Stop Killing People!

Stop Killing People!

Yesterday the United States dropped the Mother of All Bombs in Afghanistan. Yes, the "mother" of all bombs. Last week the U.S. launched 59 missiles into Syria. The week before that, the U.S. killed as many as 200 civilians in an airstrike in Mosul, Iraq. In 2016 alone, the U.S. dropped 26,171 bombs on 7 majority muslim countries. By all counts, U.S. "interventions" around the world since World War II are responsible for deaths numbering in many many millions.

On the domestic side, a couple of days ago we witnessed how a ticketed and seated passenger was "randomly selected" and then removed from an airplane by bloody force. Every year over 1,000 people are killed by police, many unarmed, and proportionally higher number of Blacks and Hispanics. Somewhere between 20,000-40,000 people die each year due to lack of health insurance - many because they can't afford it. And if we start counting "greed related deaths" such as profit driven medical overtreatment or deaths due to industrial toxic chemicals, we begin to ask, have we, at all levels, become a "culture of death".
