[ December 25, 2007: I composed this monologue-rant deconstruction of 'modernity' and nuanced American foreign policy calculus 3 years ago on Christmas day (and for the next couple of days), sitting in the comfort of my home in California. I had feverishly typed all day on that most joyous of all days in Christendom with mostly tears running down my face, and as mostly a cathartic aid to my own sanity. Why do I still feel the same despondency? And this time, 3 years later, Christmas and Eid holidays have coincided – and it is also the most joyous of all days in the equally vast Islamdom as well. I did not celebrate it. While most everyone in the neighborhood slaughtered their sheep, goats, or cow, and the helpless cries of 'maemaemae' rang through the air, all I could imagine and hear was the helpless monolithic cry of the slaughter of human beings across the Muslim world for the ephemeral gains on the 'Grand Chessboard'. I even thrust my fingers into my ears as the neighbors' goats pleaded for its life as it perhaps witnessed or heard its mate first being put to the heartless butchers' knife, and I just could not deaden the sound. I stayed in my house while who knows how many people knocked on the gate as they lined up for their fair share from the slaughter they imagined I might be hoarding when I did not come out. The twain slaughters under the respective prerogatives of 'uber' imperatives, each justifying it as a higher calling, each unquestioningly following their own god(s), each bringing a cataclysm to its victims no less mysterious as when “something was revealed” on the “Sinai”, and not a soul heeding cries for help as if heaven itself has fallen asleep? I find no one, absolutely no one, in this vast 'land of the pure' to share my despair on this most joyous of all occasions, no differently than three years ago in America. Has the world itself frozen, or has only time frozen? Or is it merely the creeping ice of 'civilization' in our veins that has us despicably “looking from the side”? ]
“I too think the intellectual should constantly disturb, should bear witness to the misery of the world, should be provocative by being independent, should rebel against all hidden and open pressure and manipulations, should be the chief doubter of systems, of power and its incantations, should be a witness to their mendacity. For this very reason, an intellectual cannot fit into any role that might be assigned to him, nor can he ever be made to fit into any of the histories written by the victors. An intellectual essentially doesn't belong anywhere; he stands out as an irritant wherever he is; he does not fit into any pigeonhole completely.” V. Havel
While not feigning to be an intellectual, but neither a dunce, and still in possession of a modicum of rationality to understand what is transpiring around me, I too feel compelled to write my conscience. I too feel compelled to call a spade a spade. I too fear the curse of posterity hanging over my head like the Damocles sword and the silent anguish of the victims calling out for justice:
“I still curse the killers, their accomplices, the indifferent spectators who knew and kept silent, and Creation itself, Creation and those who perverted and distorted it. I feel like screaming, howling like a madman so that that world, the world of the murderers, might know it will never be forgiven.” E. Wiesel
On this day in 2004 when the American nation celebrates its joyous Christmas, I mourn the innocent victims of America's 'war on terrorism'.
There is an implied question mark at the end of the subtitle. As a proposition, it could either be preposterous and patently false, or it could be manifestly true like the trumpeting elephant in the newlywed's bed and curiously always ignored.
The facts supporting the main title however are undeniable and unarguable. The Neocon Zionist Judeofascist-Zionofascist cabal is creating a 'New World Order' of “full spectrum dominance” to keep the “American Peace” in the world by forcing other nations to accept “America's unique role in preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles.” This is being accomplished by dragging her largely peaceable polity into an aggressive war of global domination under the age-old feeble guise of “preemptive self-defense” conducted on other people's soil.
To enable this “imperial mobilization” on the 'Grand Chessboard' in order to “perpetuate America's own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer” such that “no Eurasian challenger emerges, capable of dominating Eurasia and thus also challenging America”, a commensurate lifetime of “War on Terrorism” has been constructed against a well formulated never-ending enemy, the “islamofascists”. However, fighting in far-away lands is “uncongenial to democratic instincts” as the “economic self-denial (that is defense spending), and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers) required in the effort” makes “democracy ... inimical to imperial mobilization.”
Therefore, before wide-spread protests break out as people wisen up, as they did during the Vietnam War, and bring the “imperial mobilization” to a grinding halt, fascist laws that co-opt the Constitution and curtail the Bill of Rights are already on the books to spring a 'legal' police-state upon America when needed, in the name of 'protecting' the public. But in reality, to get them to continually march un-protestingly, and with a great deal of “patriotic” fanfare, to the beat of “United We Stand” to theirs' and their victims' dispensable slaughter!
This is all too obvious, as obvious as any self-evident truism, to require any further elaboration, especially given the naked unarguable evidence of new draconian laws and suspension of civil liberties already being on the books just awaiting draconian full spectrum enforcement!
When the latter happens, that's a police-state! A police-state that “goosestep[s] the Herrenvolk across international frontiers” in the unbridled quest for its version of “Lebensraum” is merely syntactic sugaring for “the Fourth Reich”!
Without the police-state, the same “imperial mobilization” requires much “doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment, and patriotic gratification” all of which may run thin without a domestic big-stick if the Judeofascist-Zionofascist cabal in Washington (along with their co-fascists in Tel Aviv) decide to implement her Nuclear Posture Review and the National Security Council Strategy that calls for nuclear first strikes on non-nuclear nations. That would necessitate a martial-law, or at least the planned police-state under emergency powers, perhaps upon the occurance of another even more shocking “new Pearl Harbor” catalyzing event that provides a convenient pretext for nuclear preemption disguised as retaliation, in order to coerce the people to go along with nuking other nations.
Yes indeed, the Fourth Reich is rising! The script is in dress rehearsal since well before 911!
However, the proposition in the subtitle is admittedly unique. Can it possibly be true? Is there any evidence to support an affirmative conclusion?
If we presume for the moment that this ostensibly bizarre proposition indeed be the ultimate truth behind all the lies and deception that has gone into creating the everlasting “war on terrorism”, their lifetime of World War IV, then the Neocon Zionist Judeofascist Zionofascist strategists found the perfect patsies to orchestrate their monumental revenge with.
The largely defenseless, intellectually, politically, and economically colonized fratricidal Muslims, living on rich fertile lands zealously coveted by the Zionists for their two millennia old dream of an Eretz Israel, and holding the jugular of Western Civilization as the “the good Lord didn't see fit to put oil and gas only where there are democratically elected regimes friendly to the United States”, are an incredibly convenient and enabling scapegoat du jour. For 'Islamofascism' is as ripe to cultivate among the intellectually bankrupt Muslims as any weed on fertile soil to sell 'RoundUp' – to hasten off the equally deftly primed marching Christian soldiers to their early 'Rapture' against the barbarian 'evil-doers'.
And only the first among many scapegoats to come, for a Millennium of 'eye for an eye' revenge is a very long time indeed!
Despite their one and a half billion strong people across the globe being shown the daily images of barbaric destruction of their brothers and sisters of all ages at the hands of a Christian Crusading army being zealously led by their Christian President/Emperor who enjoys private communion with god and claims: “God told me to strike at al-Qaida and I struck them, and then He instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East.”, the worldwide Muslims are unable to unite and fight back even in genuine self-defense of their own soils, properties, infrastructures, peoples, and freedoms.
For then, even if through serendipitous happenstance of uncommon courage they were to throw off the yoke of co-optation from among their midst, it would be labeled “terrorism” against the mighty Christian Emperor by “evil doers” united in an “axis of evil”!
It is the deeply “religious and spiritual” Christian Emperor, the most powerful man in the world, ostensibly controlling the reins of the most powerful nation on Earth, who now so forcefully articulates the strategies handed him by his Zionist Neocon Judeofascist handlers as he proceeds to define friend from foe, and belligerently warns all nations and all peoples right out of the Third Reich handbook of intimidation: “either you are with us or with the terrorists”.
Any resistance to the Emperor's crusading mission of bringing 'justice' overseas through a lifetime of wars fought with other people's blood, and with the expendable Christian soldiers of economic conscription of his own nation: “Whether we bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done”, is now cast as “terrorism”.
Any protest waged by his own people against this imperial mission of blood letting in the name of “Christian justice” is now called 'unpatriotic', and a “threat to national security”, and will soon be labeled 'seditious' with those persisting in it becoming “enemy combatants”.
New [anti] “Patriot[ism]” laws have been enacted to even strip his own people of their citizenship and nationality by birth if they are deemed too vociferous in their expression of dissent, with a new centralized intelligence apparatus created having full carte blanche to keep a watchful eye over his resentful subjects if the American bodycount ever gets out of hand!
What a brilliant catch-22 from the ever fertile minds of the handful of Judeofascist Zionist Neocons.
They have endeavored to take away even the right of self-defense from the victims of these Crusades with a weapon so powerful that any struggle put up by them incurs a further more devastating wrath in the guise of fighting “terrorism”. The systematic destruction of their cities and the innocent lives of the inhabitants, innocent men, women, children, and old people – generally the composition of any densely populated city in the Middle East as elsewhere in the world, is blithely and mercilessly undertaken for saving them from the “terrorists” [resistance fighters or 'mujahideens', and sometimes also paid mercenaries and 'pirates'] among them!
So you are subjugated by default if you don't resist, and you are subjugated through overwhelming 'shock and awe' terror from the heavens and the seas and from land even more brutally if you do genuinely resist as a manifest lesson to others to dare not resist! But 'Islamofascism' – the ineffectual barbarian enemy - yes that's necessary to cultivate in order to continue sending the Western gullibles into fighting a lifetime of 'holy Crusade' against a suitably demonized foe.
And that after 12 years of debilitating economic sanctions that had already reduced the Iraqi people to bare necessities for survival. And to punish whom? Ostensibly a dictator that the illustrious predecessors of the Emperor had themselves installed through their intelligence operations as a pawn in the revival of the Great Game during the Cold War. And whom the successive predecessors of the Emperor ardently armed and fervently supported as he aggressively invaded their nemesis Iran at their behest, causing a million Muslims to be killed on each side in a long drawn out totally senseless fratricidal mayhem – with the Emperor's own Secretary of Defense visiting the dictator in 1984, and pumping his hand enthusiastically for his unprovoked aggression against Iran, right after the dictator had also just gassed his own people!
What a Machiavellian strategy for complete subjugation of an innocent Muslim people who also happen to reside on lands that the Zionist covet for Eretz Israel, and under whose feet lies the black gold that the empire covets: foist and maintain your favorite dictators upon them, then wage endless wars on them to free them from their dictators – for “What is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times” as insightfully observed and ominously foretold by the Zionist founding father of Israel, David Ben Gurion. In order for the Zionist to fulfill their dreams, they need to create wars, any wars.
When Madeleine Albright, the US Secretary of State under President Clinton, was asked by Leslie Stahl of CBS 60 Minutes in 1996 about the UN reported horrendous casualties of innocent
Iraqi children for want of basic medicines and basic nourishment denied them due to the inhuman economic
sanctions imposed by America on Iraq by George Bush Sr. and carried on by Clinton for another 8 years, quote Leslie Stahl:
“We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that is more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?”,
to which Albright could only remark:
“I think this is a very hard choice, but the price, we think the price is worth it.”
An ardent supporter of Israel and a Jew herself, inheritor of the moral Judaic law and witness to the preceding Nazi Holocaust within her own lifetime, the monumentally criminal Albright could only display her Zionist candor for the inconsequential and deliberate murder of half a million Iraqi children with this pithy and heartless epitaph for their tiny tombstones!
Whence this blood lust in the cold blooded Judeofascist Zionist veins comes from?
In continuation of their despotic strategy of subjugation, the amoral Zionists for the benefit of the imperial aims of the amoral Neocons, have orchestrated a despotic atmosphere at home whereby only when you support and participate in the Emperor's crusade and cheer for him wildly every time he rises to speak, are you a faithful and patriotic “Good American”. Whether you be an ordinary man in the street or a high official holding an elected office – tow the line or remain silent is the message.
Any remonstrations at having their “proletariat” blood spilled for the delusions of the Emperor, at having their nation's wealth spent on bloody wars overseas instead of building better schools, better healthcare, and better social services for the people, and at the monumentally criminal assault on other weaker nations for the avarice of the few, now incurs the severe risk of being reviled, interned, or stripped of citizenship as an “Enemy Combatant” and hauled off to “Limbo” who knows where.
A Constitutional Democracy with a Bill of Rights for its Peoples, has been turned into a fascist dictatorial autocracy of the Judeofascist Zionist Neocons, with a befitting figurehead Christian monarch presiding over their bidding, one who even in his lighter moments used to fancy himself as a dictator: “
If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator.”
Whence this Judeofascist-Zionofascist hatred for the most powerful Christian nation on Earth stem from?
Most of of these strategists, who bring us death and mayhem through their visions of Eretz Yisrael that commences with the conquest of all Palestine from the Nile to the Euphrates, and eventually extending over the entire planet by hitching a piggy back ride upon the backs of the American Empire as the new “Zion that will light up all the world”, are highly educated, self motivated, monumentally criminal in their tortuous ideological aspirations, Zionist Jews.
While many Jews are not Zionists, most Zionists tend to hail from the Jewish cultural heritage, although many of them are quite secular, and some are outright atheists. There are also a few Muslim Semites who have adopted the Zionist creed – the name that often comes to mind is the outspoken Zionist supporter and Professor of Middle Eastern Studies, Mr. Fouad Ajami at Johns Hopkins University. And it would surely be a travesty of cosmic justice to consign his excellency, Zalmay Khalilzad - the Afghan American of Muslim descent - into obscurity by not mentioning his worthy name among the distinguished luminaries of this creed. But by and large, the Zionists come from the Jewish blood line.
It is a monumental crime against a worthy people to associate the Zionists with the moral theistic religion of Moses – the bearer of the cosmic Ten Commandments - even when some of them may make observance of Jewish rites a part of their cultural rituals, and intellectually associate themselves with the long suffering and sad history of the Jewish Diaspora.
Zionism is a devious and murderous political philosophy that dates to the secular scholar and Zionism pioneer, Theodor Herzl, 1896-97:
“In Basle I founded the Jewish state . . . Maybe in five years, certainly in fifty, everyone will realize it.”
It seeks to forcibly and militarily displace the indigenous Arab population of Palestine with an imported population of the Diaspora Jews, mainly European, but also African, Indian, South American, etc., to solve the historical problem of anti-Semitism in Europe of the past centuries.
Whereas Judaism, as distinct from Zionism, is a Divine and moral religion brought by Moses and embodied in the 'book' named 'Torah' – whose vestiges appear in the Biblical Old Testament, but not at all in the Talmud which mainly builds upon the Rabbinical theory of particularism of an 'ubermensch' peoples who are superior to the 'goy' and pre-ordained to lord upon them. The Talmud interprets the lofty Ten Commandments of the Torah as only applicable to the Jews – 'thou shall not kill' has an implied (a Jew) in parenthesis!
Zionism, while a secularist, largely atheistic doctrine of cold-blooded conquest to solve the “Jewish Question”, liberally draws upon this Rabbinical doctrine of antiquity to accomplish its aspirations, cleverly mixing in, as appropriate, the sprinkling of return to the “Promised Land” from the Old Testament to motivate the larger Jewish people into making their “Alia”. This works because the Old Testament is equally sacred to the Christian 'goy', and in these times, they too willingly accept the idea of returning the 'Children of Israel' to Zion, even if by force, in fulfillment of Biblical Prophesies!
Thus Zionism and moral Judaic teachings of Moses are as far apart from each other as Hitler from the benevolent and merciful teachings of Jesus Christ, even as Mr. Hitler loudly professed himself to being a fervent Christian. This is an exact analogy in all its ramifications, even as it applies to the present day Emperor of the World who is an avowed Evangelical Christian. He eagerly supports the Zionist mantra which is drawn from the Old Testament precisely for this manipulative purpose. This mantra motivates 60 million Zion-aspiring Evangelical Christians in the Bible Belt of America - the only real constituency of President George Bush.
Please give the 'islamofascists' some well deserved rest (after winning the West their Cold War they never got to put their feet up and smoke their pipes in gloat, unlike their patron saint Zbigniew Brzezinski), and begin World War IV upon the tortuous 'christian fundamentalists' and the Judeofascist Zionofascist fundamentalists in ones' own backyard first!
One who claims to be a follower of Prophet Moses and also espouses Zionism is as much a hypocrite making a mockery of the moral Biblical teachings of the Jew's religion, as a Christian who claims to be a follower of Jesus and then supports Zionism and proceeds at full haste to bring Jesus to the people of the world with Depleted Uranium bombs at the urging of the Neo-cons. Perhaps both people may have forgotten that the hypocrites, more than the unbelievers, are to be barbecued in the lowest recesses of hell according to their own scriptures.
Most Zionists openly profess to secularism and even atheism, and only a very small portion of the Zionists, many of whom may actually live in Israel, are orthodox Jews. However both claim with a straight face that 'god' promised them the 'Land of Canaan' when they attempt to justify their barbarism in Palestine upon the 'lesser goy'. Whatever their own level of faith in their ancient scriptures that adorns them with the appellation “god's chosen people” - whether they actually believe in it, or consider it a mythology that can be usefully harvested for the greater cause of Zionist propaganda – the Zionists, like the larger Jewry, do very deeply associate with their two millennia history of Christian persecution.
Indeed, the Diaspora, and the cultural and ritualistic traditions that spontaneously evolved among them to maintain their “Jewish” identity, is an unparalleled heritage. It is this sense of identity and shared burden of two to three thousand years of history, more than any faith in 'holy scriptures', that largely 'spiritually' binds the Jewry of the world together, and has done so for at least two millennia.
The sense of injustices done to them by the followers of Christ runs strong in their blood lines, and is passed on from generations to generations like the DNA. This persecution complex is not unique to the Jews and the Zionists. All people who have suffered sustained injustices have acquired long memories transcending generations.
Theodor Herzl (1860-1904), a secular and cosmopolitan Jew, fluent in French and German languages but not Hebrew or Yiddish, was looking for a way to finally solve the Jewish problems of Europe that had subjugated the Jews as a people at the whims of the Christians for centuries. Gee, wouldn't it be nice to get the all spread out Jews their own country in which they could be protected from the European anti-Semitism? He espoused this idea in his influential pamphlet “The Jewish State” or “Der Judenstaat” in 1896, stating:
“Let the sovereignty be granted us over a portion of the globe large enough to satisfy the rightful requirements of a nation; the rest we shall manage for ourselves.”
Benny Morris, the reputed Israeli Historian writes in 'Righteous Victims':
“Herzl regarded Zionism's triumph as inevitable, not only because life in Europe was ever more untenable for Jews, but also because it was in Europe's interests to rid the Jews and relieved of anti-Semitism: The European political establishment would eventually be persuaded to promote Zionism. Herzl recognized that anti-Semitism would be harnessed to his own Zionist-purposes.”
