    From one American to the troops, I am sorry that we consistantly disregard your lives and personel safety for wars intended to further increase the wealth of the oligarchy. I am sorry that so many of you have died not for freedom or the spreading of democracy, but for lies and mistruths. I am sorry that apathy and complacency has so permiated our society that most people are not interested in anything more then what the propaganda tube broadcasts. I am sorry that your feelings of patriotism and nationhood when you enlisted have been raped by the desires of corporate power. I am sorry that our government has created such hatred and disdain throughout the world that your risk is increased tenfold. I am sorry that I to was duped and originally supported the Iraq war. I am sorry that our nation consistantly violated international treaties designed to keep all soldiers safe if captured by the enemy, which in turn makes you not safe in that situation. I am sorry that our country is ran by such a pitiful group of lowlifes that they see a soldier only a tool for revenue, and not a instrument of freedom and hope.

    One day we will take control of our government once agian, and we will never put a soldier in harms way unless there is a clear and present threat to the United States. One day we will make it up to all the dead soldiers who died for the ideals of America, that the last couple of generations has tossed into the toilet. One day we as Americans will learn to not only stand up for ourselves, but for the ideals that once made America great. One day we will reject military conflict by executive order. One day we will require congress to debate the validity of a war before allowing the government to commit soldiers to it.

    The words 'thank you' are just two words. In my opinion those words are hollow and empty. They make as much sense as spending 1.98 on a magnet to put on a car. No you guys watch your back there, and we will watch your back here. The few of us left that actually care that daily you guys are dodging bullets and watching roadsides for bombs, we support you. We want you to come home.
