Tag Archives: War Crimes

As was long suspected, then reported, and the reporters mocked..

Like when Dr Laura’s son was using MySpace to boast of war crimes in which he participated or fantasized about committing, denounced by Ms. Schlesinger and others on the RightWing Lunatic Fringe as being “hacked” onto his account… along with his bits about worshiping Satan…
But now it appears there are still more stories coming out of VietRaqiStan of soldiers, good old Red–blooded American Boy Scouts, killing for nothing more than the fun of doing it. But it’s true patriot Bradley Manning who’s facing a Life Sentence for exposing it, not any of the Murderers. Had there been no war crimes to expose there would have been no exposure.

But of course, telling impressionable very young adults, older children actually, that killing is necessary, and fun, training them to do it effectively and to ENJOY the thrill of putting a gun to somebody’s head and removing his brain from the skull violently, some way, somehow, would NOT and could not possibly lead to some of them doing it for fun. Especially since the normal Rules of Engagement, the Geneva and Hague Conventions, and the laws both of the United States and the UCMJ (at least the ones which prohibit Murder and other deliberate War Crimes) circumvented by a presidential executive order of non-prosecution, that wouldn’t lead anybody to do what they’re commanded to do and allowed to do.

Laissez-Faire in the battlefield would work just as splendidly as laissez faire in the Marketplace.

Well, I’ll concede they’ve had equivalent results. Especially as the former is done to promote the latter. Soon, if the Capitalist BigPigs get anything approaching Victory in Afghanistan, they’ll be using the same Killers and the same Killer Methods to indoctrinate Americans into the subservience they demand of Afghans, and Iraqis, and Guatemalans, and Costa Riquenses, and Panamanians, and anyone else living under the “enforced liberty” of the Free Market, backed by Military might if the people object to being treated as “free” market slaves.

They already do it at Union actions. Either the Military or the Deputized Constabulary PIGS show up with guns to intimidate the workers to get back in Corporate Line.
De Oppresso Liber, Ad Oppresso Ultimo.
Which unless my Latin is WRONG that would be the Greenie-Beanie Motto “free from oppression” with “unto greater oppression”. Kiss it, SF. It’s what you really stand for.

That’s right, boys, make your Mommas real proud.
Just like Dr Lauras son did.

Self-contradictory positions taken by TeaBag and Radical Republicans

The list is massive, their own anti-American Terrorist threats in relation to voting rights, civil rights, racism, hate-speech against Muslims, hate-speech inspired attacks against Muslims and other religious, racial, social, or cultural groups and individuals… Oh, and the constant use of Massive Conspiracy theories of their own to denounce “conspiracy theories” like the questions raised over RepubliKlan and TeaBags rigging either the initial attacks on 9/11 directly, rigging the public response to those attacks for the profit of their Warmongering Corporate Leaders, and D) All of the Above.
Let’s jump right in with Voting Rights, in Houston, one of the major cities in the Exxon Protectorate Territory of Texas. According to TeaBag-RepubliKlan legend, so “Red” that only Massive Commie Infiltration could have thwarted their machinations.

A group called True the Vote is insisting that the 70 million to 48 million vote spanking they took in the last election wasn’t an adverse reaction to Race Baiting on the part of their Terrorist Candidates McCain, Palin and others further down the ticket all the way to elections for Dogcatcher. OK so the dogcatcher election is an old hyperbole, maybe City Council would be more appropriate. AND they’re calling for Armed Poll Watchers… Millions of Armed Poll Watchers. Which was IS Klan terrorism technique used to skew elections. Particularly elections for such positions as County Clerk and Recorder, or similarly positioned Election Oversight officials in different jurisdictions.

Like the ones the Right Wing Hate Freaks controlled in so much of the nation 2 years ago that they were confident of cruising to victory with plenty to spare.
But with a Republican Machine that rivals the Soviet system in reach and the Tammany Hall Machine in tactics, in place nationwide, there’s a 22 MILLION vote difference + another 5 million or so they thought would give them an easy victory.
So they come up with a Conspiracy Theory that’s an order of magnitude more convoluted than the JFK Assassination theories and 9/11 theories and the whole “I saw Elvis in a UFO” range of theories combined.

While alternately condemning as treason or mocking as trivial and irrelevant any questions of just how much political and financial advantage their Parent Corporations gained by the 9/11 attacks.

Which is it, TeaBags, (local shout out to Michelle Malkin, Dan Maes, Tancredo, Gunny Bob) Treason, or insignificant rants of lunatics? Cause, cousins, y’all seem to have a Nationwide Lock on Loonie. Seriously.

