How Many People Has America Killed Since WW2?

Friends, I thought I’d include this bit of information as a postscript to the last post. My thanks go to PEACEONEARTH.Net.

pone

The United States Has Killed At Least 8 Million People
In The Last 50 Years For The Greedy
Capitalistic
Corporate Profits Controlled By The 1% Oligarchy

1952 – 79, 70,000 Iranians killed. ( Ayatollah Khomeini, US public enemy for the 1980s, was on the CIA payroll while in exile in Paris in 1970s, as were Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden at different times and in different places. )

1954 – 120,000 Guatemalans killed

1954 – 1975, 4,000,000 Vietnamese and Cambodians killed.

1965 – 3,000 Dominican Republicans killed

1965 – 800,000 Indonesians killed

1973 – 30,000 Chileans killed

1975 – 250,000 East Timorese killed

1970s – 1,000,000 Angolans killed

1984 – 30,000 Nicaraguans killed

1980s – 80,000 El Salvadoreans killed

1989 – 8,000 Panamanians killed in an attempt to capture George H. Bush’s CIA partner now turned enemy, Manuel Noriega,

1980s – over 700,000 Libyans, Grenadians, Somalians, Haitians, Afghanistanis, Sudanese, Brazilians, Argentineans and Yugoslavians killed,

1991 – over 1,000,000 Iraqis killed, including over 500,000 children — about which Madeline Albright ( then, Secretary of State ) said “their deaths are worth the cost”. While George W. Bush owns over 80% of the oil wells in Kuwait, trouble will continue there.

The Greatest Nation In The History Of The World Is…?

1945-08-06-enola-gayWas this the high-point of the American Empire?

 

foundingfathersOr was it this?

 

PHAN THI KIM PHUC

Or perhaps this, a child whose clothes were burned off with napalm?

 

Friends, as you would know, the Americans claim that they are the greatest nation in the history of the world (but there is no argument that they’re the most hated nation on Earth).

Various Presidents and Political Luminaries have made this claim. Perhaps they are working on the principle that if you say something over and over, some people will believe it. I don’t!

Now, I don’t know about you, but I think this claim cannot be backed up by any real evidence. If America had claimed it had killed more people than any other nation in history I would certainly agree with that.

Yes, the white Christians who came over the sea to the New World, did not bring the Love of Jesus with them to share with the Indians. Instead, the set about killing most of the Indians and stealing all of their lands. In a few cases they gave the Indians trinkets to consummate the deal as well as smallpox-laced blankets.

The Christians also signed various treaties with the indigenous people but they meant little and the handful of Indians that survived the visitation of the Pale Faces ended up on reservations where they still languish today.

Next, the invaders, perhaps feeling guilty, replaced the Red Indians with Black Slaves and used them to man and women the cotton plantations. They whipped and hung black slaves who didn’t toe the white mans’ line while the owners of the female slaves filled their fecund wombs with brindle babies.

While the slave industry flourished, the Pale Faces had some warring experiences with the British and the French. Then, suddenly, out of the blue, some Pale Faces felt that slavery was a bit old hat, not a good look!

The result was the Civil War between the North and the South. Again the blood flowed over the Prairies in tidal quantities and mixed with the blood of the Native Indians and the slaves.

Eventually the North won and, resultantly, a divide was created which, according to some people, still exists today. But the Civil War didn’t extinguish the lust for killing so the Americans began to expand their military capabilities and they began to rove around the world lending a ‘helping’ hand wherever they found conflict.

They either invaded other nations or supported Despots who saw things the American Way. The idea of pretending to be democracy-carrying saviours while carrying a Big Stick to deal with anyone who opposed them was their raison de etre.

Anyone who Googles ‘ American Wars and Interventions’ will see the major wars which the U.S. engaged in over a couple of centuries. It seemed to culminate in WW2 where, though it was a close call, the fascist nations of Japan and Germany were finally defeated even though the U.S. joined the conflict almost two years late. America may have come late, but it still dropped an atomic bomb on Japan which had already been thoroughly defeated and humiliated.

So, while the world was exhausted and largely bankrupted by the World War, what did America do? Ever the opportunist nation, it began to build a massive army. It feared  Russia even though Russia lost millions of its people fighting and defeating the Germans. So fighting the socialist Reds and spreading predatory capitalism became the next American objective.

