The Real Terrorist Was Me… and The System That Wages War For Profit.

The Real Terrorist Was Me

I tried hard to be proud of my service but all I can feel is shame. You can not master the reality of the occupation… it’s the people… it’s the human beings I see. I’m overwhelmed by guilt every time I see an elderly man like the one that could’t walk and we brought by the stretcher and we called the Iraq’s Police to take him away. I feel guilt every time I see a mother with her children like the one who cried hysterically and screaming that we are worst than Saddam, as we forced her from her home. I feel guilt anytime I see a young girl, like the one I grabbed by the arm, and dragged into the street.

We were told we are fighting terrorists; the real terrorist was me and the real terrorism is in this occupation.

Racism within the military has long been an important tool to justify the destruction and occupation of another country. It’s long been used to justify the killing, subjugation and torture of another people. Racism is a vital weapon employed by this government. It’s a more important weapon than a rifle, a tank, a bomber or a battleship. It’s more destructive than an artillery shell or a bunker buster, or a Tom Hawk Missile. While all those weapons are created and owned by this government, they are harmless without people willing to use them.

Those who send us to war do not have to pull a trigger, or lob a mortal round. They don’t have to fight the war, they merely have to sell the war. They need a public who is willing to send their soldiers in the harms way. They need soldiers who are willing to kill and be killed without question. They can spend millions on a single bomb, but that bomb only becomes a weapon, when the ranks of the military are willing to follow orders to use it. They can send every last soldier anywhere on earth, but there’ll only be a war, as soldiers are willing to fight.

And the ruling class, the billionaires who profit from human suffering care only about expending their wealth controlling the world economy. Understand that their power lies only in their ability to convince us that war, oppression and exploitation is in our interest. They understand that their wealth is dependent on their ability to convince the working class to die to control the market of another country.

And, convincing us to kill and die is based on their ability to make us think that we are somehow superior.

Soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, have nothing to gain from this occupation. The vast majority of people living in the U.S. have nothing to gain from this occupation. In fact, not only do we have nothing to gain, but we suffer more because of it. We lose limbs, bear physical and mental trauma, and give our lives. Our families have to watch flag draped coffins rolling into the earth.

Millions in this country are without health care, jobs or access to education, and we watch over this government as they squander $450 million a day in this occupation. Poor and working people in this country are sent to kill poor and working people in other countries and make the rich richer.

We realize that we have more in common with the Iraq people than we have with billionaires that send us to war.

Our real enemies are not those living in a distant land whose names we don’t know or policies we don’t understand; The real enemy is a system that wages war when it’s profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when it’s profitable, the Insurance Companies who deny us Health care when it’s profitable, the Banks who take away our homes when it’s profitable.

When tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy… The loss of Liberty at home has been charged to the provisions against danger real or imagined from abroad…”

The enemy is not overseas, they are right here in front of us.
