US Made War Zone – Ciudad Juarez

There is a recently made video that examines in a very balanced manner, the Mexican elections as seen from the viewpoint of the people living in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua- US made war zone. It is very informative and well worth the time watching this 20min film… THE FEMALE JOURNALISTS OF JUAREZ. One has to ask why is it that the US can run this ‘drug war’ inside Mexico from right out here in NORTHCOM command center, Colorado Springs, and nobody in Colorado Springs knows anything about it? Why? And where are our tough, hard hitting local journalists from The Gazette and The Independent? They’re both missing the big story. In fact, they have utterly failed to keep us Colorado citizens informed.

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.

…In other words, he says many of them committed war crimes, though I doubt he said as much when he still worked for that trashy, militarism adoring Right Wing newspaper, The Colorado Springs Gazette. I’m glad that David Philipps is now no longer chained to such a propaganda rag and is helping expose the Pentagon’s war criminality. Hooray for great reporters like David Philipps!

The book will be released in early April. See Amazon reviews of Lethal Warriors: When the New Band of Brothers Came Home

Note also, that at this event that Reporter David Philipps spoke at about his new book was actually organized by the Pueblo Veterans for Peace. Not all veterans are Right Wing murderous thugs like the ones who have been threatening me and other members of the Occupy Colorado Springs group with personal acts of violence. These are the actual vets that help defend our right to Free Speech, but they defend that Right not with their guns, but their willingness to expose what US soldiers actually do throughout the world. These antiwar veterans deserve our total respect, while those who continue to be pro war soldiers only deserve our exposure of their war crimes, and exposure of their personal low life criminal mindset.
