What you could do with all that killing machine money!

From here:

…what’s rarely mentioned is that the US is in the midst of a dental care crisis. According to the National Association of Dental Plans, 114 million Americans don’t have dental insurance, including 46.3 million people aged 65 or older. And for those who do, the costs of dental work can still be out of reach.

I understand that people do not get nearly as worked up over teeth as they do dropping bombs on people that don’t look like them and don’t behave the way you want them to behave, but it’s real.

People could have better teeth and suffer less as opposed to people getting bombs dropped on them that end up suffering more.

Ah, the stupid promises of politicians!

UK Prime Minister Theresa May:

She continued: “It is time to say enough is enough.

As if there is some switch that can be thrown, or some mental step that can be taken and terror attacks will disapper.

Remember that Tony Blair believed war criminal Bush and headed into Iraq right behind the U.S..  And the people who started ISIS were in American detention before they got out.

People can pretend that the West did not destroy Iraq and that these attacks are not clearly connected to that conflict but there is not switch that turns this off.

Certainly not a military switch, we’ve been throwing that switch since September 11.

What if the ‘job’ in Afghanistan can’t be finished??

From Reuters here:

Some relatives of the U.S. dead ask whether their loved ones have died in vain, particularly as U.S. administrations are reluctant to commit a large amount of resources to a conflict that is often forgotten.

“I feel like my husband’s death is being dismissed and like my husband died for nothing,” Alexandra told Reuters.

“We need to finish the job instead of just continuing to just barely get up to the line… we need to make my husband’s death mean something,” she said.

The muddled and dangerous nugget at the center of the War on Terror

From the Guardian here:

His comments drew immediate criticism from the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, with Sir Michael Fallon, the defence secretary, accusing Corbyn of “very muddled and dangerous thinking” that implied blame on Britain for somehow bringing the Manchester terror attack on itself.

The idea that you can invade countries in the Middle East, conduct drone operations and special operations missions and people of those countries will never fight back in whatever way they can is muddled and dangerous.

 

 

Finally a politician admits the West is stimulating terrorist attacks

From the Guardian here:

“Many experts, including professionals in our intelligence and security services, have pointed to the connections between wars our government has supported or fought in other countries and terrorism here at home,” he said.

Jeremy Corbyn, UK politician!

Are you outraged by the killing of innocent children?

From the Guardian here:

In a report released on Monday, the UN documented 11,418 casualties, a 3% increase since 2015, including 3,498 deaths.

Child casualties rose 24% – to 923 killed and 2,589 wounded – mainly as a result of ground engagements closer to residential areas, and explosive remnants of war.

While the total number of killed marked a slight drop, the number of injured has grown 6% since 2016.

923 children killed in Afghanistan in 2016!

Brown children are children too, and their deaths are just as tragic, unjust, and barbaric as what happened at the Manchester Arena last night.
