Posted on Apr 6, 2009

State Secrets can be classified into two distinct categories. One category has to do with national security; the other, has to do with hiding the immoral methodologies in the name of national security.

Perhaps you are correct about war being “a jobs program for the militay,” but I say, as long as the Muslim countries think they can send their fighters to get “training” on American soil, I guess we have no option but to respond.

THE BUSINESS OF WAR!  If I had to rank titles of
articles on Truthdig this one would rank close to the
top. People are always searching for reasons why
people fight wars.  You don’t have to look far to
get an answer.  JUST FIGURE OUT WHO’S MAKING THE
BUCKS.  Commander-In-Chief Bush called himself a
Christian therefore I’m sure he must be familiar
with “THOSE WHO LIVE BY THE SWORD WILL PERISH BY
THE SWORD.”(MATTHEW 26:52)
