The Democratic party in the House has voted to force the US to retreat from Iraq and abandon the Iraqi people to the killers of Iran, Al Qaeda, and the Baath party.
The last time Dems staged such a retreat, they killed up to 3,500,000 people and if they pull this one off they’ll kill at least as many. That makes them democides.
Their retreat was from Vietnam caused three mass slaughters.
The killing fields:
The Killing Fields were a number of sites in Cambodia where large numbers of people were killed and buried by the Khmer Rouge regime which ruled the country, as Democratic Kampuchea, from 1975 to 1979. Estimates of the number of dead range from 1.5 to 3 million out of a population of around 7 million….
The executed were buried in mass graves. In order to save ammunition, executions were often done using hammers, axe handles, spades or sharpened bamboo sticks.
In Vietnam, the new communist government sent many people who supported the old government in the South to “re-education camps”, and others to “new economic zones.” An estimated 1 million people were imprisoned without formal charges or trials.
165,000 people died in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam’s re-education camps, according to published academic studies in the United States and Europe.
Thousands were abused or tortured: their hands and legs shackled in painful positions for months, their skin slashed by bamboo canes studded with thorns, their veins injected with poisonous chemicals, their spirits broken with stories about relatives being killed…
The boat people:
More than one million people became refugees. Many perished, and others, upon reaching other Southeast Asian countries, discovered they could not remain permanently…
It was estimated that up to 25% of those who left Vietnam have perished in the stormy seas. Thousands have died when their boats were robbed repeatedly then sank by Thai pirates. Many women and young girls were raped then murdered or sold to brothels in Thailand.
That Democratic retreat caused between 2,000,000 and 3,500,000 dead, and the Baathists, Iranians, and Al Qaeda will run up at least the same score in Iraq if the US abandons it.
Such mass slaughter is – appropriately – known as Democide.
