In virtually every home of every American there are at least two (usually more) TV sets. These units portray death scenes many times every day. In the case of "games" the sets portray death scenes 24/7/365. The American news generally restricts the death scenes to a few hours each day. However in every case of these death portrayals; real and imagined, the killing is accompanied by feelings of euphoria. It is an experience honoured and celebrated either by actual medals of honour or achievements of the next "level" in a childish "game".

Every one of these killing events is accompanied by bigger armaments, massive shell magazines and cries of anguish. Men and women sit in control rooms operating drones overseas (now even on their own turf) hovering above and spying on the inhabitants below. Without any reservations, just like the Play Stations and Xboxes, they can and do kill thousands upon thousands. Some who are killed are guilty of a potential crime yet most are not, but there is no court room, no Judge or Jury, no reasons are given, just death met.

With great outrage and horror the relatives of the twenty dead babies in Connecticut, along with many Americans, scream out at gun owners and the NRA. It appears those in Connect i cut (like most Americans) cannot connect the dots.

How many mothers and fathers; how many people across the globe have cried out in anguish over the actions of the American Government and the American Military?

From the days following the death of the peace seeking JFK (John Kennedy); with George Bush senior as the head of the CIA to his Vice Presidency then his Presidency and then to his sons Presidency, and now Obama, the American state has been a poisonous ruin of pollution, death and destruction. Everyone knows this everywhere. Most Americans are relatively blind. They think they should be admired for their wanton careless disregard for humanity and civility.

If I lived in America I would be buying up every shell and the largest magazines I could find. If I could find and afford missile and grenade launchers I would stockpile them too.

Until my government stopped killing others across the globe for glib reasons and outrageous, always proven to be false, accusations, I would have to find weapons to protect my family and neighbours from their soulless behaviour. We must ask ourselves, if they can kill others with such callous disregard, why do we feel special? What makes us exempt from their pathological obsession to kill any and everything that stands in their way?

Yes, it is a crime to see twenty beautiful young children die. But it happens under the careful eye of a drone in many Mesopotamian communities on an almost daily basis.

Even the women and children killed by those fighting on the opposite side of the Americans are killing with weaponry primarily supplied by the American arms industry. They are the largest supplier of arms; bar none, to the world.

And then one must ask where the raw resources, the metals and powders come from to manufacture the armaments. Turns out, even my own neck of the woods is in part responsible. The smelter in Kitimat producing aluminum was originally designed specifically for the manufacture of war planes. Today one can be certain aluminum is used in many arms. Maybe not from our plant, but if not, ours is making up for the shortfall required for peaceful uses.

The Americans even supplied the chemicals to make the nerve gas Iraq was claimed to have had. It is how they knew they had it, they sold it to them. Likely the same is true for Syria. Syria used to be friendly for rendition purposes.

The American population can stand in shock and outrage but this is simply the sign of cognitive dissonance. They cannot seem to understand they are reaping what they sow. And that is just what Cognitive dissonance means; cutting the connection to logic and reason.

The Arms Industry is America. It is everything they thrive on. They play "games" killing anything that moves. If they haven't got an enemy to kill, then they invent one. Even magical creations like "Zombies". Kill Kill Kill. Without this their economy would fail more drastically than it is failing today.

Americans might be the most ignorant Nation the planet has ever endured. Even during the height of the Soviet Union Communist Empire every Russian knew their media was controlled by their government. So did everyone else across the globe. Today a clear majority of the American population believe their media is independent. This while everyone else across the globe is well aware of it being nothing but American Government propaganda. Seems even the Ruskies are smarter then the Americans.

Don't get me wrong, Canadians are no different. In fact in my home Province of British Columbia, we have the highest concentration of media ownership on the globe. Pure 100% bullshit, 100% of the time. Most residents of BC do not even know their new drivers licences have Radio Frequency chips embedded in them. The main media doesn't talk about it. Even the politicians running in the last election in my area didn't know it until we pointed it out to them.

The issue is death. Twenty dead children. Innocents. We support it. No matter how it comes and from which direction, it is our very own industries, our comfortable lifestyles, our personal pacifism and our disinterest in those who run our democracies that allow it. Sit on the couch, flick away at the remote, play the "Games" and we are complicit in the Connecticut crime. (Connect da dot crime).
