Because you supported the troops, today we have to f-ck the police

If there's a chant that unites protesters across America it is "FTP!" No matter the issue, from BLM to GMOs, excessive use of force by police against dissenting citizens is the common grievance. The UN has even condemned US human rights abuses, this time police violence and racial discrimination. Our emergant police state may be the business end of the New World Order, but its troubling conduct is directly traceable to US military rules of engagement. These violent cops are our vets! 42755

Have Americans overtaken the Nazis as the real benchmark for Godwin’s Rule?

Funny how Americans think the Nazis are still the ne plus ultra of evildom. Isn't it about time we stop pretending the cruelty of Hitler's machine exceeded ours? The US military has of course blown well past the benchmark of "Godwin's Rule" by any measure of war crime both in quality and quantity, the question is, for how long has this been true? The initiate might think Vietnam marked our trespass into the Ugly American of infamy, our ensuing exploits in Latin America cementing our ignoble national character, but US colonial possessions worldwide know we've applied American moxie to a Final Solution stratagem wherever we've roamed. Before our westward expansion domestically, we settled with genocidal intent under a crown's mentorship. America's plan for its indigenous populations was the model for the Nazi relocation and extermination system, so for the Germans we were the "Nazis". Odd how that perspective got lost in our history of WWII, our "Good War".

US military working with Honduran dictatorship according to The New York Times

'Lessons from Iraq and the War Against Drugs in Honduras- The New York Times in its May 5th edition published an article that stated in its first paragraph: “The United States military has brought lessons from the past decade of conflict to the drug war being fought in the wilderness of Miskito Indian country, constructing this remote base camp with little public notice... 33755

Collaborators, rats and pigs

I found this unsigned flier in Denver, a collage of the American eagle, globe in mouth, and Stars & Stripes over US misdeeds, clockwise from top left: race lynching, branding slaves, blindfolded Iraqi detainees, combatant corpse desecration, Hiroshima, torture of Viet Cong, My Lai, Columbus' mass burning of Taíno Indians, Filipino insurgents executed in trenches, the gruesome trophy pic, etc, framing this succinct condemnation: "The US military, intelligence operatives, and police are traitors to humanity. Those who work with them, those who friend them, and those who sleep with them are collaborators. They are rats and pigs."

There is nothing noble about being in the military

'We could start by telling the nation’s young people, and our own children, that there is nothing noble about joining today’s military, when its function is imperialism, conquest, genocide and, frighteningly, perhaps soon even domestic repression. As for those “highly competitive career fields” they can get trained in? Many of these involve killing innocent men, women and children.' -- Thanks, David Lindorff, for being honest in your excellent commentary Trolling for Kids about the US military and the actual and real motives of the men and women GETTING PAID for by that government body. 32779

US military created today’s monster terrorist drug trafficking gang alliance

The Zetas, Mexico's nastiest gang of drug traffickers noted for mutilating bodies and dumping body parts all over the place into cities and rural towns alike, and the Mara Salvatrucha, Central America's most notorious gang are joining forces together. See Two of Latin America's deadliest gangs join forces and then let us examine some the history of how these two gangs now have ended up allied together, and who helped create them in the first place? 32561

Is the US military now torturing the jailed children and three widows of Osama bin Laden?

The US government and its military have a long history of torturing and murdering POWs held by its soldiers and their allies, and 14 of Osama bin Laden's family are now being held incognito in a Pakistani military jail. Are these three women plus their eight children and the other three relatives being tortured at this time? Osama's wives, kids remanded in judicial custody for 9 days. I definitely would not rule it out at all as the US military consistently breaks international law in the commission of all its various foreign occupations and wars. Torturing the family members of Osama bin Laden, all done supposedly to gather vital information, is exactly the type of atrocity that one can expect from 'our' government's thugs.

