Top 10 American War Crimes

Most Americans like to think their military is a tool for preserving the freedom and well-being of people throughout the world. Generations of American soldiers have indeed performed noble and heroic feats in defense of these values. However, since the earliest days of the nation, encounters with the US military have often meant death and destruction, as opposed to freedom and justice. From the American Revolution to the War on Terror, soldiers from every generation have taken part in atrocities of one form or another. If there is any hope for preventing American war crimes in the future, the past transgressions of the US military must be acknowledged and, when possible, the perpetrators brought to justice.

War Is A Racket By Major General Smedley Butler

“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street.

The Founding Fathers Warned Against Standing Armies

The Founding Fathers distrusted standing armies.

For example, James Madison said:

In time of actual war, great discretionary powers are constantly given to the Executive Magistrate. Constant apprehension of War, has the same tendency to render the head too large for the body. A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defence against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.

Madison also noted that never-ending war tends to destroy both liberty and prosperity:

Why The Founding Fathers Opposed A Standing Army

Their revolutionary experience of the founding fathers forged a deep mistrust of standing armies. They viewed them as a pernicious threat to liberty. Here are just a few quotes that explain how and why the idea (what we would call a police state today) was anathema to the first Americans.

During the Virginia ratifying convention, James Madison described a standing army as the “greatest mischief that can happen.”

In addition, fellow delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 1787, George Mason put a finer point on it:

“No man has a greater regard for the military gentlemen than I have. I admire their intrepidity, perseverance, and valor. But when once a standing army is established in any country, the people lose their liberty.

Shocking moment women's soccer crowd BOO as US Armed Forces enlistees are asked to pledge loyalty to President Trump in 9/11 ceremony

A U.S. Armed Forces swearing in ceremony during a National Women's Soccer League match in Oregon on 9/11 drew loud boos from the crowd when the enlistees were asked to pledge allegiance to President Trump.

The ceremony took place in the middle of the field at Providence Park stadium in Portland on Wednesday night as a way to commemorate 9/11 during the Portland Thorns and North Carolina Courage game.

The group of enlistees were initially cheered on by the 17,000-strong crowd when they started taking the Oath of Enlistment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was unfortunate in the extreme; can we, as a nation, manage to please keep politics away from sports?!?!?

And there have been many moments which I have felt that President Trump has been a colossal disappointment as President.

But when I criticize him, I work to be as fact-centric as possible, so that the points I am making will not get lost in a sea of vitriol.

There are many more productive things to do, if one does not like a political incumbent; petitioning; peaceful protests; and getting out there to encourage people to vote, and get them registered to do so.

Drone attacks trigger huge fires at Saudi Aramco oil facilities, Houthis claim responsibility

Get ready for price increases on your gasoline courtesy of Donald Trump and the US Militaries support of Saudi Arabia and their genocide in Yemen!

Houthi rebels in Yemen say they deployed 10 armed drones which hit two large Saudi Aramco oil facilities on Saturday morning, causing massive fires and huge clouds of smoke on the sites.
The attack was carried out by the Houthi Air Force, the spokesperson for the Yemeni rebel group, Brigadier Yahya Serai, said on Al Masirah TV, vowing to “expand the operations against the Saudi regime in the future.”

REPOST: WTC Missing Gold - Precious Metals in WTC 4 Vault: Only a Fraction Recovered?

Assuming that the above reports described the value of precious metals in the vaults before the attack, and that the $230 million mentioned by Giuliani represented the approxmiate value of metals recovered, it would seem that at least the better part of a billion dollars worth of precious metals went missing. (It is not plausible, of course, that whatever destroyed the towers vaporized gold and silver, which are dense, inert metals that are extremely unlikely to participate in chemical reactions with other materials.

DRONE ATTACK ON SAUDI OIL FACILITIES IS MAJOR ESCALATION: The full details of the most recent attack on September 14 were not available on Saturday morning and it was not clear where the drones had come from.BY SETH J. FRANTZMAN SEPTEMBER 14, 2019 12:48

The attacks began around four in the morning; video showed massive fires, billowing smoke and locals reported explosions. Iranian media implied that the attacks were carried out by Houthi rebels in Yemen, who have been backed by Theran. However the facilities that were struck are in northeastern Saudi Arabia, closer to Bahrain and Qatar. A drone would have to fly 1,000 km. to reach the facilities.

