Recession And More War.
All of my life war has raged in every corner of the Globe. Palestine, Africa, Korea, Afghanistan, Iraq and now The USA and Iran are squaring up, big time. The start of 2012 is terrifying and so repetitive.
As for the atrocities pictured above, there are also no endings. However the biggest atrocity of all is the stupidity of politicians and their dreadful inability for diplomacy and negotiation. The grand United nations plan descended into the usual horse trading, talking shop farce. The EU is more disruptive and damaging than of any real influence for good.
In my advancing years I cannot recall one buffoon ever owning up to hating conflict. Indeed they are as careless with the minions they commit to fighting as they are to the very nature of their failed actions. Yet one more atrocity shrugged away.
I always believed 9/11 was more about a financial attack, goading our moronic leaders to commit to billions of dollars on yet more atrocity and war thereby bankrupting us all morally as well as financially. Time after time we are led into death and torture, rape and genocide with so little real input from those paid handsomely to protect us all.
So endemic has conflict and miserable torment become, there is a propaganda industry paid millions to brainwash the populations that they and only their paymasters know best.
The revolutionary protests sweeping the World with a sense of "enough is enough" are being stamped on with the well practised atrocity meted out elsewhere on dubious grounds. As Iran, in my opinion, with some justification, seek to protect their interests, we are led to believe, or made to feel, somehow our lot are innocent players.
The real truth is emerging, however. The USA and EU wannabe World bosses are the ones every bit as guilty of perpetuating the atrocity of war. My vitriol and violent anger and wrath is becoming theirs alone. They are the despots and we put them there. Mea Culpa? Probably but so despicable to contemplae.
