Our Country, the United States, is a Rogue Nation and Our Leaders are Criminals

• https://thiscantbehappening.net, BY DAVE LINDORFF

Actually, the US became a rogue state four years before my birth in 1949 when, in 1945, Washington decided to bomb two militarily insignificant cities in Japan with its new super weapon, the atomic bomb, instantly incinerating several hundred thousand Japanese civilians, including many, many children, and condemning at least that many more to slow agonizing deaths from resulting cancers and birth defects.

From that war crime we went on to the Korean War where the US used the tactic of saturation bombing on the north — bombing that was so extensive that eventually the waves of B-29 bombers were unable to find any more targets to hit and were having to drop their ordnance loads in the ocean before returning to airports in Japan, where landing planes full of high explosives was considered too risky. The death toll of civilians in the North alone is estimated, over three years of bombing, at 1.5 million, or about 15% of the country's population. Many more civilians were killed by US forces during fighting in the south.
