Talk about having lost our compass! In the depths of being broker than broke, we launch yet another (illegal) war. We have a thoroughly non-representative government (majority of Americans oppose this war according to a recent poll).
If there ever was a time to water the the tree of liberty, this is about as close as it gets. We need to re-energize ourselves and follow in the footsteps of our founders with a real revolution.
A million+ people converging on the capital and refusing to leave until the government is toppled, ala Egypt, is our only recourse at this point.
"Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won,whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory." --- Sun Tzu, The Art of War.
