Shame? Are We Capable of It?

There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people. -- Howard Zinn (1922–2010)

In a world where news means propaganda, transparency means secrecy, liberation means slavery, sustainability means death, patriotism means terrorism, democracy means imperialism, change means more of the same, and promises are lies, most of our governmental leaders feel right at home.

The brutal and indiscriminate American terror bombings in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and now Syria were all based on the lie that we were somehow aiding the citizens of those beleaguered countries.

Beleaguered? Yes, because of the paid, heavily armed, and crazed mercenaries we sent into those countries to destabilize their legitimate governments, before we bombed their people and infrastructure into death and ruins.
