    Ask yourself, in all honesry, what would you do if your electricity, sewage, water supply, food, pharmaceuticals were cut off, would you be able to resist the urge to respond in a criminal, or violent manner, to those responsible for your outright torture? As you watch football, eat Thanksgiving leftovers, it is hard for most to empathize with those who have been described as bloodthirsty terrorists. But most are not. Most are mainly guilty of democratically voting for a government that chooses to resist those who have laid siege to them, because they voted for a government that was not a sell out to those who take their very most basic human needs. Look into they eyes of your children, and try to tell me that you would not resist your oppressors, if they put you, and your family into an open air prison, with no hope of escape, no hope for freedom. WHAT WOULD YOU DO? While we enjoy our freedoms, our abundance, and our national pride, try to think what, just for one minute only. What would you do?
