- Before I could continue to the substance
of this piece, it is imperative to define and justify the selection of
the title for this commentary. The most appropriate thing to do is to search
for the meaning of these words in the Merriam-Webster dictionary of the
English language, which defines evil as morally reprehensible, sinful,
and wicked. I will attempt to define one of the words in the definition
of evil, wicked. The Merriam-Webster dictionary of the English language
defines wicked as morally very bad. It is also necessary to define the
word moral. The Merriam-Webster dictionary of the English language defines
moral as, of or relating to principles of right and wrong in behavior.
- 'Evil' is a word that applies to many
individual actions as well as collective actions. The individual action
might be an act with dreadful consequences or a collective action such
as mob anger or national support for some horrific undertaking on the part
of one's government. The application of this word alone does not suffice
to explain the behavior of the majority of the people in America, hence,
another word need to exist to enrich the meaning of the word, evil. Before
I continue, it is also necessary to define the word, 'stupid.'
- Again, according to the Merriam-Webster
dictionary of the English language, 'stupid' is defined as lacking intelligence
or reason. To understand the meaning of this word fully, we have to also
understand the meaning of the words, intelligence and reason. The Merriam-Webster
dictionary of the English language defines intelligence as the ability
to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations. Once again,
Merriam-Webster dictionary of the English language defines reason as the
power of comprehending, inferring, or thinking especially in orderly rational
- Now it is necessary to put these words
together and apply them to the people of this country, or I should say
to the majority of the people of this country. The easiest way to go about
this is to take a sample though crude but nonetheless a sample of the people
and analyze where they fit in this dichotomy of evil and stupid.
- Since I have received a massive amount
of emails from more than 600 hundred people in this country, I would think
it serves as a reasonable sample. I am sure it has a margin of error but
we are not talking about pure scientific methodology. Perhaps it is acceptable
since people contacted me rather than the other way around. This could
reduce the margin of error since one source - www.rense.com
- - served as the reservoir where these
respondents applied and came across my article and photos - Death Made
in America http://www.rense.com/general70/deathmde.htm
- Now, since I have established some parameters
in this discussion, it is time to apply the terminology to the people here.
Lets do another thing, I have to describe the content of the article-Death
Made in America-in order to weigh the substance of the respondents' emails.
- The substance included photographs of
deformed babies caused by uranium munitions used by the US armed forces.
Additional content included accounts of the atrocities committed by the
US forces in Afghanistan. Now the responses I received included abusive
language to my family, my religion, my country and I. All this because
I chose to expose the genocide for which the people of this country are
- The photos are of deformed babies caused
by the US depleted uranium munitions. These munitions are also used in
Iraq and similar cases of deformities have emerged there. In fact, similar
deformities emerged in the offspring of US soldiers returning from Iraq
and Afghanistan. In fact, the callous conduct of the US government in regards
to nuclear weapons and reactors made many conditions permanent here in
- Anyway, even though the photos are truly
horrific, this did not stop overwhelming majority of people sending emails
and made fun of them and said that those children deserved it. Moreover,
large number of respondents suggested that the entire country of Afghanistan
should have been incinerated, how typical of American intelligence.
- When I explained to them that this was
genocide and presented all the relevant evidences, they simply went on
the offensive and kept name-calling followed by threats. Now let me analyze
this conduct within the dichotomy of evil and stupidity. The heartless
behavior of the people of this country appalled and shocked me. When the
attacks on September 11, 2001 occurred, most Americans were screaming,
"why us, we are civilians." Although I believe the Muslims had
nothing to do with that, but for the sake of argument if they did, I wonder
why are these people who make fun of Afghan deformities are even surprised
they were targeted?
- Anyone experiencing the behavior of these
heartless and ignorant people would not be surprised. It is ok to kill
Muslims and turn their babies deformed and their land uninhabitable, but
the minute something happens in the good US of A, it becomes a crime. How
so? Perhaps it is best that you taste the effects of your own medicine?
- When I presented all the evidences, the
respondents would become even more enraged. This is the mark of stupidity.
Since the word 'stupid' is defined as lacking intelligence or reason, it
applies perfectly to many people of this country. They either do not have
intelligence or most likely do not use their brains and common sense and
reason. Hence, the only thing they are good at is to call names and wave
the blood=soaked piece - the flag - at others' face.
- I believe the adjective defining the
people of this country should be evil-stupid since it entails wickedness
coupled by stupidity and ignorance.
- Accounts Of The US Atrocities
- The second aspect of the paper was the
account of crimes committed by the US soldiers in Afghanistan. I gave account
of mass rape, individual rape, gang rape of woman, men, old men and children
by the US soldiers.
- Again, the emails I received were evil
and stupid. The respondents discounted the crimes as insignificant and
said it was ok for their soldiers to have done that. With the exception
of a few decent people, the remaining of the emails told the true nature
of the people of this country, namely how truly evil they are.
- The stupidity exhibited by these respondents
was also evident from their comments. They portrayed American soldiers
as kind and decent people; however, they tend to forget that these soldiers
were the ones that committed all the rapes of women, young boys and men
at Abu-Ghraib prison. The Abu-Ghraib incident is simply a tip of the iceberg.
The American soldiers are known for kidnapping women in Vietnam and raping
them. The American soldiers are known to have used chocolate bars to lure
desperate and hungry European women for oral sex during WWII. Even after
these desperate women performed oral sex, the soldiers would refuse to
give them the chocolate bars they promised. So, American soldiers are known
for abusing desperate and internally displaced refugees in the aftermath
of WWII to Vietnam to Iraq and now in Afghanistan.
- Again, the word evil-stupid fits perfectly
describing many of the people of this country. Their terrible behavior
further supports that they are both evil and stupid. Therefore, the world
evil-stupid is a perfect description of these cattle, these people-want-to-be,
in this country.
- One note - I do, however, appreciate
the kindness of a few of good people who have contacted me. They are the
