So the moment I heard Bush speak about Iraq, I knew where it was going.
In many ways, it was as if I were watching a movie for the second time. The similarities were astounding -- there was the search for something that did not exist and then a changing of direction by trying to liberate a country no one had asked us to liberate. This situation in the US as in Argentina also included the questioning of patriotism of those who opposed the government's actions, and the role the media played in covering the truth--either by lack of investigation, fear, or choice. It was truly history repeating itself.
In the US, we have been walking a similar path of mass-discovery we have been awakened to "seeing" more clearly corporate power and greed. This willingness to see and act on what we see, has taken the form of the 99% movement.
