American troops or Alqaida

If we sided with one group or another such as supporting American troops or Alqaida; unless we are neutral, or stop them from terrorizing humanities, we are participating in total destruction of the world. Terrorism continued under Obama as was the case regime before him. Pakistan has been hit again and again by America and some other forces whose identities can’t for certain be determine.

Antidote to Drug War Madness -- In These Times
So I was making dinner, and on NPR I hear, to my amazement, a report by Robert Siegel and Michele Norris marking April 20 as Marijuana Observance Day. “We’re hearing more talk about legalizing marijuana,” noted Norris, “and not just from those who are lighting up.”I, myself, lit up —metaphorically—over this.
