    This is great, you always have wonderful music choices! What is the re-occurring song that you play before some commercial breaks? It was in your recent show about Lance Armstrong. Thanks!

      The killing of innocent people cannot be justified under any law. The US military or our Corps only look at things from their own perspective, and that will continue wars since wars are financially and otherwise beneficial to both groups.

      The killing of people in those 10,000 miles away and underdeveloped lands mean a different thing to them compared to what an American may perceive and believe. In a rational society like ours, things are calculated and that is how we make decisions. In those societies, it is their pride and fighting those that killed one of them to the end. And they believe they go to Heavens whether they succeed in getting revenge or they die in the process.

      Bush/Cheney went to wars based their hate and making money in the process. America needs a more rational approach to get out and make real peace with the world. With our intellectual, financial, and military superiority we can make peace. We can utilize Germany, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and many others not known for their wars and hate.
