Why the Missile Shield In Poland Is Wrong

The U.S. wants to build a missile shield in Poland,
basically in the back yard of Russia. The reason given
is for the well-being of millions. However, if truth be
known, Poland would run like heck to get away from
being the pawn of the world-empire ambitions of an
administration that is losing ground in their own
country. The people of the U.S. are not behind the
ideals of the White House. They can see further
evidence daily of the world domination views of
the President and especially the Vice President.

Take this scenario and turn it around. If Russia
desired to be the savior of Europe and the Middle
East and decided to place a missile shield in the
state of Texas, the outcry would be like the shot
heard ’round the world. It is plain and simply asking
innocent people to allow a government to use their
people, their land, and their safety for an agenda
that is political and selfish. When push comes to
shove, the U.S. will look the other way and the nations
involved will have to battle it out themselves. Peace,
while not perfect, exists in these areas, and to add the
tension of this missile shield is playing with fire for both
sides. While Poland claims it is economic, thir government
should understand there is not enough money in the world
to repay the deaths and destruction that such action could
evoke in their land. The families that would take the brunt
of any retaliation or would be caught in the middle of a world-
wide power struggle will do the suffering and the money –
well, it could go the way of being useless because of
nuclear attack, money will be an unnecessary evil. Take
Iraq as an example. Money by the billions is poured into
the war in Iraq, but the people, the everyday man, woman,
and child can’t buy what they need because of the devas-
tation by bombs and weaponry. They can’t go out and
enjoy what money can buy because this day may be their
last day, depending on what occurs. So money, while very
appealing and desirable is limited in what it can do when
war in waged, and death and destruction are a reminder
of how fleeting monetary gain can be.

While the lives of the Polish people are not part of the
equation on either side, when money is factured in, what about
the peril to the rest of the world? While there may not be a cold
war per se, the U.S. continues to build and maintain more
powerful missles and bombs. Does anyone really believe
that the rest of the world is not or will not do the same, because
pre-emptive is already a pattern set into motion by the U.S.

If the people of the U.S. do not trust their administration
and their ideas that involve the sacrifice of human beings, while
they remain safe behind the facade of the walls of the White
House, does the rest of the world really think that they would
be treated otherwise? Arms are being built, research is being
conducted for stronger, bigger, and more destructive – and now
invading the land of Europe – well, if the people of America are
taking the slow trip to realizing the truth, Europe and the rest of
the world should be vigilant. The dollars made by any promises
from the Administration will burn in the fires of nuclear or land
wars, just as swiftly as they will be useless when the U.S.
dollar drops – and it will.

The world has been around long enough to realize that something
is not right here and that the ideas being tossed out into the world
leave a lot of unanswered questions and concerns that are met with
rhetoric and innuendos. Bottom line – the U.S. should stay out of
other countries – they are doing fine without the intervention and
it is the greed of the Almighty Dollar that sways and leads others
into the trap of being a part of what is unsavory, and false.

May the world think twice before acting or accepting “words.” Words
are cheap, money is fleeting, but the lives that are precious in any
land mean nothing to some governments. They do to the families
and the future of the up and coming generations.
