U.S. SOLDIERS ARE READYING FOR A MASSIVE DEPLOYMENT

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO- You thank them for their service. You support them, they’re only following orders. You know they’re not at liberty to divulge everything they do or WHERE. As their supporters you are complicit, but whatever. Now your soldiers are keeping a HUGE secret from you. They’re GOING TO WAR. You’d think that would be too controversial to be a state secret.

If you leave in a military town, near a base, fort or camp, you need only ask around. Pawn shops and car dealerships seem to have their finger on the pulse of troop movements for some reason. In Colorado Springs, everybody knows. Friends and neighbors have already deployed overseas to establish contractor services. Others in readiness training.

Of course the big secret for awhile has been Africa. American soldiers have been involved in covert operations across Africa which none are still allowed to talk about. Those aren’t undeclared wars, just police actions. This time, again, it’s Iraq. Going back. I shall return.

Are they waiting on Spring? Summer weather? The election? Commander in Chief Clinton? Likely.

It used to be soldiers didn’t talk about mobilization. “Loose lips sink ships” etc. Of course in those days the public knew the nation was at war. War had been declared on us, or a fascist belligerent attacked. Today when the US launches offensive wars, illegal wars they’re called in the Hague, its troop movements have to be extra covert. Or not, actually, when mobilization is prelude to Shock and Awe.

Troop sneakiness seems to be all about sneaking past the American pulbic. Sneaking past us to unknown conflict zones in Africa and Asia, sneaking past us to redeploy to Iraq. At some point those soldiers have to understand what they’re doing is not only unpopular, it’s likely wrong.

Maybe we can ask the Pope to call for the release of American mercenaries captured in a Baghdad brothel

WE SAY they were civilian contractors kidnapped from a Baghdad neighborhood apartment. WE ARE investigating whether the abduction was coordinated by Iran. When those missing are Western agents or corporate media propagandists or covert special ops (or wayward US sailors armed with AK-47s), we say they are abducted and scour diplomatic channels for traces of the underword. When the victims are adversarial persons of interest to Western military intelligence or the White House, they are rendered extraordinarily or summarily incinerated from the sky end of story.

Can you imagine foreign diplomats approaching US officials about their passport holders gone missing? How simply ludicrous that the US is indignant that our mercenaries are being picked off at the scene of their crimes. Iraq is a war zone. What, the occupied peoples must endure our drones but can’t arrest our criminals? Even when we’re raping Iraqi women? American exceptionalists bomb hospitals but hold brothels to be no fly zones.

US media won’t report who the contractors were or what they were doing. Security service company SALLYPORT is denying the three men work for them, or their parent company MICHAEL BAKER INTERNATIONAL, or doing work for GENERAL DYNAMICS CORP under contract with the US Army. The Dirty Three might have been in the sex trafficking service of providing “comfort women” for the US soldiers being redeployed to Iraq. “Sallyport” sounds pretty damned ugly to me. Good riddance.

US Global War On Terror finally drops pretense of not being war on Islam

We’re AT WAR WITH THE ISLAMIC STATE! ISIS being not merely al-Qaeda in Iraq or Mesopotamia or the Levant, depending on who’s spinning your translation, but terrorists bent on establishing an Islamic State in Iraq and Syria! Someone is going to get an advertising award for the ISIS brand, though it sounds like an episode of Ad Men pitching a concept for Get Smart. What exactly is the West’s objection to an Islamic Califate? We already support the Jewish califate of Israel which has a regular record of far greater atrocities. If Americans are upset by the beheading videos attributed to ISIS it’s because ally Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow its frequent and similarly executed spectacles to be broadcast publically. Well, at least President Obama has abandoned the irrationality of a Global War on Terror, in favor of calling what critics have always known it to be, a War on Islam. When we’re finally candid we can admit we are defending Western imperialism from the forces who oppose usury, exploitation and slavery.

Obama: Yeah, we tortured some folks, and now we’re gonna bomb some folks

NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Not another war on Iraq! Not an intervention, not precision bombing, not saving a minority from massacre. If this rescue of Iraqis was about preventing a massacre, the US would be intervening with airstrikes against Israel. Last week President Obama admited that Bush-era CIA interrogation methods were torture. “We tortured some folks,” spoken with the same expectation of impunity as he now launches another illegal war.

A lesson the US forgot about Iraq? Prosecute war criminals like General McMaster, don’t spread their “lessons”


COLORADO SPRINGS– Whose fault is it that America is “forgetting the lessons of Iraq and Afghanistan”? We never learned them… Instead of prosecuting war criminals like General “H.R.” McMaster, fans of neoliberal genocide like the Colorado Springs World Affairs Council celebrate the yahoo and let him infect public minds about how the atrocity of TEL AFAR was a victory and not the crime against humanity it resembles. What was this bastard’s kernel of wisdom about his fine-tuning of a counterinsurgency technique which dates to America’s Indian Wars? Don’t be afraid to call genocide a “win”. Uncritical Gazette reporter Tom Roeder quotes McMaster saying Americans should be “unabashed.” Unabashed! Goddamn moral degenerate and we stand him up in front of crowds without a noose and scaffold! We have only ourselves to blame that our blimpneck officers congratulate themselves for their lessons learned.

James Steele, Pentagon organizer of Iraqi torture and death squads, again exposed in new documentary

images-45— Why is the horrible sectarian violence still continuing in Iraq today? A new documentary exposes how the US-Pentagon organizer (James Steele) of Iraq’s death squads post overthrow of Saddam Hussein began his campaign of Pentagon made torture squads in Vietnam, carried it forward into organizing Central America’s militaries’ death and torture squads as well, and now most recently into US troop occupied Iraq where the US war makers used Shia against Sunni residents. James Steele’s job was to organize Shia torture and death squads. This Pentagon soldier/thug’s legacy lives on ’till this day.

Is the name ‘James Steele’ an amalgam of the names of James Bond and Joseph Stalin? Stalin means Steel in Russian… See James Steele: America’s mystery man in Iraq – video

Violence US military brought to Iraq, Obama Admin now is bringing to Syria

Here is this weekend’s news from Iraq … A wave of bombings across Iraq has killed 84 people and injured nearly 300 in the deadliest day in the country since US troops withdrew last year. ___ And now these thuggish Democratic and Republican politicians want to bring this Pentagon supplied bloodshed to Syria so that they can then blame Assad for it? Why don’t they first spend some hundreds of billions of dollars to repair the mess they have made in both Iraq and Afghanistan before they go out looking for new targets to slaughter in Syria and Iran? Obama truly Sucks!

