A damning film on the American war criminals' occupation of Iraq

No End In Sight (1 hour 42 minutes), if you have the time.
An email from a friend:
You may pretty well know that the movie was nominated for an Oscar. It almost got it!

I just saw this movie.
Well I wonder who's gonna be accountable for this?
This war was unjustified, but the post war was full of incompetencies.

So again who's gonna be accountable for this?

If the US people don't put the main responsible in a face of justice, I'm sad to say that the US people would be accountable for this, they voted for them, they engaged their responsibility ...a vote in democracy is not a blank check.

9/11 and the "American Inquisition": Today in America, the General inquisitor is the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Today's legal system in America has all the essential features of an inquisitorial order. Torture is permitted "under certain circumstances", according to an August 2002 Justice Department "legal opinion":

"if a government employee were to torture a suspect in captivity, 'he would be doing so in order to prevent further attacks on the United States by the Al Qaeda terrorist network,' said the memo, from the Justice Department's office of legal counsel, written in response to a CIA request for legal guidance. It added that arguments centering on "necessity and self-defense could provide justifications that would eliminate any criminal liability" later. (See Washington Post, June 7, 2004)

"Even if an interrogation method might arguably cross the line drawn in Section and application of the stature was not held to be an unconstitutional infringement of the President's Commander in Chief authority, we believe that under current circumstances [the war on terrorism] certain justification defenses might be available that would potentially eliminate criminal liability." (Complete August 2, 2002 Justice Department Memorandum in pdf)

In Spain in the 16th Century, the inquisition was accepted. It was a consensus. The population was led to believe that it was a good thing and that torture "served to purify society".

"A bishop came out and shouted out the names of the condemned. then the heretics were led out, wearing black robes decorated with red demons and flames. officials of the government tied them to the stake.

"do you give up your heresy against the holy church?" a priest would challenge.

anyone who repented would be strangled to death before the fires were lit. most, however, stood silent or defiant. the fires were lit, and the square echoed with the screams of the heretics and cheers from the crowd." (quoted in Bill of Rights in Action, op cit)

Anybody who dared to question the validity of this "war on terrorism" was himself branded a terrorist and subjected to the anti-terrorist laws, which at the time, in Spain, was death.

In today's inquisitorial environment, most people are skeptical regarding 9/11 but nobody dares question the validity of the "war on terrorism".
Sarkozy's comic friend says sorry for 9/11 comments: On a radio show last Friday, the comedian interrupted a discussion on American politics, to say that it was "absolutely sure and certain" that the US government had stage-managed the 9/1l attacks in which 2, 896 people died.
Rights group finds secret prison in Basra: Iraqi Parliament’s Human Rights Commission has found up to 200 malnourished and disease-stricken Iraqi detainees locked in a secret prison in the southern city of Basra.

“Searing temperatures and extremely hot sun had almost grilled some inmates,” he said.

... [T]he 200 prisoners only had access to one flooded and dirty latrine.

The death of OPEC: Saudi Arabia walked out on OPEC yesterday, saying it would not honor the cartel's production cut. It was tired of rants from Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and the well-dressed oil minister from Iran.

As the world's largest crude exporter, the kingdom in the desert took its ball and went home.

Debunked: Ten Conservative Myths About National Security
The Ten Myths
* "Islamofascism" is our biggest national security threat.
* We're fighting them there so we don't have to fight them here.
* Military solutions are the only effective national security solutions.
* What we're doing is working; we haven't had another 9/11.
* "Law enforcement" approaches to terrorism don't work.
* We don't need allies; we can do this on our own.
* You don't negotiate with dictators.
* National security spending is different from pork-barrel spending on other programs.
* Airport security is critical to our anti-terrorism effort.
* It's always necessary to give up our civil liberties in a time of war.
A Furnace Seal'd: The Wondrous Death Squads of the American Elite: ... The United States admits that it is operating secret death squads in Iraq, and this barely rates a passing mention in the press, and certainly no comment whatsoever on the campaign trail, no debate among the national leadership. And this despite the fact that . . . the targets of the American death squads are not merely "terrorists," as the general public broadly understands the term -- i.e., religious extremists in the al Qaeda mold -- but anyone arbitrarily designated an "insurgent" or a leader in "the resistance."

