Obama's "Good War," or Warmongering By Any Other Name...

Post by Admin on Sun Aug 07, 2011 1:35 pm

Warmongering by any name, Republican, Democratic and especially when it's called "patriotism," is still warmongering. Murder is Murder.

The US-based Human Rights Watch (HRW) reported that civilians deaths from US-led occupation forces air strikes had nearly tripled between 2006 and 2007 and the Afghan Children Protection Organization (ACPO), local child protection agency, said in a September 2008 statement that among 700 civilians killed in the past six months in conflict, 40 per cent were children and women.

ATTRIBUTION: SAMUEL JOHNSON.—James Boswell, Life of Johnson, entry for Friday, April 7, 1775, p. 615 (1970).

“In Dr. Johnson’s famous dictionary patriotism is defined as the last resort of a scoundrel.

H. L. Mencken added this to Johnson’s dictum: “But there is something even worse: it is the first, last, and middle range of fools.”—The World, New York City, November 7, 1926, p. 3E.
