    AMERICA SEEMS NOT TO CARE…..PERHAPS ALL AMERICANS SHOULD STAY HOME……STOP DRIVING SO AS NOT TO BE HARMED BY EXPLODING NAILS AND GARBAGE……

    LETS THEM STAY AT HOME AND REBUILD THEIR LIVES, HOMES AND FRIENDSHIPS…..PUT MONEY IN THE BANK…..SAVE THINGS THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPOSSIBLE IN A WAR MINDED SOCIETY AND A HATEFUL AND UNFRIENDLY ONE TO BOOT.

    WHAT ALL THIS STATES IS THAT AMERICA HAS SLAVES,,,,,,THEIR OWN CONSTITUENTS AND THEIR OWN CHILDREN…..BECAUSE EACH TIME YOU SEND SOMEONE IN TO DESTROY , MANGLE OR TAKEOVER SEEMS TO BE AT THE HEADS OF ‘JEWS’……

    AND, NOW AGAIN, IT IS AT THE BEHEST OF AMERICANS…….ONE UGLY NATION THAT SEEMS TO BE GROWING UGLIER.

    ONE YEAR AND A BIT TILL THE BLACK BUTTERFLY LEAVES AND PERHAPS THE PAGES OF HISTORY WILL NOT LOOK SO DARK AND HATEFUL AND OUR CHILDREN CAN LAUGH WITHOUT WONDERING IF THEY WILL HAVE TO GO TO WAR…..YEA FOR THIS.
