A Nation without a Conscience

We are a nation without a conscience, and that friends, is a frightening thing. Far more frightening than any terrorist group could ever be to this nation. Recently I discussed with a friend, the folly of our 23 year war on Iraq. I cited the example of the US imposing the most brutal sanctions in the history of the world on an innocent people. Nothing was allowed into their country, and as the sanctions took their deadly toll the rest of the world pleaded with us to remove them, but to no avail.

Children and the elderly were the hardest hit by the sanctions, as the sick and the infirmed always suffer most in cases like this. In a 1996 famous interview on 60 Minutes, Lesley Stahl asked then Secretary of State Madeline Albright a powerful question. “We have heard that half a million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?” Without blinking Ms. Albright answered, “Yes we think it is worth it.”

Tackling the climate catastrophe strategically

(TASMANIA) If you like to ask or beg your oppressor to go easy on you, then you do not need to read this article. And if you like to do what makes you feel good at the time, irrespective of its strategic impact, then this article is not for you either. My interest in tackling violence, in whatever form it takes, has always been to take action myself that leaves the perpetrator powerless (but, hopefully, a convert too). I also like to be strategic so that the impact of my action is long-lasting (in fact, preferably permanent) and structurally reduces the violence in our world. Here’s how I work.

Help feed the stricken population of Gaza

(SALEM)  Livestock were decimated by the most recent Israeli war on Gaza; meat is in short supply, and you have a chance to help get much-needed meat to the families of the landlocked Gaza Strip.  The effort is the subject of a fundraiser currently underway (http://www.gofundme.com/we-are-gaza) that, if successful, will feed many people.

Palestine boyThe de jure borders of former non-member observer states such as the State of Palestine which joined the United Nations were also put on the World Map before obtaining full membership. This was the case if we look at Germany, Switzerland, Vietnam, and so forth.

(LONDON)  The issue of “statehood” of Palestine was settled in September of 2012 when the United Nations General Assembly by an overwhelming 2/3rd status with U.N. General Assembly Resolution 67/19.
