I'm currently a USAF military surgeon in Germany taking care of blown up soldiers from Iraq/Afghanistan. Looking at the news from overseas disgust me about America and especially about OWS. Sad to see that America has reached this point. I am not for or against OWS. Just a neutral observer from overseas. I agree on some issues and diagree on others. I worked hard to achieve my fortunate success and serve America proudly. But over the past fews months, OWS is degenerating into a massive and rowdy bunch of hippie-like people pushing for the demise of American society by trying to stop its economic engine and honest hardworking people from getting to their jobs. Yes America is in rough times, but unity of the American people is what is needed not starting class warfare. OWS needs clearly defined political, economic and social objectives and needs to put forth answers to the problem not just complaints. You need to Occupy Washington DC/Congress. That is the source of the cancer! Are you afraid of your own government? Instead, blaming all rich people, some of whom may actually be working their ass of to be where they are in life? Maybe we should put all OWS in Europe and let them experience how pathetic socialism really is. Socialism can only be destined to failure once you experience the actual system by living in it. Better yet, how about China. I've been there too. Communism will lead to it's own destruction as well. The only true society is a democratic one with a free market economy. It's not the economy or the market that is the problem. It's the corrupt politicians in Washington DC. If OWS brings down the US economy which is a very dangerous direction that you are pushing towards, then us US military folks might as well come home so that we can fight the new American Civil War. We may or may not be with you...Is that what you want? Have you seen young soldiers blown up with no arms/legs/genitalia/perinuem/open abdomen and chest? Thousands of them? Fighting for what they believe is America's freedom, politically, economically and socially. Well I have. In fact every single day! Most of you are clueless about how lucky you are to live in America. Yet you are unknowingly trying to destroy it? We have politicians to do that. Don't accelerate the problem. Show some clarity of vision. Please separate the truth from mass hysteria so that we, the US military, do not have to wage a new theatre of operation on our own soil.
