Solar Powered LCD lights

Solar Powered LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) Lights

The New VI did a news story about a local firm that sold over a million dollars worth of solar powered LCD lights to the US military to use in the Iraq war. Newsman Erick Thompson told the story cheerily as if this were something VIlanders could be proud of.

It is good that a local firm created an innovative technology. And it is true these lights don’t directly kill anyone, but they do support an immoral war effort.

The whole Iraq war was based on a massive lie that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction poised to threaten the west. The real purpose of the war was simple larceny — to gain control of the second richest oil reserves on the planet.

Supporting this war is nothing to be proud of.
