The Best and Least Known Killing Spree

This week we lost one of the best lawyers and activists the United States has known, Michael Ratner, on the same day on which Bob Marley had died years before. It was Michael Ratner who told us who killed Che Guevara. This led me to make this little list:

1955 John Wayne

1960 Ernest Hemingway

1961 Paul Robeson

1963 John Kennedy

1965 Malcolm X

1967 Che Guevara

1968 Martin Luther King Jr.

1968 Robert Kennedy

1976 Bob Marley

(Never give up?) Fidel Castro

2015 Beau Biden

What does this list have in common? These are all people whom I hope some of you know of and who quite likely died of the same disease: U.S. militarism (except Fidel, but not for lack of trying).

But perhaps I don’t have to try such bizarre approaches anymore to get anyone to care about mass murder. Donald “kill their families” Trump admitted this week that U.S. wars are one-sided slaughters, that the U.S. government kills millions of people, and that the U.S. government lies about it.

Perhaps someone else on television will say that again. Perhaps reporters will report on it.

Ha. Ha. Just kidding. Back in reality, click on a few of the famous names above and see if that moves you.
