Killing Our Troops Slowly
Killing Our Troops Slowly
By Michael O'McCarthy

read the full article here

"In virtually every appearance by any and every elected politician that speaks of the current war publicly calls out to “support for our troops” yet refuses to address that which is killing them? The war itself. And roused by these hucksters the pathetically deluded, self-injuring American public adorns their cars with “Support Our Troops” stickers while refusing to understand that they are in fact supporting our troops with lip service as their own government is killing them slowly.

"With more war in the planning as I write this, let me suggest that ruling power, especially the reactionary power of Bush-Cheney, will never relent unless it faces overthrow by democratic, yet undefeatable force. That time has come again. Or again, nothing will change except this time matters will worsen."


On Thursday, March 15, join Veterans, Military Families, and Active-Duty Military Members will lead a car caravan from the contingent to Walter Reed Hospital to protest the negelct and abuse of veterans by President Bush, Congress, and the Pentagon.