Go back to your country, Terrorist?

US government militarism occupies this woman’s country and kills over a million of its citizens over several decades, and yet it is the Iraqi born woman who is labeled a terrorist by her killer? All decent Americans need to demand Justice for Shaima Al Awadi!
 
Is this killer of this poor woman perhaps a soldier or vet, too?… because American occupations of other peoples’ countries now fuels this racist violence running rampant throughout the US. See Iraqi mother, Shaima Al Awadi, dies days after being viciously beaten with tire iron.

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.

Are Soldiers ‘baby killers’?

Are soldiers ‘baby killers’? This is an interesting question for many reasons, one of which is simply because nobody I know has ever actually used this particular accusation phrased in exactly this particular manner against US troops. But that doesn’t stop many Right Wingers from becoming absolutely hysterical against US Leftists when we open our mouths against THEIR wars, where they then go on to often accuse us Leftists of supposedly calling US soldiers ‘baby killers’.

That charge is some sort of high crime in their seemingly rather clueless heads, that leads the Right Wing mind to thinking it perfectly alright to personally threaten others with physical violence and demands from them to ‘shut you up’. It seems that to the Right Wing mind, the American troops trained to kill in battle are some sort of totally fragile and childlike creature that needs some sort of super special protection, or else the soldier will supposedly shatter into a million and one pieces under the effects of the rather mythical diagnosis of ‘PTSD’ that is now all the style to say that so many US soldiers have. Yes, the effects of being a US soldier wear hard on their often tiny little consciences, so we in the general public are simply told to shut up about talking about what their soldier ‘jobs’ actually consist of doing.

Curiously enough though, the charge that soldiers were ‘baby killers’ is just what the Pentagon itself used to start off its multiple assaults/WARS on the Iraqi people. Apparently the Pentagon itself thought nothing at the time, of accusing OTHER soldiers of being ‘baby killers’. However, the current Right Wing rabble seems to remember nothing about what I am referring to at all. Truly a spectacular case of selective amnesia by a KKK like mob! So let’s refer back to the Pentagon propaganda of the Poppy Bush Era, ala 1990…

…from the Christian Science Monitor comes this personal story of how the events of that time unfolded to one American, and how the Pentagon accused soldiers of being ‘baby killers’- Read below.

‘More than 10 years later, I can still recall my brother Sean’s face. It was bright red. Furious. Not one given to fits of temper, Sean was in an uproar. He was a father, and he had just heard that Iraqi soldiers had taken scores of babies out of incubators in Kuwait City and left them to die. The Iraqis had shipped the incubators back to Baghdad. A pacifist by nature, my brother was not in a peaceful mood that day. “We’ve got to go and get Saddam Hussein. Now,” he said passionately.

I completely understood his feelings. Although I had no family of my own then, who could countenance such brutality? The news of the slaughter had come at a key moment in the deliberations about whether the US would invade Iraq. Those who watched the non-stop debates on TV saw that many of those who had previously wavered on the issue had been turned into warriors by this shocking incident.

Too bad it never happened. The babies in the incubator story is a classic example of how easy it is for the public and legislators to be mislead during moments of high tension. It’s also a vivid example of how the media can be manipulated if we do not keep our guards up. The invented story eventually broke apart and was exposed.’ (excerpted from 'When contemplating war, beware of babies in incubators' )

Here is the history now of how the Pentagon charge that soldiers had ‘killed babies’ really was an excuse for the US to go and ‘kill babies’? Well, let’s leave that particular phrasing as a question mark for now, and go to wikipedia’s entry about this piece of rather recent US history…

(from wikipedia)- Nayirah (testimony) refers to the controversial testimony given before the non-governmental Congressional Human Rights Caucus on October 10, 1990, by a female who provided only her first name, Nayirah. In her emotional testimony, Nayirah stated that after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait she had witnessed Iraqi soldiers take babies out of incubators in a Kuwaiti hospital, take the incubators, and leave the babies to die.

Though reporters did not then have access to Kuwait, her testimony was regarded as credible at the time and was widely publicized. It was cited numerous times by United States senators and the president in their rationale to back Kuwait in the Gulf War.

Her story was initially corroborated by Amnesty International and testimony from evacuees. Following the liberation of Kuwait, reporters were given access to the country and found the story of stolen incubators unsubstantiated. However, they did find that a number of people, including babies, died when nurses and doctors fled the country.

In 1992, it was revealed that Nayirah’s last name was al-?aba? (Arabic: ???? ???????) and that she was the daughter of Saud bin Nasir Al-Sabah, the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States. Furthermore, it was revealed that her testimony was organized as part of the Citizens for a Free Kuwait public relations campaign which was run by Hill & Knowlton for the Kuwaiti government. Following this, al-Sabah’s testimony has largely come to be regarded as wartime propaganda.’

So now we know that both the Pentagon and US government itself have accused soldiers FALSELY of being ‘baby killers’, but does that automatically mean that American Leftists do the same regarding US troops? No, it does not. Because it simply is not a falsehood to mention how the US troops sprayed Agent Orange all over Vietnam (including upon themselves), and that Agent Orange went onto to kill children and even babies, and continues to do this killing up to this very day.

Neither is it a lie to mention the use by US soldiers of their depleted uranium based weaponry in Iraq, where the radiation from this armament continues to kill children and even babies up to this very day, and maybe forward throughout decades into the future.

As participants in today’s Occupy Movement, we have a duty to patriotically tell the truth about our unrepresentative government and its military personnel’s actions. We are a Free Speech Movement if nothing else at all, and the efforts of a few Right Wingers (oftentimes aligned with Republican Far Rightist, Ron Paul’s campaign) to shut us up when we tell the truth about the US military cannot be allowed to go unchallenged inside Occupy. Yes, the actions of US troops do kill kids. In fact, often times CHILDREN are deliberately targeted by the Pentagon in the multiple covert actions that the US military is always engaged in. Children next to their parents are fair targets as far as the Pentagon soldier’s are concerned.

US troops do kill kids and efforts to stop that from being said are undemocratic and Right Wing in nature. People who desire to shut others up for speaking out against US militarist atrocities have no place in Occupy, and should never be allowed to speak for the Movement. Truth is, their simply is no way to create anything other than multiple ‘killers’ of children in the US soldier population, whose duties including invading and occupying other people’s nations. Truth is.

