US Soldier: "The Real Terrorist Was Me And The Real Terrorism Is This Occupation"

This powerful testimony by veteran Michael Prysner was delivered in March 2008 alongside testimony from many other Iraq veterans against the war. Every single word of this is relevant to the occupation of Palestine today, which the US funds and supports.

"Our real enemies are not those living in a distant land whose names or policies we don’t understand; The real enemy is a system that wages war when it’s profitable, the CEOs who lay us off our jobs when it’s profitable, the insurance companies who deny us health care when it’s profitable, the banks who take away our homes when it’s profitable. Our enemies are not 5000 miles away. They are right here at home." - Mike Prysner
