A Response by Project Humanbeingsfirst.org

In ref to: Comment by an annonymous poster 'Get Real' to a news story in Malaysia Sun, titled “Bush speaks on the possibility of another 9/11”, Sunday, April 13, 2008.

Nuremberg: The elephant in the newlywed's bed!*

Messrs. 'Get real' wrote, and quite accurately too:

You bunch of losers

The United States will continue to protect you when you get into situations over your head. The real fact is that these bastards attacked our buildings and killed our people. Now they must pay. You can call Mr. Bush a moron all that you want, but we as Americans will never sit back and take a slap in the face. The world is lucky we didn’t unleash a nuclear arsenal on several different countries, and what would the rest of the world be able to do about it. Nothing, except post bu**Sh*t blogs on newstories that are written by the liberal left media.

That’s so true what 'Get real' says. Hitler felt that way too - when the 'Poles' attacked Germany in 'Operation Canned Goods'.

In any case, 'might is right'.

The strong will always do whatever they will, the weak must always suffer what they must.

Someone wise, like 'Get real' must have invented that bit of truism - seems appropriate here.

Indeed, Brzezinski even topped that in constructing the soul of wit: “hegemony is as old as mankind”.

There is of course, only one minor point.

It’s called Nuremberg.

But that is only because, once again, as 'Get real' has astutely observed about power and its many incantations, it was also a case of 'victor’s justice'.

For what else could it have been when Justice Robert H. Jackson, the Chief Prosecutor for the United States, asserted:

If certain acts of violation of treaties are crimes, they are crimes whether the United States does them or whether Germany does them, and 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.”

And then he went on to define criminal conduct:

'An “aggressor,” Jackson proposed to the [Nuremberg] tribunal, is a state that is the first to commit such actions as “invasion of its armed forces, with or without a declaration of war, of the territory of another State.'

Then Justice Robert Jackson of the United States, the Chief Prosecuting Counsel at Nuremberg, made several interesting points ... if curious read up on it!

All these assertions of Justice Robert Jackson based on which the US and its allies hung the Nazi leadership, surely will only apply to the United States someday; but only when some other 'baboon' comes out on top and hands it the 'victor’s justice', of exactly the same measure, for surely we do not wish to exceed Justice Jackson’s prescription at Nuremberg (though if I had my wish, I’d use the Old Testament to administer it ...).

In the meantime - rejoice in the power of the dark side.

Messrs. 'Get real' is just as appropriately named, as his or her or its fellow brethren intoxicated with unchallenged power, who call themselves the 'Hectoring Hegemons'.

There is of course, only a minor twist to this story too.

In fact, just let me point it to you - see “Battle at Kruger” on youtube. An 8-minute video that has been viewed over 24 million times.