Time to examine what you are actually doing, US Soldier. In your multiple conversations with us, you yourself have stated over and over and over again, that you will simple mindedly shoot first and ask any and all questions later…. no matter what carnage you might create for the children you come into contact with. Let’s clearly label what your job is.

And Right Wingers out there among the US soldiers, you take your orders from a government and military that FALSELY labeled soldiers as supposedly having ‘killed babies’. So what’s your beef with me, Tony the Lefty? That I told the truth about what’s actually going on??? If so, then what the Hell are you doing in the Occupy Movement?

The Puppet-Masters and their pet Turkey, double-dealing.

They condemn those of us in America who rebel against their fascist Corporate leadership and presumption of ownership of every aspect of our lives, calling it “Freedom” while their Pig-Slaves break our heads with clubs and plastic bullets. And in the case of Oscar Grant, lead and copper bullets.
While cheering rebellions in countries which have denied “deprived” the Poor Little Rich Boys like Halliburton, Exxon-Mobil, British Petroleum, Royal Dutch, Shell, “stolen” their claim to have Corporate Control over their ports and their oil. And they actually finance and organize the so-called “spontaneous” rebellions like in Libya and now, Syria. Never mind they’re also paying Other Peoples Money And Lives to put down REAL grass roots movements in Iraq and Afghanistan and Yemen… And Turkey.
Turkey is now paying back their Corporate Overlords for the U.S. and NATO PUBLICLY FUNDED Terror War against the Kurds and Albania. The Slave-Caliph Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemns Syria for responding violently to violent attacks while continuing to suppress, with the help of his Puppet Masters in London and Washington, the Kurdish People actually having a right to life.
Lick them Pentagon Boots, “caliph” Erdogan. They’re your masters and you are their dog. Just like the New Puppet Regime in Libya, and the somewhat more established Puppet Regimes in Tel Aviv, Kabul, and Baghdad.
Be the little whipped hound for racist bastards who call you “ragheads” and “sand-niggers” and “muzzle monkeys”.
You might wear golden chains and a gold collar, but they’re still a collar and chain.
Just like the Oakland, Denver, Colorado Springs and New York Police departments violently suppressing freedom here, in the very homeland of your puppet-masters and, at their bidding.

Remember the Maine, the Alamo, Pearl Harbor or the day they found WMDs in Iraq?

I remember the day they pretended to have found WMDs. On CNN and FOX there were were reports that an oil refinery outside Baghdad had been liberated by U.S. Marines with WMDs inside. So they brought cameras in… embedded and therefore non-truthful reporters. A dank, dirty place. Oil refineries are like that. A huge stack of bent, rusted and otherwise unsafe 55 gallon drums. They would have been stacked that way to make the trip to the recycling plant. Nobody in his right mind would use one to store even the NORMAL toxic petrochemicals. Then about 30 barrels, unstained by the pollution, the smoke or smog or haze of burnt or vaporized oils, the soot that was caked onto every OTHER surface. Powder Blue paint on them, looked just like they had come directly from wherever they were manufactured. Not like, say, they were a decade old, hidden and moved since 1991. You might ask, “Jonah, how the Hell would you be able to tell that?” to which Jonah might well reply, “Because I worked in steel mills, solvent and glue plants, and oil refineries”. They were stacked, actually. Not on pallets and lifted up by crane or forklift. No, STACKED. Fairly neatly. Something you’re not going to get any manual laborers to do if they’ve got anything in them. A full 55 gallon drum weighs almost a quarter of a ton.
And then the camera lights glanced rapidly over some black and white letters written on the sides of the drums, not a complete view but you could see that they were in English and tagged for export.

  • Produ

    Unite

 

Oh my.Anything packaged for export from Iraq would have a lot of Arabic writing, maybe some Pharsi, and maybe some English but this was ALL english. Neither the U.S. nor Britain had shipped anything to Iraq in a decade.Why I remember this so clearly, because they yanked any further mention of it when a very small handful of internet users spotted it. And now, long after Bush and Blair and Brown finally said “Yeah, we faked the WMD story, so what?” an eerily similar cabal is forming to make war on Iran on reports of WMDs.

And there are a lot of people willing to just throw out the ol’ Hitler Salute and give the lying thieving murderous sons of whores license to lie to them some more. Maybe enough to justify the planned attack just long enough to start committing such attacks.

For those whose religious reason for doing it would be to bring on the end of the world, you’re really fucking stupid and you’re definitely not prepared for Judgment Day.

War is over, so they say…

Said, in different words, that the illegal conquest Iraqi Oilfields and National Prison-camp Ghetto Rebuilding has been secured and that the Iraqi Puppet Army and Police are sufficiently trained in Western Style Police Brutality.
What a victory for Righteousness and Decency!
Strange that they never found all those WMDs, though, ain’t it? Meanwhile neighboring Syria and Iran are targeted and Guess Which Really Stupid Lie They’re Telling Us to justify that? Go on, guess…
Ok I’ll tell you. WMDs. Apparently a nation like the U.S. which employs torture and assassinations that have historically killed about twenty times as many non-combatants as they do “terrorists” and many of whose political leaders believe they should establish a fundamentalist religious dictatorship worldwide, is the only nation morally fit to have WMDs. Add in that the U.S., which has more of every class of weapon than the entire rest of the world combined, is also the only nation to have used all three classes of WMD, Biological, Nuclear and Chemical.
And routinely uses gas and is experimenting with mass Pain weapons against “their own” citizens. Sort of a high-tech version of what they accuse Gadafi and Hussein of doing.
And make no mistake, the American Cop or Soldier using torture or killing anybody anywhere in the world, gets just as big a sadistic thrill from his use of violence as any of Saddam or Moammar’s worst Gestapo-esque Goon Squad member.
They get a bigger thrill when the victim is a Child, elderly or disabled.
Yeah. Even the CSPD. I bet they show the Explorers videos of their torture sessions to weed out those who aren’t as depraved as Real Cops.
There’s also the matter of Afghanistan….

And leave us not forget Pakistan. Which General Betray-us has in his sights now that he’s the chief of the Central Global Intelligence Agency.
The military and Intelligence services have united, wholeheartedly, behind the Conquest of The World for the profit of the 1%.

