War Crimes in the Middle East: Peace and Blessing

I can't say I completely understand why we're involved in this war. [?] I can't say I'm absolutely for or against it, despite watching NOTHING other than war coverage for a week now. I can't even say that I know for sure that we can believe our side's propaganda any more than I believe Iraq's. [?] But what I can say I ABSOLUTELY KNOW is that the men and women who are suffering and dying as a result of doing their duty NEED AND DESERVE our prayers and support. [?]

[Err...I suppose dying for the filthy rich seems plausible to some people but dying for the Coalition of the Killing's resource wars in the Middle East (a crime against humanity) is not. And the Coalition of the Killing's started the war with a pre-emptive attack and that means you should be against the war they started.]

One of the most heartbreaking things I've heard from this war was a reporter who said that some of the troops [militants], hearing of the anti-war protests at home asked him, "when we come home are the people going to spit on us and call us baby killers, like they did the Vietnam vets?" Can you imagine how much harder and more painful that question in their minds makes it for them to do what they have NO CHOICE about?????

[Nope, they are autonomous, that means they can think for themselves and if they kill innocent people, they are killers. If they kill babies, they are child killers. So you should spit on them if they come home!!!!!]

You all know that I have no fear of taking myself to rallies in support of what I believe is right, and while I respect everyone's right to publically stand up for what they believe in, I have to say that even if I KNEW I was absolutely opposed to the war, the LAST THING I'd want our troops [militants] and Saddam Hussein to see on Al Jazeerah TV was ME giving Saddam moral support by marching in the streets.

[What about moral support for 650, 000 dead innocent Iraqi people? Wouldn't you march in protest of the Coalition of the Killing? What do they stand for? Resource wars in the Middle East, occupation, genocide, torture and human rights abuse.]

Even if you're opposed to this war with all your heart, please don't break this prayer wheel for our troops [militants and murderers for king and queen and the 300 club of the wealthiest people in the world.]

And please don't forget to add a prayer for the innocent civilians of Iraq who have no more control over their government than we [you] do ours, and who are merely trying to carve out lives for themselves one day at a time just as we Americans are [just like americans who steal resources.]

The following is forwarded by my dear friend and Vietnam War veteran, Mad Dog Messmer.

The Average Military Man

The average age of the military man is 19 years. He is a short haired, tight-muscled kid who,under normal circumstances is considered by society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry behind the ears, not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country.

He never really cared much for work and he would rather wax his own car than wash his father's; but he has never collected unemployment either.

[But it's still not okay to kill people either. Because killing is a lethal meme.]

He's a recent High School graduate; he was probably an average student, pursued some form of sport activities, drives a ten year old jalopy, and has a steady girlfriend that either broke up with him when he left, or swears to be waiting when he returns from half a world away.

He listens to rock and roll or hip-hop or rap or jazz or swing and 155mm Howitzers.

He is 10 or 15 pounds lighter now than when he was at home because he is working or fighting from before dawn to well after dusk.

He has trouble spelling, thus letter writing is a pain for him, but he can field strip a rifle in 30 seconds and reassemble it in less time in the dark.

[And kill innocent people in one second and walk all over them in the dark.]

He can recite to you the nomenclature of a machine gun or grenade launcher and use either one effectively if he must.

He digs foxholes and latrines and can apply first aid like a professional.

[He/She is a digger who digs holes to bury the dead Just like a grave digger.]

He can march until he is told to stop or stop until he is told to march.

He obeys orders instantly and without hesitation, but he is not without spirit or individual dignity.

[He/She is just a bondage slave for the poweres that be there.]

He is self-sufficient. He has two sets of fatigues: he washes one and wears the other.

He keeps his canteens full and his feet dry.

He sometimes forgets to brush his teeth, but never to clean his rifle.

He can cook his own meals, mend his own clothes, and fix his own hurts. If you're thirsty, he'll share his water with you; if you are hungry, his food.

He'll even split his ammunition with you in the midst of battle when you run low.

He has learned to use his hands like weapons and weapons like they were his hands. He can save your life - or take it, because that is his job.

He will often do twice the work of a civilian, draw half the pay and still find ironic humor in it all.

He has seen more suffering and death then he should have in his short lifetime.

He has stood atop mountains of dead bodies, and helped to create them.

He has wept in public and in private, for friends who have fallen in combat and is unashamed.

[But not wept in public and in private, for innocent people he killed because He/She is unashamed.]

He feels every note of the National Anthem vibrate through his body while at rigid attention, while tempering the burning desire to 'square-away' those around him who haven't bothered to stand, remove their hat, or even stop talking. In an odd twist, day in and day out, far from home, he defends their right to be disrespectful. Just as did his Father, Grandfather, and Great-grandfather, he is paying the price for our freedom. Beardless or not, he is not a boy.

He is the American Fighting Man that has kept this country free for over 200 years.

[At the cost of many innocent lives lost eslewhere.]

He has asked nothing in return, except our friendship and understanding.

[He/She got paid to kill innocent people.]

Remember him, always, for he has earned our respect and admiration with his blood. For our military.

[Remember him/her as a bondage slave, killer and murderer with blood on their hands for our civilians.]

