about wars


4out of 5

by Ron Townsend on August 20, 2008

In the first world war mustard gas and other gases of mass destruction were used. In world
war two an atom bomb was used twice, a holocaust killed 12 million people and
Japanese internment camps held people against their will. In the Korean war brain
washing was used against POWs. In the Vietnam war agent orange was used to kill plants but later caused cancers. In Bosnia, ethnic cleansing was used. These examples
don't make prisoner abuse acceptable but they suggest that every war has bad things
happening. Just because we have to protect our citizens the social contract sometimes
must be invoked. I don't believe that the present administration meant for the abuse to
happen. And we still have the write to speak out like Kennedy did.
