Remember the Kent State massacre?
Four students were killed and Nine were wounded when Ohio National guardsmen, fearing for their lives from unarmed students, fired 67 shots in 13 seconds. Most of the students hit were in the Prentise Hall parking lot 300 to 400 feet away and were not protesters.
Ten days later, the Jackson State massacre took two lives and left twelve wounded when, thinking there were snipers in the dorms, 75 Jackson Police units and the Mississippi state police opened fire on the crowd.
On both occasions, American students were killed and wounded for protesting the U.S. invasion of Cambodia by the Hawks. Some even claim that Kent was the start of the Right Wing Coalition Party.
In college, I had many friends who were from Iran to study in the U.S.. They wanted the cruel and corrupt CIA installed government of the Shah to be replaced by the Ayatollah. They got their wish.
This past week, metaphorically, these Iranians friends started shooting their children for protesting an election that had a greater turn out than there are citizens in Iran.
Right winged governments all over the world have the same mentality. If you are not with us, you are against us. These governments will kill their own citizens to protect their beliefs and power.
When will these leaders learn that eventually, either the people will win or the nation will collapse as history validates.
It has been 40 years since the Kent State massacre, give the Iranians time to work this out for them selves without the U.S. trying to meddle.
WTF! It is only a matter of time and deaths.
