What Endless War looks like

“I’m sure we can all agree that we must endure years more of civil liberties assaults, endless war, bulging military budgets, suffocating government secrecy, a sprawling surveillance regime, and the slaughter of countless more Muslim children in order to save ourselves from this existential Lone Wolf threat. And that’s to say nothing of the fact that endless war, drone attacks, occupying countries, and engineering regime change is precisely what causes and fuels these threats in the first place. Indeed, NYPD’s Police Commission Raymond Kelly claimed that “Pimentel’s talk did not ‘turn to action’ until recently” when he “clearly ‘jacked up his speed after the elimination’ of the Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed by an American drone strike in September.” In other words, what little Terrorism does exist is caused directly by our own actions — the very actions justified in the name of stopping Terrorism.”

Maybe the US Citizens should pay special attention to Mr.Greenwald. Seems one of the few sane voices coming from across the Atlantic lately. Him and Jon Stewart. Which says a lot…

By the way, i don’t have any specific knowledge or background info about Mr.Greenwald but as far as Presidential Candidates go, couldn’t he be the option for the sane broader middle-class citizen which doesn’t want to choose between the Koch-funded nutjobs of the religious far-right and the hypocritical utterly-incompetent and cynical messiah-complex “falcon” Obama?
