Letter: Stand against perpetual oppression

  Email   Print

Still the Republican Presidential contenders are turning to this team of sideshow veterans for their foreign policy advice, the architects of the prearranged wars. Mitt Romney is calling on Cofer Black, the chairman of a firm that is a subsidiary of Blackwater/Worldwide, the same Blackwater whose mercenaries massacred unarmed Iraqi civilians. Then add Robert Kagan and Bill Kristol, two neo-cons with Kristol being one of the founders of Project for the New American Century that promoted full-scale military action on the war-ravaged Iraqi people. Hes also using Walid Phares as an advisor, a Fox News talking head.

And theres Newt Gingrich, the mop-haired caricature undone by petulance and hypocrisy while carrying on an extramarital affair who was not only in favor of the terrorist war on Iraq from the beginning that killed children, seniors, et al., but is now advocating doing the same to Iran as does the purported pious Rick Santorum. Meanwhile Rick Perrys relying on Donald Rumsfeld and Dough Feith who persuaded the Bush administration to make Saddam Husseins weapons of mass destruction the rationale for going to warall intentionally fraudulent.

Inasmuch to witness all the wrongdoing and the innumerable many that fall for no reason is convincing. Enough so that every man make it his business to understand, to do his own thinking and take little traditional wisdom and orthodoxies for granted. Were all victims, but if we remain true to our moral imperatives and rebel against perpetual oppression and injustice while standing up for the dispossessed, poor and weak, even to failwe win.