Then they spin that into their Mosque Mania and terroristic Hate Speech and Hate Actions against Muslims and anybody else they think of as being Not White or Christian Enough To Be Considered Real Americans, according to their Hate Speech Real Loonie Leader Sarah Palin.

Their level of Violent Hatred has already caused American Deaths directly within the confines of the United States, attacks on Religious and Cultural Institutions such as the Murfreesboro Islamic Cultural Center torched in Tennessee last week, The Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church attacked at the urging of TeaBag Leaders at FOX Networks and Clear Channel, with two dead, the similarly FOX Hate-speech inspired Murder of a doctor in Church, the FOX inspired attack on the Holocaust Museum with one dead, the FOX Hate Speech inspired murder of Raul and Briseña Flores, the Lynching in Clay County, Kentucky (where the term “lynching” originated BTW) of a census worker Bill Sparkman, done after FOX News and the TeaParty organization had spent weeks urging just such actions, but the TeaParty controlled Kentucky State Police have “proved” that it wasn’t a lynching even though Sparkman was bound and gagged before Being Hanged errr… “committing suicide”.

They’ve further spent a few hundred thousand words on this website alone denouncing Wikileaks for publishing the evidence, which the Military confirms as truth, as Treason.

Which, considering the violent mood already established in the TeaBag Moron Wannabee Terrorists means a Death Sentence if they catch somebody out alone like they did Sparkman.

The Military has been steadily lying to us, as the more Officially Sanctioned arbiters of the Right Wing Story, constantly, as demonstrated by the Wikileaks release of information the Army contradicted BEFORE publication, that they weren’t targeting civilians, weren’t committing other War Crimes, and, due to the huge number both of Muslim American Soldiers and soldiers of their NATO and Arabic and Pakistani and Afghan allies (puppet dictators propped up by U.S. Military actions) they adopted the lie that they weren’t fighting against Islam.

Which the TeaBags are now demonstrating to be Lies with their offer to burn the Qu’ran on the 9/11 anniversary this weekend.

Actions which are sure to show up the LIES they and their leaders, particularly the Military Leaders who they Worship as some kind of Idolatrous War gods, have been telling for the past 9 years.

And place American soldiers in danger. Guess it doesn’t matter to demagogues like Glenn Beck, Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Michelle Malkin, O’Reilly, Dr Laura, Dan Maes, Don Blankenship… because they’re not the ones who are in the line of fire, nobody in Afghanistan or the (still occupied) Iraq Puppet Dictatorships is going to put a bullet or IED through THEIR Fat, Porky Collective Ass or Smug Piggy Faces.

However, the vast number of GIs they screwed over for the past 9 years, the ones who have killed and died to line the pockets of the Right Wing Hate Speech Stars,

And the huge number of American blacks, hispanics, Native Americans, Muslims, Jews, Christians, the list goes on and on and on… many of them poor, and thus far more likely to have been in the Military Death Machine themselves and also have relatives in the Military Death Machine…

The ones who have relatives like Briseña Flores age 9, or her father, convicted after their deaths by TeaBag Racist Liars as being criminals… who have been shot down or hunted down, beaten down and locked down in the Racist Penitentiary System for the crime of not being Lily White English Protestants,
Young Briseña and Oscar Grant and Etta Collins are just the face of it, because the TeaBags can’t even see ONE face as human, if it’s on the front of the head of somebody they’ve determined to be Subhuman, far less the hundreds and hundred thousands of their victims HERE and in the Foreign Lands the Warlord Masters of the TeaBag have occupied….

Terrorism begets terrorism, Violence begets violence, the TeaBags and RepubliKlan Parties seek to launch a war here in America that will consume their Amateur so-called “revolutionaries” first.

By the purest interpretations of “what goes around comes back around” some of their victims or more likely relatives of their victims will take up the gun against THEM.

“we convict them on the front page”

And the appeals are on the back page. That was something actually said by a Dallas County District Attorney in relation to having convicted a Spanish-American citizen for “dealing crack” and the so-called evidence turned out to be ground up wallboard. Gypsum. CHALK. When the Appeals Court overturned the Conviction, they kept the guy in prison for two more years while the Dallas DA first appealed the Appeal and then tried to fabricate new “evidence”.
This practice is alive and well.
It’s being used to try to whitewash the Pentagoons persecution of WikiLeaks with release to a Swedish Newspaper the disinformation about Assange being charged with rape. Something the Swedish police dropped, turned their backs and walked away from it.

