With all this attention and obsession with Russia’s 🇷🇺 war in Ukraine 🇺🇦 I have a question. What happens the next time the USA 🇺🇸 goes ahead and invades another country again like it invaded Iraq 🇮🇶 in 2003? What happens in the near future is the USA invades Venezuela 🇻🇪 or Iran 🇮🇷 ? After the US failures in both Iraq 🇮🇶 and Afghanistan🇦🇫 and all of America’s condemnation of Russia’s war in Ukraine, how is the US going to justify invading a country like Venezuela and all the destruction and death that comes with it?
Just like what happened in the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the US media did not show the images of the thousands of dead Iraqis as a result of the US Invasion. The US Pentagon itself estimated that over 7,000 Iraqi non-combatants were killed between March 2003-May 2003. An estimated 30,000 Iraqi Military Personal were also killed in the initial invasion according to the Pentagon. CNN, Fox News, and the other US Media did not show the American Public these bloody corpses of Iraqi men, women, and children to the American People. Contrast that with the DAILY images of dead Ukrainians shown to the American public in 2022. If the USA invades Venezuela or Iran or some other country, once again those dead civilians will not be shown on the American Cable News. Angry civilians angry at the US invasion will not be featured. Only people that seem to be supportive of the invasion will be selected by the US media to be shown to the American Public. I want to add that the Iraqis killed in the US bombings of Baghdad and other major Iraqi cities included children, the elderly, pregnant women probably, and even Iraqi Christians unlucky enough to be killed in the bombings. After 13 year of crippling economic sanctions and US bombings of Iraq in 1993, 1996, 1998.
How can the United States expect the rest of the world to support another one of its military invasions and overthrow of a foreign government? How can the US expect favorable reactions? How can it keep condemning Russia’s war? What if Russia 🇷🇺 decides to give lots of military aid to the insurgency that follows agains the US Occupation of another country? How would the US be able to say “Russia stop sending weapons to these people!” after the US kept giving weapons to Ukraine?
Why should I be expected by fellow Christians in America to chant “USA USA USA!” when our country goes to invade some foreign country that likely has no capability to strike back at the US mainland? Pastor and Theologian Charles Spurgeon rejected that mentality. He was appalled many times by what his country England was doing in India in killing people.
Do not count of me to cheer the next US Invasion of (fill in the blank)
