Total # of U.S Troops Killed in Iraq and Afghanistan Wars – 5,444

War is a racket.

It always has been.

It is possibly the oldest , easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious.

It is the only one international in scope.

It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what is seems to the majority of people.

Only a small “inside” group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many.

Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.

Are you concerned about the number of people who have died?

If you are - have you contacted your president, senators, or congressperson to

let them know that you are against the war?

What are you waiting for? - do it today!