You may get the idea that America did nothing else but build its Army to a size that had nothing to do with its defense but had to do with getting its troops, warships and fighter planes spread right around the world. You’d be right!

Not for America, the building of a rich, cultural empire like the Ancient Greeks did, oh, no! America, using the sword, wanted world domination and to hell with time-wasting pleasantries like art, sculpture, drama, politics, music, philosophy, etc.

No, everything America did centered around armaments and developing hideous weapons like napalm, Agent Orange, cluster bombs, landmines, and artistic pursuits like rendition, torture, cages, etc. It had some writers of note, Hemmingway, Fitzgerald, er…, hang on a minute, there must be more…

Not in Yankee Land! War and Killing were its main achievement and now it has more than 1,000 military bases around the world and the oceans of the world and the skies are filled with its machines of war and killing. Where it hasn’t got bases it buys the loyalty and the assistance of various despots and potentates.

Even Australia is being taken over by the Yanks. They are turning  it into a launching pad for its drones and a spy-network so it can keep tabs on every nation on Earth while it manipulates them and exploits them for its own benefit. Even its troops now march on Australian soil.

So began the Korean War, the Vietnamese War and dozens of others. The end result is that Russia and China and the Brics Nations are assisting each other to offset America’s imperialism and I think there is a fair chance of a nuclear war occurring as the U.S. contemplates the meteoric rise and rise of China and Russia who, together, will threaten America’s plans to control every nation on Earth.

America claims greatness. I would appreciate if someone would advise me where American greatness can be seen (surely they wouldn’t claims greatness can be seen in Hiroshima).

To me, America is nothing more than a barbaric, warmongering nation that, unlike the Ancient Greeks, for over 300 years, has given the world nothing of real value (unless you think that killing and destroying are virtues).

Absolutely Nothing!

Phony Versus Vladimir Putin! No Contest!

Folks, you’ve heard about the ‘shirt-front’ threat by our Prime Minster to ‘down’ Putin.

I include three images which might interest you before you put all your money on Phony Abbott, also known as the Warlord Prime Minister of Australia.

_61978903_getty_putin_judo_action Pride often comes before a fall.

 

s_p04_0RTX89K4Real men hunt dangerous wild animals face to face.

I know where I’m putting my money. How about you?

P.S. I’d like to apologize to the people of the world for the intrusion of Abbot into Australian politics. Keep in mind that Abbott was elected by his party members, not by the Australian people. Keep in mind also that Abbott has been partially trained as a Priest and was at one stage a Rhodes Scholar and recently denied being ‘A Suppository Of All Knowledge!’

P.S. This song is a thing of rare beauty in an ugly world. Enjoy:

HELP! Australia Is Disappearing!

photo (3)THAT SEEKS WORLD DOMINATION!

 

I sent this urgent message to the world although, by the time you get it, Australia may well have vanished from Planet Earth.

Yes, the island country that is/was known for its sporting prowess, its embrace of the FAIR-GO principle, its easy-going, laid-back lifestyle, its wonderful beaches and pathetic politicians, its bright and breezy philosophy of life and love of cask wine, etc. is fast disappearing.

You can tell it by the mood in the Newspapers some of which have written editorials telling Putin not to come to the G-20 meeting in November which Australia is hosting.

So not only is our Prime Minister threatening to grab Putin’s shirt and throw him to the ground but now the MSM in Australia has gone one step further and is telling Putin not to come at all.

Friends, in terms of military power, Russia is a bull elephant and Australia is a microbe and a very tiny one at that.

Australia’s cheek and temerity comes from hiding behind the Brain-dead, Greed-driven Colossus of the U.S.A., a nation which has bankrupted itself several times over trying to pump its Armies up and up till they reach the sky.

The truth is that, left to its own devices, Australia couldn’t defeat a colony of breeding penguins, I kid you not. We can’t even stop Japan catching whales in our waters. We can’t even stop refugees from reaching our shores. We can’t even elect a decent Government or pick an intelligent Prime Minister.

And it seems we can’t stop the U.S. from taking over our country and using it as an American military/spy base, one of hundreds.

Look, I know there is an Ebola plague and trouble in Ukraine and Wall Street is experiencing gyrations of amazing height and velocity but Australia needs help desperately to preserve what’s left of our culture from the ravages of the American Imperium with its twin-towers of Predatory Capitalism and Endless War.

