The Beat Goes on and the Anger Grows

In this murderous drone bombing, 14 civilians were killed, including a baby and women. Baby killing does not elicit love and compassion from destroyed families; it promotes an intense hatred of the US government.

(JAMESTOWN, RI) - Three events occurred this week explain the ever growing worldwide anger towards the US. The first is the continued murder of innocents by US drones in Afghanistan and Pakistan. ‘There were pieces of my family all over the road,’ said Jan, recalling the deadly Sept. 7 late afternoon incident in an interview with the Los Angeles Times last week.

‘I picked up those pieces from the road and from the truck and wrapped them in a sheet to bury them.

‘Do the American people want to spend their money this way, on drones that kill our women and children?’ he asked.

The second event is the continued crackdown by the Egyptian government on protestors, and the imprisonment of those who fight for democracy, in an attempt to stifle and destroy dissent and democracy. The illegal military government that took over by overthrowing a democratically elected leader, is financially backed and supported by billions of US dollars, and the US once again with a wink and nod, gave tacit approval to an illegal military overthrow of a democratically elected government. While the US public may not be aware, the rest of the world is, and strongly resents the US for its antidemocratic position and hypocrisy of preaching democracy while supporting illegal military dictatorships.

The third was the announcement that Israel will build 3000 more homes in the West Bank. This illegal act of theft condemned by the rest of the world, but is tacitly approved by the US. All international law and courts have ruled this an act of theft. This latest Israeli action is just one of many acts of confiscation which could not occur without the tacit approval of the US government, and its willingness to defy the world by protecting Israel from punishment in the UN and in international courts. While the US public may not be aware, the rest the world certainly is, and resents the wink and nod, and protection by the US government, which allows this theft of homes from innocent people.

The US continues to anger the world with its support of illegal theft of homes, by supporting illegal military dictatorships, and the continued killings of innocents. Maybe the US public is unaware of all this, but the rest of the world is not, and anger grows daily.