Afghanistan, which they cheerfully predicted would be a cakewalk, like Iraq, which neither of them actually WAS a “cakewalk”… because of their relative poverty, really small populations and lack of actual Weapons of Any Destruction…
Afghanistan was ranked the poorest country on earth, had 5 aircraft in the entire country which were destroyed within the first several minutes of the intensive bombing.
The second and subsequent waves of bombing were, as one analyst boasted, “stirring up the rubble from the first”. I’m not going to apologize for saying this, if any of the Right Wing Trolls who read this haven’t figured that out, too damn bad, but Aerial Bombardment is Babykilling and always has been. What the U.S.A.F. has done in Afghanistan and Iraq and Libya is morally equivalent to what the Italian, Spanish and Luftwaffe “volunteers” did in Guernica and Ethiopia.

Now some of the Educated Morons in the State Department and Military are making plans Open Threats to do the same to Pakistan and Iran.

Let’s do some comparison figures to show the accuracy of my next statement shall we?
Iraq (by CIA estimates) 30 million.
Oklahoma (approximate equivalent geographic size) 3 million
Most of Iraqi population concentrated in three cities.

Afghanistan, 29 million.
Iran 72.9 million.
Whoa now, that’s 120% of the combined populations of Iraq, Afghanistan.

Y’all MightMakesRight Wingnuts still following that, or do actual and correct numbers frighten you? Like they do with Gun Death statistics in America or the percentage of White people on welfare…

Pakistan 170 million.
and Pakistan actually HAS nuclear weapons, developed and deployed using American foreign aid (buy the countries guns instead of butter)
Libya built hospitals throughout Africa with their “socialist” nationalized oil money. The U.S. sent in guns and military “advisers” aka “Provincial governors”. Same with Chavez/Castro in the Americas. They built medical schools, sent in doctors… and the U.S. spent trillions propping up puppet Corporate Dictatorships like Panama and Costa Rica.
U.S. supplied rifles and ammunition are being used to assassinate labor leaders and doctors in Panama and Costa Rica even as I write this, and the people targeted for death, their identities and locations were provided to the Panamanian and Costa Rican Dictators by U.S. Military and CIA “advisors”.

So, here’s that statement I mentioned the Population Comparisons would bear out the truth thereof…
The scenario for conquering Iran and Pakistan involves a nuclear exchange. U.S. bases in the region, including the soldiers who were NOT pulled out of Iraq, (only combat soldiers were, there’s still U.S. Air Force and Army bases there… once we take a country we don’t voluntarily give it back) to back up the Puppet Regime.
All U.S. bases in the region will be placed in direct line of retaliatory strikes.
And it would take nuclear strikes on the part of the Koalition of The Killing (U.S., U.K., the rest of NATO) to neutralize Iran and Pakistan.

Oh, and did I mention, at least in this post, that three other Nuclear Armed states adjoin Iraq and Pakistan.
China, India and (I’m counting it like it was still Soviet) Russia.

The scenario the Pentagon describes is in the “Best Case” annihilation of Pakistan and Iran before there can be a retaliatory strike and hopefully before Iranians and Pakistani soldiers and militia swarm over the porous borders of Iraq and Afghanistan to avenge the (projected) U.S. led murders of their countrymen.
Teheran would have to be “sacrificed”, undoubtedly. 8 million people and the fast read of the population reports don’t show how many kids that is. Doesn’t matter though because the Bomber Boys enjoy the prospect of Killing More Babies. Doesn’t bother them a bit.

The worst case scenario is one of global nuclear holocaust.
A temper tantrum by the Corporate Empire based on “If we can’t have it, nobody can!”

Yep, the war is over.

Buy our elephant repellent, write us a blank check…

There’s an old joke about an “Elephant Repellent” that’s guaranteed to keep elephants away from you.
When it’s noted that there’s not an elephant for hundreds of miles around, the punch line, from the person who has already taken the money, “See how well it works?”
So, this weekend the Homeland Insecurity Thieves conned many Americans, bigger than shit. Told us there was “credible evidence” Friday morning of three recent travellers from the Middle East who were supposed to make car bombs and make them go BOOM and kill up a whole buncha people and we have to be diligent and keep looking for these guys even though there’s no picture, no names, just “beware of Arabic looking fellows” and other racist crap. We’re supposed to profile every dark skinned individual, look at every dark person as a potential murderer. What are we supposed to do, dial 9 1 1 every time a Negro enters the general area?
I mean, it sure sounds like that’s the general “non-racist” intent, right?
But anybody who notices that the threatened by unknown, un-named anonymous Terrorists and tipped off by an anonymous snitch… man, that’s mighty convenient ain’t it? And the threat never was carried out, my what a surprise… but the High Paid Liars at Homeland Security get to say “See? we prevented a terror attack and did it so well that you don’t have to know any of the details, not even how much we got paid to skin you gullible bastards outta your bread errr ‘protect you’, yeah, that’s the ticket”.
It’s called “selling a Hog”, people. It’s one of the oldest confidence games there is.
The government is taxing us to build super-secret Magic Invisible Shields to keep out the giant fire-breathing mutant flying earthworms.
You say you’ve never seen any of those giant fire breathing mutant flying earthworms? See how well it worked… now pay up….

They hanged Pinocchio and let Gepetto walk… 12/30/2006

As is so often true in death penalty cases. From 1979 til 1991 he was propped up by mostly the Reagan Regime as a counter to the Iranian revolution. Who are also the chief “witnesses” against him in the matter of killing a few thousand Iraqi citizens. With their active involvement. Their active PAID involvement, because they a) don’t work cheap and b) don’t actually work. “They” being a cast of villains like Reagan, Bush the Elder, Ollie North, the Miami Cuban Cartel, Richard Secord, Donald Rumsfeld, Admiral Poindexter, traitors and murderers all. Selling stolen arms for stolen money and getting Americans killed in the process, like the Marines in Beirut. (Lt Col North, three words, Ollie… Semper… Fi… Bitch)
They got several times as many people killed by their Other Puppets, like the Salvadoran death squads, the Contras, the Medellin Cartel, to bring more people into Capitalist Slavery in the name of “Freedom”.
And they’re still sending their brainless minions to kill for their own profit.
Any of y’all soldiers assigned to read our blog, dudes, get smart and desert. Split, boogie, depart, sortez… Get Out Of The Slaughter Machine. Your Military is owned by the same Rich Bitches who owned Saddam’s Army and financed al Qa’eda. They don’t give a rat’s ass about your lives any more than they did the 2800 they had killed on 9/11 or the 300 Marines they had murdered in Beirut or the uncounted thousands of Nicaraguan priests, nuns, nurses, doctors, teachers, orphan children and other civilians they “liberated” with American-bought bullets to the heads.

