To the Editor:

A Matter of Perspective


In your “A Matter of Perspective” a couple of weeks ago you stated the following: “Not only are the Russian soldiers shooting the men, women, and children in Ukraine, they are shooting their dogs too. They are looting Ukraine homes and stealing people’s possessions. They are raping the girls – young girls.”

I would like to see independent verification of those alleged atrocities and also verification of the perpetrators of said alleged events.

If you are unable to do so, I will consider your words as hearsay and put them in the category of unsubstantiated propaganda. There are way too many lies being tossed about not only on social media but also our mainstream media concerning this conflict in Ukraine.

Where are the tears for the Iraqi women and children that died as a direct result of sanctions from the USofA?

Or what about the destruction of Libya by the “Western Coalition” which turned that country into a failed state?

Or the Iraqis that lost their lives after our invasion in 2003? Or the Yemenis that have lost their lives in the past eight years because of the intervention of Saudi Arabia with the assistance of the USofA?

I could go on but I’ll leave it at that.

Remember these words: “In war, truth is the first casualty.” Aeschylus (525-456 BC)

It’s still true today.
