Holocaust Iraq: An inconvenient Truth

Today, the American public is no longer able to claim ignorance over the real cost of filling their SUVs with gas nor are they able to deny their status as a hypocritical, ungodly, pariah nation. Few people anywhere are unaware of America's dirty little grab for the resources of weaker nations. For every full tank of gas INNOCENT human blood has been spilt, particularly the blood of those least able to defend themselves, CHILDREN. When faced with undeniable and unpleasant realities Americans seek refuge in the unreality of their televisions or other distracting entertainments. The cost of the American lifestyle today is served to local populations for breakfast, however, the media is careful to neatly package all distasteful material in justifications, propaganda and flagrant lies (that have no currency anywhere but America).
The absolute DENIAL that religion offers Americans grows less comforting by the day as the Truth and life of the Christian saviour becomes impossible to ignore. Do we ignore that He taught us to love our enemies? Jesus also deplored affluence and wealth, He encouraged us to offer our coats when sued for our shirts, He abhorred liars and thieves and never spilt a drop of anyone's blood. He presents today as a very uncomfortable reality for the new hypocritical Evangelical congregations. Today, the world's most appalling hypocrites call themselves Christians.

Take little joy in the resignations and forced retirements of leading neo-cons from government and other institutions - it is merely a gesture, things must 'change' so that nothing substantial changes. If truth was pursued and integrity restored to government then the entire criminal organisation of neo-conservatives would be held accountable for their heinous crimes - but they are safe as the entire population is complicit in the first holocaust of the 21st century, the 660,000 innocent men, women and CHILDREN slaughtered in order for us to pursue our selfish, decadent and degenerate lifestyles.

"Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

It's is called Holocaust Redux, by Manuel Valenzuela, and it is a very, very good article. Since 1991, America has pretty much contributed to about 3-4 million dead Iraqis, and the number will continue to increase. This essay explains it all. Please do yourself a favor and read it.

I find this guy's work fascinating, passionate and inspiring. Highly recommended.
