In 2003, the global marches against George W Bush and his administrations headlong rush into the American genocide in Iraq was largely ignored by the US media. This was in spite of the fact that these marches were larger than the recent so-called ‘womens march’ when population is taken into account. Even now, Bush’s program of kidnapping torture and unilateral invasions of sovereign nations is having trouble finding its way through the courts.
The problem is that unless and until the Bush/Cheney cabal is ever held responsible for their war crimes, America, and the world -but especially America- will continue its downward spiral into fascist oblivion. Interestingly, according to international laws, when the people of a nation fail to bring their war criminal leaders to justice, the entire population is deemed war criminals, wholly complicit. In a worst case scenario, that is now the case in America. The only further depth to which the United States could descend would be to see itself the subject of a fury, as was the bombing of Dresden.
joey’s note: I once spoke at length with a bomber pilot who bombed Dresden, telling me his great shame because “They told us to aim for the steeples.”
Former President Obama, who was too tepid to go after Bush, told us “We should look forward, not back.” But that was a huge mistake, and we are still in Iraq to this very day.
In much the same way, American voters can never allow the Democrats, under Hillary Clinton, to get away with the election tampering they, led by the Democratic National Committee, perpetrated against the devoted supporters of Bernie Sanders.
Many rank and file Hillary supporters now call for unity among the left, but where was that sentiment when it counted most- when it could have kept a Donald Trump presidency where it belonged- in the netherworld realm of dark nightmares?
With the world now facing climate oblivion, the American people should not be too quick to see Donald Trump and his Exxon-Mobil State Department as the problem, when they are but the symptom. The problem is the DNC, the Clintons, and their lunatic centrist Blue Dog Democrats who stole the primary from Bernie Sanders and handed the American people a breakdown in place of a breakthrough.
