KILLINGS applauded, Killings censured; KILLERS mourned, Killers condemned

Sniper's weapon

Journalist in Ukraine ponders a Libertarian’s thoughts
Editing by Carolyn Bennett

Caught in maniacal web

America commits violent acts when it chooses, George Green writes today at Pravda Ru, and denounces others when they commit the same acts. Nowhere does this play out more clearly and more tragically than in theater commanded to kill over there and in society where soldiers come home.

Sniper and weapon
erving the American government in no way justified the murder of Chris Kyle,” Green writes. “Yet serving foreign governments is today a justification used by the United States government to murder people ─ even American citizens ─ without due process.” 

Due process contemplates an exercise of the powers of government as the law permits, and sanctions under recognized safeguards for the protection of individual rights.

Sniper soldier Kyle

The most lethal sniper in American military history, Christopher Scott (Chris) Kyle (b. April 8, 1974, d. February 2, 2013) was a United States Navy SEAL, a sniper whose killing statistics reportedly have not been released by the U.S. Department of Defense.  His deadly track record while deployed in Al-Ramādī (central Iraq on the Euphrates River) led insurgents to call him “Shaitan Ar-Ramadi (The Devil of Ramadi).” They put a “$20,000 bounty on his head [later] increased to $80,000.”

he United States government awarded sniper soldier Kyle Bronze and Silver Star medals more than once. U.S. publishers published his autobiography American Sniper. In 2009, Kyle left the U.S. Navy with an honorable discharge. In the United States state of Texas on February 2, 2013, another former soldier killed Kyle.
Lethal subjectivity: 
Killings applauded, Killings censured
Killers mourned, Killers condemned

George Green continues: “While Kyle served his duty honorably, he was in fact a weapon wielded by the United States government, which has continually used people like Kyle to carry out its objectives in open defiance to the rules of war. 

America mourns the slayer they so jubilantly taught to slay at far less than a moment’s notice. 

America promotes a subjective worldview wherein even murdering unsuspecting countrymen is sometimes justified ─ as long as those killed are disliked by the commander-in-chief. 

America lauded the 160 deaths the man they trained to kill caused, and cries for the one death caused by another whom America trained to kill.

Over there
“Two men of the sword died by another of the sword but the weapons were not the guns in their hands. 

“The weapon is an ideology instilled in them by a maniacal government bent on subjective justice that caused one of the three to turn on the rest. 

“…One should deeply consider that had Christopher Kyle’s fellow soldier murdered him [by Presidential decree] he might well have received awards for the killing.”

Over here
Worth pondering

yle “commercialized on the concepts of killing unsuspecting individuals in his book American Sniper,” Green concludes. “He was not killed for his actions serving his country; he was killed by a disturbed fellow soldier.” 

America today “believes people should die for their ideas or actions supporting pretty much anyone the government disagrees with.”

Christopher Kyle, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Kyle


As a practical term, commander-in-chief refers to the military competencies that reside in a nation-state’s executive, Head of State and/or Head of Government. Often, a given country's commander-in-chief need not be or have been a commissioned officer or even a veteran, and it is by this legal statute that civilian control of the military is realized in states where it is constitutionally required. A commander-in-chief is the person exercising supreme command authority of a nation’s military forces or significant element of those forces. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commander-in-chief
