Dear World, Americans Don't Want War in SyriaSubmitted by go213mph on Sun, 08/25/2013 - 18:27
Open letter to the citizens of the world about our war-mongering government.
Eric Blair | Activist Post
As the U.S. government fabricates its way into yet another aggressive war, this time in Syria, I understand why you might resent average Americans because we allow this war path to continue.
After Gaddafi's carcass was dragged through the streets of Libya, our Secretary of State told you with a demonic smirk "We came. We saw. He died." I get it, they make us look like bloodthirsty thugs.
You might think we all agree with endless wars and unlawful drone strikes. You might think we condone the indefinite detention or torture of other humans. You may think we approve of the global police state and spy grid paid for by our tax dollars. You may believe we support our government's hubris bravado to conquer the world. You may even hate us for it.
Despite what you're told on the two-way telescreen, we are not okay with what our government is doing. Our government has gone completely rogue. They don't represent us. We do not share its enthusiasm for blood. We're disgusted by it.
Like you, we just want a peaceful and fruitful life with the hope of a better future for our children. We want joy, peace, love, and the liberty to fulfill of our dreams. Obviously, our government doesn't represent these values because we are not in charge of our government. It's in charge of us.
