Snowden and Ellsberg hail leak of drone documents from new whistleblower as the shattering story of how our anti-Muslim wars of aggression are waged overseas. There are a number of elements of this ugly butchery which astonishes me. One is the artwork: it looks like it was done by alien ant-creatures. It makes the skin crawl. Oddly done computer maps and weird text styles give me the shivers. It reminds me of the Nazi documents that were ‘odd’ looking, too. I have a German book of schizophrenic artwork done in hospitals there and this artwork looks quite similar. I don’t think the artists are insane (or perhaps are!) but rather, they distance themselves from the facts they are painting so coldly.
The Drone Papers is a must-read. Like the Pentagon Papers which were no shock to me, this doesn’t surprise me, it is just depressing. During the entire length of the Vietnam war, my entire teen and early adult years, I campaigned against the various wars in Southeast Asia. It was very dangerous, doing this. I was interviewed by the FBI more than once, for example. Students running from the government sometimes passed through my hands due to my international contacts. It was truly a life and death battle at home as nameless millions of people in Asia were bombed and shot and starved by various battling sides and then suddenly, it just stopped.
The US finally gave up. More misery for the poor people of Southeast Asia but today, all is well there, more or less. The Eye of Mordor is elsewhere, namely, in the Middle East and any major Muslim concentrations of money or energy. The US no longer has the draft so all is quiet here. Our media owners nearly unanimously support the Muslim wars because many of them are Zionists.
The US public snoozes along, carelessly allowing these obvious war crimes for what Obama and his buddies in DC are doing is ‘war crimes’. Assassinations are war crimes especially when these have a 98% rate of killing bystanders or unknown Muslims (similar to the ‘the best Indian is a dead Indian’ saying from 150 years ago here). Over and over again, the use of assassins has been condemned by the US as ‘immoral’. Assassinating Presidents is ‘evil’. Sneaky killing is dishonorable. Cowardly!
Note that Obama is at the very top of the pyramid of assassins. ‘If POTUS approves the CONOP…’ then the drones do it. From 2001: What are the rules for government-sponsored assassinations? article discusses the brand-new ‘Authorization for the Use of Military Force Against Terrorists‘ which back then meant bombing poor Afghanistan yet again and then heavily, illegally and criminally turning it on an innocent bystander, Iraq. Which was thoroughly destroyed by the US invasion and is a broken state today. Back then, we openly invaded using traditional means. But it remains a war crime and a blot on the US which won’t go away.
When we elected Obama, everyone celebrated thinking that the dark, ugly days of the Bush regime was over and we were in a happier time. Instead, insidiously, Obama turned into Bush and it is the nature of the Beast in DC. All of this deterioration in US morals comes straight from the Zionists who conquered the Holy Land and imposed a brutal rule on the natives. They heartily believe in dark cloak assassinations even as this takes down their own leaders, it just feeds the Beast even more blood.
Allegations of the United States’ (U.S.) involvement in assassination plots against officials in Cuba, Vietnam, the Congo, the Dominican Republic in the 1960s and Chile in the 1970s are examples cited regularly to demonstrate that the use of political assassination is still in vogue.1 In 1998, the U.S. Congress debated lifting the ban on political assassinations by the U.S. intelligence communities contained in Executive Order 12,333.2 And Israel, a sturdy U.S. ally unashamedly conducts state sanctioned assassinations of Palestinians and other Arabs whom they allege to be terrorists.
The debate on lifting Executive Order 12,333 is curious for at least three reasons.
First, the use of assassinations as a foreign policy tool seems to conflict with the U.S. logic in enacting Executive Order 12,333. Strategically, hegemonic empires like the ancient Romans had an aversion to assassinations in inter-state relations. The U.S. itself has previously enacted Executive Orders against the use of assassinations with such logic in mind.3
Secondly, the debate on lifting Executive Order 12,333 prompts questions as to what exactly international law has to say about the legality of an assassination? If assassinations are legal, in what ways are they regulated by international law?
The paper about assassinations correctly notes that the Roman Empire did not believe in using assassins instead, preferred forthright battles and open warfare and other tools. This was seen universally as a moral choice. The US believed in this too, back when it was founded. Our ‘Founding Fathers’ were very enamored by history and examined the ancient and modern empires and states to see how to craft our state. The rock upon which the US crashed were two rocks: the native American tribes and African slaves. Both issues led to a lot of wars, bloodshed, crimes and horrors. We still struggle in the shadow of these two issues.
We celebrate our ‘freedom’ every 4th of July but this is ingenious. Note the ‘rocket’s red glare’ in our national anthem we play every 4th. We also know that the First World War was launched by an assassin. The Civil War ended with an assassination of Lincoln. I grew up being taught that assassins are evil. And…they are evil if you are content. Desperate people use assassinations due to weakness, not strength. When a strong power descends into using this tool of desperation, terrible evil is hatched and we can see how all this is aging Obama who sprang into the White House with a light step and a smile.
Now, grey haired and stooping, grimacing and walking around aimlessly, he is deteriorating rapidly. The loss of innocence is obvious. Way, way back in 1965, I dedicated my life to uncovering and exposing CIA crimes. As a partial insider to all that via my poor dad, I spied on him heavily to figure out how our secret government works and then openly defied President LBJ and then Nixon. Been beaten, been arrested, my phones tapped (I used to play jokes on them all the time until they freaked out trying to find some low level agent to listen in on my chats).
When I warned the BATF about Waco before it happened, they called me within 3 minutes of the bomb going off. When I warned the FBI about 9/11 a week before 9/11, no one called after the jets began to crash into their obvious targets. This terrible business of training and then allowing terrorists to attack Americans in order to start a war with a country that had zero to do with the terrorists remains a major, major, gigantic, WWII level war crime and no one is being punished and internationalists at the UN and in Europe, etc., remain silent about all this and this is why we are in the mess we are in today.
Israel and Saudi Arabian despots wanted this stupid assassination program. They are delighted with it and happy the US is committing these crimes and it doesn’t stop them from doing the same, we are all in the same boat sailing down the River Styx together, helplessly as our Charon rulers paddle madly into the mouth of the Cave of Death. God bless America!
