US Violence Abroad Begets Violence at Home — Intolerant, uncivil, drug-addled, alcoholic society — CIA and Pentagon have killed 20-30 million since 1947!

U.S. VIOLENCE ABROAD BEGETS VIOLENCE AT HOME

by Jacob G. Hornberger
… Here is the critical question: If the Pentagon and the CIA are killing masses of people abroad, will that have an adverse effect on people here at home?The standard answer is no. …the mindset has been that as long as the death and destruction is “over there” ….The U.S. media has played its part in all this by declining to display photographs of dead bodies and body parts that are the result of U.S. shootings, bombings, or missile attacks. …

I maintain the opposite. I hold that the massive U.S. violence abroad is triggering violent behavior in people here at home, especially those operating at the margins, mentally speaking. See, for example, my article Charlottesville and America’s Death Machine.

…I maintain, based simply on common sense and human nature, that all the massive death and destruction that the Pentagon and the CIA wreak abroad inevitably seeps into the minds of the American people. The result is an increasingly intolerant, uncivil, drug-addled, alcoholic society and, even worse, one that triggers irrational violent behavior in people who are mentally operating at the margin.

…the number of people that the Pentagon and the CIA have killed, especially if we go back to 1947, when the U.S. government was converted into a national-security state to oppose its WWII partner and ally the Soviet Union in the Cold War. According to an article entitled “Deaths in Other Nations Since WWII Due to US Interventions” published in 2007 on a website called countercurrents.org, the U.S. government has actually killed some 20 million foreigners. That is definitely not a small number. …

Is it really possible that the U.S. government can kill millions of people without it having and adverse effect on the mental stability of the American people? Is it really possible for Americans to continue living normal lives, mentally speaking, while their government is out killing millions of people on a regular basis? I don’t think so. : The U.S. government’s mass violence abroad is the root cause of the horrible irrational violence that afflicts American society. And as long as the killing over there continues, so will the irrational violence here at home, along with more acts of incivility, intolerance, and other dysfunctional behavior.

The ‘Forgotten’ Fourth Verse of the National Anthem: “Conquer we must, WHEN OUR CAUSE IS JUST”

Real historian, James Perloff has demonstrated that most, if not all of our wars have been unnecessary, false flags, immoral and reverse-Christian, even including the Revolutionary War and the “good war,” WWII.

Then there are the USA’s covert wars: overthrows, regime changes and destructions of dozens of nations through the CIA.

Our causes have not been just, when we’ve conquered.

And most Americans don’t care, led by Fox News (the war channel), CNN, MSNBC, Rush Limbaugh, the *Savage* Nation, movie stars, comedians….

…many will sing the familiar first stanza of Francis Scott Key’s 1814 lyrics, which we know as the National Anthem. But few are familiar with the fourth stanza, which is a part of the official lyrics, as adopted by President Herbert Hoover in 1931. The stirring lines read as follows:

O thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation.
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the Heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Very interesting!

Steven Crowder, comedian and political commentator, takes the pro-life side.

Atheist, philosopher Stefan Molyneux takes the pro-choice side; though, I think he is mostly pro-life. Here, he is role-playing.

(video) Soros Igniting Race War Using Communists + The Truth About the Civil War

I like Jake’s videos and take on things. He’s a southerner, so this is especially interesting. Actually seeing the toppling of the stature while the rioters cheer was pretty heart wrenching for me; even though, I’m a northerner, and still don’t understand the real reasons for the Civil War.

I hadn’t before heard before that participating US military personal could be charged for war crimes in Syria. That’s huge — the personal responsibility factor! Servicemen aren’t off the hook because they’re “only following orders.”
