Shame on the USA

The occupation of Iraq brings shame upon the USA. Neither the invasion was, nor the occupation is, justified by national security prerogatives. Iraq did not pose a threat to the security of the USA prior to the invasion.

The government and military of the USA has been hi-jacked by the Bush Administration, which aspires to further the cause of global domination. I reject the idea of global domination. I want the USA to be a good neighbor. I don't want the USA to be a bully tyrant.

It's time for ordinary Americans to take notice and stand up and demand redress for these terrible grievances. This foolish and unjustified, unnecessary, immoral and illegal military action in Iraq is the wrong thing for the USA. It is a terrible waste of lives, and resources. Killing and spreading destruction and violence are not acceptable.

If the "war" is about energy security - well there are much better ways to insure energy security than to lay brutal and inane waste half way around the world to a nation and its people.
