WikiLeaks Video of US Army in Iraq Killing Innocent Journalists and Civilians SHOOTING


They not only kill journalists and locals, they also kill those who try to help the wounded.  Two children were also wounded, but as our military says…oh! well!

Hysteria led to an overreaction that resulted in a disaster, just like after 9-11.

Quote of the Day: “Courage is grace under pressure.” — Ernest Hemingway

* The C.I.A.’s 1953 overthrow of the democratic government of Iran that led to all the problems we have with that country today 
The Gulf of Tonkin fraud that Lyndon Johnson used to entrench America in Vietnam 
* Support for groups in Afghanistan who went on to become the Taliban and Al Qaeda”

Well, we as a nation weren’t very graceful after 9-11. Our reaction led us to . . .

* Trash our Constitution and our Bill of Rights
* A bungled invasion of Afghanistan
* And a completely unnecessary war and occupation in Iraq

Sadly, this kind of thing has happened many times before. For instance . . .

Way back in 1898 the Battleship Maine exploded in Havana Harbor. Decades later the Navy determined that the explosion had been an accident, but . . . 

The hysterical way Americans reacted at the time led to a pointless war with Spain, followed by an evil war of colonial conquest in the Philippines.

In other words . . .

Hysteria led to an overreaction that resulted in a disaster, just like after 9-11.

Something similar happened during World War I. Our politicians loudly claimed neutrality, but they were not neutral. Instead . . . More

Letter to the Editor
Christian Science Monitor
Dear Sir (s):
     As a Lutheran pastor and ex-host of “Mark Dankof’s America” on the Republic Broadcasting Network, I wish to respond to your recent articles by Patrik Jonsson, entitled “Guardians of the free Republics Tied to Texas Radio Station,” and “Guardians of the free Republics:  Could Threats Spark Violence?”
