and yet...

"Sooner or later everyone sits down to a banquet of consequences" – Robert Louis Stevenson

Let us pretend

Let us pretend that the US & UK governments believed that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction…

Let’s pretend that Bush and Blair were ‘Christians’, and that the God of Christ confirmed to them through meditation, that war was the right course of action, because it was for freedom and human rights…

Let’s pretend, if we believe in a God, that God is like that…

And let’s pretend, if we don’t believe in God – that men such as these are ‘rational’…

Let’s all pretend…

 

Let’s ignore that war is big business, that the US economy, as it exists right now, depends on the manufacture of weaponry and the machines of warfare…

Let’s ignore that war creates massive profits for corporations such as Lockheed & Raytheon, who have a captive customer in the Pentagon…

Let’s ignore that these companies invest millions in political donations and retirement jobs for Generals…

Let’s ignore that they invest more millions in think tanks like ‘The Atlantic Council’ and ‘The Council on Foreign Relations’; outfits which are staffed by regime change zealots whose purpose in life is to make the world a profitable place for US banks & corporations…

Let’s just ignore all that…

 

Let’s overlook that we funded the Mujahedeen…

Let’s overlook they morphed into al-Qaeda…

Let’s overlook that Saddam was ‘our guy’ when he was using chemical weapons in Iran…

Let’s overlook that Osama bin Laden was ‘our guy’, until we pissed him off by putting US troops on holy land…

Let’s overlook we funded ISIS…

Let’s overlook we’re ignoring UN Resolutions, whilst preaching international law…

Let’s overlook the preliminary moves we are putting on Iran – our next candidate for ‘death by freedom’

Let’s overlook our support for an Apartheid regime in Tel Aviv and their illegal occupation of Palestine…

Let’s overlook our support for the Wahhabi backed Head-Choppers in Riyadh…

Let’s overlook the bombs, the famine and the cholera in Yemen; which is being carried out by Saudi Arabia, with weapons and knowhow from the US and Britain…

Yeah, let’s overlook all that…

 

And one more thing…let’s ignore that our media pretends none of this is going on…let’s pretend that they don’t ignore what is staring them straight in the face…and let’s pretend that journalists at the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Financial Times, CNN, CNBC, Fox, BBC …et al…don’t see the terror that we create in the name of freedom and human rights…and then choose to look away…

 

Yes Amigos…let’s all pretend…

 

Or not…

Not in my name, a war on Iran

Not with my blessing, a proxy war with Russia in Ukraine

Not with my support, the continued abuse of the Palestinian people

Not with my consent, a nuclear strike on North Korea

Do you hear me you evil fuckers?

Not in my name

21st Century Plague
