Pick your price: Your blood or your soul

Do you support our killer troops committing genocide in Iraq?

By John Kaminski


What would you do if your brother — or perhaps your son, father, or husband — was charged with murder? With deliberately taking the life of another human being.

For sure, it would be an agonizing decision — making the choice between practicing what you preach about justice, or standing by your devastated family. A choice no one would envy — defend your blood or obey the laws of God and society.

And then, what if it was a particularly bad murder? Say he shot an old woman in the back, and watched her die — all the while preventing medical personnel from tending to her. Maybe she was already wounded and he finished her off. From a helicopter, even.

It sure would be tough to keep your family — your mind, your heart — together in that situation. Who could blame you whatever you decided?

Of course, things are different in the middle of a war, even a completly illegal war based on well-publicized lies like the situation in Iraq.

I mean, it's easy to say your were just following orders. That's what lots of Nazis did in World War II, but they still were put to death in the trials following the war.

I wonder what will happen when and if Americans find themselves in that situation in the near future.

Being in a military situation means everything is different. Innocent civilians always get killed accidentally when the military's involved. Some are accidental, some are deliberate, but mostly we never get to know the difference. Bodies get thrown in holes and are forgotten, except by some of the living who years later wake up screaming in the middle of the night.

Long after the grisly facts become known, sometimes we get a little tardy justice. Mostly we don't. Remember when former Senator Bob Kerrey tried to give back his Vietnam medals, admitting he killed women and children rather than the dangerous enemy gunmen his valor citations described. How did the public react? Hell, we didn't want to hear him. We told him to keep his medals, keep quiet, and forget about the whole thing.

Demonic demagogues like Joseph Farah, Michael Savage and Rush Limbaugh all have recently recommended killing large numbers of innocent Iraqis "to teach them a lesson." The "lesson" being it's not cool to mess with Uncle Sam and mutilate his hired killers, the highly paid mercenaries he hired to assassinate Iraqi intellectuals so when America has that tortured nation sufficiently lobotomized, there will be a minimum of intelligent people around to protest the new "democratic" prison camp that America has created.

The United States and Britain have decided to adopt the Pol Pot theory of social engineering — kill everyone with academic credentials. And when the irate Iraqis decide to strike back at this masterpiece of Israeli-style population control, the U.S. ups the ante on its already-high atrocity level — and bombs a totally defenseless town from the air, no matter who gets killed, and murders all the males under 45. Repeat: murders all the males under 45. That's what's going on right now, my dear American compatriots, in the inferno called Fallujah, Iraq. It's called genocide. No question about it.

This is how your American boys are behaving in a foreign country. Your sons, your husbands, your fathers.

Hey! They were just following orders. Based on lies.

This is what your country is doing to innocent people. Killing them without a second thought, without regard for who they are or what they've done, how many children they might have or how many wonderful things they've done in this life.

Hell, they don't worry about the children because they're killing them, too. Listen to that doctor, forced to set up his clinic in a filthy garage, describe a little boy with a shell of a skull missing its brains. Or the man who was brought to the clinic with burns so bad he will automatically dehydrate to death in 24 hours. How about the boy they threw in the river, and he couldn't swim so he drowned? Or when the fighting first began, the hundred teenagers hooded and kept in the sun, and then shot to death by your beloved Americans boys, one by one.

This was all done by your sons, your husbands, your fathers. Just following orders.

You know, we all ought to be very scared that these killer punks will be coming home soon, all with the taste of blood on their tongues, ready and willing to tell us all about the wonderful experiences they had in Iraq, or at least the ones who don't immediately get sick and die from the radioactive ammunition they had to handle or the poisonous vaccines they had to endure, at least they'll be able to tell us how they fought the War on Terror in Iraq by shooting defenseless women in the back and bombing residential neighborhoods and splattering body parts all over the tan brick walls of Baghdad.

They were scared. It's OK to kill people when you're scared.

This is the kind of behavior approved by Fox news every night, only they don't tell you about this stuff — they tell you about our tough guy president saying "Bring it on", and how the folks back home are cheering about the lives they are throwing away.

Pretending to be brave and patriotic when they plant their own children in the peaceful soil, saying how proud they are that their children gave their lives for an unjust genocide that was based on lies.

America. What a country. A country gone mad.

And this isn't something new, you know. Don't pretend to be surprised. Don't tell me you didn't know this is the kind of stuff we noble Americans do on a regular basis.

It has been going on — in Iraq, anyway, for FIFTEEN years! But hey, in Palestine it has been going on for FIFTY-FIVE years, at least officially (actually it has been much longer).

I haven't heard the phrase Geneva Conventions lately. The last time I heard it was when Rumsfeld complained about Iraqis taking photos of American POWs being a violation of the Geneva Conventions.