But the attack was also a serious escalation. This is the third attack of this kind, a long-range strike on key oil infrastructure. It shows that ability of the drone operator to carry out precision attacks. It also shows they have improve the ordnance carried by the drones, and that the drones can fly long-distances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This coverage, by jpost.com, is a far more sane, and nuanced article than those hitting other blogs on this topic, and one thing was made very clear here; at this moment, no one knows who was to blame. However, the Daily Mail didn't hesitate to run with the following headline:

Iran-backed militants admit drone swarm strike on world's largest oil processing plant in Saudi and at second nearby facility sparking huge fires as tensions reach boiling point following tanker attacks

The article then went on to state the following: 'A military spokesman for Yemen's Houthi rebels, considered an Iranian proxy force in the region, has claimed responsibility for today's attacks on Abqaiq and Khurais, two major facilities in eastern Saudi Arabia run by state-owned oil giant Aramco.'

OK, Henry Martin, and FHP, if the guy was stating this information publicly, who, please, was he?!?

Because forgive me; but one thing I learned in my civics class, was that reporting was all about "Who, Where, What, Why, and How." How can people believe this codswallop when you have refused to let your readers know who actually made this statement?!?

PressTV.com gave an interesting touch, by claiming that the attacks didn't come from Iran, but rather by Houthi rebels, and here is the way they covered it: Fires engulf Saudi Arabia's oil facilities after drone attacks

This article (unlike Daily Mail), then states the following: 'The movement's military spokesman General Yahya Sare'e said 10 drones were deployed against the sites in Abqaiq and Khurais, and pledged to widen the range of attacks on Saudi Arabia.

Now, this guy appears to have been around for a long time, as the public face of the movement; Image: General Yahya Sare'eHe looks to be somewhere in his later 30s, and has the face, and demeanor, of someone intimately acquainted with war.

But the questions which need answering, include:

1. Why would Iran want to be blamed for attacking Saudi Arabia right now?!?
This makes utterly zero sense. The Iranian leadership understands that if, somehow, they are being blamed for this attack, and "the crud" of these accusations is somehow made to stick it, will hasten a US/Saudi /(and, probably covert) Israeli attack against it.

2. Where are these sophisticated drones in the the rebels' arsenal, actually being made?!? Are they truly Yemeni created home made weapons, or from other Shiaa supporting enclaves in the Middle East?

But there is one thing I do know; a couple of days ago, Netanyahu was in Moscow, and made the following statement: Meeting Putin after 3-hour wait, Netanyahu vows to stop Iran’s attacks on Israel:

On pre-election trip with an eye on Russian-born voters, PM says Tehran’s presence in Syria is ‘intolerable threat,’ credits his ties with Putin for best Moscow-Jerusalem relations

But the problem is, these attacks have been against Syria; not against Iran proper.

Painting a drone with national colors of an enemy country, or any enemy group, is no big deal; but the big question is, did Netanyahu make this call because he's three days away from the National Election in Israel (and with all Knesset seats up for grabs, I might add), and is looking to have a full-scale war against Syria by the time Monday rolls around?!?

In looking at this, in the most sang-froid way possible; cui bene?!? Who benefits?!?

This doesn't benefit the Houthi rebels, because Saudi Arabia and the US will pound down harder and harder on Yemen.

Iran doesn't benefit, because characterizing these Houthi rebels as being "pro-Iranian" simply brings the date of a serious air/land conflict between Iran, the US and Saudi Arabia ever closer, with Russia most probably taking Iran's side in the conflict.

But Israel, mounting a full-tilt boogie attack by bombing Saudi Arabia's oil structure,, with falsely colored drones, and blaming the alleged strike against Yemen, could definitely benefit Israel, by creating an environment ripe for escalation, in Syria, and quickly.

Please remember that word, "quickly"; if I am correct, we could see the events in the Middle East stumbling out of control as quickly as tomorrow, 15 September. Folks, I am so hoping that I am dead wrong on this, but the degree to which Israel is playing its hand in Syria, so close to the Israeli election, does give me cause for concern here.

The End of Israel

The lesson to be drawn from the current Israeli political stalemate is that Israel is imploding, breaking into the elements it has never managed to integrate into one. The schism is no longer the more quotidian dichotomy of Ashkenazi vs. Arab Jews (aka Sephardim); this divide is ideological, religious, spiritual, political, ethnic and cultural. Nor does it break down to Left and Right, Jewish Israelis are politically with the right even when they pretend to be ‘Left.’ Although some of the most astute critical voices of Israeli politics and Jewish fundamentalism are Israelis (such as Gideon Levi, Shlomo Sand, Israel Shamir and others), there is no political Israeli Left. Israeli politics break down into a lot of extreme right voters and many ordinary hawks. The Arab Joint List Party is practically the only Left party in the Israeli Knesset. This should not be surprising any more.

Why would Israel spy on Donald Trump?

Benjamin Netanyahu categorically denies a report in Politico that Israel placed sophisticated eavesdropping devices near the White House.

“We have a directive, I have a directive, no intelligence work in the United States, no spies. And it’s vigorously implemented, without any exception,” the Israeli prime minister said in response to the report.

“It is a complete fabrication, a complete fabrication.”