Initially, Herzl looked at lands in Africa (what is now Uganda) to resettle the European Jews, but who would want to go there? As bad as things were for them in Europe, they weren't quite as bad that they would leave their culture and property and head off for some African safari. Then he hit upon the Biblical notion of the re-gathering the Jews in Zion, known since antiquity as Palestine, that many of his predecessors over the ages had also wishfully dreamed about. Now that could potentially fire up the imagination of the Jews if properly pitched and might motivate them to move to Zion – their Biblical home, except that the land was already continuously inhabited for thousands of years by an indigenous population. Well no problem – they would just have to be removed, albeit surreptitiously.
But what about the Bible – did it really suggest this re-gathering of the Jews as a prophesy, as a promise made by God to the Jews, “God's chosen people”, that still remains unfulfilled? Regardless of its merit, the idea could potentially fire up the imaginations of both the Christians and the Jews, with the former even helping the latter achieve it as a Divinely ordained decree – if properly pitched to the believers and the European colonial masters.
Even if it entailed displacing the indigenous Arab population through oppression, land buyouts, and creating generally inhospitable situations through terror campaigns that the natives could be “voluntarily” convinced to leave with a one-way ticket in fear of their lives and livelihoods? Why would any people agree to such atrocities? Well perhaps the land could also be pitched as being empty: “A land without a people for a people without a land.”
The Judeo-Christian masses, respectively blinded by their dismal history of oppression, and passion for religious crusades and anti-Semitism, wouldn't really know the reality on the ground. Or they could even be made to turn a willing blind eye if properly motivated, rationalizing their brutality away for a higher moral Divinely ordained cause.
Indeed, even a 'la mission civilisatrice': “We can be the vanguard of culture against barbarianism.” as Herzl artfully pitched the usefulness of a “Jewish state” in the middle of the Moslem Arabs to the colonial masters. But what if the European Jews still wouldn't come, or would wish to go elsewhere, like to the land of opportunities, America?
From the fertile imagination of an amoral secular Jew more than a 100 years ago, thus sprung the illegitimate seeds of a diabolical plan to be legally achieved piecemeal over time, with all the right paperwork, with the blessings of the European colonial powers of the day as a win-win for both the Christian Europeans and the Jews, but not the indigenous Arab population of Palestine, and which now sits among our midst as the source of eternal damnation for humanity – Zionism, and its bastard offspring, Israel.
And thusly started the travails of the innocent Palestinian Peoples more than a century ago - long before Hitler's rise to power, long before any Holocaust provided the right motivation for the fleeing Jews to populate Palestine, long before America welcomed them with open arms to her own vast shores deftly steering the vast majority of destitute and victimized Jewry to seek refuge in Palestine after WW II - and mercilessly continues, unabated, to this very day.
The Israeli leaders themselves openly admit to this history of their illegitimate birth through war and terror campaigns:
'In 1943, current Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir wrote an article entitled “Terror” for the journal of the terrorist organization he headed (Lehi) in which he proposed to “dismiss all the ‘phobia’ and babble against terror with simple, obvious arguments.” “Neither Jewish morality nor Jewish tradition can be used to disallow terror as a means of war,” he wrote, and “We are very far from any moral hesitations when concerned with the national struggle.” “First and foremost, terror is for us a part of the political war appropriate for the circumstances of today, and its task is a major one: it demonstrates in the clearest language, heard throughout the world including by our unfortunate brethren outside the gates of this country, our war against the occupier.” ' In Noam Chomsky's 'Western State Terrorism' Ch. 2.
“If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti - Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?” David Ben Gurion – Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), 121.
“We should prepare to go over to the offensive. Our aim is to smash Lebanon, Trans-Jordan, and Syria. The weak point is Lebanon, for the Moslem regime is artificial and easy for us to undermine. We shall establish a Christian state there, and then we will smash the Arab Legion, eliminate Trans-Jordan; Syria will fall to us. We then bomb and move on and take Port Said, Alexandria and Sinai.”
“We must do everything to insure they (the Palestinians) never do return ... The old will die and the young will forget.” David Ben-Gurion,1948.
“We walked outside, Ben-Gurion accompanying us. Allon repeated his question, 'What is to be done with the Palestinian population?' Ben-Gurion waved his hand in a gesture which said 'Drive them out!'” Yitzhak Rabin, leaked censored version of Rabin memoirs, published in the New York Times, 23 October 1979.
“We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population.” Israel Koenig in The Koenig Memorandum
“Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no longer exist. Not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either. Nahlal arose in the place of Mahlul; Kibbutz Gvat in the place of Jibta; Kibbutz Sarid in the place of Huneifis; and Kefar Yehushua in the place of Tal al-Shuman. There is not a single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population.” Moshe Dayan, in Haaretz, April 4, 1969.
“How can we return the occupied territories? There is nobody to return them to.”
“There is no such thing as a Palestinian people... It is not as if we came and threw them out and took their country. They didn’t exist.” Golda Meir, 1969.
“The thesis that the danger of genocide was hanging over us in June 1967 and that Israel was fighting for its physical existence is only bluff, which was born and developed after the war.” Israeli General Matityahu Peled, Ha'aretz, 19 March 1972.
“Israel did not want those territories; they were imposed on Israel in war.” Holocaust survivor, Director of Holocaust Museum, and Nobel Laureate, Elie Wiesel.
“We declare openly that the Arabs have no right to settle on even one centimeter of Eretz Israel... Force is all they do or ever will understand. We shall use the ultimate force until the Palestinians come crawling to us on all fours.”
“When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do about it will be to scurry around like drugged cockroaches in a bottle.” Raphael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces, New York Times 14 April 1983.
“We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves.” Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983.
“There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience. They are our neighbors here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, there are people who do not belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to a different galaxy.” Israeli president Moshe Katsav. The Jerusalem Post, May 10, 2001
And lastly, Tanya Reinhart, an Israeli scholar, writes in her 2002 book “Israel/Palestine - How to End the War of 1948” of the brainwashing that goes on in the Israeli society to convince its own new generations, and whatever conscionable Jewish people there might still exist in Israel, to tow the Zionist's ideological fiction much like in America:
“The state of Israel founded in 1948 following a war which the Israelis call the War of Independence, and the Palestinians call the Nakba - the catastrophe. A haunted, persecuted people sought to find a shelter and a state for itself, and did so at a horrible price to another people. During the war of 1948, more than half of the Palestinian population at the time - 1,380,000 people - were driven off their homeland by the Israeli army. Though Israel officially claimed that a majority of refugees fled and were not expelled, it still refused to allow them to return, as a UN resolution demanded shortly after 1948 war. Thus, the Israeli land was obtained through ethnic cleansing of the indigenous Palestinian inhabitants. This is not a process unfamiliar in history. Israel's actions remain incomparable to the massive ethnic cleansing of Native Americans by the settlers and government of the United states. Had Israel stopped there, in 1948, I could probably live with it. As an Israeli, I grew up believing that this primal sin our state was founded on may be forgiven one day, because the founder's generation was driven by the faith that this was the only way to save the Jewish people from the danger of another holocaust.”
It should be pointed out that the last sentence above betrays a bizarre Jewish ethos and paradox: “god's chosen people”, bringing misery and destruction to other innocent peoples for whatever reasons of Jewish benefit, and still remaining god's chosen people continually speaking of a Jewish morality? What an obnoxious god - or what an obnoxious people. Which is true?
The Zionist Jews perhaps easily get out of this paradox by arguing that neither is true - because the Palestinians aren't people. From Herzl (1904): “We can be the vanguard of culture against barbarianism”, to the President of Israel (2001): “There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience.... [they] do not belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to a different galaxy”. And from Dier Yassin (1948) to Jenin (2003), the Zionofascist Israeli occupation of Palestine is the history of systematic killing of a 'lesser people' by a 'superior race'. Now where had this come up before in recent history?
The Americans have simply extended this murderous ethos a step further in their Zionist Neocons sponsored “war on terrorism”. The Muslims aren't people – it's okay to bomb, maim, mutilate, and torture them in the vilest ways possible. And we see the evidence of this use of “terror” as a weapon for “shock and awe” of civilian populations all around us, from the barbaric invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq on flimsy, unsubstantiated, and fabricated pretexts against a peoples clearly not able to defend against such attacks, to the indescribable tortures and heart wrenching indignities and humiliations of civilian prisoners in Guantanamo Bay and Abu Gharib - without suffering any pangs of conscience! Right out of the “terror” manuals of Zionist terrorists.
A dog tortured thusly would lend its tormentors behind bars for life in this US of A.
According to the ACLU's recovery of classified FBI documents through FOIA requests, and reported by the ACLU in a Press Release on December 20, 2004, quote:
' “These documents raise grave questions about where the blame for widespread detainee abuse ultimately rests,” said ACLU Executive Director Anthony D. Romero. “Top government officials can no longer hide from public scrutiny by pointing the finger at a few low-ranking soldiers.” The two-page e-mail that references an Executive Order states that the President directly authorized interrogation techniques including sleep deprivation, stress positions, the use of military dogs, and “sensory deprivation through the use of hoods, etc.” The ACLU is urging the White House to confirm or deny the existence of such an order and immediately to release the order if it exists. The FBI e-mail, which was sent in May 2004 from “On Scene Commander--Baghdad” to a handful of senior FBI officials, notes that the FBI has prohibited its agents from employing the techniques that the President is said to have authorized. '
' The June 2004 “Urgent Report” addressed to the FBI Director is heavily redacted. The legible portions of the document appear to describe an account given to the FBI’s Sacramento Field Office by an FBI agent who had “observed numerous physical abuse incidents of Iraqi civilian detainees,” including “strangulation, beatings, [and] placement of lit cigarettes into the detainees ear openings.” The document states that “[redacted] was providing this account to the FBI based on his knowledge that [redacted] were engaged in a cover-up of these abuses.” '
While the Zionist leaders have themselves been more forthright and unabashed about their use of “terror” tactics in the service of their agenda for Eretz Israel, their protégés use more circumspection and coverup their violations of the treaties of Geneva Conventions on Human Rights that they are a signatory to. Why?
Perhaps because the former has no fear of any consequences – being “god's chosen people”? Whereas the latter still harbors vague recollections of the “legalities” employed in the Nuremberg and Tokyo trials where the victors resoundingly denied they were purveying a “victors justice” to the vanquished, as they proceeded to hang them:
“If certain acts and violations of treaties are crimes, they are crimes whether the United States does them or whether Germany does them. We are not prepared to lay down a rule of criminal conduct against others which we would not be willing to have invoked against us” as loudly proclaimed by Justice Robert Jackson? (Quoted from Noam Chomsky in 'Western State Terrorism')
Apart from outright declaring that the Muslims and Arabs aren't human beings at all, what type of Jew would lay claim to be among “God's Chosen People”, but would not call Zionism a monumental crime against humanity, would not rise up to challenge it as 'Never Again, Not In Our Jewish Name' on another innocent people?
Here is one prominent voice, who on the one hand argues that the suffering of the Jews is so unparalleled that:
“It is a mystery whose parallel may only be the one of Sinai when something was revealed”,
and vociferously condemns the silence of those that allowed it to happen:
“and I still curse the killers, their accomplices, the indifferent spectators who knew and kept silent.”
But in the same breath excuses himself for his own silence on the atrocities committed by the Zionists on the Palestinians:
“Do not ask me, a traumatized Jew, to be pro-Palestinian. I totally identify with Israel and cannot go along with the leftist intellectuals who reject it. Perhaps another generation will be free enough to criticize Israel; I cannot.” Elie Wiesel, Against Silence, quoted by Mark Chmiel (79)
“My loyalty to my people, to our people, and to Israel comes first and prevents me from saying anything critical of Israel outside Israel. That is the price I pay for living in the Diaspora. As a Jew I see my role as a melitz yosher, a defender of Israel: I defend even her mistakes. Yes I feel that as a Jew who resides outside Israel I must identify with whatever Israel does - even her errors. That is the least Jews in the Diaspora can do for Israel: either speak up in praise, or keep silent. Therefore, I believe if I have something to say about certain things I do not like about Israel - and there are some - I must go there.” Director of Holocaust Museum and Nobel Laureate, Elie Wiesel, in 1972 before the United Jewish Appeal, quoted in Mark Chmiel's 'Elie Wiesel and the Politics of Moral Leadership' (87)
So much for defining the Zionists.
The Neocons on the other hands are the neoconservatives who believe that America has the right to rule the world at the barrel of their unmatched military might. That if America does not capitalize on its economic and military gains today when it is a monopolar superpower, it will lose the advantage tomorrow when other nations will catch up to the United States' lead. This philosophy entails the conquest and hegemony over outer space, and over all weaker nations under the sky that are of strategic interests.
The Neocons, a misnomer, largely come from the ruling elite in America, which directly or indirectly controls more than 90% of America's wealth but comprise way less than 1% of its population. Contrary to popular belief that the Neocons are only Republican Conservatives, they equally benefit and advise both political parties of America which have now become two faces of the same ruling elite with the same overarching strategic 'imperial' goals overseas. They perhaps only disagree on how to go about achieving these goals in their tactics, and their limited variance on domestic agendas. And therein lies the difference between the Democrats and the Republicans – a zero sum game of political choice in contemporary American Democracy in the New American Century.
Thus witness that Democrat Clinton carried on with the policies set up by Republican George Bush Sr. on Iraq – he did not deviate one iota from it during the eight years he was President, nor did he relent in his support of Israel through Israel's worst excesses in the occupied territories. The Oslo Accord that he so delightfully takes credit for as the “peace process” was the orchestration of the Zionist strategist that gave legal sanction for the creation of an Apartheid state in Palestine with Israel controlling all the small Bantustans in the West Bank, leading to the second Intifaada by the Palestinians.
Or witness more contemporarily, the 2004 election campaign that Democrat John Kerry waged against Republican George Bush Jr. – 'Bush ain't tough enough – I'll send more troops and even bomb Iran for Israel', even sending his own brother to deliver this message to the Zionist king-makers in Israel. He ran his candidacy as a 'Bush on Steroids'. But the Evangelicals had more faith in their Messianic figure who talks to god, than they did in the shrewd and timeserving Kerry. Had Kerry won, the world outside the shores of America would be no better off, except perhaps for the fact that he does not claim (yet) that god speaks to him. Thus he might be less prone to irrational moves as some intellectuals on the left believed when they signed a petition pleading people to not vote for anyone else but Kerry if they opposed Bush.
Great! What choices America provides its peoples when it comes to political leadership.
Compare that to the flavors of ice cream in the supermarket or the number of mind-numbing television channels and sports and underwear to indulge the “populist democracy” with!
If one looks at the membership of the Council for Foreign Relations, one finds names that would be surprising – the Progressive magazine (October or November 2004 issue) carried an interesting analysis of the composition of this illustrious group that advises all American Administrations. None of them have ever preached that America should live amicably with other nations as an equal, pursue a balanced and fair foreign policy in the Middle East that does not support Israel's apartheid regime, or not pursue globalization interests of American corporations to the detriment and exploitation of the developing nations – as these are contrary to Neocon's primary agendas for America not just dominating, but restructuring the world in a New World Order.
This was ominously prognosticated by George Kennan in 1948: “The day is not far off when we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts.” (See full quote further on).
And finally heralded in four decades later by President George Bush Sr. when he openly proclaimed it in September 1990, as the world stood at the brink of the first of the many battles for the pawns on the rapidly emerging Grand Chessboard: “Welcome to the 'grande baille' of the New World Order.”
Both the Zionist and the Neocon philosophies have become largely intertwined in the American political landscape through intense and sustained lobbying efforts from political lobby groups like AIPAC (American Israeli Public Affairs Committee), which has now come to control the destinies of almost all the Congressional members of both Houses in Washington.
Through strategic and institutional think tanks like JINSA (Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs), American Enterprise Institute, Heritage Foundation, etc. that are often the vanguard of American foreign policy initiatives that align American interests with Zionist interests. Many of the hawkish proponents of the war on Iraq and behind the Neocons policy initiatives are members of these institutions.
Through large American defense contracts that has not only made Israel one of the top arms contractors for the Pentagon, but also the fifth largest arms exporter in the world, with revenues of $3B in 2003, and expected to top $4B in 2004.
And through the Zionist control and Jewish ownership of the American media – a juggernaut of censorship that does not permit any criticism of Israel, and equates all such speech with “anti-Semitism” against the Jews. Even when such criticism is employed by conscionable Jews themselves who bravely object to the oppression and annihilation being purveyed in their Jewish names in a Nazi like fashion, they are conveniently labeled “self-hating Jews”, “leftist”, “anarchist”, or “bleeding heart liberals”.
Thus the terms Zionists and Neocons have become popular catchall designations among their critics for lumping any one who believes, supports, or acquiesces to both philosophies and actively engages in bringing them to fruition. However, this linear nomenclature masks the crucial distinctions that are necessary to uncover motivations and loyalties of individuals, separate the primary ideologues from their minions and supporters of convenience, and develop a proper full spectrum understanding of the forces that are shaping the world today. As the venerable Bernard Lewis explains it: “in devising means to fight the [super]terrorist, it would surely be useful to understand the forces that drive them.”
The term 'Zionist Neocons', or abbreviated to simply 'Zionists', is used here to denote the amoral Zionists who have adopted the Neocon agenda in order to further their own primary Zionist aspirations. They have no fixed loyalties, they refrain from making alliances with no one. “Enemy of my enemy is my friend” is their guiding morality, and “To wage war by way of deception” is the motto of their intelligence agency Mossad.
They eagerly adopt anyone's agenda that would further their own cause. Thus we see many Israeli spying operations over the past decades against the United States, their sole remaining benefactor in the world today. While there are many Israeli arms purchasers throughout the world, Israel has no friends except America. But even then, after pledging to cease spying on the United States after the Jewish American naval intelligence officer Jonathan Pollard was caught passing naval secrets to Israel in 1985 and convicted to lifetime in jail, a new Israeli spy probe has emerged in 2004, with the FBI investigating AIPAC for passing details of secretive Pentagon war plans regarding Iran, to Israel.
Even on the infamous sad day of the second “Pearl Harbor” in American history that saw at least 3000 Americans killed, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's public comments betray the Zionist mindset of exploiting anything and everything for their own unholy cause. The New York Times the next day carried the following:
'Asked tonight what the attack [on New York and Washington] meant for relations between the United States and Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu replied: “It's very good.” Then he edited himself: “Well, not very good, but it will generate immediate sympathy.” '
On the other hand, the term 'Neocon Zionists', or abbreviated to simply 'Neocons', is used here to denote the American neoconservatives who see Israel as an essential ally in America's hegemonic plans in the world of which the Middle East and its oil are a crucial component.
