Almost 12 years ago Saudi and Egyptian individuals boarded three planes. Using box cutters they managed to kill about 3,000 people from 82 countries.
In retaliation the US has spent trillions of dollars in attacking countries Afghanistan and Iraq.
The death toll, theirs and the US’s is unknown but far greater than the original.
The dying goes on. Children are being born mutilated in Iraq likely caused by the uranium depleted bullets.
Soldiers are thanked by a grateful nation.
Congress refused to pass a job bills to help returning veterans showing their gratitude.
The Veterans Administration takes months or years to give veterans the help they need upping the already high suicide rate for returning veterans showing their gratitude.
Americans are told that the terrorists hate the US freedoms, but the government took away Habeas Corpus from Americans in the Patriot Act and the NDAA.
Americans now have no freedom from government spying.
Americans stand to lose things like SS, Medicare etc., but defense continues to grow. The US military budget is the largest in the world and almost larger than the rest of the world combined. The second largest military budget is Australia, obviously a great danger to the US. Maybe they should put those tanks on planes to protect Americans from box cutters.
America continues to kill civilians in drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.
Here’s a list of US military interventions. http://www.wordnik.com/lists/countries-the-united-states-has-bombed-invaded
Maybe the US would be safer if they stopped terrorising others.
Maybe less mothers, sisters, brothers, children, fathers would not mourn the loss of their loved ones if the US worked as hard for peace as it does for death. Maybe the money not spent on killing others might be used to help its own citizens.