So now the Pentagon can say, Sure, we “inadvertently” committed torture, murder and other war crimes, constantly and without any remorse, but, hey, Assange was falsely charged with rape so that makes OUR crimes disappear!

They shoot up churches, bomb mosques, and soon this…

Not the bombing of “Radical” Synagogues who oppose the non-genocide-but-enforced-enslavement-of-Arabs, through the use of many many instances of Murder, no, the IDF will take care of THAT part…

This is about Guam, “liberated” by the U.S. from the Empire of Japan. (and British, Australian, Nationalist and Communist Chinese, VietMinh and a few hundred other groups who took part in the “American” operations against Japan) And one of the Native Churches there. Why not call it a church?

Well, to the Reich Wing that appellation only belongs, and in a limited sense, to Christian and Jewish places of worship. They’ve already sent one of their “Mad Dog/Lone Wolf” operatives into an American CHURCH in Knoxville Tennessee, still awaiting trial… spurred on by Anti-Peace Activists at Fox News and other pro-war, pro-paganda outlets.

This is about a site on Guam, Pagal. Much like our own Garden of the Gods, or like Hueco Tanks, one OTHER site the U.S. Cavalry has its nasty little piggy eyes on, or the Great Wheel at Standing Bear Butte… Just like the Army enforced laws forbidding Native Americans to practice our customs, sometimes as with the Colorado and Utah statutes against Ute “witchcraft”. Or the Ghost Dance. Or the Medicine Council that Custer tried to break up forcibly at the Little Bighorn…

Carrying on the PROUD tradition of the Army not giving three shits about the customs of the people they “liberated” and instead feeling revulsion and scorn toward any who dare to not be GRATEFUL for their Overlordship errr… Liberation On A Leash…

This is a direct quoted reprint from Fellow Peace-man Bruce Gagnon.

Pagat, a sacred site in Guam, has served as a center for the communal revitalization of the indigenous Chamorro people for millennia. Now, sixty-five years after the U.S. liberation of the tiny island (half the size of Okinawa) from imperial Japan—the U.S. military wants to transform this beloved gathering spot into a firing range. This threat to the sacred is one of many U.S. plans in its proposal to militarize even more of Guam, 30% of which is already covered with military bases.

For more info on Guam organizing look HERE

I swear by the Lord God who made us all that if there weren’t so many War Contractors living nearby the WarPigs at Ft Carson would turn Garden of the Gods or downtown Colorado Springs into a firing range. Might as well, they dump their Toxic Waste from their existing firing ranges, including the Depleted Uranium shells they’ve devastated Iraq with, into our water supply, with no apologies.

Meanwhile, at the D.C. Pig-Ranch….

The Pentagoons, meanwhile back in DC, are expecting another 37 BILLION dollars to fall into their pockets. Telling the Senate House, it got kicked back to the House after modifications by the Senate, that not giving them more of their Purina PIG Chow would be treason and the betrayal of “the Troops” about whom the Pentagon and other warmongers care Not One Damned Bit in the first, second, third and all the way to the Last place.
The Senate House vote is expected by this afternoon, and it’s already almost noon in Washing Tundy Sea. Will the Senate do the patriotic thing, for the first time in like, forever?
Or will they do what the War Industry Lobbyists pay them to do and fork over more bread?
My prediction is that the Manufacturers of guns, bullets, grenades, rockets, trench-knives, uniforms, shrouds, coffins and Funerary Flags are going to be treating their Tame SenatorsRepresentatives to steak and lobster dinners tonight.
Meanwhile the TeaBags are out screaming about proposed increases in Health Care and more oversight of the Banking and Investment “industries”, neither of which has actually taken place yet. But not one word against the War.

Hardly surprising, as Silly Sarah had made it plain during the last election that she feels God Himself is leading the “war on terror”. Other TeaBag leaders agree, meanwhile providing cover with their Childish Street Tantrums for “supplemental” bills such as the one the House is about to pass. Our very own Tame Pigs like Douglas Lamborn already passed a “supplement” that was $4 billion more than the new figure, 33 Gigabux as compared to the earlier 37.
“Fiscal Conservatives” my left ass cheek.

Pentagon and State Dept Call leaked information Crimes

Just, you know, not the CRIMES committed by their agents and soldiers, it’s the revelation of those Crimes that’s ‘criminal’.
No word yet on any prosecution against the Rove-Bush Kartel for making false statements that have directly led to the deaths of thousands of United States servicemen (each one a capital offense, according the the Bush Doctrine) and a literally uncounted number of Afghan and Iraqi civilians. Although the Wikileaks reports did add a substantial number to that count.
No, the people who told massive lies to support starting and continuing the Mass Murder Campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, they’re not the subject of the Criminal Investigation, run in large part by Investigators who ARE Criminals.
It’s once again come down to prosecuting people for telling the Truth.

