10 Years In The Middle East Is Far Too Long – AntiWar

October 7th 2011 will mark the 10 year anniversary of the war in the Middle East.  This 10 years of war, has gone on for far too long.

War has a heavy cost, a heavy cost that we don’t think about in our daily busy lives. That cost is your children or your grandchildren dying before their time, being severely injured or mentally scarred for life.

War is your brothers and sisters being taught to kill other people — and to hate people who are just like themselves and who don’t want to kill anyone either.

War is your children seeing their friends killed before their very eyes or seeing their limbs blown off their bodies.

 

 

 

 

War is genocide; it is hundreds of thousands of human beings dying years before their time.
War is millions of people separated forever from their loved ones.
War is the destruction of homes which people worked for.
War is the end of careers that meant as much to others as your career means to you.
You cannot put a cost on a human life, but the financial cost on war is now running into the trillions of dollars. As illustrated by Cost Of War Dot Com.
War is the imposition of heavy taxes on you, other Americans, and on people in other countries — taxes that remain long after the war is over.
War is the suppression of free speech and the jailing of people who criticize the government.
War is the imposition of slavery when young men and women serve in the military.
War is goading the public to hate foreign people and races.

It is time to end the war and bring the troops home.

If you like the majority of Americans want to end the bombing and occupation of the Middle East.

    You would think that after entire milennia of one war right after another, that people would have learned by now. The problem with nations is that they are able to maintain wars overseas because the core of the nation is not directly exposed to its horrors – all they see is the tax and debt. This leaves the politicians to spin it however they want. Anyway, war is a foolish and pointless endeavor, and has no place in a society that claims to be enlightened.

    Ten years IS far too long, thank you for putting this together, James, I love it. I’d also like to point out that the US involvement in the mid east is not limited to the last ten years, as I know the creator of this is well aware and I assume most of the viewers/readers here are also well aware. I have received a couple messages this morning from people who were deployed in the region before THIS war and want to be sure the strife and death before 2001 is not ignored.

    Catherine, it looks now as if we need them here to defend us against our own government, eh?
