“We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it ‘bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East’. – Harold Pinter

_____________________________________________________

10150533_736557003032115_475730777_nBritish playwright Harold Pinter won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005. His powerful acceptance speech exposed the United States for its fascist, imperialist policies since World War II. His speech (delivered three years before he died in 2008) was an important glimpse into – and a reasonable summary of — the innumerable documentable US imperialistic crimes that have been secretly facilitated by our multinational corporations, our national security apparatus, our military leaders, our wealthy elites and the craven politicians who are beholden to those four realities that have shaped American foreign policy over the past 60 years.

True American patriots, if they really love the United States, must be honest about the dishonorable, dark side of their nation’s history, a history that the rest of the world, especially Pinter, sees so clearly. Understanding that history will clear up any mystery about why the rest of the world fears and hates us. More

1907_592480940779533_1288754931_nLate Friday, a federal judge dismissed a civil claim filed against George W. Bush and other high-ranking officials regarding their conduct in planning and waging the Iraq War, and immunized them from further proceedings.

“This is an early Christmas present to former Bush Administration officials from the federal court,” Inder Comar of Comar Law said. Comar brought the claim on behalf of an Iraqi refugee and single mother, Sundus Shaker Saleh. “This was a serious attempt to hold US leaders accountable under laws set down at the Nuremberg Trials in 1946. I am very disappointed at the outcome.” More

As the U.S. considers another war in Iraq, it is important to reflect on the prior wars there on Independence Day.  The war in Iraq cost 4500 American lives and as many as 1.4 million Iraqi civilians have been killed. More

What If War Was Outlawed?

Did you know that war is against the law? All should become familiar with the Kellogg-Briand Pact of 1928:

“(A) Treaty between the United States and other Powers providing for the renunciation of war as an instrument of national policy. Signed at Paris, August 27, 1928; ratification advised by the Senate, January 16, 1929; ratified by the President, January 17, 1929; instruments of ratification deposited at Washington by the United States of America, Australia, Dominion of Canada, Czechoslovkia, Germany, Great Britain, India, Irish Free State, Italy, New Zealand, and Union of South Africa, March 2, 1929: By Poland, March 26, 1929; by Belgium, March 27 1929; by France, April 22, 1929; by Japan, July 24, 1929; proclaimed, July 24, 1929.”

Following is from a story by the CBC:

“There was no “Mission Accomplished” banner. No victory parade down the center of this capital scarred and rearranged by nearly nine years of war. No crowds of cheering Iraqis grateful for liberation from Saddam Hussein.

“Instead, the U.S. military officially declared an end to its mission in Iraq on Thursday with a businesslike closing ceremony behind blast walls in a fortified compound at Baghdad airport. The flag used by U.S. forces in Iraq was lowered and boxed up in a 45-minute ceremony. No senior Iraqi political figures attended.

“With that, and brief words from top American officials who flew in under tight security still necessary because of the ongoing violence in Iraq, the U.S. drew the curtain on a war that left 4,500 Americans and more than 100,000 Iraqis dead.

“The conflict also left another 32,000 Americans and far more Iraqis wounded, drained more than $800 billion US from America’s treasury and soured a majority of Americans on a war many initially supported as a just extension of the fight against terrorism after the 9/11 attacks.”

Oh, go ahead, celebrate – at least a little bit! It IS a step in the right direction.

Bush should be in jail…….BRASSCHECK TV/video

If we can put a man on the moon…we can put George Bush in jail.

We have to wait until he’s out of office, but once he is it should be Gray Bar Hotel time.

I don’t care who is friends are or who his daddy is.

The legal theory is bullet proof, the case is rock solid, and the mechanism is in place – almost.

Your help is needed to make it happen:

1. Understand the case

2. Tell others about it

3. Support the Attorney General candidate for the State of Vermont who is legally empowered to bring the case to trial.

Here’s the smoking gun evidence that proves when Bush sent thousands of Americans to their deaths, he did it knowing that the country was in no danger from Iraq.

Under US law, taking a deliberate action knowing that it will result in the death of one or more, without legal justification, is murder.

Once he’s indicted in Vermont for the murder of citizens there who’ve been killed in Iraq only the Supreme Court can protect him – and it won’t be as easy for them to do this as it was when they put this criminal in the White House in the first place.

Now’s the time.

This is how they managed the Iraq War billions….BRASSCHECK TV/video

Can you imagine the scope and scale of the theft that will take place with the bank bailouts?

For four generations now, the Bush family has been involved in supporting the country’s enemies (most notably the Nazi Party in Germany) and robbing the country blind.

The family was directly involved and profited from the Savings and Loan scandal of the 1980s and has participated in security fraud as well.

With this understanding as a background, the Iraq War can be viewed as their “masterpiece.”

The Bush family and its associates have stolen countless billions of dollars in the course of the war. In fact, one of their motivations for pushing the war in the first place was the opportunity for theft.