PLEASE HELP US RESIST AMERICAN IMPERIALISM!

 

 

Abbott Threatens The Russian President!

Large-VS-Small-Dogs‘I’d shirtfront you if I could reach your shirt!”

 

Friends, there’s no doubt about our Prime Minister. Well, more correctly, there is some doubt!

The SYDNEY MORNING HERALD reports the following (See link below for full story):

“Prime Minister Tony Abbott has escalated the war of words with Vladimir Putin, promising to “shirtfront” the Russian President when the pair meet at the G20 summit in Brisbane next month.

Mr Abbott’s vow to confront Mr Putin over the  loss of Australian lives in the MH7 Malaysian Airlines tragedy marks an escalation of tension between the two nations over the tragedy.

The Prime Minister told reporters on Monday he would tell Mr Putin that Australians were murdered by Russian-backed rebels in the Ukraine when MH17 was shot down, and that “we are very unhappy about this”.

Mr Abbott said he accepted that Russia had not wanted the tragedy to occur but “we now demand that you [Russia] fully cooperate with the criminal investigation”.

“”I’m going to shirtfront Mr Putin,” he said.

“I am going to be saying to Mr Putin Australians were murdered.”

“There’ll be a lot of tough conversations with Russia and I suspect the conversation I have with Mr Putin will be the toughest conversation of all.”

P.S. A shirtfront is a front on charge designed to knock an opponent to the ground. It is commonly used in AFL one of Australia’s many versions of football.

Well, Friends, that’s the report. So the Prime Minister of Australia is going to ‘shirtfront’ the leader of the second strongest nation in the world, a nation that has lots of nukes and a very large army and lots of intercontinental missiles.

What this chest-beating reveals is that our Prime Minister is a complete fool. He’s like a toy poodle threatening a Great Dane instead, in this case, the Great Dane is a Goliath if you know what I mean.

Does Tony, the Toy Poodle realize how silly he looks in the eyes of the world? Obviously, he has no idea.

Since he was made P.M. Tony thinks he has grown to Goliath-sized proportions. But he’s still the skinny little stupid runt that he’s always been.

Australians can only hope that Tony is given his comeuppance by Putin before he gets our country into BIG TROUBLE!

And I mean  BIG!

2020 – Protocol To Be Observed By All Non-Americans!

be-a-good-american

 

2020 – Protocol To Be Observed By All Non-Americans.

1. When an American walks by, all non-exceptional people will bow deeply.

2. When sighting an American flag, make the sign of the Cross.

3. If Obama is shown on television, sing God Bless America, all verses.

4. If American Armed Forces march by, throw rose petals enthusiastically. Anyone who spits will be shot, then urinated upon.

5. If American drones pass overhead, pray for forgiveness.

6. When drinking Coca Cola, use a silver chalice.

7. When approaching an American war-zone, never don a suit that repels radio-activity. It is un-American to suggest America has faults.

8. Wear a large sign that says: Yanks, Deliver Us From Evil For Thou Art The Power!

9. Tell all your friends: “We love rendition and waterboarding and cages.” Be sincere!

10. Once a week, attend an American checkpoint and confess all your inadequacies and anti-American thoughts and beg to be given leniency during the remedial flogging.

11. Once a week, curse your Mother because she’s not American.

12. On your car, carry a large flashing sign which says: America, Clearly The World’s Greatest Nation.

I Felt Sickened Today!

trojanhorseThe only thing missing is the Stars and Stripes!

 

I feel sickened today. Australia has again joined the Insatiable American War Machine. Australians are at war and, for us, the killing has started again.

In 1939-45 it was different. The U.S. joined the World War (nearly two years late) and helped to defeat the evil AXIS of Germany and Japan.

Then, in a complete about face, the U.S., a serial warmonger, unilaterally decided to take over control of the whole world but it didn’t announce this ambition.

Oh, no, it wrapped itself in the flags of democracy, human rights, freedom, equality, while it set about building a massive army, one that no other nation could match.

People, not attributing imperialism to America, didn’t question what the U.S. was doing. They believed the American lies, the duplicity, the propaganda, all of it.

They didn’t ask themselves why the U.S. needed so many military bases, or why the America dollar should be the world currency, or why the U.S. got involved in every war.

