Over the last thirteen years, the New York Times, though supporting the US occupation of Afghanistan, has headlined, nearly every year, usually with pathetic heartbreaking photos of tiny children in rags freezing without enough food to survive, reporting that hundreds have been dying every winter. [1] Every year, other publications report that children have been freezing and starving to death in the camps just outside Kabul, ever since the American invasion and overthrow of the Afghan government by US Army and Air Force in 2001. [2] 

Inside Kabul, and elsewhere, American, and allied troops from all forty nations of majority Caucasian populations, have lived well fed in comfortable quarters.  Within occupied Kabul there are the extremely opulent homes of the officials and friends of the corrupt government that includes infamous drug lords [3] who are protected by these well fed foreign armed forces.

For thirteen years these invading Americans have protected an openly admitted corrupt Quisling government imposed with phony elections under US led military occupation, and have protected as well, traitorous war lords from the fighters of the previous US overthrown Taliban government (which is actually still governing in at least half the territory of Afghanistan.)[3]  Americans have killed uncounted tens of thousands of Afghanis who fight their nation's occupation as Afghanis always have done. (Afghanis fought the British Empire for a century.) In the process America has also brought death to 20,000 Afghani unarmed civilians mostly women and children just in the five years the UN reported between 2007-2011. As a side show we Americans have let these thousand, or thousands, of children starve and freeze to death (while dispatching not a few others with drone missile strikes). 

F**k our Super Bowls!

The sports entertained American public has paid no mind to the year in year out  suffering of these Afghani children, just as it paid no mind to uncomfortable photos and news reels of dead Korean babies or Vietnamese napalmed children running naked down burning village streets, or piles of dead - children's cadavers without heads arms - printed in foreign publications after the American Blitzkrieg of Iraq .

So f**k Super Bowls, World Series and NBA Championships and university league games as well! 

I mean, if it they distract us from being human, lets put sports on hold, the way the Mexican students tried to put the 1968 Olympics in Mexico on hold, since it took attention away from the suffering of the poor in Mexico. (A whole lot of  students were slaughtered unreported, and it is only recently being discussed and some officials prosecuted a bit.[4] )


American peacenik and antiwarnik journalists and organizations have never made much trouble for media's promotion of false, ignorant and criminal patriotism at these sporting events, hailed and ballyhooed as an honorable and loyal show of patriotism.

One can expect the football field will be covered by a super gigantic American flag, a symbol of horrible death, maiming and destruction to the millions of Asians, who have survived high altitude patterned carpet bombing - senseless deafening explosions of  flying metal in every direction. Repeat f**k our Super Bowl!

There will be jet war planes roaring and streaking over the stadium, also reminding of the US planes that bombed and strafed innocent populations and flew in the skies above Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Dominican Republic, Panama, Libya and tiny Grenada. F**k the Super Bowl.

Just before kickoff, we'll hear a stirringly sung perhaps strident rendition of the Star Spangled Banner crescendoing in intensity through "the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air, that our flag yet waves o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave," ending as if with a huge exclamation mark. Actually, this last line of the official lyrics ends with a question mark, and well it should. What bravery is it to participate in "turkey shoots,' wipe out whole populations in poor formerly colonized nations that fight high tech armed Americans who call in air support whenever. Where is the bravery in destroying a hundred thousand retreating Iraqi soldiers from the air with Gen. Colin Powell watching.

F**k this official war song. Play a recording of Ray Charles' really gloriously sung "America the Beautiful.!" instead.  And f**k this geeky hooray for the cowardly and unmanly bomb, bomb bombing of the non-Caucasian poor wherever and whenever we want to.

All the handsomely and colorfully outfitted players will be macho and fit, inspiring role models of fitness for US Armed Forces personnel stationed in one hundred and seventy-five nations all around the world.  All out there to protect America's war promoting speculative investment banking industry's "atrocity wars meant to maintain unjust and unwanted predatory investments." - quoting Martin Luther King Jr. in his sermon Beyond Vietnam, not what we will hear over the stadium loudspeaker profusely thanking them for protecting America.' 

Me? - i am just as cruel as any other American.  Even though i never completely stop hearing the screams over children's bodies (or their child's"bug splats') and cries of children over dead mommy or daddy (cries that your author even can imagine as heard in various languages, for music performing has placed him among the people of some sixty-seven nations, a good thirty percent bombed by Americans at one time or another.