And it will be called “propaganda” that we report this…

Bruce Gagnon, an activist from Bath, Maine, posted this one. The video is from a project called Brave New Films. watch?v=eUvAFx31zCE

U.S. forces in Afghanistan kill a 92 year old man in his bed. Shoot him 25 times.

Your money at work making us all safe back home – bringing us freedom and democracy.

Liberty…..and all that rot.

It would not make three shits if it was the Marines, the Army, which battalion/brigade/regiment, if it was Special Forces or Rangers or the Denver Police or the freakin’ Boy Scouts. Although the nitpickers will want to do what they do best to try to discredit this.

By the way, the Denver Police DID something like this in the summer of 2004. Shot a paralyzed man in his bed because his hand twitched. They were looking for his nephew who had already left the house. Then the PIGS charged the nephew with THEIR murder because he wasn’t there.
The logic was “If you’re not where we expect you to be we get to off any of your relatives and charge YOU with our crime”.
Like when the Detroit PIGS murdered Alyanna Jones, age 7, shooting into her apartment.

And the nitpickers, the ones who say that a murdered 92 year old, a murdered 7 year old, a murdered 50 year old who’s paralyzed, a murdered grandmother/grandfather/infant/several people or several dozen people, they don’t count unless you can identify clearly, pick out from a lineup, exactly which Uniformed Masked Thug it was who pulled the trigger. You also have to know the exact name of his unit and where each team member grew up, the names of their third grade teachers’ Maiden Aunts and what their Yahoo mail password reminders are.
The “unidentifiable and therefore not guilty” Alleged Soldiers who Allegedly killed the 92 year old man in his bed, who is also only Allegedly Dead, had members of their Alleged Death Squad standing in the courtyard Allegedly holding the three young grandchildren, hands allegedly bound behind their Alleged backs and with Alleged sacks over their Alleged heads.
Smacking and kicking them.
Allegedly, Torture Freak PIGS like beating up on people who are Allegedly bound and helpless. Allegedly if the Alleged Victims are Alleged Children it Alleged makes them feel even more Alleged Powerful and of course Sexually Aroused. Yeah, I DID compare that to Child Rape. When one of the Alleged Children said “Grandpa can’t hear, let one of us get him to wake up for you” they kicked him again. Then busted in the door and shot the REAL man 25 times because he wasn’t getting up fast enough to suit their Piggy tastes.
Besides, the 92 year old man committed “Suicide by Cop” by not getting up when the Pig Invaders told him to do so.

I’ve seen such behavior from their Stateside Police State Comrades on more than one occasion, but the nitpickers won’t believe that.
You have to provide more information than humanly possible, usually from within a jail cell with absolutely no contact with anybody from the outside. Otherwise, it just don’t count.

Meanwhile Spc. Bradley Manning is in a military Dungeon in Iraq facing 60 years or until his Marine or Army M.P. Guards murder him whichever comes first.

For not, in a sheeplike manner, going along with the Military Mantra that “I didn’t do it, nobody saw me do it and you can’t prove that I did it”.
For actually PROVING the allegations of a similar murder-spree.
They demand proof then imprison anybody who provides that proof.

Four legs Good, two legs BAAAAAAAAAAD. Comrade Napoleon is Always Right.
Finally, in other news, Oceania has ALWAYS been at war with Eastasia.
And they really ARE fighting for our freedom to say these things, just ask any one of the Pigloving Back-the-Badge/Support the Troops SUCKS.

Two “american civilians” killed at firing range in Afghanistan

And two Afghans. The “american civilians” is a code routine which means “Blackwater or Equivalent Mercenary Thugs who might or might not actually even be americans”. So much for those “civilians” carrying guns and wearing uniforms and training other murderers how to do it.
Now, how about the 120 REAL civilians, Afghans, mostly CHILDREN, murdered at Granai by United States Uniformed Military who were then given a free pass on any prosecution for their crimes? Or the ONE U.S. Soldier who is currently in a Military Prison in Iraq for exposing not just the MURDERS, of which the Afghan people were fully aware, but the LIES told by the U.S. Military to justify those MURDERS?