They didn’t question American use of rendition or torture or why they used weapons like depleted uranium and kept people in cages.

Decent nations in the world were tricked by the U.S. They couldn’t believe that the nation that saved us from Germany and Japan was angling to dominate the world using military force.

They watched America use bribery to further its interests and, quite often, it supported evil dictators or militants but no questions were asked by the unsuspecting world.

The world watched American support for Israel and gave the U.S. full marks for encouraging the brutal war-crimes and land stealing which Israel constantly commits.

When is the world going to realize the massive con-job that the U.S. has got away with and stop the Imperial Plunderers in their tracks before they lead us into a nuclear war?

If they are not stopped the world, if it survives a nuclear winter, will become like 1984 as Orwell predicted.

The deceitful, duplicitous American Wooden Horse can be found in most every nation on Earth.

It must be burned before each city and nation falls and ‘exceptional’ Yanks run the world!

 

 

Is Australia Going To Become A Killer Nation Again?

the-iraq-war-could-cost-more-than-6-trillionYet another orphan but who cares?

 

God-of-War-Ascension-PS3The God of War Rules Earth!

 

Well, as you would all know, Australia has sent 8 super-Hornet fighter jets to the Middle East plus hordes of SAS troops.

But the Government in Canberra, at least to my knowledge, has not killed anyone in the I.S camp yet. Only six Hornets are to be used and who knows how many SAS troops will be deployed before blood will be found on Australian fingers again.

In Australia, both the Coalition and the Labor Party are fully supporting the  war. Kill, kill, kill is the catch-cry  as, gripped by fear, we follow the Killer Nation of America into battle once again. This is in-spite of the admonition by Christ that: Thou Shall Not Kill.

Over centuries, humans have been programmed to think that killing others is a legitimate activity for humans, that and taking their resources. Yeah, we divide the world into Goodies and Baddies and we are always the Goodies no matter how many people we kill or whether they are civilians, women, kids, old people, etc. We not only kill them but we use things like depleted uranium to ensure our killing goes on and on even touching children still in the womb and gifting them with hideous birth defects.

Our world is sick. The culture that embraces endless war is sick. The culture that embraces infinite greed is sick. And a nation that is trying to dominate the world militarily and economically is the sickest of all.

Stand up and take a bow,  America. You’ve won the gold medal for killing. No other nation has even come close to you. Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot, they are Sunday School Boys compared with you. Besides, they killed their own people, not people from other nations!

Those who live by the sword will die by the sword!

May it be so!

Soon!

 

 

 

 

 

Australia Has Relinquished Its Sovereignty!

frightdome-bWar is for the insane!

 

Friends, today the Coalition Security Boffins meet to discuss Australia’s role in what is said to be our fight against terrorism in the Middle East.

This is rather ironic considering that the Middle East is on the opposite side of the world to us. It is also on the other side of the world to the U.S., the world’s premier instigator of wars and civil unrest.

What is required is for the proles, that’s you and me, to reject the ridiculous proposition that endless war is, or should be, the status quo.

Endless war is favored by the Capitalist Predators because they can make money from war and gain access to economic resources belonging to other nations, and, of course, it is the darling of many politicians who can use it to big-time themselves.

The Tinpot Fuhrer, Tony Abbott, like Howard before him, at high expense, couldn’t wait to send our fighter jets and troops overseas where they have had to sit on their hands for a considerable time.

The reality of the Australian situation is that we, the majority, don’t want any war whether it’s short or long. We have been cleverly programmed to accept it and we now need to totally reject it.

We have also been programmed to follow the U.S., the world’s biggest warmonger and conflict creator. As well, we have been subjected to a ‘Fear Doctrine’ just in case we ask questions. The level of fear in our country has rarely been higher and, daily, it is ramped up even further.

It’s time for intelligent citizens to reject the war model with its killing and destroying and, instead, to engage in promoting peace.

The warmongers must be demonized, drummed out of town, held up to ridicule and contempt!

They are anachronisms.

Finian Cunningham: A Powerful Voice!

Finian Conningham Edited

 

“Obama, The Salesman Of War,”

by Finian Cunningham.

“In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly last week, Obama sounded less statesman and more salesman, with the usual pitch that American leadership is all benevolent and virtuous. America is pursuing, America is committed, America is prepared… and so on and on went the tiresome egocentric rhetoric.

