War Crimes of the “righteous”

This is how Tokyo looked like 70 years ago after “Operation Meetinghouse”. Northern and eastern Tokyo were completely devastated. 100,000 civilians were burned alive. US Gen. Curtis LeMay insisted on low-altitude flights by 335 bombers, no-holds-barred carpet bombing, and loads and loads of napalm.

One thought on “War Crimes of the “righteous””

  1. In dao (daodejing) there is not such thing as daoism. The latter is seen as wrongfully attaching personal identity to what belongs to all. The word daoism is consequently used as a straw dog; venerated in the moment and immediately tossed away as chaff.
    This reason for this is seen in this picture. Christianity Judaism Islam, and racism and other tribalisms as displayed to a somewhat complicated but perhaps lesser degree by the Japanese or the Mongols under Genghis Khan are such monotheisms. Each claims to be the only in order to deny its sectarian nature; to claim to be innocuous; to claim the good. Western society is imbued with this massive lie and the result can be seen in this picture and in too many other places and actions to list here.
    Monotheism by any name is a crime against humanity. It steals for chosen self what is both of all and cannot be other. The same is true most egregiously for the words Democracy, Freedom, Justice, peace, war, and a myriad others in modern US dominated English. The West is led by this USA. It is the Nazi of modern times.
