The latest massacre by US military personnel of innocent people in Afghanistan provides another demonstration as to why it is imperative that the American people stop deferring to the authority of the
Today, as Americans vote in their presidential election, and may well choose to install the anointed successor of warmonger Obama, the even more hawkish Hillary Clinton who has promised that on becoming president she will immediately escalate military action in Syria with the likely consequence of kicking off a global conflict, we learned that U.S. forces in Afghanistan have killed at least 30 civilians, many of whom were children. Another 25 people were wounded. Of course, this is on top of all people killed by those much vaunted American 'precision weapons' that can locate and destroy the only wedding party, funeral or child naming ceremony in a 1000 square mile area, as well as mistaking hospitals and schools for guerilla bases and ammunition dumps. These random victims of U.S. bombs and drone strikes that have brought the death toll from U.S. interventionism in Afghanistan to more than 200,000, with many more seriously wounded and maimed.
The latest massacre seems to have been a typical US military cock up, poor communications, poor decision making and a trigger happy style of gung ho leadership. Afghan government forces, assisted by U.S. troops, launched a raid on a house in a densely populated village where a Taliban commander was believed to be attending a meeting. The soldiers got trapped in a narrow dead-end street, where they began taking enemy fire from surrounding homes.
So, what did they do to save their necks, Take cover and shoot back? Oh no, these guys were Uncle Sam's finest, they know how to deal with ambushes in densely populated urban areas? They called in air strikes, which meant firing missiles into a neighborhood filled mostly with entirely innocent non - combatants. Those missiles killed 32 human beings, including children.
The U.S. military’s position is the standard one: The military regrets the
And we should not overlook the most important fact: If U.S. troops had not still been active in Afghanistan, there never would have been a U.S. bombing raid on that neighborhood. I find the religious fanaticism and fundamentalism abhorrent, but if Afghans want to be ruled by these brutal, medievalist arseholes, that's their business.
So how do survivors of the massacre feel about what happened? When they were sure it was safe they took to the streets chanting “Death to America!” and other anti - western politics. Americans should bear that in mind next time there is a terrorist attack in the United States.
Actually this latest incident was not entirely one sided. Despite the bombing attack, two U.S. soldiers — Captain Andrew Byers and Sgt. First Class Ryan Gloyer were killed in the gunfight.
What did they die for? It was not to protect the freedom and values of their country's citizens, not to keep their loved ones safe. They died for nothing, the same thing that 60,000 U.S. soldiers died for in Vietnam and 3000 in Iraq. Saddam Huussein, The Taliban, they posed no direct threat to the USA or its people. The freedom and security of the American people have nothing to do with the war in Afghanistan. The war and all America's other recent wars have been about corporate profits and the geopolitical ambitions of Washington's neocon hawks. The conflict in Afghanistan is nothing more than a civil war. It may seem insane that a significant portion of the population support the Tsaliban, until you remember the Taliban are battling to oust a regime that has been installed into power by the U.S. government. They may be brutal, oppressive tyrants, the people seem to be saying, but at least they're our brutal, oppressive tyrants
Once the U.S. presidential race is over, a race in which the 16-year-old war in Afghanistan has barely been mentioned as one side were horrified that the other side's candidate once said 'pussy' while the other, perfectly reasonably, tried to get mainstream media to cover stories related to the opposing candidate being a war criminal, traitor, thief, liar and general cvnt, the American people can, if the woman touted as front runner by the 'liberals' who believe in bombing backward countries for world peace is elected, look forward to a continuing U.S. occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq. With Hillary Clinton in The White House there will be more U.S. interventionism, accomplishing nothing positive and only generating more hatred of 'the west' in general and the USA in particular.
Democrats Russia Hacked Us and Failed Recount Campaign is Political Suicide.
The US Democratic Party’s inability to accept that they lost the Presidency to Donald Trump is turning into a slow polictical sucicide. The party that has always been quick to scream ‘conspiracy theorist’ to discredit critics of its dealings with oversreas governments and foreign billionaires like Soros has revealed in its efforts to overturn the result by claimING that Russian hacking influenced voters in favour of Trump.
