I have been around for a long time and have experienced more than most. The current situation in my experience is the most dangerous time of all for humanity.
Nuclear weapons are no longer restrained by the Cold War MAD doctrine. Washington has released them into pre-emptive first strike form.
The targets of these pre-emptive strikes -- Russia and China -- know it, because Washington proudly proclaims its immorality in public documents describing its war doctrine.
The result is to maximize the chance of nuclear war. If you were Russia and China, and you knew that Washington had a war doctrine that permits a surprise nuclear attack, would you sit there waiting while Washington cranks up its anti-Russian and anti-Chinese propaganda machine, demonizing both countries as a threat to "freedom and democracy"?
The fools in Washington are playing with nuclear fire. Noam Chomsky points out that in a less dangerous time than currently exists, we came very close to nuclear war.
Harold Pinter, one of the last Western intellects, understood the danger in Western arrogance. He denounced the West's crimes and called for the crimes to be subject to established law before it is too late for humanity. In his 2005 Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech, he said...
"We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it 'bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East.' How many people do you have to kill before you qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a war criminal? One hundred thousand? More than enough, I would have thought. Therefore it is just that Bush and Blair be arraigned before the International Criminal Court of Justice."
Dr. Gideon Polya is a professor of science in one of Australia's leading universities. He has a moral conscience, something increasingly rare in the Western world.
His articles are based largely on the just published by Clarity Press two-volume heavily documented Genocide in Iraq. Abdul-Haq Al-Ani is a British-educated lawyer with a Ph.D. in International Law and a Ph.D. in electronics engineering. Tarik Al-Ani, is an architect, translator, and researcher.
Currently I am reading the two-volume work and intend to review it. But Professor Polya's articles suffice as an introduction to Genocide in Iraq. Washington has committed a terrible crime in our name. Washington not only murdered Iraq, Washington has murdered the Middle East. Washington and its despicable vassals -- "the Coalition of the Willing" -- are responsible for a Middle East Holocaust.
For people in the Anglo-American world who have a moral conscience, the facts are soul-wrenching. The populations of the countries whose governments comprised "the Coalition of the Willing" are contaminated with war crimes committed by their governments in the Iraq Genocide. A progressive modern state was obliterated, and 2.7 million Iraqi people were murdered.
The crime was covered up with propaganda that demonized Saddam Hussein and created fear of nonexistent weapons of mass destruction.
The Iraqi genocide was based on a lie, and both Bush and Blair knew it. The two satanic leaders simply decided to destroy a people who they first demonized and marginalized.
Dick Cheney and the neocons continue to justify the genocide and the illegal torture regime that they created in order to produce fake "terrorists" as a justification for their war crimes.
The Western media, especially the New York Times, is also complicit in the Iraqi Genocide, as are the insouciant Western peoples themselves who stood by cheering while millions of people were destroyed on the basis of a blatant and transparent lie.
