Tomorrow in Plattsburgh, Democracy for America is holding a rally and march that will start over at the Angell Center at Plattsburgh State. I will be over there speaking, and encourage people to come to the event and speak out against the war, and the injustices by the Bush administration. The war has now killed well over 30,000 civillians, along with 2,500 soldiers.
I am sick and tired of hearing about this war since I don't think we have any business in being there. Did Saddam have WMD's? Of course he didn't. Did we have an exit plan going into this conflict? Lord, no. Do we have any plans to get out of Iraq? Well, considering that Bush has said we will be there for many more years, I don't think so. When will this administration realize that with our actions, we have actually opened ourselves up even more to terrorist attacks? Other countries despise us right now because of our actions, and the fact we are trying to push our ideals on another country. Could it be possible that Iraqis don't want democracy? Could it also be possible that as always, we as a country seem to be pushing the massive superiority complex onto the rest of the world?
We need to pay attention to our own problems such as the health care crisis and rebuilding New Orleans and the southeast. For once, we need to put ourselves first.
