Here is the video showing a citizens' rally on March 19 that shut down the Army and Navy recruiting stations at 23rd Avenue and South Jackson Street in Seattle. Participants read from the horrific testimonies of servicemen who testified at Winter Soldier Iraq and Afghanistan.

This video starts innocuously enough, but soon moves into savage condemnation of the inhuman, Fascist war machine that once upon a time was a citizen army that protected people, but that has morphed into an alien entity out of the Matrix that has generated a Holocaust in Iraq, and that is driven by sadism, cynicism and racism.

America is in the process of losing its collective soul as this hideous war goes on and on. Once you lose your soul, the demonic steps in to fill the void. It is too late for many soldiers, sailors and marines who have lost theirs and who are suffering egregiously with guilt leading to nightmares, alcoholism, or drug addiction, not to mention those who have killed themselves or, even worse, murdered their loved ones, friends or even strangers back in the States.

But is it too late to salvage the entire country's soul, before too much Karma kicks in and overwhelms us? I don't know. When atrocities first surfaced in the news in Vietnam, Americans were genuinely shocked. But now it seems that much of America is either too numb or callous to care, while a minority even rejoice in the destruction of Iraqi civilians. This is the process of dehumanization. When you dehumanize your victim, you dehumanize yourself. When you don't speak out against atrocities committed in your name, you dehumanize yourself a little more too.
