"My name is wasi'chu. I know thee, I have found thee, & I will not let thee go."

The Lakota were the first people who lived on the northern plains of what today is the United States. Lakota means "human beings". Wasi'chu is their word for a human condition based on inhumanity, racism, exploitation, and greed. It is a sickness, a seemingly incurable, contagious and fatal disease, which begot the ever-advancing society of the West".["The Continuing Indian Wars", by Bruce Johansen and Robert Maestas.]

"You know the cause of our making war. It is known to all white men. They ought to be ashamed of it."

[Pompeo: I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole]

It was the Nez Perce tribal chief "Thunder Rolling Down the Mountain", better known as Chief Joseph who is credited with coining the phrase ""white man speaks with forked tongue".

The US government has made more than 500 agreements, promises, and treaties with Native American tribes, all of which it breached, in one way or another.

During the 20th century the US has failed to honor its word on many agreements, such as the broken 1950's Geneva Agreements that led to the Korean War in 1950, and the Vietnam War that lasted for decades after World War Two. It is estimated that as many as 8 million people were killed in those two conflicts.

When it comes to nuclear weapons, the US has failed to join, breached or withdrawn from treaties, and recklessly been the cause of the Doomsday Clock sitting at 2 minutes until Armageddon. Obama lost 4 minutes during his watch.

The US withdrew from the historic Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM) and the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). The US is in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and has been from almost the beginning in 1968.

What's even more upsetting is the US government paying young Navajo/Hopi Native American's $10,000 to sign an affidavit they will leave the reservation and not come back. In order for business interests who want to exploit the mineral wealth the reservation sit on.

The USA has done much good in the world, but this does not make up for the bad it has caused, and there is much to be ashamed about what this country has done in the name of promoting "Freedom and Democracy."

It's a travesty our current Socialist POTUS tRump admires tyrants while chastising our allies, with N. Korea and Saudi Arabia as examples. Though 15 of the alleged 17 PNAC 9/11 hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, yet tRump want to provide them with nuclear technology, while denying Iran the same, though they had complied with the nuclear agreement between the globalist stooge Obama and Europe.

Iran has rightful reasons to distrust the USA with forced regime change the CIA made installing the Shah. With only a select few enjoying the benefits while the country's population was terrorized. It would be in the US/world's interests if Bone Spurs MacPussy Grabber would negotiate rather than demanding terms to Iran, but tRump's ego and ineptness can't be upstaged! It's more about the $ and the nuclear card is just the ploy for the former Reagan War Criminals and other chicken-hawks in tRumps administration who desire regime change.

As I said, the bomb, nuclear enrichment, and nuclear energy has nothing to do with the US's attacks on Iran. Those are all just pretexts. Unfortunately, most of the public falls for the demonization. The msm has made sure of that.

Stan, Stan, Stan, it grieves me greatly, that you are stuck in a time warp. Why is it, that folks like yourself are unable to see these issues are not Trumps doing ? As this article clearly demonstrates for anyone with an open mind, the ground work was laid many years ago by successive Presidents, who to this very day, have never ever been called to account for their crimes.

But, all you can see is Trump ???????????????????

If this is an example of American societies blinkered thinking, then it's no wonder we're staring a Word War in the face.

Wait. So you are blaming Orange Mussolini for deposing the democratically elected leader of Iran and putting the Shah in his place? I thought that was Jimmy Carter... How is it that a posturing buffoon who could not even find the countries he's bombing on a map gets all the "credit" for these illegal acts when they occurred waaaaaay before he even got escorted into the White House by equally criminal fools in the DNC who insisted on giving the people of the USA only a filthy, cheating war criminal in a pantsuit as their only other choice? Please stop calling that reality show buffoon a "socialist". ALL of your credibility went into the crapper when you did that.

Can you explain why you posted the 911 video here? According to the laws of physics and the laws of aerodynamics, what is attested to in that video could not have occurred.