Amos Yadlin, a former Israeli intelligence chief, is even trying to discredit the Politico report with the usual smear of anti-Semitism:

Latest Russian spy story looks like another elaborate media deception

When I was 20, I studied at the Leningrad Polytechnical Institute, in the waning days of the Soviet empire. Most of the Russians I met were amusingly free of stress caused by following news. Why would they bother? Bull-factories like Rossiskaya Gazeta and Leningradsaya Pravda were basically collections of dreary government news releases rewritten to sound like news reports.

I saw newspapers in Leningrad shredded into slivers of toilet paper, used in place of curtains in dorm rooms, even stuffed into overcoat linings as insulation. But I can’t recall a Russian person actually reading a Soviet newspaper for the content. That’s how useless its “news” was.

We’re headed to a similar place.

Russia prevents Israeli airstrikes in Syria

According to the report, Moscow has prevented three Israeli airstrikes on three Syrian outposts recently, and even threatened that any jets attempting such a thing would be shot down, either by Russian jets or by the S400 Anti-aircraft missiles. The source cited in the report claims a similar situation has happened twice, and that during August, Moscow stopped an airstrike on a Syrian outpost in Qasioun, where a S300 missile battery is placed.

‘We have the most to lose, but no right to vote’: Palestinians under threat of annexation speak out on the upcoming Israeli elections

With only days left until Election Day in Israel, candidates are doubling down on their proposed policies and promises to voters. For Netanyahu, that means vows to annex swaths of West Bank land, and messages to voters about “Arabs annihilating us all.”

In what many analysts have likened to US President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016, much of this year’s race for Prime Minister in Israel has been colored by anti-Arab sentiment, race-baiting, and pandering to the far right.

GOP Reps return from AIPAC trip attacking BDS and implying that annexation might be the answer

In a September 10th speech, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that he would annex a third of the West Bank if reelected. Netanyahu’s declaration comes just a month after dozens of congress members (Republicans and Democrats) traveled to Israel as part of a trip sponsored by the American Israel Education Foundation (AIEF), a branch of AIPAC. Recent comments by Republican members of the delegation suggest that the trip is being sold as an indictment of the two-state solution and an attack on the BDS movement. These statements indicate that GOP support for Israel is moving beyond cynical two-state solution rhetoric and toward a more public embrace of Netanyahu’s annexation vision.

The 9/11 Deception Remains In Control Of America’s Destiny

The 18th anniversary of 9/11 is over, but 9/11 isn’t. September 11, 2001, is the defining event of America’s 21st century. The neoconservatives used their false flag event to destroy the Bill of Rights and turn the American people over to a police state, and they used the New Pearl Harbor that they orchestrated to launch their wars of aggression in the Middle East for the purpose of reconstructing the Middle East in Israel’s interest. The new American police state will become more oppressive as time goes by, and now that Israel has the bit in its teeth the United States will likely be forced into a war that will result in nuclear Armageddon.

Israel Accused Of Spying On The U.S.; Trump Denies Despite Past Actions Of Espionage

By Aaron Kesel

The U.S. government has concluded that Israel set up cellphone surveillance devices that were found near the White House and other sensitive locations around Washington, D.C., according to three former senior U.S. officials with knowledge of the matter, NPR reported.

According to the website, the espionage actions were done through the use of Stingrays utilizing “international mobile subscriber identity-catchers” or IMSI-catchers which capture the contents of calls, text and data use.

This is according to forensic analysis, conducted by the FBI and other agencies working on the case that stated they felt confident that Israeli agents had placed the devices, according to the former officials to spoke to NPR...

Remember those Florida parents whose son was abducted by the state after they refused chemo treatments? The government has now assumed PERMANENT CUSTODY of the child

A Florida judge has officially ruled that the state, and not parents, represents the ultimate authority when it comes to making medical decisions for children.

Noah McAdams, age four, will now be forced by Florida to continue receiving the toxic chemotherapy treatments that we previously reported his parents wanted to cease because they were killing him.

Joshua McAdams and Taylor Bland-Ball, Noah’s parents, believing themselves to be free Americans, had tried to opt for an alternative regimen of cannabis oil, high-density nutrition, and alkalized water for their child. But the state ultimately said no, declaring that they either had to obey the government’s commands or else have little Noah taken from them.

“This year we have no plans to borrow any more on foreign markets, we have fulfilled our program and even overfulfilled it. Next year, we’ll see. Probably it will be not only in euro but maybe in Chinese yuan,” Siluanov stated.

The first of the two Russian-made helicopter carriers will be laid down next May, with one of them set to be completed by 2027, sources in the ship-building industry told TASS on Thursday. The vessels will reportedly carry up to 10 helicopters each and have large hangar-like well decks to deploy landing craft. The contract for the ships will be signed “in the coming months,” the source said.