They won’t give any more of a damn about your lives than the lives of the Iraqi and Afghan civilians they had you murder. If it comes down to a choice of them facing the hangman themselves or scapegoating you the way they did their Other Puppets, you’ll be stretching the rope.

It’s just the way the coward bitches do business. Ollie North has been rewarded for his selling out “his fellow” Marines by being paid several million dollars a year to LIE for his whoremasters, on a Fox News show. Gunny Bob Newman has a similar Whore deal for much less money on Hate Talk Radio. If either of them were to actually, for the first time in their sorry worthless misspent lives, MAN THE HELL UP AND TELL THE GOD-DAMN TRUTH, they would be sold out the way their Masters sold out Manny Noriega, Saddam Hussein, Osama, the top level financiers of the Medellin Cartel…

Betraying your countrymen and your oaths is Okey Dokey with them, but betraying the Whoremasters isn’t permitted.

My Lai every day

From Wikipedia: The My Lai Massacre (Vietnamese: th?m sát M? Lai [t????m ????t m?? l??j]; English pronunciation: /?mi??la?/ ( listen), also /?mi??le?, ?ma??la?/,[1] Vietnamese: [m??l??j]) was the mass murder of 347–504 unarmed citizens in South Vietnam on March 16, 1968, conducted by “Charlie” company, 1st battalion, 20th infantry, 11th infantry brigade, of the Americal Division, United States Army. All of the victims were civilians and most were women, children (including babies), and elderly people. Many of the victims were raped, beaten, tortured, and some of the bodies were found mutilated.[2]
The massacre took place in the hamlets of M? Lai and My Khe of S?n M? village during the Vietnam War.[3][4] While 26 US soldiers were initially charged with criminal offenses for their actions at M? Lai, only 2nd Lt. William Calley, a platoon leader in charlie company, was convicted of killing 22 villagers. Originally given a life sentence, he served three and a half years under house arrest.
When the incident became public knowledge in 1969, it prompted widespread outrage around the world. The massacre also increased domestic opposition to the US involvement in the Vietnam War. Three US servicemen who made an effort to halt the massacre and protect the wounded were later denounced by US Congressmen. They received hate mail, death threats and found mutilated animals on their doorsteps.[5] It would take 30 years before they were honored for their efforts.[6]
The massacre is also known as the ‘S?n M? Massacre’ (Vietnamese: th?m sát S?n M?) or sometimes as the ‘Song M? Massacre.'[7] The US military codeword for the hamlet was Pinkville.[8]”

 
If you only type in My Lai into google search, you’ll also get a bunch of right-wing horse-shit like “Lt Calley was framed” and the chorus that any VietNamese killed in the war were Unlawful Combatants. I used to hear that crap all the time because I lived very near Ft Bliss. I don’t speak much Annamese, the official language of both VietNams, More people spoke French than Annamese anyway. The one word I recognized in that whole descriptor was “sát” which means “kill”.

VietNam is one of the Disunited Nations hacked together to please the European and American and Australian colonialists who claim hegemony over Asia. The non-Annamese tribal people are described by the French term “montagnard” which literally means hillbilly. Much like the terms “pagan” and “heathen” are a Greek and a Gaelic word meaning “somebody who lives so far out in the tall weeds that he’s beyond the bounds of civilization”

The old French word for that is “peasant” and most of the latin languages use the word “paisano”, literally somebody who is property of the aristocracy and bought or inherited or conquered along with the land and animals, domesticated or wild.

The Scots have an ongoing war between the gamekeepers and the poachers, poachers meaning anybody who isn’t the landlord who kills a wild animal bird or fish. All the fish in the streams, etc… belong to the English appointed nobility.

Every tree in the National Forest here belongs to the Timber Companies and if you’re hiking in the National Forest and cross a timber company road you’re “trespassing” on Public Land.

Every drop of oil or scrap of coal belongs to the business partners of the Timber Industry, not just in America but, obviously, in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Iran, the Everglades National Park and here locally in the National Forests and the watersheds which supply the entire western two-thirds of America. They’re even making it a campaign issue and according to some of the (many of) George Bush’s executive orders define anybody who opposes them as Terrorists. So does even the most lenient reading of the USA PATRIOT Act.

They get to poison us and we’re not supposed to object.

That’s the way it was handled in VietNam as well.

And now, Iraq, Afghanistan, the “rebel” occupied regions of Libya, Colombia, Nicaragua, Panama, Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador… and if the War Pigs division of Corporate America have their way, Cuba and Venezuela will be brought to heel like the Trained Puppy-Dogs who “run” the other Banana Republics… including the state of Colorado… for their Corporate Masters.

The hate-speech against the soldiers who testified and brought the My Lai massacre to light received death threats for years, much the same way the “patriots” give anonymous death threats to those of us who object publicly to their ongoing Terror Campaign in favor of the Corporate Rulers.

Next Sunday they’ll be celebrating a frenzy of hatred against Muslims, Blacks, Hispanics, anybody who “doesn’t fit in” with their picture of “The Real America” as their Spokes-Morons like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann and the not a real Joe and not a real Plumber Sam Wurzlbach describe us.

Hatred which somehow justifies bombing the living dogshit out of any country on earth who opposes their Hegemony, who withhold ownership of so much as a gallon of Oil from their Greedy Bloodstained hands.

And somehow justifies killing more Americans every month than the number who died on 9/11 just by steady denial of Health Care.

Actually if they discount the Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Taoists, Citizens With Funny Names, Foreign Workers, Atheists, Pagans and Non-People Christians-who-attend-different-churches than the Palinite Terror Regime do, oh, and foreign workers (many of them undocumented and thus they don’t count in the Memorial Crusade Hate-Feasts scheduled for next Sunday and Monday) who died at the Tower Tumbling Down Incident… discounting them would bring the ratio of people who die every month /over/ people who died on 9/11 up to 2/1 or maybe even 3/1. Add in the number of people in foreign lands which didn’t have a single fucking thing to do with 9/11 who die every month and you start to get a 9/11 or at least a My Lai every day.

