Why we Fight

The “Post-9/11 World” Is A Detriment To Humanity

  • We are fighting illegal preemptive wars against three countries. Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan. The resulting wars have caused well over 1,000,000 casualties. Preemptive war is illegal according to the Nuremberg Charter, and the United Nations charter. These wars are destabilizing the entire Middle East, and causing anti-American sentiment throughout the world.
  • In America, the Constitution is being forgotten with the passage of bills like the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, and the John Warner National Defense Authorization Act. Americans are forced to wonder if their conversations are being monitored through the use of illegal wiretapping. The freedom of the press, and the right to peacefully assemble is being discarded.
  • Executive Power within the United States is being expanded to the point of near-dictatorship, and accountability for the actions of the Executive, and other members of Government is non-existent.
  • A constant state of fear is the norm.
  • Billions upon billions are being spent on the previously mentioned wars, and things that are needed for the people are being forgotten about.

Why We Fight & Eisenhower's warning

The first link is a video. The second link is the text of the entire speech. It was Eisenhower's farewell
speech - Jan 17, 1961. In it, he speaks of the military industrial complex and how we must remain
vigilant against their influence. It is a remarkable warning from a man that clearly demonstrates
the character that I always expected of an American President. Sadly, his fears are being realized

For an excellent documentary on why we are fighting today and why we will continue to fight, watch the DVD "Why We Fight" directed by Eugene Jarecki.
