Where in the World are ‘Morals’?


” “In September 2009, (the hospital) had 170 newborn babies, 24 percent of whom were dead within the first seven days (and) a staggering 75 percent of the dead babies were classified as deformed.” In comparison, their letter stated, in August 2002, before the invasion, 530 babies were born; six of them died within the first week, with a single birth defect reported.

The world leaders are unable to discern between ‘humanitarianism’ and ‘murder’.

The public seem to be having great difficulty likewise.

Like ‘democracy’, dictionary meanings count for nothing, ‘morals’ are strangely associated with acceptability of killing, maiming, right through to genocide. Civilization has been corrupted, as someone said “absolutely”.

When does amorality turn to immorality? How bad must the crime of war reveal itself to be before those who wage it cease and desist, of their own volition or in deference to global outrage?

Where is the public outrage?

My favorite quote was from the British government spokesperson, who assured us: “All ammunition used by UK armed forces falls within international humanitarian law and is consistent with the Geneva Convention.”

Tears come to my eyes as I think about the kindness of coalition bullets, the empathy of coalition bombs — unlike, I’m certain, the ammo used by terrorists, which is cruel, which hates our way of life and wants only to destroy it.

Forgive me the sarcasm. Another study has come out, this one underwritten by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Michigan, linking the U.S.-British war in Iraq with a hideous, heartbreaking and “staggering” increase in birth defects in areas of the country where bombing and heavy fighting occurred.

  1. Commenting on my own question!
    There is no public outrage. Why?
    For one thing, most of the public are not aware of the real situations.
    Why?, because the media does not reveal the truths, or lies about them!
    Why?, because the media is owned and controlled and does not have the public’s welfare at heart.
    Next, of the public who are aware of the situations, most have some misguided trust and faith in their leaders, even when the leaders have proven to be liars, or worse.
    Then, those who are outraged have no vehicle to express their feelings unless they, like me, are a blogger.
    Then, there are those who are aware of claims of adverse situations, but who simply refuse to believe them. In some cases that is because they never had the ability to comprehend them logically, or have lost that ability due to brainwashing.
    So, like the boiling frog, they are happy to slowly “die”, thinking that “all is well:”

    Surely someone wants to argue with me about this?
