Wave the Flags
Here is a nice bit on flags and empires.
and here is a commentary by USA Today founder Al Neuharth,
on the best way to support the troops.
Bring them home.
Like Johnson said,
"If I have lost Walter Cronkite,
I have lost middle America."
USA Today is not Cronkite,
but its not exactly the Socialist Workers Party either.
And here is Tom Brokaw speaking the obvious,
it's about the oil.
When we plant our flags around the globe,
in the name of our most valued and hallowed principles,
as a smoke screen to hide the machinations of economic colonialism,
to enhance our economic well being and our strategic positioning,
at the expense of those we claim to help,
we invite the ridicule of our friends,
and we empower our enemies.
And the flag becomes a symbol of hypocrisy,
It becomes a symbol of dominance,
It becomes a symbol of hatred,
not good will.
And the whole earthfamily suffers.
When the hope of the nations,
becomes an empire of darkness and corruption,
it is time to wave the flags,
And time to embrace the earth.
