Funding creation or bloody appearance of civil wars has been the weapon of choice for post Second World War US imperialism. 32 such US promoted civil wars are listed. US backs fascist terror in Ukraine; makes the Venezuelan economy scream; Obama mouths a CIA fed imperial edit, “ Assad must go!” never mind Assad has overwhelming support. 23 presidents overthrown,18 dictators+ put in office. Americans will be prosecuted!
The so-called ‘International Community’ (formerly ‘The Free World’ and for a hundred years before ‘The Colonial Powers’), has been funding terror to destroy democracies in the Ukraine, Syria, and Venezuela. There is nothing new about this. Funding the creation or bloody appearance of civil wars has been the weapon of choice for post Second World War US imperialism beginning with China, Palestine, Korea, Greece, Guiana, Iran, Guatemala, Congo, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Panama, Ethiopia, Somalia, Angola, Mozambique, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Iraq, Lebanon, Georgia, Libya with failed attempts in Cuba and Zimbabwe.
Jesus knows the title of this article is something that should be so freaking obvious to the even the half awake,
– regardless of the preposterously false and absurd reverse reality portrayals by criminal war mongering media of what is going down in what was for seventy-four years the great nation of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, dissolved only twenty-three years ago; with US backed fascist terror against democracy in the Ukraine to avoid a coming election;
– in spite of a serial killer US President mouthing a CIA fed imperial edit, “President Assad must go!” though a NATO internal memo admits President Assad’s government’s overwhelming popularity;
– no matter how American leaders, proud of America having slaughtered six million men, women and children just in Indochina and Iraq alone, try to slander the democratically many-times-reelected Chavista socialist revolutionary government of Venezuela and “make its economy scream.
US presidents, pathetic lackeys of Wall Street, subserviently but ludicrously claimed the right to decide that presidents of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, and Venezuela, and in years past, of Guatemala, Venezuela, Ghana, Bolivia, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Panama, Grenada, Nicaragua, Zimbabwe, Chile, Haiti, Yemen, Pakistan, and Honduras, all must be violently removed from office.
Murdering friends of US Wall Street and European banks like murderous dictator Presidents Francisco Franco, Pérez Jeménez, Flugencio Batista, Gen. Chang Kai-Shek, Mobuto Sese Seke, Gen. Stroesser, Gen. Suharto, Gen. Ríos Montt, Gen. Banzer, ‘Papa Doc’ Duvalier, Ferdinand Marcos, Rafael Trujillo, Ngo Dinh Diem, Nguyen Cao Ky, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, Hosni Mubarak, Ali Abdullah Saleh, and F.W. de Klerk never lost their right to stay in office in the eyes of CIA beholden US presidents.
It is stupefying amazing that even after the long documented lies, disinformation and misinformation, and reporting out of context that justified the holocausts the US brought down on Korea, Vietnam and Iraq and the bloody invasions and overthrows of dozens of small former colonized nations, that the mass of Americans go on in their why-me-worry ignorant and self-indulgence way, slap-happily suckered by those very same favorite TV anchors; TV anchors of same war-investor-owned commercial mass entertainment media that for generations have in both sound bites and endless ‘expert’ panel discussions portrayed Americans as good guys risking their lives to kill bad guys in poor countries all over the world.
This then is the demented thinking within the majority Anglo-Saxon culture in the United States of America – something between the mind of a child and a maniac.
For more than a century, absurd, often even silly jingoistic propaganda and simple-minded patriotic blather within disinformative bits of information wildly out of context has passed for ‘reporting’ ‘the news’ in telecasts and newspaper reports that thereafter are exposed as false, as lies, as manipulated half-truths. ‘The truth shall make one free,’ but Americans will not hear the truth on TV or read it even in the New York Times, except when presented as inconsequential.
