"One of the fondest expressions around is that
we can't be the world's policeman.
But guess who gets called
when somebody needs a cop."
General Colin Powell
(1937- ) US Army General, Secretary of State (2001-05)

Yes, well, sometimes people call their local mafia boss, too, when someone else is muscling in on their territory. War-mongers love to have a reason to go to war (besides their REAL reason -- money and power).

    So stop answering the phone.

    Stop answering the phone when they need a cop, stop answering when they need a donation as well.

    And this is the problem! So many people are blinded by the motivational "patriotic" rhetoric that they completely miss the fact that we are totally expendable. To all who think this sounds remarkable, pick up a rifle and go to the front lines or go back. When and if you die, your family is paid off. Expendable! Throw enough men and weapons and the problem will go away but at what cost!? Who do they call? Tell their asses, "No! and do it your damned self!" Our founding fathers warned us about meddling in foreign affairs and blowback. I am a veteran and have lost friends. I know the cost and I was decieved like so many others. I cheered as we did what we did but now I know, we were duped by some old guy with a mid life crisis who was the part of an organization seeking to take over the world; the CFR, and Mr. Rockefeller readily admits this in his Memiors. Give them their Babylon and it will get worse as your freedoms are removed more and more.
