Ill give you that. Artists need to express their ideas. Have you ever heard the old adage, Never talk about religion and politics with friends? There is a reason why that saying has been around for years.
As far as the "truth" about the US wars. We as a country will never agree on the "truth". I don't believe our government acted on some selfish, monetary act. That is ridiculous. We went to Iraq for the oil right? Thats why the oil price is higher than ever, right?
The fact that we will never agree on truths is the reason why a smart individual who makes their livelihood off the support of the masses should be careful what they discuss. This is why ever major organization has gone crazy about PC.
Now, I don't necessarily believe in being PC all the time but I am a patriot first. Some Americans forgot 9/11. Some Americans believe that we blew up the Towers ourselves. Some believe that the Bush government lied.... read past the New York Times headlines, educate yourself, everyone in the world thought Saddam had WMDs, including his subordinates.
Now see, there we go again, can't agree on Politics. Reason again, Dream Theater should go back to their roots... Images and Words, Awake, Change of Seasons, etc..
DT is worrying me these days with so many political, anit-american stuff
