IMHO- The war on terror was a war started to make money, create ways to obtain power, and as a way to drive public opinion via the media.
I've been to this shit hole twice(Iraq). I could tell you a 100 different ways to speed up the pace for stopping "extremists" and "terrorists". But, no one in the public would want to hear my opinions because they're not "nice" or politically correct. (maybe even against the Geneva convention)
The ROE in this theater are to the point were I'm questioning if there not damn near in favor of the enemy. I wont post specifics due to OPSEC, but its ridiculous.
For the greedy, money and power hungry bankers that control the world, nothing on earth is more profitable than war. This war was created to be sustained, never won. A faceless enemy, with no flag, or "home", can easily be portrayed as anything you want it to be. For, whatever purpose you'd like it to be. Like driving the American sheep to believe whatever there told to believe.( i.e. force used by increasing threat levels, legislation thats for their “own good,” “epidemics") Fear is by far the most motivating emotion in the human psyche.
At least 4,262 U.S. soldiers have died in Iraq, and some reports have put the number of U.S. deaths in Afghanistan at 848. 5110 U.S. soldiers have died in the name of freedom. But also in the pursuit of deeper pockets for the ruling elite.

Of all times, right now we need to hold our flag high. Stay proud America, and God bless us all.
