If Occupy Wall Street is a movement expected to grow, how come the list of grievances hasn't been updated to adapt to the even larger version of the movement in later months?
Obviously many individuals in OWS and throughout other cities have protested the wars but OWS should include more mention of corporatism's role in the wars through politicians and self interests in an updated version of grievances. Maybe include sources to back each item as well so those who oppose can't spin it.
The wars kill hundred's of thousands of innocent people. Just look at the air strikes and the UN sanctions put on Iraq in the 90's. We're seeing a lot of that still. These drone strikes often kill groups of innocent people. The civilian death toll in Iraq and Afghanistan is very high. The number of dead US soldiers is very high. All of this is unacceptable especially when you know the war in Iraq was all based on a lie and when you know the purpose of being in Afghanistan is being abused.
But what can be done? It's going to be 4 more years of Bush's War on Terror with Obama 2012 and Romney 2012. Next stop indefinite Afghanistan war. Apparently with all the new technology and advances over the years, wars have become impossible to actually win and leave.
