They Died In Vain

Hello Elizabeth,

I think it speaks for itself. The Rev. John Hagee, Hillary Clinton, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and the others do all the speaking that is necessary.

I'm glad you saw my post about the Norwegian terrorist. Here are a few more articles:

DURING THE WAR IN VIETNAM, protest flourished, not in some small part because Richard Nixon had assumed ownership of Lyndon Johnson's war and the Democrats saw an opportunity to take power back from the Republicans, while they pretended for the next forty years that LBJ had never existed — yet much of the protest about the war and about civil rights was sincere. The media came alive as never before. Sadly, after Watergate, the State soon figured out how to stuff the genie back into its bottle and regain control of the hearts and minds of Americans and Canadians, the only hearts and minds that really matter to thems what owns us.

Fortunately, back then the so-called Department of Defence (specifically, DARPA) also invented the Internet and it has taken over where the media of the sixties left off. The State hasn't figured out how to shut down the internet yet. They are working on it. Meanwhile, the State has to learn to live with people like Ray McGovern.

Ray McGovern works with Tell the Word, the publishing arm of the ecumenical Church of the Saviour in inner-city Washington. In the Sixties he served as an infantry/intelligence officer and then became a CIA analyst for the next 27 years. He is on the Steering Group of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS). They Died In Vain:

For those who don't know much about what our heroes have been doing in Iraq and Afghanistan and other places (almost everyone), here are a few of my own articles:

Christians do not have a very good record of following the teachings of Jesus, I am afraid. This is not something new, either. Jesus said that what he taught was not easy to understand so he tried to make His lessons clear with parables. I think His message is pretty obvious, but what do I know? During our service I pray for our troops to return home safely to their loved ones and for our "leaders" to be enlightened: They who send troops to far off places to kill people who have never so much as thrown a stone at us. I pray for them: for our victims who have been dispossessed, starved, orphaned and slaughtered. I may not know much, but I know right from wrong.

Helping refugees is worthwhile. I'm glad to hear our parish has undertaken helping two Iraqi refugees (a woman and her grown-up daughter) who are now living in a camp in Syria. One can look at Palestine to learn how long refugees can live in camps. Of course, the best way to help people is to avoid turning them into refugees in the first place. The mind boggles when it is confronted with what we do and what we have done. Perhaps that is why we don't look and why we don't want to know. I have just been reviewing Japan, August 1945, on this the 66th anniversary of The Great Victory of '45.

"There is something really wrong going on here…" Judgement is coming: It is time to get right with the Lord, so get busy.

Hello Morley

My Fellow American is a film project in the United States devoted to recognizing that Muslims are our neighbors. I am reaching out to you because you addressed the recent events in Oslo, Norway, on Morley Evans and I am hoping you will share this message of tolerance with your readers. We’ve put together a 2 minute film that I believe you will be interested in sharing, watching, and discussing:

I would love it if you could post or tweet about this and share the video. If you can, please let me know. I am here if you have any questions. Thank you so much.
