Prince Harry displays British hypocracy to uneducated Colorado warmongers

Prince HarryWant to know where you can find Prince Harry on his war cheerleading US tour? Half of it is in Colorado. On Friday he’ll be at a UK Consul-General’s reception at the private Sanctuary Golf Course in Sedalia. Between Denver and Castle Rock, that’s the Castle Pines exit off of I-25. He’s staying overnight in Colorado Springs and leads the opening ceremonies of the Warrior Games at the US Olympic Training Center at Union and Uintah. He concludes his Colorado visit on Sunday at the Air Force Academy on Sunday before flying east for a polo match. How unseemly for American media to be fawning over a British royal, and what a slap in the face for Colorado Springs Tea Partiers, if they weren’t so uniformly stupid, to celebrate a monarch for which they claim so much credit for having expelled. Nathan Hale would have hung a second time and a third and forth presumably to have had the chance to show smug twits like Prince Harry the door. Harry pretends to continue the work of his mother Lady Diana, ridding the world of land mines, yet how much credit does he get when he advocates for their root cause, war?

Land mines, IEDs & children as soldiers

OOOH… Just by a Bizarre co-inky-dink, Helmand province is the one closest to Iran. Not ONE major city in the whole place. Not a Rich Area.

The Army also put out a report of a U.S. soldier being killed by an Improvised Explosive Device. His job?

MURDERING PEOPLE WITH EXPLOSIVE DEVICES.

He was a mortar gunner. The IED that killed him was more than likely made from either an American or Soviet Mortar.

The unexploded ordnance is a high-value salvage item.

It also kills farmers in their fields, especially the kids because they don’t know better, yet.

There’s also the mines set by the Soviets and even some ancient hardware set by the British available. Also which target KIDS more than anybody else.

The land mines that the U.S. refuses to sign on to a comprehensive and enforceable Ban thereof. Because killing KIDS is less expensive.

The U.S., under the direction of Reagan, Bush the Elder and Bush the Incredibly Obtuse, also kept refusing to ratify in Security council, actually using their Arbitrary Veto Power to keep it from being ratified, not only the Land Mines treaty but also the ban on Child Soldiers.

One of the U.S. ambassadors to the U.N., Shirley “Curly Shirley” Temple Black, former Child Star, explained that having a ban on Children as soldiers would mean the Army wouldn’t be able to recruit in High Schools (They’ve also been putting their recruiters on Middle School and Elementary School campus, and at every Child oriented public event that catches their nasty attention) that JROTC, Young Marines, and even Scouting would be banned because, in the words of the Former Child Star, they’re Paramilitary Groups.

All this “one-off” TARGETING of American kids is just a sick reflection of the targeting of children in Afghanistan, Iraq, and now, if the War Pigs have their way, Iran.

Sure, they’ll get some grown ups too, and some of them will be armed.

Armed with weapons provided by United States weapons corporations, who are by another Bizarre Co-inky-dink the major beneficiaries of the Generosity of the Pentagoons.

Don’t make me break out the pictures of kids with their legs arms and faces blown off by American firepower.

The “difference” between an IED and a land-mine

Is the difference between a Militia Group (like those commanded by Washington) and the VietMinh or the Taliban “Insurgents” A matter of Semantic Perspective that’s vital to propagandists, espicially if the Propagandists don’t have anything better.
It’s the so-called “difference” between “conqueror” and “liberator” ,
USAF Bomber v Suicide Bomber
Decapitation with a sword and decapitation with a .50 caliber round fired frim a Vulcan electric motorized Gatling gun.

Waterboarding as War Crime when practiced by the Imperial Japanese Army and waterboarding as “enhanced interrogation” when done by the Imperial American USMC, CIA and DHS.

Tianmen Square and the Boston “massacre” or the Honduran “counterinsurgency”.

The Anschluss and “Regime Change”.

Genocide against European minority groups and Genocide against American Indians.

The list goes on, but the main difference is that Land Mines are forbidden for deployment and the Terrorist States who deployed them mandated to clean them out, destroy them and compensate the Mostly Civilian Child victims of their monstrous use (or their families).

In a treaty that the former ChickenHawk President refused to sign on the ridiculous notion that it violated U.S. Sovereignty…. even though the United States doesn’t actually deploy land mines or, (as in the case of the terroristic bombing and mining of The DR VietNam, which one of the Major Party presidential candidates from the last election was doing when he was captured) on territory that’s recognized as United States Territory.

Other than in the Insane Delusional definitions of the U.S. “nationalists” like Bush and his demented disciples. (Special “shout out” to our Homeboys Bob Newman, Dobson and Haggard on that)

There are two major parties in our Corporate Dictatorship, one votes as a bloc, no exceptions, and anybody who breaks ranks is called a traitor and shown the door. The “Other Party” currently in the majority in the House, Senate and Executive branch has enough Right Wing extremists, only the Republican Press calls them “moderate democrats” to sway any ratification of the treaty to either vote it down, or have it watered down to a Null Argument, or worse, charge the Children of Afghanistan and VietNam with crimes for destroying United States Government Property by exploding “our” Land Mines.

I bet Dobson and Haggard and “Gunny” Bob would love that option.
They probably have pictures of little kids with various parts blown off that they use for Porn. “Gunny” Bob is allegedly a Vet, I don’t know if he has a collection of human hands harvested from the kids he killed during his “service” but he strikes me as That Type.

Yeah, that’s confrontational. So is calling the Quakers “Terrorists” because they dared to ask His Royal Lowness to stop lying, and published detailed lists of “Gunny” Bobs lies.

A paid Right Wing Propagandist like him would appreciate the “Difference” between a Land Mine and an IED.
