Dear Friends, sadly this photograph seems to represent 'America Nouveau', a once admired democratic country now run by a fascist dictator called George Bush and an elite group of his fundamentalist Judeo-Christian, capitalism-worshipping friends.
America Nouveau, a military superpower, having swept aside its democratic foundations and ignored the wishes of most of its people, is currently engaged in the invasion and occupation of oil-rich countries in the Middle East. Two have been taken down. Iran is next cab off the rank, one that might well involve nukes.
America Nouveau, caring nothing about international laws or conventions, or the sovereignty of other nations, or the grave concerns and protest of the international community, or the deaths of unknown numbers of innocent civilians, is using the pretext of fighting terror (whatever that means) to engage in a blatant grab for world military dominance AND major control of important world oil resources, one that has seen no equal since Hilter in 1939.
The country that helped to beat Hitler is now, it seems, emulating Nazi imperialism and tactics!
Interestingly, the eagle, that brutal king of birds, has symbolic links to both regimes!
The irony is monumental, the implications dire!
