New Nation News Reference: American Involvement in Wars from the 1812 to the Present

George WashingtonGeorge Washington's Farewell Address
"Why, by interweaving our destiny with that of any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of European ambition, rivalship, interest, humor, or caprice? It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world..."


 US Eagle StampOur Glorios LeaderCongress Gives Commander Bush Blank Check
The Senate joined the House on Friday morning in voting solidly to give Bush II the authority to use the entire US military force against Iraq anytime he feels like it - anywhere in the world - with a preemptive blitz that may include nuclear, biological, chemical and other classified weapons of mass destruction. As the US has righteously declared itself exempt from war crimes, any collateral casualties will be deeply regretted. - (this was done to save face as Bush said he didn't need any damn Congressional Declaration of War as we are already in a Perpetual War Against Terrorism)

A Day of Infamy by William J. Thomson
"Today, October 11, 2002 – a date which will live in infamy – the Constitution of the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.
