War Speak

Updated on September 6, 2013

Always question what the government tells you


is manipulation of words to control the masses

Wars are a terrible thing, most sane and fair minded people would think so. The most recent wars and the wars planned for the near future are based on greed.
Some time after the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq several new terms came about and new sayings are spoken and used often, far to often in my mind.
The one term that is really annoying me is the term “Suspected Taliban”.
The times we hear it is when the U.S. military kills people and then they say that they killed “Suspected Taliban”. SInce when is it ok to kill a person or people who are merely suspected of something? When did it become OK to kill without question? Does this mean that any person can kill another just because they say that they are suspected of something. I suppose it must be, because the US suspects that Assad used chemical weapons (No evidence given) and they want to attack his country, even though there is much more evidence the Rebels (who by the way are backed by AlQaeda) have detonated chemical weapons.
And since when is it a crime to be Taliban? Since when is every Taliban an enemy? Being Taliban is being a member and a follower of a belief.
Where do we draw the line, will the U.S. government some day kill someone for being a suspected Christian or a suspected Conservative or Liberal?
Many Taliban have never harmed anyone, so why are they killed?
This idiocy by the Obama regime is utterly inhumane. Why do they get away with killing so many people time and time again, merely because they say that they suspect them of being Taliban? This is without a doubt a human rights violation, Another human rights violation of many that the U.S. government has done. Kill the people and then say they are suspected of something, and of-course there is no evidence left to prove them guilty or innocent. The drones make sure of that.
According to the U.S. governments laws and interpretation of what tyranny is, or what a dictator is, or what evil is, the United States government is a evil tyrannical regime and dictatorship guilty of many crimes and human rights violations.
The Syria issue however, is bringing to light these facts and many nations see the Obama regime for what it is. A government hell bent on killing and destruction.
Thank God for strong leaders like President Putin and all others who are standing up for truth and humanity.

      How this man remains president is a big question to me. Why republicans by now don't have enough on him to impeach him is a mystery to me. There is something they all know and are not sharing. Just what I have no idea. He is tearing our country apart and everyone by now must see that. Look at his brother in bed with terrorists and his claims that terrorism is beat while it blows up around our ears and still people defend him. He is a born and raised Islamic Muslim and Communist and who can deny that? Those are the people who parented him, no?

      This whole push for war by the obama regime is questionable. There is no evidence that Assad used the chemical weapons, just speculation. SOme people are beginning to question that maybe it was the USA who sent the weapons or maybe deployed them to start a war. There are fear to many questions, not enough answers. But I do agree that no one should use such weapons. I also do want the truth to come out, and not attack without evidence. Speculation is never an excuse to start a war. Again, like many people, we all ask why is obama in such a hurry to start another war?

      Strong case. I wish I knew the lines to draw. Let me go out back and kick things for a bit. I do not want death to anyone. Let me chew hard on this. It is well put forth ---- and I do not like the current results. Thank you for testing our thoughts.

      I am a Christian, a devout follower of Christ and of Jewish decent. I also have a family member who is a Imam.

      I learned some things from him, and have been corrected by him. The western media, politicians etc have twisted things. Jihad means struggle, a jihadist is one who struggles. This can also be war or personal struggle.

      Taliban is a belief system, or people of a belief. Usually more extreme form of Islam.

      We must remember, there are people who claim to be Christians but are a cult. We also have some that are extreme, like in many religions or faiths, beliefs. Some cause much harm while others keep to themselves and do no harm.

      I have a problem when a government paints everyone with the same brush. The biggest issue I have (like I said in this blog) is that the USA kills people and says they killed "Suspected" taliban, extremists, militants etc. If people are merely suspected of something, then why kill them and destroy any evidence..either proving them guilty or proving them innocent.

      This is a big problem for me. What if roles were reversed, if a country were to do the same to americans? would they be ok with it because they were suspected of something?

      I just wonder about this. To me, this is a human rights violation, a CRIME.

      Somebody set me straight but I understood:

      1. Taliban is not a religion or faith but a fighting principle like back in the crusades

      2. Jihadist is a warrior - soldier

      And both are sworn enemies of any somewhat Christian or Jewish nation. I understand that death to others is a sworn concept. (I am not saying Muslim or Islam - I am being specific)

      Am I wrong in these understandings?
