And yet another dark page is turned in the saga of humanity versus Empire. One monster attacks a smaller monster and other monsters join in, each vying for a place at a table of rot where the pie is being slowly polluted by industry, violence and greed. Big monsters, little monsters, monsters with nukes, monsters with barrel bombs, secular monsters, religious monsters, monsters with money, monsters with none.
And in the end its everyone else, the mothers, the fathers, the children, the elderly, the artists, the scientists, the teachers, the doctors, the nurses, the janitors, the addicts, the pious, the prostitutes, the sick, the poor, the mentally ill, who get bombed, who get gassed, who get tortured, who have their water supplies poisoned, or who get maimed by the state, or who get blown apart to smithereens.
This lament, and perhaps epitaph, is in regard to what a sad species we are if this is the best we can do.

“I’m deeply concerned that these strikes could lead to the United States once again being dragged back into the quagmire of long-term military engagement in the Middle East. If the last 15 years have shown anything, it’s that such engagements are disastrous for American security, for the American economy and for the American people.” Bernie Sanders
Some people live with blinders on that never allow them to see the truth. I am resigned to never being able to change them. But I cannot, in good conscience, pretend they are anything but willing participants in the never ending takeover of 90% of the humans who don’t have the power of $ to get the truth to those who look for info in the world of controlled media.
Thank you for your voice of reason. I will share your voice to all who will listen. I will continue to engage those who still think for themselves. If you attack one force you aid another. We have created too many monsters with our meddling.

Thank you for posting. Praying, as the alternative is despair.