FBI Drops Hints They Are Ready to INDICT Hillary Clinton
Sources close to the FBI investigation into Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's offences relating to national security when she was Secretary of State say the Feds are ready to indict the frontrunner in the nomination process on charges relating to classified information.
Yes, the Panama Papers Could Really End Hillary Clintonâ€™s Campaign
We've been chronicling the downfall of Hillary Clinton, from her seemingly unassailable position as the anointed successor to Barack Obama, whose path to first the Democratic Party nomination and then the Presidency itself had been carefully planned and all obstacles removed. The fixers and deal makers had reckoned without two factors however, Bernie Sanders and Mrs. Clinton's poor image with voters, a result of her spoiled little rich girl arrogance and the incompetence she showed in office as Secretary of State.
Clinton E-mails Show When Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton Allowed George Soros To Dictate Foreign Policy
A set of e-mail messages included in the latest batch of Hillary Clinton documents released by Wikileaks (the September 2015 State Department dump) show that while Secretary of State of the United States, Mrs. Clinton received direct orders on U.S. foreign policy from the Hungarian-American billionaire George Soros, who has made a fortune out of manipulating markets (and trashed the economies of several third world countries in the process.)
Obama's Legacy Is "Unbridled Abuse Of Executive Power, Completely Outside The Rule Of Law"
Two new congressional reports conclude senior military officials skewed information about the war to make it look like it was going better. The unanswered question is why.
Rand Paul PROVED Why Hillary Should Be In PRISON.
Whatever political colour they paint themselves, the establishment stick together and whenever the peasants are revolting by exposing the scandals of elitist lawlessness they close ranks and cover up the most heinous crimes. It is therefore newsworthy when a member of the establishment attacks another, as US Senator Rand Paul has done, accusing Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton of crimes including perjury, fraud, theft, corruption, conspiracy.
Democracy Murdered In France
I'm hearing very disturbing news from the French regional elections, predicting that the Front National, comfortable winners in last week's first round of regional elections, hasve been routed in all regions. For that to happen, and to happen through a massive increase in turnout, suggests electoral fraud on a hughe scale. Or has France joined Britain in adopting the Islamic version of democracy, which is one man one vote, one Imam one thousand votes.
Who Runs America, The White House Or The Shadow Government?
Reports of President Barack Obamaâ€™s meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit over the weekend do not look right in the context of yet another blitz of provocative rhetoric from The Pentagon and the Department of Defence towards Moscow. In view of the USA's constant push towards all out war with Russia, one has to ask who is in control: Obama or the generals?
Donald Trump is portrayed as a clown by mainstream media and his combover is the silliest I have ever seen. Still, he's a billionaie so I don't suppose he gives a flying fuck what The Daily Stirrer thinks of him. Not that we think he is all bad, anyone who attacks Obama's global naziism trade deals, TTIP and TPP mush have some good points.
How Mainstream Media And The Major Political Parties Are Making Sure Voters Do not Hear The Voices Of Politics' Most Powerful Critics
As the General Election campaign starts to heat up, we try to shift focus away from the squabbling between Conservative and Labour about who can make the most promises they have no intention of keeping and to the real issues concerning jobs, social breakdown , mass immigration, and loss of national sovereignty.
US Presidents Of The Past warned Against Secret, Shadow Government.
By now it should be obvious that peacemake, joybringer and putative aquatic pedestrian Barack Hussein Obama was never really in charge of the US Government. Whatever Obama said would happen, all the American government's policies ensured the opposit would happen. The embedded article thows some light on how the US government really works
The American Political System Is "Not A Democracy Or Constitutional Republic" - Thiel
The state of democracy in the USA has become a hot topic of conversation in American business circles in recent years. While President Barack Hussein Obama, not so much a man as an ego on long skinny legs, has increasingly been inclined to rule by executive order in the manner of a despot or tyrant, even Obama's fiercest critics have to admit the American electoral system seems increasingly capable of delivering only political paralysis ...