Prayer wheel for our military...please don't break it. Please send this on after a short prayer."Lord, hold our troops [militants, killers and murderers] in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen."

[Prayer wheel for our civilians...please don't break it. Please send this on after a short prayer. "The lord is our wonderful Universe, your lord is the Queen of England, the ring of power and the 300 club of the wealthiest people in the world. Don't protect them any longer. Certainly don't bless them and their families but take them to the War Criminal Court for trial for their selfish, criminal acts they perform for them in their time of greed.]

When you receive this, please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our ground troops [dead civilians] in Iraq and Afghanistan, sailors on ships, and airmen in the air [babies in their mothers arms, men and women in the street.] Pray for their safety and quick return [? pray for their safety but those that are dead won't return.] Remember the POWs in Iraq, pray that they will be released quickly and are being treated humanely.

[Remember the tortured and innocent scapegoats held in secret american prisons held indefinitely and even killed in custody.]

Pray for the families of the fallen soldiers [650,000 dead iraqi and untold deaths of thousands of innocent dead Afghanistani's] who are now facing one of the hardest things any of us will ever face, the loss of a loved one.

There is nothing attached. This can be very powerful. Of all the gifts you could give a US Soldier, Sailor, Marine, or Airman, prayer is the very best one.

[Nope! The real truth in brackets will set you free from your right wing, nationalist, religious bondage and the murder, mutilation, genocide, killing of innocents, rape pillage and plunder for the ruling class and their imperialism.]


Giant steps are what you take! Walking with Kylie'Moon'
600 of Australia's bravest demonstrators led by Kylie Moon stood staunch against the rebel NSW police Force demanding their civil and democratic rights to protest about the innocent killing of Iraqi citizens.

The Empire Strikes Back: Sydney anti-war rally
School children in uniforms, groups of young men and older protesters have gathered on one side of Town Hall while at least 200 police have gathered around the area.

Police violence fractures Peace movements?
"Young people should not be patronised, young people should not be told that they can't protest when there is a disgusting and inhumane war going on, and so I urge people, whether you're a student or not to come along and support us on the day."

Human shield describes 'sickening' scenes
An Australian 'human shield' who has fled Iraq into neighbouring Jordan has described the sight of bombed out buildings and distraught Iraqis as "sickening".

US disturbed over 'biased' reporting in Arab media! But the US lies to the world! How could anyone describe pre-emptive strikes on a sovereign nation, occupation, genocide, torture, and human rights abuse by the Coalition of the Killing in a positive light?

Aust militants join front line as Democrats propose anti-war Bill: Pre-emptive strikes? Bad example sets a theme for disaster at law says, professor Wrong Precedent, from the NSW Bad Law Association. Pre-emptive strikes. Does that mean you go on strike if you think your boss will attack you? Or does it mean that you can walk down George Street Sydney with an assault riffle and take out citizens you think may strike you?

More Australians pissed about militants in Iraq:
Public opinion has never supported war on Iraq and Afghanistan. Perhaps then, corporate media support for Australian militants, pre-emptive strikes and illegal and degrading war crimes against humanity, including occupation, genocide and torture involvement has fallen?

Australian Govt feels sorry for blowing up Iraq and donates $2 million to Iraqi children's appeal "We're in Basra right now as we speak , in fact I've had a note just this morning from our people in Basra and they are working today in Basra to restore water and to deliver clean water to as I say 100,000 children under the age of five," Ms Phillips said.

Coalition force 'surprised' by stiff resistance for food aid
About 4,000-5,000 allied forces have launched what they vowed would be an all-out blitz. "We're going straight through that city," a US Marine officer, who asked not to be named, said. "It will be a Hail Mary with guns ablazing."

US Shoots Coalition in the foot? IRAQ GENOCIDE!
A US Patriot anti-missile has downed a British Royal Air Force Tornado jet during an operation in the Persian Gulf. [No loss, they should shoot them all down as they're just killing machines.]

Australians don't support US military action: poll
The second Australia-wide poll since the war began has found most Australians disapprove of the United States using military force to depose Saddam Hussein.

Explosions rock Baghdad, jets overhead Iraq
BAGHDAD, March 20 [Rooters] A handful of explosions rocked Baghdad at dawn today as jets roared overhead, Iraqi anti-aircraft batteries opened up and air raid sirens sounded.

AUSTRALIA AT WAR! Moment of death...
"The opening stages of the disarmament of the Iraqi regime [? resource war on Iraq regime] have begun ," White House spokesman Ari Fleischer [should have] said minutes after the strikes. He said Bush would speak at 2.15pm (AEDT).

Hit the road Jack and don't you come back No War, Jack Straw, No War, No War! LONDON: Nick Buxton, organising the protest outside Mr Straw's house, said: "We got the message across that the war is going to have a very huge humanitarian impact and people are angry about this war."

Moment of death 'HoWARd'
JOHN Howard lost the war for public opinion as Australia braces to invade Iraq by the end of the week. With nationwide anti-war protests, and Labor scrapping 30 years of bipartisanship on sending troops overseas, the Coalition has failed all Australians.

