“Because fascism is a lie, it is condemned to literary sterility. And when it is past, it will have no history, except the bloody history of murder. It is very dangerous to write the truth in war, and the truth is very dangerous to come by.”

– Ernest Hemingway (1898-1961)

To all bloggers who read these words please do all that is humanly possible now to work for peace in the country of Syria and the Middle East. Please use all of your God-given creativity, talent, energy and post as much as possible on the issue of peace. Please suggest to all of your fellow bloggers and readers to work for peace now with the same intensity.

There is no more important work on this Earth at this time but working for truth and peace. Please put aside any other issue for the time being and concentrate solely on bringing the truth about what is occurring in Syria to as many of your brothers and sisters, in all countries, in every region of the world, as you can.

The following videos are illustrative of the reality humanity faces today. The first is Dwight Eisenhower’s farewell address where he prophetically warned his fellow Americans about the rise of the power of the military industrial complex.

The second video gives you a much clearer picture than you will ever get from the mainstream media of what is occurring from a geopolitical standpoint in Syria.

Please spread the truth to as many people in the world as is humanly possible.
