ALLAN NAIRN, allan.nairn at yahoo.com, http://www.allannairn.com
A noted journalist, Nairn said today: “Bin Laden is dead, but the world is still governed by bin Ladens. … Every day, the U.S., directly with its own forces, or indirectly through its proxy forces, its clients, is killing, at a minimum, dozens of people. I mean, just since Obama came in, in the one limited area of drone strikes in Pakistan, something like 1,900 have been killed just under Obama. And that started decades before 9/11. We have to stop these people, these powerful people like Obama, like Bush, like those who run the Pentagon, who think it’s OK to take civilian life.”
G. SIMON HARAK, Simon at Jesuits.net
A member of the Marquette University Jesuit Community, Harak said today: “I believe that violence breeds violence, and that this killing will not end violence, but begin a new circle of harm and retaliation. Did the killing of Saddam Hussein end the violence in Iraq? … Ezekiel 18:23 states: ‘Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares the Lord GOD, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live?’”
