"False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil." Plato
Legend has it that the Hydra with the body of a serpent and numerous heads, could never be harmed by any weapon, and if any of the other heads were severed another would grow in its place. Attacking cattle and local villagers, it devoured them with its numerous heads, totally terrorizing the vicinity for many years. According to legend, Heracles defeated the Hydra.
The reality we live in is that a far worse creature than the legendry hydra is terrorizing the global village. As one head is de-commissioned, another replaces it; Rumsfeld with Gates, Casey with Petraeus, and so on. Its contemptuous greed unfulfilled, the Iraqi devastation only vetted the appetite of the ungodly creature; and so venomous lies spew out in preparation for an attack on the next country – Iran, with 72 innocent lives waiting to be annihilated.

lying than in protecting the Americans, as with their commander-in-chief, would
have the nation believe that weapons killing Americans are coming from
In the reality we live in, this Hydra too, has its weakness and its strength. What empowers and feeds it is apathy. Its weakness is the collective will of a well-informed nation. The arrow that will rid that nation of its destructive ways, is the Constitution of the United States. Failure to do this, will be the destruction of the U.S. as we know it.
