Loving “mommies and daddies” whom hug their kids when they get home from work and take them on picnics or to Disneyland will wake up each morning and go to their places of work where they will design and manufacture these weapons of war.
They use those wages to buy cars and fridges and houses. Many of them no doubt , are God fearing Christians and speak of the sanctity of human life. Some might well volunteer their time to work at food banks to distribute food to the poor.
I am reminded of a prominent move star from the 1950s whose name escapes me at the moment. He came home one day after his daughter had seen him acting in a Movie where he played the part of a murderer. His daughter asked why he was killing people and told him she did not like watching him kill people. After that he refused to take the role of a “bad guy” in any film he made.
When people go to work to design these weapons that murder children in far off lands in return for money , they convince themselves they are good parents , and good neighbors and Christians.
They design and manufacture weapons that MURDER children. The method by which these weapons are designed to MURDER other human beings are as heinous as any of those instruments of torture used during the Inquisition to extract confessions in the name of God.
It is not just the weapons manufacturers that must be confronted and challenged. It is also the people that work at those places.

Those pinstriped elected reps of the Working Human, Wage Slaves and all of U.S. toiling to enrich the Profiteers on this Planet of the Neo-Liberal\Neo-CON E-CON’d CLOCK PUNCHERS should be made to wear on their finely tailored suits the corporate logos of the weapons makers their terms in congress are sponsored by. Y’know like Soccer players and professional athletes around the world or race car drivers wear suits plastered with logos of their sponsors. Adam Schiff could with his well-spoken and passionate case for impeachment or increasing the immoral military budgets of Trump’s that he approved again this year be strolling to the televised lecterns with RAYTHEON and BOEING and LOCKHEED MARTIN and GENERAL DYNAMICS snappy aerospace insignias covering every inch of his pinstripe suited professional self…

According to prophesy, there will come a time when the destroyer of nations, will likewise be destroyed, at which time the world will then finally be at rest, and war free.
Isaiah 14:6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth. 7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.
