Today's Must Read, If You Care About Our Troops

Please be sure to read this opinion pieced by a well respected journalist, Richard Reeves.

It shines a very bright light on the absence of attention to the wars in Iraq and particularly Afghanistan. The author makes a startling statement that our troops are fight for each other, not the sick visions of Obama or Bush.

The elephant in the war room is "Occupation of a foreign country". Churchill said something like, "We shall fight them in the streets". That's what citizens of occupied countries do, always have, always will.

Why is that so hard to understand? Reeves points to what Americans did in 1776 under the threat of the British occupation.

The Neocon war mongers are actually war criminals, guilty of shedding the blood of our young volunteer military women and men. Why do they do it? Follow the money made by the military/industrial/Pentagon complex.
