Remind me again... this is an alternative to what?

Obama Promises 10,000 More Troops for Afghanistan - CommonDreams.org

So Barak Obama, the Democratic Party candidate for President of the united States of America, vows to send 10,000 more soldiers to Iraq, oh wait... Afghanistan, to kill more Al Qa'ida, Taliban, wedding party guests, innocent women, children and elderly... for what reason?

And this is opposed to the Republican Party candidate who wants to send more troops to Afghanistan, no wait,... Iraq, or is it Iran? to kill more Al Qa'ida, Taliban, wedding party guests, innocent women, children and elderly... for what reason?

Could it be that the Democrats want to invade and occupy Afghanistan to maintain a safe corridor for oil and gas pipelines from the Caspian Sea region, and the Republicans want to invade and occupy Iraq and Iran to control the largest remaining reserves in the world of easily produced crude oil?

So where is this wonderful democratic system of government we're supposed to have in the united States that represents the people? All of the people, not just those in three piece suits being chauffeured to their penthouse offices in tall buildings in big cities.

What happened to government "of the people, by the people and for the people?"
