Another Fort Carson soldier in the news again for crimes being committed

--- Gosh 'our troops' out at Fort Carson have trouble staying out of the news! The soldier in trouble this time is named Aaron Gregory Lucas. See Carson GI held on child luring, sexual assault charges (November 11, 2012)..... Where does the Pentagon get these guys? Will this guy try to claim that he is suffering from PTSD? And on another note, at last they, The Pentagon, are getting to the 'trial' for Sergeant Bales!

Who are these Fort Carson soldiers? The really ugly side of many of the US troops stationed in Colorado Springs…

The following letter appeared today online in what is really most often the daily Colorado Springs local military propaganda sheet called The Gazette. We reprint it here because it underlines the rather common type of thugs that the Pentagon has stationed in our city out at Fort Carson, and quite often turned into major league thugs as they were used by the Pentagon to occuppy foreign countries with. SORRY, but we cannot attribute their behaviors as merely being due to PTSD, which many of them try to hide their personal AND GROUP misbehaviors behind. Here following is the letter from former Gazette reporter, David Philipps... 32251

Ex Colorado Springs Gazette reporter has a new book out about the Fort Carson ‘Lethal Warriors’ unit soldiers

'Overseas in Iraq for several months, these (Lethal Warrior' unit) soldiers were exposed to the same dangerous scenarios on a regular basis. So much, Philipps said, that the soldiers never knew who the enemy was and would shoot random citizens and place guns on them to legitimize their kills.' ...Author: Combat follows soldiers home describes ‘Lethal Warriors’ tale. 31983

We should all be glad that this low life Right Winger is going to jail for his low life harassment of his Gay roommate! The roommate named Tyler Clementi shown above playing the violin, subsequently committed suicide because nobody tried to stop this criminal harassment and menacing from occurring until it was far too late. Rutgers verdict: Dharun Ravi guilty of hate crimes, other charges. 31684

The troops don’t want your support, they want you to enable them

In protesting war, it's not enough to say you "support the troops", even as you advocate to "bring them home". Soldiers see criticizing war as directed at them because it underminds the purity of spirit they want to go about their destructive missions. Don't expect to get anywhere with trying to explain legal or moral issues. Their military indoctrination omits understanding war crimes like collective punishment, disproportionate force, massacre, murder, and by the looks of it, even rape of your fellow female soldiers. No, today's soldiers want enablers to help them "embrace the carnage" so they can "do what they have to do" wherever they're deployed. Even stationed stateside, they're unencumbered by critical thought, they certainly don't want to hear yours.

The Colorado Springs Occupy Movement needs to burn some Bibles out at Fort Carson perhaps?

'The U.S. government and the American commander of NATO-led forces in Afghanistan apologized after Afghan laborers found charred copies of the Koran while collecting rubbish at the sprawling Bagram Airbase, about an hour's drive north of Kabul.' See Reuters Six killed, many wounded in Afghan Koran protests. 30612

Sulzman Weekly Rush Hour Bannering

COLORADO SPRINGS- We covered all corners and medians at the intersection of Nevada and Uintah for a Rush Hour Bannering against adding Apache helicopters to Ft Carson's 4th Cav, organized by Bill Sulzman --Next week: Nevada Ave and I-25, Friday 4:30pm. 21348

Piñon Canyon slowly being conquered by Imperialists

It's not just apparent, it's Elephant-in-the-parlor obvious that the Pentagon assumes they own not only every square centimeter of Foreign lands conquered by their Legion of Doom Imperial Stormtroopers. Every square centimeter in America too. Ed has put together a short collection of videos pointing up the planned assault on Americans by American Military, something that wasn't available a century and a half ago when the Imperial Storm Troopers wore blue uniforms with yellow stripes on the legs and rode horses as they murdered Americans to take the land. The first I'm posting, actually the middle of the series, he takes the "fightin' words" the TeaBag racist scum use. Points out that the Tea Potty really doesn't defend the rights and freedoms of Individual Citizens, rather, they defend the Privileges of Corporate "citizens". If the ranches in Piñon Canyon were owned by Halliburton, maybe? And The prequel to the one above this. And And the last of the series, in its proper order. 20491

Helicopter crashes in foothills of Pikes Peak, local Gazette calls it hard landing

COLORADO SPRINGS- The complicit media accepts the Army's characterization of the 1:30AM crash as a "hard landing" and neither the condition of the Apache Longbow aircraft nor its occupants is being revealed; even though emergency vehicles reached the downed Apache via Gold Camp Road and the crew were rushed to Memorial Hospital, civilian jurisdiction. The citizens of Colorado Springs are being kept on a need to know basis, as Fort Carson increases its flight training for choppers being deployed to Afghanistan, even as the training battleground becomes the skies about our neighborhoods.

A bit of Blatant Racism from veteran historian Dave Hughes and the Gazette

Ok so nothing actually NEW about that, except that it was published yesterday. Mr Hughes celebrates the "counterinsurgency" and "Anti-Terrorist" actions of the Racist Murderer Kit Carson and the Colorado Militia. Yeppers! While blatantly comparing the Racist War on Iraq and Afghanistan to the equally Racist, equally For Profit War Of Conquest which "subjugated" the American Indians, he doesn't apologize for his own attitude that them thar dark skinned "insurgents" need to be Put In Our Place and God-Damn Stay There. 15666

Sustainability catch phrase for profiteers

COLORADO SPRINGS- At Rosamund Naylor's CC lecture "Where's the Beef?" about the basic unsustainability of beef, whether corn or grass fed, we discussed three facets of the sustainable equation: biophysical, economic and social. The Southern Colorado Sustainability Conference taking place today and tomorrow is more interested in a fourth: military sustainability, or how to sustain its mission. The PPSBN event is a green wash for area businesses, primarily weapons industry contractors, and Fort Carson, to claim for example, that setting aside land for a firing range will ameliorate urban growth. Their keynote speaker this year is Nancy Tuor of CH2M Hill, one of the top war profiteers in Iraq and Afghanistan, implicated among the disaster profiteers of Hurricane Katrina. 10971

Ft Carson is Burnt Acres not Green Acres

For several years now Colorado Springs has watched in incredulous dismay as the Pentagon has tried to represent its local terrorism training center, Fort Carson, as being some sort of Green Acres to Coloradans. Incredibly, the local group of Democrats at the Pikes Peak Justice and Peace Commission have done their part in playing part of the game with the military in this regard, as they held joint meetings with the military and even printed up some of their propaganda about being 'Green' in their quarterly newsletter. 6774

Pentagon tortures 15 y/o POW, loses ‘confession’ tape, but still wants to enter it into ‘trial’!

Former Gitmo prosecutor rips military trials, calling interrogators' practices 'despicable' The 15 y/o taken as POW in Afghanistan was tortured, his torture obtained 'confession' video taped by his interrogators, and yet now 'the confession' is being entered in by the US government-military as supposed evidence against the juvenile POW at their military procedures. All this taking place at its own illegal US government sponsored Kangaroo Court trial for the young man, though the US military claims that they have actually lost the taped confession! 6060

Pvt. Robin Long tries to plea bargain with US military

In a risky move, Pvt. Robin Long is going for a reduced sentence by essentially agreeing to a plea bargain from the US military Establishment. Soldier to plead guilty to lower desertion charge Soldier to plead guilty to reduced desertion charge at Colorado's Fort Carson, his lawyer says.
