We live in a historic era

That is true. The country of my birth is waging
WWIII. Most do not realize what is unfolding, but
it will sooner than later launch a greater war.

We must oppose them with our bodies. During the
1960s-Vietnam War most US embassies were under
protests and seize. they are a symbol of a terrorist
regime, and should have hundrends upon hundrends of
thousands of people massing in front of their doors.

Every major war industry should be blockaded by even more
people, and the centres of the military ...Pentagon,
et al should have millions of people standing in front
to shut them down. In America, the only industry that is
booming is the war industries.

To all Sailors, refuse to let American warships be used
to kill, maim and destroy peoples lives and their

You can have a great impact on stopping this war.

To the soldiers and Marines. Do you see any Bush, Cheney,
Rumsfeld, Obama family members serving in combat?

Refuse to to fight, and may whole units turn around and
arrest their command staff. Ditto for the Air Force, and

If our government will not prosecute them then
lead the ships to the Netherlands and escort them and
our political leaders, the CIA, Blackwater criminals,
especially Eric Prince(who has moved to Dubai to avoid
prosecution) to the international criminal court.

If that court takes no action, then a duly constituted
peoples court...with judges and lawyers must be set up
to hear the evidence. issue indictments, issue arrest
warrants and begin proceedings.

America is waging war in Asia, the Middle East, Africa,
Central and South America to preserve a totally corrupt

As Major-General Smedly D. Butler('War is a Racket')
pointed out the military does the work of the bankers,
oil men et al; I have posted what he said before, and
here are my favourite excerpts:

'War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe,
as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people.
Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is
conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of
the masses.

There isn't a trick in the racketeering bag that the military
gang is blind to. It has its "finger men"(generals and politicians-mine)
to point out enemies, its "muscle men"(military) to destroy enemies,
its "brain men" to plan war preparations,(the 'supreme crime' in international
law, per Nuremberg-mine) and a "Big Boss" Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism.

Of his own career he said this,

It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison.
Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty- three years and four
months in active military service as a member of this country's
most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned
ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period,

I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business,
for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it.
Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of
my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended
animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with
everyone in the military service. I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico,
safe for American oil interests in 1914.

I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is
long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American
sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went
its way unmolested. During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room
would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate
his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents'.

and this:

'In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At
least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States
during the World War. That many admitted their huge blood gains in their income
tax returns. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows.

How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them dug a trench? How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a rat-infested
dug-out? How many of them spent sleepless, frightened nights, ducking shells
and shrapnel and machine gun bullets? How many of them parried a bayonet thrust
of an enemy? How many of them were wounded or killed in battle?

Out of war nations acquire additional territory, if they are victorious.
They just take it. This newly acquired territory promptly is exploited by
the few – the selfsame few who wrung dollars out of blood in the war. The
general public shoulders the bill.

And what is this bill?

This bill renders a horrible accounting. Newly placed gravestones. Mangled bodies. Shattered minds. Broken hearts and homes. Economic instability. Depression and all its attendant miseries. Back-breaking taxation for generations and generations.

This last para is what we are seeing today. More US troops are killing themselves
than are being killed in Combat. And at least 18 veterans in the US take their
own lives to end their pain.

So, we must do all that we can...and above all add the Banking families-I mean those that really rule and profit, not your local banker.

My writing is not the best, or as eloquent as some, but it comes from the anger
of experiencing war, and realizing that we were lied to, and that our leaders
are utterly corrupt.

Good day
