Friends, my dictionary defines a holocaust as: great destruction or loss of life. Over the last fifty years the number of well-documented holocausts in the world has been staggering.
Let me list some of the major Holocausts that have taken place in my lifetime: who can forget the Vietnam War and the massive carpet bombing where unknown numbers died; what about Uganda with the butcher Idi Amin? Then there was Cambodia with Pol Pot where two million are said to have died and Yugoslavia with Milosovic where mass graves are still being uncovered.
Currently we have Darfur in Sudan where competing, hate-filled racial tribes and militias chop off limbs and rape women and girls for fun. Then there's Iraq and Afghanistan with those Christians Bush and Howard where the casualties (said to be over a million) are largely unknown and, because of depleted uranium, are likely to be much greater.
Let us not forget the Palestinian Territories under the tender care of the Israelis where a calculated, grinding genocide has been going on for forty years. And, of course, a multitude of smaller holocausts have not occupied the headline-seeking MSM! They have passed largely unnoticed but if you add up the combined casualties they would be staggering!
Iran it seems sits on the top of the Potential Holocaust List. Could it provide the next excitement on our television screens or will it be Korea or Syria? Or all three? With nukes, the sky is the limit, the destruction and horror infinite!
Yes, folks, roll up, roll up. The odds are that, humans being what they are, there will be yet another holocaust appearing near you in the not too distant future whether you want it or not!
They're a dime a dozen!
