Neo Cons Want More War in Middle East

f

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

Even as our illegal war in Iraq makes things worse and worse, as we commit war crimes all over Asia Minor, even as we flaunt the Geneva Conventions and make illegal assassinations legal by allowing a CIA operative to get away with bombing a civilian airliner from Cuba, we scream about Syria doing the same thing, all so we can strengthen Israel who is illegally oppressing the Palestinian people. This is a recipe for disaster.

The other day, a 92 year old man was arrested because he hit a man and severed off the man's leg and the body was now draped through the windshield. The old man who had an interior vision of himself as a good person who would never ever commit a crime, simply edited out the reality that he just murdered someone. So when he was finally stopped, he was indignant and surprised. This is how America operates. We commit grave crimes yet when we are confronted about this, we become indigant. "We are the good guys," we say, petulantly.

From the WSW:
A senior British military police officer in Iraq, Captain Ken Masters, was found hung in his military accommodation in Basra on October 15.

Masters was commander of the Royal Military Police’s Special Investigations Branch (SIB), charged with investigating allegations of mistreatment of Iraqi civilians by British soldiers. According to the Independent newspaper, in this capacity Masters “had examined almost every single serious allegation of abuse of Iraqi civilians by British troops,” including “the cases of the fusiliers convicted of abusing prisoners at Camp Breadbasket near Basra and a paratrooper who has been charged in connection with the death of Baha Mousa, a hotel receptionist.”

In recent weeks, Masters was thought to have been involved in the investigation into the events of September 19, when Iraqi police arrested two British undercover Special Air Service (SAS) officers in Basra.
The Iraqis have hard proof that the British (Israeli?) SAS people were terrorists. The roaring silence about this issue in the American media is telling. In Britain, it raised a firestorm. The news I gleaned for several days were very coy about how this inspector died. One would think that an inspector sent to live with the criminals he is investigating would be in grave danger but no, they sent him literally into the lion's den unarmed.

Since Shi'ites have been attacked by bombs when they march in their parades, the Quisling government of the USA and Britain there than rushes to blame unnamed Sunni. Now we know who was doing this, and this has killed THOUSANDS of Iraqis such as the bomb scare that caused a stampede---We no longer see this happening, do we?

So, is the USA calling for the UN to investigate the SAS terrorists who are under the command of the USA? Huh? I don't hear a peep about this at the UN, do I?

From Associated Press:
"The consensus of the world intelligence community was that Saddam was a very dangerous threat," Hughes said days after the ousted dictator went on trial in Baghdad on charges of murder and torture in a 1982 massacre of 148 Shiites in the town of Dujail.

"After all, he had used weapons of mass destruction against his own people," she told a small auditorium with around 100 students. "He had murdered hundreds of thousands of his own people using poison gas."

Although at least 300,000 Iraqis are said to have been killed during Saddam's decades-long rule - only about 5,000 are believed to have been gassed to death in a 1988 attack in the Kurdish north.

Hughes twice repeated the statement after being challenged by journalists. A State Department official later called The Associated Press to say she misspoke. The official, who was traveling with Hughes, spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to talk publicly to the media.

Hughes, a longtime adviser to President Bush, was visiting the world's most populous Muslim nation as part of Washington's effort to enhance the U.S. image abroad.

Students from Indonesia's oldest Muslim university pounded her with questions on U.S. foreign policy, in particular the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan and Washington's support of Israel.

One said the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks should be taken as a warning to America for interfering in the affairs of other countries.

"Your policies are creating hostilities among Muslims," a female student, Lailatul Qadar, told Hughes. "It's Bush in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and maybe it's going to be in Indonesia, I don't know. Who's the terrorist? Bush or us Muslims?"
Hughes, our "ambassador," repeats rank lies to people who know the truth. Understandably, this angers them. It angers me. Dripping with blood, she goes to Muslim nations and tells lies. "I don't see any bodies in our Hummer's windshield," she says with indignation.

The CIA and our government has a long, horrible record of assassinations, assassination attempts, coups and dirty tricks that extend deep into America as well as the world. Just one example is the Kissinger/Pinochet assassination of the Chilean ambassador right in downtown DC. No one has been brought to justice on that. And then there is President Kennedy's assassination. Our attempts on Castro's life. And many others, a thousand others. So of course, with all these bloody bodies in Bolton's windshield, Bush and he wax lothe screaming about little Syria. From the New York Times:
President Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called Friday for urgent Security Council action in response to a United Nations report implicating high ranking members of the Syrian government in the assassination of Rafik Hariri, the former Lebanese prime minister.
As our Neo-nazi government creates death and war across the planet, we cry about this? I don't see the Muslim nations screaming about this. We have absolutely no right to scream about this murder because of course, Cuba wants us to extradite a known assassin to Venezuela to stand trial for mass murder! And we won't do it. We tell them to drop dead.

Infuriating, isn't it?

We know that Israel wants us to hog tie or better yet, invade Syria. They imagine our joint empire will make both of us very powerful. As America hemmorages power, blood, money and good will, we imagine that hitting more pedestrians will make our journey go smoother, won't it?

The burning of the bodies of the "Taliban" peasants while taunting the other peasants, our refusal to even give out the news about the Basra SAS terrorists and what is going on there, our refusal to talk about Russia's war crimes vis a vis the Chechnyans which is why the war there is now raging out of control, an attack on a Russian city being the latest episode in that war that Putin re-provoked when he had his little coup at the Kremlin in 2000, we remain silent because we are fighting Muslims, too.

For they know and we gloss over that this is a religious war provoked by Western imperialist powers seeking the fabled wealth of the East. And we won't let go of their lands, their resources, their wealth. We want it all for ourselves. The world's supposedly richest nation needs to loot all the world's Muslims. Isn't that charming!

Meanwhile, with thousands of bleeding corpses plastered all over our windshield, we careen down the road to Hell.
