You have shown wisdom, This is about Empire. George Bush has no intention of leaving office
wow. this is an amazing, heartbreaking graphic. Thanks.
I have a post at my blog from a Vietnam veteran that you might be interested in.
WATCH 60 MINUTES TONIGHT!The active duty military personnel who signed the 'Appeal for Redress' are being featured on 60 Minutes tonight at 7PM. One of those is a soldier whose website 'Soldiers Voices Forum' I've highlighted on deadissue recently. A bona fide 'Support the Troops' moment if there ever was one, I urge everyone to tune in and to also help spread the word by posting on your own websites, sending out emails, etc.Couldn't get the links to work, so for more info, check http://deadissue.comThis is a big moment, sure to be ignored by the mainstream press, so it's up to us to carry on the sound!
Hey! This graphic gives the wrong impression that the United States is an empire.The US isn't an empire. Empires have "Emperors" with cackling laughs and British accents, death rays, space ships and masked henchmen.So there.
I beg to differ. For an explanation of how the MIC Empire works, see:http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/features/2007/03/spyagency200703
No US troops in the Philipines? That is what that graphic leads one to believe.None in Mongolia?Really?I thought Mr. President went there recently partly to iron out some kind of exchange.
Bill,I am afraid you will have to write to the DOD, the source for the graphic. See lower left corner.
This map is incorrect. There are no US troops based in the Republic of Ireland. The RoI govt only permits landing rights. The Republic of Ireland is as friendly to the US as France is.
Thank you for your comments on my blog and your link to yours. It is crucial that people like you be heard as you know and so many of us are going by what we read. We feel it in our guts but we don't have that first hand experience you do. I am glad people like you are out there speaking of what they know
Where in China does the US have troops?!As for what Wha Wadna Fecht for Charlie said, if it weren't for the RofI and its airbase at Shannon, the US would have a hard time crossing the Atlantic to reach Iraq without all the air traffic everywhere else in Europe. For a neutral country, Ireland does a lot for the US.
Thank you for your comment. The US has considerable forces on the island of Taiwan.Your point about Ireland is well taken.
