АгораБеоград: Why Was Osama Bin Laden Killed
АгораБеоград: Why Was Osama Bin Laden Killed
Why The Mainstreamists Will Never Guess/Tell – Why
& How is That a Challenge to You & 9/11 Truthseekers
[ btw What is Missing from Hillary Clinton Nomination ]
Seymour Hersh, great US journalist, first distinguished for uncovering the Mi Lai massacre in Vietnam (1968), [just as gen. Collin Powell distinguished & launched his career by covering up the same massacre]1 recently confirmed from multiple insider sources that Bin Laden was never meant to be apprehended. Assassinating Bin Laden was the Washington plan from the beginning.
Hersh in his text “The Killing of Osama bin Laden”2 recounts the story of a “retired senior intelligence official”:
“Bin Laden was very ill…” ‘The truth is that bin Laden was an invalid, but we cannot say that,’ the retired official said.
‘“You mean you guys shot a cripple? Who was about to grab his AK-47?”’
“’It was clearly and absolutely a premeditated murder.’”
“A former Seal commander, who has led and participated in dozens of similar missions over the past decade, assured me that ‘we were not going to keep bin Laden alive – to allow the terrorist to live. By law, we know what we’re doing inside Pakistan is a homicide. We’ve come to grips with that. Each one of us, when we do these missions, say to ourselves, “Let’s face it. We’re going to commit a murder.”’”3
Yet we still wait for the answer why Bin Laden had to be assassinated, why taking him into custody was never the option.
Analysing, debating and answering these questions is important, not for the sake of Bin Laden, but for the sake of everyone else.
Since the range and significance of the analysis necessary for the task go far beyond Bin Laden himself, and require some thinking & minimal moral integrity, there is no point in waiting for the “mainstream” to do the job for us. They never will. They cannot do it or dare not say – why Osama Bin Laden was killed?
So let us think & debate – why…?
Was it all
“The Revenge Killing of Osama Bin Laden”
as Chomsky compressed it in his title,4 or, as the New York Post would rejoice somewhat less academically…
the “US nails the bastard”,
celebrating “Vengeance at last!” – at pages 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9.
Chomsky, far from The New York Post planet, wrote:
“The roots of revenge killing are deep. In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, the American desire for vengeance displaced concern for law and security.”
Then he quotes the conclusion of “veteran Middle East and military correspondent Yochi Dreazen and colleagues”, that:
“For many at the Pentagon and the CIA who had spent nearly a decade hunting bin Laden, killing the militant was a necessary and justified act of vengeance.”5
And they could not be more wrong.
After a decade of hunt, you don’t just finish him off (Bin Laden), letting soldiers and agents express their feelings on the matter.
No trial! Hurray! 6
Government apparatus of an empire is enormous.
Apparatus of the empire with global appetites – is gargantuan. And it is a pyramid. The decision was made at the top. CIA agents & the Pentagon generals could have been rabidly in favour of revenge, but the order was cold, calculated, premeditated and from the top. Not a whim of an individual, but a rational decision of the highest level of the administration.
Obama & the crew oversaw the entire operation from…
Top at – the bottom. The White House underground (seriously) 7
…the Presidential Bunker.
It’s not that the top US officials would have anything against the revenge,
but the mystery is why they abstained from incomparably harsher revenge
– that of parading Bin Laden shackled to New York for a trial.
Question is not why they denied Bin Laden a day at the court,
but why they denied themselves having Bin Laden at the court, why they wasted an opportunity to present themselves as dignified, civilized & superior by putting the villain inferior on trial.
There is much more than vengeance to it.
Killed him… because US would, perhaps, not be able to produce evidence 9/11 was connected to Bin Laden?
What would be the consequences of that?
Bear in mind, June 2002, 8 months after the US invasion of Afghanistan and after “the most intensive investigation in history”, FBI director Robert Mueller admitted to the Senate committee they still had no evidence Bin Laden, nor Al- Qaeda leaders from Afghanistan were responsible for 9/11 attack… rendering US invasion of Afghanistan an aggression for the sake of aggression – certainly nothing to do with justice…
“According to the FBI, then, the bombing was a war crime, an act of aggression, based on mere supposition.”8
And US invasion of Afghanistan took more civilian lives than 9/11 attacks.9
If the US could not produce evidence Bin Laden was responsible for the crime of 9/11, yet used his unproven guilt for the crime much greater – that of US invasion on Afghanistan – then any US administration would have plenty of reasons just to assassinate Bin Laden and leave the US aggression on Afghanistan far from any court.
Taliban did not refuse to extradite Bin Laden,
only asked US to provide evidence (which they had the right to demand),
but it is the US administration and the Congress who refused to provide evidence, they, by the way, did not have anyway.
The Congress was 100%-1 in favour of war10 = aggression on Afghanistan, rather than respect the UN Charter and international law…
Bush II administration & both “democrats” & “republicans” opted for war with a perspective that 2.5 million people would be added to the 5 million already on a verge of starvation…
All humanitarian agencies protested against the invasion estimating that – “Bombing posed a “grave risk” of starvation for millions of people.”11
Such were the perspectives of war when senators and representatives, all but one, voted the war, while they had no evidence even of Bin Laden’s guilt, let alone of the sovereign country of Afghanistan they invaded, or the entire people of Afghanistan, poor, innocent and punished.
Preparation for 9/11 terrorist act took place in Germany & USA…
Idea for 9/11 just as easily might have been hatched in Germany or France…
Money came from Saudi Arabia…
Terrorists… of 19 of them, fifteen came from – Saudi Arabia, staunch US ally…
But the rulers of the Empire decided Afghanistan had to pay…
So it’s not only about what US weapons sow in Afghanistan…
(From cheerleaders(?!) of America(?!!)…)
Caught in US(!) fire while they were looking for fire-wood… in Afghanistan(!)
[Guess who is the major victim on the picture above, according to CNN = Michael Holmes of
CNN: “It does a lot of damage to the U.S. mission(?) in Afghanistan.
You don’t win hearts and minds that way.”] 12
…nor only about what US (& allied) soldiers did on the ground…
Posing after they shot the boy like a game, in a game
Gul Muddin, age 15, dead, Afghanistan13
But who sent them there…
No need for UN to wage a war (of aggression) – US Congress
& what justice they deserve
if their whys for the aggression on Afghanistan would sink at Bin Laden’s trial.
There are plenty of facts that would be more than embarrassing to the
US establishment at the court.
And there is something else…
John Pilger asked, in an interview for the Pasatiempo magazine, cancelled, probably because he asked:
“Why wasn’t bin Laden brought back to the U.S. and put on trial?
Isn’t that the way true democracies behave?
Perhaps the reason was that he might have thrown light on his earlier employment by the CIA and Britain’s MI6.”14
During the Bin Laden trial it could appear that the US governments in general, were allies with him in numerous crimes around the world…
Two hijackers of the 9/11 planes (Khalid al-Mihdar & Nawaf al-Hazmi) were jihadist warriors in Bosnia, like Khalid Sheikh Muhammad, senior Al Qaeda operative who participated in planning the 9/11 attack. War in Bosnia actually qualified them for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It was a period of cutting heads in Bosnia, remembers wife (Regina Kreis) of one of those jihadists (Reda Seyam),15 who were all right then, in the ‘90s, cutting heads of common enemy (Serbs) with tacit approval of US administration & policy. And she’s not speaking poetically.
