangster ridin' dirty, driving around with no drivers license, no license plate, but full of gas, guns and dope.
Ex-President Bush warned the world that anyone attacking Israel will be attacked by the U.S. military. President Obama has been indoctrinated into this same unlawful, unconstitutional position by the same pro-Israelis and pro-Israeli interest groups that brought us the lies and false information used to go to war in Iraq. President Obama has refused to take the nuclear option off the table in dealing with Iran.
All these special interest group agendas could be derailed by strict adherence to U.S. law and constitution on the part of elected government officials.
Our government is NOT at war - our government is at variance with our nation's laws, constitution and Will of the People.
