I have been thinking about Israel and the US lately.....
How alike they are in their corrupt ways.
What has been on my mind are how the elites of the two nations operate.
The governments. The decision makers. The ones with the power.
The power to decide who lives and who dies.
They decide to take the lives of others.
They offer up the sacrifice of their own peoples.
All for the most surreal of goals. They claim it is always for security, safety, peace.
Well you get the idea.
If not, I'll help.
Iraq. The attack on Iraq was necessary because Iraq allegedly had weapons of mass destruction, and were a threat to the entire world! So we were told over and over and over. Therefore, the country had to be destroyed, hundreds of thousands of civilians killed, scores more maimed, for the world to be safe.
Israel says Gaza has to be attacked for it's citizens to be safer. Therefore Israel has to go into Gaza and cause mayhem, destruction and death on a scale beyond my imagination. For Peace. For Security. It has to kill in the most wanton and despicable ways for security? Does that make sense?
And that the elites get enough of the population to go along with this, through propaganda usage just NEVER ceases to amaze me.
Well there it is, what has been on my mind- I want to include some food for thought.
On Oct. 1, 1946, judgment was delivered by the Nuremberg Tribunal. Robert H Jackson, the US Prosecutor at Nuremburg who went on to become a US Supreme Court Justice said:
“To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole. ...Crimes against international law are committed by men, not by abstract entities, and only by punishing individuals who commit such crimes can the provisions of international law be enforced.”