Allied crimes are no crimes
Saudi mujahid holding head of Serb Blagoje Blagojevich16
So there are plenty of common Al Qaeda-Washington causes & cases around the world, like in Libya and Syria nowadays…
Yet, it is not particularly likely that US prosecutors would charge Bin Laden with the crimes of joined CIA/Al-Qaeda operations, since they don’t mind CIA crimes anyway.
CIA crimes are – extrajudicial, that’s beyond and above the law, any law.
Besides, Bin Laden would hardly brag about his cooperation with US at his final hour. Knowing he could not escape the death sentence, he would at least try not to disappoint his fans around the world.
Nevertheless, Bin Laden might have threatened the US before the trial:
“Listen USA, we were pals so many times in so many crimes…
If I go down, you go down.”
So he had to – go down…
Just in case Osama would be less embarrassed with the old love, than the CIA/USA/Zbigniews… are.
But there must be some other reason for extrajudicial killing of Bin Laden.
Too evil to deserve a day at the court of law?
“The one thing I didn’t lose sleep over was the possibility of taking Bin Laden out. Justice was done, and I think that anyone who would question that the perpetrator of mass murder on American soil [?19] didn’t deserve what he got needs to have their head examined.”20
Upon examining our heads, on advice of Mr. President, we detect there something called – knowledge.
So we know, for example…
His task was to organize mass deportation of Jews from all over Europe to the extermination camps of the WWII.
Fifteen years after the war, Mossad agents tracked him down in Argentina and captured him. It was infinitely easier to have him shot on the spot, but instead, he was brought to the court half a world away, from Argentina to Jerusalem.
He was guilty as hell, why bother giving him a day at the court, something no one in the Nazi death machinery ever granted to the Jews?
Why Israel brought Eichmann to the court?
Why bring the evildoer to – the justice?
(Well, isn’t that the whole point of the court? You don’t prosecute the innocent.)
First of all, if anyone thinks punishment is priority, Eichmann would not escape deserved punishment anyway.
Nazi general executed – after a trial
because he executed US soldiers – without a trial21
The purpose of the Eichmann trial was to demonstrate all the key elements of the crime,
to establish, prove and demonstrate the relevant truth beyond any doubt,
to confront the criminal with the full truth of his crime, and all the consequences of his actions,
to let the facts force him confess the facts,
to show that he cannot disprove a single fact of the crime of genocide, nor of the role he played in it…
Purpose of the trial for the worst of evildoers is to establish, prove and record the truth about the crime, the criminal and the victims, irrefutably, to everyone and forever.
The greater the crime – the more important it is to bring the criminal to the trial.
Necessity of a trial is all the greater if the crime is partly founded on some monstrous ideology with many (potential) followers.
Criminal ideologies are designed to be alluring.
It is therefore necessary to tear down all the propaganda layers and covers of criminal ideology… to destroy its attractiveness, its magnetism.
That is another good service trial can provide, but assassination most certainly would not.
Priority of the trial to a mass murderer is not the criminal, nor even the punishment, but the victims, the innocent of the past, and the innocent of the future. And they need truth be told.
No one can hail Eichmann as a martyr, or a genius, or a brave and loyal officer… nor his mission as just or reasonable.
Hundreds of hours of Eichmann trial are placed on the internet, for everyone to see the monstrosity of the criminal and the crime, monstrosity of his organization, whole machinery of the state and their ideology…
Picture & sound of having the highest Nazi officer at the court would save our posterity from:
idolizing those sort of criminals,
glorifying Nazi history
or from straying away on similar paths of crime…
We can see & hear the victims, survivors of the holocaust, witnesses.
We can see & hear both sides, face to face,
Victims facing Exterminator
and hear the truth displayed but never challenged by the highest Nazi officer.
We have the truth about the full scope of the holocaust & in every conceivable detail confirmed implicitly & explicitly, in documents presented, testimonies of the witnesses & in the testimony of Adolf Eichmann at the trial.
Jews had nothing to be ashamed or afraid of from the Eichmann trial.
People of innocent victims had all the reasons of the world to seek and demand the whole truth of their fate be heard, not hidden,
and to demand the truth, the whole truth of the crimes committed against them be established, proved and presented, not hidden.
Milton Fruchtman’s (standing) crew
In charge of spreading the truth worldwide23
All these aspects of the Eichmann trial were denied to the victims of Bin Laden by his assassination.
Would the people celebrate that?
No trial! No trial?!
Would they really chant…
Chanting “U-S-A!” for US soldiers shot the trial dead 24
…”U-S-A!” if the mainstreamists ever raised these questions about the trial?
Who would dare tell them…
(Zivia Lubetkin, Moshe Bahir Shkalek,
Yehiel Dinur Katzetnik,
Rivka Kuper, Abba Kovner)
(Yehiel Dinur collapsed after testifying)25
… to burn their testimonies about him…
Holocaust is the Greek word, meaning burnt sacrifice (ὁλόκαυστος holókaustos: hólos, “whole”, kaustós, “burnt”)… stands for extermination of the Jews in fascist Europe because the bodies of the gassed & slaughtered Jews were burned so no trace of their life or death remains…
That was the last Nazi endeavour & crime – destroying all the signs of existence & fate of the Jews.
Destroying the records of the Eichmann trial would be
– continuation of the Holocaust.
Shooting Eichmann on the spot instead of bringing him to the trial would be
– continuation of the Holocaust.
If Russians caught Hitler alive would they just shoot him right away?
Of course not.
After Hitler’s minions slaughtered more than 20 million Russians, any Russian soldier would sacrifice his life to catch & keep Hitler alive for the trial.
They want truth to be told about the greatest crimes and suffering in history.
Nazis, on the other hand, from the lowest of the low ranks all the way down to der Führer, would prefer Führer’s death to his trial. That is why der Führer took the poison & Nazis covered what’s left of him.
Avoiding the trial at all costs, to avoid facing the truth & justice superior at the court – is the last wish & effort of the Nazis.
Only trial can strip the arch-criminal leader from the power to mesmerize the young, easily impressed, lost souls…
Supreme proponents of criminal ideology, aware of the power of trial, would do anything to protect their dark legacy from the lights of court, so they could continue poisoning souls long after they are gone.
This is elementary knowledge [ironically, about the law] we came across upon our head examination, and on your request Mr. President of USA, Mr. professor of constitutional law.
Your education, Mr. President of USA, including Harvard bits, specifically designed to teach you the name of the favourite dog of the second wife or third lover of the twenty third predecessor of yours, left you having no clue Red Army & not your uncle of the US army,26 liberated Auschwitz.
US soldier, perhaps Obama’s uncle, to the left
This means you have little knowledge of the death camps & Holocaust, that you have mixed your East & West, Western Europe and Western (allied) armies probably stretching to Kamchatka on your map…
But it was never about the knowledge of US presidents.
Imperialism comes not from the miserable education of the ruling anti-elites, but from their colossal… morality.27
Yet people are the ultimate mystery here. Haven’t they noticed that their rulers have stolen the 9/11 trial from them?
