Nuremberg Trials Nuremberg Trials: looking down on the defendants' dock. Ca. 194 by by Ca 194


Preface to the Survey Question:

An Explanation Of Why It Is Put Principally To Antiwar Writers And Investigative Journalists:

Blaming policy, politicians, media, corporations, but never holding America, Americans, responsible as MLKjr did, Antiwar Journalists have been exposing mass-homicide for the purpose of thievery committed by Americans in dozens of poor nations since immediately following WW II.  They detailed America's bloody overthrow of democratic governments in Greece, Guatemala, Congo, Korea, Iran, Vietnam, and Laos, denounced the obvious crimes against humanity easily seen on TV in Lebanon, Dominican Republic, Panama, Cuba, Cambodia, Grenada, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Somalia, Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq, but as movement, less forthrightly those in Yugoslavia and Libya and those of today crimes in Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan, other African nations and in the murderous military occupation of Afghanistan, but with what intention?  Also, the tendency of alternative media writers appears to bow to topicality, thus tending to argue on the corporate-media agenda the particular genocide that is ongoing, and leave forgotten last year's successful travesties, even more so, America's perfidious genocide in Vietnam and Korea, as now distant unrelated history.

Mindbogglingly, these fine investigative journalists of Internet"s alternative media appear to limit their faultfinding to America's reelected and appointed politicians, the corporate media cartel that backs them and justifies America's wars on humanity, and much less frequently (if at all) seek to identify as causal, the amoral-by-nature automaton businessmen operating the usurious commercial, industrial, financial speculative-investment banking conspiracy that rules both American society and, increasingly, the world.

The puzzlement that prompted this article's questionnaire is a brutally simple one:  

"How would all this exposed truth and detailed information have any meaning for America's millions of victims, if there is no intention to promote the prosecution of Americans who planned and are planning, who created and go on creating, who propagandized and propagandize today, who participated in and continue to participate in now, and especially those Americans who have reaped and are still reaping enormous financial reward from America's near seven decades of atrocity wars and covert homicide without any fear, without any concern, of possible punishment and incarceration for their American homicidal crimes?
 
Yours truly is dead sure that the antiwar writers the question in the title is hereby being seriously put to, are more than conversant with the clearly worded Nuremberg Principles, The General Treaty for Renunciation of War as an Instrument of National Policy, and the articles of the US Constitution that makes both of these an integral part of the law of the land.

(Dear readers who are not knowledgeable about the wording of the laws might consider clicking on the link to the purely educational, but stimulating to action, Prosecute US Crimes Against Humanity Now,  which provides succinctly the pertinent laws, exhortations by Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King Jr., Noam Chomsky, Ed Herman, former US Att. Gen. Ramsey Clark, Cindy Sheehan, Cornel West, and Kim Peterson, editor of Dissident Voice, "Justice is required, otherwise what would serve as a brake on future war crimes?" The website features a color-coded  country-by-country history of US crimes in nineteen (and counting) countries.)

Being the most sensitive and highly educated in the nation, America's progressive and revolutionary writers are also aware that it is happens as often as not that Common Law and the laws within the scriptures of all religions are often quoted in legal pleas.

Questionnaire for All Antiwar Writers and Investigative Journalists:

Given your wide investigations into the deadly criminal nature of US foreign policy and your awareness that candidate for the Republican nomination for President of the United States of America, US Representative from Texas, Ron Paul, MD, has been heard on prime time news for months warning that all US wars, invasions and bombings since end of World War Two have been illegal, unconstitutional and therefore crimes against the people of those nations and against America as well, when, if ever, do you anticipate a Nuremberg Principles trial of Americans for crimes against humanity and crimes against peace?

Choose one:
a. next year  
b. in 2015  
c. in 2016 
d. after wars with Iran and China
e. never

Post Script:
This writer, as the archival research peoples historian for the website: Prosecute US Crimes Against Humanity Now and coordinator of the Martin Luther King Jr. Condemned US Wars International Awareness Campaign [http://kingcondemneduswars.blogspot.com/], which is endorsed by every sincere peace organization in America (and a few abroad) and almost every prominent antiwar author-historian-journalist, has over the last six months, personally approached many of these endorsing colleagues and mentors asking if they would consider working the idea of urging a public call for the prosecution of US crimes against humanity into their writing.

With few exceptions, this polite request has provoked responses like "Everyone knows that I stand against the wars," or "I have always called for the arrest of President Bush (and or Obama) (as if my humbly-put request had not made it clear that calling for the prosecution of one or more 'fall guys' was not only misleading but would leave investors and facilitators and profiteers of the wars free to continue, as was the case in the intentionally incomplete Nuremberg prosecution of Nazi Germany"). [see footnote *]

About a third of my attempts have been met with arguments such as, "The courts are controlled and will not prosecute." "It would be like whistling in the dark." "A waste of time, they control media." "Cannot be done, why uselessly try." "Work instead to educate, further, influence Congress."  (As if Congress was not "owned" by wall street along with the other two branches of government as FDR wrote to his friend Colonel House in 1932.)

Usually, when it is pointed out that Martin Luther King Jr. had no court that would overturn racist 'laws' and violence against minorities, but prosecuted them in the court of public opinion in the street and media; that Gandhi had no court to evict the British military, so prosecuted the British in the hearts and minds of the Indian people and gave the English no option but to leave; that in 1979, Iranians had no court to prosecute the murderous Shah, my correspondents usually discontinue the exchange, or in cases where I have argued too insistently, "Please remove me from your mailing list," and in one case, profanity from a revered fellow historian whose monthly reports I am a fan of and never miss reading.
