…like people in Nazi Germany…

Chris Floyd writes that persons targeted and killed with US drones:

“are most often blown to pieces in domestic homes, along with family members, friends and, often, neighbors who live nearby. ”

“This is what we are now. Future generations will look back on us in horror.  …  They will look at us just as we look at the people in Nazi Germany.”  Read the full article here

Germans I knew while living in France in my youth taxed their parents and grandparents for allowing the Nazis to come to power and their atrocities to take place.  I do not want to be like those Germans.  I have, however, not been able to make even the tiniest impact on US atrocities.  I do participate when I can in protests of US wars and torture, I have this blog.  It just seems to me that too few of us are engaged.  I often wonder what difference it would make if millions of us showed up on the street for protests instead of the small numbers who do, if millions of us appeared on the steps of the White House or of the Capitol.  In my youth, large numbers of protestors over time did appear to made a difference.

For what it is worth, I am on the record as opposed to all US wars and torture.  I will continue to do what I can to stop them.

IS THERE ANYTHING TO MEMORIALIZE ABOUT THE UNITED STATES?