And no one asks – why?
Since the victims of 9/11 in Twin Towers & airplanes were innocent,
their families, friends, rescue workers and every sane person in the world would want the full truth about the crime be established, proved and recorded for eternity.
If the victims of 9/11 & those who care for them would not be ashamed nor afraid of the truth – who was?
Criminal would be punished. He would not escape the just punishment.
But the full truth of 9/11 and of all Bin Laden’s crimes had to be established and proved first.
(Whole truth would include chopped off heads Al Qaeda, whatever their label, slaughtered in Afghanistan, Bosnia and other places under the aegis of US & US allies28)
Isn’t confronting the accused criminal at the court with the full truth of his crime
also a part of the just punishment?
Bin Laden would be punished, and we would know exactly – why.
Who could be against that?
Obviously, those who deliberated & ordered the assassination.
And we should gladly have content of their brains subjected to interrogation or at least cross-examination.
It’s not that the people who sought Bin Laden’s trial respect his life, Mr. President of USA,
but that the assassination of Bin Laden was an act of disrespect, of utter contempt for the lives of Bin Laden’s victims, and that is your.. virtue.
Court trial, not physical execution, is the most important part of the punishment.
By assassinating Bin Laden the rulers of the US reduced his punishment,
and they did it precisely & exactly to avoid putting him on trial.
Bin Laden was not killed because he was a big calibre criminal.
Something infinitely more sinister than his sins was at play.
They could survive some of it, but the whole truth was indigestible to the rulers of the Empire.
What was this dangerous truth they were so eager to conceal by assassinating Bin Laden?
When Bush II after 9/11 claimed the terrorists attacked US because they hate our freedom & opportunity, unshakable followers of the Washington line, like the New York Times, only broadened the wise thought of Big Boss:
he terrorists hate our freedom, tolerance, prosperity, religious pluralism and universal suffrage.” 29
[…habeas corpus, Miranda rights, & our right to torture prisoners, truth, the whole truth & nothing but the truth… we might add]
How mature of them.
(Safest thinking is to think the Big Boss’s thoughts.)
Imagine, then, a suicide bomber according the Bush York Times psycho profiling:
”I’ll gladly die today because I can’t stand how free, tolerant, disgustingly pluralistic with numerous opportunities and universal suffrage you are…”
Bin Laden could have challenged the NYTime-ish brains at the court easily:
– “Why, then, we never attacked Sweden?”30
(He actually said that)
Bin Laden might have proceeded to say, for example – “We attacked you because you have murdered countless children of Iraq by sanctions & uranium, invasion & occupation, and because you would not respond to anything but your kind of violence, you would never stop unless stopped by a greater force.”
His lawyers might have shown the evidence that:
many of the suicide bombers have seen innocent victims of western imperialism;
and realized that suffering of the innocent of their people provokes no human response from western empires,
and that the course of western imperialism never changes.
Bin Laden might have added…
– Remember the children of Iraq.
You have put to great suffering & death hundreds of thousands of children of Iraq.
Because an ampoule like this…
PowellPoint © (misre)presentation
could kill many…
– proclaimed the revered US general in a PowellPoint © presentation to the world, six weeks before his army went to kill many.31
If that is you principle Mr. US general, you should have demanded self-destruction of your army before you even considered attacking Iraq… because you have more such ampoules than any other nation in the world.
If your fear of Iraqi WMD gave you the right to bomb Iraq,
what right people of Iraq and Vietnam had, fearing your WMD?
Whose fear was greater?
Whose fear was justified?
Whose fear was fake?
Continuing to terrify & bully the world into aggression against Iraq, you have PowellPointed © to a building which in April 2002 had no roof, but a year later…
the roof was there, so it’s more difficult for your satellites to see what’s under the roof…
If that is your principle Mr. US general, you should have commanded destruction of your army, your country & your home, before you ever considered attacking Iraq – because, there are so many roofed buildings in USA, including your own, making it hard for your satellites to see what’s under.32
You forgot to tell then, that under those dangerous roofs in Iraq there were your agents & inspectors…
And your cameras monitoring whatever you suspect…33
[You don’t give a damn if your victims are innocent, but you’ll double-check to make sure they will be defenceless when the time of your attack strikes. Perhaps a habit you’ve cherished since the time of exterminating native nations.]
You could have sent your agents & inspectors under any roof that terrified you, anywhere in Iraq, anytime.
And you did that.
Not only that, but you could have bombed at wish, whatever scared you the most in Iraq…
Not only that, but you have bombed whatever pleased you to bomb in Iraq…
US skulls & bones over Iraq
Your pilots played video games, shooting shepherds, kids, like a game…35
You called that “no-fly zone”.
It was illegal,36 but you carried it all the way through thirteen years of sanctions…
You have burned the people & flocks of sheep, because there was nothing else for you to destroy…
Iraq dismantled & destroyed the WMD back in 1991.
Even UN inspectors confirmed that in 1995.37
In 1996, Madeleine Albright proclaims death of half a million Iraqi children due US/UK sanctions is…
– worth it.38
That is half way through the sanctions.
But we even know why…
you invented the danger of Iraqi WMD.
Back in 1990 before the US went to war with Iraq, majority of Americans preferred negotiated withdrawal to war. 39
Hill & Knowlton propaganda lie about Iraqi soldiers tossing babies from incubators was not enough to manipulate Americans in support for a war against Iraq.40
Finally, in November 1990 polls, you have found a key to whip up support for the US crimes against Iraq:
“If Saddam Hussein develops nuclear weapons, would that be sufficient cause for military intervention?”
Up to 70% Americans said “yes”.41
And you grabbed the line, you grabbed the lie that Iraq has or will acquire nuclear weapons any minute, besides, Saddam is Hitler…
Later polls confirmed – you better keep the line, keep lying about Iraqi WMD if you want to extend the genocidal sanctions, or embark on invasion and start occupation…42
And what if inspectors proved in UN and against US obstruction, that there was no WMD in Iraq?
“We’ll murder your children anyway”
…Because you do not agree that murderous sanctions,
formally put against Iraq because of Iraqi WMD,
should be lifted when proved there was no Iraqi WMD.43
So you would murder Iraqi children no matter what.
And of course you knew there was no WMD left in Iraq.
All the mainstream knew.
You had journalists with the weapons inspection tracking all the spots US & UK “feared” in Iraq before the 2003 invasion.44
One of them…
[Charles Hanley of Associated Press] wrote:
“There are no smoking guns in more than 400 inspections.”
No evidence of Iraqi WMD, he witnessed.
So the printed trail remains public to this day, that The New York Times, CNN, and all the mainstream propagators were just a phone call away from a true journalist or inspectors on the ground who established and proved that there was no Iraqi WMD.
It was the most important phone call journalists would make before the war, but mainstream[-ists] on a warpath had to avoid.45
If they [the mainstreamists] were eager to bomb a country based on allegations of WMD they could at least show some enthusiasm in joining the inspection, just to prove their point.
Besides, weapons inspection report was available on the internet to the entire world, including the US mainstream.46
They all knew.
“Democrats” voted for the 2003 US aggression against Iraq, but later, when national enthusiasm for war dropped, claimed
they were fooled by a greater fool…
…lied by a greater liar.