I realize this will probably draw the “really intelligent” comments such as “you’re criticizing the actions of warriors even though you’re not a warrior” which is MilitarySpeak for “Hey, the only people who are entitled to question the actions of Paid Killers are Other Paid Killers”.

It’s exactly like saying “The only people who should be allowed to be on a jury in a murder trial are Mafia Hit-men”.

By the way, it’s not “criticizing” it’s pointing out the CRIMES committed in OUR NAMES using OUR MONEY while robbing the victims of THEIR crime for the benefit of a FEW RICH BITCHES who don’t bother paying so much as the taxes on their blood money.

What, if we refrained from mentioning any of this, it would all magically go away, and we’d all be able to wallow in a “feel good happy happy flag-waving patriotism” and salute the Empire as it falls, dragging our nation down with it?

Ska-roo that noise, bubbas. I know that for every one that writes it out there’s a hundred who are thinking it. Stupid bastards, the lot of them.

Your wars and other crimes tear down America and just in a bizarre Co Inky Dink the rest of the world as well. It’s not “patriotism” blind or otherwise to stand and cheer for the destruction of America and the rest of the world.

Nor would it be “patriotism” to say nothing, to keep silent about such actions.

Store-bought patriotism and the futility of trying to shame the shameless

If you want the image in full-size, it’s more than 1400×800. See, I’m not a flag-waver. I DO however know at least Some of the flag code. One is that you’re only supposed to display a flag in an environment consistent with the design. That does NOT include displaying a cloth flag from a Motorized Vehicle.

The stress from the slipstream-wind will rip it, fray it and eventually break it off. One excuse the faux-patriot, real jackoff had for not retrieving his $1.93 WalMart special store bought “patriotism” might have been that it was lost in the rain. Which is TWO violations for the price of one. Maybe he has one of the Zero Tolerance jobs where the boss would fire him if he took the couple of minutes to stop, retrieve his Fake Patriotism and was thus two minutes late.Who knows? I found one buried half way in Mud at the entrance to the Employee Parking Lot at Bell-Textron in Ft Worth, where all these Super Fakeriots who made their living off other people dying, (war industry) passed it by every day for a week. One I found in Woodland Park in a ratt’s nest alongside 24.

And knowing FULL WELL that these same Jackoffs would wave it in my face and try to shame me by their fake display of even faker patriotism, because I don’t support their war.

There’s a phrase, “war of convenience”, how about a “patriotism of convenience”? Grow some REAL patriotism. Stand up to the Warmongering freaks who are dragging America into the same muddy ditch I found the flag in today.

A flag is for one purpose, to allow your comrades to know where you are and not fire on your position. That’s why they came into existence. Some flags are designated as “all weather”. If you’re in a forward post and need your flag to identify your position, day and night and in all weather, that’s what you use. Ships at Sea don’t even strike their colors when they make port. In Maritime Law you’re required to fly a flag designating which nation holds the registration of the ship.

I know it’s impossible to get further from a shore or other national boundary in America than Colorado Springs. Actually Salinas Kansas. If somebody has made it all the way to Colorado Springs and still doesn’t realize he’s in the U.S. is too stupid to educate, and no amount of flag waving is going to do him any good.

I don’t say the idolatrous pledge of allegiance, an oath to a graven image, part of it being “one nation under God” meaning they’re blaming GOD for their war crimes.

Swiss refuse to hand over Polanski, US upset, still haven’t handed over Bush

Not trying to minimalize or trivialize date-rape or child molesting, but that’s ONE count against Mr Polanski and (at least) Hundreds of Thousands of counts of Murder, including and especially children, against Messieurs Bush, Cheney, Rove, Petraeus, McChrystal, Rumsfeld, Prince, McCain, Kristol, “scooter” Libby, Murdoch, O’Reilly, Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Dobbs, Mesdames Rice, Malkin, Palin, Bachmann, Coulter and any other Accomplices in the Wars started with, enabled by and continued under the auspices of, blatant acts of Perjury.
The charges of War Crimes against these “leaders” and propagandists are consistent with United States policies as expressed during the Nunrberg Trials against officials of the nation of Deutschland and the Vichy Government of France (which had been diplomatically recognized by the U.S.) and “collaborators” including and especially Propagandists, such as Axis Annie, Tokyo Rose and Lord Haw-Haw.

Also recognized precedent, in U.S. RECENT history, every single person detained under the vague charge of “unlawful combatant” including those “arrested” in nations with which the United States has no formal extradition treaties nor, indeed, official recognition of their governments as being legitimate. Messieurs Bush and Cheney identified (vaguely) 60 foreign governments who they felt obliged to subject to the same levels of “regime change” imposed on the People of Iraq and Afghanistan. Tit for Tat.

