Gordon Duff: Are You a War Criminal?Gordon Duff Salem-News.com
A week ago, American helicopters killed, correction, murdered 9 children in Afghanistan. Small children, no weapons... blown to pieces.
(CINCINNATI ) - As World War II ended, America and the allies began a 10 year occupation of Germany.
The first order of business was “de-Nazification,” the removal of all traces of Hitler’s propaganda and war machine from every aspect of German life.
Though Nazi traditions may have virtually disappeared from Germany, the history of the last 66 years has made one thing clear, Nazi traditions have found a home around the world, sometimes as “conservative” or “tory” or “Neocon” or “Christian Nationalism,” Wahhabism and even under the guise of Zionism.
The results are always the same, concentration camps, mass graves, terror bombing of civilians and a slick public relations campaign, heavily financed by the monied elite. In 1940, Adolf Hitler was Time magazine’s “Man of the Year.”
Today, decades later, Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, running the largest concentration camp known to man, the walled ghetto of Gaza, can draw standing ovations from America’s congress while facing arrest nearly every other place on earth. For every Israeli or Libyan crackpot extremist, there are ten, perhaps a hundred, running around Washington.
A week ago, American helicopters killed, correction, murdered 9 children in Afghanistan. These were small children, collecting firewood, clearly recognized, no weapons and they were blown to pieces. The “war”in Afghanistan isn’t just lost. It is way beyond lost now. This was an iconic event, more powerful than a dozen “9/11′s.” Despite General Petraeus’ apology, it wasn’t an accident, no more than a thousand other acts with our fingerprints on them.
It may not be today, not for most Americans but the day will come, the day of reckoning. America has gone to the well too many times, trying to play the world’s heart strings with “9/11.” We are no different than Israel, dragging out the Holocaust to justify dropping American clusterbombs on schools in Gaza. The video proof of that is below.
As Washington hums the tunes of Nazi Germany, Rep. Peter King’s tribute to Israel’s money, a blatantly unAmerican abuse of his office to defame and inflame two billion of the world’s Muslims, it is time for us to examine how far America has fallen, from “land of the free, home of the brave” to terrorist pariah.
CHICKENHAWK ALERT! Rep. Peter King spent the Vietnam War in the NY National Guard, safe from active service. He entered his unit on his first day of eligibility and quit the National Guard when there was no longer a possibility of combat in Vietnam.
What is a war criminal? The International War Crimes Tribunals stated it pretty clearly. Who better than former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, under the mistaken impression he was peddling his self serving and highly fictional book, better demonstrates exactly how a war criminal acts when questioned. Our thanks to Judge Napolitano of Freedom Watch:
A little bit “Eichmann” and a little bit “Sgt. Schultz” from Hogan’s Heroes, we see the classic dodges, outright lying, followed by blaming others, with the Rumsfeld blade going into the back of George “W” Bush over and over and over.
The lists are out there, 1500 names so far, a very real “no-fly list” of Americans, members of the Trilateral Commission, Heritage Foundation, American Enterprise Institute, Council on Foreign Relations, Harvard and Yale grads, West Pointers, the “not so best” and certainly not the brightest of a generation, about a third dual Israeli citizens, facing charges of:
Two dozen tribunals wait, millions of pages of evidence are secured, indictments have been prepared and international law and, in some cases a hangman’s noose, await many, not just Raymond Davis, the American awaiting trial in Pakistan for murder.
WHO CAN BE CHARGED?
This is where the surprises come!
On October 16, 1946, Julius Streicher, publisher of Der Sturmer, a German newspaper, was hanged. By today’s standards, his paper was pretty tame stuff. What he did was propagandize the German public, prestaging persecution and murder of Gypsies and other minorities, including Jews, euthanizing the “useless,” the developmentally disabled, the handicapped and other groups and, of course, supporting the government cover story on the Reichstag fire and other “9/11″ type incidents that conveniently popped up, the “terrorist” acts that the Nazi’s used as justification for war.
Minister of Propaganda, Josef Goebbels, had already committed suicide. His efforts represented the official government policy toward using “information” as war, However, the standard for international law is established and, by doing so, all members of the press, broadcast media and entertainment industry that were involved in supporting the “Global War on Terror” after a certain point, easily the beginning of 2005, face prosecution.
Least complicit but most prominent are the actors who co-produce the various crime dramas that were used to manipulate public opinion and provide cover for kidnapping, torture and murder on a massive scale. With few exceptions, such as Blue Bloods, starring Tom Selleck, racist propaganda spews into American’s homes like a deluge. Whether CSI or NCI, the story is generally the same, prejudice, racism, fear mongering and propaganda. Every phony sleuth and action hero has done their part to brainwash America and need to be called to account.
The Hollywood “B list” would disappear overnight.
Of the “mainstream media,” only Helen Thomas would remain free.
Hundreds of “paid bloggers” are guilty of war crimes. The real surprise, for some at least, will be how many have been subsidized by foreign intelligence agencies, defense contractors and international drug cartels. The trail, proxy servers, offshore accounts, Washington law firms, Pentagon slush funds, weapons cartels and “big oil,” it will become clear where many of those clever emails come from.
Veterans groups and gun ownership organizations will be under close scrutiny also as will most military retiree organizations.