But they all knew.
Scott Ritter, UN Chief Weapons Inspector in Iraq (1991-1998), witnessed:
“…Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. She seeks the office of the presidency. I beg to call her as a witness, and ask her the briefings she received. She has claimed over and over again that she had no basis upon which to judge the veracity of the president’s statements.
She is a liar.
I briefed her staff personally. I sought to brief her personally on this issue.
I call her a liar the same way I call Senator John Kerry a liar. I briefed him in person.
I spend a lot of time in Washington DC briefing senators and representatives on the issue of Iraq’s WMD program. It was a truth they found inconsistent with their political future.”47
So you all knew, and you all lied…
Then you unleashed US WMD in Iraq…
Guernica of Iraq… Collin Powell production48
…based on your lies of non-extant Iraqi WMD…
You could have destroyed Iraq 1000 times over with conventional weapons…
But you fired uranium…
Knowing full well the consequences [of radioactive weapons]…
“It’s worth it“49
“It’s worth it” – Madeleine Albright said…
And you honour, celebrate, pay, award…
…and vote such people…
You never had to drill deep for the truth about Iraq…
It was all because oil of the [Middle] East is the “stupendous source of strategic power” for your West, and “one of the greatest material prizes in world history” as your internal planers of external [US] imperialism have noted back in 1945 [State Dept.50]. In words of my dear friend & ally, Zbigniew Brzezinski, control over Middle East oil gives US “critical leverage on the European and Asian economies…”51
And why do you need that for?
Empire aims at…
“For America, the chief geopolitical prize is Eurasia…
A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the world’s three most advanced and economically productive regions.
A mere glance at the map also suggests that
control over Eurasia would almost automatically entail Africa’s subordination…”52
etc… Then he babbles about Oceania… & so forth…
Let me break it down for you:
- Eurasia, that’s two continents merged – is your biggest geopolitical prize. Prize.
- If you succeed controlling & dominating your chief prize, Africa will automatically subordinate to – you.
- Australia nothing but an island of Oceania, all peanuts, in your ocean.
- And you are – America. There’s no dilemma who’s the boss of the continent labelled after you (you think).
This geo-pathology flaunted under appropriate title
– “The Grand Chessboard : American Primacy and its Geostrategic Imperatives”…
You have to read Mein Kampf to find stuff like this – matching morality and wisdom, even the pompous style.
Zbiggie wrote it, and besides being my dearest friend, he’s long-time favourite pupil of the rulers, and advisor & planner for both democrats & republicans.
August 2007, Hillary Clinton pressed Iraqi parliament to dump their prime minister because he failed to honour particular benchmarks made by USA.
Guess what the benchmarks were…
US [c(r)ooked] law for Iraqi oil would be just fine, thank you
– Iraqis failed to pass the oil law Hillary would love.53
If you wonder what inspires her humanity towards people of Iraq…
It is good to know that of those aiming at presidential elections 2008, Hillary Clinton was (legally) greased with second biggest flow of oil industry money.
(McCain was first, Obama third, at the time)54
When Bush II threatened “surge” of US military “presence” in Iraq would succeed, he explained that it is because this “surge” would force Iraqi government fulfil the [White House] benchmarks.
What are the White House benchmarks for the people of Iraq?
They must enact the hydrocarbons law to promote investment, national unity and reconciliation.55
“Hydrocarbons”, in deserts of Iraq? – you are not talking about sandwiches. Simply, your Christianity boils down to calling fossil fuels – hydrocarbons. If you have some additional ethics, it sure as hell escaped people of Iraq. Besides, it sounds bad – US bullies Iraq to pass the oil laws. We don’t want to make the plunder too obvious, do we?
“Promoting investment” – enough said.
People of Iraq have the oil but no papers to prove it’s theirs.
Luckily you print the papers, infinite amounts, proving, by the power of free market & enslaved people, that Iraqi oil belongs to – you.
Selling the priceless Iraqi oil for worthless US papers is called – investment.
And what if the Iraqis are slow to “promote investment”?
Then they are not “promoting national unity”, meaning
= “We’ll tear your country to shreds if you don’t promote the “investment”!”
And no, you were not defending Kuwait (or anyone) from Saddam Hitler.
If you cared for Kuwait you would have advised them against stealing the oil from Iraq.
You would not encourage Kuwait never to back off from stealing Iraqi oil, nor Saddam Hitler the ally, soon to become prey only, behind the closed doors, to solve the matter militarily, saying…
April Glaspie, US ambassador to Iraq, 8 days prior to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait56
…that you don’t take any position in the Arab-Arab affairs…
And most certainly you would not encourage Saddam Hitler publicly, through State Department mouthpiece [Margaret Tutwiler] 6 days prior to Saddam’s invasion of Kuwait (August 2, 1990), promising:
US. State Dept.: GO AHEAD, INVADE KUWAIT, WE DON’T GIVE A DAMN
“There are no special defence or security commitments to Kuwait.” 57
You did this, because Saddam Hitler knew he cannot simply trust the US ambassador [US ambassador in general & April Glaspie in particular] behind the closed doors. He needed public reassurances that you don’t give a damn about the Kuwait. And you gave your word of – your honour.
And Saddam Hitler was clever enough to trust you.
If you cared for Kuwait, you would have switched the timing of your proclamations,
you would have stated publicly before the invasion – whoever invades = Hitler.
This would protect the Kuwait and for free.
Instead, you publicly invited invasion and waited invasion to “realize” & proclaim you have all the military commitments in the world to Kuwait, and your liebling Saddam suddenly became – Hitler.
And no, you were not defending Kuwaiti babies.
If you cared for babies of Kuwait, you would never have murdered million Iraqi children (they’re the same people British Empire divided [them] to control their oil)… nor Vietnamese… neither any… but you have murdered many. If you cared for any babies, you would have introduced the universal healthcare back home, instead of sucking profit from the sick & dying & helpless & poor & young. If you cared for the people you would have healthcared for your people instead of profitcaring for yourselves.
Secondly, Kuwaiti babies you defended by war (& uranium) – you had to invent…
Daughter of Kuwaiti ambassador to US… telling Hill & Knowlton story…58
Your biggest propaganda agency invented the story of Iraqi soldiers looting incubators and leaving babies on the cold floor to die…
Nayirah, age 15, daughter of former Kuwaiti minister of oil and, conveniently, ambassador to the US, Sheikh Saud Nasir al-Sabah, was the only witness PRopaganda59 Corp. Hill & Knowlton was able to produce & train to speak & cry about the imaginary Kuwaiti babies tossed to the cold floor to die…
You defended the babies you invented by poisoning hundreds of thousands real ones with uranium…
Yes, Saddam Hitler poisoned the Kurds…
…just as he poisoned Iranians…
Suffocating, soldier of Iran, poisoned by the US ally at the time – Saddam Hitler60
…and he did it all under your protection, with your blessings, weapons, poisons and even military support.
After all, isn’t Saddam Hitler – your & CIA asset, haven’t you hired him to murder true Iraqi patriot…
Abd al-Karim Qasim (premier of Iraq, 1958-1963)
…Abd al-Karim Qasim. What was his sin?
He thought, erroneously, that Iraqi oil belongs to the Iraqis.