Successful "kills' by American fired bullets, shells, bombs or drone missiles of "suspected insurgents' that happen during the game will not be announced (perhaps during some future Super Bowl) - no way of knowing how many men, women and children we nail while we watch the plays.

No, just like everyone else, I'll enjoy the exiting and tricky skirmishing to move the football across the goal line.  Great athletes! Terrific passing, running, blocking and tackling skills. Wow! F**k those dying foreign kids quietly starving, freezing to death. I am fascinated in wondering which team will win.

The President, in his State of the Union address mentioned the Super Bowl and 'lying like a rug,' spoke villainous nonsense of wonderful Americans doing a good job of [still after thirteen years?] "chasing down remnants of al Qaida in Afghanistan." Since Obama didn't mention the starving and freezing kids, let your author take a break from his profanity and run down just why these thousands of kids have come to die for the whoppers of falsehoods about a US Realpolitik, which former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark, co-author of both major civil rights acts, calls a "U.S. foreign policy that has been the greatest crime since World War II!"

     - In 1979, the corrupt and oppressive King of Afghanistan was overthrown, and a overwhelmingly popular new socialist government threw open the prison doors and began a program of women's liberation, sending teachers out to provide education for girls who traditionally were without class schooling. [5]

     - Fundamentalist hill tribesmen were furiously against having their daughters in school and began to execute teachers intending to teach women and girls. Master war arranger David Rockefeller's picked appointee Zbigniew Brzezinski, seeing a grand opportunity, convinced President Carter to order the CIA to arm, fund and train the fighters of some of the most brutal warlords, especially non Pushtun warlords, for a terrorist civil war against that Kabul women-liberating socialist government. (The most powerful and infamous war lord, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, had a reputation of throwing acid at improperly dressed women student during his university years.) CIA got important allies in funding and funneling supplies and weapons from the secret services of US allies Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.
   
      - Six bloody months later, a concerned Soviet Union decided match the CIA and to come the aid of the beleaguered Kabul government, sending its armed forces into Afghanistan.  (Bzrezinki would brag and claim later in 1998, in an interview for a French magazine, that it was his plan from the beginning to draw the USSR into a Vietnam like trap. Bzrezinski takes credit for causing the subsequent dissolution of the USSR for its failure in Afghanistan.) [ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: The Man Who Covertly Created Al-Qaeda
thesantosrepublic.com/.../zbigniew-brzezinski-the-man-who-covertly-cre

     - [French magazine Le Nouvel Observateur interviewed Brzezinski in 1998: "Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly 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." ]

     - (Jimmy Carter, who had had a friendly country secretly attacked and condemned to already thirty-five years of death and destruction, and who also gave General and dictator Chun Doo-hwan of South Korea permission to use the Korean army for the massacre of the student Democratization Movement uprising in Gwangju[6], would receive the Nobel Peace Prize. Chun Doo-hwan eventually was tried and sentenced to be hanged.  Carter told the New York Times that "the Koreans are not ready for democracy."[7])

        - The CIA funded the entry of Arabs in to Persian speaking Afghanistan. Brzezinky called for jhad in a welcoming speech to fundamentalist Wahabi Arabs to fight the against the Russians and the Kabul government
eventually setting up thousands of extreme Saudi Arabian Wahabi sect madrasses throughout the country. Which would teach about Western anti-human imperialism preparing many for jihad agaisnt America well before 9/11.
This funding included funding for Osama bin Laden's group that would become al Qaida.
    
      - CIA introduced deadly accurate hand held Stinger anti-aircraft missiles that eventually brought about the withdrawal of the Soviet Armed forces, but it still took the US backed war lords almost another two years after the Soviets left before defeating the Kabul government forces.

     - The two most powerful US backed war then lords rocketed the hell out of Kabul causing an absolute chaos of rape and raiding, and much more devastating destruction that occurred during the US inspired and CIA run civil war. Spontaneously the Taliban "Students of Islam' formed to protect women and children from the prevalence of rape and violent theft, and eventually defeat the US backed war lords and restored safety in society.[8]

in 1996, Taliban created the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan
government, which was recognized by a number of countries and welcomed by President Reagan.

     - After Saudi Arabians suicided themselves flying US airliners into the World Trade Towers, the Bush administration accused Osama bin Laden, and the when Afghanistan government would only agree to turning turning him over to a Muslim country for trial, the US invaded Afghanistan in full force and used the 'Northern Alliance' of those savage war lords defeated by the Taliban to overthrow the Taliban Afghan government. They butchered at the least hundreds of captured Taliban.

