I agree.  The psychological terror they inflict on these souls is reprehensible.  I was wondering if there were any internet groups supporting this people?

maiming, death and destruction casued in wars and sacrificing of healthy
young men and women for the sake of "world peace", "national security",
"democrary", "freedom", "emancipation of women" etc. Also when we look at
people (even theosophists) who organize treatments/therapies for those
coming back from war with mental problems, these are the same people who say
not a word about the war itself which is the root cause of all these
suffering. This reminds me of the comments of Ted Turner, the guy who
started CNN said before the war -- it is the dumbest thing to do and he
repeated it even recently.
