Among other things, he's explaining how sanctions are an act of war.
My own personal belief is that Syria is on the war list ahead of Iran but that's my opinion.
I really can't believe that we can't breathe.
In 2006 and 2007, I was among those who took comfort in the fact that Bully Boy Bush left shortly.
I did not expect that America would finally find the most wonderful person to be president -- they hadn't prior -- but I thought we could breathe.
I thought all the killing and torture could be moved on from. Unlike David Swanson, I never thought that there would be any punishment for Bush & Co. The only way that would have happened is if Mike Gravel had won the nomination and the White House. (I supported Mike Gravel in the primaries. I also know him from 'back in the day.')
So I figured there would be a rush to put the Bush years firmly in the past. I wasn't thrilled about that, I believe in accountability; however, I could live with it.
Instead, I never get that day to relax and not live in fear that the country I live in, the government my taxes support, is about to declare war on yet more already suffering people, making their lives far worse.
