Threatening Our Freedoms

There is a lie that almost all Americans repeat like Chatty Cathy dolls and all politicians spout many times a year. It is this: Our soldiers are risking their lives overseas to protect our freedom. There is no way Viet Namese, the Afghans or the Iraqis are or ever were any threat to the security of the USA, much less her constitutional freedoms. American soldiers are fighting to plunder oil and mineral resources, not to defend their freedom. Americans know this dirty open secret, but they repeat the sacred lie as if it were a religious tenet.