It is not about 911, it is about how nonchalantly the public feels, and lack of empathy, when the US attacks others with "limited surgical strikes". I also considered a video of Pearl Harbor attack, which was not the "official version" either.

I mentioned both events in the preceding paragraph as examples of US public's casual reaction to when the US inflicts on others a "911".

The US is now dropping a "9/11" on somebody every 12 minutes, every day, 7 days a week. One bomb every 12 minutes.

So how did you like the rest of the article?

Well it's a lot to get through, but important as is everything you write. Important to know the history. It helps to read your conclusion first. Washington no longer recognizes any international law. It is above all law from its warped vantage point. It's heartbreaking what american greed has done to the world, to people, and to nature. I have concluded that it is no longer possible to walk back from this level of corruption or for any of us here to change it. All we can do is sit by and hope they cannibalize themselves. It is possible that Russia and China will bring them down , do what we cannot do, although most of us would likely die alongside the monsters in that case.

Yes, Lila - all Three World Trade Center Towers exploding "in broad daylight" on 9/11 AM and 9/11 PM yet the official explanation remains "no explosives were involved" - "the height of stupidity", "for sure" (e.g.,"it did not collapse from explosives or or from fuel oil fires" - Shyam Sunder NIST Lead Investigator). #PrePlantedExplosives "used" - #ConclusiveEvidence has been "reported" to the #USAttorney. #ReThink911 - #WTC7 "brought down" quite professionally at 5:20PM. Certainly, the accused "nineteen Saudi hijackers" could not have come back later on that afternoon at precisely 5:20 PM to "detonate" Building 7. II. "The controlled demolition, therefore, had to be the work of insiders".

Spot on Lance. I've been saying for years, "why Americans never question building 7". In fact many Americans are totally unawares there even was a building 7. I recall watching t.v. on the day, and the guy who owned the building, said himself, on air for the whole World to see/hear, "HE decided to pull the building ". How could someone decide on the spur of the moment, to design and secure explosives in strategic locations to bring down a building in a matter of minutes ??????????

Yet very few people in America ever raised that question. That in it'self, is a worry.

Who will be held accountable? The slowly encroaching schizophrenia to keep my disgust and anger separate from me assuming responsibility for the despicable US government actions is debilitating. Why cannot I raise my arms? I am coming undone by this twisted psyop that is already engulfing me.

You've made the case again Mr. Pear. For all of history.

Yes, it is a damning case, just writing it left me drained. There is not much hope for a society built on genocide and slavery. It will take a socialist revolution to bring anti-imperialism democracy, and I ain't talking B.S.

David, well done, an awesome article that should be published far and wide.

I'm in awe of your capabilities. Most of the information you have exposed I have sourced over the years from various sources, thus am not exactly ignorant of their existence or effect they have on today's issues. But, it's a relief to see it all in one article. Well done again mate.

Thank you Eddy. Maybe we can share our knowledge. I have been studying this for awhile too.

If you have not read it, I highly recommend " Losing an Enemy....", by Trita Parsi.

Others have said that they suspect that the US never intended to keep the agreement.

P.S. I am not an international lawyer, so if I have made mistakes I hope people will correct me.

I was thinking about what the goal is of 'full spectrum dominance . One world slavery - with much of the present population wiped out so that there are more resources for the remaining elite to exploit - . Once the US - in its dreams - has achieved total control over the planet using bombs, what do these monsters want ultimately? Orwell's nightmare. a global slave population - to use for labor and sexual exploitation.(since we now know these swamp creatures worship satan) Naturally any nation that responds to the needs of its people must therefore be erased. This year we have Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Iran. Who is on the menu next year? Iceland, Finland, Norway? The bankers have taken over all governments in western Europe already, so they are in the bag. (The gilets jaunes can march til the cows come home. the bankers just yawn.) Russia and China won't play, so if their sicko wet dream is to be realized, a world war must be fought. Never mind that the US could never win that war. not possible. My base assumption is that the swamp creatures would rather die in a nuclear Armageddon than lose power. that is where we are. If there are actually aliens hanging about here, please step up and intervene.
