America's Wars: How Serial War Became the American Way of Life

Well said. As a veteran who is disabled, I once believed the lies, (This was years ago, but it is a never-ending pattern in American politics, and government.) and was naive to the reality staring me right in the face. I've changed over the last 30 years, and I question everything. It has been so sad over the 8 years in particular, because of my stance against these wars, that I, I have been looked at as unpatriotic, and a traitor. I live in Wyoming, so people of my ilk are frond upon, and a small minority. Lincoln once said, "To stand in silence when one should protest makes cowards out of men." So, I have dealt with many wilsonveteran's for years, and even my early letters to the editor in our local paper have come to fruition. I have become cynical about what our government does on many levels, and I believe we as a country need to question them more often, with greater intensity, and with more force. Americans need to be more open-minded, more educated and informed about our government, and stop listening to the meme produced by them, and repeated back to others as if they were a parrot.

Thanks for your post Austintatious.
