Mr. Fish, «

Escreve John Cory no Reader Supported News:

One man decided to set the world on fire. It didn’t take much.

It took 19 men to kill 3,000 people on September 11, 2001.

It took a small lie to invade Afghanistan and one big lie to invade Iraq.

7 and 9 are the numbers of years of war.

6, 806 is the number of soldiers (US and NATO) killed in this endless war.

40,000 is the number of wounded soldiers.

320,000 plus is the estimated number of US troops suffering from PTSD and TBI.

1.3 million is the estimated number of Iraqi civilians who have died. No one knows the real number, but studies point to an average of 200,000 Iraqi deaths per year of war.

10,000 is the best estimate of Afghan civilians killed, so far.

Civilian wounded or maimed numbers are not really tracked, but carry high numeric guesswork, just like the estimated 4 million Iraqi and Afghan refugees who have sought escape from their homelands.

There are invisible and secret numbers before 9/11 and after 9/11 and the harm and sadness of those numbers will never be known in our lifetime, nor admitted to by those who refuse to believe anything prior to 9/11. It is a zero sum argument. […]

9/11 is a number – A sacred number for us, and them, and the world of war.

One man and then another set the world on fire and millions continue to burn.

One or fifty – it wouldn’t take much for –
