13. I reason I knew we were wrong "before" the Iraq war started is ...

 

because of the emotional pride the nation was being buried in. Pride always comes before the downfall. "The Power of Pride" bumper sticker ...I always hated and marked whoever had one as being stupid and dangerous. Just like those that were quick to attach a flag to their vehicles. Those flags were warnings of danger to me ...their was another idiot driving. Besides the US pride there was the whole twisted idea that Saddam attacked us floating around. I was amazed to find out that so many really believed that. This is what happens when emotional blind pride takes over ...it's dangerous not just for america ....but all the 100's of thousands of innocent people who died and are still dying. Those people and children didn't attack us on 911. People need to wake up about what the US government, the MIC and the 1% are doing to us and everyone else in the world. We are being played!