(Of course you opted for your murderer – Saddam Hitler.62)
Just as the unforgivable sin…
Mohammad Mossadegh (prime minister of Iran, 1952-1953)
…deadly sin of Mohammad Mossadegh, prime minister of Iran, was his delusion that the oil of Iran belongs to the people of Iran.
Imagine how those two great men and their nations would get along without your empires & democracy exports.
But the CIA organised coup against such thoughts.
We are not allowed to have dreams nor reality you would not control.
You hate democracy you cannot enslave.
And what if two neighbouring Muslim countries nationalize their oil resources?
What would you do if your murderous juggling in the region ends up with both Iran and Iraq having their oil nationalised… You lured your ally, Saddam Hitler, to attack Iran, promising him swift victory.63 It is for such favours mass murderers & criminals would do for you, that you favour them instead of our freedom. You actually hate our freedom, it’s not the other way around. So you ignited the war to burn, to exhaust and enslave whoever survives your schemes…
And it was all so you could sell weapons (smaller part of the overall business), & finally conquer and control the oil. If you cannot conquer by democracy you will conquer by wars, you will create & inflame hell, until you take over the ruins & what’s left of the resources.
Hate the democrats and patriots who would nationalize the oil;
Love the mass murderers & dictators who would give over all the resources to you; & you Adore the monsters who would put even their talent to kill & torture at your disposal.
You do not create chaos, for there is a strict order in your destruction.
You do not create chaos but hell, desired & controlled, for the nations who dare defy your plunder of their resources and for the people who refuse to wear your chains for their hands, “hearts & minds”.
And when the hell you brought upon the people of Iraq and Iran killed millions, we finally realized there is nothing collateral about it. You did it for the sake of oil & the power oil brings to you, and for the power & wealth you want others to deprive of.
Therefore your attacks, wars, famine, plagues, the hells you bring upon us are genocidal, & worse in character & intention than anything anyone would do from pure rage or hatred or ignorance.
You murdered & tortured people of Iraq to bring Saddam Hitler to power.64
Then you murdered & poisoned people of Iraq
because Saddam Hitler you forced upon them is – evil.
Tell us, what would Satan do differently?
You may dig deeper into your lies, to bury the truth deeper, under your lies, but we can see through all your layers of lies & filth.
We can finally understand your game.
You murder us, and torture, beat us & humiliate, you poison us, and starve us, and force against each other and against ourselves…
for the sake of oil and power the oil brings to you…
Guess how many US oil companies (out of 60 present at the time) had a signed oil contract with Iraq before the US aggression on Iraq?65
Guess what companies exploit/control the Iraqi oil today?
To share with NYTimes star thinkers some news that are not fit to – profit:
It’s not that the East hates freedom of the West
but the West covets the oil of the East.
You are bloodthirsty for (our) oil.
If the US/UK sanctions against Iraq were lifted, no US company would control Iraqi oil.
That is the reason you kept the sanctions, and that is the reason why your sanctions were genocidal in consequences and intention, and there is nothing collateral about that.
Though you may defend yourselves that bloodthirst comes collaterally to you, & that oilthirst is your primary virtue, even according to your laws, if you heard of those, inevitable & foreseeable consequences are – intended. But you didn’t have to predict consequences of your crimes (& how could those be anything but criminal), because when the consequences were already there, for (six) years, before the whole world to see, halfway through the sanctions half a million Iraqi children martyred to death, you said it was your choice, and you continued to force your deadly choice on the people of Iraq for decades to come, with known & inevitable outcome. What could be the consequences of denying a nation food, clean water, medicine, vaccines, soap, powdered milk to dried mothers of Iraq, yet supplying them with tons of uranium instead…You even blocked the cleanup of radioactive old battlefields. There is nothing accidental in your crimes…
Be prepared that we now know & will never forget you.
To have the US tailored “Iraqi” oil laws passed, to grab the oil, you had to destroy the country, crush the people into 1% superrich (traitors) & 99% superpoor society.66 Strong nation would never give up its resources.
So to squeeze the oil out of Iraq, you crushed the people of Iraq and that means children suffered the most. There is nothing collateral about that genocide. White-collarness of the genocide makes it only worse. Premeditated, calculated crime is never lighter than the same one committed in rage, hate or ignorance.
Worst judges of the worst courts of the worst nations would know this much.
When you cannot finish off a country or plunder in a year, you proclaim it – a quagmire.
Our countries –quagmire to you.
Our deserts – your quagmire.
You have fired uranium on Iraq in 1991.
And after you have seen the consequences of that, you have used it again, in 2003.
In aggression against Iraq you call “intervention”, you have poisoned million of your soldiers with uranium made in USA.
What do you think are the consequences to the children living and dying in Iraq and Afghanistan? Kids are twenty times more susceptible to the effects of radioactive dust you spread across their country.
7% increase in cancer rates amongst children would be a disaster.
But unlike anything ever before, it’s 700% in some areas of Iraq,67 and that is a genocide.
Or is it worth it to you?
You had to use uranium shells to destroy…
(obviously) Armoured vehicles on Highway of Death – to Iraq
US army shot the retreating Iraqi army68
So to burn Iraqis with 10000C conventional weapons is…
[“He was trying to get out of that truck… He was fighting to save his life to the very end, till he was completely burned up,” witnessed photograph Keith Jarecke about his war photo of Iraqi soldier on a Highway of Death – no one in the US mainstream would publish]69
…not enough, you had to grill them at 60000C70 of radioactive fire…
Would it make your victims six times “deader”?71
You have used militarily pointless radioactive weapon (WMD at that) though you know the children would breathe your uranium tomorrow & forever…
Where are your doctors & physicists?
Have they ever protested collectively against poisoning the world with uranium made in USA? How many out of how many of them?
Radioactivity in atmosphere over Great Britain peaked during the 2003 aggression on Iraq…72 So you are poisoning all the children of the world.
Where are your doctors?
Have they visited Iraqi hospitals?
Iraqi doctor [Riyadh Lafta] was invited to give lecture in USA on growing cancer rates amongst Iraqi children.
You denied him visa.
You have barred him from entering the US. 73
But you have entered…
A mother from Falluja gave birth to a boy without skull.
Baby lived for four days.
Her little daughter has…
…six fingers on each hand and…
…foot, and has many other problems and pains…
Mother said she would love to have another child but she is afraid to have one.
When people are afraid to have children because of your weapons,
you tell me if that is a genocide?
If your daughters and sons wished to visit the places and breathe for a month the air of Iraq and the wind of their deserts… and to travel Iraqi towns you have bombed with uranium…
Would you advise them against it?
And what would you say if they decided to stay for good in Iraq, have a family there? In Falluja, Basra or other such places…
What is the sign of your faith…
Who are the martyrs on your…
Your mainstream politics & media are proud to spot a few Nixon’s bugs in a hotel…
& bravely bugged & kicked him for those bugs…
The most devastating story is that you consider this
– the most devastating detective story of century
Vietnamese kids – undetectables?
Million Vietnamese kids poisoned with Agent Orange – invisible. 76
You revere as the wise old moderate… one who ordered:
“…anything that flies on anything that moves” 77 in Cambodia.