They support the Zionist agenda mainly to the extent that Israel aids them in their own imperial agenda of expanding and maintaining American influence in the Middle East, using Israel as a front-line state eagerly willing to engage in the imperial dirty work for the Americans – a major accomplishment of American Zionist organizations AIPAC and JINSA during the Cold War to sell this vision of their usefulness to the American policy makers.
As such, the Neocons use Israel for American interests, and Zionists use the United States of America for Israeli interests, in a marriage of mutual convenience. Noam Chomsky apparently does not recognize this nuanced distinction in the modernity du jour as he lays all blame for America's oppressive foreign policy calculus on unidimensional imperalists. While this may have been truthful in the past, it flies in the face of evidence that is plainly the trumpetting elephant in the bedroom today!
And while each one of these hegemons believe they are using the other, the common perception is that the Zionist control all the agendas – as openly admitted by Ariel Sharon to his foreign minister Shimon Perez in October 2001, when the latter was being a bit too cautious about some action against the Palestinians for Sharon's bulldozing tastes:
“Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.”
And this can be seen empirically as well in the voting records of the elected Representatives of the American people in Congress in favor of Israel, which is also the largest beneficiary of US tax payers monies in foreign aid over the past three and a half decades. And it can also be seen in the UN by the American voting record during the past half century – not a single vote is cast against any Israeli interests, rather any resolution condemning Israeli brutality in the occupied territories is unceremoniously vetoed in the UN Security Council, even when not doing so may often have been in America's own best interests.
These voting records speak the loudest and delineate the fact of the matter for all to see!
Though the aims of the Zionists and the Neocons often overlap and coincide, their individual motivations are widely different. This difference in motivation is important to fathom “in devising means to fight [them]”.
For instance, among those professing the traditions of the Christian faith, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Condoleeza Rice, are the seasoned Neocons. They really don't much have anything to do with religion – they just hail from that tradition, and are highly amoral in their expedient imperialist outlook of the world. And interestingly, most of their policies and strategies are actually crafted by seasoned and equally amoral Zionists working for them (below).
Dick Cheney, a Reagan ideologue, in and out of many administrations and corporations, is largely, though not exclusively, motivated by oil interests and Empire. A white supremacist racist, he voted against the Congressional Resolution demanding the release of Nelson Mandela from South African prison while a Congressman.
Donald Rumsfeld, the war-mongering Secretary of Defense is perhaps more inspired by Hermann Goering, Dr. Joseph Goebbels, Heinrich Himmler, and Adolph Eichmann combined – himself never having been to war, he predictably fancies himself a great warrior “Dulce bellum inexpertis”. He is an aggressive war hawk, and has been since the 1970s, delights in playing with nuclear toys, space conquest, sending other people's children off to fight for his Reaganite ideology of “moral clarity” for world domination , and is known to frequently practice secretly taking over the reins of the US government in preparation for national emergencies where he could run the nation and the world from underground bunkers with a few of his closest associates from Congress, the Pentagon, and the spook agencies. His fascist tendencies lend themselves readily to strategies crafted by the Zionist thinkers. He and Paul Wolfowitz have worked with each other at least since the 1970s, and presently he is the latter's boss.
Some examples of Zionist thinkers are Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Lewis Libby, Douglas Feith, Daniel Pipes, David Wurmser, and the list goes on. Many of them occupy important positions of authority and influence in the Bush White House and the Pentagon, as key strategists for the Neocon agenda, as well as for the Zionist agenda.
Paul Wolfowitz, the grandmaster ideologue, Deputy Secretary of Defense and National Security Advisor select for President Bush's second term, is an ardent Zionist Jew who has been in various American Administrations since the 1970s. It is often suggested that he himself is quite confused whether he works for the American People or for Israel.
Perhaps the confusion only stems from the fact that the two nations fly two separate flags – but are in reality one nation joined by common interests with often interchangeable flags and passports.
And such confusion persists across the board. Douglas Feith, Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, and in charge of Pentagon's Office of Special Plans (OSP), plays a wonderful dual role in the Pentagon along with Richard Perle (Ex. Chairman of the Defense Policy Board – a secretive organization reporting directly to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and now with American Enterprise Institute), and David Wurmser (Vice President Dick Cheney's Principal Deputy Assistant). The three of them co-authored the infamous and strategic policy paper in 1996 for Israeli Premier Binyamin Netanyahu “A Clean Break – A New Strategy For Securing The Realm”. The Realm being Israel. Today, they are among the key planners and instigators behind America's war on Iraq.
What an amazingly and indubitably fruitful marriage of convenience – more worthy of being officially legalized as state policy than the often contentious same sex marriage.
The Zionists control almost all of the popular news and entertainment mass media industry through Jewish ownership that is allied to, or at least sympathetic with, the interests of the Zionists: “The most effective component of the Jewish connection is probably that of media control.” Alfred M. Lilienthal. And Ted Turner, founder of CNN and media mogul, while not a Jew but sympathetic to the Zionist cause, affirmed: “There's really five companies that control 90 percent of what we read, see and hear.”
Today, even fewer, with the further consolidation of American airwaves under the new FCC rulings (issued by Chairman Michael Powell, son of Secretary of State General Colin Powell – keeping it all in the family). And 100% of the mainstream television media ownership, the source of news and views of over 90% of the American public, is now in the hands of mega Corporations: NBC owned by GE, CBS owned by Viacom, ABC owned by Disney, CNN owned by AOL-Time Warner. Their CEOs, corporate board members and many executives hail from the Jewish heritage, victimized for generations, and now controlling all the sources of information of their former tormentors.
Is it surprising that Time Magazine, a Zionist controlled enterprise, befittingly put President George Bush Jr. on its front cover, December 2004 issue, as the Time's man of the year? Is it to mock the Christians? Or is to honor their crusading hero rising to secure their realm, at the expense of getting the Christians and the Muslims to slaughter each other, with each feeling they are fighting a “just war”, and echoing the common theme “we were invaded weren't we”?
Understandably, no criticism of Israel, and Zionist sponsored Neocon policies are allowed to be aired in the host body (nation) of these parasites. Newer and more refined terminology is continually synthesized for press lexicons to sanitize their reporting, to make it more palatable to the American mainstream: a military attack on civilians is now ubiquitously referred to as an “incursion”; predictable civilian deaths during these major assaults with F16s and tanks on densely populated areas is now “caught in the crossfire”; settlements on occupied Palestinian lands are now called “neighborhoods”; territories forcibly conquered and occupied during war are now called “disputed” territories; demolition of Palestinian homes in refugee camps using D9 bulldozers, with the families often forced to evacuate within minutes, leaving all of their belongings inside and becoming dispossessed yet again, is termed “destroyed some structures” with no indication that these “structures” were actually homes that people lived in; resistance to occupation is termed “terrorism”; imperial mobilization is termed “war on terrorism”, and so on.
The same syntactic sugaring is also being applied to the mainstream press coverage of Iraq with the “embedded” American reporters news stories synthesizing a widely different image of the war and its human toll, from those filed by independent journalists like Dahr Jamail, and foreign correspondents like Robert Fisk.
All of this can very easily be verified by reading any American news daily, from the New York Times to a local town newspaper, and comparing it to coverage in overseas news papers. All sources of news feeds are similarly controlled by a handful of Corporations, with almost all American newspapers generally echoing what they receive over the wire for any of the “untouchable topics”. The George Orwell movie “1984” quite disturbingly captures this absurdity that passes for journalism and freedom of the press in America. Freedom to not report the truth – or print “All the News That's fit to Print” as the New York Times likes to put it on its front page every day.
Then of course, we also have the Evangelical Christians who support both the Zionists and the Neocons to the extent that it helps in their 'Rapture fantasy' and the goal of global Triumphalism of the convoluted perception of their religion:
To bring the world to Jesus even if it entails killing them all in the process. The return of the Jews to Palestine is Biblical Prophesy fulfilled indicating the end of time is near and the return of Christ might even be within their own lifetimes if they make haste – haste to return all the Jews of the Diaspora back to the Promised Land, even if it entails getting rid of the local Arab population, even if it entails an Armageddon when they fight back, heathens as they are, their extermination only hastens their departure to the much deserved hell anyway - bringing everlasting bliss for both the Evangelicals and the Jews (who will all be magically converted to Christ) with the arrival of their Messiah, a real man of peace.
George Bush Jr., the “leader of the free world”, knighting Ariel Sharon with the nom de guerre “man of peace” does indeed have some convoluted logic to it after all, as the latter is being instrumental in bringing about this everlasting peace for the Evangelicals!
And of course, this is entirely different from the Nazi ideology of achieving 'everlasting peace' for the superior Germanic race by invoking god to kill off all the lesser peoples! This crusade is for Jesus! Whereas the Nazi's were criminal racists who only hated the Jews. In case one did not detect a note of sarcasm here, it might surprise one to discover that Hitler, himself a fervent Christian, often invoked God in the service of his mission. His speeches, and his Mein Kampf are full of allusion to his Divinely ordained mission: “God does not make cowardly nations free”. Indeed, as Bob Fitrakis of 'freepress.org' asked in his column of September 1, 2004 titled 'Gott mit uns: On Bush and Hitler’s rhetoric':
'When was the last time a Western nation had a leader so obsessed with God and claiming God was on our side? If you answered Adolph Hitler and Nazi Germany, you’re correct. Nothing can be more misleading than to categorize Hitler as a barbaric pagan or Godless totalitarian, like Stalin.
At the beginning of Hitler’s crusade on April 12, 1922, he spelled out his version of the warmongering Jesus: “My feeling as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter.” Randall Balmer in The Nation, noted that “Bush’s God is the eye-for-an-eye God of the Hebrew prophets and the Book of Revelation, the God of vengeance and retribution.” '
Even if Bush's god is the Hebrew's god (given that Ariel Sharon is his “mentor” whereas Jesus is only his “favorite philosopher”), Bush has extracted far more “eyes” in revenge than his god allowed him, leaving a negative balance on the score.
If this all sounds too fantastic, impossible to believe, it cannot possibly be occurring in the modernity of Western Civilization in the post WW II era with all its penchant for rational thinking, human rights, and secular-humanism, all one has to do is to listen to their raging medieval sermons, and look at the rising religiosity in the increasingly Evangelical dominated American political landscape where big business and god shrewdly intersect.
Thus we see the 700 Club of the Evangelical Christian preacher billionaire, and long time family friend and supporter of the Bushes going back generations, Dr. Pat Robertson for instance, being one of the leading fund raisers and supporters of Israel. His informercials on late night American television and on his own CBN (Christian Broadcasting Network), generate millions of dollars by depicting the poor Russian or Eastern European Jew who is dying to return to the Promised Lands. They repeatedly tell the fairy tale of Palestine as the Promised Land, sparsely occupied by recalcitrant barbarians, who keep throwing stones at the holy chosen people of god who only desire to come to Palestine to fulfill god's eternal promise, and therefore it is a Christian duty to support them with $10, $25, $100 or any amount you can afford.
Talk of the fundamentalism of the Taliban fruitcakes and their madrassas! How easy it was for the American Neocons to bring mercy to them when they had out lived their purpose! When will it be the turn of the Evangelicals?
In this fundamentalist Christian camp we have such fanatics like the President's own chief law enforcement officer, Attorney General John Ashcroft, under whose purview falls the Patriot Acts. But he isn't the one who developed them. He was only too willing to enforce them, and just recently stepped down from his post. The ubiquitous strategic think tanks like the Rand Corporation that subcontracts for the Pentagon, under Zionist tutelage had these draconian measures prepared and ready to be introduced for years, only waiting for the opportune time (it isn't publicly known who actually developed it – but such think tanks are mostly populated with highly educated Zionists and Jews sympathetic to Israel; almost all having advanced degrees in the social sciences).
The over 350+ page document of Patriot Act I was introduced within a month of 9-11, and rubber stamped into legislation under the shock effect of 9-11 in October 2001, without anyone in Congress even reading it. The same is true of the 9-11 intelligence overhaul bill, which in fact disguises the Patriot Act II, the 60+ pages of which had been quietly circulated in Congress in 2003, and was waiting for an opportune moment to become law. This bill, ironically pressed for by the Democrats themselves, gave the Neocons the opportunity to sneak in their part 2 of the Patriot Act.
Geared towards the suppression of civil rights of American citizens and herald a surveillance society in America, with unprecedented powers of policing accumulated under a single centralized authority for the first time in American history, it passed through legislation without much debate, with both parties again eagerly endorsing it. Interestingly, in 1936, Hitler too consolidated Germany's police functions for the first time in German history as a prelude to the Nazi police state. Bush started that process by creating the department of Homeland Security and did just that with Patriot Act I.
Following that, as the next stage in the progression towards a police state, might be the blurring of the distinction between civilian policing functions, and military policing functions, in the pretext that the Constitution is getting in the way of locating and fighting the terrorists. Thus we already hear of MPs and soldiers chartered to guard George Bush's 2005 inauguration in Washington. Taken to its logical conclusion, it will result in a police state in America run by the military under the auspices of the Neocon Zionists.
Not the type we see in the vanilla imposed dictatorships in client-state nations with a centralized brutal dictator and the entire population against him. But a brand new type, only possible in America, where the dictatorship rests in the hands of its ruling elite, the military-industrial-corporate complex that Eisenhower had so presciently warned about to not let out of control, and where its populace plays a cooperative rather than an adversarial role in maintaining it!
We already see the people accepting all the indignities of physical pat downs at the airports at the hand of the TSA, many quietly acquiescing to it as a necessary evil to deter terrorists from getting on the plane. The only “terrorists” deterred so far and prevented from boarding their flights have largely been antiwar protesters, activists and other unsavory characters disliked by the Bush administration, including some members of Congress from the opposite side of the aisle.
This is according to a strategic preemption plan for Democracy, to systematically and in stages, deprive the public their Constitutional Rights to legally protest and voice dissent by creating a climate of fear, persecution, derision, and incarceration on any pretext and without producing evidence or criminal charges. Whereas note that in Israel, there is no such plan of record. Their press, their scholars, and their politicians openly debate all aspects of their colonization and “resettlement” of the Palestinians. Even the dissenters, refuseniks who refuse to serve in the IDF, and the Jewish peace activists, get their voices prominently heard in Israeli press, primarily because the majority of the Israeli citizens are complicit in the Zionist aspirations of the Jewish state. Whereas in America, the people have to be coerced, cajoled, and indeed fooled into launching a war of conquest. Thus truth has to be suppressed – and only a police state can put the muzzle on dissent.
Recalling the thirty-fourth U.S. President, Dwight D. Eisenhower's warnings at this point might be opportune:
“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience ... The total influence - economics, political, even spiritual - is felt in every city, every statehouse, every office of the federal government... In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influences, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex... The disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” The military-industrial complex should never be allowed to “endanger our liberties or democratic process.” Quoted from 'Eisenhower - Soldier and President' by S. Ambrose (536 – 537)
And this brings us of course to the modern day Christian Evangelical Emperor himself, the forty-third President of the United States of America, George W. Bush Jr.:
If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator.”
He has surrounded himself with both the Zionist and the Neocon ideologues of all stripes as advisors to guide him through the labyrinth of foreign conquest, who before he became President did not know who the President of Pakistan was, and when asked before the run up to the first elections in 2000 and afterwards how he was planing to run foreign affairs and be an effective commander-in-chief because he didn't seem to know much about the world, he candidly put it:
“I'm not going to play like I've been a person who's spent hours involved with foreign policy”, but “That's dependent upon the military advisors that would be advising me”, and “That depends upon my advisors and the people who know a heck of a lot more about the subject than I do”, and finally “A key to foreign policy is to rely on reliance.” Quoted in 'The Bush Dyslexicon'.
While immensely popular in the Bible Belt among the Rapture seeking Evangelical Christians, winning at most ~30.5% of the eligible voters support in the 2004 elections and being overwhelmingly rejected by ~70% of the American electorate (voter turnout of 60% was almost evenly divided between Bush and Kerry, whereas 40% of the eligible voters did not cast their votes rejecting both candidates), George Bush Jr. is perhaps the least complex and the most dangerous actor of them all in the White House.
Largely motivated by his Evangelical Christian Crusading zeal through frequent communion with his god, and anything that Karl Rove whispers into his ears, he is a very scary figure indeed. With direct access to god, he can press any button and pull any trigger without a reflective pause to the loud cheers of his 30% constituency in America:
“God told me to strike at al-Qaida and I struck them, and then He instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did, and now I am determined to solve the problem in the Middle East.”
Perhaps Nelson Mandela was not unduly concerned when he denounced President Bush over his initiating the Iraq war from false pretexts as the man who “cannot think properly”, perhaps referring to the war-mongering advice and fabricated pretexts he was getting from his advisors and god almighty himself.
What an alliance of real 'super terrorists' – the real non-fiction “axis of evil” under the American President's very own nose: Neocons, Evangelical Christians, and Zionists, with the latter being quite the mastermind strategists behind the others' agendas. If the American President is really serious about waging a real non-fictitious “war on terrorism” - all he need do is look in his own back yard for the mothers of all terrorists.
As he searches to “bring [christian] justice” to the terrorist in far flung subterranean caves, as a deeply religious Christian man, he might even do well to ponder on the allegory told by St. Augustine's in his seminal study “The City of God against the Pagans”:
“When the King asked him what he meant by infesting the sea, the pirate defiantly replied: 'the same as you do when you infest the whole world; but because I do it with a little ship I am called a robber, and because you do it with a great fleet, you are an emperor.' ” (148)
This real non-fictitious non-fabricated naturally occurring American “Axis of Evil”, the NZE (Neocons, Zionists, Evangelicals – pronounced Nazi), is strategically well placed in all sectors of the American society, from the News gathering Corporations to the News disseminating Corporations, to the White House and the Pentagon, with their well controlled surrogates occupying the Peoples Congress, State and Local Legislatures, and the Evangelical pulpits, funding and advising both political parties equally, providing advice and assistance to all successive American Administrations through the Council for Foreign Relations, myriad of think tanks and special interest groups, holding the reins of many a dictatorial regimes throughout the world through corporate and military alliances, and planning strategies of conquest a century in advance as is entirely manifest in how Herzl found Der Judenstaat!
They even call it by the bland name “Project New American Century”.
