America Needs To Get Rid Of Its Corrupt Government Leaders To End Terrorism

It amazes me how Americans always seem to look at these terror attacks without much or any context.  As horrific, shocking and wrong as the ISIL attacks in Paris were, or the nearly unknown attack in Beirut the day before, or in Baghdad the day before that, one should surely realize that this isn't happening in a vacuum. 

There is a cause and effect at play. Ask yourself, what motivates the terrorists to kill so indiscriminately and brutally knowing it will mean their own death in doing so? How could anyone become motivated to hate so much? Hint, it's not because of jealousy over our freedoms. But the prevalent reaction from most westerners seems to be, "We are just sitting here minding our own business, why would anyone have a reason to attack or want to kill us?" 

A good place to start is with the fact that America has been killing and bombing people all over the middle east for over a decade pretty much non stop. 

The truth is our so called political leaders in our name or their proxies have been killing and bombing lots of innocent people in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, and Gaza, to mention only a few places, for years. The U.S. and it despotic allies from religious hate spreading Saudi Arabia, or our war profiteering and mongering Zionist allies in Israel have been blowing up people, in fact whole families, and their relatives for as long as one wishes to go back in recent history.

Over 1 million civilians were killed during the illegal U.S. invasion of Iraq alone. So if it's going to be a 'tit for tat' you can easily see the terrorists have a ways to go to catch up, using this brand of revenge killing sprees and terror attacks.  I recommend you look at bombs as seeds; you drop them on people and more terrorists always seem to sprout up.

What would you feel like if it were your family member, or child, or relative who turned out to be the one being vaporized by a US smart bomb or drone? Talk about the brutality of beheading. What do you think happens to people when you drop high tech bombs on a house? The collateral destruction caused by these smart weapons is unimaginable for most Americans.

More importantly the question must be asked. Would it make you want to take revenge for what you see as a grave injustice or even murder?

I'm not advocating revenge as acceptable ever. I’m just asking the question. Are the lives of the people who happened to be born or live in the Middle East less valuable than yours? Add to this the US and it's allies destruction through war of what once represented civil society or and economy in these countries. There is no plausible way now that remains to make a living or feed, and house your family. You find yourself living in fear, in a hopeless war torn country led by incompetent US installed sectarian puppet leaders or some authoritarian despot.

You experience only, fear, hate, war, hopelessness and more brutality as a way of daily life.

The innocent people killed or injured in Paris, Beirut or Baghdad are only the latest to reap this whirlwind. Americans needs to realize that there is a direct cause and effect and there will be blow back to our propensity as a nation to try and bomb anyone that the Neocons, the Security State or Obama, disagrees with or thinks needs to be extra judicially kill that given day, in an undeclared war.  

Not much is likely to change until Americans find a way to rid themselves of the military industrial complex driven war profiteers and war making lobbies that now directly control the U.S. government. 

Peace comes through diplomacy, empathy, love, and a desire to truly help people, no matter what their circumstances.  Not through militarism, war making, jingoism and hate.
