"Presidential Proclamation -- Armed Forces Day, 2012


With every assignment and in every theater, America's men and women in uniform perform their duties with the utmost dignity, honor, and professionalism. Through their dauntless courage and dedication, they live up to our Nation's highest ideals in even the most perilous circumstances. On Armed Forces Day, we pay tribute to the unparalleled service of our Armed Forces and recall the extraordinary feats they accomplish in defense of our Nation."

At least a billion people in the so called undeveloped or developing world sustaining overwhelming US military attack since 1945 as they  attempted to liberate themselves from colonial and neo-colonial exploitation and being plundered same as before World War Two by the empires of the Europe and the US, will be reading or listening to President Obama's heartless words with their own thoughts reverberating in between his phrases.

"With every assignment and in every theater " (Korea, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Lebanon, Dominican Republic, Panama, Grenada, Iraq, Libya etc.) , "America's men and women in uniform perform their duties," (killing now in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen), "with the utmost dignity" (and superiority ), "honor" (among the dishonor of atrocities from Sinchon and Go Run to Mai Lai to Fallujah to villages in Afghanistan) "and professionalism" (during genocidal extermination of the necessary significant portions of indigenous uncooperative populations all over the world.)  " Through their dauntless courage and dedication, they live up to our Nation's highest ideals" (of American exceptionalism, belief in predatory capitalism and the primacy of the interests of American investors) in even the most perilous circumstances" ('perilous' for fighting heroically determined armed defenders of their homelands from bombing, invasion and occupation by the world's superpower using devastating weapons of mass destruction).   

"As individuals, our service members set extraordinary examples of character" (what could be in the President's mind as he says these words knowing of the constant wire services reporting of massacres by US and NATO armed forces) "for those whose freedom they protect." (no, they take away our freedom and kill us to protect US business interests from our own people ruling us?)   "Together, they comprise the greatest force for freedom and security the world has ever known." (? Truly, lying words of a madman or devil).  ...

"As we celebrate the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen who make our way of life possible" (a desperate, self-centered, depressed, commercialized, ugly, frightened materialistic 'way of life' devoid of natural charm, grace and nobility and in pervading bad taste and inhumanity, unlike any ever seen on earth before 'made possible' as Martin Luther King, a wonderful internationally beloved African American said, by mass-murder of fellow human beings in order to maintain the unjust predatory investments of wealthy private Americans who control the wealth and resources of half the planet), "we also pay our deepest respect to their families, our missing, our wounded, and our fallen." (how insincere, in reality horribly disrespectful to those who died, deceived into participating in the murdering and maiming of millions of innocent and men, women and children for the profits of the immoral and incomprehensibly greedy in complete disregard of the taking lives of beautiful women and children of others). "Inspired by their service" (to wild and insane inexpressible evil) "and humbled by their sacrifice" (not humbled, instead disgustingly political pretending to care), "let us recommit to providing all those who have served our Nation" (no, to the Nation's ruling rich and powerful homicidal and criminally insane thieves) "the support they deserve." (how to support those poor Americans already dead, who died ignominiously for an inexpressibly  ignorant, depraved, villainous, demonic, monstrous, shocking, despicable, atrocious, heinous, odiously contemptible cause?)

"NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States" (winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize after just beginning the bombing of yet another nation, Pakistan), "continuing the precedent of my predecessors in office" (his immediate predecessor was Bush the second, just this week convicted by the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal * of crimes against humanity), "do hereby proclaim the third Saturday of each May as Armed Forces Day."

"I direct the Secretary of Defense" (former Head of the infamous CIA) "... to plan for appropriate observances each year, with the Secretary of Defense responsible for encouraging the participation and cooperation of civil authorities and private citizens" (to thereby spread the feeling of complicity and guilt for the government ordered war crimes evenly among all Americans. ...).

"Finally, I call upon all Americans to display the flag of the United States" (so universally hated as a symbol of US illegal and undeclared wars on vulnerable peoples already poor from years of imperial occupation and domination of their countries) "at their homes on Armed Forces Day ...


* an international tribunal founded by the anti-imperialist former Prime Minister of Malaysia in view of the International Court of the Hague refusing to accept prosecution of the US and its allies.
