The Burning Bush

terrorism. The U.S rightly attacked Afghanistan when they refused to give up Bin Laden. For this, I have to trust thatrepparttar Americans knew what they were doing, since they were involved with setting up Bin Laden and Afghanistan inrepparttar 125905 first place. That does not, however, give themrepparttar 125906 right to biterepparttar 125907 hand that feeds them. It is what happens hereafter that should give us all pause for concern. Many times, causes or wars are pure in their infancy, but grow into new animals. This did not take long, as America turned towards Saddam and started accusing him of aiding and harboring terrorists. The U.S had not even put a serious effort into destroyingrepparttar 125908 Al-Quaida before turning to face a new enemy. Once they created, twice. Saddam was put into pwer byrepparttar 125909 United States, and backed for decades byrepparttar 125910 US. They were always aware (and some believe partially responsible) ofrepparttar 125911 crimes they now have charged him with. In essence, King George outright fabricated a reason to go into Iraq and finishrepparttar 125912 job his father started. Why? Simple. America did not see God afterrepparttar 125913 Gulf War. Oil companies cried foul when they could not broker deals with Iraq and profit from their huge oil reserves. Sincerepparttar 125914 U.S would already be inrepparttar 125915 middle east, why not kill two brids with one stone? In searching for weapons of mass destruction,repparttar 125916 Americans used weapons of mass destruction to slaughter any Iraquis who got in their way. How couldrepparttar 125917 people let this happen? People are influenced byrepparttar 125918 media, who in turn are influenced by profit. The Americans provided first-hand coverage ofrepparttar 125919 war as long asrepparttar 125920 media respected certain conditions aboutrepparttar 125921 reports they aired. Among those conditions were that no negative press towardsrepparttar 125922 events can be presented by those reporters. Bothrepparttar 125923 American and British governments worked together to create a climate of fierce propaganda. To opposerepparttar 125924 war against Iraq was to spit onrepparttar 125925 faces of all those who died in 9/11. To turn againstrepparttar 125926 soldiers today, would be to repeat that same evil againstrepparttar 125927 veterans of vietnam. The media imposed a subtle form of censorship towards any anti-war stories in order to keep good standing inrepparttar 125928 eyes forrepparttar 125929 American and British governments. Most people rely on mainstream coverage to get all their information. The many mainstream are owed byrepparttar 125930 few ofrepparttar 125931 upper class. Businessmen that stand to lose since Bush would refuse any contracts to be given to any country (and companies) that did not participate inrepparttar 125932 war.

U.S. vs Militias and Gangs

The United States is a large modern country with devolving inner cities. There are more than 200 million guns inrepparttar possession of Americans. Most violent acts inrepparttar 125904 States arerepparttar 125905 result of robberies, domestic disputes and drug-related violence. Terrorist acts, ranging fromrepparttar 125906 killing of abortionist doctors torepparttar 125907 bombing ofrepparttar 125908 World Trade Center, are highly publicized but not considered a real threat to travelers. The threat of robbery or violent crime in inner cities and some tourist areas is real and should be taken seriously. Travel in America is considered safe, and danger is confined to random violence and inner cities. Those seeking adventure can find it in a New Orleans bar at five inrepparttar 125909 morning or strolling through South Central L.A. after midnight.

Land ofrepparttar 125910 free and home ofrepparttar 125911 brave. And you had better be brave here, because people are free to do pretty much anything they like. Behind white picket fences and two-car garages, husbands clobber their wives silly while their kids make crack deals overrepparttar 125912 phone watching Scarface onrepparttar 125913 tube. A land whererepparttar 125914 license plates of one state reads: "Live Free or Die." Nice choice.

And dying we are!

In Littleton, Colorado, a couple of pimply-faced kids too squirrely to join their high school football team, and armed like a Navy SEAL team, whack 12 of their fellow students and a teacher before doing a sword-swallowing act with their assault rifles and chowing on a lead lunch. And that was a copycat killing.

In Chicago, a World Church ofrepparttar 125915 Creator white-supremacist fruitcake goes on a two-state ethnic duck-shoot that leaves two dead and nine wounded before also using a .32-caliber hand gun on himself. The victims' crime? They'd look a little out of place in a Greenwich, Connecticut, Starbucks.

In Wyoming, a kid is beaten in a pickup and his corpse then propped up on a roadside property stake like a bludgeoned scarecrow-because he's gay.

In Texas, another guy is dragged behind a pickup until his limbs peel off his torso like drumsticks on a well-broiled turkey-because he's a black dude.

In Los Angeles, a couple of guys who watched DeNiro and Kilmer in Heat too much, robbed a bank armed torepparttar 125916 teeth and in full body armor, turningrepparttar 125917 streets of North Hollywood into a battlefield. Hollywood producers scramble on their Star Tacs to cut their deals for World's Scariest whatever deals asrepparttar 125918 bad boys walk around calmly, jacked up and spraying bullets. The cops were so outgunned they raid a gun shop for an arsenal usually reserved for beach landings. Was there a message? Hell Yeah! Great ratings on Fox.

This is a land where doctors kiss their wives good-bye and later lose their lives outside burning abortion clinics in Massachusetts, Virginia, Florida, Oregon, Ohio, Minnesota and California-the victims of preachers, former altar boys, and women who look more like manicurists than terrorists. Other docs doingrepparttar 125919 dishes in their suburban homes are assassinated with deer rifles.

In Idaho, Montana, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Texas and Utah,repparttar 125920 pride of white America, stash a decade's worth of Spam and freeze-dried food intorepparttar 125921 hills, practice with paint guns and plotrepparttar 125922 demise of everybody fromrepparttar 125923 IRS torepparttar 125924 FBI. In this land of equality and free speech,repparttar 125925 JDL and Nation of Islam do their part to keeprepparttar 125926 hate at a scalding pitch.

In L.A., inner-city toddlers catch stray bullets from drive-by shooters, while, in New York, Islamic whackos use a rented van full of fertilizer makings to blow uprepparttar 125927 World Trade Center. In San Diego, a despondent plumber hotwires a tank, flattens some cars, and is shot to death after high-centering on a freeway divider. Rival rapsters in New York and L.A. gun down each other in a war ofrepparttar 125928 coasts.

What would Ozzie and Harriet Nelson say?

In Miami, a renowned fashion designer out to fetch his morning paper-whose only crime is penning groin-high hemlines-is blown away by a young, bar-hopping trendie from West L.A. who looks disturbingly like another young, bar-hopping trendie from West L.A.-only that one is allegedly hacked up by a famous football and movie star.

Local police are now hiring ex-SEALs to teach them how to take down entire schools instead of trailers. Things are heating up. What's that miss? Your kitten's uprepparttar 125929 tree? Boom!

A recent Gallup poll discovered that 40 percent ofrepparttar 125930 American people think that "the federal government has become so large and powerful that it poses an immediate threat to rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens." Delta Force at Waco. Black helicopters over urban cities. New World Order? Naw just your tax dollars hard at work doing something.
