Post American

George Orwell once remarked, "The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them."

If terrorists detonate bombs killing 3,000+ innocent civilians it is an atrocity. If Americans drop bombs from planes killing 100,000+ innocent civilians it is a noble cause.

It seems to me that most Pro-War/Pro-Life Christians in the United States (i.e. George W. Bush) live in a bubble of delusion and fantasy. US Troops occupying Iraq have savagely killed Sunni And Shiite Muslims. Some Christian Religious Leaders have called for the assassination of Hugo Chavez because he has a lot of oil. Last week the White House denied that God told the President of the United States to invade Iraq! Since they lack total credibility, I have to ask how does George W. Bush know he was talking to God and not the Devil?

Ever heard of the Crusades, Palestine, The Shah of Iran, Abu Graib? Most Americans think Jihad means Holy War, when it really means an inner struggle with oneself. The majority of Americans are peace loving people - maybe 20% of Bush's followers support violence. Americans need to speak in a united voice for condemnation of Torture, Pre Emptive Violence, and Nuclear Weapons of Mass Destruction. Until the world can feel safe from such atrocities the mantra that the USA stands for Freedom and Peace ring hollow.

"In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act."George Orwell

So when do we get invaded to remove the rogue government that spies on its own people, gases its own people during anti War protests, stages "terrorist" attacks, holds crooked elections, attacks other nations without cause, and uses torture on innocent people looking for WMD that don't exist?
