WikiLeaks Iraq War Logs: Every Death Mapped

I dont even know what to say. This makes me sick to my stomach. Every red dot on that map represents a living, breathing human now dead due to US involvement. Each of those people had family and friends just like you and me. I’m disgusted with the recent actions of the United States military and I have every legal right to be. There’s nothing Un-American about standing up for what you believe to be morally correct, especially when we’re talking about human lives. Imagine you grew up in Iraq or Afghanistan and these wars were waged on your home land. You would most likely have a very different opinion on the US involvement, considering the only reason the US invaded in the first place was to prevent the use of “weapons of mass destruction” which were never discovered. Strange Days. 

Evolution of the warrior. One percent of the daily cost on our two wars, could feed the world.

"Here’s what you can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defence each year, and instead spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, for ever, in peace."Bill Hicks

Richard Gage Explains 9/11 Truth On Fox 2 Detroit

Richard Gage, the architect at the forefront of the activist group Architects & Engineers For 9/11 Truth, is given some rare mainstream TV airtime, garnering an interview with Detroit’s FOX 2. Somewhat surprisingly, anchor Huel Perkins actually lets him talk at some length:

Bolivia grants nature same rights as humans

Khaled El-Masri is a German citizen, a father of six who the CIA kidnapped by mistake, then sent off to receive months of torture in Afghanistan. 

When they realized he was innocent, he was flown to Albania and dumped on a back road without so much as an apology. 

El-Masri’s futile efforts at receiving justice in the U.S. are well-known, but cables recently leaked by Wikileaks reveal that the U.S. also warned German authorities not to allow a local investigation into his kidnapping.
