Is the Bush Regime a state sponsor of terrorism?
A powerful case can be made that it is.
In the past three years, the Bush Regime has murdered tens of thousands of
Iraqi civilians and an unknown number of Afghan ones.
U.S. Marines, our finest and proudest military force, are under criminal investigation
for breaking into Iraqi homes and murdering entire families. In an unprecedented
event, Gen. Michael Hagee, the Marine Corps commandant, has found it necessary
to fly to Iraq to tell
our best-trained troops to stop murdering civilians.
Gen. Hagee found it necessary to tell the U.S. Marines: "We do not employ
force just for the sake of employing force. We use lethal force only when justified,
proportional, and most importantly, lawful."
The war criminals in the Bush Regime have dismissed the murders as "collateral
damage," but they are in fact murders. Otherwise, there would be no criminal
investigations, and the Marine commandant would not be burdened with the embarrassment
of having to fly to Iraq to lecture U.S. Marines on the lawful use of force.
The criminal Bush Regime has now murdered more Iraqis than Saddam Hussein.
The Bush Regime is also responsible for 20,000
U.S. casualties (dead, maimed for life, and wounded).
Bush damns the "axis of evil." But who has the "axis of evil"
attacked? Iran has attacked no one. North Korea has attacked no country for
more than a half century. Iraq attacked Kuwait a decade and a half ago, apparently
after securing permission from the U.S. ambassador.
Isn't the real axis of evil Bush-Blair-Olmert? Bush and Blair have attacked
two countries, slaughtering their citizens. Olmert is urging them on to attack
a third country – Iran.
Where does the danger to the world reside? In Iran, a small, religious country
where the family is intact and the government is constrained by religious authority
and ancient traditions, or in the U.S. where propaganda rules and the powerful
executive branch has removed itself from accountability by breaking the constitutional
restraints on its power?
Why is the U.S. superpower orchestrating fear of puny Iran?
The U.S. government has spent the past half century interfering in the internal
affairs of other countries, overthrowing or assassinating their chosen leaders
and imposing its puppets on foreign peoples. To what country has Iran done this,
or Iraq, or North Korea?
Americans think that they are the salt of the earth. The hubris that comes
from this self-righteous belief makes Americans blind to the evil of their leaders.
How can American leaders be evil when Americans are so good and so wonderful?
How many Serbs were slaughtered by American bombs released from high above
the clouds, and for what reason? Who even remembers the propagandistic lies
that the Clinton administration told us about why we absolutely had to drop
bombs on the Serbs?
Wasn't it evil for the U.S. to bomb Iraq for a decade and to embargo medicines
for children? When U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was asked if she
thought an embargo that resulted in the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children was
justified, she replied, "yes."
The former terrible tyrant ruler of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, is on trial for killing
150 people. The U.S. government murdered 500,000 Iraqi children prior to Bush's
invasion. When the U.S. government murders people, whether Serbs, Branch Davidians
at Waco, or Iraqi women and children, it is "collateral damage." But
we put Saddam Hussein on trial for putting down rebellions.
Gentle reader, do you believe that the Bush Regime will not shoot you down
in the streets if you have a rebellion?