The U.S. uses the phrase Geneva Conventions when it's somebody else they can complain about. Americans forget to use the phrase when it pertains to U.S. behavior in Iraq, Afghanistan, Colombia, Lebanon, Palestine, the Philippines, Colombia, Lebanon, Nicaragua, Vietnam or any of a hundred other places all related to Fort Benning, Georgia, where they teach courses on how to violate the Geneva Conventions.

At the end of the first Gulf War in 1991, our famous drug czar Barry McCaffrey supervised the slaughter on the Highway of Death which killed thousands of Iraqi soldiers who had already surrendered. This was noted as an egregious violation of the Geneva Conventions — killing soldiers who were trying to surrender.

But Americans cheered. Sons, husbands, fathers.

Then, for nearly 15 more years, the Americans and the Brits — WITHOUT approval of the United Nations — continued to bomb large parts of Iraq, and in direct violation of the Geneva Conventions, bombed water treatment plants, hospitals and other necessary services (all direct violations of the Geneva Conventions), resulting in the deaths of ONE MILLION Iraqi children from birth defects and childhood diseases that could have been easily cured were it not for the embargo of necessary medicines.

Now, the new Iraqi death toll (various American generals said it wasn't necessary to count Iraqi dead — another endearing American trait) stands at more than 30,000. Ninety percent were innocent civilians.

Obliterated by America's video game weapons, by your sons, your husbands, your fathers.

Worst of all, the whole world now knows America had absolutely no reason to invade Iraq this time around (not that it did before in the era of the April Glaspie sucker punch, either). Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction (just as Scott Ritter, Hans Blix and others said) and Iraq had no connection to al-Qaida (although now reportedly the U.S. is trying to smuggle in WMDs and claim that Saddam had them hidden all the time). No legitimate reason whatsoever to go to war.

The U.S. invasion of Iraq is entirely unjustified, a massive crime against humanity, carried out by your sons, your husbands, your fathers, who murdered innocents on the cynical say-so of the lies our leaders told us, and are still telling us.

And now the opposition presidential candidate, supposedly a war hero himself who only recently found out he was Jewish, says he will continue the same policy of random murders and denial of self-determination should he win the totally-fixed elections of 2004. This means America is destined to be a soulless, killer nation indefinitely into the future. And it's only a matter of time before this kind of thing starts happening here.

Your sons, your husbands, your fathers are murderers. The Geneva Conventions state that when soldiers know their leaders are giving them illegal or immoral orders, it is their duty to disobey them. America used that argument in the post-World War II trials against the Japanese and the Germans, and the whole world damn well better use it against the Americans when it puts America on trial for its illegal genocide against the Iraqis.

Do the world a big favor and think of all these things the next time you hear the Star Spangled Banner, or listen to some pompous ass in a faux military hat say in a drunken stupor, "Support our troops!"

Tip your glass to him, and say, with all sincerity and that American killer smile, "Yes, brother, support our killer troops."

Just don't go to church afterwards. God would puke on you.

War with Iraq - Again?
Introduction and Overview. Reading this first will put the other items in this section into perspective. —Jackie

Hussein Did NOT Gas the Kurds!
New York Times: "The United States Defense Intelligence Agency investigated and produced a classified report, which it circulated within the intelligence community on a need-to-know basis. That study asserted that it was Iranian gas that killed the Kurds, not Iraqi gas."

Zionist Campaign for War with Iraq
In Revisionist Perspective by Paul Grubach
"Why should the U.S. go to war to serve Israeli-Zionist interests? Why should mostly non-Jewish White, Black, and Hispanic Americans — who make up the vast majority of the U.S. armed forces — have to risk their lives for the Jewish state of Israel?"

America's Ultra-Secret Weapon - "dial-a-hurt"
HPMs are man-made lightning bolts crammed into cruise missiles. The Directed Energy Directorate at Kirtland has been studying how to deliver varying but predictable electrical pulses to inflict increasing levels of harm: to deny, degrade, damage or destroy, to use the Pentagon's parlance. HPM engineers call it "dial-a-hurt."

The Mother of All Wars - SHOCK and AWE
"Ullman is ready to use every kind of weapon to create shock and awe. He once said it might be a good idea to use electromagnetic waves that attack peoples' neurological systems, "to control the will and perception of adversaries, by applying a regime of shock and awe. It is about effecting behavior."

Pentagon Eyes Mass Graves (for U.S. Soldiers)
Denver Post: "The bodies of U.S. soldiers killed by chemical or biological weapons in Iraq or future wars may be bulldozed into mass graves and burned to save the lives of surviving troops, under an option being considered by the Pentagon."

View from Baghdad
This following article is the reality that 99% of the world sees about the Iraq situation and the U.S. role. This war is not over oil. It's about ownership and control of Earth's resources. . . this proven technology could provide an ABUNDANCE of cheap, clean energy worldwide, virtually overnight, if it was not ruthlessly suppressed with inventors bankrupted if not murdered.

