Make no mistake. America is directly or indirectly responsible for most world conflicts. Across North Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia, it plays the lead role.
Afghanistan has been occupied for nearly 11 years. US air and ground attacks murder civilians daily. Pre-2003 Iraq no longer exists. America destroyed the cradle of civilization.
It’s complicit in daily Israeli state terror against Palestinian civilians. It ravaged and murdered tens of thousands of Libyans. It’s using death squad invaders against Syrians. Civilian men, women and children are prime targets. Everyone supporting peace and stability is vulnerable.
It’s not enough. Plans call for full-scale war. Washington fights dirty. Scorched earth belligerence is policy. Target states aren’t just attacked. They’re willfully, maliciously, and lawlessly destroyed.
People are massacred in cold blood. Propagandists call it humanitarian intervention. War is peace. Orwell warned us long ago.
Only imperial dominance matters. Hegemons accept nothing less. Human lives are of no consequence. It’s been that way since America’s beginning. It’s ongoing today with WMD ease.
