Burning witches at the stake?
We the people of the USA, the self-proclaimed civilized people of the world, think that horrific practice ended with the last burning of a witch in Salem, Massachusetts.
It didn’t end.
Now, instead of lighting a match under one person, whom we the people or we the government judge evil enough to warrant torching that person into a premature after-life, we the people or we the government evolved that evil ritual into dropping a bomb (or many bombs) on throngs of people all at once, whom we label to be evil, halfway around the world, torching men, women and children prematurely into an after-life they weren’t prepared to enter. How evil is that?
Our evil desire to commit evil acts, under the guise of self-defense, and in defense of the good people of the world, against those we judge through our evil prism to be evil hasn’t changed since the last burning of a witch. And who are the real witches anyway? The ones who are torched or the ones doing the torching?
” That’s war” is a lame excuse that all USA presidents use to justify the evil acts they commit in we the people’s name.
When are the people of America going to say, “stop warring in our name, stop committing atrocities in our name, stop saying you’re doing it for us, stop saying you know more than we know, stop saying all of America agrees with your evil actions. We don’t.
We’re not at war with Iran. We’re not at war with Libya. We’re not at war with Egypt. We’re not at war with Syria. None of the governments of those countries committed acts of war against the USA, yet we bombed the hell out of Egypt, establishing a no-fly zone. We bombed the witch out of Egypt is what we did, all for a bunch of protestors who didn’t really know what they wanted, and still don’t know what they want, except a democracy that goes their way on all issues all of the time. When it doesn’t, they, through the military, stage a coup. And there will be another and another. That sounds like a dictatorship to me, that Egyptians can’t seem to wash from their DNA. They’ve been under a dictatorship for so long that it’s in their blood.
We messed up Iraq and we’re messing up every other Middle East country that we poke our nose into by calling them evil, thereby justifying the burning at the stake, or death by the bomb, anyone who doesn’t want a USA styled democracy.
We never got that old England DNA out of our system did we? But instead of colonizing, we go in and take over policy through promises of money, just long enough to set up our military bases and spy machines to keep that country’s people and government under the watchful eye of our thumb, while our own country is sinking deeper and deeper into poverty. That’s what dictators do, they spend all their resources on military might at the expense of a better life for their own citizens. We opened that door and walked right through it without blinking.