Thought to be the brainchild of Zionist Paul Wolfowitz, and indeed based on his earlier work of almost a decade earlier, under the tutelage of Neocon Dick Cheney in the first George Bush Sr.'s Administration when the defeat and dismantling of the Soviet Union left America center stage in world power, and it became apparent that America could now do whatever it well pleased along the lines laid out by George Kennan half a century ago. But since it had to couch it in terms that would be palatable to the American public, the Project report begins with these words:
“The Project for the New American Century is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to a few fundamental propositions: that American leadership is good both for America and for the world; that such leadership requires military strength, diplomatic energy and commitment to moral principle; and that too few political leaders today are making the case for global leadership.”
The moral principles they espouse of course, we have already seen an ample display of over the past four years – that 'might decides what is right'. The American leadership being good for the world is a rather oblique way of stating that America needs to dominate the world by any means possible, including military, and that such domination is good for America.
Their own children safely tucked away, the Neocon Zionists enlist the children of the mainstream poor and economically disadvantaged, from the American lower middle class minorities. Shedding their blood is deemed dispensable in the Darwinian social domestic order, for the execution of their plot of “imperial mobilization” for world conquest. Of course the blood of the enemy is deemed even more inconsequential. Waging endless wars on the Muslims, with a kill ratio of 1 to 100, with a destruction ratio of 0 to entire cities – the only ones quite predictably guaranteed to respond to oppression, just as they did against the Soviets in Afghanistan.
The only victims with powerful enough doctrines in their deeply felt religion to give at least a few among them the sustained motivation to keep on fighting in self defense against the aggressors for as long as the Emperor deems desirable. Even twenty five to forty years if properly and continually provoked - the time the imperial thinkers feel they have available for unchallenged supremacy to mold the world to their liking, before the world once again acquires a balance of hegemonic power with the rise of other nations and the Grand Chessboard reaches stalemate: “the U.S. Policy goals must be un-apologetically twofold: to perpetuate America's own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer”. And without such a contrived war against a terrifyingly vague and unknown enemy like the “terrorists” who might attack at any time at any place, the American public would not agree to fight overseas in wars of hegemony for a generation, because: “It is also a fact that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America's power, especially its capacity for military intimidation... Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.”
Zbigniew Brzezinski so boastfully proclaimed that he was responsible for “giving to the USSR its Vietnam War” in Afghanistan that started the American rise to unchallenged global power – using Muslim blood to bring down in a single decade what the Americans could not do despite trillions of dollars in military spending and four decades of Cold War – their World War III.
Quite predictably, as President Jimmy Carter's National Security Advisor and long range strategic thinker, Zbigniew Brzezinski enlisted the “Mujahideen” throughout the world to come to Afghanistan to fight the “infidel communist Soviets” occupying Muslim land – the CIA itself recruiting the now infamous Osama Bin Laden and many of his lieutenants for this purpose. The recruitment and training of the “Mujahideen” was managed directly by the CIA under Brzezinski's plan to use Islam as the rallying cry against the Soviets, and use Muslim blood to wear the infidels down in a rocky, dusty, never before conquered and sequestered land with only a single ingress and egress for the Soviets.
They came in droves, from across the Muslim world to fight the unjust occupiers, as predicted. And they fought them with everything they had, and did not have, bare footed, stones tied to their bellies, and persevering with the minimum of munitions gear of which most was supplied by the CIA like the Stinger missiles.
No nation on Earth can boast such hearty freedom fighters like the Afghans. So much so, that President Ronald Reagan, invited their leaders to the White House and referred to them as the “moral equivalents of our founding fathers” congratulating them for their sustained and energetic defense of their land.
The reward offered for this manipulated Muslim blood sacrifice? Abandoning the war ravaged land and its displaced peoples, millions of them refugees in the neighboring countries, and totally destitute after years of proxy warfare fought on their soil with their red blood. The two courageous nuclear armed power don't have the testosterone to use their own peoples to fight their own ideological wars – no! They need the convenient patsies – the Muslims – entirely disposable condoms!
Any lessons in this sordid history for this “lifetime” of “War on Terror” and the new boogie man of 'militant Islam'?
Indeed, the response of Zbigniew Brzezinski, in a 1998 interview with the French weekly magazine Le Nouvel Observateur is equally cold, calculated, and heartless as Madeleine Albright's quoted earlier. Brzezinski stated:
“According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the mujahideen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan on December 24, 1979. But the reality, closely guarded until now, is completely otherwise: Indeed, it was July 3, 1979, that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.”
Asked whether he regretted these actions, Brzezinski responded:
“Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter, essentially: ‘We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam War.’ ”
When further asked by the interviewer:
“And neither do you regret having supported Islamic fundamentalism, which has given arms and advice to future terrorists?”
The amoral grandmaster of all geopolitical Chessboards replied:
“What is more important in world history? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some agitated Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?”
A destroyed generation sacrificed at the altar of American ideology are only “some agitated Moslems”? In another translation, the phrase is “Some stirred-up Moslems”.
Of course, the thank you note was really delivered a couple of years later when the Taliban weren't being agreeable enough to the US oil company plans to build an oil pipeline from the oil rich but land locked Caspian basin and the newly independent Central Asian Republics to the Arabian sea running through Afghanistan. The Americans finally warned them in the summer of 2001: “either you accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you under a carpet of bombs” as reported by Jean-Charles Brisard, the author of Bin Laden, the forbidden truth, in an interview in Paris.
Even Niaz Naik, former Pakistani official for foreign affairs in a French television news program claimed that Tom Simons, the American representative, openly threatened the Taliban and even Pakistan. Naik stated that Simons said, “either the Taliban behave as they ought to, or Pakistan convinces them to do so, or we will use another option”. He further stated that the words Simons used were “a military operation”.
And the Americans indeed did, ostensibly in retaliation for 9-11, their new “Pearl Harbor”, which the Emperor wilily asserted without producing any shred of credible substantiated forensic evidence was the work of one Osama Bin Laden remotely executed from some subterranean or mountainous cave in Taliban controlled Afghanistan. The hungry, starving, and defenseless population in Afghanistan was mercilessly showered by an unprecedented million tons of Depleted Uranium bombing from 20000 feet in a strange algebra of infinite justice: “Civilians starving to death while waiting to be killed”, as Arundhati Roy so despondingly it. The utter and wanton destruction through radioactive poisoning of the very fabric of land that nourished the indigent and courageous people of Afghanistan from time immemorial followed. Now it lies in ruin with radioactive contamination from surface soil to the water tables, leaving only a legacy of systemic cancers and birth defects for the next thousand generations. They killed everyone except O Bin Laden. Like Elvis, he continues to surface every now and then as needed, to keep the faith of the American public alive!
A brave and fearless people, that Alexander could not conquer nor the British subjugate, with the destruction of their bloodlines and their future generations, almost a guarantee to once again invoke the predictable raison d'être for continuing a fresh supply of recruits to fight on the opposing side in the new “war on terrorism”. One can't fight the bloody lifetime of wars, that James Woolsey, another Zionist Jew, and former director of the CIA, calls World War IV, if there are no enemies, now can one?
With body bags coming home and shrinking voluntary enlistment, the Emperors legions now offer sign-on bonuses of $30,000 in the best tradition of corporations to the economically strapped, jobless, and unemployable youths educated in the dismal non-competitive public high schools throughout the American nation – perhaps specifically for this purpose. With even that not getting sufficient volunteers to lay down their lives for an ignoble cause, a chilling draft looms in the air.
One would hope that those caught in this draft will muster the sense and the courage to insist that the Presidential and other Imperial daughters and sons also board the same one-way flight to hell.
These “civilized barbarians”, the merchants of death and the harbingers of misfortune, the amoral Zionist Neocons and their temporary lovers and supporters of convenience, criminal la monumental, usually winning Nobel Peace Prizes and other accolades from the West, what deep seated resentment of humanity really motivates them?
Fighting wars of conquest using other peoples blood, sitting behind their mahogany desks along walls lined with prestigious degrees and photos of their beautiful smiling families, wearing expensive suits with cigars in mouth, remotely ordering the high tech destruction of the innocent civilians and their civilian infrastructures without getting their own suits soiled, deftly generating malicious propaganda to dehumanize and de-civilize those who dare to resist making it easier to eradicate them without protest by their own peoples, seeing the fruits of their “civilized barbarism” on their television monitors in realtime with reserved quietude or jubilant satisfaction as the case may be, so Kafkaesquely united with their own historical persecutors of two millennia under the fraudulent guise of an imagined self defense against self orchestrated pretextual wounds of the new “Pearl Harbor”, and so remorselessly biting the very Muslim hands that protected them through the centuries against the Christians swords that they now wield in their own hands - whence does this deep seated anger in the Judeofascist Zionist veins against the living stem from?
What makes them so calculating, devious, and united in their singular amoral efforts to bring mayhem to the world through wars, deception, and mind altering sustained propaganda in all dimensions?
Is it to ultimately extract their pound of flesh from their historical nemesis while fulfilling their dream of world domination according to the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”? Why do these writings, even if forgeries as claimed by the Zionists, appear to be so presciently clairvoyant in the light of the rising Jewish power in the West on all fronts, ranging from media and information access for the masses, to national, international, and private finance?
“To wage war by way of deception” – upon whom?
It started with the oppression of the Muslims for a higher geopolitical purpose on the Grand Chessboard: destruction of the Soviets, control of the world's oil spigots, and a sustained supply of recruits to threaten their own people with in order to get them to go along in fighting these lifetime of wars of conquest.
But who is to be next? The American people?
Already, the little known and hardly debated Patriot Act II, so conveniently buried inside the 9-11 intelligence reform bill, is awaiting the President of United States' signature before becoming the law of the land. It has set the stage for a surveillance and check point society in America in the best tradition of the Soviet Union, with little knowledge by the American people about how their freedoms are being systematically taken away without even their fully realizing it.
It has spelled the epitaph of America - “here lies freedom – you may thank the Judeofascist Zionists”.
But far worse than the Soviet Union where its people were under no delusions that they were free or lived in a free society, in America today the myth of freedom is incessantly perpetuated even as the Rights of its people are slowly taken away, one Patriot Act at a time, with the active connivance of their own elected Representatives. The Orwellian state that is purposely being created today was best captured by Goethe centuries ago:
“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free. The truth has been kept from the depth of their minds by masters who rule them with lies. They feed them on falsehoods till wrong looks like right in their eyes.”
Any American citizen still possessing the modicum of rationality to discern the truth from false propaganda, and courageous enough to publicly or even privately protest this turn of events in their own beloved nation, may now be deemed an enemy combatant by the state - the “terrorism” label is being deftly crafted for all Americans refusing to tow the line. That's what the new soon to become law can be used for with its finessed wordings.
Even the majority of Muslims, living under the yoke of oppressive dictatorships so adroitly maintained by the Emperor and his minions, are afraid of these labels because of the global reach of the Emperor.
While it's their brethren being butchered and slaughtered in unspeakable horrendous ways, reminiscent of the Mongol invasion of Mesopotamia centuries ago by the then “uncivilized” barbarians, they now watch in silent horror the new “civilized barbarians” having another go at Muslim blood and Muslim lands.
The controlling power of the Emperor's “war on terrorism” is so pervasive, that all Muslim nations are made impotent to not even consider uniting and fighting back in real self defense against an increasingly rabid and barbarous foe dexterously wielding a Christian Crusading army to achieve their goals.
Indeed, Muslims are being held in such a perpetual 'check' that they feel it safer to entirely ignore the commandment of their own religion to be fearless in waging a religiously mandated genuine jihad in self-defense (not the tortuous one Machiavellianly crafted for the 'islamofascists' by their handlers in order to pereputate the 'war on terror'): “unite against your enemies as they unite against you” and “fight in the cause of Allah (against) those who fight you, but be not aggressive; for surely Allah does not love the aggressors”.
Yet Muslims prefer to watch silently, only daring to pray in the privacy of their hearts, lest the genocidal calamities befalling the beleaguered Iraqis may start falling upon their heads as well.
Are the Muslims really so powerless?
Israel alone does not possess the matches to light the oil under the Muslim soil.
Muslims possess it too – even the uneducated taxi drivers struggling to make ends meet can provide elaborate commentary on it but only in hushed whispers lest the pervasive intelligence agents of the state hear them and have them “disappeared” - a frequent and normal occurrence now in almost all Muslim nations run as client-states of the Emperor.
A handful of city-busting nukes strategically placed in the geologically interconnected subterranean oil fields can make radioactive the entire world's interconnected oil beds. No refining process can decontaminate this lifeline of the West once poisoned. Whether practicable or not, it is a scenario that does not escape the popular imagination of those feeling the thunder of American bombs with no one to help them.
If realized, it is a weapon as destructive as the ten thousand nuclear bombs, mind numbing corporate media based propaganda, and preying globalization machinations in America's imperial arsenal deftly controlled by Zionist legions thirsty for both Muslim and Christian blood.
So thirsty in fact that the “Samson option” is even part of their Zionist political constitution – figuratively speaking (See Seymour M. Hersh's revealing book: 'The Samson Option: Israel's Nuclear Arsenal and American Foreign Policy').
Is it ostensibly to protect against the Palestinian Arabs fighting for survival against the Zionist invaders?
Or is it really against the Christian West as the final and unambiguous realization of “Never Again” in case the generally peaceable people of the West ever woke up from their deep hypnosis brought on by the incessant mind numbing inculcation in their popular culture for the pleasures of the flesh, and began groping for some nourishment for their intellect and succor for their souls.
The Grand Chessboard may have been set up by Zbigniew Brzezinski, but the king left standing after the mushroom clouds have settled on the Grand Chessboard may not be to the Zionists and the Neocons liking – either in the White House or in Tel Aviv.
The Judeofascist Zionist Neocons who started this World War IV, won't be the ones finishing it.
While they may have replaced the stars and stripes with the Star of David on the White House and Capitol Hill flagpoles, the long views of history suggest that barbarians are often replaced by new barbarians who become so by their unquenchable thirst to avenge themselves upon the marauding, murdering, pillaging, monumentally criminal conquerors.
As Nietzsche insightfully noted:
“Battle not with monsters lest ye become one; for when you look into the Abyss, the Abyss looks into you.”
This is only the beginning of the end of another cycle that started when Hitler came to power - and as Thomas Merton so forebodingly warned in 1936 when the world was poised at the threshold of World War II:
“If America fights Hitler, we will become Hitler”.
America emerging as the unchallenged successor to the British Empire after World War II – the destruction of whose three centuries long marauding colonial sway from sea to sea upon which the sun never set actually required the rise of a Hitler in Europe and the rise of a Hitler in Japan to dismantle the British Empire through a devastating World War II that saw over 40 million dead, mostly Christians killing Christians – quickly set into motion its own imperial agenda of global domination.
This is unabashedly vouched for by the American State Department's George Kennan in the once-classified Policy Planning Study 23 from 1948 (from Chomsky):
“We have about 50% of the world's wealth, but only 6.3% of its population .... In this situation, we cannot fail to be the object of envy and resentment. Our real task in the coming period is to devise a pattern of relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of disparity without positive detriment to our national security. To do so, we will have to dispense with all sentimentality and day-dreaming, and our attention will have to be concentrated everywhere on our immediate national objectives. We need not deceive ourselves that we can afford today the luxury of altruism and world-benefaction ....
We should cease to talk about vague and - for the Far East - unreal objectives such as human rights, the raising of living standards, and democratization. The day is not far off when we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts. The less we are then hampered by idealistic slogans, the better.”
With the demise of the Soviet Union through another expensive World War III that largely saw several million non-Christian blood shed in proxy wars fought between the Christian United States and the Christian Soviet Union – from Korea, to Vietnam, and finally culminating in Afghanistan – arose the singular and unchallenged superpower with a surplus of economic and military might that needed investing in the best tradition of the greed of wall street bankers – invest the surplus or it withers away.
Zbigniew Brzezinski, after giving to the Soviets their Vietnam and sacrificing an entire nation and its peoples without blinking an eye, and subsequently winning the first President he served a Nobel Peace Prize, brazenly revealed the inner thinking of the American superpower in his 1996-97 book “The Grand Chessboard”:
“The earlier empires were built by aristocratic political elites and were in most cases ruled by essentially authoritarian or absolutist regimes. The bulk of the populations of the imperial states were either politically indifferent, ... or infected by imperialist emotions ...a quest for national glory, 'the white man's burden', 'la mission civilisatrice', not to speak of the opportunities for personal profit - all served to mobilize support for imperial adventures to sustain essentially hierarchical imperial power pyramids. The attitude of American public toward the external projection of American power has been more ambivalent. The public supported America's engagement in WWII largely because of the shock effect of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. .... After the Cold War had ended, the emergence of the United States as the single global power did not evoke much public gloating but rather elicited an inclination toward more limited definitions of American responsibilities abroad. Public opinion polls conducted in 1995 - 1996 indicated a general public preference for 'sharing' power with others, rather than for its monopolistic exercise.” (24,25)
“It is also a fact that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America's power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public's sense of domestic well-being. The economic self-denial (that is defense spending), and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.” (35,36)
“Public opinion polls suggest that only a small minority (13 percent) of Americans favor the proposition that 'as the sole remaining superpower, the US should continue to be the preeminent world leader in solving international problems'. ... Moreover, as America becomes an increasingly multicultural society, it may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat. .... More generally, cultural change in America may also be uncongenial to the sustained exercise abroad of genuinely imperial power. That exercise requires a high degree of doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment, and patriotic gratification. ... Mass communications have been playing a particularly important role in that regard, generating a strong revulsion against any selective use of force that entails even low levels of casualties .... In brief, the U.S. Policy goals must be un-apologetically twofold: to perpetuate America's own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer,... Geostrategic success in that cause would represent a fitting legacy of America' s role as the first, only, and last truly global superpower.” (211-215).
Any English language teacher would give an A+ to that exposition. Daarth Vaider would make its expositor his First Lieutenant. And it might yet win Brzezinski the first Nobel Prize in Political Expediency when it is introduced. But for ordinary peaceable human beings who cannot understand the Machiavellian complexities of imperial minds, who cannot believe that this “war on terrorism” is about world conquest and not about fighting terrorism in the defense of the Homeland, let's parse that beautifully succinct exposition of avarice and plunder into plain English:
The American public is not interested in building a global colonial empire, that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad, and that the public would rather share power with other nations of the world. This limits America's ability to militarily dominate other nations because the public perceives it as being at the cost of domestic social spending and loss of young blood. However there is one exception to this, that when there is a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat, the public tends to rally around the flag and will support the government in pretty much any endeavor. To sustain this support requires three additional factors: a) a high degree of doctrinal motivation (such as Communists are evil, or Islamic terrorists are out to get us), b) intellectual commitment (such as thinking about the doctrine must make it appear intellectually compelling to foster adherence) , and c) patriotic gratification (such as fighting a just cause and winning with few casualties with stories of heroism and nobleness making the public feel good about their country and themselves). The modern mass media has demonstrated its immense power in shaping public opinion against war in which there are even low level deaths and sufferings. It is all summed up so very beautifully in the words: “Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.”