In Iraq, the death squads were in operation almost from the start. For example, one of the earliest reports about the American formation of "paramilitaries" and "commando squads" to "track down" insurgents came from the Washington Post in December 2003:

Two weeks ago, the U.S. occupation authority decided to form a paramilitary unit to track down insurgents. The unit, composed of Iraqi militiamen from the country's five largest political parties, will work with U.S. Special Forces soldiers, and their operations will be overseen by U.S. military commanders. Since the summer, the CIA has recruited and trained some former Iraqi intelligence agents to help identify the insurgents...
America is Retreating Everywhere Except In Pakistan: Russia under the leadership of a nationalist like Vladimir Putin has deftly pushed back America. The Americans are tied up in Iraq and Afghanistan and their threats have more bluster than bite. This does not mean we go to war with Washington, which is still a superpower. It means that Pakistan, too, can deftly handle the cowboys. For starters, U.S. drones entering Pakistan must be a fair game. So should be the Afghan army soldiers who participate in violating our border. Pakistan should not go a step beyond defending our border. ...
Corrupt analogy: Exposing Israel’s attempts to equate the Palestinian refugee plight with Jewish immigrants from the Arab world: “The ethnic cleansing of Palestine by Israel was not an unintended consequence, or fortuitous occurrence, or even a ‘miracle’, as Israel’s first president Chaim Weizmann later proclaimed; it was the result of long and meticulous planning,” Ilan Pappe, Professor of Political Science at Haifa University, in his book ‘The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine’.

This week, the outgoing Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert sought to rewrite history by equating the violent uprooting and dispersal across the four winds of the native Palestinian community at the hands of Zionist Jews with the ideologically-motivated immigration of Jews from the Middle East to Palestine.
Killing The Messenger Before He Arrives–The Real Reason For Israel’s Latest Threat To Kidnap Ahmadinejhad: Less than 2 weeks before Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejhad is scheduled to speak on the floor of the UN General Assembly, Israel–using as her personal mouthpiece one of the most important figures in the history of the Jewish state with regards to spying, assassination and Zionist intrigue, Rafael Eitan–has threatened that Israel may “kidnap him” and bring him to trial for ‘incitement to genocide’ regarding some of the inflammatory (but truthful) statements he has made in recent years concerning the great experiment in Jewish self-rule in the Middle East. In addition to this, the US–like some effeminate, limp-wristed yes-man always willing to debase itself for Israel’s benefit–is holding up Ahmadinejhad’s visa for entry into the US.
BOOKS-IRAQ: "We Blew Her to Pieces": "I remember one woman walking by. ... She was carrying a huge bag, and she looked like she was heading toward us, so we lit her up with the Mark 19, which is an automatic grenade launcher, and when the dust settled, we realised that the bag was full of groceries. She had been trying to bring us food and we blew her to pieces."
Only now have I watched "No End in Sight." The film indeed is damning. The occupation? I don't have a word that does justice. But I do hope that all who have brought such terrible suffering to Iraq rot in hell.

The Rule Of Thumb: There's a rule of thumb for American politics that will never steer you wrong: if the Washington press corps worships a political figure and squeaks for decades on end about how he's a Brave Man of Honor and Wisdom, that political figure is one of the most dangerous lying scumbags on earth.

What's interesting about this period of history is how reality has simultaneously overtaken the PR campaigns of the Brave Men from each branch of US society.

Military: Colin Powell, the Trustworthy Truthtelling Honorable Gentleman, turns out to be the kind of guy who lies us into a giant meatgrinder war that will cost $3 trillion.
