The Evil of U.S. Aggression against Iraq

The Evil of U.S. Aggression against Iraq | Anti-Exploitation | Scoop.it
By Jacob G. Hornberger | Future of Freedom Foundation | August 26, 2014 What better confirmation of the manifest failure of the philosophy of foreign interventionism than the renewed U.S. bombing o...
mcc43's insight:

"Indeed, think back to the brutal sanctions that the U.S. government enforced against Iraq for more than ten years. When “Sixty Minutes” asked U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Madelyn Albright whether the deaths of half-a-million Iraqi children from the U.S. sanctions had been “worth it,” she responded that while the choice was a difficult one, the deaths were in fact worth it.

How can those deadly sanctions — indeed, how can such a horribly callous mindset — not be described as anything but evil?

Or think back to the Persian Gulf War, when the Pentagon ordered the destruction of Iraq’s water and sewage treatment plants, knowing that such destruction would bring infectious illnesses in its wake? And it did. That’s what helped kill all those children, given that the sanctions prevented Iraqi officials from repairing those water and sewage treatments plants that the Pentagon had destroyed.

How can such a thing not be described as evil? """

mcc43's insight:

«Le nostre ricerche devono dar luogo ad un profondo discorso sulla responsabilità che coinvolga tutti gli stati moderni, ben consapevoli delle conseguenze a lungo termine delle guerre moderne giustificate come umanitarie», spiega Paola Manduca, genetista dell’Università di Genova, membro del gruppo di ricerca New Weapons, commissione indipendente di scienziati che studia l’impiego delle armi non convenzionali ed i loro effetti di medio–lungo periodo sui residenti delle zone di guerra.

I loro recenti studi, condotti in particolare in Iraq nella zona di Falluja, hanno dimostrato inequivocabilmente che con il trascorrere del tempo si è manifestato un aumento del tasso di difetti alla nascita e di aborti spontanei a Falluhja, a partire dal 2003 e che la nascita di bambini con difetti congeniti è aumentata di circa 10 volte dal 2002 e non è in calo nel 2010.

«A Falluja centinaia di bambini nascono con difetti al cuore, allo scheletro, al sistema nervoso – sostiene uno studio scientifico pubblicato nel 2011 dall’International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health – Il tasso di malformazioni nei neonati è di undici volte superiore alla norma e negli ultimi 7 anni ha fatto registrare un incremento spaventoso. Un fenomeno che non è interpretabile se non come dovuto a cause ambientali e che pertanto si riconduce alla persistenza nell’ambiente di contaminanti associati con l’uso di armi durante la guerra».

1)  In late-March 2003, the day before the U.S. invasion,  Bill O'Reilly said, "If the Americans go in and overthrow Saddam Hussein and it's clean, he has nothing, I will apologize to the nation; I will not trust the Bush administration again, all right?"


2) After the fall of Baghdad in April, Joe Scarborough, on MSNBC, said, "I'm waiting to hear the words 'I was wrong' from some of the world's most elite journalists, politicians, and Hollywood types."

Terrorism with a "Human Face": The History of America's Death Squads

Terrorism with a "Human Face": The History of America's Death Squads | Anti-Exploitation | Scoop.it
What are the historical roots of US-NATO's Covert War on Syria? The recruitment of death squads is part of a well established US military-intelligence agenda. There is a long and gruesome history o...
mcc43's insight:

Washington and its allies replicated in Syria the essential features of the “Iraq Salvador Option”, leading to the creation of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and its various terrorist factions including the Al Qaeda affiliated Al Nusra brigades.

While the creation of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) was announced in June 2011, the recruitment and training of foreign mercenaries was initiated at a much an earlier period.

In many regards, the Free Syrian Army is a smokescreen. It is upheld by the Western media as abona fide military entity established as a result of mass defections from government forces.  The number of defectors, however, was neither significant nor sufficient to establish a coherent military structure  with command and control functions.

The FSA  is not a professional  military entity, rather it is a loose network of separate terrorist brigades, which in turn are made up of numerous paramilitary cells operating in different parts of the country.

Each of these terrorist organizations operates independently. The FSA does not effectively exercise command and control functions including liaison with these diverse paramilitary entities. The latter are controlled by US-NATO sponsored special forces and intelligence operatives which are embedded within the ranks of selected terrorist formations.

These (highly trained) Special forces on the ground (many of whom are employees of private security companies) are routinely in contact with US-NATO and allied military/intelligence command units (including Turkey). These embedded Special Forces are, no doubt, also involved in the carefully planned bomb attacks directed against government buildings, military compounds, etc.

The death squads are mercenaries trained and recruited by the US, NATO, its Persian Gulf GCC allies as well as Turkey.  They are overseen by allied special forces (including British SAS and French Parachutistes), and private security companies on contract to NATO and the Pentagon. In this regard, reports confirm the arrest by the Syrian government of some 200-300 private security company employees who had integrated rebel ranks.

Siria, chimica ribelle (Veleni per la mente)

mcc43's insight:

La sera del 5 maggio è arrivata la notizia, i ribelli siriani usano armi chimiche. A darla ai microfoni della Radio Svizzera Italiana è stata Carla Del Ponte, ex procuratore capo del Tribunale Penale Internazionale per la ex Jugoslavia e oggi della commissione Onu sulla Siria. E anche se l’Onu cerca di zittire la cosa, Carla Del Ponte accusa, in Siria non ci sono buoni e cattivi. È quello che pensiamo da tempo anche noi, tanto che abbiamo deciso di mostrarvi un video dei ribelli siriani dove si vede uno di loro armeggiare fra sostanze chimiche e fare esperimenti mortali su conigli, quindi uno con i jihadisti di Jabhat al Nusra, quelli che in Siria hanno fermato giornalisti italiani, mentre assaltano un villaggio, facendo ostaggi e distruggendo ogni cosa. Video crudi, ma è giusto mostrare l’altra faccia della crisi siriana, quella che molti non vogliono far vedere e che ora faticano a nascondere.

 

Un sondaggio del Pew Research Center di Washington ha rivelato che il cinquanta per cento degli americani non sa dov’è la Siria. Fra loro spiccano i democratici, quelli che votano per Barack Obama e che ora sperano attacchi la Siria perché il presidente siriano Bashar al Assad “usa armi chimiche”.