But like a dodgy salesman, the “goods” that Obama is hawking are downright fake. Caveat Emptor: buy it at your peril. Not only that, but the entire presentation to the potential buyers is littered with sly mendacity and ridiculous falsification of world events.

The US president used his address to the 69th UN session not to genuinely explore a collective solution to pressing world problems but rather as an opportunity to indulge in “American exceptionalism” – the deluded notion that America is magnificent and superior to all other nations. Obama’s speech was a breathtaking falsification of the real causes underlying many of the security threats facing the world, and an opportunity for him to shift the blame on to others…”

“A telling contradiction in Obama’s address was when he said: “The United States will never shy away from defending our interests, but nor will we shrink from the promise of this institution and its Universal Declaration of Human Rights”.

So, the US is committed to defending its interests with unilateral violence, but is also allegedly committed to the universal rights of all nations. The two propositions are mutually exclusive, and we know that unilateral violence is the one that the US always adheres to.”

Finian doesn’t mince words, does he? The two excepts shown above give you a taste of what he’s about. Presidents don’t frighten him at all, especially the snake-oil President of the U.S.

Please Give Me Back My Country!

201492614190682518_8“Yacoub Odeh lived with his family in Lifta. The roof of his home was blown off by the Israeli Army in 1969, but the remains of the house are still visible. He remembers a childhood of gardens, olive groves and racing other children to school.”

The story of Yacoub is repeated a million times over for many Palestinians. Treated as sub-humans by the militarily-strong Israelis, the stories of displacement and Israeli brutality and land-stealing are legion.

Look carefully at the face of Yacoub. In it is etched the pain of the dispossessed, the longing to belong, the wish to once again feel part of a thriving, peaceful community instead of living under the boot-heel of Jewish religious fanatics and their American enablers.

Thanks go to Al Jazerra for the story and the image above. It is a story told over decades yet the world still does nothing to stop Israeli imperialism and war crimes and atrocities against the powerless Palestinians.

Will the world ever find its conscience?

Hope For Humans Is Dying!

2008-10-23-candle

 The candle is flickering. Will it soon die?

 

Friends, I don’t know if you are feeling like me! I have an increasing sense of hopelessness.

I follow the news morning, noon and night and I see little more than growing, worsening chaos. Conflict is everywhere and the Kill And Plunder Brigade (headed by the U.S.) seems to be in the ascendancy.

The world argues about which is worse: Isil or the West. Proponents on both side hurl insults and propaganda at each other. And now the U.S., aided by a rabble of Arab Nations, is bombing Isil targets. Soon Britain will follow.

Australia has not yet got the green light to join the Yanks but it won’t be long before Abbott starts beating his chest and big-timing himself. Already new  police laws are being introduced and fear spreads through the Australian populace.

The Ukraine is still bubbling away and NATO procrastinates and stumbles as it tries to threaten Russia while simultaneously needing to buy  Russian  gas to heat their homes in Winter.

The U.S. and its Allies is giving weapons to all and sundry in the Middle East as well as fomenting disputes wherever it can. The Australian share-market is plummeting and there is talk of raising interest rates to hose down the frantic real estate market.

Trying to remain serene in this world is a task as daunting as climbing Mt Everest. The world appears to be possessed by demons and, sadly, killing and plundering is the only game in town. The U.S. gains ever more influence over my country, aided and abetted by our mindless politicians who, like worms, have no backbone or wisdom.

That we sent warplanes (8)  and troops over to the M.E. days ago means we have hundreds of troops who sit on their bums playing two-up while Tony chooses the moment of letting the hounds loose which will best suit his political ambitions. Then, when the bodies come home, he get to make rousing speeches and cry crocodile tears!

Out of all this chaos, you’d think that at least one nation in the world would stand up and question why there is no influential peace movement. Why are most nations involved in the killing and plunder game or simply sitting on the sidelines saying nothing?

Why are there few serious journalists writing powerful essays which pillory the warmongers and imperialists?

Why are most of the people in the world happy with being treated as sheeple, as objects that can be easily manipulated and exploited by the wealthy?

The world is being enveloped by darkness, by evil and Western Civilization (if you could even call it that) is partly, even mainly to blame.

Yet, as hope dies, no one seems to notice or care!
