Letter: On the road to ruin, one political lie at a time
To the editor:
“Germany is rounding up Nazi minions,” said Maclean’s Magazine on January 27, 2014. Germany is spending an enormous amount of time, resources and money to search for and persecute cooks and laundry workers all over the world, as accessory to murder. “Simply being where the killing took place would be enough for a conviction.” Wow.
Yet the liars, like Bush and Blair etc., who are responsible for the devastation of Iraq and the death of about a million Iraqis, and millions more crippled for life and left homeless are raking in millions in speaking fees; and Bush is receiving standing ovations in Canada. There is something seriously wrong with this picture and needs rectification.
Only with justice, honesty and truth can there be a healthy future for humanity, and what’s left of nature.
Stephen Hawking reminds us with these words: “In a world that is in chaos politically, socially and environmentally, how can the human race sustain another 100 years?”
