War Propaganda closer to the border

As I write this recovering from a prescription drug overdose, I am reminded of what happened after 9/11. Americans were told that the enemy was going to return if they did not support war against the new threat. Hell, after 9/11 Americans became more paranoid and demanded that the government

Plan of Action for Gaza

This is a short diary so I will make my point clear. I am planning to head to the Gaza Strip to see the damage first hand and help some people along the way. I want to get my own perspective on the situation in Israel and have a fresh
