The enemy is at home

Watch and think about this short and provactive speech by an Iraq veteran on the real reasons we are (still) there and the tragedy that "poor and working people from this country and sent to kill poor and working people in another country to make the rich richer. His conclusion: "the real enemy is at home." It is so easy to forget the profit motive for war but soldiers see it like this young man and another vet returned from Afghanistan I just spoke with. And, of course, Eisenhower knew and warned us about it. Be sure to catch the James Madison quote at the end. (Hat tip Mish.)