“Anything that flies”-Kissinger leads the diggers…
of US diplomacy… center
Your everything that flies bombed Khmer Rouge to power in Cambodia, and your everything that flies dropped on everything that moved in Laos more bombs than total of WWII including atomic bombs…78
Kids used to move there too.
Have you ever thought of that?
How many children in USA
armies of Cambodia, Laos & Vietnam killed?
And how many of their children your, US Army poisoned, maimed, burned or killed?
And you are proud that you have impeached, or whatevered, your president, by the power of your free media, for – bugs, not kids. Never kids.
One of the two ruling parties of yours that ordered three countries be devastated was bugged, probably in a quest for sex scandal… That could ruin your mainstream politician, but murdering million children most certainly would not…
Your mainstream was proud to probe & poke private affairs of another of your presidents, while million Iraqi children he murdered by sanctions & uranium remained – off the screens & pages.
Bed of US president bigger than million Iraqi graves.
[and so on ad nauseam, Bin Laden could bug US… concluding:]
…though I never ordered nor do I condone any of it…”
Nothing could stop him strike such a pose, whether true or false.
Obviously, there are plenty of points he should be gagged for rather than granted the right to speak them out freely at the court. The ultimate gag, 100% speech-proof, is – the bullet, of course.
Bin Laden could end up quite a nasty character at the trial, shamelessly recycling the same line:
Remember the children of Iraq.
Actually, we don’t have to speculate about Bin Laden’s defence. He spoke those thoughts & the very sentence – Remember the children of Iraq.
Do we have any idea of the number of victims of Bin Laden’s, “private” terrorism, vs. our, western, state terrorism? What is the proportion?
His lawyers further might present the evidence to the court, that Bin Laden kind of terrorism, “in some 30 odd years killed some 20,000 victims”,79 that’s up to 2007, while state terrorism, our Western terrorism against people of Iraq, murdered by sanctions alone more than half a million children under the age of five, by the year 1998. That is after eight years of sanction against Iraq, but there were five more to come, plus another US/UK aggression (2003), invasion, occupation… and tons of uranium more to come…)
How would that make Bush/Obama/Clinton parties look like?
How would it make “democrats” & “republicans” look like?
How would it make western judicial system looks like?
How would it make the western armies look like?
Whose crime is greater?
Who is greater terrorist?
If Bin Laden would claim that he, with his crimes, only reacts to the crimes of the western empires, because the west would not budge otherwise, no matter how many Iraqi children their empires murder for the sake of oil,
would not the court be obliged & forced to listen to the numbers of victims of both sides, and investigate those numbers, and rule on those numbers?
Imagine: how would that make the “mainstream” media, “mainstream” anything, look like?
Bloodthirsty for Bin Laden only after he killed Americans (not before), “mainstream” media were mysteriously silent about hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children murdered by their empires. That is not even an issue, anywhere in the western “mainstream”.
Can anyone imagine the “mainstream” journalists seeking justice for the victims or punishment for the perpetrators of uranium (-made in USA) crimes?
They, the “mainstream”, should, thanks to Madeleine Albright, rather be called “it’s worth it”-media, or $media & $journalists…80
Put it in another perspective:
Hitler’s machinery murdered over one million Jewish children.81
And he needed WWII for that.
[US administration’s response to the holocaust was, perhaps, best summed up by Harry Truman: “If we see that Germany is winning we ought to help Russia and if Russia is winning we ought to help Germany and that way let them kill as many as possible.”82]
…invisible to the “mainstream”.
That is why the “mainstream” could not face…
…Bin Laden at the court – he would talk about the children of Iraq.
Even “justices” of US courts, from subprime to the Supreme, would not bother to fake as little humanity towards Iraqi children…
In good mood… on average
…as Bin Laden would challenge them at the court with.
US courts, all the way to the Supreme one, are perfectly capable &happy to deliberate on the same sex marriage, yet never occurred to them that no one had the right to harm children of Iraq with uranium… or anything (else).
Children of Iraq, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Laos, Cambodia… never LGBT enough for the US courts.
To think of it –
On the subject of Iraqi victims, for example, our “mainstream” – $journalists do not even rise to the level of Bin Laden’s humanity – remember the children of Iraq – he said, to remember us of those children $media forgot or hides, and he would most certainly say it again and again…
- because western imperialist crime against Iraqi children was the powerful force that recruits desperate people for Bin Laden’s crimes,
- because that was his motive for action, he said it himself
- because that is his best defence at the court of common (Anglo-American) law85
- & because that was all the dignity Bin Laden could muster & sanest legacy to his followers he could ever construe and dare say publicly, without a shame, shaming… us:
Remember the children of Iraq…
Bin Laden would punch those words in the faces of US media, US justices, US military, and US “democrats”/“republicans”…
If none of them seeks the justice for the perpetrators of uranium crimes, nor for the victims, then Bin Laden proved his point (& case) – “You simply never respond to anything but the same sort of terror you bring upon your victims.”
Remember the children of Iraq…
That is the sentence Bin Laden was assassinated for.
It might make us think…
about the imperial governments of the west,
justice of our courts
and about ourselves…
That is why Obama administration assassinated Bin Laden!
Not to (let us)…
Remember the children of Iraq.
“Demonstrate and write to your Congressman, or phone him, or send him an e-mail…”
Probably to elucidate perpetrator of a crime – about his crime.
Like they don’t know what they have done.
Like crimes are committed in a sleep.
And why demonstrate?
Why shout against the crimes Congressmen you voted to power committed?
(Voting them or sleeping through the elections that put them to power is in effect just the same.)
If you are against uranium crimes, then stop voting the criminals who ordered them.
If you vote the $parties, then, please, stop shouting against the crimes of the $politicians you voted to power.
World needs no clown parades but people’s movement, movement of, by & for the people, so the honourable citizens would never again vote for the criminals, nor for their crimes but for just & reasonable people & causes.
So what can you do?
It’s high time we try something different.
You can write to…
Amy Goodman of Democracy Now
Michael Moore of Michael Moore…
Jürgen Elsässer of Compact Magazine
John Pilger of Pilger & No Comp.
Write to Pilger, Goodman, Elsässer & Moore…urging them to make an international team of journalists and filmmakers (like Frieder Wagner, Fouad Hady, Emir Kusturica, Boris Malagurski, Michael Moore & John Pilger are) that would go to Iraq tracing & filming consequences of uranium crimes of NATO powers.
Doctors who spoke publicly about the uranium crimes (like Ryad Lafta, Jinan Ghalib Hassen, Jawad Al-Ali) could help them along the way of sorrow… throughout the country, in hospitals & graveyards, cities & deserts…
The world needs the truth about the perpetrators and victims of uranium crimes, sanctions, wars and about who controls the oil of Iraq at the end…
We need such teams following & documenting the trail of uranium crimes committed against Afghanistan, Libya, Serbia, Republic of Srpska, Bosnia…
Iraq comes first.
Mainstreamists would skip all this, arguing that it’s yesterday’s news, at best, therefore unnecessary.
“Yesterday’s news” is the name for the crimes of masters of the “mainstream” media.
If we leave yesterday’s crimes unpunished we are inviting crimes of tomorrow.
If we forget Clintons, Bushes, McCain, Kerry, their parties & party comrades destroyed Iraq, then we will let them destroy Libya, we will let them support Islamic State, we will let them destroy Syria… or they already did that too?
