"The Real Terrorist Was Me"
Anti-War Speech By US War Veteran
Our real enemies are not those living in a distant land whose names or policies we don't understand; The real enemy is a system that wages war when it's profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when it's profitable, the Insurance Companies who deny us Health care when it's profitable, the Banks who take away our homes when it's profitable. Our enemies are not several hundred thousands away. They are right here in front of us

Michael Prysner, an Iraq war veteran and now peace activist, was a corporal in the US army that invaded Iraq in 2003. Today he is a leader of March Forward, an organization of American veterans from both the Iraq and Afghanistan conflict.
Michael Prysner stated: I saw that it was not for the liberation of the Iraqi people at all. I saw that it wasn’t to help the Iraqi people at all, and I saw that I was doing exactly the opposite, that I was just hurting the Iraqi people. Every day was a catastrophe for them and it was seeing day by day the things that were committed against them, the lives that they had to live under occupation, I realized that it was a complete sham that we were there to help them.

US wars and occupations are not for the benefit of the people of Iraq, Afghanistan or anywhere else. Every military assault the USA and its quisling sidekick armies (such as NATO, UK, Australia, etc.) do is for the benefit of the obscenely rich ruling class of war profiteers.
