The Killing Fields of America. Bowe Berghdal - A Social Embarrassment
Hatred and betrayal:
This is a synopsis of how our society destroys innocent lives based on the radicals' flawed logic and their "immoral" "morality".
It fuels their false emboldened sense of their imaginary religious 'duty', that they are to prepossessed to enforce, for their own personal reasons.
Unfortunately it is the "radical minority" that seems to 'rule-the-roost' in our society these days.
We are a society that refuses to grow up. And as a result of this refusal, history is doomed to repeat itself over and over again.
Wallowing in ignorance is neither an acceptable excuse for this behavior by the minority who rule, nor for the palpable silence of the indifferent majority.
Both are equally blameworthy.
The many faces of Hate
- HATRED, The Truth about the Lies. Voting on "EQUAL" rights? A Political Quagmire.
The origins of hatred, bigotry, and intolerance. A product of mankind alone.
Picture it -
1965 in the middle of the Vietnam war era. A prolonged and unmitigated war that destroyed many lives in its wake.
A twenty two year old gentle, kind, and 'gay' young man who was a conscientious objector to the killings of other human beings without any valid reason.
He was drafted into the army to be sent to Vietnam to participate in those "murders of the innocents".
A radical 'sense-of-duty' was lacking in him as well. Fighting to defend the immorality of those who would kill the 'gay men' who served in those days, was a non starter in the motivation to serve at any level of this war.
When this young man refused to pick up a gun he was held captive by the military in a basement filled with coal.
His duty was to shovel coal into the furnace to maintain sufficient fuel to keep the commanders' headquarters, that existed above that basement, at a comfortable temperature.
After being seen by a military psychiatrist to evaluate his "mental status", the psychiatrist reported back to the commanders that the soldier was "gay", so he was to be discharged from the army.
To be locked in the basement to shovel coal was actually the only thing that saved the life of this soldier from being taken by the other enlisted men.
They could only verbally harass and threaten, which they did on a continual basis.
This soldier was not let out of that basement to sleep, or bathe (except for once a week), and his food was brought to him by the commanders who resided above him, lest he be attacked by the other men in this platoon.
This soldier was held prisoner in this basement, by the military, for 75 days before actually being discharged.
The rational was to "punish" him until 89 days passed so he could not be eligible for any military benefits after discharge, that would have been available for anyone who serves in the military in any capacity, for a minimum of 90 days.
The soldier's post traumatic stress disorder was caused by our own military and carried for life.
But It could have been worse. If he had not been locked in that basement for 75 days, he would surely have lost his life at the hands of those tormentors.

picture it -
2009 while the U.S. is engaged in another "Vietnam" type war that never should have been started in the first place.
A young eighteen year old man enlisted on his own to "serve" a country that still despises others simply for being who they are born to be.
The "reasons" for his enlisting are unknown, but also are irrelevant to the fate that befell him while trying to fulfill his misguided sense of loyalty to his country.
He would be sent to Afghanistan with a troop of other "healthy, red blooded, American men" who were taught by their government and their religions that to be "different" in society today was still grounds for murder, ostracism, banishment, and abandonment.
He was subsequently drugged by one, or more, of those radical "comrades in arms" and forced out of camp without any supplies.
After wandering aimlessly in a dazed state he was captured by the Taliban and held captive for the next five years.
To be sure, he never suspected that his greatest enemies were to be his very 'comrades-in-arms'; and that those "comrades" never expected him to survive his banishment.

- White House faces growing fury in Congress over Bowe Bergdahl deal - Los Angeles T
The White House struggled Wednesday to quell a political storm in Congress over the trade of five Taliban leaders for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and to repair relations with Democratic and Republican lawmakers outraged over the lack of consultation.
Five years later:
Picture it -
2014. A U.S. President who saw, and seized, an opportunity to have an imprisoned soldier released from captivity in order to fulfill a government promise to all military soldiers - to never leave one soldier behind after a battle.
This President knew by past displayed behaviors of Congress that any prior knowledge of his intent would have been thwarted by his political enemies that would have led to this soldier being murdered by his captors.
This was certainly not the end of the punitive and vindictive punishment to be inflicted on this young man already beaten down by enduring five years of captivity filled with physical and emotional pain and suffering.
It was to be just the beginning of a new and greater round of attacks on him by his own country for malevolent reasons.

Radicals going too far
- Bowe Bergdahl's father receives death threats: police chief| Reuters
SALMON Idaho (Reuters) - The father of Bowe Bergdahl, the Idaho soldier released from captivity in a controversial prisoner swap with the Taliban, has received emailed death threats that authorities are
The U.S. political hate machine.
Instead of the "freedom" he should have been afforded after 5 years of captivity by the enemies abroad, this soldier is once again being held prisoner by a society of hatred and spite, and used as a pawn for political posturing.
The "radical" right has seized this opportunity to finish destroying this young man for their political gains.
He was certainly seen as low hanging fruit to be plucked from the political tree of hatred by those bent on furthering their own agendas before any other consideration.
He has been charged, tried, and found guilty of desertion, collusion with the enemy, conspiracy, etc...; and sentenced to contunious attacks by the media, the vindictive public haters, and the political fanatics; all without one shred of evidence.
Those "comrades-in-arms" that did this to him are exonerated and lauded as heros by the indifferent rush to judgment by the right wing fanatics who saw an easy target that they hope will destroy the ''Black man" in the "White" house.
Those "comrades-in-arms" are lying through their teeth to cover up what they did to their fellow soldier out of bias and hatred. And the government and political accusations machinery in Washington DC will defend them to the death, while they attempt to destroy the prisoner of war and hopefully the president in the process.
Destroying one insignificant soldier to destroy the president is sanctioned by his enemies as necessary collateral damage in their ongoing war on the white house and its current occupants.
What the Public Media and the Fanatical Right wing is doing to this young man is a barbaric, inexcusable tragedy, and a grossly perverse travesty of justice.
