Worth the war? For whom?

Think of Dubbya's smirking contempt as his tame audiences stand, then applaud and accept whatever he says. No, Reader, you have no need of pictures; you have seen him often enough to remember the familiar scene now and forever.

Likewise, Cheney, bland, devious and deceptive.

Ditto Blair, adroit, smooth, grinning, shifty and patently dishonest.

Also little Aznar, smirking, evasive, mendacious, careless.

Not forgetting Howard, shadowy, oblique, oblivious and unscrupulous.

Ask yourself, would you honestly even pause if you saw any of them stumble in the street? Will you honestly mind when any or all of them die? Will you or any of us grieve at the absence of any one of them? - Honestly?  

Yet, quite apart from the wounded and maimed, four thousand Americans have been obliged to die forever for them, and a million Iraqis and Afghanis have been killed forever for them, and all the multiple families of the dead have been cast into genuine grief by this needless slaughter and loss of their loved ones, and the world has paid some trillions of dollars for them, and America has been made bankrupt by them and by those who moved them to play out the deception. Because they all simply pronounced in their various accents according to the script written for them, "The threat is not imaginary, it is real," and went ahead with what they all knew was a deliberate lie. - For gain. And enough credulous fools believed them to enable them to carry through what we now see was a bare-faced crime on a world scale by a few cheap crooks in smart suits before strategically-doting cameras.

Yet still these same few cheap crooks, who cynically and deliberately have done all these innocent people nothing but harm in the interest of their own pockets, now say according to the present script, "The war was worthwhile," and in order to maintain the occupation and pry yet more cash from the situation, talk of 'our enemies in Iraq', where there never were and never have been enemies. - For further illusory gain.

But we are still really expected to swallow this?

On the other hand, we might well ask ourselves, apart from these still-posturing devious clowns, who benefits? We might look at the international dual-nationality advisers and policy-makers and bribers and blackmailers and lobbyists who moved and still move these whom we had supposed to be 'our leaders', and question what benefit is in these wars for those who employ and pay them.

And we might therefore ask ourselves who they are who really rule all our countries. We might also want to question these 'our leaders' and punish them for their loyalties misguided for their trivial profit at such a real and bitter cost to us and to all the world. We might want to open their eyes and make them care.

We might also even want to shrug off the intolerable burden of this international yoke that we all have needlessly borne for far too long at far too high a price.

But to do so will reveal treachery on the part of some of our own? Of course it will, and these will continue to betray our trust until or unless they are stopped. But they are few, and we are the vast and powerful majority.

So now these few villains are planning more wars to manuever us to fight and die and be maimed in for them? And Monsanto has declared their intention to monopolize world food production via seed modified to resist their own lethal glyphosate Round Up (when 'the cattle' are corralled prior to slaughter) herbicide, thus enabling or withholding food production as they wish to force compliance to their intentions?

It requires little imagination to see that the Rockefeller sponsored Longyearbyen seedbank of all the Earth's present seed varieties at the Svalbard Global Seed Vault is therefore intended to repopulate the planet with native varieties after the rest of us have been eradicated from it. Also 'their' W'H'O Mexican and Philippines trials proved that they can effectively sterilize our women with their human chorionic gonadotropin-adulterated tetanus vaccine. Their intentions toward the rest of us are quite clearly malign as their intended New Neanderthals.

No, obviously for the rest of us God's version of the planet is better.   So, people of the world, it's time for us to grasp the nettle!
