Letter: Stop pointing fingers, start fighting injustice

Stop pointing fingers, start fighting injustice

A recent letter writer accuses Republicans of using Benghazi as a “sledgehammer” against Hillary Clinton, citing their support for President George W. Bush in his attack on Iraq after he was given information it had weapons of mass destruction. Really? Are we still pointing the finger of blame at Bush?

Let’s put this weapons of mass destruction in proper perspective. On March 16, 1988, 5,000 Kurds were killed by the use of chemical weapons on the orders of Saddam Hussein. It was a crime against humanity. Saddam and his sons were monsters. Human beings can be weapons of mass destruction! Joseph Stalin was responsible for the deaths of 20 million people, Adolf Hitler for the deaths of 17 million people and Mao Tse-tung for the deaths of 40 million people.

It’s not a matter of Democrats against Republicans, or us against them. It’s a matter of good against evil and recognizing the signs of a possibile worldwide genocide. When we choose to ignore threats to the sanctity of life and allow atrocities to take place, we set the stage of history for another genocide.

This is not a time for division. It is a time to stand together for what is right and just and face any evil against humanity with courage and conviction. Let’s stop pointing fingers and fight against the injustices, prejudices and terrorism that threaten the entire world. Evil can only exist when good people sit back and do nothing!
