How can there be with wars raging out-of control! Who’s celebrating while mass slaughter and destruction persist?
No Christmas cheer this year for billions. No Feliz Navidad. No happy holiday. No Wise Men spreading good will.
No silent, holy night. No decking the halls. No herald angels singing. None heard on high.
No coming all ye faithful. No telling it on the mountain. No merry gentlemen resting. No peace on earth coming upon a midnight clear.
No most wonderful time of the year. No having yourself a merry little Christmas. No holly jolly one. No wishing you one in times of war, injustice and human suffering. Imagine them on an unprecedented scale.
No frosty the snowman fun. No winter wonderland. No jingle bells joy. No auld lang syne.
No Christmas 2014 to remember. No Santa on his sleigh. None coming to town. No gifts for billions.
No peace with war winds raging. None with growing global human misery. America is Scrooge writ large. It’s the Grinch that stole Christmas.
Scoundrel media editors claim otherwise. They support the worst of all possible worlds. They pretend aggressive wars are liberating ones.
They claim nations are destroyed to free them. They call imperial dominance democracy.
They glorify wars in the name of peace. Humanitarian intervention and responsibility to protect (R2P) mask ravaging one country after another. Mass slaughter and destruction reflect it.
They call plunder economic development. They pretend Christmas 2013 reflects peace and good on earth.
They ignore what matters most. They turn a blind eye to America’s imperial savagery. Unprecedented human misery reflects it.