Chances are the destruction of World Trade Tower Seven, the home of crucial and now lost forever SEC and other federal law enforcement evidence and case files was carried out to cover their tracks.

Why isn’t the news media pointing out that the last time we had a banking system collapse that enriched a bunch of crooks, a Bush was in the White House running the show?

 

Oversight…

 

While US politicians try to figure out how to deploy a multi-trillion dollar slush fund to bail out their friends on Wall Street, there’s another ongoing multi-trillion dollar disaster still unresolved.      The Iraq War.

 

McCain says we may need to be there another 100 years.

 

Here’s how oversight is working there:

P.S. Have you noticed how the cost of the Iraq war is not a media issue?

 

Instead they’re focused entirely on greasing the wheels for the latest multi-trillion dollar scam.

We Are Stealing Iraqi Oil and Calling It Democracy.

Leave a comment

Oil production sharing agreements should be more aptly called “How we stole the Iraqi’s oil and used our military to do it”.  The push to pass production sharing agreements through the Iraqi parliament has hit numerous bumps in the road.  The Iraqi parliament, which is nothing more than part of the puppet government set up by Bush and other global elitists, refused to pass the new oil laws necessary to allow up to 60% of Iraqi oil production to be owned by non-Iraqi entities.  That would be Exxon/Mobil, BP and Dutch Shell to you and me.

 

If you think or believe that the current oil prices have anything to do with whether or not we are sinking wells in the Gulf of Mexico, in ANWAR, or anywhere else on or around this continent, you probably shouldn’t be reading this article.  The current oil prices are directly tied to your willingness to continue to slaughter the people of a country whose economy is based on oil and which nationalizes its production rather than allowing a few greedy globalist elites to rape and plunder this national asset.  The higher they crank up the price per gallon, the more willing we are to kill people “over there” rather than control corporations “over here”. 

 

When the Iraqi parliament refused in 2007 to pass new laws to benefit the above mentioned global parasites, the Bush regime went into high gear propaganda mode.  Supposedly, attacks by insurgents were way up and now we had to increase troop levels to protect our soldiers (and for other purposes).  Seems to me, if troop safety was ever a concern, they wouldn’t have been half way around the world fighting a pre-emptive war against a non-threatening country to gain access to their oil.

 

I don’t believe in coincidences and I don’t believe it’s coincidental that the failure to pass the long coveted agreements coincided with the troop surge which precipitated even more death and destruction in Iraq.  Neither do I believe that insurgent attacks were any more prevalent than at any other time.  The troop surge was nothing less than a signal to the puppet Iraqi government that there was nothing we would not do, no weapon we wouldn’t use, no bomb we wouldn’t drop, and no one we wouldn’t torture into submission to get those agreements passed.  And now that the agreements look like they will become a reality?  Why!  The insurgent attacks have dropped so much that it looks like some of our troops can begin coming home.  Go figure.

 

This is where I say “I told you so!”  Two years ago I wrote about this very issue and stated that until these agreements were passed to benefit the oil cartels, there would be no withdrawal, no end to the occupation and no end in sight to this war.  What is a nation like ours, whose economy is 45% dependent upon the war industry to do? 

 

It seems that one of our diplomats reported to British newspapers that Israel has been put on “amber alert”, standby, with instructions to ready itself to attack Iran.  See, we aren’t going to attack them……Israel is; Israel that has been armed with more than 200 nuclear warheads in violation of the non-proliferation treaty.  Armed with weapons we have supplied them, manufactured and developed by our arms industry.  Israel that has been performing training exercises over Iran regularly for at least two years in an attempt to provoke them into war.  Supposedly we aren’t going to send any of our military to assist them.  Just more weapons and be there as a back up. 

 

In my opinion, the Israeli people suffer from the same corruption of government as we do.  The Israeli government and those behind the scenes in Israel, who pull the strings, no more represent the Israeli people than Bush and Cheney represent America.  Neither government views its people as anything more than fodder for the cannons.  And neither government represents anyone other than a collection of obscenely wealthy multinationals who believe that we are all dispensable as long as they get what they desire.  And this international cabal of evil is now set to raze yet another mid-eastern country with the sole intent of seizing its assets and controlling the world’s oil supply.  So what if a few million Iranians die? 

 

This does seem to be a matter of “when they do it, we call it terrorism, when we do it we call justified”.  America has lost any semblance of being a just or civil society.  We have been exposed to the world as corrupt, greedy, inhumane, unjust and murderous.  Rather than being an example to the world of what is right, of how good things can be when a democracy thrives, we have become the standard bearer for corruption and aggression.  It’s no wonder the rest of the world now views us as the biggest threat to peace. 

 

More than this, we have been exposed as a country so dumbed down, so paralyzed with stupidity, we willingly tolerate a government that is actively working to take away our own democracy, our own freedoms while we sit idly by in our stupor. 

 

This, as the Bush administration fabricates another phony threat with yet another country in another war for oil.
