Ever notice, cowards who WOULD NOT SERVE themselves, like to wear military bomber jackets while sending others children to murder innocent folks while dying for the RothsRats?
Imagine for a moment that you had just sat down for dinner with your family when you hear drones flying over head. You and your family were about to take your first bite, when out of nowhere, hell fire missiles rain down from unmanned drones in the sky and blow up dozens of your neighbors, your children, spouse, or other family members, maiming and tearing limbs from dozens more. Imagine if this happened inside the United States. Imagine the reaction from politicians and the US war machine looking to right this wrong.
Would you, as an American citizen sit idly back and accept the excuse given by the country who carried out that attack? Would you accept the wholesale slaughter of your family and fellow citizens by the dozen if the country who led the attack said it was a mistake and we did it to “help” you? What if it was one of your children killed in the attack? Or your brother, sister, father, mother, or grand parent? Would you simply accept that this slaughter was a mistake and the “help” you are receiving from this country is worth it?
Well, that is exactly what the United States has been asking the citizens of Afghanistan and Iraq to do on a regular basis — hundreds of thousands of times since 9/11 and 72,000 times in just the last three years.
On New Year’s Eve, as Americans waited for the turn of the decade, the US government quietly released figures detailing the number of bombs dropped on Afghanistan and Iraq since 2015. The numbers are staggering.
Since just 2015, the US war machine has dropped over 133,000 bombs on people living in the desert on the other side of the planet. Of those 133,000 bombs, Trump dropped 72,000 in just the last three years.
Dropping bombs on brown people in the desert is non-partisan — Bush dropped tens of thousands of bombs, Obama dropped tens of thousands of bombs and Trump is now dropping tens of thousands of bombs. Tragically, despite arguing over the day’s irrelevant and highly divisive talking points, most politicians in D.C. agree that dropping bombs makes America great — including the ostensible “small government Republicans.” Well, Republicans, dropping a bomb on the other side of the planet every 21 minutes, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year is not small government.
The idea that these people claim to be against socialism while literally socializing wars for profit is hypocritical at best and utterly evil at worst. The money spent on war is inconceivably high. As TFTP reported earlier this year, just 3% of what the US spends on war in a year, could end hunger on the entire planet.
If you are one of those people like I used to be, that thinks dropping tens of thousands of bombs on brown people on the other side of the planet somehow makes us “safer,” you are unfortunately and sadly mistaken. It does the opposite and it is bankrupting the country — both morally and financially.
