Americans like to think of themselves as a peace-loving nation, but the figures speak otherwise. The truth is the U.S. is addicted to war. The U.S. is a garrison state, the world’s leading arms merchant and gun runner, instigator of violent conflict. The U.S. is not who it pretends to be – a peace-loving beacon of freedom and democracy. It is a global empire that believes it has the right to conduct regime changes wherever it wants around the world (Hawaii included) and to take other nations resources at will. This is why many people around the world hate the U.S. A 2014 Gallup poll taken among 66,000 people in 65 nations revealed the USA is considered to be the greatest threat to peace. (HUFFINGTON POST – 2014) Americans, please look in the mirror. The U.S. created ISIS. The U.S. has killed more than 20 million people in 37 nations since WWII.
Killing more people will not solve the problem of killing and hate.
Peace on Earth Good Will to All!
1. Mourn all victims of violence. 2. Reject war as a solution. 3. Defend civil liberties.
4. Oppose all discrimination, anti-Islamic, anti-Semitic, anti-Hawaiian, etc.
5. Seek peace through justice in Hawai`i and around the world.