War - No Matter What!
Dr Richard Perle stunned MPs by insisting a "clean bill of health" from UN chief weapons inspector Hans Blix would not halt America's war machine. Evidence from ONE witness on Saddam Hussein's weapons programme will be enough to trigger a fresh military onslaught, he told an all-party meeting on global security.

Saddam's Bodyguard Warns of Secret Weapons
A source close to Mr. Sharon said, "Sharon intends to shatter the growing anti-war movement. He plans to call all those European leaders who are wavering . . ." Is this the ONE witness Richard Perle needed to trigger a fresh military onslaught?

Seeds of Destruction
What keeps Bush from planting evidence of WMD in Iraq?
Think about it. Bush is willing to lie, cheat and steal in order to forward his agenda to destroy Iraq. To his disappointment, inspectors have found NOTHING thus far except some crated-up, 20 year-old warheads. Hardly evidence of an active program for WMD.

U.S. Demands Iraq Show Cooperation by This Weekend
What can we make of this convoluted and contradictory piece?
The headline says 'this weekend' (2-15/16). In the body of the article we read: "Mr. Bush did not mention Friday as a turning point. Ms. Rice said he had set no deadline for action by the Security Council." Much of what we read in the controlled media is designed to 'shape public opinion' and generate fear and anxiety. Stay close with God in peace and love. —Jackie

U.S. Documents show embrace of Saddam Hussein in early 1980's
From the National Security Archive
"The declassified documents posted today include the briefing materials and diplomatic reporting on two Rumsfeld trips to Baghdad, reports on Iraqi chemical weapons use concurrent with the Reagan administration's decision to support Iraq. . . "

Turkish Parliament Refuses to Accept G.I.'s in Blow to Bush
ANKARA, Turkey, March 1 - The Turkish Parliament today dealt a major setback to the Bush administration's plans for a northern front against Iraq, narrowly rejecting a measure that would have allowed thousands of American combat troops to use the country as a base for an attack.

Bush and 2 Allies Seem Set for War to Depose Hussein
N.Y.Times - 3-17-03
BUSH: "Saddam Hussein can leave the country if he's interested in peace. You see, the decision is his to make, and it's been his to make all along on whether or not there's the use of military."

Bush Planned Iraq Regime Change Before Becoming President
Sunday Herald, United Kingdom, September 15, 2002
"A secret blueprint for US global domination reveals that President Bush and his cabinet were planning a premeditated attack on Iraq to secure 'regime change' even before he took power in January 2001...'This is a blueprint for US world domination -- a new world order of their making. These are the thought processes of fantasist Americans who want to control the world. I am appalled that a British Labour Prime Minister should have got into bed with a crew which has this moral standing.'"

Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces, and Resources for a New Century
Click here to download Adobe Acrobat ReaderWritten in September 2000, before George W. Bush was President, and prior to September 11th, this document is the report the Sunday Herald (U.K.) called, "A blueprint for US global domination." Among other things, the report establishes missions for U.S. military forces to:

  • "defend the American homeland

  • "fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous theatre wars

  • "perform the 'constabulary' duties associated with shaping the security environment in critical regions

  • "transform U.S. forces to exploit the 'revolution in military affairs'"

U.S. Awards Deals for Post-War Iraq
"A USAid spokeswoman said that the companies were chosen because of their proven ability, and that it was a policy to use US companies for projects funded by the American taxpayer." U.S. soldiers will bomb the Iraqis to hell, then the "American taxpayer" will pay, and pay, and pay to rebuild what they destroyed. Except, you can't rebuild or re-animate dead babies and men and women, not even one, nor the half-million Iraqis expected to be murdered. Oh, yes. . . the sanitized war-term for murder now is "collateral damage."

Just Another Staged Baghdad Rally?
They told us that the Iraqis were dancing in the streets, celebrating at the thought of being "liberated." Could it be they lied to us again?

Sham Saddam Scam
An analysis of the allegation that Saddam Hussein was captured.

Saddam Was NOT Captured
"The Pentagon spin machine is trying to dupe us all by telling us that this photo was taken in December. It shows two American soldiers lifting the lid off that elaborate 'spider hole', where they claim they have found Saddam Hussein."

Who Writes Letter(s) to Editors for Soldiers?
Many Soldiers, Same Letter
Newspapers around U.S. get identical missives from Iraq. ". . . appear to be part of a campaign to present a positive picture of the U.S. occupation."

Army to Recall Former Military Members
CNN News 6.29.04
"The Army is preparing to notify about 5,600 retired and discharged soldiers who are not members of the National Guard or Reserve that they will be involuntarily recalled to active duty for possible service in Iraq or Afghanistan. . . "

Thousands of US troops evacuated from Iraq for unexplained medical reasons
September 2003
"At no point in the last six months have the American people been told that for every soldier who has been killed in Iraq, at least another 15 have fallen so ill that they had to be flown back to the United States."
