AMERICAN WAR CRIMES AND CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY


The Guardian - Steve Bell on the war of aggression in Iraq

I must blast Saddam to Hell.

The reason why, I cannot tell.

But this I know, and know full well,

I must blast Saddam to Hell.


BUSH AND BLAIR, BARBARISM IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR JUSTICE! WHERE ARE THE IRAQI WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION AND THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT'S TIES TO AL QAEDA?
You LIED to the American and British people, in order to justify a criminal war of aggression, to justify a MORTAL SIN, as the Catholic Church has declared it to be (see below.)
Bishop John Michael Botean, head of the Byzantine-rite Romanian Catholic Church of North America and Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of St. George in Canton, Ohio: "I must declare to you, my people, for the sake of your salvation and mine, that ANY DIRECT PARTICIPATION AND SUPPORT OF THIS WAR AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF IRAQ IS OBJECTIVELY GRAVE EVIL, A MATTER OF MORTAL SIN." - Canton, Ohio, U.S.A., 9 March 2003

Robert Fisk - The Independent: U.S. MILITARY TRIED TO CENSOR COVERAGE OF SADDAM HEARING - This is typical Jewish-American "freedom of the press" and "impartial justice" travesty. If this is how they treat a head of state, an elected president (not an appointed one like George W. Bush), why are we surprised at the monstrosities perpetrated at Abu Ghraib, Kala-I-Jangi in Afghanistan, Guantánamo Bay or back home in the Jewish-American prisons? The vast majority of the people on the death row in the U.S. are innocent (68% in the state of Illinois, according to the governor). They just did not have the money to hire an expensive defence attorney with the right "connections". They are also mostly Blacks and Hispanics - no Jews, of course. Did you know that the vast majority of the prisoners in Guantánamo Bay were delivered to the Americans by the Uzbek warlord Dostum, simply because their impoverished families could not raise 3,000 dollars to buy their freedom? Aren't you proud to be an American? Happy Fourth of July! - 3 July 2004

David E. Sanger and Robin Toner - The New York Times: BUSH AND CHENEY TALK STRONGLY OF QAEDA LINKS WITH HUSSEIN - Co-president Dick Halliburton Cheney, the "brain power" behind the throne: "The press coverage of the commission's findings is outrageous...They do a lot of outrageous things... The press wants to run out and say there's a fundamental split here now between what the president said and what the commission said." "The commission did not address the broader question of relationship between Iraq and Al Qaeda in other areas, in other ways... THE EVIDENCE ID OVERWHELMING". And he went on to quote the same "contacts" between Iraq and Al Qaeda that have been analysed and discarded as irrelevant by the 9/11 Commission.
The evidence is overwhelming indeed that this White House team belongs in an insane asylum or, better yet, it belongs to the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (ICC). No wonder the U.S. government is furiously lobbying for an extension of the immunity of U.S. citizens from prosecution for war crimes. - 18 June 2004

Bush sincerely believes that God has chosen him for a mission to save humanity, as we find out from the researchers who interviewed him and several of his neo-conservative associates. His truth is a revealed truth and no objective proof to the contrary has any value in his deranged mind. Misleading America and the world, lying to everybody's face is perfectly OK, if it can further his mission. It looks like a textbook case of Satanic possession. Maybe exorcism is the only cure for America's misfortunes... - 18 June 2004

Douglas Jehl and Eric Schmitt - The New York Times: ERRORS SEEN IN EARLY ATTACKS ON IRAQI LEADERS - Bombing underground bunkers that did not exist, starting a war because of alleged weapons of mass destruction that did not exist, torturing and humiliating prisoners deprived of the most elementary human rights in Guantanamo, Iraq and Afghanistan, total disregard for international humanitarian laws and the Geneva Conventions, carpet bombing of German and other European cities that had no military value whatsoever in World World Two (Dresden where 250,000 German civilians as well as Russian and Polish war prisoners where burnt alive on February 13, 1945, is the most famous but by no means an exception. How about Hamburg in 1944-1945 or Bucharest, Romania in April 1944?), mass murdering hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians at Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, turning over 2 million former Soviet citizens to be slaughtered by the NKVD in 1945-1948 and as late as January 13, 1957 when President Eisenhower, the most infamous war criminal of World War Two, turned over to the KGB in Bratislava a trainload of Soviet military who had defected during the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 and had requested political asylum in Germany and Austria. THOSE ARE THE DEFINING MOMENTS OF AMERICAN STATE TERRORISM, WHICH, TOGETHER WITH ZIONIST STATE TERRORISM (Irgun Zwa Leumi, Hagana, King David Hotel in 1947, Deir Yassin on April 13, 1948 and hundreds of other Arab villages in 1948, Ramallah, Jenin, Bethlehem, Gaza City, Rafah and countless others in our day), IS THE PARAMOUNT THREAT TO INTERNATIONAL SECURITY AND PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE TODAY.

