"We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye," Rev. Wright said in a sermon on Sept. 16, 2001.
America's chickens are coming home to roost," he told his congregation
"Well, let me try to respond in a non-bombastic way. If you heard the whole sermon, first of all, you heard that I was quoting the ambassador from Iraq. That’s number one. But number two, to quote the Bible, “Be not deceived. God is not mocked. For whatsoever you sow, that you also shall reap.” Jesus said, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”You cannot do terrorism on other people and expect it never to come back on you. Those are biblical principles, not Jeremiah Wright bombastic, divisive principles."
He is right! Her cruel and unjust wars against others:
Hiroshima and Nagasaki: In August, 1945, the U.S. obliterated these two Japanese cities, killing between 120,000 and 140,000 people. History has revealed much that contradicts the rationale originally given for the first and only use of nuclear weapons against civilian populations. Eisenhower confirmed this in his memoirs, stating that weeks before Hiroshima, the Japanese had been seeking a way to surrender: "It wasn't necessary to hit them with that awful thing."
Vietnam: While American forces suffered the loss of 58,000 lives and 365,000 wounded, South Vietnamese military losses exceeded 1 million, and North Vietnamese losses ranged between 500,000 and 1 million. U.S. bombing in Vietnam was four times greater than the combined U.S.-British bombing of Germany in World War II. targets horrified the rest of the world!
Iraq: Cutting through the official hyperbole and noble verbiage about freedom and democracy in the Middle Eastern .Mossbacher said, "Of course it's about petroleum. Crass or not, it's oil that keeps everybody going." Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark estimates that the Gulf War killed over 150,000 Iraqi civilians, including at least 100,000 post-war deaths in the first Gulf war and now it is thought that over 1,000,000 have been killed!
