f I thought for one minute that my child was either of the young men represented in the deer hunter type photo I would never have a good night's
sleep ever again, and dammit I deserve to sleep at night. Can those who justified these type of actions explain why that dead young man is naked?
That photo speaks of depravity, and it makes me angry that it's being defended at all.
Isn't it bloody well time we all did a collective regroup on all of our thinking? Like why the US unsigned from the International Criminal Court?
Why the Geneva Convention was thrown out the window?
Why is our collective thinking illustrating and defending what is base, rather than seeking to elevate?
How in the name of all that's rational and sane is it considered okay to keep on invading others and inflicting maximum harm? How is the expansion
of bases and power all over the world in any way protecting us back home? Re-think this erroneous belief, please! All it's ever done is promote
others to exercise resentment and revenge, and the proof lies in our justified fear of terrorism. Well be scared everyone, because we've earned it.
Some countries started escalating this policy of coersion and intimidation with operation Paperclip, in the US. (My parents were Americans and my
father served.) But the other big powers did it too.
I hope with the publication of those photos, that we in the coalition countries will do a huge, massive rethink, of just what our soldiers and our
weaponry types are doing to the world, not to forget our outmoded world policies.
We need to rethink the need for kill units at all. Do we really need murder squads? What evaluation is being done on the members of that type of
unit in theater? It's high time we looked at it. And since it's not being done by the top-down, maybe we on the bottom-rung of the power ladder
can initiate it from the bottom-up. The top brass should begin to provide better advice to the politicians, informing them more honestly of the
consequences and risks of their policies.
I hope it's not too late to reign in this beast called war (invasion/police action), because the world needs to find balance and peace. The pendulum
has swung wa-a-ay too far.
