A chilling scene that every American needs to watch. When the US liberated Nazi concentration camps, US soldiers forced German citizens to come back and see what they had done….these citizens knew what was being done in their names. Is this any different than the US today after Iraq? Where we all just sit back and claim we didn’t know what war criminals Bush, Cheney, Brennan did in our names?
Hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children have been killed and continue to be killed…not because of our desire to “liberate” or spread freedom and democracy, but because, after Bush II especially, we blatantly and overtly became a nation of war profiteers, marauding killers.
The American people cannot ignore this any longer. Every voter, every man, woman and child who refuses to accept the horrifying truth of this remains complicit in these war crimes.
America did not fail when such atrocities were committed. America fails every day Americans fail to recognize this truth and accept responsibility for what we have done.
America fails as we continue to kill innocent men, women and children all across the globe….and for what? Ask yourself. And to the extent you don’t know the answer to the question, the answer is….
WE KILL TO SUPPORT THE CORPORATIONS THAT PROFIT FROM THE WAR CRIMES.
Support our soldiers and the men and women that serve. Speak out for them because they cannot. We should bring them home and care for them when the get here. This is no criticism of the men and women who serve and who served, this is a criticism of the political powers that sent them into harm’s way.
And we should always ask the question:
What if we had declared war on war, and dedicated ourselves to actually winning hearts and minds…instead of wanton, indiscriminate killing?
