Political notes …. 2-19-15

When I was a young man I kept a poster picture of the famous My Lai massacre during the Vietnam war . United States soldiers led by Officer Calley murdered over 100 Vietnamese women and children by rounding them up and shooting then indiscriminately . This massacre was used by the anti war movement to argue against this unjust, senseless war. Today we use drones that burn the flesh of the body but we never see the casualties. We lecture the world about terrorism while all over the world we drone both the guilty and the innocent. Are drones more “civilized” than beheading? Most of the world is not listening for they see this country as the biggest hypocrite on this planet. ? As Obama lectures the world about democracy they ask “But what about the prison in Guantanamo. Is that how people who believe in democracy treat prisoners of war ?” Drones, torture and world domination….. has anything changed with Obama in office?

Political notes …… 1-9-15

Just as I condemn the killing of innocent civilians in France by alleged “radical Islamists,” I too condemn those Christians who support the drone attacks that have killed so many innocent civilians. These drone attacks that result in a painful death with your flesh burning off your bones are just as horrible as beheading . We should be consistent in our definition of terrorism which involves the taking of innocent lives. The “collateral damage” caused by our drones is seen as terrorism by many around the world . You cannot lecture the world about terrorism while you drone people around the world.
