"Young will die for our sins. He will die for a war that should never have been fought. He will die for the lies of politicians. He will die for war profiteers. He will die for the careers of generals. He will die for a cheerleader press. He will die for a complacent public that made war possible. He bore all this upon his body. He was crucified. And there are hundreds of thousands of other crucified bodies like his in Baghdad and Kandahar and Peshawar and Walter Reed medical center. Mangled bodies and corpses, broken dreams, unending grief, betrayal, corporate profit, these are the true products of war. Tomas Young is the face of war they do not want you to see."

Excellent post Trevor. Just the right portion of appetizer to wet our appetites for the main course link.

I feel sorry for Tomas, I dont feel bad Tomas. Why did he at one point think that violence would be okay? Why did he volunteer to aid in violent activity?

Nationalism based on lies of corporate politicians and an all to eager corporate media system happy to push the rhetoric.

There hasn't been a war that wasn't about creating more wealth for the rich pricks. Wise up. people. They aren't asking their own children to go make more money for them.

Anyone who volunteered for the war in 2001 to 2003 was a fool.