What goes around comes back around. When the U.S. “justice” department extradites War Criminals to the Hague, which unlike the Guantanamo Military Kangaroo Tribunals, does NOT have the Death Penalty, then and only then would they even begin to have a legitimate cause for their Crybaby-ass Whining about those bad ol’ Europeans not extraditing to the U.S. Concentration Camp/Slave Labor “justice” System.

Nationalism explicitly grants sovereignty equally to ALL nations, excluding ANY other nation from that right is not Nationalism, but Imperialism.

Under quite a few treaties signed and ratified by the United States Congress and several Presidents, including the U.N. Charter, the Hague Conventions and Geneva Conventions,

THIS IS ESPECIALLY AIMED TOWARD THE REPUBLICAN, TEABAG, DOMINIONIST, STATE’S RIGHTS AND OTHER DOUCHEBAG PARTIES who believe they and they alone can interpret the Constitution of the United States, or impose their so-called authority onto other Citizens of the United States or especially onto citizens in Other Nations

Article 6 of the Constitution states in the second sentence:

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

Bet Glenn Beck University never told you punks THAT, did he? Or Limbaugh or Michael “the savage” Weiner or Hannity… Did they?
Pat Robertson, maybe? No?

there seem to be a few people who have missed this point…

Now, these pictures represent the actuality of the “Fighting for Freedom of Speech and other Rights” that our noble and glorious Military and Police do. These scenes, the one where the cop has an elderly gentleman in a choke-hold, an ILLEGAL chokehold which the Cop denied, despite the fact that the victim is a prominent member of the Community, well, that one was from when our C.S. Gestapo Department assaulted seven members of a group who legally entered a Parade three years ago. Paid “free” speech.

One of our number, now gone, Elizabeth Fineron, was dragged from the Bookmobile, our only motorized vehicle in the parade, because she couldn’t get out fast enough to please the Pigs errr… “Freedom Fighters” (they DO fight freedom every time it rears its head.) She was then arrested after supposedly dropping the “eff” word. “Fascist” but that’s not the one the Bootlicking Pig Apologists cite.

By the time the Freedom Fighters attacked Elizabeth, however, their Fascist Forces were already in full-on attack mode. Not to worry, though, oh ye Defenders of Pig Control Freak Tactics, somewhere in there, while the Pigs were already attacking, some witness or witnesses heard the “eff” word, so that makes it all better. Their very action of stopping the entry from participating in the parade, long before the Alleged Use of The Eff Word, was a criminal assault and a planned, deliberate denial of our rights as citizens.

But of course, the Cops and the Military Personnel both in the parade and among the spectators, they were “defending” our Right of Free Speech, which only applies, of course, if that Free Speech agrees with what our Masters tell us we can say.

And in a lovely twist of logic, they’re exporting this same “freedom” to other countries, countries which just happen to have mineral wealth or strategic geographic positions which Our Beloved Rulers want to exploit for their Private Gain, at Public Expense. And, of course, the fact that the entry in the Parade called notice to the illegality of such actions. The line of Heavily Armored and Armed Uniformed Thugs in the second picture are poised to do the same thing to Other Citizens who dare to use Free Speech and Freedom to Assemble in defiance of their Corporate Masters.

Yet, SOME WILL CLAIM that this is done in defense of Freedom and not very gently chide us for saying otherwise.

Rules of Engagement being changed to “protect” Americans.

Or something like that. I used to hear, growing up in El Paso, that the ROE were handcuffing “Our Boys” in VietNam. Same way the cops say that having to respect people’s rights would tie their hands behind their backs. Like, how would they know? They’ve never actually tried respecting people or their rights. But we’ve seen the pictures, over and over, a weeping mother holding her slain child for the last time… the faces are different, but the soul of that mother multiplied over all the times the ROE were disregarded either for matters of convenience (although the cops or soldiers would never admit that) or for the “safety” of one or more of the Invaders or Police State Storm Troopers domestically, backfires against the trigger pullers.

Or their comrades. Or the sons and grandsons of their comrades when they face the families of their fathers’ and grandfathers’ Victims. That “crazy” suicide bomber with the nine pounds of dynamite strapped to his chest in front of the BX or in a bar habituated by Americans is probably the son or brother of one of those slain infants, held in their mothers arms for the final time.