As if to support these bold contentions of Zbigniew Brzezinski, a relic of the cold war, about America's imperial aims, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld, Elliot Abrams, Jeb Bush, I. Lewis Libby, Zalmay Khalilzad, Steve Forbes, Frank Gaffney, Donald Kagan, Fred C. Ikle, Paula Dobriansky, Peter W. Rodham, are among the 25 Neocons who signed a Statement of Principles dated June 3, 1997, in which they argued similarly for the primacy of the United States. The Statement of Principles appear in the “Project New American Century” (PNAC) that was released publicly on the internet in 2000, a whole year before 9-11. Among the many contributors to the PNAC are also listed Richard Perle, and Dov Zokham.
PNAC formed the basis behind a letter dated January 26, 1998 that the members of PNAC wrote President Clinton urging him to remove Sadaam Hussain from power to “end the threat of weapons of mass destruction against the U.S. or its allies”. Among the 19 signatories of this letter to Bill Clinton are Elliot Abrams, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Paula Dobriansky, Richard L. Armitage, John Bolton, William Kristol, Robert Kagan, Richard Perle, R. James Woolsey, William Schneider, Peter W. Rodham, and Zalmay Khalilzad.
If one does a who's who in President George Bush's Administration, it is perhaps not too shocking to see all these war hawks of American primacy who argue pursuing “a foreign policy that boldly and purposefully promotes American principles abroad”, occupying positions of power and influence across the board, often mixing Israeli interests, with American hegemonic interests. These are the same experts on foreign policy, that George Bush stated he will be relying on: “That depends upon my advisors and the people who know a heck of a lot more about the subject than I do” to tell him whom to attack next, as the god of vengeance and retribution whispers in his ears about “bring[ing] justice to our enemies” for 9-11.
The Statement of Principles in the PNAC report, echo Zbigniew Brzezinski for its unambiguous articulation of the overarching goals of the American empire in the twenty-first century:
“... We are in danger of squandering the opportunity and failing the challenge. We are living off the capital -- both the military investments and the foreign policy achievements -- built up by past administrations. Cuts in foreign affairs and defense spending, inattention to the tools of statecraft, and inconstant leadership are making it increasingly difficult to sustain American influence around the world.
... We seem to have forgotten the essential elements of the Reagan Administration's success: a military that is strong and ready to meet both present and future challenges; a foreign policy that boldly and purposefully promotes American principles abroad; and national leadership that accepts the United States' global responsibilities.
... we need to accept responsibility for America's unique role in preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles. Such a Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity may not be fashionable today. But it is necessary if the United States is to build on the successes of this past century and to ensure our security and our greatness in the next.”
And of course, included is the traditional disingenuousness that must always accompany such goals for the lay public's consumption, as the democratic instincts of the public and imperial ambitions of the Neocons cannot be reconciled with each other, and therefore must be disguised:
“[...] we need to promote the cause of political and economic freedom abroad”.
Zbigniew Brzezinski too added a similar sugar coat in his 'Grand Chessboard' when he wrote that “the ultimate objective of American policy should be benign and visionary: to shape a truly cooperative global community.” However, his view of cooperation underlies a world cooperating with America in America's best interests. Like the subsequent PNAC report, nowhere in the 'Grand Chessboard' did Brzezinski address the morality, or indeed any issues of global, social, economic, and political injustices and oppression stemming from embarking on such an imperial conquest, as that would be too antithetical to his entire premise that a lone superpower nation like America is naturally entitled to “primacy” as “Hegemony is as old as mankind”. Instead, he boldly asserted that it was a natural imperative, almost a law of civilizations, “to [un-apologetically] perpetuate America's own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer”. PNAC simply restated that: “a foreign policy that boldly and purposefully promotes American principles abroad”.
Whence “promote ... freedom abroad”? At the hands of those who handed the “USSR its Vietnam war” at the expense of “some agitated Moslems” for the higher cause of liberating Eastern Europe?
When the even greater legacy they seek now at the expense of even more Muslim blood is one of:
“Geostrategic success in that cause would represent a fitting legacy of America's role as the first, only, and last truly global superpower”?
This can also be seen by witnessing who is the strongest ally of America among her possible enemies – General Pervaiz Musharraf the dictator President of Pakistan who is an adroit master of political machinations, and Hossni Mubarak the dictator President of Egypt for 23 years – both strongly endorsed and actively supported by the Emperor as erstwhile and trusted allies in the “war on terrorism”. Not a whole lot differently than how the dictator President of Iraq Sadaam Hussain was installed and supported for decades in the service of the American empire.
Thus today as the “war on terrorism” proceeds at full pace, no one remembers to ask the Emperor, his minions, or his adroit Zionist and Neocon sponsors how Sadaam got in power in Iraq in the first place, nor how he was kept in power and cleverly exploited to foist an aggressive war on Iran, nor when he finally outlived his usefulness, how he was once again deftly maneuvered into invading Kuwait by the American Ambassador who informed him of the US State Department view that any dispute between Iraq an Kuwait was their internal matter as far as the Americans were concerned, thus giving the dictator the so called “green light”. And neither does anyone asks today who keeps Musharraf, Mubarak, and the various and sundry kings in power despite their own people's opposition to them.
Indeed, as Winston Churchill noted in the waning years of British colonialism, that one does not physically have to colonize a nation in the post-colonial era. It can just as effectively be done, and also be a lot cheaper in the long run, by installing a client-state that serves your interests. That has been the history of the post World War II era, especially in the Middle East, Africa, and South-Central America. The quintessential social Darwinian, Churchill had also stated to the Palestine Royal Commission in 1937 when making a case for a Jewish State:
“I do not admit... that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America, or the black people of Australia... by the fact that a stronger race, a higher grade race... has come in and taken its place.”
The right to subjugate others is felt innately in the European blood, the progenitors of American hectoring Neocon hegemonists.
It is also the blatant reality in Iraq today with Paul Bremer, its American Administrator, bequeathing them over a 100 edicts that cannot be changed by any peoples government in Iraq any more than the people of Afghanistan can claim representation from their American installed puppet Hamid Karzai. Both coming to power by a well managed election no less (in Iraq it is actually yet to come to power – but its efficacy to legitimately represent the Iraqi people would be as non-existent as it itself is today). But then the Bush Reich also came to power in an election. The new Machiavellian mantra for installing dictatorships and client-states legally – hold an election for preselected choices and out comes.
What does it mean to have an election with an invader foreign occupying power controls the reins of the country is left for victors' history books to uncover.
So much for promoting “freedom abroad”, never mind freedom at home.
Quite a prescient and ominous message to the Muslim masses in all the Muslim nations – act now to remove your own dictators yourselves or else removing them on your behalf will be the excuse to attack and conquer you next. Apparently it is harder to attack a real functioning democracy because excuses, pretexts, and legal maneuverings become harder to come by in a proper system of checks and balances. And still harder to attack a nuclear armed foe.
What message does that send Iran? They would be total idiots to not acquire this deterrent by hook or by crook ASAP – the only language American Empire understands as evidenced by its gentle handling of North Korea. The Persians should feel wise to unilaterally abandon the NPT (Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty), much as the United States has unilaterally abandoned its pledges to the signatories of NPT, and openly adopted its Neocon sponsored preemptive nuclear strike against non-nuclear nations stance since 9-11.
According to Zbigniew Brzezinski, in a conversation broadcast on American public television, this had always been the unstated and unadvertised prerogative of the United States, even pre 9-11, but now it has become an active and overt foreign policy initiative.
This was initially disclosed in a Los Angeles Times article by William Arkin, who revealed the contents of the White House's Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) that had been given to Congress for review in January 2002 and magically “leaked” out. The White House had ordered the Pentagon to draw up war plans for first strike use of nuclear weapons against seven states: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria, North Korea, and the two nuclear powers Russia and China. The NPR further calls for nuclear war-fighting plans for first strikes against 1) alleged nuclear/chemical/biological materials or facilities; 2) against targets able to withstand non-nuclear attack; 3) in the event of surprising military developments; 4) intervene with nuclear weapons in wars a) between China and Taiwan, b) between Israel and Arab states, c) between Israel and Iraq, d) between North and South Korea.
Subsequently, the NSC (National Security Council) strategy documents on the White House web site openly postured preemptive strikes, both nuclear and non-nuclear, arguing that the best defense is an offensive war against all possible enemies. They have unilaterally wiped out the concept of détente and negotiated settlement that had withstood the test of time during the Cold War (unless of course it is against nations that can hit back – then negotiations are back in vogue). Thus couched in the language of self-defense, is finally the arrival of the day “when we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts” of the New World Order.
The White House has now even commissioned the design of new Nuclear bombs to add to its arsenal of the 10,000 or so existing ones, as deep earth penetrating bunker busters. It has sold Israel 500 bunker buster bombs just this year (2004) in anticipation of the attack on Iran.
Why should Iran, in the good Lord's name, even the one who talks to George Bush, feel shy in openly and aggressively seeking to protect itself? Why should the world impose restrictions on one's own self-defense? And why would any self respecting nation accept such suicidal strangulation?
The best defense for every nation on earth, like for the United States of America, as claimed by her leaders, is now an offensive strike capability against their enemies. A strong nuclear deterrence from the covetous roving eyes of those attempting to dominate others. God hasn't accorded the Americans alone the right to self-defense – even when George Bush may messianically claim divine charter for such exclusive rights, and Israelis may claim “chosen people” status for similar exclusive rights.
It is only the social Darwinian pecking order of nations that enables the strong to prey on the weak, not any self-evident inalienable rights bestowed by a deity on the Americans and the Israelis.
Indeed, in the post-colonial era, it has always been the intent of international Darwinism to keep the less powerful and less developed nations from ever raising their heads:
“insignificant nations, like insignificant people, can quickly experience delusions of significance,” he explained. And when they do, these delusions must be driven from their minds by force: “In truth, the days of ‘gunboat diplomacy’ are never over... Gunboats are as necessary for international order as police cars are for domestic order”, writes Noam Chomsky, quoting Irving Kristol about US intervention in Nicaragua in the 1980s – in 'Western State Terrorism' Ch. 2.
Even a single nuclear device acquired from any of its nuclear armed neighbors and exploded in a loud test would see the Zionist Neocons scurrying back into their holes. This is also something that would serve China's long term interests in preventing the control of this important oil spigot in the Caspian from also falling into the imperial hands of the marauding Americans – they too can perceive that the Grand Chessboard is being setup primarily for their benefit. A China-Iran alliance with a mutual defense pact may yet emerge.
China already holds much of American economy in the palm of its hand, with America's major consumer production bases on their soil or in the Pacific Rim. If not an overt alliance that could potentially jeopardize China's economy, then at least a secret transfer of two nuclear bombs capable of striking Tel Aviv and other European cities will be sufficient deterrence for all foreseeable attacks on Iran. Iran need not even make a loud explosion to deter an attack, only let it credibly be known that the fates of Tel Aviv and London hang in the balance – their own far more credible “Samson option” than Israel's.
For in the very ethos of their Islamic beliefs, martyrdom in national self-defense is a worthy cause. The same ethos that is devilishly being used to generate recruits to fight against in the “war on terrorism”, can also checkmate them. Both the Israelis and the American soldiers in Iraq can vouch for their deadly power, as can the high school students of American history when they read that the pioneering founder of their nation who won them independence from the British, had this rallying cry: “give me liberty, or give me death”. The British tried – he was perhaps one of their most wanted “terrorists”, and failed.
A similar game of deterrence was played by General Zia ul-Haq of Pakistan when he got an Indian journalist Kuldip Nayyar “invited” to an exclusive never before granted interview with the most heavily guarded man in Pakistan, the father of its nuclear bomb Dr. A.Q. Khan, in the mid 1980s when India was being a bit too belligerent against Pakistan. The journalist reported back to New Delhi and India backed off. What did Dr. Khan tell him? Perhaps “hey, Kuldip check this photograph out; don't I look cool sitting on that thing”! North Korea tried to do the same thing, even gave the American observers a tour. No rush trying to attack North Korea because the Americans estimate (publicly at least) that they have 2 to 8 big bangs that can hit S. Korea and Japan as a last resort “Samson option”. Regardless of how despotic the North Koreans may be perceived, no one is attacking them, although perhaps if Richard Perle was the President, he just might. They have conveniently been put on the back burner for future use as one of the bogey men identified in the “axis of evil”.
If this is not what is being thought in Tehran, and being discussed in Beijing, then the Iranians must be idiots indeed. And if this is not part of the American war game scenarios in the Pentagon, and the Zionist Neocon's eternal nightmare, then the American planners must be just as idiotic. They have been known to underestimate the resilience of their enemies once or twice before!
Indeed, in an insane world where the sane die first, even a few nukes can become a great equalizer for the thousands on the other side.
Either everyone must have the deterrence power to deter war, or no one should have it. Only some having it and precluding others from acquiring it, creates a predatorial world. These were the prescient fears of Robert Oppenheimer, the conscionable bomb-maker (what a nonsequitur), labeled a traitor by the United States when he expressed his vision for “a world that is united, and a world in which a war will not occur". These fears might finally become a reality, thanks to George Bush and his Judeofascist Zionist New World Order. Indeed, to rationally protect oneself from the primacy of the Judeofascist, this is now the only commonsensical self-defense option left to the 'lesser' nations!
Even Brzezinski lamented the fact that the reality of nuclear powered Pakistan now unfortunately necessitates a different treatment for Pakistan from America's other nemeses in her foreign policy calculations.
Pakistan absolutely must not be allowed to have a real Democracy. A reflection of the popular sentiments of her peoples in her leadership can make Pakistan's Nuclear defense umbrella available to other Muslim nations in a NATO like mutual defense treaty – attack on one equals attack on all.
Thus the rush to cozy up to the Pakistani dictator – indeed some suggest he was actually installed there in the first place due to the unpredictability of the predecessor's equally corrupt but elected Government. An appointed military dictatorship can always be counted on to unquestioningly do the master's bidding, as Musharraf has demonstrated since 9-11. Whereas an appointed people's government cannot be so easily controlled in times of crisis. Especially one whose leadership begins to aspire to the title of “Amir-ul-Momeneen” as Musharaf's predecessor did, and who despite intense pressure from Washington, went ahead with Nuclear tests in 1998 making Pakistan a declared Nuclear power state to the eternal lament of the Zionist Neocons.
If Persians are anything, they are not idiots. Iranians can read political cues as effectively as anyone else, especially with the American bases now right next door to them, and drills for the invasion of their country already being conducted accompanied by the same deceptive media propaganda that preceded Iraq's invasion. They can also read the PNAC strategy available for everyone to see over the Internet.
The PNAC report on Rebuilding America's Defenses envisioned the world's energy shortage, and militarily occupying the oil-rich Gulf region was set as the agenda for the New American Century. It is extremely clairvoyant for it accurately predicts all the actions that America undertook subsequent to 9-11, even to the extent of spotlighting Iraq, Syria and Iran, and militarizing the world and its skies with the American military muscle. The invasion of Iraq is foreshadowed in that report, whether or not Sadaam Hussain was in power.
And Donald Rumsfeld (one of the signatories of this report) within hours of 9-11, ordered to prepare plans to attack Iraq.
We all know the incredible deception game that was subsequently played out about WMDs and imminent dire threats from Sadaam Hussain that could destroy the Western civilization as we know it, etceteras, etceteras, etceteras. All for the benefit of the American audience to get them to heel obediently by scaring them witless about another potential 9-11 catastrophe in the making if Iraq was not attacked with America's full might using the best and loudest in America's lethal arsenal for “Shock and Awe” of the mad Arabs. A script taken right out of the Nazi war manual it seems:
“Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ... Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.” Hermann Goering, at the Nuremberg Trials.
Vice President Dick Cheney: “ think that the prospects of a future attack on the U.S. are almost a certainty. It could happen tomorrow, it could happen next week, it could happen next year, but they will keep trying. And we have to be prepared.” and “It’s not a matter of if, but when,” and “There's no question that there were failures, But I can't say at this point that even if we had all those pieces together that it would have led to the conclusion that they were going to hit the Trade Center, the Pentagon, et cetera.” On Fox News Sunday, and NBC Meet the Press, May 19, 2002.
“If we make the wrong choice, then the danger is that we'll get hit again, that we'll be hit in a way that will be devastating from the standpoint of the United States.” On the campaign trail talking against Kerry, September 10, 2004.
When Cheney is in power in 2002, he warns with “almost a certainty” of a future attack; when there is the possibility of him not being in power in 2004, he warns with equal candor that “we'll be hit again” if the voters throw him out of power. What is constant? The “threat” factor – which both Zbigniew Brzezinski, and his predecessors in the third Reich, predicted was necessary to keep the public motivated for war.
The very day of 9-11, within hours, Donald Rumsfeld is said to have ordered operational war plans to be prepared for Iraq; while David Frum, President Bush's speechwriter stated that he was asked to come up with a justification to attack Iraq for the President's famous “axis of evil” State of the Union address (David Frum, in The New Yorker, Jan 13, 2003); with many of the Zionist war hawks including Richard Perle arguing for years to make “Baghdad look like Hiroshima with shock and awe”. In order to carry the American public along with them on their dastardly mission, they reemployed this “threat” propaganda model masterfully, linking 9-11 and al-qaeeda with Sadaam Hussain and his purported WMDs threatening another 9-11.
Donald Rumsfeld repeated ad nauseam how Sadaam Hussain was hiding the WMDs in various places in Iraq; when none were found, he stated: “all of these weapons have been smuggled into Syria”! Why Syria? Well Iran and Syria are the other two sovereign nations identified for attack in the PNAC report – that both Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney had signed years before 9-11. The actual war on Iraq materializing was a dream come true for their Zionist war hawk and ideological co-conspirator, Richard Perle, member of JINSA, Defense Policy Board, PNAC and American Enterprise Institute – all Zionist enterprises that seek the dominance of Israel in world affairs by eliminating even the minuetest threats to the ascendance of Star of David.
Gadfly Tariq Ali, the famed British writer and author of “Clash of Fundamentalisms”, reported in a talk held at University of California Berkeley in May 2003, that four editors from the UK Guardian “unofficially” met with the British Prime Minister Tony Blair after the blitzkrieg over Iraq had ended and Sadaam had disappeared, and asked him (quote from my memory): “Mr. Prime Minister, may we ask where are the famous weapons of mass destruction?” Tony Blair, as dramatized by Tariq Ali, simply stared at them and said: “you don't get it do you, it's about Syria and Iran, now we don't have to bomb them because they will acquiesce”. The implication being that since Iraq had already been disarmed over the years and could not defend itself, it was an easy target to set an example by for all others.