Every single statement is a lie. The three Italians and the Polish hostage were handed over by the Fallujah guerillas upon payment of 9 million dollars.

And keep in mind that his speeches are written by 'professional' speech writers and 'spin doctors'. This crowd would never make it through the fourth grade in ANY European, Asian, Latin American or African school. It is frightening to realize that these White House bipeds are truly representative of the cultural level of the average American, which is way below the cultural level of Papua New Guinea, home of 826 languages.

Their expressed motives to spread democratic freedoms are different, but their air of ARROGANT NATIONAL SUPERIORITY equals that of those defeated World War II nations Germany and Japan. Few Americans agree the United States' new role as international moralist and law enforcer resembles Hitler's Germany, Hirohito's Japan or Stalin's Soviet Union. They believe we use our powers selflessly to set up peaceful democracies in the world, while those nations sought brutal dictatorial international dominance. THEY IGNORE THAT ECONOMIC AND MILITARY POWER IS COERCION when used beyond one's borders. It becomes a form of DICTATORIAL DOMINATION'...'Most Americans believe our superpower and international cop status increases our national security. THE OPPOSITE IS TRUE.'- 31 May 2004

Their record is nearly as perfect as Ariel Sharon's, which is no small accomplishment...They said that Mr. Brahimi would have a free hand to nominate the new "sovereign" government of Iraq and they are forcing his hand at every turn in order to get the paid C.I.A. agents in controlling positions.

NBC News: TERROR THREAT SOURCE CALLED INTO QUESTION - In a desperate attempt to shift the media focus away from the criminal abuse of prisoners in Guantanamo, Iraq and Afghanistan, the Bush administration has perpetrated another "terrorist threat" hoax. It turns out that the only "source" of Ashcroft's latest "threat" comes from an opportunistic little web site, which, according to several terrorism experts interviewed by NBC News, has no links to Al-Qaeda. The 'Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades' is a largely discredited group which 'is not taken seriously by the Western intelligence'.

Josh White - The Washington Post: NFL PLAYER TILLMAN KILLED BY 'FRIENDLY FIRE' - Very 'friendly' indeed! This article gives you a good idea how the U.S. soldiers act in a combat situation. They shoot in all directions (no wonder they need an additional 300 million bullets) and they kill civilians or other soldiers. They 'mis-identify' allied Afghan soldiers as enemies and shoot them on the spot. Not to mention the nagging suspicion that a man who has been successful in his civilian life (Tillman's last contract was worth 3.6 million dollars) may become an intended target for other soldiers who used to be grocery clerks or pizza delivery boys before joining the Army, where one can 'kick ass' and shoot anybody with impunity...(Comment by Michael Olteanu) - 30 May 2004

Warren Hoge and Steven R.

His most spectacular accomplishment has been to pass to the British government ("in good faith", of course) the outlandish claim that Saddam Hussein could render his non-existant WMD's fully operational in 45 minutes (the famous "45-minute WMD claim" that has dogged Blair ever since). The U.S. warmongers have conveniently presented it as "intelligence provided by the British government". Brahimi was surprised that the U.S. and Bremer could promote such a discredited person to a position responsible for organising "free and democratic elections" in Iraq. This is a good illustration of the "sovereignity" masquerade played by Bush and his gang of war criminals. After all, Bush has managed to steal the U.S. presidential election in 2000, therefore stealing the Iraqi elections in 2005 should be 'a piece of cake', 'a walk in the park', as they say in American dialect...(Comment by Michael Olteanu) - 29 May 2004