     - In spite of having constructed 740 bases with a peek number of 101,000 US soldiers, America has been unable to take the countryside away from Taliban control [3], even with huge amount of armed forces from Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Macedonia, Turkey, Ukraine, Canada, Australia and New Zealand (Quite a show of imperialist Anglo-Saxon led white folks unity).

     - Now in 2014, after the taking the lives of so many Afghani, all completely innocent of the 9/11 attack and any other attack on anyone anywhere, Americans with their so called (basically white) International Security Assistance Force, which includes small contingents from obedient United Arab Emirates, Jordan, South Korea, Malaysia, and Mongolia, and help make a total of some 97,920 troops as of 24 June 2013, is about to give up and stop killing Afghanis in their own country, as often as not in their very own homes for a fairy tale preposterous US lie of chasing the remnants of an al Qaida brought in initially by the US itself. (Seems Wall Street and friends want to hold on to Afghanistan for and eventual oil pipe line transit, but wait a lot of rich minerals have also been discovered of late as well.)

Americans in general watching the Super Bowl, will not be interested to know that America is now using al Qaida linked terrorist to destroy Syria as it used real al Qaeda gangs to destroy Libya two year ago, and yet bombing al Qaida in Yemen and North Africa. (What the CIA is doing with al Qaeda linked groups in Iraq, heaven only knows.) A mindbogglingly majority of Americans on the playing field and in the stadium seats watching believe what the media cartel programs on TV and in sex and sports tabloids for their mis-and-dis-education

An American sports occupied public is easily disinformed, fooled and duped into enthusiastic criminal complicity by US corporate conglomerate owned and controlled media that turns the truth upside down on every issue to excuse and justify US military atrocities in multiple countries at the same time.

First it deceived the public to believe that Afghanis were involved in the 9/11 attack.
Then found them guilty of allowing the Arab speaking warriors that the United States had brought into and widely funded, to stay.
Then, that the Taliban (who had protected women from from the wide spread rape going on during the US funded war lords devastating internecine war after the socialist government in Kabul was finally defeated two years after their Soviet allies withdrew), are bastards.
The Taliban does destroy schools the imperialists build, but the US destroyed a socialist government that brought girls to school for the first time in the hills, a fiendish, diabolical, monstrous, abominable crime against humanity but successful cold war tactic.

Though it was widely reported that the religious Taliban had forbidden poppy cultivation and nearly eliminated what the CIA was know to have been involved in cultivating, years later the Taliban is blamed for the poppy growth the US installed president brother is famous for being filthy rich from.

Even President Karzai, characterized in US media, as dishonest, but a necessary evil, and kept in office by US Armed Forces and troops from every single obliging nation of Caucasian population on Earth, feels obligated to call, beg and feign demand periodically that the US stop bombing his citizens to death. The Afghan legislature or Jirge, has passed resolutions calling for the cessation of hostilities, negotiations and the withdrawal of all foreign military. This is of course ignored. After all, who are these f**king people to tell Americans what to do.

As in the case of other US crimes against humanity, or what Ron Paul calls, illegal and unconstitutional lethal use of US armed forces in invading, bombing and occupying small nations, US media has raised the thirteen year long police action of chasing al Qaeda in Afghanistan to the level of a "War,' a heroic and just war like that of eight plus fifteen year American 'anti-communist' police action in the French colony of agrarian Vietnam. In reality, no war has ever been declared since World War Two. Colonial or Neo-colonial powers only declare formal and Geneva Conventions regulated wars on each other, not on their colonies or former colonies.

How many would prefer watching the top team sport events of a nation that wasn't mass-murdering the poor overseas - at least not during game time?

Here below are a few quotes of America's top intellectuals for pre-game reading during the war plane fly over and the praise of Americans in uniform watching from overseas:

    - MIT Prof. Noam Chomsky-"America must prosecute its own war criminals";    
    - and with Penn University Wharton School of Finance Prof.  Ed Herman, "If the Nuremberg laws were applied, then every post-war American president would have been hanged";
    - Union Theological Seminary Prof. Cornel West "Drones are War Crimes"          
    - Barack Obama's family minister,
     - Rev. Jeremiah Wright-"God Damn America for her crimes against humanity"; 
     - Co-editor Kim Peterson, Dissident Voice, "Justice is required, otherwise what would serve as a brake on future war crimes?"
     - Gold Star Mom Cindy Sheehan,"War criminals need to go to prison for what they have done, no pardon"

The genocide arranged by Western lawless speculative investment banking did not begin with the undeclared wars of the US from Korea onward, and we are now warned to expect permanent war beyond those ongoing in Libya, Afghanistan-Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Lebanon, Syria (while we threaten Iran, North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela.)

