This is a must read article for everyone living in countries which routinely assassinate people:
I am in the strange position of knowing that I am on the 'Kill List'. I know this because I have been told, and I know…www.independent.co.uk
In the hunger games the rich world only killed a dozen people a year, and gave some tv time to them. The real world ignores the thousands of peoples they routinely assassinate. Good on Reprieve for bringing him to talk to the people trying to kill him, his friends and his family.
I am in England this week because I decided that if Westerners wanted to kill me without bothering to come to speak with me first, perhaps I should come to speak to them instead. I’ll tell my story so that you can judge for yourselves whether I am the kind of person you want to be murdered.
Why do American’s (and their allies) love killing people? Other countries like South Korea, Japan and China manage just fine without having to kill tens of thousands of people every year.
I know the Americans think me an opponent of their drone wars. They are right; I am. Singling out people to assassinate, and killing nine of our innocent children for each person they target, is a crime of unspeakable proportions. Their policy is as foolish as it is criminal, as it radicalises the very people we are trying to calm down.
This week Obama said killing tens of thousands of Libyans and destroying Libya’s everything (water plants, electricity, hospitals etc) and replacing Libya’s government with a bunch of State Department and CIA funded militias and thus throwing the entire region into chaos was the worst mistake of his presidency.
In a plot twist straight out of Hunger Games, Hillary Clinton, the architect of Obama’s ‘worst mistake’ of course considers killing a bunch of brown people one of the biggest accomplishments of her life (with Kissinger as mentor of course one does) and thus it follows that a lot of her fellow American’s want her to be president so she can do some more. Killing that is.
