Who’s to Blame?

By Jeff Harris - January 09, 2020 at 09:33AM


Recently I witnessed a tragic story broadcast on Fox news. A former US soldier who’d been disfigured in a roadside bomb blast was sharing photos of other soldiers like himself who had died or been severely wounded by similar explosions of Improvised Explosive Devices (IED’s).

He was making the case that President Trumps execution of Iranian General Soleimani was justified because he allegedly was responsible for promoting the use of IED’s in Iraq. This story is tragic on multiple levels. This soldier will bear the physical scars of combat for the rest of his life as will many of his comrades. Other soldiers lost their lives leaving wives, children, parents and other loved ones behind.

While this soldiers anger against General Soleimani is understandable the question is why was he and thousands of his comrades placed in harms way thousands of miles from the United States? We now know he was sent there based on multiple lies told by numerous U.S. government officials, including the President of the United States.

So the question is who should this soldier be angry at for a life of disability and disfigurement? The US officials who knowingly lied to place him in needless danger or General Soleimani who was doing his duty to resist the invasion of a foreign force?

Suppose the Chinese invaded the US to spread Communism? The people of the United States would rise up to resist the foreign invader and use every means at their disposal, including IED’s, to kick the invaders out of the country.

Is there any wonder that other people naturally rise up to resist an invading foreign force?

No it’s not, that’s human nature.

The desire to protect home and hearth is deep in the human soul. So when psychopaths lie to facilitate needless war those maimed for life based on their lies should hold them accountable. Not the people who rose up to defend their homes and families from a foreign invader.
