Stop the killing

16 April 2013, 10:00

It is sad to see the world turning on the Americans for their actions in Iraq. Yes they failed to find the weapons of mass destruction. That however doesn’t draw away from the fact that a dictator who had taken his country to war long before the Americans showed up. The very people who now claim to be victims of war are the same ones who put a mad man in power and they had the choice of changing their chosen leader but failed to do so.

The Americans have been accused of staging 911 but if you look at the facts it was the ineptitude of their FBI or homeland security that failed to stop it from happening. The fact is the psychos who committed the crime in the first place did so out of misguided illusions of heaven and virgins. The same people who now point fingers at the Americans are the same ones who spent hours in front of their TV sets watching the war and all its glory.

The soldiers who died did so for the freedom of others and the civilians who died in Iraq by virtue of their in-action became soldiers by default. When in war you will not always fight an army dressed in military garb carrying a gun. Sometimes the enemy is a child with a bomb strapped to his chest. Figures in the thousands have been given as the death toll in Iraq but how many of those people had been used as human shields by cowardly soldiers trying to evade the punishment they deserve.

Now I ask you is it war when you purposefully seek out civilians to kill? The cowards that blow up civilian gatherings are the worst of the worst. It is one thing to shoot at an enemy that threatens your life but it is atrocious when that enemy is just in your head.

The brain washed idiot that committed these crimes should be shot hanged then shot again and for good measure blown up.

If it is war then why is it that only civilian target are chosen? Any military strategy that revolves around killing civilians is wrong and these murderers will not find forgiveness for their actions. I only wish that the people could get along and stop this stupid waste of life.