The Army made a few fundamental changes after My Lai, not saying they don’t still commit massacres, just that they limit the number of witnesses so that they don’t get reported.

Wikileaked: US soldiers are babykillers

A document released last week by Wikileaks tells of a 2006 raid by US troops on a farmhouse near Balad, Iraq, where the American soldiers handcuffed a household of ten, and executed them with gunshots to the head. Killed: one male adult, three female relatives, an elderly woman, four children aged 3-5, and a 5 month-old infant. Then the raiding party called in an airstrike to cover the crime. Perhaps cross referenced with the Iraq War Logs, reporters will identify which outfit committed the murders, because that’s the only way light is being shed on US war crimes, via Wikileaks. Incidentally, the Ishaqi Incident was reported on in 2006 with the Pentagon dismissing accusations that its actions were anything but appropriate. But this recent cable reveals that the USG knew what they’d done. You’d think the Department of Defense would have an interest in cooperating, because until the killers of zip-tied babies are fingered, all American soldiers are babykillers.

Things to De-Celebrate this National Hate Week

Which is a smack to the back of the head to all those who told us in 1984 that the Police State setup from the BOOK of the same name couldn’t possibly happen in America because it was all about Socialist Dystopia and nobody, no not ever, could set up a CAPITALIST dictatorship. God, they’re stupid.
 
But here’s what the post 9/11 “patriotism” has gotten us. Eight years of a moron for president, an evil moron but a moron. His crew of more intelligent evil people used the occasion to make it unpatriotic to question their plans to deregulate American industries. We’ve seen a 9/11 worth of dead Americans every single month due to denial of Health Care. We’ve seen pollution that al Qa’eda could only hope to inflict on any one small town, done daily and across the nation. We’ve seen our national surplus turned upside down, and many multiples of the amount of that surplus in debt, due to the Wars started by the aforementioned Moron in response to 9/11. The badly misnamed USA PATRIOT Act is being invoked against Julian Assange and Wikileaks in response to their telling the TRUTH about 9/11 and the aforementioned wars, the moron who started them and the morons who still follow his leadership even though it’s destroyed what used to be America. Those Morons have banded together into Right Wing Terrorist Groups such as the TeaParty, Minutemen and other “patriotic” front-ends for the Ku Klux Klan. They’ll be flying plenty of the Hate Flag. By Tea-Klan MORONS such as this couple who made their Wedding into a Hate-fest. Yep, that’s right, they’re celebrating their wedding with symbols of Starting A Racist War which killed half a million Americans in order to keep according to the 1860 census 3,950,528 Americans in perpetual bondage based on the color of their skin.

To deny AMERICANS the rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness spoken of, ever so nobly, in a revered document written by a Slaveowner. So much for the “original intent”, Jefferson spoke of Liberty in one paper then wrote whole books demonizing Black Americans and condemning them to slavery.

You find that a lot in the “original intent” doctrine espoused by those who want to return America to an official slave nation.

Emboldened by the level of pure ignorant and racist Hatred engendered by 9/11.

So, De-Celebrate it by burning the Racist Flag.

And, not just those of us who are of Darker Skin, or mixed “race”.

Every WHITE person in the world has a stake in this as well, a huge stake because it will only be by the WHITES rejecting the label the Racist PurkMeisters like the Tea-Klan want to place on All White People.

They would have me and thee and she and he and we and everybody in the whole world believe that all white people are as stupid, ignorant and hate filled as they are.

So I’m calling on the so-called “white race” to step up and redeem and reclaim the dignity of what their and my white relatives have done FOR the world. Of course, a lot of it is mixed in with some very stupid and often Evil crap.

The world wars saw many millions of mostly “christian” whites killed by other “christian” whites. Literally marched into belt-fed water-cooled machine gun fire.

And those wars, like the ones leading up to it, some of them so long and vicious they’re called by the number of years they took between declaring war and declaring peace, just for the sake of simplicity.

Which were also direct pre-cursors to the American Civil War and, yes, planted the seeds of Hatred which blossomed so brightly on 9/11 and afterward.

The Colorado Springs city and county governments are giving away red-white-blue ribbons pledging never to forget, with the suggestion that we put them on our trees, mailboxes, fences.. fuck that.

I’ll probably be picking up hundreds of them off the roads and out of the ditches the same way I STILL pick up those stupid damned antenna flags that “patriots” lose off their cars and don’t go back to retrieve them.

In fact I’m going to go around with a camera taking pictures of the ribbons and flags, the store-bought fake-ass “patriotism”, laying in the weeds and ditches and mud-gutters as I’m picking them up and it will be a reminder of the SHAME those ignorant Socially Retarded Animated Sphincters (walking assholes) bring to their own definitions of “patriotism”.

Blind racism and fear of Arabs, whether or not the Arabs are Christian, Jewish or Muslim, (yes, people, your stupid stereotypes are WRONG, take THAT, byotches!) and in fact there was a “Mosque” AT THE TWIN TOWERS which was being used for prayers at the moment the attack began. There were Muslims on the planes who were merely Passengers. In fact for all anybody knows, the ones credited with the kill might have just been passengers who happened to be Arabic.

None of the alleged hijackers were from Iraq or Afghanistan.

Indeed, among the many victims of 9/11 were several dozen innocent Muslims, ranging in age from their late 60s to a couple’s unborn child. Six of these victims were Muslim women, including one who was 7 months pregnant. Many were stockbrokers or restaurant workers, earning a living to care for their families. There were converts and immigrants, hailing from over a dozen different countries and the U.S. There were heroes: a NYPD cadet and a Marriott hotel worker, who sacrificed their lives attempting to rescue others. The Muslim victims were parents to over 30 children, who were left orphaned

Also many of the victims were “illegal” Immigrants who were working at or near the Towers, another group of people the Hate-Freak Confederate Tea-Klan like to demonize.

Again, take THAT, byotches! Fold your bigotry and prejudice and racism until it’s all sharp corners and shove it up your collective Arse, sideways so it hurts more.

