To The Iraqis, We Are The Terrorists
By James Donahue
A gory but interesting statistic fell out of today's war news. The number of American servicemen
and women killed in the Irarq War totaled 2,978 as of this morning. That is five more than the number of people killed in
the 9-11 attacks on American soil.
The total number of servicemen and women killed in the two wars launched by President Bush
in Iraq and Afghanistan since we declared our War On Terror following 9-11 today hit 3336, an interesting number from an esoteric
It seems that we have not bothered to count the number of fighters and innocent men, women
and children killed in the two wars. We have called it collateral damage . . . a polite way of sweeping our crimes under a
rug and thinking of them as a necessary cost of war.
Actually neither war was necessary. The people in Afghanistan and Iraq did nothing to deserve
the rain of bombs, missiles and bullets that have terrorized their homeland, destroyed their homes and shopping communities
and completely disrupted their lives. The enemy is not a country. It is and has always been an ideology shared by bands of
rebels with a plan to bring down America by attacking our economy.
Because our nation is being run by fools with no understanding of just who the enemy is,
or how to deal with it, we have turned to conventional warfare when what is needed is spiritual knowledge and direction.
The Christian controlled government and Pentagon perceives psychic functioning as "the
devil's work" and chose not to seek counsel from someone like Psychic and Prophet Aaron C. Donahue, who might have stopped
this nonsense in its tracks.
Instead, Mr. Bush chose to send the Army, the Marines, the Navy and the Air Force for an
all-out assault on Afghanistan. That attack took months to organize, invaded an entire country, and cost thousands of innocent
lives without bringing results. While the Taliban were driven out of power in Afghanistan and a puppet government established,
Osama bin Laden remains at large to this day.
By 2003 Mr. Bush was shifting his efforts for an attack on Iraq and Saddam Hussein, who
had nothing to do with 9-11. He says he is liberating the Middle East and bringing democracy to the area. What he is doing
is murdering thousands of innocent people and creating new hot beds of terrorism that will haunt us for many years to come.
While the number of American soldiers killed in Iraq now quickly approaches 3,000, new
statistics released by researchers from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health say the number of deaths among Iraqis
has now soared to about 100,000!
"Making conservative assumptions, we think that about 100,000 excess deaths, or more have
happened since the 2003 invasion of Iraq" reads a report published online by The Lancet medical journal. The official government
count hovers at about 16,000, with military fatalities at about 6,300.
Think of this. When we were attacked on 9-11 we were outraged at the loss of less than
3,000 people. Many of these were people from other nations at work in the Pentagon and the Twin Towers.
What would we say if we were attacked by an invading army, our land contaminated by bombs
and bullets laced with depleted uranium, and over 100,000 of our citizens killed in the name of liberating us from the government
we have enjoyed for over 200 years?
Would we not perceive this invasion as terrorism? Would we not fight back in any way we
could think of, with whatever weapon we can find? Indeed, we would.
Why do we find it so hard to understand why the Iraqis are turning on us?
