Ismaaiyl Brinsley killed two police officers, he claims over the death of a child with a toy gun

The internet and press is full of so called backlash over the protests due to Ismaayl Brinsley assassinating a black and a Hispanic police officer.

I have a fear similar to to the fears I had when Charles Manson tried to create mayhem. Charles Manson. Manson’s goal was Helter Skelter to leave the world in ruins. (It is too late to edit the title, Brinkley’s enpheses was in his home town of NY City).

Al Qaeda in disguise killed Prime Minister Rafik Hariri of Lebanon knowing Hezbollah would be blamed    ,

Almost a million died from the tit for tat blood bath that followed.

If anyone remembers the Iraqi Congress in Exile made up fake stories and Saddam’s nukes and other weapons of mass destruction to get the US to overthrow him, leading to endless carnage,


Please remember that Tom Fox a Quaker peace maker went to Iraq to declare peace but was held hostage instead,


Suicidal maniacs who want mayhem as far as I am concerned are on the same side the side of mayhem.

In the song “Where have all the flowers gone I keep thinking back to the lines “When will they ever learn”

I'm retired in Philadelphia. Non religious but there seems to be a life force that I see as more personal than is usually expressed.

I was raised a Quaker (common with Christian Jewish intermarriage back them) But my father was a total pacifist and during World War II, at the time that being so was difficult.

Upbringing included father trying not to get physical, yet still defend us kids from my harsh stepmother until she got her citizenship papers, after which they could get divorced. Been involved in peace issues since the anti-fallout shelter protests through Vietnam and Iraq.

I wrote "Greedy Little Squirrels and Lifeboat ethics,” 1977, when the Moonies were coming to America and got heavily harassed by them. I also think bin Laden is extremely dangerous like the leader of a barroom brawl, who has been manipulating this country into using the US to get Muslims angry enough to join his suicidal permanent war group. Before 9/11 young Muslims rebelled by wearing by covering their hair a little less than expected and at least winking at each other, now he changed rebellion into being militancy. The Northern Alliance would have been legitimately in charge long ago had he not baited the US into entering Afghanistan.

Obama is making a mistake in my mind with how to stop bin Laden’s dream of permanent war in a divided world but less of a mistake than most anyone else would. If due to currency collapses from out ever more expensive weapons the US stops fighting al Qaeda, then other counties will. If it ends up being Iran, the Sunni Shiite divide will be enormous. Al Qaeda is already convinced that the atheist China is a serious enemy, and the Russians have fought for brutally and inadvertently convinced far more Muslims than the US did that they considered Islam itself to be the enemy.

I never stopped supporting Jimmy Carter when everyone turned on him and I support Obama as well, but think he will have to use a lot more persuasion and less force if they aren’t going to succeed at bankrupting us. However Obama has tried less force and al Qaeda has started to respond in kind trying to limit the victim’s in the way of their primary attacks.