Evidence that Howard was complicit in CIA, false flag, call to arms, Bali bombings War criminal John Howard was complicit in the call to arms - false flag operation - Bali bombings - instigated by the CIA - and the Coalition of the Killing - to bolster support - and quell dissent for their illegal and degrading resource wars in the Middle East.

War criminal Howard high-jacks HRCA to 'legitimise killing'
The Human Rights Council of Australia (HRCA) says it fears Prime Minister John Howard's comments in support of the execution of [CIA operative] Osama bin Laden show his eagerness to overturn three decades of national opposition to the death penalty.

PM lost in space! Pre-emptive Strikes & Star Wars Defence!!
War criminal PM backs missile defence investigation but he is not on his own. Bob Carr dubbed Darth Vader after draconian laws were introduced in NSW following John Howard's threats to strike first and ask questions later.

State terror units caused the terror!
The level of suspicion and surveillance created by the [US false flag operation and call to arms] Bali bombings, created by [ the Coalition of the Killing and Australian's complicity to go to war on Iraq] means that all Australian's suffer the loss of their human rights, civil rights and their democratic rights, as well as those Australian's who lost their life in Bali.

Al-Qa'ida or poor people without hope?
Anyone contemplating war without a UN sanction is nothing more than a common criminal and not acting in accordance with the law. Isn't Richardson the head of ASIO? A law enforcement agency? Al-Qa'ida is a Coalition of the Killing demon made up by the CIA. These people are just scapegoats, patsies, and peasants."

Doom gloom and 'Boom' Downer shakes the room?
"Optimism is better and so is 'constructive feedback' because using constructive feedback means that the negatives also have a role in the construction of a nation. In short we have all the time in world to solve problems properly and that is what our leaders should be focusing on when they decide to inform all Australians. Hey what's the rush?" He said.

Hypocrisy not Democracy? No Blood for Oil!
Howard has refused to back down on the threat of war despite hundreds of thousands of Australians rallying against it. The question is why?

Red paper classes Australia as terrorist suspects
Australia's old foreign policy red paper says Australians have become targets because their own government is being run by war criminals that are complicit in state terror, torture, murder, occupation and genocide.

Australia backs CIA Reichstag, Downer's propaganda
The Foreign Affairs Minister says the latest message from Osama bin Laden is worrying. [Just plain rubbish!]

UK Reid, Blair and the reichstag London threat!
The nature of the [alleged] terrorist threat to London is on the scale of the [USA false flag] September 11 attacks in the United States, the chairman of Britain's governing Labour Party said.

Bin Laden calls? CIA blind man's bluff!
A [US propaganda, fear-mongering] taped message purportedly from Osama bin Laden has warned Arab nations against supporting a war against Iraq but has branded Saddam Hussein an infidel.

The Australian Federal Opposition and Labor Party Leader, Simon Crean, has again warned the U.S. ambassador to stop meddling in Australian politics.

War: Part one The human cost
On the road to Basra, ITV was filming wild dogs as they tore at the corpses of the Iraqi dead. Every few seconds a ravenous beast would rip off a decaying arm and make off with it over the desert in front of us, dead fingers trailing through the sand, the remains of the burned military sleeve flapping in the wind. "Just for the record,'' the cameraman said to me. Of course. Because ITV would never show such footage.

Mandela speaks out against Bush, Blair
Former South African leader Nelson Mandela has lashed out at US President George W Bush's stance on Iraq, saying the US leader has no foresight, and cannot think properly.

All the way with (LPK) Love Peace and Kindness: Dalai Lama
Communication is a two way street. Threats and punishment solve nothing and serve none. In fact it is against the law in most countries to threaten or punish a person.

Hill defends decision to attack Iraq: Step by step?
FEDERAL Defence [War] Minister [Sinister] Robert Hill has defended the government's decision to send troops [ send militia] to the Persian Gulf [ to attack Iraq] in readiness for any [pre-emptive strike that would cause a] conflict with Iraq.

Pleas for peace ring the globe
Anti-war demonstrators turned out in their hundreds of thousands around the world on Saturday to protest against United States military preparations for an invasion of Iraq.

Not too late for Iraq peace, Blix says
But we all know that's rubbish now. The Coalition of the Killing were not seeking WMD in Iraq, they were there for their resource wars. So who gave the 'UN' and Blix the wrong information back then? War criminals!

George Bush's other poodle
John Howard, Australia's PM, is the mouse that roars for America, whipping his country into war fever and paranoia about terrorism within.

US prepares for trade talks with Australia but it's not worth it!
The office of the United States Trade Representative has started formally preparing its negotiating position for the first round of talks on a free trade agreement between Australia and the US.

First strike and you're out!
The ideology of a super loser? John Howard shocks the nation again. A nation who cannot believe Howard's stupidity following his [complicity in the CIA's false flag operation, the Bali bombing.]

UN charter doesn't reflect new self-defence needs: Hill?
The Defence [War] Minister, Robert Hill, says the United Nations' charter needs to be changed to help countries defend themselves against potential threats. [?] [Pre-emptive strikes on soveriegn nation states like Iraq and Afghanistan?]
