Bring All Our Troops Home Now

"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world." --Thomas Jefferson to A. L. C. Destutt de Tracy, 1820. FE 10:175
If you have read Day Of Deceit: The Truth About FDR and Pearl Harbor by Robert Stinnett you know the sickening lies told to the American people about that day.
Stinnett spent 16 years doing his research and fighting in the courts to obtain a plethora of shocking documents under the Freedom of Information Act their authenticity cannot be denied. This link to a .pdf file provides a few of the official documents, i.e., "It (official document) directs the Hawaiian U.S. Army commander, Lt. Gen. Walter Short, to follow an official U.S. government desire: 'The United States desires that Japan commit the first overt act.'"
Pearl Harbor was no surprise. "Day of infamy," indeed.
There were 2,403 Americans who died at Pearl Harbor. According to Stinnett, who backs up FDR, those 2,403 Americans were acceptable casualties in order to take America into war. Stinnett goes on to say (same page), "Had the facts uncovered in this book been known immediately after the war ended, and had Roosevelt explained his war strategies and tactics to the families who lost their sons at Pearl Harbor, how different American history might be viewed today."
I feel confident in saying that the families of those 2,403 Americans slaughtered at Pearl Harbor would not have been very understanding. I was further shocked by Stinnett's next comments (same page), "The truth that has been told here does not diminish FDR's magnificent contributions to the American people. His legacy should not be tarnished by the truth. As with all American presidents, Roosevelt must be viewed in the total context of his administration, not just Pearl Harbor." Quite frankly, I would be ashamed to say such a thing.
George W. Bush lied to the American people about why "we" had to hurry up, bomb the hell out of Iraq, then invade and occupy a non threatening country. We had no such right. He boldly lied in order to conduct an unconstitutional, obscene "war" in Iraq that has caused the deaths of thousands of American soldiers, killed an estimated one million innocent Iraqi's and made refugees out of about five million in Iraq.
Read the U.S. Constitution: Art. 1, Sec. 8, Clause 11: To declare war, grant letters of marque and reprisal, and make rules concerning captures on land and water;
There was never a declaration of war by the cowards of both parties in the Outlaw Congress for either Iraq or Afghanistan. The nebulous "war on terror" isn't about fighting a government in a foreign country that attacked U.S. soil. It's a marketing slogan with Al Qaeda as the boogie man. A "enemy" created by the the U.S. The real game has always been power, money and expanding American control over countries who cannot defend against our military.