The person who “signs” his speeding ticked with a “shotgun Ambush” might be the brother or sister or father or son of somebody like Alyanna Jones, the 7 year old kid murdered by the Detroit Po-Po or Etta Collins, the 87 year old grandmother MURDERED through her front door by the Dallas Police in South Oak Cliff more than two decades ago. The same with the victims of soldiers ignoring the ROE.

The “safety” it might have bought them would be temporary. There are still people in the Arabian Peninsula celebrating long ago violations of the ROE (on all sides, too) such as Richard Couer de Leon almost a thousand years ago. And incidents farther back.

The Rules of Engagement and other manifestations of civil behavior aren’t there only and exclusively for the protection of the people who are on the receiving end of your gun-muzzles.
They protect your comrades now, and comrades to come, in generations you’ll never live to see anyway.
Violating them will breed implacable enemies. Ones who will be loathe to surrender to the descendants of your Empire.

Wikileaks has video of Granai Massacre

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is officially a wanted man. After the arrest of whistleblower Bradley Manning for leaking the Collateral Murder video, the Pentagon announced it is hunting Assange “to talk to him” about 260,000 diplomatic cables which Army Specialist Manning is purported to have passed along as well. Appealing for fans to create Wikileak support groups worldwide, Assange confirmed possession of sensitive material to which he could only allude earlier: the US military’s own video of the “Garani Massacre” (sic), its 2009 airstrike and coverup of the killing of over 140 Afghan civilians, most of them children. Within hours, the claim and Assange’s appeal, were removed from the Wikileaks website.

Assange’s announcement has been propagated by journalists in the Wikileaks email circle, but strangely the call for creating a network of support groups, “Friends of Wikileaks is being given no traction.

The hasty typo of “Garani,” uncorrected, doesn’t serve the cause either. As a keyword, Garani brings up only Assange’s recent Tweet. All news references of the original incident are indexed under “Granai.” Or of course Julian Assange’s earlier codeword, Project G.

That the media is so casual about describing the Wikileaks founder as subject of an “international manhunt” is unfortunately disarming. Assange has had to cancel an appearance in Las Vegas, and a later keynote engagement for 2600 in NYC. Oh hw funny. Pentagon Papers whisleblower Daniel Ellsberg is warning the Assange is facing very real danger of rendition, interrogation, disappearance, even assassination by US drone. The excitement builds?

You can do more than watch Assange dodge missile strikes like Flash Osama. Contact Wikileaks about enlisting as friend or supporter, not just spectator.

Below is the original email from Julian Assange:

WikiLeaks may be under attack.

You were generous enough to write to us, but we have not had the labor resources to respond.

Your support is important to us. Please read all of this email to understand what is going on. We apologize for not getting back to you before. It is not through any lack of interest on our part, but an enforced lack of resources.

One of our alleged sources, a young US intelligence analyst, Bradley Manning, has been detained and shipped to a US military prison in Kuwait, where he is being held without trail. Mr. Manning is alleged to have acted according to his conscious and leaked to us the Collateral Murder video and the video of a massacre that took place in Afghanistan last year at Garani.

The Garani massacre, which we are still working on, killed over 100 people, mostly children.

Mr. Manning allegedly also sent us 260,000 classified US Department cables, reporting on the actions of US Embassy’s engaging in abusive actions all over the world. We have denied the allegation, but the US government is acting as if the allegation is true and we do have a lot of other material that exposes human rights abuses by the United States government.

Mr. Manning was allegedly exposed after talking to an unrelated “journalist” who then worked with the US government to detain him.

Some background on the Manning case:

WikiLeaks a small organization going through enormous growth and operating in an adverserial, high-security environment which can make communication time consuming and the acquisition of new staff and volunteers, also difficult since they require high levels of trust.

To try and deal with our growth and the current difficult situation, we want to get you to work together with our other supporters to set up a “Friends of WikiLeaks” group in your area. We have multiple supporters in most countries and would like to see them be a strong and independent force.

Please write to friends@sunshinepress.org if you are interested in helping with Friends of WikiLeaks in your area. You will receive further instructions.

We also have significant unexpected legal costs (for example flying a legal team to Kuwait, video production. Collateral Murder production costs were $50,000 all up).

Any financial contributions will be of IMMEDIATE assistance.

Please donate and tell the world that you have done so. Encourage all your friends to follow the example you set, after all, courage is contagious.