Further elaboration on the details of the shameless deception game played on the American and world public to attack Iraq, plans and intentions for which had been premeditated, pre-articulated, and preset; the dark blemish that it has brought the “coalition of the willing” (or rather the “coalition of the coerced”) and the Nuclear bystanders Russia, China, the European Union, who acquiesced to its transparent deceit each for their own expedient reasons; need not be rehearsed here, except to recall that it served its intended propaganda purpose very well – about 40% of the American public still believes as of today (December 2004), that Sadaam Hussain was behind 9-11 and was imminently threatening the free world.
The only reason the majority of American public seems to be in disfavor of continuing the war on Iraq and calls it a quagmire, is because of the valiant struggle put up by the so called “terrorists”. If there had been fewer US casualties (the ratio is 1 to 100 according to the best estimates by the British Lancet medical journal that indicates over 100,000 Iraqi civilians dead), the same war on Iraq would have been pretty unanimously hailed a huge success by the mainstream American people.
Iran can easily anticipate the next steps to be played out by the marauders, as can any rational person not completely taken in by the mantra of “war on terrorism”. Already, the crescendo of “they can strike with Nuclear weapons within hours” can be heard from Israel, Colin Powell, and the malcontent Persian royalties living in Los Angeles who dream of resuming their seating on the imperial Peacock throne of their father.
Thus we see that the young brash empire that emerged victorious from the ashes of World Wars II & III has been less than benign, and less than benevolent to the rest of the world in the name of “American interests abroad”, and far less honest with its own peoples through systematic lies and deception games to keep them willingly towing the imperial line since its very inception as a super power on the global scene. The history of lies and deceit from the war mongering leaders in the White House through the past 60 years need not be rehearsed here. The pretexts for making war, including “giving to the USSR its Vietnam war” are well understood. All of these are evidence that a government can no more be trusted in Russia, than it can be trusted in the United States of America.
This history of American Presidents and their private wars establishes that the US government officials have a long and distinguished history of telling lies, especially when they engage in wars, and for pretexts they create to engage in wars. The best first hand account of which can be found in Daniel Ellsberg's 'Secrets – A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers'. 'Gulf of Tonkin' affair as a pretext to the Vietnam War is also well documented. The Iran-Contra affair that was even globally televised is still fresh in the minds of many about the 'noble lies' American civil servants tell in the 'patriotic' service of their country. Interestingly, many of the players from the Ronald Reagan Administration are also the ones running the Bush Administration.
Exhibit A: any unsubstantiated and unproven testimonies, oaths, statements, investigative reports, by the US government officials and leaders on any subject in which they can be potentially incriminated, cannot be trusted, and cannot be used as corroborating “evidence” in support of their own positions;
Exhibit B: the US government made extraordinary and deliberate haste in disposing off and destroying all the 9-11 evidence without conducting any forensic studies of the debris that might have shed light on the crime, an unprecedented destruction in the history of both aviation and engineering that would under normal procedures for investigation would have been properly secured, analyzed, reconstructed, and poured over for years by teams and teams of investigators;
Exhibit C: open proclamations by the Neocons of their agendas and their open collusion with the Zionists, as explained here, provides a premeditated motive to wage war;
Exhibit D: the Neocons and the Zionists are the only ones who benefited from 9-11, as a new “Pearl Harbor” event that enabled the United States to wage wars with the American public's consent in an open agenda clearly delineated by the beneficiaries;
Exhibit E: Israel is the only country that openly benefitted from 9-11, as vouched by its own Ex. Prime Minister Binyamin Nethanyahu, quoted earlier;
Exhibit F: Israel is the only other country that benefits from waging this war for its long sought agenda of Eretz Israel on Arab lands which comes closer to fruition with the destruction of each Arab town, village, city, and peoples;
Exhibit G: no Muslim country, no Muslim peoples benefited from 9-11, as they are openly bearing the brunt of the blame and vengeance by the world's most powerful nation;
Exhibit H: the high prowess of America and Israel to wage wars of deception through high tech means is an acknowledged fact, with all possible means of bringing about destructions unimaginable, as well as telling stories about the destructions, are at their disposal;
Based on Exhibits A – H, when the US government alleges that 9-11 was the work of Osama Bin Laden from a cave in Afghanistan, without producing any credible evidence, without explaining any of the government's own failures that day, without credibly answering any of the hundred questions that have been raised by the American peoples themselves for whom none of the government's story makes any sense, any respectable judge in a respectable and fair court of law would indict the US government with these findings:
Finding 1: the US government had the motive, the means, and became the prime beneficiary of the crime,
Finding 2: their bewildering allegations and explanations for 9-11, are at best a very weak conspiracy theory of their own,
Finding 3: especially, since the government's best evidence for the crime, a list of 19 names of dead hijackers that the government seemed to have magically pulled out of a hat within some hours of 9-11, have 6 quite alive and well, innocent of any crime, living peacefully in various countries, that their evidence is at best unreliable,
Finding 4: and since the remaining 13 dead people in question are presumably already dead, and cannot defend themselves against these allegations, and since there are no eyewitness that saw them commit the highjacking, given the bizarre nature of the suicidal crime in which dead peoples can tell no tales, there is no merit in the government's case that these remaining 13 were indeed the hijackers,
Finding 5: the government could just as easily claim that leprechauns from Ireland did it – and there would be no way for anyone to argue against that either because dead peoples tell no tales, except that the Irish don't seem to have any geostrategic significance on the Grand Chessboard,
Finding 6: there are other far more credible “conspiracy theories” that many seasoned researchers have pieced together which can be perused on the Internet, which explain far more than the government's unsubstantiated conspiracy theory of vengeful Muslim hijackers which explains very little.
Based on these findings, all 1000 members of the US government, its secret agencies including DIA/CIA/FBI/DEA/NSA/, and its highest ranking military personal including NORAD/NATO/PENTAGON are to be held in maximum security custody in Guantanamo Bay without bail, and without legal representation, as potential “Enemy Combatants” against the Peoples and Constitution of the United States of America, until an unbiased and fair prosecution commission can uncover the real truth behind the crime of 9-11. All truths related to waging wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are already known and for which Monumental War Crimes Tribunals will be commissioned in parallel.
Where does one find such a judge in America?
While we are searching for such a just judge, the evidence of a Fourth Reich in the making domestically continues to grow all around us. The evidence for the “good Germans” being replaced by the “good Americans” are also sadly increasing all around us. The evidence for “incestuous” thinking largely seeded by the Zionist Neocons and further promulgated by “all the President's men” in their press suits is becoming pervasive around us.
But only the few can see it – and are characteristically dismissed as conspiracy theorists, unpatriotic subversives, and even incarcerated as terrorists; “When stupidity is considered patriotism, it is unsafe to be intelligent.” They do not take any comfort in the fact that as “canaries” of conscience and harbingers of truth, history will once again prove them right – there may be no one left to write these histories.
Who will be the next inheritors of the present day 'Hitler' in this eternal cycle of only a tyrant being able to overthrow a tyrant as vouched by the bloody exploitative history of human civilization?
The fabricated “war on terrorism” being replaced by a real war between unbridled stupid greed of the powerful and innocence shattered? “War makes the victor stupid and the vanquished vengeful” as Nietzsche had noted.
Would it be the innocent victims of this new holocaust of American made and Zionist spurred Depleted Uranium bombs?
Or perhaps the young workers – the new slaves of economic desperation - who slog for 5 cents a shirt 18 hours a day in the sweat shops from Bangladesh to Jordan for the benefit of American Corporations in the name of Globalization?
Or perhaps even those who are forced to stay perpetually hungry and shelterless amidst the plenitude of the handful, by Western Economic policies forced down the throats of their former colonies in continuation of colonial rule through tyrannical proxies, that only increase the disparity between the rich and poor?
Would the millions of these denizens of all these tortured lands rise up to form an Allied invasion force to fight the 'New Hitler'?
Perhaps it is in anticipation of such an alliance that high security walls of suppression of truth and curtailment of civil liberties with draconian laws are being built in America – like the physical one surrounding the West Bank in Palestine.
Thus a double whammy – destroy the civil society of America either through actual invitation for revenge by the aggrieved, or by taking away the liberties and freedoms of its peoples and converting the free civil society into a surveillance police state in the name of protecting the people from an hypothetical and fictitious invasion by the beard-toting 'Islamic terrorists' from subterranean caves.
What a sting operation on their arch nemesis – a largely Christian country - by the handful of diabolical Judeofascist Zionist Jews.
Robert Jensen wrote a piece on December 9, 2004 titled “A Defeat for an Empire”, alluding to the quagmire faced by America in Iraq due to the limited and unassisted resistance put up by a few thousand – the modern day re-enacting of David vs. Goliath, or perhaps more contemporarily - a real enactment of the battle waged by Luke Skywalker against the power of the dark side of the Emperor in the epic cineodrama Star Wars, the lessons of which seem to be entirely lost to the madly cheering “United We Stand” and “Support Our Troops” crowd in America.
This isn't the defeat for Empire. Admitting defeat and pulling out without paying trillions of dollars for at least two centuries in compensation and restitution for the devastation caused, and without war crime tribunals for the monumental neocon criminals and their co-conspirators, helpers, and enablers for crimes against humanity, and presided over by the victims themselves like Eichmann's in Jerusalem, will hardly even settle the score.
Victims have long memories – just ask the Jews.
“It will have blood, they say: blood will have blood” as Shakespeare would say.
The taste of defeat is yet to come - with each new Hitler arising from the ashes of barbarism and despotism far worse than the preceding one.
For the unheard cries of the innocent men, women, and children, buried under the rubble of their own homes demolished by American bulldozers flying the star of David, and by American bombs dropped from American planes flying the Stars and Stripes - are made no less shrill than those of the victims of the Nazi gas chambers!
Their blood was just as red when it was spilled, the child's brain just as soft when it lay beside the unmoving body, the parent's humiliation just as severe at being tied up and strip searched in their own homes in front of their children by invading armies, the desperation of the people just as severe at their places of worship bombed and desecrated, as were the Jews' just three score years before.
And neither are the haunting, debilitating, lamenting, cursing memories of the survivors made any less faint by virtue of them not being Jews.
And neither are the "never again" pledges so solemnly made by the horrified world made any less solemn when not applied to the Jews.
These are the burning whispers on the lips of the mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, as they cower from American bombs and missiles, daisy cutters and DU munitions, desperately trying to console their wailing and terrified children from the cataclysmic explosions over their heads in the thick of night when most American families peacefully sleep in their comfortable beds after telling bed time stories to their beautiful children – quite oblivious to the travails of their fellow brethren in the distant lands and their own complicit role in enabling this war machine.
These are the lingering thoughts of the prisoners blind folded and interned in animal cages for years with no rights or dignities as human beings, brutally tortured and beaten, sleep deprived and forced to perform acts unmentionable for their tormentors, not charged with any crime, not allowed legal representation nor self defense in any court of law.
What do you think – they will accept a “oops mea culpa”? Would you?
The grand parents getting finger printed and retinas scanned before they can enter their own homes on their own lands wonder if they have been miraculously transported in time to an earlier decade.
The dogs eaten and rotting corpses in the streets – yearn for burial as the soul they encased took their final breaths and departed to heaven pleading for Justice from a higher power as none was forthcoming from their own kind.
What unspeakable crimes must have these innocent civilians committed in their past Karma to incur such an ignoble end that they are even deprived of a burial? Even the animals are allowed a burial – nay a funeral in America – but not these 'lesser people'.
What makes the Americans tolerate this as they carry on with their mundane lives untouched by the devastating bombs not falling over their heads nor invading foreign hordes with tanks and machine guns dressed like the Star Wars Storm Troopers outside their homes? Is it the mind numbing propaganda from the Zionist media? Or their own innate 'civilized' barbarism – a legacy of the morally decaying Western civilization?
The 4, 6, 9, 10 and 13 year olds passionately long for the innocent pleasures of childhood as the American made bullets fired by Israeli Jewish snipers pierce through their delicate skulls and eyes while they sit at their desks in their schools, or play in the dilapidated streets surrounded by American made, American tax payer paid, Israeli tanks and bulldozers.
What makes the Americans once again tolerate this unspeakable systematic genocide of children who did not do anything to them?
Why do the Americans condone it by continually shipping more aid, support, and weapons to Israel? What is so “sacred” and “untouchable” about Israel in the American psyche that they even allow their President to call Ariel Sharon “A man of peace” when they can clearly see that only the opposite is true? Why are they accepting the reversal of black and white in every aspect of their intellect so freely? Why aren't they filling the streets and protesting? Is it only the mind numbing incessant propaganda from the Zionist media? Or once again, their own innate 'civilized' barbarism?
Or is it the all-knowing wink wink and nod nod that the family members of a Godfather use to turn away from the murderous reality of their powerful clansman so that they may continue to enjoy the bountiful harvest of extortion and murder without soiling their own dainty hands?
Or perhaps this merciless incessant dehumanization, humiliation, torture, and indiscriminate slaughter of the Muslims is made far less cataclysmic for these innocent victims because the Stars and Stripes and the star of David are worn by the perpetuators instead of the swastika – for these new flags would never fight anything but the “evil doers” as their Messianic leader repeatedly claims to “bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done”.
So we see justice being enacted in Iraq and Palestine?
This is the question most asked by the impotent world as it cowardly and silently watches the spectacle on their television sets, compulsorily invoking upon themselves the perpetual curse of posterity that Elie Wiesel so profoundly invoked to secure for the Jews the singular right to claim the horrendous holocaust for themselves alone:
“And I bear within me a nameless grief and disillusionment, a bottomless despair, it is because that night I saw good and thoughtful Jewish children, bearers of mute words and dreams, walking into darkness before being consumed by the flames. I see them now, and I still curse the killers, their accomplices, the indifferent spectators who knew and kept silent, and Creation itself, Creation and those who perverted and distorted it. I feel like screaming, howling like a madman so that that world, the world of the murderers, might know it will never be forgiven.” Memoirs 'All Rivers Run to the Sea' (78).
A fire is a fire, whether lighted in a soap making factory from human flesh, or rained from the heavens above by Daisy Cutters, assorted cocktails of napalm and white phosphorous, on innocent civilians just as hauntingly walking into darkness before being consumed by the flames – a naked reality of the American “Shock and Awe” over Iraq.
No, a retreat from Iraq is not a defeat for an empire, nor an end to war, nor a harbinger of peace - for the cries of the innocent victims remain unheard, their quest for justice remain unfulfilled.
“Only the dead have seen the end of war” as Plato is thought to have said to his pupil, and as any person caught in its gruesome nightmare will easily testify. But does it ever end for the living, the suffering wonder? When does it end?
When no one is left alive?
Or when the earth has been plundered dry?
Or when the Grand Chessboard is in stalemate?
Or when the Samson option is also inevitably employed by those so inhumanly sodomized for such sustained periods that they will desperately seek to finally end the war at all and terminal cost?
Samson is known to many, not just to the Jewish state as it can so solemnly testify to. The bodies of its own citizens and innocent young children littering many of its Jews only streets and towns speak volumes, as do the thousand and then some body bags draped in red white and blue coming home to the bereaved from the front lines of conquest while the Presidential daughters play on the beaches and enjoy Christmas carols with their parents.
Are we in a civilizational devolution even as we evolve in our 'civilized' barbarism with long range bombers, computer console killing, and scanty but expensive clothing in the name of progress? Were the Neanderthals indeed at the zenith of human civilization as we continue to devolve into Daarth Vaiders the older we grow as a species?
A Martian observing us could only conclude that this life form on Earth, among all the rich and beautiful diversity of its species, is the only one that would surely self-destruct due to the excessive greed of the few and the excessive hypocrisy of the many, amidst the abject misery of its vast majority. A species that was indeed so incredibly fortunate, to have been the only ones to call themselves “Homo Sapiens” in the entire galaxy! After this display of their suicidal character precipitated by a handful of greedy cancerous parasites among them, who continually ignored the repeated prescient warnings that “mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind”, other life forms judiciously avoided the “H” word and its DNA.
The American people tolerate their Fourth Reich at the hands of their Bushes at their own risk far graver to their civilization than what their founders handed to the American Red Indians, or the Spaniards handed to the Aztecs. Their muted acquiescence to the loss of their civil liberties, the enactment of draconian laws that is making a surveillance society of their wonderful free society, the loss of their Constitutionally guaranteed Bill of Rights starting from the First Amendment that made their nation the most coveted among the immigrants, is their final death knell at the hands of their old foe. Perhaps according to the Biblical notion of justice – what goes around comes around - may well describe their predicament at the hands of their previously hated and almost exterminated foe.
A revenge that might well go down in future history of the universe as the epic and ultimate suicidal chess game in the history of mankind.
The Americans are far more susceptible to destruction of modern living amenities than the rest of the Muslim and the pre-industrial developing world would be. The latter communities still largely live in rural settings in simple agrarian village lifestyles and can easily thrive in the natural world – and perhaps even be a lot happier in the bargain with the meddlesome, exploitative and marauding West off their backs. Can the West live without their industrialization and their SUVs?
If not for compassion for another, for their own self interest and preservation, the American public, as well as the public in the Western world laboring under the onslaught of incessant propaganda from their respective governments that are allied with the American “war on terrorism”, must start using their brains to discern the barely concealed truths from the oft repeated falsehoods.
The global public must see this “war on terrorism” for what it really is. It does not require a Ph.D. to do so, nor does it require an expert to explain it to them. It only takes a modicum of common sense. Even when the public is information deprived, they can at least ask why is it that when the Americans fought the British Empire in their war of independence, that the rallying cry of their patriot and hero Patrick Henry ““Give me liberty or give me death” was their freedom call from an imperial tyranny, and yet the same slogan raised by those courageous enough to resist the American political, economic, and military hegemony, are labeled wanton terrorists and fundamentalists?
They must challenge those who blithely obscure the reality of greed and plunder by the dominant Western powers under the deft stewardship of the United States of America, which indirectly or directly ends up controlling the resource rich regions of Asia and South-Central America through various machinations of economic and political hegemony exercised through puppet regimes and client states. But always at the end of the double barrel shotgun of the mighty American war machinery.
When their leaders shamelessly talk of “war on terrorism” and threaten imminent danger from foreign jihadis, the people must try and remember the warnings of the famous American war hero of World War II:
“Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear - kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor - with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it.” (General Douglas Macarthur)
Before they sign up to sell their souls to the mantra of self-defense against terrorism, they might recall Adolph Hitler's own words on how easy it is to instill a false sense of patriotism in the masses who refuse to think for themselves:
“How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think.”
