Today in the ‘Divided States of America’ where there is no rule of law, no constitution and what appears to be a country now run by the United Nations, we wage war with no permission or debate from the people or Congress and without ever being attacked by those we wage destruction upon. We now in the USA live under a rotating dictatorship.
With headlines from state run media such as the Huffington Post (3/16/11) that read “Israel Has the Right to Attack Iran’s Nuclear Reactors Now” brings me to the conclusion that these people are on the verge of insanity!
Civilian death counts estimated in hundreds of thousands and some estimates over a million in Afghanistan and Iraq alone, constant drone strafing in Pakistan killing hundreds there. Does anyone but me see the hypocrisy in all this humanitarian, freedom and democracy BS yet? Civilian deaths have risen from fifty% in WWII to 70% in Vietnam to now 90% and even 100% in the siege of Gaza in 2008.
Are there such short memories that some don’t remember the lies that brought us to the quagmire we are already in that is bankrupting our nation morally and financially? For those that don’t remember the lies click here and visit a page I put together years back, I haven’t updated it in some time but it will joggle the memory no doubt.
Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and now Libya, as David Swanson in his excellent report titled (War Is Illegal) wrote-
It’s a simple point, but an important one, and one that gets overlooked. Whether or not you think a particular war is moral and good, the fact remains that war is illegal. Actual defense by a country when attacked is legal, but that only occurs once another country has actually attacked, and it must not be used as a loophole to excuse wider war that is not employed in actual defense.
So now we have yet begun another quagmire on the 8th anniversary of the Iraq invasion, a war on Libya said to stop Gaddafi from using planes and tanks to attack his own people, does anyone really believe this? What would happen here in America if a group of rebels banded together and tried to oust the regime in place today? What about Waco, have we already forgotten the military tanks and aircraft used on the Branch Davidian?
Russian intelligence said “Some of the reports made by western media are not entirely corresponding to the pictures they are getting” and, strafing citizens did not happen, this is a hoax to begin military intervention.
US Defense Secretary Robert Gates said:
“The UN Security Council resolution provides no authorization for the use of armed force; there is no unanimity within NATO for the use of armed force … and we also have to think about, frankly, the use of the US military in another country in the Middle East.”
The first 24 hours we have already fired 114 Tomahawk missiles on Libya at a cost well over five hundred thousand dollars apiece, while we have a supposed ally Japan devastated with three nuclear and plutonium cores melting down that has a possibility of compromising life as we know it on this planet if they China syndrome and hit the water table, and nobody is doing anything to help.
One would think in a sane world every powerful nation would join forces together and get this situation under control (like in the movies) but instead it’s more important to go bomb Libya.
Gaddafi Called western leaders “new Nazis” and said “You can withdraw, you can be beaten and go back to your countries but we cannot retreat, this is our land, and we can only be victorious or die here. You didn’t learn from your mistakes in Iraq. We will be victorious and you, the party of Satan, will be crushed.”
“It’s no longer an internal matter it became a confrontation between the Libyan people and the new Nazis.”
And all this and not hardly a peep from the American people, sure there were a few protest in Washington, California, Chicago and even Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsworth was arrested but it didn’t even amount to a couple thousand.
I hope my fellow Americans understand we are waging war on a fourth country now with no congressional declaration and under the guise of the United Nations. It is now official America has been infiltrated, captured, defeated without a shot fired and is now run by the United Nations and enforced by NATO.
It will be written in the history books that America was defeated by apathy, none of these so called self-styled wars are Americas they are the wars of the ones who have conquered us.