And we have invited them do it.
“Mainstream” might allow people to chat a bit about the big things, sometimes…
Chat, but never decide about anything important.
Documentary report from Iraq is not purely to educate, but to bring light to the fundamental truths we, citizens of the world, need to know, because we must decide about them.
Uranium is here to stay.
Uranium cannot be yesterday’s news, not until we do what we have to do about it.
Have we changed anything in our own behaviour & lives in a response to uranium crimes?
Or we behave & vote like those never happened?
Have we done anything effective to force the $politicians & subservient generals stop using radioactive weaponry?
If we insist uranium crimes remain unpunished, that guarantees repetition, and worse.
If we cannot organize against colossal and obvious uranium crimes committed against the people & nature of Iraq & Afghanistan…
…We will never be able to decode & oppose
any other political & military crimes ruling parties of NATO empires commit,
nor any of their crimes against environment.
This simple truth should command our action.
Write to Goodman, Pilger, Moore & Elsässer, demanding from them to run public opinion survey on following points:
1. I demand uranium crimes be investigated, truth established and justice delivered to the victims and to the perpetrators of uranium crimes committed against the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yugoslavia/Serbia and against million US soldiers poisoned by uranium made in USA.
2. I am against voting the ($)parties & their ($)politicians [“democrats” & “republicans”] who commanded the uranium crimes be committed.
3. I demand the movement of, by & for the people be formed,
movement that would run at the elections for the US Congress.
Amongst priorities of the people’s movement there must be justice for the victims and justice for the perpetrators of uranium crimes.
4. Neither industry nor individual should profit from uranium crimes.
Manufacturers of radioactive weapons are perfectly aware of illegality & the criminal consequences usage of their weapons has.
I demand corporations that made & profited from radioactive weapons used against the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yugoslavia/Serbia, bear lion’s share of healthcare costs, cleanup, investigation and research costs and all the other damages, reparations and costs accumulated due uranium crimes…
Those who profited from uranium crimes must physically take part in cleaning up the scene of their crimes from radioactive material.
If we let them get away profiting of their colossal crimes, corporations would just calculate their cost/benefit ratio and continue financing $parties, lobbying for imperialist wars & profit from their crimes.
Assange… crown of €U thorns
5. Julian Assange, Dreyfus of our age, is the head & heart of the WikiLeaks organization that most efficiently fights against the crime of hiding crimes.
Attack on Julian Assange is the crime of hiding the crimes of aggression, invasion, occupation & genocide NATO powers committed against the people of Iraq and Afghanistan… crimes which Assange bravely exposed & fought against.
Sweden insists Assange be walled off the earth infinitely, never accused of anything, but simply because they demand to talk to him yet refuse to talk to him. Kafka weeps.
European Union is accurately described by the fact that Assange had to seek the sanctuary in embassy of – Ecuador.
Where are the honourable nations in EU? Counting them is simple:
Is there a single EU nation damanding justice & freedom for Julian Assange?
Attack on Assange is the shame & sin of all the citizens of European Union, United States & Australia.
By defending freedom of
Assange we defend our own freedom.
Demanding justice for Assange means demanding justice for the people of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Therefore I demand:
I. Julian Assange be free again,
II. all the EU members and European Union itself give public and written guarantees Assange will not be extradited to the United States;
III. secret charges the US inquisition court cooked against Assange – be exposed, & persecution of Assange by the countless institutions of US be halted, abandoned and exposed;
IV. shameful persecution (not amounting to prosecution) of Assange by the Swedish courts be ended at once
and all the documents of the “case” and the “questions” they allegedly wanted to ask Assange – be handed over to him
V. Sweden, United Kingdom, European Union and United States of America owe to Assange freedom and years they robbed of his (& of his family’s) life & work, those countries and nations owe Assange that those who criminally wronged him be held accountable, damages paid, explanation and apology given.
6. I demand that students around the world deliberate, debate, decide & vote on these points, on the matter of uranium crimes, victims & perpetrators, about the shackles made in EU/USA for Julian Assange, and I suggest & demand that they vote about it all at the assemblies of all students, not in the parliaments of the chosen ones.
We should all organize these surveys, privately, amongst friends, and publicly, wherever we can.
Students around the world have the best opportunities and gravest responsibility to organize assemblies to deliberate, debate, decide & vote on these points.
Urge them do it. Students could lead.
Just ask the people you respect & those who respect you, if these points are righteous demands. That is first.
Not if they support anything, nor if they think anything can or would succeed, but only if these demands are the righteous ones.
If they concede this much, that we truly seek justice with the demands listed in these six points, ask them if they would support the demands and perhaps join in further organizing for these causes.
Estimating success that is – prognosticating failure of every just social endeavour became the standard excuse for doing nothing. Labelling justice as naiveté, respecting egotism as realism is another tranquilizer for the masses.
We enjoy forgetting that the power of imperialism lays in our consent.
You are not anti-fascist because the victory is guaranteed or paid, but because fascism is evil, dangerous & destructive, & because you are against evil…
You are not against the gravest crimes of civilization today, which are crimes of imperialism, because success is predestined and medals await you, but because justice is the best possible solution, and because you are good…
Those who want to think through these questions more, who are not sure if uranium is really… bad thing to breathe in or fire anywhere on anyone…
and everyone of the privileged world anyway (with access to internet, that is)
should watch and further recommend these three documentaries:
- Paying the Price – Killing the Children of Iraq
By John Pilger;
- Deadly Dust (Todesstaub) [aka Iraq – The Doctor the Depleted Uranium and the Dying Children]
By Frieder Wagner and Valentin Thurn
- Iraq’s Deadly Legacy
Report by Fouad Hady.
About the plight of US soldiers in Iraq due uranium & other toxins & injustices
their generals & government invoked upon them
and medical care
their doctors denied them…
You should watch five documentaries listed here 87.
People of Afghanistan and Iraq had nothing to do with the 9/11 terrorist acts.
Yet we, loyal subjects of the NATO powers and, more disgustingly, subjects of their satellites, we consumers of the western democracies,
we collectively have punished them – collectively,
for the crime they were entirely innocent of.
Condoning, voting or keeping quiet about uranium crimes, as we still do,
or simply not demanding punishment for the uranium crimes,
means those are the crimes of ours.
we would rather have him killed
than face our responsibility for the consequences of uranium crimes and sanctions he would speak about,
we would rather cheer assassination of Bin Laden,
just as our emperors designed us to behave,
than face him at the court.
Hitler, long before he launched the holocaust, predicted that when the time of “final solution” comes, no one in the west would act against it.88
Bin Laden challenged the westerners with this:
– that you/we are perfectly capable of murdering million Iraqi children,
yet would never organize not to vote for, let alone punish – the perpetrators of genocidal actions western empires took against the people of Iraq…
Could we face him…
…& prove him wrong?

Discussed at: Democracy Now,
Seymour Hersh Details Explosive Story on Bin Laden Killing & Responds to White House, Media Backlash,
3 Further confirmation that the plan was to assassinate not apprehend Bin Laden alive, in the S. Hersh text:
“The White House’s initial account claimed that bin Laden had been brandishing a weapon; the story was aimed at deflecting those who questioned the legality of the US administration’s targeted assassination programme. The US has consistently maintained, despite widely reported remarks by people involved with the mission, that bin Laden would have been taken alive if he had immediately surrendered.”