“The great masses of people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one. Especially if it is repeated over and over.”
“Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death.”
Instead of rallying to the call of false patriotism, the public must stand up to reclaim the truth. When their leaders talk of invading Iran – the public must stand up to exercise their Constitutional Rights to express their dissent. They must stop waving the “United We Stand” and “We Support our Troops” flags. Instead, they must ubiquitously put up new bumper stickers like:
'United We Stand Against War',
'We Don't Support Our Troops who kill innocent civilians in our Name',
'Fighting Imperial Wars of Conquest on other's soils isn't self-defense'.
Clearly the majority among the 30% of American electorate who reelected the war-mongering Christian zealot as their President for a second time are themselves war mongers in the name of Christ, or in the name of American Hegemony, or in the delusion of self-defense. It is not necessary to try and change their minds - ignorance or arrogance has already seeped into their blackened souls, and they only hear the Emperor's voice in the Faustian bargain they have made with him.
But equally, the much greater majority among the 70% of the electorate who rejected George Bush are not war mongers. They are the dominant majority in this nation, and are also not bereft of some private transportation. Putting up these bumper stickers ubiquitously is at least standing up for what they believe in – in the weakest way. If millions of them together fail to rise up even to this weakest level of active participation to speak up against the slaughter of innocent civilians, then they are just as guilty of war-mongering through their silent acquiescence, and equally deserving of the curse of posterity leveled by Holocaust survivor Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel:
“and I still curse the killers, their accomplices, the indifferent spectators who knew and kept silent.”
The soldiers – before they become storm troopers in the service of their Emperor, draftees of economic desperation and/or forced conscription, must consider putting their conscience ahead of their economic needs remembering the lessons learned at Nuremberg of disobeying illegal orders for immoral persecution of war, especially on defenseless civilians.
They might recall Muhammad Ali who refused to take that momentous step forward with his famous quip: “I ain't got no quarrel with the Vietcong... no Vietcong ever called me nigger” and saved his soul from eternal damnation. While initially reviled by many and hounded by the war-mongering government, he was later distinguished as the most honored sportsman of the twentieth century. 'Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight' of his boxing career was not in the ring, but in the Draft office, not with the “floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee” fleet footed shuffle, but by standing flat footed when called to step forward.
“I was following orders” to execute war crimes is not a defense against prosecution for war crimes. Nor is it a useful shield against the onslaught of the conscience upon return, that often leads to suicides when lucky, and a lifetime of troubled conscience standing in line at the VA for the ever diminishing benefits for mental health forever mumbling Lady MacBeth's famous line:
“All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand”.
Perhaps the words of Helen Keller will be more inspiring than Shakespeare's pessimism:
“Strike against war, for without you no battles can be fought! Strike against manufacturing shrapnel and gas bombs and all other tools of murder! Strike against preparedness that means death and misery to millions of human beings! Be not dumb, obedient slaves in an army of destruction! Be heroes in an army of construction.”
Or the dynamic words of America's favorite President Abraham Lincoln from his inaugural address may galvanize the people more:
“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.”
Does the world's Jewry not see the highjacking of their “Jewishness” and their Holy Judaic religion by the amoral “shylocks” among them stripping all of them of their own humanity? Do they not perceive how their own young men and women are being turned into heartless assassins killing small children in cold blood in the Israeli occupied Palestinian territories, stripping them of their rights to be called human beings?
In their own minds do they equate Zionism with Judaism? Do they feel that being a Jew necessarily implies acquiescing to all the Barbarism Israel and their Zionist brethren do in their Jewish name – the 'Righteous Victims'?
Perhaps they might heed the words of their own Jewish moralists:
“Although the Holocaust inflicted horrible injustice upon us, it did not grant us certificate of everlasting righteousness. The murderers where amoral; the victims were not made moral. To be moral you must behave ethically. The test of that is daily and constant.”
Or perhaps reading the letters of the indomitable American girl, Rachel Corrie, the 23 year old Jew of conscience, who in the defense of her Jewish faith stood up to the Israeli bulldozer on March 16, 2003, may yet re-awaken their own Jewish faith as succinctly espoused in their Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule “Do unto others...” - not the hatred laden literature synthesized by their prolific Rabbis for two millennia against the Gentiles.
I do not see any memorials going up for Rachel Corrie, nor do I see the majority of Jews of the Diaspora remembering or loudly condemning her murder at the hands of the IDF. At one of her monthly memorial services in 2003, I saw peoples of many religions, including Japanese, Buddhists, Christians, and atheists. My kids were the only young folks present – elementary to high school. The small church, which could easily accommodate over 200, had at most 25-30 people in attendance, including perhaps FBI informants keeping tabs on who dared to show up. Majority of the people present were the usual suspects – the Activists, many of them Jews of conscience. Where were all the other Jews that live in America?
The following excerpt from Rachel Corrie's own emailed letters to her mother Cindy Corrie, publicly distributed at the memorial service, sums it all up:
“I have been in Palestine for two weeks and one hour now, and I still have very few words to describe what I see. It is most difficult for me to think about what's going on here...
I don't know if many of the children here have ever existed without tank-shell holes in their walls and the towers of an occupying army surveying them constantly from the near horizons. I think, although I'm not entirely sure, that even the smallest of these children understand that life is not like this everywhere. An eight-year-old was shot and killed by an Israeli tank two days before I got here, and many of the children murmur his name to me "Ali" - or point at the posters of him on the walls...
I think about the fact that no amount of reading, attendance at conferences, documentary viewing and word of mouth could have prepared me for the reality of the situation here... once you have experienced the reality of a world that isn't surrounded by murderous towers, tanks, armed settlements, and now a giant metal wall. I wonder if you can forgive the world for all the years of your childhood spent existing - just existing - backed by the worlds only superpower - in its attempt to erase you from your home...
Currently the Israeli army is building a fourteen-meter-high wall between Rafah in Palestine and the border, carving a no-mans land from the houses along the border. Six hundred and two homes have been completely bulldozed... the wells destroyed last week provided half of Rafah's water supply... many of the communities have requested internationals to be present at night to attempt to shield houses from further demolition...
If any of us had our lives and welfare completely strangled, lived with children in a shrinking place where we knew, because of previous experience, that soldiers and tanks and bulldozers could come for us at any moment and destroy all the greenhouses that we had been cultivating for however long, and did this while some of us were beaten and held captive with 149 other people for several hours - do you think we might try to use somewhat violent means to protect whatever fragment means remained?...
When I come back from Palestine, I probably will have nightmares and constantly feel guilty for not being here... Coming here is one of the better things I've ever done. So when I sound crazy, or if the Israeli military should break with their racist tendency not to injure white people, please pin the reason squarely on the fact that I am in the midst of a genocide which I am also indirectly supporting, and for which my government is largely responsible.”
Another letter included in Rachel's emails to her mother is from a reserve first sergeant in the IDF, named Danny, who writes the following:
“The amount of AWOLS and refusals to serve are unprecedented in our history... refusal to carry out orders that involve firing on targets where civilians may be harmed... many career soldiers - among them pilots and intelligence personnel have chosen jail and unemployment over what they could only describe as murder... I am supposed to report to the Military Justice department - it is my job to hunt down runaway soldiers and bring them in. I have not reported for 18 months... I believe that Israel is under the leadership of some very bad people right now. I believe that settlers and local police are in collusion with each other and that the border police are acting disgracefully... Please document as much as you can...”
To not lament as loudly on Rachel's premeditated murder at the hands of the IDF – a detailed description and analysis of media coverage of which I have written about elsewhere, as they do the deaths of the innocent victims of Palestinian attacks, must really give pause to the world Jewry to ponder their hypocrisy. Their silence, and in some cases actual reviling of her principled stance on behalf of the beleaguered Palestinians, as a suicidal nut case rather than a Patrick Henry: “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death”, is a solemn testimony to the veracity of Noam Chomsky's assertions that in the American Zionist political landscape, there are two types of victims – “worthy”, and “unworthy”. The former when our enemies create the victims, the latter when we ourselves, or our closest allies, create the victims. It is forbidden to lament the loss of the latter. Do the Jews really want to accept the Zionist morality? If so, then the distinction between Zionists and Jews has just been eliminated.
Do the world's Christians not see the highjacking of their “Jesus” - a voice of love, mercy, and peace – by the Armageddon seeking, Rapture freaking, Evangelical fundamentalist fanatics among them, also stripping them of their humanity? And who goads them on in their delusions of hastening the arrival of Christ by supporting murder and mayhem of defenseless populations?
All Israeli statesmen almost always include a visit to the famous Bible Belt states as an essential stop when visiting Washington to keep the faith of the Evangelical Christians moving forward towards Armageddon – seeking their political and financial support for the continued occupation and further annexation of Arab lands for Eretz Israel, in fulfillment of Divine Biblical Prophesy. While in private they laugh at the ridiculous notions of the Evangelical fundamentalists as they certainly don't believe in any of this Christ stuff (or else they'd all be Christians), they use the Evangelical support for their Zionist expansion of the Jewish State much like Theodor Herzl used the anti-Semitism in Europe to found the Jewish state: “Herzl recognized that anti-Semitism would be harnessed to his own Zionist-purposes.” Benny Morris in 'Righteous Victims'
Furthermore, who is making a mockery out of their Holy Christian religion exposing their hypocrisy for all to see when Ariel Sharon, the murderer of thousands and a indicted war criminal, is called by the world's most prominent and powerful Christian President a “man of peace” and his “mentor”? The sheer absurdity of this gratuitous benefaction on Ariel Sharon may be lost to the American Christians, it is not lost to anyone else in the world.
Perhaps Christians, of all stripes, by searching their own conscience for the acts their brethren commit in their name, and using the age old Biblical Golden rule “do unto others as you have others do unto you” to guide them, may also yet awaken their true Christian faith of mercy and kindness from the slumbering clutches of the Zionist induced deep hypnosis.
Do the Muslim polity of the world not see that “waiting for Allah” to resolve their destiny by hastening the arrival of their long awaited “Messiah” or “Mahadi” is not the panacea for their complete subjugation and sustained humiliation? That they indeed have to use their innate rights to self defense the good Lord gave them? That they have to unite and fight back against the barbaric onslaught of the “civilized barbarians” from all sides, or remain enslaved for a millennia in miserable economic, political, and military subjugation at the hands of the new Zionist masters under the Star of David?
If the Muslims are waiting for their dictatorial governments to act – perhaps it may come as a surprise to only the most naïve among them that their governments only labor to control them under the emerging Star of David.
Look at Pakistan – the only country capable of providing a defensive nuclear umbrella to the beleaguered Muslims today. The only country that can prevent a replay of Iraq in Iran by extending to it a NATO like mutual defense treaty. Yet her ruler is a military General whose family members are all living in the United States, who serendipitously came to power a couple of years before the launch of the world conquest, who dutifully dethroned Dr. A.Q. Khan, the most revered man in Pakistan and had him put under house arrest, and who even more dutifully pays homage to the Emperor every year at the White House. And her Prime Minister works firmly for the forces of Globalization, seeking to privatize and acquire the public commons of all nations for the benefit of Western corporate interests in the name of efficiency. And it's hopeless people – all “waiting for Allah” - rather than learning from the humble yet self reliant peasants of Cochabamba in Bolivia. That may be a very long wait indeed.
Unless the unholy children of Abraham, the Holy Patriarch who started it all, join forces together along with the other worldwide victims of the “New American Century” to defeat their common enemy - the amoral haters of mankind who deliberately sew the seeds of hatred, mistrust and divisiveness among the peaceable peoples with fraudulent intellectual treatise prognosticating an inevitable “Clash of Civilizations”, who deceptively scare peaceful people into waging wars of conquest against other nations in the name of self-defense, and who only see mankind as a commodity to trade on their stock exchanges and on their geopolitical Grand Chessboards - the fate of the world indeed awaits a dark and dismal future.
Indeed far darker than what Bernard Lewis concludes in the most misleading, distorted, and propagandistic scholarship yet to stem from his pen in the service of the Zionist Neocon agenda and quite purposely so offensively labeled with the Psyops title 'The Crisis of Islam – Holy War and Unholy Terror'. He writes:
“If the fundamentalist are correct in their calculations and succeed in their war, then a dark future awaits the world, especially the part of it that embraces Islam.”
A more honest scholarship worthy of someone wearing Plato's mantle of erudite scholarship bringing enlightenment to the masses might have been 'The Crisis of Judaism – Holy War and Unholy Terror' to correctly reflect the reality in Palestine at the hands of the Zionist fundamentalists who proclaim to the inheritance of Moses and distort Judaism to their own twisted purpose of Eretz Israel, who wage wars worldwide through lies and deception, and whose hypocrisy knows no bounds when they lament their own holocaust while they endeavor to bring destruction to other innocent civilians through every means that were used against them throughout the ages.
Or perhaps the equally perceptive 'The Crisis of Christianity – Holy War and Unholy Terror' to truthfully reflect the American President's over zealous fundamentalist Christian motivations for his crusading Messianic war on Islam and Muslims disguised as “war on terrorism”. The fundamentalist Evangelical Christian flag waving public who re-elected him and who loudly proclaim “United We Stand” and “We Support our Troops” even as these troops continue to commit unspeakable horrors on innocent civilians, provide sufficient proof and empirical evidence to write such a treatise.
Or finally perhaps even 'The Crisis of Unbridled Greed and Global Hegemony in American Democracy – Holy War and Unholy Terror'. The story of the Neocons and their PNAC and NSC strategies of imperial mobilization and conquest through deception, preemptive war, and terror, to extend America's dominance to the four corners of the world. Mr. Bernard Lewis will certainly find more cogent material to explain the social, cultural, and religious phenomenon of Islamic fundamentalist seen from the lens of reaction to America's imperialism, than a problem with Islam or Muslims.
I am eagerly awaiting to read such theses from the scholars of the Ivy League, as I am sure are the ~70% of American electorate who resoundingly rejected the Zionist Neocon agenda in the 2004 elections, and as are the people in the rest of the world. It would also make compelling evidence at the War Crimes Tribunals for determining several lifetimes of compensation to be paid by the American nation and its peoples, to the innocent victims of the darkest chapters in America's short and bloody history.
Those associating themselves with the Judeo-Christian traditions in the Western Civilization, regardless of their belief or unbelief systems, must see the terrible danger their monumentally criminal brethren have put their entire civilization in.
The Islam and Muslim bashers in the West call for “updating” Islam's scriptures with modern times, or even waging an all out war against Islam, as Shawn Steele, the former Chairman of California's State Republican Party very courageously suggested at a pro-war rally at the University of Southern California in 2003: “The Islamic community has a cancer growing inside of it [...] The disease of Islam must be rectified - it's kill or be killed” (source: radio broadcasts Flashpoints & DemocracyNow on Pacifica). They might do well to look into their own sources of criminally insane dogmas, and perhaps feel equally courageous to make similar calls for “updating” their own religions and fighting the cancers among their own kind.
Indeed, they must make incredible haste to eliminate from their midst, this cancer of Zionism, and the growing cancer of Christian Evangelism that only endeavors to bring destruction to mankind. Either they collectively put an end to these deranged left overs of antiquity, parasites thriving amidst their Western modernity of rational thought and democratic values, or the fanatics espousing their ideals will put an end to mankind.
The Western civilization must finally wake up and realize the revenge that the Judeofascist Zionist Jews are wrecking upon them for two Millennia of Christian persecution. “To wage wars by way of deception” is their creed – and wars may come in many packages. While the Palestinians are bearing the brunt of “Warsaw Ghetto” tactics continually being revisited upon them in the most inhuman and brutal occupation of a civilian population in modern times, the silence of the “civilized West”, who gifted the Zionist Jews another's land to solve their own Jewish problem, is the pound of flesh. The worst kind of war to wage on one's opponent is to take away their humanity – leaving a gaping abyss where once beat a human heart. Killing their souls softly with each new exploding bullet lodged into a Palestinian child's tender head by an Israeli sniper – making all their tall claims of a “civilized people” with “democratic ideals” of “equality” and “human rights” hypocrite shams.
Perhaps now that Europe is evolving as a cooperative Union, with a renewed sense for human rights and civility at least amongst themselves after centuries of barbaric lust for each other's territories, they can also eliminate the raison d'être for the immutable truth that drove Herzl to invent the Jewish State “In Basle I founded the Jewish state . . . Maybe in five years, certainly in fifty, everyone will realize it.” Or consider granting them Switzerland to atone for their past transgressions against them. Palestine Not.
The West must indeed realize that the only solution that will bring long term peace to them, is elimination of Israel as an apartheid state – and the annihilation of Zionism. It should be clear to them that Zionism as an experiment was illegitimate at birth to start with, and has failed miserably in the end.
No more than 4 million Jews live in Israel, most of them in daily mortal danger from the revenge executed upon them by the victims they have created through half a century of cataclysmic oppression. The vast majority of the world Jewry still lives generally peacefully in Diaspora, quite well integrated, materially thriving, and mentally at peace, in the respective cultures and nations they have called home.
Whereas the resistance put up by the courageous victims of the Zionists, refusing to become vanquished despite a century of hardships, has turned the Israeli State into a fascist hypocrite entity with its own Jewish youth growing up with their hearts filled with hatred for their neighbors, and their souls devoid of any humanity that allows them to remorselessly shoot small children in the head and eyes for target practice. They feel no pangs of guilt as they humiliate and subjugate the innocent civilians on a daily basis.
When asked by an ISM (International Solidarity Movement) volunteer who was in Palestine in 2002/2003 bearing witness to the Israeli brutality in the West Bank and Gaza, if he felt no fear of God, the young Israeli soldier manning the checkpoint, and barely in his early 20s, replied: “this is my god – where was he when 6 million of us were being killed” pointing to his UZI and touching it to his lips (Source: a talk sponsored by a conscionable Jewish activist Barbara Lubin of Middle East Children's Alliance (MECA) in Berkeley California, where many of these volunteers shared their eye witness accounts of the daily dehumanizing oppression of the civilians by Israeli military occupation forces).
Would you like one of your sons or daughters to marry one of these Israeli monsters?
Even as they are the 'mini Europe in the heart of the barbaric middle East' as Israelis often claim for themselves, they have become the “Civilized Barbarians” in Calvin Klein clothing.
Had Theodor Herzl foreseen this obvious outcome for his illegitimate brainchild, he would perhaps have killed himself, for he genuinely seemed to have cared for the plight of the Jewish people – if not for any other's. He seemed to have been carried away by how the Pilgrims settled America with a 'cake-walk' over a primitive, peaceful, and unarmed population.
