PLEASE REMEMBER The My Lai
On the 16-March-1968 a detatchment of US troops under the direct command of Lt. William Calley entered the village of My Lai and slaughtered and raped old women, children, and entire families.
Some 500 civilians were slaughtered.
The USA took no meaningful action against the 18 men charged and the 19th. Lt. Calley received little more than a tokenry punishment.
Do note that not one of the senior officers in the line of command EVER stood trial for this obscene action of cowardice and brutality.
John Kerry as a young man responded to the Senate Enquiry and claimed it was The USA at fault and no one man should be held responsible for a faulty syste:
Many years later that same John Kerry as a Senator voted for the corrupt and unlawfull invasion and brutal massacres of Iraq under the same irresponsible gung ho code.
Is this what is meant by power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely?
Please take a moment and think of those wretched civilians slaughtered in My Lai 43 years ago today.
Then take a moment to consider the slaughter in the same cause of forcing people to practice some obscene concept to suit old men in Government – forcing them in Iraq and Afghanistan to adopt a given model of democracy or be shot or tortured if the resist.

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit of their own agenda and greed, have done more damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.
The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain more than the armies of Hitler and the Franco – German – Italian axis of 1939 – 1945.
