Did "We" REALLY WIN in Iraq????

The soldiers of the US 4th "Stryker" Brigade, high on synthetic Bravado, shouted "We won", "It's over!!" Is "it" REALLY?? Now it's time to once again pour out the same stale pablum for the kids in our country, who are destined to lose arms and legs, as well as a few other body parts in the same misguided adventure for our iron Fatherland, and we are also forgetting Iraq and her people. Foreign wars lead to a complete polarization of decent discourse. First of all, there are still 50,000 American military personnel in Iraq, and the majority are still combat troops, but now they are called something else: The major units still in Iraq will no longer be called "brigade combat teams" but will instead be "advisory and assistance brigades". When I served as "advisory team leader" in Vietnam, I did much of my "advising" with the bullets from my rifle, and our remaining "enemies" were usually kind enough to accept my well-meant advice, though on a few occasions they decided to return "their" kind reminder that this was, after all, their country, by responding with AK-47's and B-40 rockets. My advice to our valiant warriors is to keep their weapons handy, and respond to the other side's advice with their own. Anyways, that is my honest opinion, and I'm stuck with it!


What You're Not Supposed to Know about WAR

Even just, defensive wars inevitably empower the state far beyond anything any strict constructionist would approve of. War means central planning, heavy taxation, fascist or socialist economics, attacks on free speech and other civil liberties, and the destruction of private enterprise, which provides the durable structure of all solidly based economic systems, while a war 'economy' robs the essential resources for all viable economic enterprises. The alternative means central planning, heavy taxation, fascist or socialist economics, attacks on free speech or other civil liberties, and the destruction of private enterprise. "We" must advocate and accept Big Govern- ment for the "duration" - for neither an offensive nor a defensive war can be waged except with a totalitarian bureaucracy within our economy. In reality, antiwar factors are only a threat to the military, industrial, and congressional complex, which profits from war, but can not conceivably exist without starving the general public.

CIA's Duane 'Dewey' Clarridge: "We'll intervene whenever WE decide"

Our CIA, the "Central Intelligence Agency" has warned us foolish citizens who pay our taxes, and wonder why the whole world hates us. In am interview with John Pilger, for "The War Against Democracy" Clarridge, who is presently advising CIA assassination efforts in Pakistan, wonders why many Americans find it difficult to accept that mass US assassinations throughout the Muslim world, a policy both illegal and never seriously debated by Congress or the American people. As General McChrystal suggests, conducting assassination operations throughout the 1.3 billion-strong Muslim world will inevitably increase the murder of civilians, and thus create exponentially more "enemies", posing a major long-term threat to US national security, thereby endangering us all. The US has conducted assassinations in the "Third World" for decades, but the actual killing-though directed and financed by the CIA has been left to local paramilitary and police forces. This has now changed dramatically: Through greatly expanded US military Special Operations Teams, US drone strikes and private espionage networks run by former CIA assassins and torturers. Most significant is the expanding geographic scope of our killing. While CENTCOM Commander from October 2008 until July 2010, General Petraeus received secret and unprecedented permission to unilaterally engage in operations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Iran, former Russian Republics, Yemen, Somalia, Saudi Arabia, Kenya, the Horn of Africa, and wherever else he deemed necessary.

We-and that is ALL Americans, have left Iraq as a Total Disaster

Two of our recent "presidents" George "W" and Obama have followed the path of Adolf Hitler, in making unprovoked attacks against nations that have done us no harm! Take the sorry and despicable occupation of Iraq. Our occupation more than doubled poverty, and sickness, leaving that country as a total disaster. George W tried to connect Iraq to the destruction of the several buildings of our world trade center. As a former US Army Captain, and Advisory Team Leader in two of the hottest combat areas of Vietnam (The "Iron Triangle", near Saigon, and Ngo Trang, a few miles north of Kontum), after I served in combat for the 1/10 Cavalry Squadron between Pleiku and Banmethuot, where dodging enemy Ak-47 bullets had become a necessary hobby. But I digress: Iraq had nothing to do with the destruction of our World Trade Center buildings, and the loss of American lives, as I have so amply demonstrated in other postings on this site. If you will order the DVD "911 Mysteries, Part 1, Demolitions, at www.911mysteries.com", you will know the truth, and the truth shall make you free! But I digress: Please read the article by Adil E. Shamoo, on Foreign Policy in Focus. In UN-HABITAT, an agency of the United Nations, you will find a 218-page report entitled State of the World's Cities, 2010-2011. It is full of statistics, defining slum dwellers as those living in urban centers without "durable structures to protect them from climate, sufficient living area, sufficient access to water, access to sanitation facilities, and freedom from eviction. Almost intentionally hidden is one shocking fact about urban Iraqi populations. For the past few decades, prior to the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, the percentage of the urban population living in slums in Iraq hovered just below 20%. Today, that percentage has risen to 53%. There is an old proverb which says: "Treason never prospers, but for one reason: When treason prospers, none dare call it treason".


Mossad- The Israeli Connection to 911

According to research by Christopher Bollyn, US investigators and our controlled media have ignored a preponderance of evidence pointing to Israel's intelligence agency, the Mossad, was involved in the terror attacks of 9/11. During, and right after the morning of the unprovoked attack against America, the Mossad began to plant "false flags" to blame so-called Arab terrorists and mold public opinion to support the pre-planned "war on terror." Shortly after the destruction of the twin towers, radio news reports described five "Middle Eastern men" being arrested in New Jersey after having been seen videotaping and celebrating the explosive "collapse" of the WTC. These men, from a phony moving company in Weehawken, NJ turned out to be agents of Israeli military intelligence, Mossad. Furthermore, their "moving van" tested positive for explosives. Dominic Suter, the Israeli owner of "Urban Moving Systems", the phony "moving company", fled in haste, or was allowed to escape to Israel before FBI agents could interrogate him. The Israeli agents were later returned to Israel on minor visa violations. The Assistant Attorney General in charge of criminal investigations at the time was Michael Chertoff, who is thought to be an Israeli national. It looks as though the fox was guarding our chicken coup! On September 12, 2001, the Internet edition of the Jerusalem Post reported: "The Israeli Foreign ministry has collected the names of 4,000 Israelis believed to have been in the areas of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon at the time of the attack, yet only one Israeli was killed at the WTC and two were reportedly killed on the "hijacked" aircraft. (There must have been a miracle) Speechwriters for President George W. Bush grossly inflated the number of Israeli dead to 130 in his address to a joint session of Congress on September 20, 2001.
And then, we went to war, to avenge the so-called Israeli dead.
