Do we want to be a nation of preemptive wars
by Linda Zoblotsky
 
Tell your representatives in Congress and mainstream press editors to Stop the War in Iran.
 
How can we spread freedom and democracy around the world when President George W. Bush was chosen by the Supreme Court and not the people.  During the Election of 2004, no international monitors were allowed in the States of Florida or Ohio.
 
With a "you're-either-with-us-or-against-us" message, and the action of preemptive war, most of the world is now against us.  We have lost the sympathy of the world, that we received after the 9-11 attacks.
 
The people of the world view Americans as the largest consumer of resources and the price that we pay for those resources is often supporting dictatorships, war and torture.

The people of the world watch this Bush administration threaten Iran and then we wonder as to how Bush and his regime will abuse the Super Power next, possibly using nuclear warheads to wipe out Iran's nuclear infrastructure. 
 
The U.S. will be running a "nuclear simulation" test in Mercury, Nevada at the Nuclear Test Site on June 2nd.
 
President George W. Bush ran as a "compassionate conservative".  Is running a nuclear simulation test in order to threaten Middle East countries the kind of America that we want to live in?  When we threaten to go to preemptive war in Iran, how are we different from Osama Bin Ladin and his constant video threats?
 
I believe there is a growing number of Americans who not only question to themselves, their circle of contacts and even write the mainstream press, not only why we are occupying the countries of Afghanistan and Iraq, but what is the real story of 9-11This is a country with the resources to develop Weapons in Space, The 100 billion dollar missile stopper in Alaska and the HAARP system in Alaska, designed to study and eventually control the weather against our enemies.  How is it that the U.S. has the resources to remove the Taliban and Saddam from power, but on 9-11, 4 airplanes from 2 airports were highjacked?

Ray McGovern and Cindy Sheehan are true patriots.  I believe when Ray McGovern questioned Secretary Rumsfeld, he was asking questions on behalf of most Americans, even those who support preemptive war.  True Patriots, Americans and Immigrants who come to America for a better life, in order to sustain this great country, must ask - what kind of a country and what kind of a people do we want to be?

After watching the government remove the sum of that which was The World Trade Center, before any investigation of the facts, and then determine that even though mainstream news shot video footage and photos of live people looking out of the broken windows and massive holes on 9-11 before the buildings collapsed, that the buildings were so hot from the jet fuel that they simply collapsed?  And again with footage available from mainstream news coverage, over and over, the buildings did not collapse at the point of the damage. The buildings collapsed from the top. The buildings pulverized from the top and the pieces of the building projected out the sides of the building from the top, not at the point of damage.

Americans and true patriots and immigrants coming to our country must applaud and thank God and the Universe for courageous people like Cindy Sheehan and Ray McGovern, doing the good work.

Americans must write to their representatives in Congress and their editors and ask why are we seeking  war with Iran, after President George W. Bush and his administration lied to us about the reason for attacking Iraq, a country that did not attack us.
