    Throw Away Those Yellow Ribbons, Because Johnny Is Never Marching Home

    Published: Friday, July 18, 2003

    In spite of the fact that our brave fighting men have now assumed the unflattering role of Iraqi policemen, the word from The Pentagon is, "Our troops are not coming home anytime soon." That's the understatement of the year!

    The truth is, our troops are never coming home! The United States currently has military personnel in nearly 120 countries around the world, and President Bush is about to make it one more as he prepares to send troops to Liberia.

    The forces that fought the war against Iraq are understandably chagrined. Soldiers from the 3rd Infantry Division in Iraq voiced their grievances on ABC's Good Morning America recently. One soldier declared, "If [Defense Secretary] Donald Rumsfield were here, I'd ask for his resignation." He continued by saying, "I would ask him why we are still here. I don't have a clue as to why we are still in Iraq."

    What the brave soldier and many Americans do not understand is the United States is no longer an independent country. It is a global empire carrying out the whims and wishes of the internationalist cabal at the United Nations. Therefore, even after the 3rd Infantry Division returns from Iraq (whenever that is), American troops will yet be left in harm's way all over the world.

    In an attempt to deride me for my criticism of the Bush administration's policy in Iraq, a reader wrote, "We did not go to war with Iraq because of weapons of mass destruction. (Funny, I could have sworn that's the reason Bush gave.) We went to war because Iraq violated 17 UN resolutions, yet the UN lacked the backbone to respond." Actually, this reader is absolutely correct.

    Yes, my friends, America went to war against Iraq to do the bidding of the United Nations! And that's the same reason our troops remain in Iraq. Furthermore, that's the reason our troops are languishing in over 100 countries around the world. Our political leaders have become pawns of multinational corporations and entities. They do not act independently; neither do they act in the best interests of our troops or our people. It's all about money and power on a global scale.

    Perhaps this helps explain why the House of Representatives voted this week 74-350 to reject Rep. Ron Paul's bill to get America out of the United Nations. Therefore, throw away those yellow ribbons, because Johnny is never marching home!
