Never Ending War

“The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous." - George Orwell
Sound familiar? Well it should as the US has been conducting never ending war, beginning with Vietnam, since 1961. The number of wars won - Grenada & the first Iraq war, the rest, stalemates at best.

  • Over 370,000 people have died due to direct war violence, and at least 800,000 more indirectly
  • 200,000 civilians have been killed as a result of the fighting at the hands of all parties
          to the conflict
  • 10.1 million — the number of war refugees and displaced persons
  • The US federal price tag for the post-9/11 wars is about $5.6 trillion dollars
  • The US military is conducting counterterror activities in 76 countries
  • The wars have been accompanied by violations of human rights and civil liberties,
          in the US and abroad

  • The P&L of this folly, a total loss and we haven't even included the cost of Homeland Security, the loss of civil rights in this country, the ongoing immigration nightmare of Europe, caused by this insane initiative, or the 5.6 trillion spent that could have been used to rebuild our slowly crumbling nation. Words cannot describe just how America has been victimised by a bankrupt policy that is slowly killing our country one person at a time.
