Here you go...this is what I think is a more accurate assesment of our
needless involvement in Yugoslavia. I never thought Clinton would be
more dangerous than Ronald Reagen but I was wrong....We now have a war
monger mad dog at the helm sending in the troops for the military
industrial complex....Blood for Money...This is what we and the rest of
the world get for electing the servants of the wealthy. Why do we
believe the U.S. govt. about Kosovo when we know they are lieing about
the Drug War and the need for prisons. They say that there are less
people on welfare but fail to report those same people are now homeless.
What makes us think a govt. without compassion for its own has only good
intentions for others in foreign lands.. Many of us think they are not
telling the truth about UFO's or the Kennedy assasination. Why believe
them at all. Doesn't it seem fishy to anyone else that the news
realeased info about China having multiple warheads and missle
technology days before a congressional vote on the National Misslle
Defense bill. The politicos and their rich handlers are robbing us of
our civil rights and killing the rest of the world for fun & profit We
sell death and call it security, but that security is for despots to
maintain there iron grip on the throats of those desperately seeking
Democracy....What kind of foreign policy is that....Just ask yourself
who profits from this....Profit is the motive and murder is the
crime....mike
