“A Convergence of Calamities”

Modern warfare, as practiced by the United States, is almost defined by the killing of civilians.

What else can you expect when your favorite method of fighting is aerial bombardment, either with planes or missiles?

American saturation bombing of North Korea killed about one-fifth of the country’s entire population, and that is a Pentagon estimate.

In Vietnam, about another 3 million were added to the toll.

And that wasn’t a million soldiers who died in the invasion of Iraq.

I’m not sure that most Americans even understand, or want to understand, how indescribably brutal the Pentagon’s imperial wars have been.