Transcript - The Guardian: JOHN KERRY ON NATIONAL SECURITY - Earth-shattering news, folks! The barbarian destruction we saw in Israel (i.e. in Rafah, Gaza City, Jenin, Ramallah, Bethlehem, etc.) was not done by the Israeli army using U.S weaponry and equipment. It was all done by Al-Qaida, no less! Not even arch-criminal Ariel Sharon, the "butcher of Sabrah and Shatila" had the nerve to offer such an 'explanation'! The entire speech is a living testimony of the moral bankrupcy of America's political system which breeds monsters of this caliber! Fictitious WMD's, the false information provided by Chalabi and his gang, the doctrine of pre-emptive wars, the Guantanamo and Abu-Ghraib monstrosities, general Sanchez, general Miller, the total disregard for humanitarian laws and the Geneva Conventions are not mentioned at all! All we have to do, according to John Kerry, is to 'persuade' other nations to follow the U.S. in its descent into barbarism. He manages to make George Bush look like a genius, since all Bush 'policies' will be carried on by Kerry (John Dean has appropriately called Kerry "Bush lite"). He also does not seem to realize that Al-Qaida may strike the U.S. again, if they conclude that Bush is about to lose the November elections. Al-Qaida has strongly endorsed George W. Bush in a statement dated March 15, 2004, and they may decide to failproof his re-election. (Comment by Michael Olteanu)- 28 May 2004

Julian Borger - The Guardian: U.S. INTELLIGENCE FEARS IRAN DUPED HAWKS INTO IRAQ WAR - This is BIG news, folks! The "U.S. Intelligence", an oxymoron, has finally found the guilty party for starting the disastruous Iraq war! No, it is not George W. Bush, who stated to his cabinet in their first meeting on January 30, 2001, that they must "work" on Iraq. The warmongers are the Shia ayatollas of Iran (remember the "Axis of Evil"?) who manipulated Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Feith, Luti and their ilk into starting the war in Iraq by passing tons of erroneous information on "Iraqi weapons of mass destruction" (remember those?), courtesy of Ahmad Chalabi and his staff. All of a sudden, there is "hard evidence" that Aras Karim Habib (Chalabi's intelligence chief) has been a paid Iranian agent for many years. I suppose the ayatollas faxed to the mentally retarded specimens in Langley, Virginia a bunch of receipts and/or reports sent by their agent Habib. But then it's difficult to define "hard evidence" these days. Remember Colin Powell's "hard evidence" presentation of Iraqi WMD on February 5, 2003? The centerpiece was a series of satellite photographs of alleged mobile WMD laboratories. I've always suspected the ayatollas were doing satellite photography in their spare time...(Comment by Michael Olteanu) - 25 May 2004

Iraqi citizens will have no right to pursue legal action for the killing of their relatives, the destruction of their homes, the looting of their property, for torture and humiliation. That is democratic freedom indeed! Without a doubt, the Iraqis will seek redress of grievances the same way they do now, by ambushing and killing the occupiers, who certainly deserve a one-way flight home in a body bag (no cameras, please!). Too bad that the ones filling the body bags are rarely the ones guilty of personally abusing and killing the Iraqis, but this is the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Wolfowitz/Cambone concept of justice, which will win them a well deserved place in the infamous history of genocide...- 23 May 2004

I was a political prisoner in communist Romania for five years (1959-1964) and I have witnessed hundreds of beatings (including my own) and scores of prisoner killings. None of them were as inhuman as the ones inflicted by the American military in Iraq and Afghanistan and there certainly was no sexual torture of any kind. The Romanian Securitate, which was at the time commanded and controlled by K.G.B. officers, definitely included individuals as inhuman as some of the American military, but they were under very strict supervision at all times. They were not "free" to manifest their bestiality as these American monsters are. (Comment by Michael Olteanu) - 16 May 2004

In this incident, the Saudi Royal Guard, whose members are selected by and who take a personal oath of allegiance to the King, were definitely involved in the Al-Qaida bombing.
