I used to have a folder in our computer room labeled "Prewar". It was stuffed with hard copies of doom & gloom pieces written by everyone from message board denizens to MSM icons to celebrities and beyond, all published and accumulated prior to our liberation of Afghanistan. I came across it during the sandstorm operational pause during the invasion of Iraq, glanced through it, and sent it off to recycling. Looking back now, I wish I'd kept them for a few more years.
Here's a snippet from today's linked article:
I had done all the usual actions of attempting to speak up and effect change at home-calling and writing Senators/Congresspeople, attending teach-ins, spreading information. After watching the worldwide demonstrations on February 15, 2003 be brushed aside as a "focus group," I knew then that the minds of the American public had been misled by the corporate media who mindlessly supported the objectives of the Bush regime, and reporting the true effects of the invasion/occupation on the Iraqi people and US soldiers was what I needed to do.
Read the article. I've got no comments to add.
See you in a year.
