Somewhere on this beautiful planet, America’s Psychopath military drops one bomb every 12 minutes or 121 Bombs Every Day and no one gives a damn.
These aren’t harmless firecrackers, they are terrifying, life destroying, mutilating instruments of war. While people in the West sleep, eat, make love and shield their eyes on a sunny day, someone’s home, family, life and body are being blown into a thousand pieces in America’s name and no one cares? What sort of mindless, heartless creatures are you that allow this to happen???
Once every 12 minutes.
The United States military drops an explosive device with a strength you can hardly comprehend once every 12 minutes. And that’s odd, because they’re technically at war with—let me think—anyone.
So that should mean zero bombs are being dropped, right?
Unfortunately we live in the Golden Age of Psychopaths, where the Pentagon is completely and utterly out of control.
In a cavalier disregard of decency, the pentagon has lost $21 trillion (that’s not a typo) from its multi-billion budget, it’s another example of gross mismanagement of public money that people willingly let happen.
To gain some perspective on these numbers, if you earn $40,000 a year, it would take you 25 million years to make $1 trillion and you are still a long way from $21 trillion..
President George W. Bush’s military dropped 70,000 bombs on five countries. From that outrageous number, only 57 of those bombs upset the international community.
Because there were 57 strikes in Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen—countries the U.S. was neither at war with nor had ongoing conflicts with. And the world was mildly horrified. There was a lot of talk that went something like, “Wait a second. We’re bombing in countries outside of war zones? Is it possible that’s a slippery slope ending in us just bombing all the goddamn time? (Awkward pause.) … Surely not. Whichever president follows Bush will be a normal adult person (with a functional brain stem of some sort) and will therefore stop this madness.” WRONG again.
The Bureau of Investigative Journalism reported that under President Barack Obama there were “563 strikes, largely by drones, that targeted Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen. …”
Bombing outside of a war zone is a horrific violation of international law, global norms and human lore. It’s also the morally reprehensible targeting of people for pre-crime, which is what we’re doing and what the Tom Cruise movie “Minority Report” warned us about. There was a media blackout while Obama was president. You could count on one hand the number of mainstream media reports on the Pentagon’s daily bombing campaigns under Obama. And even when the media did mention it, the underlying sentiment was, “Yeah, but look at how suave Obama is while he’s OK’ing endless destruction. He’s like the Steve McQueen of aerial death.”
Let’s wipe away the idea that “advanced weaponry” hits only the bad guys. As David DeGraw put it, “According to the C.I.A.’s own documents, the people on the ‘kill list,’ who were targeted for ‘death-by-drone,’ accounted for only 2% of the deaths caused by the drone strikes.”
Two percent. Really, Psychopath Pentagon? You got a two on the test? You get five points just for spelling your name right.
But those 70,000 bombs dropped by Bush—it was child’s play. DeGraw again:
“[Obama] dropped 100,000 bombs in seven countries. He out-bombed Bush by 30,000 bombs and 2 countries.”
That’s horrific. That puts Obama in a very elite group of Nobel Peace Prize winners who have killed that many innocent civilians. The reunions are mainly just him and Henry Kissinger wearing little hand-drawn name tags and munching on deviled eggs.
However, we now know that Donald Trump’s administration puts all previous presidents to shame. The Pentagon’s numbers show that during George W. Bush’s eight years he averaged 24 bombs dropped per day, which is 8,750 per year. Over the course of Obama’s time in office, his military dropped 34 bombs per day, 12,500 per year. And in Trump’s first year in office, he averaged 121 bombs dropped per day, for an annual total of 44,096.
Trump’s military dropped 44,000 bombs in his first year in office.
He has basically taken the gloves off the Pentagon and taken the leash off an already rabid dog.
And which is more outrageous—the crazy amount of death and destruction the US are creating around the world, or the fact that your muzzled mainstream corporate media basically NEVER investigates it? They talk about Trump’s flaws. They say he’s a racist, bulbous-headed, self-centered idiot (which is totally accurate) – but they don’t criticize the perpetual Amityville massacre the US military perpetrates by dropping a bomb every 12 minutes, most of them killing 98 percent non-targets.
When you have a Department of War with a completely unaccountable budget—as we saw with the $21 trillion—and you have a president with no interest in overseeing how much death the Department of War is responsible for, then you end up dropping so many bombs that the Pentagon has reported they are running out of bombs.
Shockingly, more than 80 percent of those killed have never even been identified and the C.I.A.’s own documents have shown that they are not even aware of who they are killing—avoiding the issue of reporting civilian deaths simply by naming all those in the strike zone as ‘enemy combatants.’
This is not about Trump, even though he’s a maniac.
It’s not about Obama, even though he’s a war criminal.
It’s not about Bush, even though he has the intelligence of boiled cabbage.
This is about YOU refusing to acknowledge the power of heartless Psychopaths in control and letting them get away with murder, looting and total control (again and again and again and again). Do you seriously believe bombing innocent people is a way to establishing good relations?