FOX broadcasting at it again, Gullible Travails and A Modest Proposal

CW57, one of the local DumFox stations, aired an “infomercial” for a seminar, books and training videos on how to take advantage of the housing market crash, telling the Gullible that if they buy the properties ON CREDIT (even though they’re targeting people who are already in bankruptcy and facing foreclosure) then sell them to rich real estate developers for tens of times what the houses are currently priced, financed on both transactions with an Adjustable Rate Mortgage by the same investment banks which wrote a blank rubber check for the last time this scam was perpetrated. Now, the paper they hung on us last time, it wasn’t the primary cause of the Recession Massive Economic Collapse it was just (normally, as everybody knows, I avoid cliché like the plague, but I’m going out on a limb and doing it anyway) the straw that broke the camel’s back.
30 straight years of unfunded Reaganomics, the collapse of the infrastructure, such as levies, bridges, roads, other privately owned public utilities, unfunded war-for-profit where those who made the profit from other people dying paid no taxes on the blood money, destruction of the unions, done at public expense and again for private profiteers, and the legalization of Predatory Capitalism and relaxing every rule set in place to correct These Same Causes during the Great Depression of the 1930s… provided both the rest of the burden that poor camel was carrying AND starved and beat the living Hell out of him so he was incapable of carrying the burden.
Fox uses the standard disclaimer that “The views expressed in this broadcast do not reflect those of NewsCorp” what a bunch of lying pukes. Fox News has spent BILLIONS of dollars ranting that this type of unfunded speculative investment could not possibly have harmed the economy. Nor that the Corporations getting welfare subsidies AND huge tax breaks, would increase the budget and double-trouble it by their obscene tax breaks.

Instead, they blame the 51% of the people who make less than $22,360 a year for a family of four and thus are at poverty level.
Or below. Couldn’t possibly be the multi-Trillion Dollar giveaways to the Rich.

The cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has recently been estimated at 1.5 Terabucks, or, for those who no speak geek, trillion dollars. That would have to ignore the at least 5 Trillion paid out to private corporations to “rebuild” Iraq and completely dismiss all the money spent on Afghanistan.
And the fact that before 1991 Iraq had the strongest economy and best infrastructure on the Arabian Peninsula, even more than the Subsidized (by us) Sovereign State of Israel. That they had more female graduates from universities per capita than anybody else on the Peninsula, that their literacy rate even now surpasses that of the United States, More female Doctors.
And that they weren’t allowed to use what money they had (which was considerable) to rebuild their country for more than a decade, based on the “They’re Developing WMDs” LIE.

They lie to us about the cause of the war, the cause of Iraq being in such poor condition, and the cost of the war coupled with paying the same Warmongering ChickenHawk Cowards like Richard Cheney who paid a lot of public money getting Iraq destroyed, to have no-bid contracts to rebuild it.

Much like they broke the unions at public expense for private profit, and put more than half of Americans into Wage Slavery and massive debt.
You can’t pay people less than it costs to live and expect anything other than massive poverty and debt.

And, Fox News, and their Parent Corporation NewsCorp, have been pushing all of that agenda for decades. They’re good at what they do, but what they do is promote the wealth of a Very Few at the expense of the Vast Majority, not only Americans but the entire world.
They’ve succeeded to the point that the scions of those Very Few don’t have to pick up arms themselves to force the Working Class around the world to work for slave wages. Because they have so many people who are willing to accept the not-much-better conditions afforded by being Hired Thugs for the Corporations and murdering and enslaving their fellow poor PEOPLE.

Hey, Be All That You Can Be. And ignore the fact that those who are urging your Murder Campaign against the other PEOPLE in the Working Class, aren’t joining the StormTroopers along with you.

If you listen to DumFox Noose and their radio affiliates, it’ll be a lot easier for you to close off whatever is left of your mind.

Gulliver’s Travels, and another treatise entitled “A Modest Proposal” were works of allegory against the continued enslavement of the people of Ireland, of which Jonathan Swift, the author, was a native.

In “A Modest Proposal” he poses the notion that the Irish could simply be raised as herd animals, selling their children as table meat for the British Wealthy Elite. Except for a few who would be kept alive long enough to breed and to perform labor until they were no longer fit to do so. Regrettably, according to Swift, those who were slaughtered after the age of 15 would not fetch as high a price in the meat market as the toddlers would, but they could be fed to the hounds of the English Master Race and perhaps to the Irish “cattle”.
And of course the young Irish girls could be sold as whores to the English until they, too, could no longer breed or were no longer attractive.
This was written in 1729 and Swift himself died in 1745, a century before the Irish Potato Famine. which had its “roots” which I just noticed is a really bad pun in the British Conquest.
And the Crown, like they and their accomplices in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, punished the Irish with capitalism.
It wasn’t that there was no food produced in Ireland, much like the vast reserves of Iraqi oil, it was that the food production had to be given to the British overlords as reparations for the cost of conquering and governing them.

The Brits kept some wonderfully careful records, detailing the number of hundreds of tons of wheat shipped out of Ireland on one page of the ledgers and on the next, the number of Irish who died of starvation.

The wealthy also, like now, blamed the Working Class for their own poverty. Some things never change.
Swift ended his treatise with the very sharply worded challenge to the British, why not actually eat the flesh of the poor literally?
As the English landlords already did so figuratively.

As for the Real Estate Speculation FOX is pushing, it’s taking advantage of the desperation of people who have already been pushed into bankruptcy by The Last Real Estate Speculation “boom economy” that the Lying Bastards at FOX pushed in exactly the same way.

People who are thinking about buying into it, please consider… The Investment Banks and their minions in the Real Estate Fraud Industry, they’ve gotten their money guaranteed them in the form of “too big to fail” bailouts. Why exactly are THEY not buying up the properties to resell, and why would they offer such an opportunity to make and take all their profit margin?

Out of the goodness of their dark,cold, nasty hearts?

Another military victory where the Poor “socialized” their blood for Capitalism

Tripoli, the site of the FIRST U.S. Military engagement to prop up capitalism, is apparently fallen, not to economic “free” market forces, but to the Armed Forces. In a book titled “Liberty Reclaimed”, often described as the libertarian bible, the statement is made and reiterated “the only substantial difference between the Soviet Union and the United States isn’t one of raw political power or the freedom of the subjects but one of economic policy.”
 
