American Acts of Homicide

This photo illustrates what Reverend Jeremiah Wright was rallying against in his "controversial" sermons. Barack Obama's former (?) pastor was denouncing the atomic bombings at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Here are Reverend Wright's exact words:

"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... and now we are indignant, because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought back into our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost."

Now imagine that you are the relative of of those innocent civilians who was murdered in that photo from Hiroshima. Knowing full well all of the other acts of homicide by the United States government would you not expect some form of retaliation on U.S. soil? To think that 9/11 occurred out of the blue and unexpectedly is to have your head up your ass.

Honestly, we need to stop this madness, we need to end these wars and acts of violence and just live in peace with one another. "Be the change" you wish to see in the world. Stop participating in homicide and keep your family from participating also. Hiroshima-esqe tragedies are occurring today in Iraq and the blood is all over our hands.
