Above the law (21 Sep, 2021)

The USA is often heard to decry the concept of "state sponsored terrorism" -- whilst engaging in exactly the same thing itself, even if only by accident or negligence.

How many innocent lives have been lost by way of "collateral casualties" as a result of its drone attacks against "bad actors" in foreign sovereign nations?

Is this even remotely acceptable?

We've seen what happened in the wake if 9/11 when the USA set out on a campaign of "revenge attacks" against those responsible. How long will this "tit for tat" exchange of innocent lives be allowed to continue?

When will someone stand up and say "we're the bigger man/nation, we refuse to allow more innocent lives to be lost"?

And isn't the USA a victim of its own meddling in other countries' business?

Why do they feel the need to "pick sides" in what are often civil conflicts within other sovereign nations?

How can we end this nasty circle of violence?

Will those responsible for the latest deaths of innocent Afghan civilians be held to account for the innocent lives they took and is "sorry, have some money" an adequate response from the USA?

There has to be a global revolution. It won't happen because the stranglehold the government has on us (all Western countries) is huge.

Regrettably, I suspect that the USA is riding on the coat tails of it's WWII successes and somehow hasn't noticed how much the world has changed, since then.

But it's all the fault of the, (in no particular order), Chinese, Iranians, North Koreans, Russians, and all those bloody socialists in Europe. If it wasn't for them, everything would be peachy.
