    when people around the world are dying for no apparent reasons, Who is to blame, and can we trust the American with the truth on what is going on overseas in the war?

    we are to blame because it is us that has allowed governments to have so much control over our lives and it's only getting worse. there is no way i would trust the american or any other government to give us honest answers to what's going on over seas or in our own countries for that matter.

    If what you are asking boils down to, 'why are there ongoing wars in the world?' along with, 'who is to blame for the onging wars in the world?'. Then the answers are really not that difficult to discover.

    Wars make money. So follow the money. Where does all the money end up? Why - in a bank of course. So are the banks to blame? Yes - along with their political stooges who could not get elected without the connivance of the banks and who, also, formulate policy at the behest of the banks. (NB: I'm talking big banks: like the IMF, Federal Reserve and Bank of England, here - not your local highstreet variety.)

    Now you should be asking, 'why are food prices rising so dramatically all over the world?'. Simple - the banks are buying up all the food stocks and food futures (crops that haven't even been planted yet) and deliberately creating shortages. This will destabilize entire geo-political regions - with food riots breaking out all over the place - and lead to more wars.

    More wars = more money for the banks.

    We, the people, are to blame in a democratic society.  We are the government and those we have elected are sent there to office to carry out the desires of the majority. When they fail at that task in representing us...we fail.  Far too many people in this country believe that the government is the supreme entity.  The people are the supreme entity and the government is simply the apparatus used to implement our desires and needs.  We, the people, have lost sight of that fact and we have lost control of our own government...we need to fix that.

    All the above answers are GREAT! In a society where everyone is responsible will get the government that they deserve.

    The movie "the corporation " pretty much nailed it. We started going down the wrong path when a corporation was given the rights of a person. Now our government is beholden to these corporate criminals.

    I doubt if any government in any country tells the absolute truth about what shennanigans they get up to when waging war.   There is a television series on Australian Television at this time dealing exactly with this subject.   Lies are told for many reasons: to make the populace feel good, to cover up terrible government and military blunders, or simply to bring forward some underhanded plan which the majority of decent people would not approve of.

    Who is to blame?   Well, we are, of course.   We the people 'get the governments we deserve.'   Probably always will.  Until we change for the better, how can we expect the governments who serve us to improve?
