Abhorrent displays of human behavior often instills doubt that the world will change, that after all this war there will be some sort peace. With good reason, war will only breed more war.

”[…]for every innocent person you kill, you create 10 new enemies[…]”
-General Stanley A. McChrystal

The only hope that those who know what a better world really looks like have is faith in their influence. One persons actions effect a multitude of other people. So long as those knowledgeable of the truth act with a sense of duty, not to what would benefit themselves or others, but instead to uphold the duty of what is intrinsically right and wrong, change will come.

Man is slowly crawling away from his animal roots. I propose we recognize instinct and habit as the animal qualities they are, and those who can do this should strive to separate themselves from these attributes in an attempt to be apart of the human movement to improve human progress, continuing to make society a more civil and humane place to live.

Racial profiling; the list in America only gets bigger. Does it bother anyone that sixty times more people die on U.S. roads, during car accidents, than the number of people killed by terrorist attacks in the entire world? Or that we’ve spent a trillion dollars, thus far, fighting an enemy who is hardly of any real danger to us. Anti-inflammatory drugs(aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, etc.) are sold over the counter, and yet they account for more than 7,000 deaths a year, that’s ten times more than global terrorism. We have people in American still dealing with our financial crisis, losing their homes, starving to death, kids growing up with a poor education, unable to afford college, people living in fear because the poor condition of their neighborhood; However it’s more important to stop terrorism, than to allocate money to improve social settings and assure every American gets what they need to live a full, free, and happy life.

American intolerance threatens military goals in middle east, and puts American soldiers lives at risk, says General Petraeus. You mean when we defame the religion of the people we’re trying to help, they become enraged and turn against us, because there religion is sacred to them? It’s difficult to begin wrapping your mind around.

U.S. military platoon having some fun in the sun, taking advantage of all the perks involved with their authority,  killing civilians, covering it up, taking their body parts as awards, you know the things that all civilized nations do at war.
