No More

Mass Shootings &

Endless Wars!

      How many more deaths? The United States has been at war for nearly every year of its existence as an independent nation, fighting in 227 years of its 244-year history. This past week marked the 18 anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq on the false pretense of “Weapons of Mass Destruction.” And, despite the lie, the war is still going on. The same with the US war in Afghanistan, nearly 20 years. And don’t forget US bullets and bombs fired in Syria, Libya, and countless other countries where overt and covert US military action is taking place. The US and its allies have dropped 46 bombs per day for 20 years. In addition, there is an endless whipping up of hostility toward China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, etc. to fuel more weapons programs for the US Military – Industrial Complex. Make no mistake: War is Very Profitable Big Business! It is the bedrock of global empire!

      Now in the last week the US has experienced two more mass shootings, one in Atlanta, Georgia, and the other in Boulder, Colorado. 8 people killed in Atlanta, including 6 Asian-American women, and 10 people killed in Boulder. The US is a mass shooting nation: Columbine & Marjory Stoneman Douglas High Schools, Sandy Hook Elementary School, Virginia Tech, El Paso mall, Los Vegas strip, churches, synagogues, on and on. Assault rifles are becoming as common as American apple pie. Racist hate crimes are on the rise too, which goes hand-in-hand with increasing US hostility toward China, North Korea, Iran, etc. Not to mention the ongoing police killings of unarmed Black Americans, and injustice to Kanaka Maoli in their own homeland.
