Tearing Down the Empire Project: This speech represents a moment of extreme truth for the NATO powers. The United States,
Great Britain, France and the lesser powers have been throwing their
weight around Asia and Africa without regard to the norms of civilized
behavior Their drill includes attacking countries that pose no threat to
any NATO member; engaging in ruinious sanctions as a negotiating tool; threatening war; and,
engaging in military actions as a matter of routine. Laurent Louis, a Belgian MP
and crusader for human rights, spoke to parliament and laid out the
truth behind naked aggression and the lies that justify it. Michael

LAURENT LOUIS, MP: Thank you, Mr President. Dear Ministers, dear Colleagues.
Belgium is indeed the land of surrealism.
This morning we learned from the media that the Belgian army is incapable of fighting some extremist soldiers having radical Islamist beliefs existing within its own ranks but who cannot be dismissed for lack of legal means.
However, at the same time, we decide to help France in its war against "Terror" by providing logistical support for its operation in Mali. What wouldn't we do in order to fight against terrorism outside our borders? I just hope we took care not to send for this anti-terrorist operation, in Mali, these much talked about Belgian Islamists soldiers!
I seem to be joking, but what is going on in the world today does not make me laugh at all. It doesn't make me laugh, because without any doubt, the leaders of our Western countries are taking the people for imbeciles with the help and support of the Media which are nothing more today than an organ of propaganda of the ruling powers.
Around the world, military actions and regime's destabilization are becoming more and more frequent. Preventive war has become the rule.
And today, in the name of democracy and the fight against terrorism, our states grant themselves the right to violate the sovereignty of independent countries and to overthrow legitimate leaders.
There has been Iraq and Afghanistan, the wars of the American lie. Later, came Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, where thanks to your decisions, our country has been "first in line" to participate in crimes against humanity, in each case overthrowing progressive and moderate regimes and to replace them with Islamist regimes, and - isn't it weird ? - Their first act was to impose Sharia law.
This is exactly what is currently happening in Syria where Belgium is shamefully funding the arming of the Islamist rebels who are trying to overthrow Bashar Al Assad. Thus, in the midst of economic crisis, as more and more
Belgians can no longer house themselves, feed, heat and cure themselves - Yeah, I can hear what a filthy populist I am - well, the Minister of Foreign Affairs decided to offer the Syrian rebels nine million Euros!
Of course, they'll try to make us believe that this money will be used for humanitarian purposes ... one more lie! And as you can see, for months, our country is only participating to put in place, Islamic regimes in North Africa and the Middle East. So, when they come and pretend to go to war in order to fight against terrorism in Mali, well... I feel like laughing. It's false!
Under the appearance of good actions, we only intervene to defend financial interests in a complete neo-colonialist agenda. It makes no sense to go to help France in Mali in the name of the fight against Islamic terrorism when - at the same time - we support the overthrow of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad by Islamist rebels who want to impose Sharia Law, as was done in Tunisia and in Libya.
It is about time to stop lying to us and treating people like imbeciles.
