"I will say this to Code Pink, WAMM, or any other peaceniks who constantly protest this country anytime there is a conflict which we were justified to enter - shut up! Until you also protest the killing of the world's babies, I don't want to hear a peep out of you."
War is a terrible thing. Soldiers die. Some are badly wounded. Civilians die. Some are badly wounded. Countries are destroyed. Some never recover. Even though we have tried to make war as sanitary and surgical as possible, there is still collateral damage. And the bottom line of war is still to do two things - kill people and break things.
The human toll of war is nothing less than staggering. Here are some numbers of recent wars:
Conflict Killed Worldwide
World War I 37,000,000
World War II 85,000,000
Korean War 5,000,000
Viet Nam War 2,000,000
Gulf Wars 22,000
Afghanistan War 31,000
Wow! Almost 130M humans killed by other humans just because of war! That is a big chunk of the world's population, just wasted due to man's inability to peacefully resolve conflicts.
Now, let's also throw in all the people who die due to violence from guns worldwide. That is a huge number. Approximately 250,000 in 2016. Just for the sake of math, let's also assume that number has been the same for each year over the past 100 years. All of a sudden, that number becomes 22,500,000. Almost as many who died in World War I.
Why bring this up? What is the point of being reminded of all this carnage? Because one war is still waging. This war makes the other wars look like Sunday School picnics. I am talking about the war on the unborn. Even though I have addressed this issue before, this time I will use worldwide numbers instead of only domestic ones. Are you ready? Get buckled up for this one.
According to the US Abortion Clock.org, since 1980, over 1,500,000,000 innocent lives have been snuffed out. Aborted and gone, forever. That is over 20% of the world's population. That is worse than the most virulent pandemic in world history. And here is the saddest part. This is not history. It continues right now. As I am penning this article.
I am not pro-war. In fact, I think the killing of any human by another human is obscene. In particular, I am highly offended by the killing of babies, born or unborn. I will say this to Code Pink, WAMM, or any other peaceniks who constantly protest this country anytime there is a conflict which we were justified to enter - shut up! Until you also protest the killing of the world's babies, I don't want to hear a peep out of you.
And one more thing. This is for the BLM crowd. Since all black lives matter, the 20,000,000 innocent black babies which have been aborted in this country since 1973, should matter also.
Abortion is not the only face of war, but it is part of it. If you are not too squeamish, try watching the movie Unplanned. Especially, when they show a real abortion. Gruesome? Absolutely. It earned the move an "R" rating, just for that scene alone.
Want to stop war? Then let's start by stopping the killing at home. First and foremost, the killing of innocent unborn babies. Then the war zones some of our larger cities have turned into. How to do it? Step one, is a step most of us know. Return to God. Become a Godly nation once again. The rest will then fall into place.