“All units in the Joint Special Operations Command operate under stringent secrecy and the JSOC leadership believed, as did Kayani and Pasha, that the killing of bin Laden would not be made public for as long as seven days, maybe longer. Then a carefully constructed cover story would be issued: Obama would announce that DNA analysis confirmed that bin Laden had been killed in a drone raid in the Hindu Kush, on Afghanistan’s side of the border.”
“‘Kayani eventually tells us yes, but he says you can’t have a big strike force. You have to come in lean and mean. And you have to kill him, or there is no deal’”

Forgotten victims, Jonathan Steele in Heart, Monday 20 May 2002 09.33 BST
The direct victims of American bombs and missiles have commanded most political and media attention, though no one is certain how many even of these there were.
A Guardian report in February estimated these casualties at between 1,300 and 8,000 deaths. A Guardian investigation into the “indirect victims” now confirms the belief of many aid agencies that they exceeded the number who died of direct hits.
As many as 20,000 Afghans may have lost their lives as an indirect consequence of the US intervention. They too belong in any tally of the dead.

Cheney turned for help to James Baker III, an old friend and mentor. After leaving Washington in 1992, Baker had endowed a major think tank, the Baker Institute, at Houston’s Rice University.
The Baker Institute energy group was notable. It included Kenneth Lay, head of the soon-to-be infamous Enron Corp., and one of Bush’s most generous financial supporters. It included a board member of Shell, a top executive of BP, and the head of ChevronTexaco. Oil consultant Matthew Simmons was also in the group, and the Baker Institute board included the former Kuwaiti oil minister, Sheikh Saud Nasir al-Sabah.
Sheikh al-Sabah’s daughter, in curious postscripts to the first Iraq war, was later identified as the Kuwaiti woman who had told the US Congress in October 1990 that she had witnessed Iraqi soldiers taking Kuwaiti babies from their incubators. Her shocking testimony had been a major factor in getting US popular support for Operation Desert Storm. That incident was later exposed as a PR stunt, fabricated by Hill & Knowlton, a Washington firm close to the Bush administration. The exiled Kuwaiti government had paid Hill & Knowlton $10.8 million to win friends for Kuwait in Washington on going to war with Iraq. Hill & Knowlton’s Washington office was run at the time by Craig Fuller, former chief of staff to Vice President George Bush.”

43 Osama B. L. ex tempore: “[btw you publicly admitted that you have lied about the sanctions with genocidal consequences – for years.]
Albright is in details:
It was exactly when [Rolf Ekeus of] the UN inspection was about to announce that Iraqi WMD does not exist that newly appointed State Secretary, Madeleine Albright, dropped the bomb on UN inspection and a chance of lifting the sanctions, saying:
“We do not agree with the nations who argue that if Iraq complies with its obligations concerning weapons of mass destruction, sanctions should be lifted,” (Georgetown University, March 1997)
Goal: Iraq would see no point in cooperating with the inspection, and when they slow the inspection, non-cooperation would be proclaimed, great pretext for keeping the sanctions and bombs falling on Iraq until you finally liberate Iraqis from Iraqi oil.
One wonders if the price worth paying half a million Iraqi children included the office of – the US State Secretary.”

48 On a way to UN hall where he was to lie the world into aggression against Iraq, Collin Powell had to pass the corridor beside the copy of Picasso’s masterpiece painting Guernica.
Painted in pain, a reaction of an artist to criminal fascist bombardment of the Basque town Guernica, it became iconic symbol of the twentieth century and the new wars – the explosion, chaos, scream, darkness and light worst than darkness, technology the murderer, media – describing the hell, hiding the hell, defending the hell & creating it, death and life only to become agony & death, Guernica – screams of war…
Powerful symbol, eh?
More powerful than Powell could stomach, so they had to blind, gag & shackle Guernica… Geniuses of imperialism came up with the solution – they draped the Guernica with disgusting blue of the UN so Powell could finally parade comfortably beside the artistic symbols of his crime and his victims – accusing him from the wall.
It follows that the true flag of the UN, to this day is…
…as long as Collin Powellism is unpunished, Collin Powells revered and we all are politically too correct to call a mass murderer – murderer at all.
On Powell’s shameless stroll in the corridor of shame, beside the buried Guernica, watch:

61 Concerning the western fears of the eastern WMD, it is instructive to read Encarta’s entry on Iraq-Iran war:
“In 1986 Iran captured the Iraqi gulf town of Al Fāw. Iraq responded with more effective techniques—especially the use of massive amounts of poison gas—to thwart Iran’s frontal assaults. Iraq also stepped up its attacks on Iranian cities, oil installations, and shipping, drawing severe Iranian reprisals against Iraqi oil production and shipping that prompted more American activity in the gulf. Although clashes between American and Iranian forces fell far short of full-scale battles, the American presence nevertheless brought an end to Iranian superiority over Iraq at sea, giving Iraq time to resupply its weaponry and stop the Iranian ground advance.”
NB: In the same paragraph where Saddam’s army started using “more effective techniques” (Encarta getting Orwellian, again) = “massive amounts of poison gas”, Iran’s defence “prompted more American activity in the gulf”, “clashes between American and Iranian forces”, “American presence”… etc. Americans are simply – present. How disgustingly appropriate.

& What was the reaction of Iran to the allied Saddam Hitler/US using “more effective techniques” = massive amounts of poison gas?
Iranian dreaded leaders decided not to use poison gas back at the enemy who poisoned them, they would not poison Saddam Hitler’s nor the US Army.

64 “According to Western scholars, as well as Iraqi refugees and a British human rights organization, the 1963 coup was accompanied by a bloodbath. Using lists of suspected Communists and other leftists provided by the C.I.A., the Baathists systematically murdered untold numbers of Iraq’s educated elite—killings in which Saddam Hussein himself is said to have participated. No one knows the exact toll, but accounts agree that the victims included hundreds of doctors, teachers, technicians, lawyers and other professionals as well as military and political figures.”,
Roger Morris, “A Tyrant 40 Years in the Making”, NYT, March 14, 2003.
65 “[Richard] Cheney Energy Task Force analyzed detailed map of Iraqi oil, and an interesting list – “Foreign Suitors for Iraqi Oilfield Contracts” of “more than sixty companies from thirty countries with contracts in various stages of discussion with Saddam Hussein for oil and gas projects across Iraq.
Not a single US company was on this list.
None of these contracts could take effect while the UN Security Council sanctions against Iraq remained in place.”

U.S. bombers dropped more ordnance on Laos in this period than was dropped during the whole of the World War II, with around 700,000 civilian casualties in consequence.
Of the 260 million bombs that rained down, particularly on Xiangkhouang Province on the Plain of Jars, some 80 million failed to explode, leaving a deadly legacy.”

It’s not that his order and consequences were not criminal or unlawful (in breach of London Naval Treaty), but the “evidence of similar conduct by the Allies was presented at his trial,” and that was enough to make “his sentence (was) not assessed on the grounds of this breach of international law”.
