De­struc­tion our fault

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Re “Re­mem­ber Desert Storm”: I be­lieve all the U.S. wars in Iraq were fought for cor­po­rate em­pire and noth­ing more. They were and are a waste of Amer­i­can trea­sure and lives in pur­suit of cor­po­rate lu­cre.

What a tragedy that this news­pa­per con­tin­ues to ob­fus­cate to the pub­lic about the true na­ture of this and all cur­rent U.S. con­flicts abroad. There’s noth­ing no­ble or up­lift­ing about in­cin­er­at­ing whole fam­i­lies— men, women and chil­dren—to ashes in­side their own homes.

The peo­ple of Iraq have ev­ery rea­son to hate us. We cre­ated ISIS by cre­at­ing a power vac­uum there with our mil­i­tary ac­tions. We have de­stroyed the very cra­dle of civ­i­liza­tion it­self in pur­suit of cor­po­rate lu­cre.

May God have mercy on us. BRAD BAI­LEY