The “Policy Machine”
Most Americans don’t know. Elected officials simply take orders, even the president. It is impossible to be nominated and elected or retain public office without financial support from powerful special interests, the most powerful of which is AIPAC, representing Israel. However, AIPAC is one of dozens of groups that, not only send American to war at a whim but go even further, planning military operations and, in the last decade, waging war around world, both public and covert, using, not only America’s military might but tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands of mercenaries, many of whom are now exposed as terrorists.
Without these organizations, there would have been no “9/11.” They planned it and the governments, such as they are, simply turned away and took orders. How do we know? When NORAD, the most comprehensive and effective air defense command on earth suddenly went offline on 9/11/2001, we knew.
This is AIPAC’s speakers list at their March 2001 “extravaganza;”
We all really knew then, every one of us.
The rest of the “hype” about hijackers and box cutters and terrorists, we all knew better.
Anyone who can’t admit they knew better is a coward and liar.
Tell me you didn’t say to yourself, “Why didn’t they shoot down the planes?”
End of story.
The Unholy Men of G-d
A common Nazi belt buckle said “G-tt Mit Uns.” The Nazi party was always Christian, “kirche, kinder, kuchen.” (church, children, kitchen)
As Christian and Antisemitic as Nazi Germany was, as nationalistic, racist and extremist, American and Israel have surpassed that aspect of Nazi doctrine with ease.
America has its “big haired preachers,” bilking the flock one day, spreading race hatred the next while peddling a degenerate and extremist version of Christianity deemed as unrecognizable heresy by most scholars. Islam has its Taliban, stoning women and executing televisions.
Israel, the best selling book there is the King’s Torah, a rambling diatribe of racist insanity that makes Mein Kampf seem like a girl scout manual.
Then there is Israeli military historian, Martin Van Creveld:
“We have hundreds of nuclear warheads and missiles that can reach different targets in the heart of the European continent, including beyond the borders of Rome, the Italian capital… our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us.”
Doesn’t he sound like he is sitting in the Fuhrer-bunker in Berlin, April 1945, threatening the allied armies closing in on him? This kind of childish insanity is common in Israel, common in America and the kind of thing heard as part of religious worship by millions of families.
Forty percent of American Christians belong to violent Zionist sects. The leaders of these sects are considered war criminals for advocating mass killing, race war and torture.
In America, of those who supported illegal torture policies of the Bush administration, over 85% were from these extremist “red state” sects.
Years ago, brave American troops, first our special operations “first tier” guys, followed by our active duty and, eventually our reserves, National Guard and tens of thousands of “rent-a-cops” from the poorest and most backward nations on Earth, enjoined on a misconceived “retaliation” against enemies now known to be more “home” than abroad.
Within a short period, a vast network of private contractors and rogue agencies were running drugs, training terrorists, kidnapping, murdering, duplicating and even exceeding the actions of Germany’s SS and einsatzgruppen. An international cabal of intelligence agencies, security contracting firms and a special operations command controlled by political and religious groups inside the US organized terror attacks that continue to this day, from the Detroit “crotch bomber” to Mumbai, London, Madrid and across Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Brigadier Asif Haroon Raja writes for Veterans Today:
“Under the plea of keeping a watch on terrorists and netting them, CIA and FBI established Forward Operating Bases (FOBs) in FATA, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan. The two agencies soon took complete control over intelligence gathering and dissemination and marginalized the role of ISI and MI. These FOBs became spying and clandestine operations hideouts to destabilize FATA and Balochistan. Their task was not to control terrorists but to fan terrorism, sectarianism, ethnicity and separatism by subverting the loyalties of people, cultivating agents within militant and criminal groups and using them for assassinating important personalities, clerics and pro-government tribal elders and for sabotage and subversion. Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in FATA and Baloch Liberation Army in Balochistan were the creation of CIA duly helped by RAW. Banned Jihadi groups were goaded to join up with TTP.
These same operations against Pakistan were also focused against American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, terrorist forces, paid, armed and trained by American contracting firms and Israel’s Mossad, keeping casualties flowing and orchestrating violence against NATO forces.
If war is about opium, oil, gas pipelines and defense contracts, then keeping war going is business. Long ago Marine General Smedley Butler told us “War is a Racket.” War criminals are criminals, racketeers that put Al Capone, even the top criminal of all time, Meyer Lansky, to shame. Today’s criminals send out carrier battle groups instead of “hit men” and, as with Israel, use nuclear weapons for shakedowns instead of a brick through a plate glass window.
Every night is kristallnacht, some children have never known anything else.
A couple of weeks ago, Veterans Today staffer Ken O’Keefe sent me the video he had taken during an Israeli bombing raid in Gaza. As seen in the video’s above, the target was civilian, this time a medical supply warehouse. An American built F 16 dropped an American built 2000 pound bomb directly into the middle of a residential district in the middle of the night in order to destroy medical supplies.
Secretary of State Clinton and President Obama, though occasionally speaking out about “settlements” in the West Bank, their usual sucking up to their Saudi money-friends, were in full support.
Those who voted to sell the planes to Israel are war criminals. Are those who built them war criminals also? How do we judge?
How about those who failed to report this and other crimes? Who will speak for the dead children at the AIPAC conference in Washington?
Who speaks for any of us?
