Everyone dying in state sponsored terrorism we call "war", such as witnessed in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and beyond is a direct result of US military killing machine. Do you even know why we're fighting in Afghanistan? Toeing the party lne will yield one answer only, we are fighting Al Qaeda, a catch-all phrase for freedom fighters in every country we are presently invading. i can honestly say I am ashamed of our government leaders, our military leaders, our troops, our so called civic leaders, the callous police force who continually brutalize our populace. If you think this is untrue, I suggest you begin to do some reading, investigating, and some serious research beyond the fox news network, or every other controlled media source now owned by less than a handful of mega-corporations. It is time to wake up, time to raise your voice in unison with all planetary citizens and shake off the disease that is the current ruling elite and get back to natural law, respect for human rights, and set humanity on a collision course with love, altruism, cooperation, integrity, truth, transparency, and respect.

Actually, the "rate of crime and violence" nationwide has dropped a lot in the last decade. The US is now 28th in the world in terms of crime per 100,000 population. If local crime is up, there are lots of proven approaches to stop it that do not involve military intervention. I'm a Vietnam vet and these exercises look a lot more like an incursion of a VC village than crime fighting.

IT IS ILLEGAL FOR MILITARY TO OPERATE DOMESTICALLY NDAA IS TREASON OATHKEEPERS.ORG , DO NOT TRAIN TO CONFISACTE GUNS, OR ROUND UPS. STOP THE INTERMENT SPECAILISTS FOR DOMESTIC POLITICAL DISSIDENT CAMPS AND FORCED LABOR CAMPS. The Posse Comitatus Act is the United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385, original at 20 Stat. 152) that was passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction and was updated in 1981. Its intent (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) was to limit the powers of Federal government in using federal military personnel to enforce the State laws.

Good Post Jaris, its great to see how many people that have posted here actually get what is going on, and are not being fooled anymore.. I can answer your one question as to why we are still in Afghanistan, the USA corporation is there to protect there Opium, nothing more nothing less.. And did you know Al Qaeda is the name our CIA gave to a database they developed in cataloging the revolutionaries they used during the afghan war with Russia. Its not a terrorist group rather the name of a database. And this is how the USA corporation works they lie to your face, through there puppets in the media to sell you there lie.
