Profiteering in death

I won’t publish a photo of the effects of our selling weapons to Saudi or supporting Israel upon men, women, children and families.

Is the pic of planes more acceptable than the bodies of babies with their lungs ripped apart by bombs designed to set your organs on fire? Or 6yr olds with stumps for limbs? 10yr olds bled out from head injuries, 12 year olds weighing less than a two yr old in the UK due to malnutrition and starvation, with disease and poisoning thrown in. 16yr olds decapitated, 18yr olds burnt to death by phosphorous. That is reality in Yemen and Palestine tonight, yesterday and tomorrow.
I won’t post a pic of these as may offend your sensibility, so will paint the effects of any war, especially a one sided genocide as Yemen or Palestine with my words as my canvas.

You can close your eyes and see that father mourning the deaths of his wife, children and parents, whilst sitting covered in dust amid the rubble which is all that remains of his family home.

The mother cradling her dead baby as if it were still able to suckle from her wasted dried up and cracked teet, the lack of milk no longer a matter to the no longer living infant.

A family dog tearing at the flesh of its dead owner in desperation and hunger.

I could go on all night but never truly come close to the truly unimaginable horrors the victims of Saudi, of Israel, of the US & of yes us, the people of the UK, who allow our government to collude with those states engaged in genocide, to supply them arms, included weapons we are not supposed to use due to them being internationally outlawed, and to train and support their military, even in other regions invading their lands ourselves in the US alleged ‘war on terror’.

So as you sip you coffee tonight think of those dying in the name of greed, of power, of religion, of discrimination. Picture their faces, and remember we own their fate.

I am in my 50's (ok 51), I have life challenges but still continue to be a father, a biker, a socialist and a human being. I fight hate and injustice in any way I can. I am me.
