Iraq Veterans Against the War Rise


Iraq veterans who are against perpetual wars deserve our support and respect.

In 2012, about 50 Iraq veterans angrily discarded their war medals. Last September, it was reported that

“Probably no Americans are more abidingly tired of war than those who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan.”[1]

One army sergeant, “who was about to be sent to Iraq for his second tour,” declared, “We’re getting maimed for bullshit.”[2]

If you think the sergeant is kidding, USA Today declared last January that “As two of the nation’s longest wars finally end, most Americans have concluded that neither achieved its goals.”[3]

In other words, the six-trillion dollar war was a total waste. Men, women and children  who ended up losing their precious lives were all pawns in the Zionist schemes. The only people who are still laughing right now are the Dreadful Few.

The sad part is that when those maimed are done fighting Zionist wars and come back home, they are largely discarded as non-humans:

“Nearly 50,000 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans were either homeless or in a federal program aimed at keeping them off the streets during 2013, almost triple the number in 2011…”[4]

Our American men and women deserve better. We certainly cannot continue on this Zionist path and expect to have a bright future as Americans. And the statistics about the wars are just intolerable. Read the the following statistics produced by Antiwar.com:

American Military Casualties in Iraq 
Date Total In Combat

American Deaths

Since war began (3/19/03): 4493 3528
Since “Mission Accomplished” (5/1/03) (the list) 4347 3424
Since Handover (6/29/04): 3627 2899
Since Obama Inauguration (1/20/09): 256 128
Since Operation New Dawn: 66 39
American Wounded Official Estimated
Total Wounded: 32021 Over 100000

This is just a small fraction of the facts. Time simply will not allow us to provide all the evidence showing that the Iraq war was a complete disaster.

Iraq veterans, then, have legitimate reasons to voice their righteous anger against the powers that be, and perhaps the following video clips provide an accurate picture of their small but significant voice:


Those Iraq veterans deserve our respect and support. Michael Blake, a former specialist who served in Iraq between 2003 and 2004 in the clip, delivered one of the most moving and passionate testimonies ever. Thank God for young men like him. Let us work harder this year to make sure that Americans are aware of what is happening to decent people in the Middle East.
