No regret” for killing 160 people
No More Truthless Heroes

By Joshua Brollier

February 14, 2013 "Information Clearing House" - On February 11, 2013, the New York Times reported about the funeral of retired Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle, portraying him as a “warrior and family man.” The highly politicized and massive public funeral, held at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, points to the severe moral schizophrenia our nation has internalized. We see ourselves as the shining “city on a hill” and therefore a U.S. citizen who kills people in other lands becomes an unquestionably renowned hero. This must appear offensive and ridiculous to many people living beyond U.S. borders.

Mr. Kyle was a man who professed “no regret” for killing 160 people during his four tours in Iraq. A fellow soldier and former Marine, struggling with PTSD, murdered Kyle at point blank range while they were practice shooting for fun and “therapy” at a gun range in Texas. Despite the bizarrely karmic nature of his death and setting aside the much needed conversation on gun culture and pervasive violence which our nation is being forced to address, I am just as worried by our collective need to construct a fig leaf cover up over the legacy of Chris Kyle.
Glorifying Chris Kyle’s story integrally connects to U.S. media and military efforts to affect public perception of ongoing warfare in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as expanding war on terror policies which the Obama administration is aggressively attempting to institutionalize. Now, the U.S. not only retains the right to attack those whom it dubiously asserted were responsible for 9/11, it regards the entire world as a potential battlefield, dismissing any need for constituent and congressional approval nor any evidence of an attack being plannedagainst the U.S. Though President Obama ran on an anti-war platform, he needs the legacy of Chris Kyle and others as much as any of the previous war criminals from the Bush years to sustain his current militarism.

For example, the same issue of the New York Times reports that President Obama awarded a medal of honor to Clinton Romesha for “defending an outpost” in Afghanistan. Mr. Romesha was wounded in the neck in the course of action. He was also lauded for calling in airstrikes that killed 30 Taliban fighters. As a public, to what degree do we question why Mr. Romesha nearly lost his life?




In addition to the many thousands of Afghan casualties, more than a decade of crushing warfare and billions of dollars per week being spent on the effort, Afghans have been “perishing under one of the highest infant and maternal mortality rates in the world. At least 36% live below the poverty line and 35% of Afghan men do not have work. The UN calls the acute malnutrition of nearly one million children in the Afghan south ‘shocking’. Almost three quarters of all Afghans do not have access to safe drinking water.”

Given these appalling truths, I am not inclined to write off the immense suffering we have caused around the globe as a necessity or reframe it as victory, nor to join in the popular declarations that Mr. Romesha and Mr. Kyle were heroes. I don’t want to demonize them either. They are part of an imperial system to which many in the US are deeply tied and unquestioningly support with tax dollars. Quite possibly Mr. Kyle was a “family man” to his circle and a loyal friend to his comrades. But can we really honor him as such when he was willing to rob Iraqi families of their fathers and sons?

recorded as happening anymore?

And why is it do you suppose that all these amazing miraculous events happened thousands of years ago in ancient times and no longer happen today? Is it because there are to many witnesses with to many of these technological advanced recording devices that it is no longer easy to claim that moons split and seas part without the world requiring definitive visual evidence?
Ans.

01. The magical line is not to abuse by words and gestures the personality of our prophet.

Asking question about his genuineness or any teachings of his, is OK. But you should use civil language.

May be you have no feeling of respect towards him, but more than 1.5 Billion Muslims (and a large number of Non Muslims also) revere him as the Noblest soul that lived on this earth.

So you should care of their feelings and try not to hurt them.

As regards present day Muslims and rulers and kings and dictators, there is no limit as to what words and gestures you use.

You have every right not be believe in the miracles the prophets performed, but try not to ridicule them.

If we are able to do some of these things using our present day machines and technologies, certainly the Creator of This Universe is more Powerful than us to perform these acts.

Comrade, thanks for dusting off the line a wee bit...does this also apply to muslims and their respect of other religions? If so, then why do you disrespect the feelings of christians like tinyearl? Christians revere their mini-god Jesus as the noblest soul that ever walked this planet, what gives you the right to say "Jesus was a human prophet, created by a special miracle of God. He did not become God and never was God.
God does not change forms and come as Jesus, this is Hindu Philosophy of God taking human form."

Are the rules you try to force on others not applicable to you as well?

No regret” for killing 160 people
No More Truthless Heroes
By Joshua Brollier
News you will see or hear on CNN or Vancouver Sun...
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met Wednesday with officials in Oman to discuss their plans to buy a $2.1 billion air defence system from American manufacturer Raytheon.

Kerry met with the Arab country's defence minister, a day after discussions with Oman's sultan.

Kerry thanked them for their decision to buy the ground-based air defence system from the Massachusetts company. "We're very excited about that and very grateful for your confidence in Raytheon," Kerry said.

He also said the U.S. is "grateful for the role that Oman plays in the region as an important force for peace and stability. And we appreciate your contributions to the defensive strategy for the region."

Omani Defence Minister Sayyid Badr al-Busaidi called Raytheon's system the most effective of its kind.

A joint statement issued by the U.S. and Oman said the system "offers high levels of effectiveness, capable of meeting the operational requirements of the Royal Air Force of Oman and providing seamless air protection by virtue of its cutting edge air defence technology." The statement said Oman is still in talks with Raytheon over some technical details.

Meanwhile back in Germany and the EU...
BERLIN - Germany says it supports adding the military wing of the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah to the European Union's list of terrorist groups.

Germany's foreign ministry says the decision follows "discussions we have had with our partners following the terrorist attack in Burgas" on the Bulgarian coast last year that killed five Israelis and a Bulgarian bus driver.

Bulgaria has accused Hezbollah of the attack, a charge the Shiite group denies.

Germany had previously resisted calls to list Hezbollah as a terrorist organization for fear it could destabilize Lebanon.

But the foreign ministry said in a statement Wednesday that Germany's position had changed due to new and clearer information about the Lebanese militant Shiite organization's activities and analysis provided by authorities on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus.

Bush's War will not be over until Bush is out of office. Whosoever follows Bish whether Republican or Democrat can make the appropriate changes to correct Bush mistakes by blaming Bush. He most certainly will be blamed as it will be politically expedient to do so in order to regain World Respect for the USA. Of course, Dems would blame harder since the mirror reflection upon them is not strong in reality.
One thing the new administration should do is drop the "war on terror" terminology. That just incites a erroneous methodology for military solution. What is required in international cooperation and diplomacy. I ho0pe an internationl anti terrorist police force of some kind will be formed.
Thank god, only two more years of this moron.

The more advance we get in technology, we should be more amazed at the way things are working in this Universe for millions of years without needing any of our "advanced technology"!!

A "little knowledge of science and technology turns a man into atheist but a deep and thorough knowledge of science and technology makes him deeply conscious of God's presence" Said a Well Respected Scientist.

Miracles are things which are beyond human powers and miracles are happening every day my millions!!

Every seed germinating and getting its shoot out of ground is indeed a Miracle!!

We see it every day, so we just consider it as a "fact of nature".

But to a True Scientist, it is nothing less than a Miracle. A thing which is beyond his powers. Even after seeing it repeated millions of times!!

You only prove your own ignorance by taking "snipes" at the Creator!!
