This war in Iraq isn’t the end; it’s the beginning of wars to come all around the world at the whim of the neo-cons in the White House.
This is the Bush Doctrine come to life: war, war, and more war. War brought to you by the big corporate masters who run the show.
This isn’t just a war on Iraqis or Afghanis or even Arabs or Muslims. It is ultimately a war on us all. That’s because the billions and billions of dollars that are being spent on this war—the cost of tanks, rocketry, bullets, and yes, even salaries for the 125,000-plus troops—is money that will never be spent on education, on health care, on the reconstruction of crumbling public housing, or to train and place the millions of workers who have lost manufacturing jobs in the past three years alone.
The fight against the war is really to fight for your own interests, not the false interests of the defense industries, or the corporate media, or the White House. Down with the wars for empire!