As an example, take the first US perpetrated post WW II genocide in Korea. Every Korean knows that for forty miserable years of the most brutal Japanese occupation, the US recognized Korea as territory of Imperial Japan in return for Japanese recognition of the Philippines as US territory, knows that after WW II was over, the departing Japanese allowed Koreans independence to form their own democratic government, knows this Korean government was overthrown by an invading US Army, knows the US installed a murderous dictatorship in the South that massacred nearly 200,000 communists, socialists, unionist, farmers organizers, democrats, members of that overthrown Korean government and those who protested Korea being divided into two parts [Documented Recently by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission set up by the National Assembly of the Republic of (South) Korea], knows that Korean soldiers of the North were welcomed by many in the South, knows that most of the army of the Southern dictatorship either defected or went home, knows that in five weeks Korea was again united, knows that the US then led many nations in bombing Korea flat north and south twice over, and causing the death of at least two million Koreans, knows that President Eisenhower threatened to Atom bomb the North, knows the US never ended the war officially, knows the US twice a year unleashes live ammunition war games on N. Korea’s coast within earshot of it capital.
(Small wonder North Korea is the most prepared for war nation on Earth.)
Keep-it-Simple-and-Patriotic Americans are feeble-minded enough to believe Koreans love Americans for having saved them from living under a Communist Government like the Chinese have. That it was worth two million Korean dead men, women and children, and families divided by a sixty-eight year closed border. I mean, how freaking dumb can people be. This is what American children are told and is standard hogwash fostered right up into university study.
But how Americans think of Vietnam is even more macabre, grotesque, sickening! Their invading Vietnam is a huge badge of honor for presidential candidates McCain, twenty-six time bomber of Hanoi and Kerry who shot dead at least one Vietnam patriot fighting for his country’s freedom. Recently, Kerry admonishing Russia when 97% of Crimeans voted to re-join it, moralizing, “You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped-up pretext.”
At least five million soft-spoken Buddhist colonial subjects of brutally racist France, mostly rice farmers, were killed, many from America dropping twice the amount of bombs on them that had been dropped in all of the Second World War! Americans liberated Paris from the Germans, and Vietnam from the Japanese and Vichy French, and then both France and the US attacked America’s Vietnamese ally and Laotians and Cambodians for thirty years. Americans listen with pride as proud Veteran Secretary of Defense [read of war] Chuck Hagel, decorated with the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry, brags of now being in charge of US troops in a hundred countries.”
But Martin Luther King Jr. in his sermon ‘Beyond Vietnam – a Time to Break Silence’ said it a thousand times more powerfully than anyone else. [http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/mlkatimetobreaksilence.htm ]
In Iraq, at least a million and half million beautiful men, women and children were savagely, bloodthirsty, mercilessly, sadistically; heinous dispatched in the cradle of human civilization, by misled and undereducated American youths fired up with misinformation about 9/11.
There is little need to document the above with specifics, since the forced open CIA files and the official statements of US Presidents, Secretaries of state and Defense are self-indicting of Americans. America’s next generation of top politicians might not be able to point with pride at their military service in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan, Iran and Libya. For the time is nearing for a hard rain to fall on US-NATO multiple genocides. When America’s ability to punish economically with sanctions that can bring even genocidal results more deadly than its firepower is weakened, the cry for justice from all the countries Americans destroyed will snowball to where it will not be able to be ignored.
But why is this barely known writer recounting America’s greatest indefensible crimes against humanity and not the spokespersons – of Syria, where American has funded the death of nearly two hundred thousand and the destruction of its beautiful cities, of Iran, constantly threatened with US nuclear attack, of Venezuela where the US funds and encourages civil war and loss of life, of Korea cut in two, the North suffering US live fire war games close off its coast, – of Russia the target of the same vilification as all the above, with US nuclear missiles pointed at their cities in underground silos ready to launch upon Obama’s order.
Your archival research people’s historian activist author working with the support of former US Attorney Ramsey Clark is dedicated to seeding the call for the full force of the law be to brought down upon Americans and citizens of NATO nations responsible for horrific beyond description crimes against humanity and peace.
US Chief Prosecutor Robert Jackson at the Nuremberg trials of Germans in 1945, felt obliged to point out that “these laws about genocide are not meant only for Germans, but for the citizens of all nations.”