Robert Bales, US military war criminal, was a conman with a nasty background when he signed up as a soldier

Info is now beginning to leak out about the criminal background of Robert Bales when he signed into the US military to be put into a command position. See Afghan Murder Suspect Joined Army During Fraud Probe ...What a seedy guy this Sgt. Robert Bales is, defrauding a couple out of $1 and a half million and then running off to the military to join up to escape having to pay it back and/ or be criminally sentenced! 31961

Occupier vs The People, how they lie about ‘protecting Free Speech’ for us

Just the name Occupy Wall Street is an antiwar statement. The US military is an Occupier military against The People for the 1% Super Rich, and we are the exact opposite of such. We would Occupy the lands of the Rich and give to the Poor instead. The pro militarism people always say that they have 'served' to protect my 'Free Speech'. Does that occupier with the rifle look like he is protecting OUR 'Free Speech"? I doubt it. Remember Kent State and Jackson State!

ABC News previously showed film about US soldiers from Fort Lewis torturing & murdering Afghan civilians

Following is the link to an ABC News episode where they played the interrogation film of Corporal Jeremy N. Morlock, who 'is one of five GI's charged with pre-meditated murder in a case that includes allegations of widespread drug use and the collection of body parts and photos of the U.S. soldiers holding the Afghan bodies like hunter's trophies. All five soldiers were part of the 5th Stryker Combat Brigade, of the 2nd Infantry Division, based at Ft. Lewis-McChord, Washington.' It also includes a US soldier relating how they planned to leave an Afghan man paralyzed and then kill his mother so as to further torture him. 31511

US Occupation troops starve the children of Afghanistan half to death

'More than half of Afghan children under the age of five are chronically malnourished, according to the joint report by the World Bank and the government.' The full responsibility for this lies with the US military Commander in Chief, Barack Obama. See AFP report Afghan child hunger among worst in world: report ....How many Afghan children have actually died from the hunger caused by the US government and its troops occupying Afghanistan? 31132

Battle for Hearts & Minds of Afghan and Iraqi people has been lost by US troops

Does anybody in the US really believe that the American military has won over the Hearts and Minds of the people in Afghanistan and Iraq, let alone in other parts of the Middle East?   Our government's military is a corporate modeled occupation army and not one fit to over Hearts and Minds of those whose lands they occupy. For example, read Just Plain Stupidity Or A Failure By Design? ... Burning the Quran; Urinating On Dead Bodies ... In that commentary the author talks about the 'brainless' behavior of the US occupation forces. But could it be any other way? Racist military men and women hardly are the best conduit for winning people over to supporting the US. They are just over there to do a 'job', make a 'career' for themselves in the US military, and then get back home and grab some of the extras that the military offers up to its hires.

Army “Revolutionary” XM25 weapon will revolutionize US people killing

The $35,000 rifle fires exploding ordnance, enabling US infantrymen to kill people behind walls or at distances of 2,300 ft. No indication that our soldiers can now SEE behind walls, or differentiate between combatants and noncombatants at such great distance. Meaning the XM25 will "revolutionize" killing, as military spokesmen say, probably the same innocents we're massacring now, but an order of higher magnitude. If the same braggarts had a hand in naming the XM25, it means times (X) a magnitude (M) of 25, which I'll bet is an arbitrary underestimation, where Collateral Damage approaches 100%. And get this, the Army assure us that the XM25 can be fired from the safety of distance and from cover, both of which the XM25 deprives of our adversary. "Revolutionary" pretends to reference the spirit of America's only defensible war for our independence, but it really means another leap in the arms race, use of disproportional power, further distorting our inhuman arm's length from war conventions, eliminating "cover" for our victims, but not for our own fighters because our opponents could never afford such a weapon. The DoD's own words. 20696

Who runs Colorado Springs?

Somalia and the Pentagon Pirates of the Indian Ocean

It is a clear indication of how iron clad government controlled is the US corporate press that news reporting about Somalia in the last couple of weeks has been centered on the stoning to death of a young girl and 'pirates'. Never mind those millions of starving refugees in the country that the Pentagon has created, it's 'Indiana Jones' time here for the American media! And pirates are always fun to play with! But who are the real pirates off the coast of Somali in the Indian Ocean? Asia Times Online gives us some insight into just that question... NATO reaches into the Indian Ocean 5573

Death of a Democracy

The domestic news is bleak across the board. Brother Jonah has already weighed in on the government's latest post-9/11 power grab. Here's a little more on the subject.   From the Army Times: Beginning Oct. 1 for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks. IT STARTS NEXT WEEK 4870
