Our Greatest National Security Threat? Perpetual War:
https://www.commondreams.org/views/2016/08/12/our-greatest-national-security-threat-perpetual-war

(William Astore) The United States is now engaged in perpetual war with victory nowhere in sight.  Iraq is chaotic and scarred. So, too, is Libya. Syria barely exists. After 15 years, “progress” in Afghanistan has proven eminently reversible as efforts to rollback recent Taliban gainscontinue to falter. The Islamic State may be fracturing, but its various franchises are finding new and horrifying ways to replicate themselves and lash out. Having spent trillions of dollars on war with such sorry results, it’s a wonder that key figures in the U.S. military or officials in any other part of America’s colossal national security state and the military-industrial complex (“the Complex” for short) haven’t spoken out forcefully and critically about the disasters on their watch.

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Young Americans for Liberty,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"Look how many lies were told to beat the war drums to get this country to endorse going to the ridiculous, unconstitutional, nonsensical, unwinnable wars in the Middle East. And, now, they want to go to war with Russia? I say wer need a war with Washington D.C.!" - Ron Paul

What if the American People Finally Woke Up?

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Young Americans for Liberty,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

My Commentary: What if, though? Would we just make excuses for continued complacency, or would we finally fight for real justice and peace?
