Nary a word from Dr. Xenakis

Nary a word from Dr. Xenakis about holding our criminal leaders accountable for injuries and deaths caused by their illegal invasions/occupations. "Unfortunate human nature" that they've been turned into killing machines for the war profiteers. "War is messy," This is not war, and they were not "defending the country" for anyone except our criminal oligarchy. Both invasions and other attacks are offensive acts of war, not "unfortunate human nature," and not "defending the country."
I'll bet it would give thousands of veterans healing closure to see war profiteers like the Shrub and his Dick, as well as Obomba, marched off to prison for their war crimes. But Pelosi said, "Impeachment is off the table," and Obushma said, "It's time to look forward (to drone wars), not backward (at war crimes). We're coming up on a decade of war in Iraq. Corporate troops still have boots on the ground by the tens of thousands. Afghanistan is miserable failure as well. It's time to bring all the troops home and stop the hemorrhage of deaths and injuries to ALL. We're responsible for the deaths of over a million innocent people in the last decade. Gravely injured veterans are just a part of the national chickens coming home to roost in the next decade.
