Indeed – Justice is in the Service of Empire, as it has always been.
Why the surprise tone?
Only in victor's justice courts, as at Nuremberg Military Tribunal, can there ever be any semblance of justice, and that too only because of all the show of bravado and morality that is necessary to explain away the tens of millions butchered by the good-guys by putting all the sins and crimes of war only upon the bad-guys!
It is instructive to periodically refer to this PR Closing Speech of Robert H Jackson at Nuremberg, Day 187, July 26, 1946:
The report on the Yoo case, as well as the report “No Court Can Hear Abuse and Wrongful Death Claims from Guantanamo”, further underscores the following analysis: The Only Truth About US Justice is that Justice is in the Service of Empire!
Unless this issue is appreciated in its full un-varnished dimension, that all organs of state – which includes Justice and the Courts in no less measure than the Legislative, Executive, and not to forget the newsmedia and the diabolical manufacturing of both consent and dissent – are all entirely in the service of “full spectrum dominance” towards world government regardless of their differing virtuous garbs, “history's actors” will continue to make new history while narrators, “all of you, will be left to just study what we do”, with absolutely zero impact on any future history.
That statement above is rooted in empiricism. So what's the point, might I ask, of this:
'Leopold will also be writing a thorough analysis of the voluminous report this weekend.'?
What will it achieve except a show of ineffectual brilliance and pedantic scholarship?
Please take a careful look at this NY Times magazine article before you waste further effort – it is mocking you, and all of us who endeavor in narrating/unraveling the past faits accomplis while new ones are blithely being constructed:
'The aide said that guys like me were ''in what we call the reality-based community,'' which he defined as people who ''believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.'' I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. ''That's not the way the world really works anymore,'' he continued. ''We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.'' ' --- Faith, Certainty and the Presidency of George W. Bush By RON SUSKIND, October 17, 2004. NYT.
Don't ask me what's the answer to putting hectoring hegemons, their aiders and abetters, and their financial masters on the gallows – all I know is that narrations ain't it. And I also know, and as the historical record of Nuremberg is testament, Hjalmar Schact, Hitler's financial bankster genius, went scot-free at Nuremberg.
