@MicahZenko @democratise_lab sadly, this evidently doesn’t count the US bombs sold to other countries and then dropped on other countries… (http://twitter.com/LauriLoveX/status/817133885960179713?s=17)

U.S. sells white phosphorus bombs to Saudi Arabia, who, in turn, use them on Yemeni children. Here’s your tax dollars at work, America. https://t.co/lB3hEmMhgQ (http://twitter.com/cjwerleman/status/833866024416006144?s=17)

David Harris on war:
26 min –
4\ the war
i still can’t say those words w/o a tremor.. goes right to the place in my chest where my outrage lives
this was not a question of policy.. this was a crime who’s enormity was stunning.. a struggle over the very soul of the us.. pitting us.. a bunch of 19-22 yr olds.. who didn’t know any better.. against the most powerful institution in the world.. the us govt.. and ..that we struggled w/them.. was heroic
27 min – this war started w a lie.. was pursued w colossal arrogance.. in violation of everything the us was supposed to stand for .. from day 1 to day 4850.. it was a violation of all the precedents that had been set at the nuremburg war crimes trials.. every one of them.. there was torture.. carpet bombing.. forcible relocation of civilian populations.. chemical weapons.. concentration camps.. pillage as a matter of policy/strategy.. generating millions upon millions of refugees.. defending a govt that had no claim to existence other than american fiat.. and none of us would have accepted for 15 seconds.. when it ended.. 2 million people.. were dead.. for no good reason.. this is not something anybody gets to forget… there is no good side to it..

the war you don’t see (found on John’s site):
46 min – during ww1 – 10% of deaths were civilian, ww2 – 50%, nam – 70%, iraq – 90% – the killing of civilians and wilfully causing great suffering is a war crime – fourth geneva convention – 1949
