We are already spending more money in Iraq than our grandchildren will pay in taxes and yet, still, there is talk of more war.
What started as a means of revenge against terrorists who flew planes into the Twin Towers has gone from a bad plan to a worse plan.
Not only are the terrorists still large and in charge, not only do we have issues of economic slow down and high prices here in the US... We are now talking about a military strike against Iran.
Now let me ask you, what has Iran ever done to us?
Sure they think differently than we do and they believe differently as well. Is this a crime? Not since the burning of witches in Salem has it been justifiable to wipe out other people for differences in beliefs.
What is it all about? Is it really weapons and fear of attack or is it a quest for oil and the power over the world that possession of crude oil brings to those who control it?
We're hearing the same song and watching the same dance of WMD.. those invisible weapons of mass destruction that were being played on the air before we tore Iraq apart and caused so much suffering in that nation and here in the US.
What are we doing? Do we think that by invading other countries with oil and controlling the oil fields we will be seen as the "power" in the world? Are we really wanting the rest of the world to see the USA as a nation which invades and blows other countries to hell and back, all for the sake of oil?
Sure Iran hates Israel. Israel hates them as well. Do we now have reason to bomb Israel right along with Iran, or are we going to take Israel's side and help them attack Iran? If we work together, who gets the oil?
Either way that still leaves the terrorists in Pakistan and Afghanistan to work their fear tactics while we are busy raining destruction down on someone else.
Oh, and where are we getting all the money for this war? We are borrowing it from other nations that not long ago we didn't like either. Now they are our money buddies.
I have an idea. Rather than spending our great grand children's social security why don't we use our war chest funds to create new fuel options. You know, "alternatives" to crude oil. Then we wouldn't need to battle for oil, we wouldn't need it any longer.
What type of technology could we have come up with this last seven years with all that money had we used it to discover and market new ways of energy?
The disease we are suffering from is fear and it's commutable. The air waves are full of the disease. Fear of high prices, fear of running out of money, out of oil, out of energy..
When we find the cure to fear, which is love; remember the Bible verse, perfect love casteth our fear, then we will think clearly again.
Rather than seeing our own citizens as possible threats to security and continuing to erode the Constitution;which has kept this nation great for over two hundred years, we will begin moving in the direction of clarity.
Our scientists will reveal all the wonders they have discovered for fuels and energy. When we invest in the research of a peaceful way of fueling our nation we then have a tool for peace rather than fear of weapons of mass destruction. How long can we continue killing each other for natural resources and survive?
Think for just a moment of the possibilities of having a clean, renewable energy source with which we can run our cars, heat and cool our homes, factories and hospitals. What a bargaining chip we would have to offer other nations. We offer you the technology to not be dependent on oil and in return we all lay down our weapons.
Nation after nation spends money on health care, education, research, housing and more technology that helps every person on our Mother Earth.
We have that option. We are faced with some serious choices. We can continue down this road of war, fear, terror, lack, or we can wake up from our self induced nightmare and turn our attention to really making positive changes not only in our nation, but in the world.
