To The Daily Sun,
The United States has achieved dubious records in its military aggression in Middle Eastern countries. We have dropped more bombs, killed more people, spent more money, and still (14 years later) have no reasonable time limits to our occupation and dominance of countries we are trying to rescue! One thing is very clear: the only enterprise that has profited is the armaments industry. Their profits are supported by most politicians whereas not one of them has spoken out against our corrupt policies that support wars year after year. Isn't that an obvious fact if you review the lack of rational in our continued support for changing loyalties and new alliances, keeping the world in constant guesswork of who is in charge
and who is the enemy, at this time?
The United States mission (unspoken, non-admitted) is to bomb countries until they submit to our version polices that agree with our overall goals. Forty years ago we dropped 7 million tons of bombs on Vietnam, killing 3 million civilians. We were there to save them from communist rule. Instead they were victims of our calumny and deceit. Here again, the bombing raids achieved nothing less than huge profits for the arms industry at the cost of millions of lives. Can you reasonably explain it any other way?
The bombing and invasion of Iraq is something no one wants to talk about. It is very clear: it was a mistake. Over a half a million civilians and soldiers paid for our treachery, but here again — agents for the arms industry (most of our senators and reps) said little or nothing about this tragedy. Has Christian ethics been sold out for monetary gains? Do Americans see how the military has had the last word, doing as they please with no restrictions on the supply of money they use. There always has been a concerted effort to justify further bloodshed. Gullible Americans still believe they are in danger. There are no facts, now or ever, to support these baseless fears. None!
Support candidates who speak out strongly against endless wars. Restore America to decency, truth, resolving conflicts with negotiations and peaceful accords. Ban bombing raids and violence. Be the champion for truth and Christian values. It is your responsibly.