Pentagoons arrest Army Spc Bradley Manning in Global War On Truth

For providing the footage of the “Suicide By Cop” Helicopter Murders of Reuters reporters and civilians in Iraq. The person who snitched him off for money ,a former high-profile hacker, Adrian Lamo, said he didn’t want to “obstruct justice” as in, actually have Murderers punished for their crimes. The BBC report also falsely claims that the group of CIVILIANS murdered by the Helicopter High-Tech Hit Men “contained some Armed Men” even though the Murderers and their accomplices didn’t bring forth any such evidence. Just when I thought I could count on the BBC to put out a report unbiased by the Pentagon Warmonger Thugs.

handed his name to US authorities because of concerns over US national security and because he did not want to be found to have been “obstructing justice” in the course of any investigation.

“National Security”? NONE of the victims provided a threat to the security of the United States.
God-Damned Lying Prick. So when does the PROOF of the FACTS that the U.S. Army is on an unregulated murder spree in Iraq and routinely murders CIVILIANS, then LIES about their murderous actions, become a “threat to National Security”?

The Army commits heinous War Crimes and dares the people to provide evidence of their crimes, then when somebody IS man enough to provide the evidence, they have their PIG comrades in the FBI and Homeland “security” arrest the man.

Bradley Manning is the hero of this affair, and those who MURDERED civilians, whose victims included CHILDREN, are Cowardly Skulks.

Some “Operation Enduring Freedom” they’ve got going there. Must pretend that we’re over defending America and liberating the people. Lying sack of putrid decadent bloodstained shit.

Afghan-Greyhound mix shot down like a dog in the street, in Khandahar.

For getting too close to the Imperial Storm Troopers, who despite their claims to be “liberators” actually think they own the entire road. How DARE a Civilian Bus attempt to be in THEIR road?
Four people dead. The Pentagon Cover-Up Division is on the job though, fear not, the Imperial Storm Troopers will NOT be punished.

Well well Military can’t find its copies of videos from helicopter-shooting of two Reuters reporters

Even though the videos would have been taken through the onboard computers of the helicopters involved. In order to erase that much data, one would have to “zero out” the drive on which the videos were stored. And, any other drives onto which the videos were copied.

“We had no reason to hold the video at (Central Command), nor did the higher headquarters in Iraq,”

Other than, perhaps, because it showed Army Helicopter Pilots deliberately targeting civilians…

Hanzlik said in an e-mailed statement. “We’re attempting to retrieve the video from the unit who did the investigation.”

They DID, however, show it to investigators from Reuters wanting to know what the hell happened to their reporters 3 years ago.

The good news is, the video has been leaked to at least two websites,

The July 12, 2007, attack has been reported before. But Web site Wikileaks.org on Monday posted the video shot from one of the Apache helicopters, putting it on “collateralmurder.com” site.

Now, when the Army showed Reuters the videos of their employees being summarily Executed it was done “off the record”. and they wouldn’t allow Reuters to have a copy of it, not even heavily Redacted.

gives whole new meaning to “blow ‘n’ go”. We kill you then split.

So now the Army is saying, according to the gentleman and scholar Officer quoted first, that out of all the copies they made, on various computers, including the copy shown to Reuters, they can’t find one to compare to the leaked video. Which is also according to the Army is probably authentic. Just, you know, they don’t want to CAN’T yeah that’s the ticket Can’t prove it.

Now, the Military Procurement rules forbid procuring anything for free. They have to contract the procurement for each item, at quantity, and show in triplicate how much they paid for it.
The practical upshot of that is they wouldn’t have a free operating system. For Pay Only. Windows probably. Also Mac, perhaps enterprise editions of Linux, UNIX the daddy of them all.
But probably microsux.

I’m reminded of that scene in South Park where the U.S. general is presenting the plans to the assembled troops for the coming war against Canada.
The 3D hologram starts up, sputters, dies. General yells “Goddam Windows 95! Bring me Bill Gates!” They bring in Gates, who starts to offer some bullshit explanation, general pulls out his service M1911A ACP and blows his head off.

Now, I know that they teach the soldiers some really BAD freakin’ computer habits, meaning Windoze from Microsux. Which would leave traces in three different directories, at least, two of them hidden so they can’t be easily erased. And that would be on each computer which hosted the video. Don’t believe me, because I could just as easily be bullshitting you, God knows a whole lot of people DO. Try it out. Spend a few bucks and get an “email washing” program, or just use DiskEdit from the Nortons (Symantec) utilities on every modern version of Winblows. Go online and read the user help instruction pages for any program that does that.

Or you could trust me. But it would be God-Damned impossible for the Army to simply LOSE that many files. They use a variation of this same Anti-Microsoft dissertation in every court case where they put computer files in evidence.

So as usual They Be Bullshittin’.