Robert Richter, an Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker, and political director for CBS News from 1965 to 1968 recently wrote in Bomber Pilot McCain: War Heroism or War Crimes? published by Institute for Public Accuracy, October 15, 2008, writes, “I will never forget how stunned I was when Gen. Telford Taylor, the Chief U.S. Prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials after World War Two, told me that he strongly supported the idea of trying the U.S. pilots captured in North Vietnam as war criminals — and that he would be proud to lead in their prosecution.” It is still presently inconceivable for most people everywhere to think that same fate that befell citizens of Nazi Germany in being tried and punished for German invasions of some twenty nations could ever be shared by the British who invaded more than half the countries in the world making one out of every six human beings a British Colonial subject and a second under its power; inconceivable that France could be prosecuted for indemnification, compensation and reparations for its genocide in Haiti, Vietnam, Algeria, and dozens of nations the most recent example of it being it bombing Libya; inconceivable that Belgium, for its fame as having out done all the other colonial powers in massacring until the US surpassed even its record of genocide in the Congo, be required to pay up big. inconceivable that the United States, who made itself the single superpower by it having heavily invested in, and its top fifty corporations joint-ventured with, Nazis in building Hitler’s Wehrmacht up to world’s number one in five short years and now having American troops in one hundred nations, would be brought to justice for all its almost uncountable crimes against humanity. But just consider, until relatively recently, it was inconceivable that men could fly to the moon, let alone fly there and come back alive.
The Germans, Japanese and Italians were prosecuted and forced to pay reparations, and currently there are ongoing lawsuits of every imaginable nature from those of atom bombs tests victims to lawsuits by descendants of slaves, by native Americans, by former forced labor in factories owned by Americans, by those tortured in Iraq and Guantanamo. Nicaragua successfully sued the US in the International Court years ago.
Space age Humanity will not put up with modern high-tech Anglo-Saxon savages led genocidal invasions, bombing, and covert genocide for favorable investment return on speculative interest banking much longer. All the more sooner will the criminally insane be brought to specially created courts for the ecological abyss that yawns ever more widely and frighteningly because our ruling banker geeks’ trillion dollar dedication to profitable wars eating up the resources that should be used husbanding our planet home.
For good or for bad the Inconceivable does happens! For yours truly and hundred million fans, it was until very recently inconceivable that the world-famous activist-singer-composer of “Masters of War” and “A Hard Rain is Gonna Fall” would let a US government medal be hung around his frail neck by one of the mass-murdering and lying US presidents that Noam Chomsky said could have been hung if brought to trial as were the Nazis. It seemed inconceivable, for we remember the lyrics Bob Dylan sang:
Come you masters of war . You that build all the guns . You that build the death planes . You that build the big bombs . You that hide behind walls . You that hide behind desks. I just want you to know I can see through your masks Like Judas of old . You lie and deceive But there’s one thing I know. Even Jesus would never Forgive what you do. Is your money that good . Will it buy you forgiveness . Do you think that it could. When your death takes its toll . All the money you made . Will never buy back your soul. And I hope that you die. And your death’ll come soon. I will follow your casket In the pale afternoon. And I’ll watch while you’re lowered Down to your deathbed . And I’ll stand o’er your grave ’Til I’m sure that you’re dead
But the inconceivable happened:
In summation, for better or for worse, in the fast-moving not yet entirely conceivable space age of instant world-wide personal cell-phone communication and whole libraries of information universally available at finger-touch speed even by hand-held computers, the inconceivable becomes conceivable astride nano technology racing forward.
It is entirely conceivable that the pitifully inhuman behaving Americans, Europeans, Canadians, Australians and New Zealanders who participated in, supported or acquiesced to horrific beyond words genocide after genocide, whether as CIA, bankers, politicians, media personnel, clergy or military, will face justice.
Just how long will the global reach of insane CIA and moronic uncontrolled speculative investment banking industry’s elite continue to destroy and mass-murder using up the planet’s dwindling resources, before leaders and celebrities within the non-paleface plundered 6/7th of the world population take charge of the planet and save it by prosecuting the obviously criminally insane and ugliest, most desperate, most weird, unhappy, depressed and self-alienated Homo sapiens on Earth. Many of them certainly would like something to stop them, for they are unable to stop themselves except by fear of prosecution.
