Six Live Cremations the West Wants You to Ignore - Washington's Blog

Six Live Cremations the West Wants You to Ignore - Washington's Blog

Western selective outrage has always included burning people alive. Acting exactly as any sane criminal would, Western criminals want you to let them get away with their crimes while they broadcast the often lesser atrocities of others as pretexts for continuing and escalating their own.

Taking heart, this is exactly what ISIS has just done.

ISIS today released a video of themselves burning a captured Jordanian soldier alive in an enclosure, saying the act was intended as retaliation for US bombings, which also burn people alive, making the execution an “eye for an eye” punishment, according to ISIS. The US, in turn, will now purport to be disgusted by and retaliate against this crime, furthering the downward spiral it put into overdrive with the 2003 illegal invasion of Iraq, which led to and allowed for the creation and empowerment of ISIS and other such groups.

US and Western selective outrage say this latest crime is another illustration of ISIS’s viciousness, which of course it is. However, that is less than half of the story. The limited focus is intended to have us ignore or, better, support and defend, examples of much worse US and Western viciousness, including innumerable cases of burning people to death.

First of all, it is correct that explosives cremate, dismember, and torture people to death in a cruel and unusual manner. Here is an example of what US explosives do to people. But let’s leave aside plain old explosives and take a brief look at six live mass cremations the West would like us to forget.

1) Odessa massacre

2) Israel’s burning of children and other civilians with white phosphorus

3) US use of white phosphorus and napalm against human targets in Iraq

4) US also doused people with napalm in Japan, Korea, Vietnam, and elsewhere

5) US firebombing of Tokyo

6) The foundation of the United States
