France is the latest country to be a victim of mass murder. Killing deliberately has always been a given. The horror of such is magnified because of the site of this disgusting exhibition or because we all can relate, suddenly, to the fact that we are all human and threatened by “innocent” people being slaughtered?
Certainly the number of casualties cannot be appalling. The great and wonderful country , USA, launched a “war” totally unjustified against a country , Iraq, killing thousands daily. This war, coincidentally, was one of 2 that spawned the seeds of the mass murder demonic plague in the mid east.
These seeds , Al-Qaeda, ISIS, are now the declared enemy of all humans because their religion is adverse to Judaism or Christianity. It can be offered that this atrocity happened on the wrong continent. The dastardly acts of horror and inhumanity in Africa, Asia, South America seemingly were not as universally “heart felt”. That ,perhaps, is ignored because it has been a constant there since the genocidal exploitation of the colonialists has been minimized. The sick , malnourished, raped and psychologically maimed native inhabitants focus their murders on each other.
War on who now is the question? Many attempts to instigate war on Islam , a religious faith with 1.8 billion followers is being massaged by the right wing ,conservatives, Christians as a solution. That has a familiar ring to it . The fact is War never solved killing. In fact it has authorized all killing. Planned mass murder is what war is.
The current administration in the USA, and its chief, Barack Hussein Obama, has been a bane to all the Right wing, Conservatives ,”Christians” since he took office seven years ago. Every move he made was denounced and opposed by the same people who authorized the unjust war on Iraq. From rescuing the country from economic chaos, ending the slaughter of innocent mid easterners ,to bringing Americans finest specimens home he has not ever had “their” support.
He has chosen to negate this “gang warfare” by decapitation of leadership, starting with Bin Laden and other recognized Captains of the insane killers that have attempted to terrorize the planet at large with killing. The latest drone strike of “Jihadi John” was ignored as was the preceding eliminations of ISIS notables.
Paris could be viewed as a desperate last act by a dying force. A kamikaze move to escape the gallows of elimination. These small totally frustrated group attempts by the extreme are not nearly as insidious as any “War” or the daily horrors and planned elimination of freedom, justice and equality from every one.
The rejection and neglect of the less fortunate at home and abroad is resonated with the treatment proposed for”some” immigrants and refugees.This attitude is what will ultimately define our character as a nation and a people.
This President, and my country would have been better served to holding the leaders of that preceding criminal administration accountable and addressing the ” home made terrorism”within our borders.
Killing for any reason other than immediate self defense is the enemy of all of us. Regardless of skin color, religion or nationality, killing must be eventually,if not sooner, stopped or chosen as a resolution for anything.
Murder, Mass murder, is the ultimate terror by any means. A killing of any one of us is a undeniable threat to all of us
