    The Real Terrorist Was Me

    The Real Terrorist Was Me


    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

    TRANSCRIPT

    I tried hard to be proud of my service
    but all I can feel is shame
    The racism you can not master the reality of the occupation
    it's the people it's the human beings
    I seem I claim by guilt every time I see
    an elderly man like the one that couldn't walk
    and we brought by the stretcher and we called the Iraq's Police to take him away
    I feel guilt every time I see a mother with her children like the one who cried hysterically
    and screaming that we are worst than Saddam, as we forced her from her home.
    I feel guilt anytime I see a young girl, like the one I grabbed by the arm, and dragged into the street.
    We are told we are fighting terrorists;
    the real terrorist was me and the real terrorism is in this occupation.
    Racism within the military has long been an important tool
    to justify the destruction and occupation of another country.
    It's long been used to justify the killing, subjugation and torture of another people.
    Racism is a vital weapon employed by this government.
    It's a more important weapon than a rifle, a tank, a bomber or a battleship.
    It's more destructive than an artillery shell or a bunker buster, or a Tom Hawk Missile.
    While all those weapons are created and owned by this government,
    they are harmless without people willing to use them.
    Those who send us to war do not have to pull a trigger, or lab a mortal round.
    They don't have to fight the war, they merely have to sell the war.
    They need a public who is willing to send their soldiers in the harms way.
    They need soldiers who are willing to kill and be killed without question.
    They can spend millions on a single bomb, but that bomb only becomes a weapon,
    when the ranks of the military are willing to follow orders to use it.
    They can send every last soldier anywhere on earth,
    but there'll only be a war, as soldiers are willing to fight.
    And the ruling class, the billionaires who profit from human suffering
    care only about expending their wealth controlling the world economy.
    Understand that their power lies only in their ability
    to convince us that war, oppression and exploitation is in our interest.
    They understand that their wealth is dependent on their ability
    to convince the working class to die to control the market of another country.
    And, convincing us to kill and die is based on their ability
    to make us think that we are somehow superior.
    Soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen,
    have nothing to gain from this occupation.
    The vast majority of people living in the U.S. have nothing to gain from this occupation.
    In fact, not only do we have nothing to gain,
    but we suffer more because of it.
    We lose wings, and bear trauma and give our lives
    Our families have to watch flag draped coffins rolling into the earth.
    Millions in this country without health care, jobs or access to education,
    just watch over this government squander of a $ 450 million a day in this occupation.
    Poor and working people in this country are sent to kill poor and working people in other country and make the rich richer
    without racism we realize that we have more common with the Iraq people than we have with billionaires that send us to war
    We need to wake up and realize
    that our real enemy is not the ones living in a distant land
    the people whose names we don't know
    and cultures we don't understand
    The enemy is people we know very well and people we can identify
    The real enemy is a system that wages war when it's profitable
    the enemy is 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 five thousands miles away
    the are right here home
    but if we organize and fight with our sisters and brothers
    we can stop this war we can stop this government and we can create a better world
