How To Stop Terrorist Attacks Here in America

 The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.  We keep on lighting candles, saying prayers and paying homage online to the innocent folks who keep getting killed by radicalized Muslims -a lot of them U.S. Citizens. This keeps happening over and over and over again and we keep voicing our horror and sadness and anger and lighting more candles.  Perhaps it's time we actually start asking ourselves what's making these people get so pissed off and outraged to the point where they think their only recourse is to blow themselves and a crowd of other innocent people up in protest. I'm tired of everyone just chalking these atrocities up to "terrorism" and deciding that the people who commit these crimes are just plain evil psychopaths with no legitimate reasons behind their actions.

For decades now, the big bad U.S. Government has inserted its mighty military into places and issues that we have no business being involved with. We've used our incredibly brave and dedicated men and women of the United States Armed Forces as pawns to carry out our Government's underhanded and dirty little wars that are always dressed up to look like another noble endeavor in preserving OUR freedom and way of life.  But if you look at the real facts behind why we did what we did (and exactly what we did) in Iraq and Afghanistan, you'll find far less noble pretenses. THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of INNOCENT people in Iraq and Afghanistan have been killed by the United States military. THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of people have lost their homes, their families, their cities, their entire way of life because of the U.S. A lot of these people were already weary and ragged from years of wars within their own country and religion and then the U.S. comes along and dumps more shit on them and makes their lives and their futures even more difficult and uncertain.

It’s all fine and good to hate, despise, and blame the people who perpetrate these senseless attacks on innocent people here on American soil, but let's not stop the blame train with them... let's keep it going to our Government and our military leaders who have wreaked havoc on the Muslim people and countries and then left them all in shambles. They’re also responsible for THOUSANDS of dead brave men and women in the U.S. military who serve without hesitation and without question. All those brave souls didn’t have to die and thousands more of their fellow soldiers didn’t have to lose body parts and their sanity in wars that had absolutely nothing to do with protecting our freedom. What those wars did do is piss off a whole bunch of already-pissed-off people and gave them a nice big target on which to take out decades of frustration and anger.  So while you’re lighting candles and sending prayers to the families of those brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice, maybe think about cleaning house in Washington and help get all these war-mongering, money-grubbing fucktards out of office and get in some true American patriots who can get this country back on its feet and get our military out of places it doesn’t belong. That’s the ONLY way we’re going to make any positive strides in reducing these terrorist attacks (home-grown and otherwise) on our own soil.