So, when the Military claimed and still claim that they were and are fighting for freedom, they’re lying. Just as the Pentagon and their contractors lie about Agent Orange, which killed Miss Johnnie’s husband and a countless number of others. Countless because the Pentagon, bowing to their Corporate Masters, denied for more than a decade that Agent Orange actually causes human death. They also have recently claimed in a lawsuit that locks out the people of VietNam from any lawsuits that the people of the Republic of VietNam (Saigon government) sprayed with A.O. (and lots of other Military hardware sold at massive profits by the Corporations who now claim a moral exemption to taxation) were enemy combatants thus not eligible for compensation for their kids being killed. Hmmm… I was told, as was everybody else in America, in Boy Scouts, at Church, in ROTC and later in the Air Force that the U.S. actions in VietNam were for the freedom of the PEOPLE in the R.V.N. Just like the lies told to justify the war in Libya. And Iraq. And Afghanistan. And Nicaragua. And Honduras. And insert the next several “dictatorships” which dare to put their own national interests above the Capitalist Powers.

Funny how the word “dictatorship” gets thrown around by the Corporate Empire, saying that scenes like this where a General in a puppet dictatorship killing a POW. OOPS.

That’s a client of the American Corporate Empire murdering a POW. Our bad. All y’all who display that ignorant POW-MIA you are not forgotten flag, putting money into John McCain’s greedy hands, remember that now, y’all hear?

In a war to prop up a supposedly “superior” economic system.

If socialism or communism were so inferior they would have fallen on their own, especially to such a massively successful “free” market system, yes? Only, it didn’t happen like that.

According to the Reagan Disciples, who worship a dead actor who never once fought for ANYTHING, the Military defeated the Soviet Union and not the Economic “superior free market”

Turns out the “free” market has been subsidized from the word go by military power, and, in the VAST majority of cases, the people holding the guns were poor people, working class, shedding their blood and the blood of other working class people for NOTHING other than the economic gain of people such as our friend Publius, who sneers at the workers and soldiers as being “stupid” for putting money in his pockets.

You hear that, soldiers, workers? The Rich Think You’re Stupid If You Give Them Your Labor, Your Lives and Those Of Other Workers… And Bitter, Angry and Filled With Rage if you merely point those facts out.

You, on the other hand, are slaves to your rage; eternal victims.

and

If you work for “slave” wages, you must not be very smart – no one is holding a gun to your head

Straight from the lying mouth Keyboard of somebody who believes it’s our Christian Duty to give our blood and our labor and 82% of what our labor is worth to our employers

I bet the Liar Publius wouldn’t dare say to, for instance, Miss Johnnie, at least not in her face, that her late husband USAF SSgt Howard Lanning owed his life and health to Publius’ Corporate WhoreMasters and that she’s “crazy with rage” or “stupid” to believe that she and her husband were and are owed compensation for that.

He died for the Military Defeat of Communism, only the country he gave his life and about 50 times what he was paid by the Air Force to subdue, is still a Communist nation. And, frankly, doing a lot better economically right now than the United States “free” market.

That “50 times” refers to uncompensated by his former employers (The Empire) health care expenses for the Agent Orange poisoning they consistently denied even after he DIED.

But, hey, it’s our Christian Duty to accept that kind of shit without any complaint, according to the Current Star Witness for the Corporate Empire.

As to the

nobody is holding a gun to your head

Tell that to Honduran Labor Leaders murdered by Corporate Death Squads who have the full support of the Corporate Pentagon.

You might wonder, why exactly did the Ohio National Guard have loaded machine guns while deliberately suppressing a student protest against the militarization of Kent State University and thus blew away 4 young AMERICANS…

It was because earlier that day they were deployed to try to Intimidate Union Workers who were using their rights as AMERICANS to bargain for fair wages and working conditions.

There, Publius and other Right Wing Slaves, there is the “gun that nobody is holding to our head”.

The Right Wing trolls are selling out their Fellow AMERICANS to their own Corporate Masters, for what? Money? How much, Publius, do you get paid to troll? More than or less than those who say they’re soldiers on active duty who troll our blog to tell us they’re really fighting for freedom and democracy… and have IP addresses that show them to be in some place like Topeka or Omaha and even then not on any Military Base.

Tell us, do tell, Publius and other Trolls, how much do you get paid to lie for your masters?

The “stars” of your Lie For Pay movement, Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly, got paid a billion and a half so far to sell their fellow AMERICANS into slavery and death. Death in the Armed Forces which they never had the courage to join, themselves. Just like other professional Liars/slash/Warmongers like John Wayne and Ronald Reagan.

I strongly suspect that the Professional Trolls never once laid hand to the shovel, nor placed themselves in peril of their own lives for the “freedom” of their Masters.

The freedom to use Public Funds to bankrupt America in order to enslave people around the world, and not pay taxes.

Local Paper headline:”Ft Carson Boys died while Afghan Army Hiding”

Meaning, the Afghans who have a LOT more experience with this sort of things keep their heads down while being shot at. So, since all I saw was the headline I wonder if the Yellow Journalists at the Gag-Zette took that into account, mentioning perhaps that going John Wayne on people who are shooting at you gets you killed faster? I bet not, though. I bet it’s a slam against those “ungrateful heathens” not appreciating being Slaughtered in drone strikes, police state home invasion actions and general mayhem associated with being an invaded but not yet conquered state errr I mean “Liberated”.
Why, that ingrateKarzhai actually meekly requesting that the Chair Force stop bombing the living dogshit out of the citizens he allegedly represents, How Dare He? (For about a half hour it looked like he was) standing up to his Lord High Masters at the Pentagon and State Department?
Maybe he better learn the lessons of Mannie Noriega and other Puppets who tried to cut their strings.
As to the myth the Warmongers still insist on putting out, no… no… not a “myth” but since they know it’s not true, an Outright Lie, that the soldiers are there fighting for the Afghan people… Bullshit. They’re not even fighting for the AMERICAN people, they’re fighting for “American” hegemony, economic dominance, preeminence and supremacy, in which they themselves, like the vast majority of Americans, just ain’t gonna share. The BigPigs at British Petroleum will, not that they’re Americans.
Wikileaks did their famous number, what they’re really good at doing, with diplomatic messages between then-head of Britain’s Foreign Ministry Gordon Brown and fellow BP’er and BushPoodle Blair, while the Bu/ush Regime were still saying it had nothing to do with oil or the Project for the New American Century, citing concerns that they (British Petroleum, not the British and certainly not the Iraqi People) “got their fair share of Iraqi Oil” in exchange for selling the lives and fortunes of their countrymen. Judas and Judas, the Iscariot brothers, haggling over the Thirty Pieces.
And, lying through their pristine expensively maintained dental work about “weapons of Mass Destruction” and a “probable link to 9/11”
