War and occupation haven’t improved anything

Occupation and war have not proved to create peace, goodwill or progress towards stability, cooperation and real democracy of the people. So why are we there? And the insanity of our military ventures is bankrupting our country, creating ill will around the globe and is counterproductive.

We need to stop this insanity … where we are all affected from the policies generated by fear and warmongering, resulting in the deaths and suffering of innocent civilians under these occupations for war is destructive and horrific for all in its wake. How many must die before we realize that we are not doing democracy a good name by using bombs and military might … not a convincing argument for people struggling to survive and take care of their families. We are bankrupting our country while the military complex is spinning out of control and making us less safe.
