Humans have committed unspeakable acts of cruelty, torture and mass murder throughout history. It is easier to maintain a clear conscience by ignoring what is going on if a country has nothing to do with the wars, atrocities and genocide.
This not the case for Americans since the end of the WWII, as author V.C Thomas believes that the US is responsible for invading and the massive carpet bombing (which involves almost no US casualties) of several nations for years on end because of perceived threats from communists and terrorists.
“Collateral Damage” is not an excuse when the enemy does not have military power or weapons of mass destruction or the means to invade and attack the US.
The wars and bombings by the US since WWII in Asia and the Middle East (all initiated by the US) are being justified by Right Wing Evangelical Fundamentalist Christian Conservatives (RWEFCC) in America, based on the God of the Old Testament Bible (OTB) and Revelations in New Testament both of which have nothing to do with, in fact contradicts, the teachings of Jesus. The US enemy since WWII has always been “non-Christian” and “non-European”. The threat of the US being attacked by communist Korea and Vietnam (small weak countries) was no more than that of being attacked by the Soviet Union and China. Korea and Vietnam were invaded and subjected to 4 years and 10 years of US aerial bombing & ground war using modern weapons of destruction.
About 20 people were responsible for the attack on the World Trade Center (WTC) in New York City (NYC) in September 2001. The US response was to invade attack and bomb Muslim countries almost continuously since September 11, 2001 (9-11). Muslim countries were put through death and suffering. Muslim countries were the strongest US allies until the end of the cold war (1990) and they were armed by the US during this period. Indiscriminately destroying everyone and everything in Muslim countries is not justified in retaliation for the WTC-NYC bombing by about 20 individuals.
Since the Gulf war and the end of the Cold War, the U.S. has terrorized and destroyed the lives of millions of people in Muslim countries, including children, with years of aerial bombing. The amateurish retaliation called “terrorism” by a handful of so-called “terrorists” using homemade bombs is insignificant in comparison. U.S. wars in the Middle East are to support Israel (to hasten Armageddon and enable the Second Coming of Christ) by dismantling Muslim countries.
