    Are we so conditioned with a decade of war that we just take for granted that we are bombing Libya every day? In the 1980s and 1990s our entire media would have been focused on such a war, but now?

    Is this a dangerous sign?

    Kuros, what is truly sad is that almost half the public supports this war of aggression.

    This is America. We love war and imprisoning people and we hate freedom, tolerance, peace, and prosperity.

    This shit has been going on longer than a decade.

    This Nation has been at War for the last 70yrs. Most in America today can't remember a time when we weren't bombing & killing someone somewhere around the World. So Yes,most are now conditioned on War. And the U.S. MSM works for the Government. They only spew Government Talking Point propaganda now. Our current President is now bombing Six Nations without any explanations. You would think someone in the Media or our Congress would demand some explanations for all these Bombing Campaigns. But that's just not happening huh? We are a Warring Nation now. And i don't see that changing anytime soon. It's very sad.

    Since it's Obama's war - it's OK.
    Had it been Bush, Code Pink(o) would be out in full force today, as would Cindy Sheehan.

    Our President is bombing Six Nations with no explanations at all. Talk about a Dictatorship? Doesn't anyone care? Not enough do i guess.
