One principal feature about people is that we love action on a matter. In the case of Jesus, they hated him because he was against violence, angry, revenge, hatred and so to get rid of him, they killed him. Someone’s Gonna Die for sure.
It is no different today. With our bombing in Syria, our retaliation against Assad and his use of chemical weapons, America is celebrating. However, often times, the guys that we so easily blast away aren’t even the bad guys, but people forced to carry out orders of a tyrant.
We can see similar situations in North Korea or in Iran. Yes, we know the majority of people there are not anti-American, but are under the influence of undo force. Their motto is a simple one to enforce their mentality. Someone’s Gonna Die.
World War II produced in excess of 70 million deaths. Stalin Killed at least 16 million of his own and China, in the 60s starved over 36 million Chinese to maintain power along party lines.
Can you imagine calls from Americans during WWII to permit Japanese citizens to immigrate to America during the efforts of the war?
How about bringing the refugees to this great country? Okay, that would be several hundred million Russians, don’t forget those in India which would add another billion, the Japanese and Chinese, etc. The list goes on. Sounds silly, doesn’t it.
No, we don’t bring everyone over here. We send money over there and sometimes we send bombs, bullets and American Troops. Either way around. Someone’s gonna die.
I suppose these words appear to make me sound bitter. And yes, I am bitter against the forces of evil that take out so many people. I detest the killing, the starvation and suffering. I hate it all.
And the terrible thing about it is to do nothing is also to invite the bad guys over here. At least in my lifetime, the only reason the bad guys don’t fight us over here is because of our thousands of bombs, guns, and nuclear weapons. All of this leads to the most terrible equation of all and that is in order to have peace, one way or another, Someone’s Gonna Die.
