America the brave?

This week we have seen a good deal of media coverage to the situation in North Korea where nuclear weapons are alleged to have been set in place for a proposed attack on South Korea.

Several media outlets have openly condemned North Korea in recent days and rightly so.  However with the current climate and some raising questions as to how the United States will respond it may be a good time to remind those not up to speed on war crimes of a different kind

Since the end of the second world war, ironically from dropping nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki the United States have bombed numerous countries no less than 23 times.  Yep, that is a lot of bombing and millions upon millions of innocent civilian deaths.  All leaving blood on the hands of Uncle Sam.  In Iraq alone since the outbreak of war in March 2003 there have been over 500,000 civilian deaths alone.  All in the name of America’s greed for oil money.

China 1950-53
Guatemala 1954 
Indonesia 1958 
Cuba 1959-60 
Guatemala 1960 
Congo 1964
Peru 1965 
Laos 1964-73 
Vietnam 1961-73 
Cambodia 1969-70 
Guatemala 1967-69 
Grenada 1983

El Salvador 1980s
Nicaragua 1980s 
Panama 1989
Iraq 1991-Present
Sudan 1998

Whilst any bombs dropped by North Korea in the coming weeks would leave the world as we know it in a most frightening state we must not forget the many decades of atrocities committed by the USA and her allies, including Australia.

This ANZAC day we should not glorify war.  We must remember those who fought for our freedom and condemn not just North Korea but America, Britain, Australia and all countries involved in wars at present.

Justice, the American way!

There are no winners and no heroes from war.  This, we must never forget.
