Amerika the Dutiful.
Welcome our Dupeocracy. Or Dunceocracy. Where we believe in the pursuit of Lies, Britney and the pursuit of Crappiness.
According to a Pew Survey, the percentage of Americans who believe that the war is going well has risen in tandem with the perceived diminution of violence — from 30 percent in February to 48 percent in November.
Meanwhile, the truth is that more Americans were killed in Iraq in 2007 than in any other year since the beginning of the war. That's what the picture above indicates. Those colored shapes? Those are dead 20-year-olds. The black squares are increments of 500.
Like the Nazis, our government still does not allow us to see coffins coming home. And we rarely see the maimed. Or hear about the 400% rise in suicides among returning soldiers.
We are being duped. Propagandized. Manipulated.
Don't fall for it.
Believe the news as much as you believe a "Sunny-D" commercial. The "Global War on Terror" will not give you stronger bones and a whiter smile. It makes you a resident/a citizen of Fascist/Terrorist state.