For the love of God, when will the five centuries of racist genocide for unholy predatory investments be prosecuted into ceasing. The Nuremberg Principles set of universally signed laws on genocide were written and employed against only a selection of Nazi and Japanese politicians, generals and media personalities after the banker created great world wars between the colonial powers that made US bankers leaders of a single imperialist superpower (quite calculatedly).

These laws of humanity lie in the hearts of men and women throughout the genocidially targeted six-seventh of (non-Caucasian) Mankind.  When will these Nuremberg Principles of universal law come to be fully employed and make genocide an unprofitable investment, unprofitable for an excellent possibility of imprisonment and seizure of assets to pay out compensation for wrongful deaths and injuries, and reparations for massive destruction of property and theft of natural resources?

Super Bowls, and other exciting forms of planned distraction, protect that globalized racist (but eventually race indiscriminate), why-me-worry genocide orchestrated by an international community of speculative investment banking, which has christened itself the 'International Community of Nations,' a semanatically sanitized term that now subsitutes for the former highfalutin and idealistic euphemism 'The Free World,' which had replaced the original proud, majestic and more realistic but no longer acceptable 'Colonial Powers.'  

'Neo-Colonial Powers', 'Free World,' 'Community of Nations,' whatever these big shot robbers of life and land call themselves, they are, in their usual automaton poverty of thought led from Wall Street, presently heavily investing, planning and preparing another world conflagration; a cataclysmic set of wars of yet to be seen science fiction-like high-tech weapons of mass destruction; wars that are expected to bring a monthly amassing of capital in the trillions of dollars. They do this regardless of the planet's ability to survive when society, for incalculable destruction will no longer have the wherewithal to prevent the ongoing ecological disaster of planetary degradation to the point of inhabitability.

Hey, enjoy the game! (Those who can, and are not in a state of fright about drones spooking the sky above their satellite antennae.)

Gwangju massacre, Wikipedia
Anti-martial law demonstration at Seoul Station on May 15, 1980 in which about 100,000 students and citizens participated, following the assassination of dictator President Park by the head of the Korean CIA. ... May 22--25
Blockade of Gwangju, and further atrocities.
At this point, all troops retreated to suburban areas, waiting for reinforcements. During this period the army blocked all routes and communications leading into and out of the city. Even though there was a lull in fighting between militias and the army, more casualties were incurred when soldiers fired at a bus that attempted to break-out of the city in Jiwon-dong, killing 17 of the 18 passengers on May 23. The following day soldiers mistook boys swimming in Wonje reservoir for attempted crossing and opened fire at the kids resulting in one death. Later that day the army suffered its heaviest casualties, when troops mistakenly fired at each other in Songam-dong.
Settlement Committees[edit]
Meanwhile, in the "liberated" city of Gwangju, the Citizens' Settlement Committee and the Students' Settlement Committee were formed. The former was composed of about 20 preachers, lawyers and professors. They negotiated with the army demanding the release of arrested citizens, compensation for victims and prohibition of retaliation in exchange for disarmament of militias. The latter was formed by university students, and took charge of funerals, public campaigns, traffic control, withdrawal of weapons, and medical aid.
The city's order was well maintained, but negotiations came to a deadlock as the army urged the militias to immediately disarm themselves. This issue caused division within the Settlement Committees; doves wanted immediate surrender, while hawks called for continued resistance until their demands were met. After heated debates, eventually the hawks took control.
Protests in other regions[edit]
As the news of the Gwangju massacre spread, further protests against the government broke out in nearby regions including Hwasun, Naju, Haenam, Mokpo, Yeongam, Gangjin, and Muan.
By May 26, the army was ready to reenter the city. Members of the Citizens' Settlement Committee unsuccessfully tried to block the army's advance by lying down on the street. As the news of the imminent attack spread, civil militias gathered in the Provincial Office, preparing for the last stand.
At 4:00 am, troops from five divisions moved into the downtown area and defeated the civil militias within 90 minutes.
Casualties:  Based on reports by foreign press sources and critics of the Chun Doo-hwan administration, it has been argued that the actual death toll was in the 1,000 to 2,000 range. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gwangju_massacre.
