Thank You


Here is an email I received in response to one of my essays.

Thank You : Melissa Riter : honeybeemel1969@yahoo.com : 2008-05-26

I want to thank you for telling the truth and being brave enough to show these pictures. I’m an American and have been against the war in Iraq from the day the US invaded.

God bless!

Melissa

It does take some bravery since many American hawks have threatened to kill me for showing those photos and for pointing out that the American soldiers fighting in Iraq are war criminals, no different from the Nazis hanged at Nuremberg charged with aiding and abetting an aggressive war. I got very used to receiving death threats back in the early 1970’s when I was working on gay lib. Back then, I received about 300 abusive phone calls and 3 death threats a day, so protesting the Afghanistan and Iraq wars did not take any special courage in comparison. People really don’t like it when I interfere with their sadistic pleasures or their rationalisations for their cruelty.
