9/12

i absolutely hate it that every year on 9/11 americans have to go through the task of reading all the names of the dead. i hate this because all it makes me think about is the names of the dead afghan and iraqi victims (and now pakistani, and by extention palestinian) of american state-sponsored terrorism. only around 3,000 americans died that day. but the day after is when the world really changed, when the american government began planning its terror attacks on this region i now call home. this war on terror, like the war on drugs, the war on cancer, and the war on poverty, spreads terror (just as these previous amorphous wars spread drug usage, cancer, poverty) because it does not deal with the root of the problem. instead it kills more people and makes more people resist (aka “terror” to use american lingo). but i wonder what would happen if we read the names of the dead iraqi and afghan people who have died at the hands of u.s. and so-called “coalition” forces? how many days, weeks, months would it take us? of course, most americans could care less about this. but i decided to honor at least some iraqi victims of u.s.-sponsored terrorism today. here is a list of those iraqis who died only in the year 2008. the number is around 1 million dead iraqis right now. the numbers of afghan dead, i’m not sure about, but you can read the list of more iraqi dead at iraq body count.

One thought on “9/12

  1. Thank you for this. My thoughts yesterday were with everyone who has so needlessly died over this neverending conflict.

    That said, the American media is out of control – I turned on the TV as I was getting dressed yesterday morning and they were actually showing random homes with American flags on their front lawns…and the point of that was….?
