what gives a country the right to mercilessly bomb another?
a simple formula.
make sure the most powerful country in the world is behind you. having a genocide in your past helps. make sure the fundamentalists in the most powerful country believe that their scriptures sanction your existence and any action without censure to ensure your existence.
a basic recipe.
the ancient prophets of the country in question warned that unless justice was pursued that their own God would punish them. He did. what’s he going to do now?
one of those prophets said, ‘…you who kill prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing…’
are the prophets silent today? or is it more difficult to hear them through melange of soundbites and ‘news’reports?
