On Conglomerate owned TV channels, viewers watch veterans in hospital beds, missing arms, legs and other body parts, being visited by the world’s most famous simple-minded celebrity, smiling and openly enjoying himself while ‘cheering up the boys’, now maimed, who he sent to invade, occupy and kill in Afghanistan and Iraq to protect the United States from Saudi Arabians - (Saudi Arabians having flown suicide attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on 9/11.)
Off camera, he might also be congratulating these wounded on their having gotten rid of Saddam Hussein, whose country his daddy had enjoyed invading, wiping out the Iraqi army, and bombing Baghdad, although as Vice President, under Ronald Reagan his daddy’s task had been to work closely with Saddam to help him invade and war against Iran. (Iran has been a U.S. government enemy since its students took over the U.S. Embassy as a CIA terrorist nest)
That ever jovial, charming, affable, ‘regular guy’, maximum leader, Commander in Chief, President George Bush Junior, is the son of a former Head of the CIA, President George Bush the First, and grandson of Senator Prescott Bush who had his property seized under the Trading with the (Nazi) Enemy Act, and is a great grandson of the super wealthy banker George Herbert Walker, a director of many corporations for W. A. Harriman, who also had his business interests seized for Nazi banking in 1942, mid-WWII.
Seeing that the CIA has a reputation of being a secret, murderously criminal organization for overthrowing democratically elected governments of vulnerable small nations on the orders of the president, (to improve the earnings on investments of U.S. corporations), and since making money on investments in Nazi Germany is hardly something to be proud of, it would seem that there is little in reviewing the lineage of the president affectionately called “Dubya” to inspire confidence for military personnel being asked to make the supreme sacrifice or even just the sacrifice of a body part.
Vets can’t help but notice the enormous billions of dollars made by corporations, especially those oil companies connected the Bush family, those corporations Vice President Cheney holds stock in, and the war industries interlocked in ownership with conglomerate media which promotes continuing wars of occupation.
The scare of communism justified the thirty yearlong crucifixion, by the millions, of the mostly farmer population of the French colonies of Indochina. For eight years U.S. administrations paid the French army bills, and thereafter 58,000 American military paid with their lives. Today, the U.S. backs that same communist government of Vietnam for WTO membership and presidential candidate Mike Gravel cries out in debate that they all died in vain.
How many Vietnam War vets listen, shake their heads, and wonder why they didn’t go to Canada like 125,000 others facing the draft.
Since 2002, the catch phrase “The War on Terrorism” justifies another round of crimes against humanity with millions of lives lost.
But the use of Islamic extreme fundamentalist terror first began when President Carter secretly funded, armed and trained the fundamentalist hill tribes, attacking a modern women emancipating government in Kabul, in order to sucker the Soviets into entering Afghanistan SIX MONTHS LATER. The cover up of this now well documented covert use of tribal fundamentalists as a cold war weapon that would come back to haunt America was blown away by Carter’s advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, when he bragged of causing the collapse of the USSR, during a French Newspaper interview in 1998. ('Le Nouvel Observateur')
“Question: The former director of the CIA, Robert Gates, stated” in his memoirs ["From the Shadows"], that American intelligence services began to aid the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan 6 months before the Soviet intervention. In this period you were the national security adviser to President Carter. You therefore played a role in this affair. Is that correct?
Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise: Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.”
What if our troops today occupying Iraq and Afghanistan should learn of President Carter's heartless criminally homicidal secret attack on a small friendly nation's government using ethnic and religious divisions to foment civil war? (Our presidential CIA government is above all laws, treaties, and our own constitution.)
This week, an exceedingly unpopular American president lectures, “Like the heroes before them, today a new generation of men and women are fighting for freedom around the globe”
“around the globe”? Half of the globe’s resources belong to U.S. corporations. How much more ‘freedom’ do they need? Half of humanity is living on less than $2.00 a day – in ‘freedom’.
Major-General Smedley Darlington Butler, a 33-year veteran of the Marine Corps who was twice decorated with the Medal of Honor, “War is a racket. A racket is best described as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small ‘inside’ group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the
expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes."
