Remember Agent Orange from the days of the Viet Nam war? Well these Vietnamese people will never forget.

One day, we will control the climate and this will never happen again either.

Seems a better way to detox from drug use that expensive US of A hospitals

Health Care in Haiti after the quake.

Haiti 6 months after the quake.  Never again, on this world will the response to a disaster be so poor. OITC offered way more money than the rest of world, and the rest of the world didn't deliver.

Early images after Haiti Quake. GRAPHIC.  Understand this will repeat itself in the coming disasters.  And the US of A may have considerable discomfort also from Hurricane Earl along the east coast, it may be moving closer to the coastline than expected.

7 Years in Afghanistan. American perspective, not Afghanistan perspective. Remember that troops from US of A and other countries went there to steal the opium, which the Taliban were getting rid of, and the Oil Pipeline which the "evil Taliban" gave to Argentina.  Plus we wanted the mineral resources too.  I think the Russians also did, and this war that started long before 2001 was to kick russia out so the west could have the resources. Never forget that American soldiers are used not for the defense of our country, but as manpower to steal the assets of other countries for the corporations of this world.

The story continues in 137 more images here over 7 years in Afghanistan.  Includes protest images in the US of A, which sadly just stopped.   I don't know why, fear? Lack of care?  Everything just stopped and Americans appear to sit deaf, dumb, and blind to it all for the most part.

And so the above story of War, and I haven't even gotten to Iraq yet,  it is time to put in these lyrics from Peter Seeger, sung in the days after previous wars, and yes, we have yet to learn.  Man continues to bury man so flowers can grow and the cycle repeats.  We have come NOWHERE!

WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE
Pete Seeger- Sanga Music Inc -BMI
Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?
Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?
Where have all the flowers gone?
Young girls have picked them everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the young girls gone, long time passing?
Where have all the young girls gone, long time ago?
Where have all the young girls gone?
Gone for husbands everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the husbands gone, long time passing?
Where have all the husbands gone, long time ago?
Where have all the husbands gone?
Gone for soldiers everyone
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the soldiers gone, long time passing?
Where have all the soldiers gone, long time ago?
Where have all the soldiers gone?
Gone to graveyards, everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the graveyards gone, long time passing?
Where have all the graveyards gone, long time ago?
Where have all the graveyards gone?
Gone to flowers, everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?
Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?
Where have all the flowers gone?
Young girls have picked them everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Fixing? Afghanistan! Well the write up to these pics stinks.  We are destroying there, any benefits to these people are not going to be modernization.  The lies continue, but at least we see a little of Afghanistan here.

Drug Addicts in the old Russian Cultural Center in Afghanistan. Well, the Taliban were getting rid of the poppy fields and farming FOOD instead, and so we had to go in and get those poppies back in production, so we can have more drug addicts in the world, like this. I have NO idea if the Afghan people benefited from the Russian presence or not.

OK, Last collection on Afghanistan, examples of daily life.

Well, ONE more on Afghanistan, I thought these were about kids in prison in the US until I opened the link.  But that's another topic, isn't it? All the young folks in the US of A in trouble because we don't make healthy minded kids, who are the future of our country, a top priority.

And then there was Ossetia two years ago. And the Denver Post sadly tells the lie about it.  It was about OUR war against Russia.

The recent flooding in Pakistan.  A world in change at the "end times."

The Flooding in Nashville, in May this year.  And if the dam nearby should fail, which it may, these are "nice" pics.  Failure of that dam in poor repair, will bury Nashville under 20 feet of water.  Americans prefer to support war, than spend money on our really bad infrastructures around this country.

WW 2, the Pacific Front.  NEVER AGAIN.  I don't feel like posting more images of WW 2 tonight, this is getting depressing. I will leave out the european collections if they exist on this site, as I don't want to personally revisit that area of my last incarnation.  I died in Dachau.  I have had enough memory dreams of that to last a lifetime.

We can't forget VietNam and the slaughter of "commies." These weren't commies, and I have NEVER fully figured out WHY we got into this one.  Except to again, take oil and natural gas resources.  At least the American people pushed to get out of this one.  We can't seem to do that now, with our current wars.  This is a move downhill for my countries people.  I remain disgusted as I can get nowhere with folks on the topic of our current wars.  There is no outrage.  Maybe part of that is because we got the big, the bad, and the ugly on our TV's during the Viet Nam war, more so than now.  I don't know. Seems like de evolution going on to me.  Religion wasn't in the way with the Viet Nam war, like it is now.  Christians want these wars in the middle east to bring Christ back.  I am so SICK of THAT.

Well I am tired of the war stuff.  Here's an interesting collection of life in American Cities from 1864 to 1950.

http://blogs.denverpost.com/captured/2010/07/22/from-the-archive-american-cities-pre-1950/2360/

 

Well, this collection would not be complete without these satellite images of our planet.  Some areas shortly to be re arranged!

Well I have been at this for a couple hours or so, and so it's time to close the day, with some happier pictures from around the globe from this summer.  Life should be more like this for everyone!
