There are 200,000 stories and more about the deaths of non-combatants in Iraq, Afganistan, and now Lebanon. They are attached to real lives and real tragedies in real families. Those 200,000 men, but mostly women and children who have died in the most recent extension of the Middle East War may be multiplied a hundred fold with American,UK, and Israeli use of depleted uranium munitions. The millions affected by these tragedies may have foreign sounding names and they may speak in other languages than me but their tragedies are real... They are human beings with souls just like me.
As far as Fox and CNN, I don't watch tee vee and any of its propaganda mechanisms. I was part of that machine of disinformation and misinformation when I was in the army over 25 years ago. I have not watched the news in over 13 years except for severe weather warnings unless it was by chance on someone else's tee vee. You figure out how the media is a propaganda device and it can no longer be a means providing the truth. Once the Wizard of Oz's veil of deception is removed, you will not fear the foolish man behind the curtain.
Way back when, we were preparing to launch a war in Iran, just as we are doing today. We were briefed about what we would do to win the war in the Middle East. We devised plans to soften the other nations who might support Iran. We were to destabilize the entire region by assasinating Muslim leaders. We would also disguise ourselves as Muslims and kill Muslims to keep the Muslims fighting each other and prevent them from uniting against us. We would destroy the Muslims economiocally. We would destroy their infrastructure and supply opposing Muslim nations with weapons to fight against each other. We would do every evil there ever was to win the war in the Middle East. That war has been going on all along. It is just that the media does not tell it the way those war planners told it to us way back when. The media was and remains simply psyops.
If you think I am an ignorant peacenik, think again. I had a short meeting with God. When I cam back, I had no desire to assassinate my enemies leaders; I had no interest in disguising myself as a Muslim to kill Muslims; I had no interest in the destroying the econmomy of Middle Eastern nations; I wanted nothing to do with sabatoging powerplants and water treatment plants; I had no desire to kill or maime...or do anything to anyone...any more.
I have no Muslim enemies. In fact, I have no Jewish, Hindu, Christian, Atheist, or any other kind of enemies. By even writing this letter though, rest assured, there are men who believe that I am their enemy. A Pacifist is the enemy of every general and corporate war machine. I never killed anyone with a weapon way back when but every year, I read that this or that nation is fighting against one another and this or that leader is killed...I know I was a part of why radicalized Muslims hate America today. For every person we murder, we create a whole family of men, women, and children who hate America. One day, if we do not end our campaigns of destabilization and murder, every family in the world will hate America...one family at a time.
If I raise a banner for peace, don't think I am ignorant about war. I know very well how the other side manipulates the truth but just because there are evil men in other nations does not mean I should be evil to oppose evil.
I know too much about war. I know there are evil men on the other side who were just like me back before I met God...men who sit in rooms and plan evil plans...just like I did.... Many speak different languages...they belong to corporations and other nations...but I don't make evil plans any more. I will not participate in their bloody wars. I do not respond to fear with hate. I am not afraid of death. On the eve of World War III, I lay my odds with God and not some god who loves Jihad...or some god who whispers in men's ears to attack other nations for freedom and democracy. I believe in a different God than the god of war. When we attack Iran and Syria, it will be the beginning of the end. The freedom to say what I am saying today will be taken away. I may end up in some gulag for what I can say freely today but I must say what I have to say before that right is taken away. The only way to stop the madmen in charge of the ongoing war that was started over 25 years ago is to refuse to participate in their wars and refuse to send our sons and daughters to them. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they are the children of God.