A single state Palestine-Israel for all its native peoples, with full compensation and right of return for the forcibly displaced Palestinian population, with full extraction of all the eagerly transplanted non native Jewish imports from New York, Russia, and Eastern Europe, and adopting a constitutional charter similar to the American Constitution and Bill of Rights for their populace with an adult franchise of one person one vote, is the only peaceful and logical destiny for Palestine in the West's own control.
A destiny forcibly implemented by Islam's warriors and freedom fighters (“terrorists” for those on the receiving end) may not be so charitable to the Jews for the misdeeds of the Zionists – a people to whom the Muslims did not do anything but were always protecting them through the centuries, and who in turn were worse to them when they acquired power than any Hitler or Stalin. The Muslims are as acutely aware of their 1400 years of history and their role in it, as the Jews are of their two millennia in Diaspora.
Almost every child among the one billion Muslim population spread throughout the world grows up learning about the intimate details of their Prophet of Islam, and how he defended Medina against the treachery of the Jews at Khayber – administering to them justice of their own choosing from their own scriptures for their treasonous behavior as the fifth column in a prior battle after they had signed a peace treaty. While it was the Noble Prophet of the Muslims, one who is presumed to be fair and above board by the Muslims, who handed the verdict to the guilty culprits, any justice administered by the vengeful Muslims to avenge their dead will be anything but fair.
One can even see the simmer boiling just beneath the surface in the entire powerless Muslim populations across the world against the Jews as a people, for the crimes of Zionism by many among them, in much the same way as the simmering hatred festered in the hearts and minds of the powerless Jews against the Christian Gentiles as a people, for two thousand years of anti-Semitism – and may yet still be simmering.
The following sentiment by an American President is now pervasive among most Muslims, who tend to blame all their problems on the Jews:
“The Jews, I find are very, very selfish. They care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs or Greeks get murdered or mistreated as D[isplaced] P[ersons] as long as the Jews get special treatment. Yet when they have power, physical, financial or political neither Hitler nor Stalin has anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment to the under dog.” Diary, Harry S. Truman July 21, 1947.
Thus, the Zionists, with their experiment in Palestine are creating hatred in the hearts of many – hatred once bred knows no rational limits nor bounds – to actually bring to a self-fulfilling realization their 'perpetual war' making thesis of 'Clash of Civilizations. This hatred has nothing to do with anti-Semitism either.
The Prophet of Islam himself was a Semite, as is more than 10% of the Muslim population of the world. The Arabs are just as Semitic as the Jews, sharing the same ancestry and often the same bloodlines and culture, especially with the indigenous Jews from the Middle East – all the way to Abraham the Patriarch. Cousins as they are, the Jews lived in relative comfort in the Muslim dominions for centuries while the Christians hunted them down. The stories of the Jews and the Biblical Prophets are told in the Quranic scriptures as much as in the Biblical scriptures – departing in details at many points, but sharing many aspects. Muslims in the Quran are continually called upon to especially learn the history of the Jews so that they may not repeat their mistakes.
Indeed, there is a strong indescribable bond that binds the Jews and the Muslims, even as it divides them in the prescription of their faiths from the same God. The Muslim faith accepts theirs, as it does Christianity, as antecedent message from the same one God that got corrupted through the passage of time and was superseded by Islam. Theirs rejects Islam outright as the new kid on the block. Indeed, Islam's message to the Jews and Christians is not one of Triumphalism – they don't have to become Muslims, they are the special “People of the Book” – to be held accountable to the standards brought by their own Prophets. This is the unequivocal position of Islam, as well as the understanding of even its pathetic followers today.
No, this hatred is new, and derives solely from the actions of the Zionist Jews in Palestine, the largest open grand larceny in modern times – the theft of Palestine, and the theft of the lives of generations of Palestinian Arabs.
The Zionist instigation and planning of the Neocons war of conquest of Muslim peoples and Muslim lands, the systematic and barbaric destruction of an innocent and defenseless civilian people under the very eyes of the “Civilized” Judeo-Christian Western world, is what fuels the hatred of the Jews.
The hatred of the West derives entirely from their subjugation at the hands of the West, militarily, economically, and politically. In an equitable non-hegemonic world, without exploitation, without interference in other nations, and without puppet regimes, the Muslims would have no more reason to hate the 'imperial' West, than the West have to hate them.
This simple and common sense outlook is deliberately and deceptively overlooked by the Neocon and Zionist scholars, hegemonists, and other assorted social Darwinians, who purposely spin false doctrines of “Clash of Civilizations” to create self fulfilling prophesies. Well they might well succeed – they are planting and nurturing all the right ingredients globally all across the 'arc of crises'!
Just as the idiotic Muslims fell in their trap during CIA's Intervention in Afghanistan, the hatred being sown may yet make them amenable to fall in this new trap of 'Clash of Civilization'!
While the majority of Westerners may not understand this empathy among the presently powerless Muslims along religious lines, since most of the West's own alliances in the modern world are along economic, military, or cultural lines, they would be wise to not misunderstand the depth of this empathy either. For in a real uncontrolled 'Clash of Civilization' - which despite all the connivance and cunning of its cultivators and gardeners at adeptly managing it, may indeed become uncontrollable and engulf the entire world - all humanity stands to lose!
Power is no one's friend – it's fickle, ephemeral, changes hands unpredictably. It continually tests humanity to separate the barbarians from the civilized, continually giving them new chances to become civilized, and wrecking as much havoc upon those who use it absolutely, as on their victims!
The sooner this transformation of an apartheid Israel to a democratic Palestine-Israel or Israel-Palestine is brought about by the silently spectating world, whether by the West with its newly found penchant for Democratic values, Human Rights, Equality, and Freedom for all peoples, or by an eventual fearsome war with the victims of the Zionists and the Neocons machinations, the sooner the world, or what will remain of it, will sleep peacefully at night.
With Zionism made defunct, there will be one less motivator in the equation that fuels the empire. We will be left only with the cold bloodied imperialists to deal with as all the other ideologies would have been neutralized by equitably resolving Israel-Palestine as a single non-apartheid state for all its indigenous peoples. Who knows – that may take the wind out of the sails of the empire too – for it was indeed also the “Zion that will light up all the world”!
When justice comes to pass, as it surely will – and the Zionist Neocons and their enablers and supporters all see themselves facing their victims in War Crimes Tribunals in Baghdad, Kabul, Jerusalem, and elsewhere, how does one administer justice to monumental criminals for their monumental crimes?
What mortal punishment can ever atone for what they have done to the tabula rasa of civilians across the globe? Imprisoning them for 10,000 lifetimes in cages in Guantanamo Bay, continually torturing them stripped naked with dogs biting at their genitals to see who defecates first, tying them up in contorted positions without food and water, or putting them to death 100,000 times repeatedly, is obviously quite impractical if one is to levy on them the Biblical “Thou shalt give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot” justice from their own books.
There is indeed no adequate punishment possible for monumental crimes – the crimes of conquerors. That only leads one to think that such monumental crimes, even the possibility of such monumental crimes occurring, must be prevented at all cost. That the traditional mantra of War Crimes Tribunal is a red herring, perhaps invented by the same monumental criminals for getting off easy if they are defeated or caught, because no earthly punishment can match their crimes.
Indeed, one can see the hypocrisy with which the Tribunals in Nuremberg and Tokyo were conducted. Just the legal definition of a War Crime was set by the victors to reflect all the “bad things they did that we didn't do” and “all the bad things we did are not war crimes for either side”. Thus the Allied carpet bombing of civilian population centers in Dresden and Tokyo, as well as the dropping of two Atomic bombs on the civilian industrial cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, were not classified as war crimes, and neither were the city bombings by the Nazi's all over Europe. President Truman obviously was not tried for war crimes for ordering the deaths of millions of Japanese civilians. But many were hung for breaking treaties and invading Eastern Europe, as well as for the Holocaust, all were declared as war crimes – neither of which the Allies themselves had done.
The Geneva Conventions that have since evolved for the “civilized” conduct of war and protection of Human Rights, does not explicitly state that dropping a Nuclear bomb is a war crime, possessing a weapon of mass destruction like a Nuclear bomb is a war crime, pursuing or adopting an aggressive policy of preemptive nuclear strikes on non-nuclear nations who cannot protect themselves for want of a similar deterrent, is a war crime, or that war itself, is a war crime.
Thus while My Lai massacre in Vietnam is classified as a war crime, the sustained million ton bombing for a decade of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia with napalm and assorted cocktails of horrible deaths is not called a war crime. It's perpetuators in the name of ideology, American Presidents JFK, LBJ, and Nixon, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara (LBJ), and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger (Nixon), were never charged with the deaths of dispensable innocent civilians caught in a proxy war between super powers on their soil. What led to Richard Nixon's downfall? Not the million deaths he caused in Vietnam through a deceitful escalation of the war, but that he lied about his role in the bugging of his political opponent's headquarters!
Similarly, the team of President Carter and Zbigniew Brzezinski, Ronald Reagan and George Bush, all scot-free from any stains of war crimes in 1979-1988 in Afghanistan on their fine white civilized garments. Nor on the team of President Clinton and Madeleine Albright for the civilian deaths in Iraq in the 1990s under their dutifully maintained economic sanctions.
Wars fought by the West along ideological lines are not war crimes!
There is indeed no major deterrence for them, as victors in those Tribunals of WW II, for once again bombing densely populated cities in Iraq in this 2000's decade, destroying Faluja to rubble, or dropping a million tons of Depleted Uranium bombs each on both Iraq and Afghanistan that will continue to kill civilians mercilessly for generations long after the actual wars of plunder on the 'Grand Chessboard' are over.
And if eventually caught through sheer bad luck for crimes that were actually classified as war crimes, and subsequently endorsed in the Geneva Conventions and Human Rights Conventions – such as torture - they hope to play the same legal games that Augusto Pinochet and Ariel Sharon have been playing to prevent prosecution, and Henry Kissinger has been playing to not even be charged with any war crime.
Which is why the new Attorney General of the United States, Mr. Alberto Gonzalez has argued in his written memos to the White House that these Geneva Conventions on Human Rights for civilized and humane treatment of prisoners are now antiquated, and the United States should not feel compelled to abide by these treaties as it only gets in the way of fighting the “war on terrorism”.
Thus even if these monumental war criminals are eventually busted, they will at best serve out their remaining few years of life sentences in the relative comfort of “suitable” jails as the worst outcome – not in Guantanamo Bay, not stripped naked, not with rods up their assess, not as enemy combatants against humanity who should be brutally tortured day and night to extract all the secrets from the depths of their bowels, following their own Biblical “eye for an eye” notion of justice – neither to exceed nor reduce in punishment.
Indeed, Christians of all stripes will rush to show what it means to bring Jesus to these criminals with “forgive thine enemy” and “turn the other cheek”, but who remain impotent when George Bush brings his own Messianic brand of Christianity to bear: “Whether we bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done” with million tonnage of bombs, and brutality that knows no bounds.
The present understanding of “war crimes”, and any ex post facto construction of “war crimes Tribunals” is indeed anemic to say the least. It sets no precedence for prosecution of monumental Criminals (with a capital C) from among the victors of WW II. It presents no deterrence against committing crimes against humanity. Just witness Ariel Sharon – although indicted for war crimes against the Palestinian people in Lebanon for the massacres in Sabra and Shatila camps, and the Israeli Knesset itself held him accountable – yet he now roams as the famous “man of peace” and is committing new monumental crimes against humanity on a daily basis in occupied Palestine. His attack on the city of Jenin in 2003 was only mildly rebuked as he continues to boast: “Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.”
The “war on terrorism” and all its sponsors in the American Govt. – from the President down to the last advisor in his cabinet – all directly responsible for every single civilian and innocent death – and yet remain undeterred by any fear of accountability as they continue to wantonly wage even more horrible death and military occupation on civilian populations.
The people in the American nation, without fear of accountability or remorse, reelected the same war criminals for a second term who now talk of attacking Iran.
There is so little deterrence indeed, that the Neocons can blithely and publicly disclose their PNAC plans, Brzezinski can blithely accept responsibility for the destruction of Afghanistan as “some agitated Moslems”, and subsequently even print his new imperial quest in the book “The Grand Chessboard”, the White House can publicly disclose on its web site the National Security Council strategy of preemptive nuclear strikes on non-nuclear nations in contradiction to its earlier pledges to protect non-nuclear nations from nuclear strikes by anyone including the United States if they signed the NPT and did not seek this nuclear deterrence of their own!
No fear whatsoever.
Not having succeeded in deterring and preventing any barbaric Criminals from executing their monumental Crimes upon humanity once again, a new model for Monumental War Crimes Tribunals must be developed for the benefit of preventing new victims.
It must pack the power punch necessary for real deterrence of monumental war crimes by the next set of potential imperial conquerors in the future, ensure as fair a sense of restitution and compensation to the victims as humanly possible, and implement enormous national and international level retribution and punitive damages on the aggressor nation.
It must make the price for war crimes so high indeed, that nations and their peoples will be forced to rein in their own governments or become bankrupt into slavery for generations in posterity in paying compensations and punitive damages!
Entire nations must be held liable and called to account for creating and supporting these war criminals from among them. All those with “United We Stand” and “We support our troops” stickers on their cars are as much war criminals as the leaders they support.
Excuses like: 'I did not know', 'I was misled for waging a war in self-defense on another's soil because I am stupid and cannot think properly', or 'I reelected Mein Fuehrer President a second time because god talks to him' must not absolve the self proclaimed “naive” and “misled” war-mongering people of their own complicity in the monumental crimes, nor from paying compensation and punitive damages to their victims for generations.
They must pay the due ransom in order to reclaim their innocence only generations later. Such ransom, in trillions of dollars and no less (in 1950's dollars when it actually had some value), to be paid for generations by the culprit nations directly to the victims and their successor generations – for at least 200 years or however long it takes for all lingering effects of the injustices to physically, mentally, socially, and psychologically disappear. If we go by the example of the Jews, perhaps add another zero to that number as the former victims still continue to suffer from the 'victim complex' and continue to lash out to create new victims of their own in Palestine and in the world by being the key 'ubermensch' masterminds behind “imperial mobilization” and “all the evil that follows” its barbaric implementation.
The cleanup, reconstruction, and rehabilitation costs must all be borne by the culprit nations – with the restitution taking precedence over any domestic spendings.
Monumental crimes require monumental punishments. Only then can it deter.
If one is deemed smart enough to be entrusted a weapon to make war, one must also be deemed smart enough to know when not to do it - when the cost for doing so is made monumental!
Such principles as outlined above compel people to hold their leaders accountable – rather than adopt a laissez faire attitude that it does not concern them, or that they do not have control over their government, or there is no choice, or that they will be reviled and interned if they protest too loudly.
The consequence to not protesting efficaciously and allowing the injustices to prevail in their names now incurs a monumental penalty. Antiwar protests are not a career or a fun outing over the weekend with the family. It is a serious life and death struggle – as much a struggle for the people of the aggressor nation as for the ones at the receiving end of the warfare in remote nations!
People must feel compelled to acquire control over their governments and forever remain vigilant to what their government does in their names, in turn holding politicians, institutions, media, and press accountable for presenting a true and accurate picture of what transpires in the corridors of power. For not doing so also has a price associated with it. Living in a democracy is a privilege, as well as a responsibility. With responsibilities also come accountabilities.
It is the peoples job to ensure by any means necessary, by creating new institutions and new laws if necessary, and by abrogating old laws and old institutions when necessary, that the power entrusted to their government by them is only wielded in what the people deem to be in their nation's best interests, and in conformance with international laws for peaceful and equitable co-existence with other nations on the planet, even when these other nations be composed of weaker 'lower order life forms' or aliens from outer space.
Social and political Darwinism by parasitic leaders must extract a monumental penalty from their entire nation! A responsibility for which now ordinary people are held liable, draining essential wealth from their own social spendings and livelihoods to pay for generations in restitution costs.
Or else all pretenses to civilized existence be universally abandoned in favor of “Daarth Vaider Darwinism” – remembering that political pecking order continually evolves and is always supplanted by a new barbarian more vicious than the one it replaces.
Thus motivation towards equitable co-existence, of necessity for self-preservation, is a powerful impetus for heralding genuine non-fiction people powered Democracies (with a capital D) throughout the world, by setting the example first in the United States of America itself.
Such is the justice that shall be genuinely wrought by the innocent victims of this war on terrorism for a real non-fiction “Never Again”, for the benefit of all of mankind.
Thank you for reading.
Open Letter to George Bush, the First President of the United States of America in the 21st Century
As the most powerful person on Earth today, you might perhaps wonder how dare an ordinary serf in your country charge you, and your Administration, as monumental war criminals. I possess no power, no weapons, no authority, except the evidence of your own premeditated actions to wage wars on innocent civilians. You may have me killed, interned, tortured, at any time – you do at this time possess such powers over me. And I am indeed afraid of all of these unholy fates befalling me lest my unbounded impudence cross the threshold of your tolerance.
Yet I feel compelled by my conscience to recall for you a simple allegory. Your very own noble Christian saint, St. Augustine had already very aptly defined you as early as the 4th century AD:
“When the King asked him what he meant by infesting the sea, the pirate defiantly replied: 'the same as you do when you infest the whole world; but because I do it with a little ship I am called a robber, and because you do it with a great fleet, you are an emperor.' ”
I have merely only re-echoed that fact. But I also feel, in the very core of my heart, that your true inescapable destiny Mr. President, respectfully, is to finally wage a real war upon the real “axis of evil” - the NZE that has conquered Washington. I have defined these new villains (pronounced Nazi) in section ii of the detailed preamble to this open letter to you.
Like Daarth Vaider, who despite his overt hideous facade, and an equally grotesque war mongering soul forever held in blind obedience to his manipulative omniscient master, did find the ounce of rational goodness deep within his blackened abyss of a soul to turn the tables upon the forces of evil that had controlled him, consumed him, one child's murder at a time, you too can be saved from the bottomless depravity of your soul. It is just too bad for the rest of us among the 'lesser' humanity that you do not have a son like Luke Skywalker who can save you. It is now only you, as you walk in the path of your venerable Lord, who must struggle all alone to uncover the true meaning of Prophetic Jesus – your Lord – by peering into the abyss of your soul – yes even you possess one, I am sure of it!
When you shave next time, I humbly beg you to peer into those blank eyes in the mirror and wrench out that grotesque NZE that lies therein – the father whose commands you hear from the heavens is being dexterously controlled by the more earthly father in your own home – in the White House itself. If you really don't already know, ask him who really did 9-11!
