Where is Global Justice?

July 29, 2011

To the Editor,

It is most unlikely that Anders Behring Breivik of Norway dreamed and planned this mass murder all by himself. However, it evolved due to the culmination of his depraved, right-wing extremist neo-conservative views. Apparently these had caused him to eventually become devoid of any segment of love for other human beings. It led to his belief that his skillful use and love of guns would provide an example for change.

It is obvious that his hate and actions were mainly directed towards Muslims, Marxists and Labour. These were outlined in detail in his 1500-page manifesto.

It was on July 22nd on the island of Ayoto, a short distance from the mainland of Norway, that Anders Breivik shot to death 68 young people, and wounded others. He was dressed in a stolen police uniform. The youth gathered there were sponsored by the Labour party of Norway. Before going to the island, Breivik had apparently placed a powerful bomb near the office of the president of Norway, who was not in his office on that fateful day. The explosion did massive damage as well as killing eight people in the building.

History reminds us that weapons--even weapons of mass destruction--have been used by people who were perceived to be more or less normal.

I'm struggling to understand the difference between the cowardly actions
of Anders Breivik versus the Commander-in Chief of the greatest military power on Earth in recent times. This was a man, who with the planning of his military advisers in the Pentagon, initiated the 2003 "Shock and Awe" illegal war against Iraq. Thousands of bombs were dropped on the city of Bagdad, doing colossal damage to buildings and infrastructure. Thousands of innocent Iraqi people were killed or wounded. This is euphemistically referred to as "collateral damage"!

Anders Behring Breivik is in solitary confinement in a prison in Norway. The Commander-in-Chief of the 2003 war is, I presume, comfortably retired on his ranch in Texas.

When will the citizens of our planet Earth, including Canadians, stand up and voice our demand for a world of Peace and Justice for all?
