DC, the War Crime Capital


Washington D.C. is the capital of a war criminal class that harvests the blood of Americans to fight wars abroad for resource control and domestic psychological control.  War time stimulus measures are routinely implemented to deceive the masses into a state of shock and perpetual mobilization towards external colonization against target groups whose natural resources are coveted by Washington and western oil conglomerates that desire theft of third-world colonial peoples’ land to implement strategic pipelines that run through Central Asia.

Rice flowing from Asia to rebuild post war Japan and other such factors influenced United States intervention in Vietnam. 

That nation was divided along the sixteenth parallel in 1954 by Russia, China and the United States pending an election that was supposed to occur in 1956 that would reunify the North and the South.

The CIA didn’t allow the election to happen and installed a secret police dictatorship.

What followed? The napalming, bombing of South Vietnam and the CIA assassinations of revolutionary Vietcong and their families for standing against colonialism.

911 provided the excuse for the American government to attack Afghanistan and Iraq to control oil resources in the Middle East and Central Asia. The U.S. installed various military bases in Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Kyrgystan and made millions for private contracts with firms such as Kellogg Brown and Root to build U.S. Army Bases in these countries in addition to airbases to bomb nations, including Iraq.  

Bases now abound in over 1000 nations and supplement war-time stimulus measures in which targeted populations are massacred by United States and NATO forces. Major bases for initiating destructive warfare include South Korea, Germany, the Balkans, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Saudi Arabia among others.

Leaders in Washington routinely invoke the idea that there are external threats to the nation in a cynical indoctrination of the public in which the resources of other nations become securitized under executive doctrines as the property of Americans.

Weapons company profits shift wealth from the public sector into private hands and tax the wealth of the majority of working and middle class Americans while jobs lack for the poor, destitute and unemployed.

Assassinations of civilians are a routine occurrence in counterinsurgency warfare doctrine. CIA has assassinated or planned for the assassination of over 50 foreign leaders, in Chile, Iraq, Libya, Panama, El Salvador. Assassinations or plots to wipe out leaders can take the form of hands, off, step-away tactics used to blow up airplanes containing CIA targets or it can take the form of backing military factions whose dislike for populist generals leads them to want to assassinate these leaders. The CIA will use death squad assassins to murder political dissidents and religious practitioners of liberation theology such as Archbishop Romero, but they also take part in brutal assassinations of politicians and generals who are either resisting not sufficiently going along with foreign policy objectives of the military industrial complex or the CIA-mafia criminal syndicate network, such as Rafael Trujillo (Dominican Republic), Ngo Dinh Diem (Vietnam).The CIA functions as an appendage to the mass murder war machine and protects the wealth of the Wall Street elite.

Innocent civilian lives are snuffed in an absolute disregard for human rights, sovereignty. Women and children are massacred by the United States military and the CIA which targets them for assassination via operation Phoenix style counterinsurgency concentration camp programs.

Anticommunism is the basic function of these U.S. policies around the world which massacre third world indigenous nations when not interfering with their electoral processes or damaging their infrastructure. 

Arms deals are a routine factor in explaining this process for which indigenous rights are snuffed at the expense of gun profits, Euro-racist conquest and perpetual war under the national flag that supplements killer teams taking innocent lives for the blood of a dollar made for the profit share-holders returns. 

The ugliness that characterizes U.S. imperial war also includes torture in a secret system of bases where men are tortured without trial and due process of law under the U.S. Constitution. 
U.S. bombs are a routine factor in terminating innocent lives and explains how the profit motive erases any value of other races as expendable.

Protesters habituating drone base sites where command and control systems function in routine slaughter of innocent civilians in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq the Philippines and Niger are treated as criminals and meted with heavy federal prison sentences while sociopathic desk murderers following the orders of state war criminals are free to kill random civilians whose faces they have never seen.

A police state will use rationales for the extermination of other groups based upon their race and generalize that attacks against that race that liken them to animals or insects so that rational thought is short-circuited towards slaughtering, confiscating their wealth and/or moving that group into concentration camps. 

Millions of dollars have been spent by the Pentagon for the initiation of the process of genocidal domestic counterinsurgency within the U.S. in the form of paramilitary teams that include various federal, state and local agencies.  The plan may very well be to meet domestic unrest to suppress the U.S. public in a war of genocide as has been the historic case in third world nations under U.S. police-state imperial control. 

The Office of Public Safety functioned as a CIA front and is a subdivision of the USAID, which conducts civic action programs serving as cover for CIA police state infiltration of target groups that resist American Imperialist genocide. Informant cadre networks are constructed that target and assassinate revolutionary and guerilla leaders in general.

Slavery and war resemble each other as the Guantanamo detainees—many of these men were sold for bounty to the U.S./NATO by the Northern Alliance warlords. These men are still in prison camps in Bagram and Guantanamo and secret sites in Somalia where they are tortured via water boarding and forced feeding.

The U.S. congress should re-assert their power to declare war so that they can reject permanent endless war that has no place in a constitutional republic where these powers are used to deny freedoms, including the fourth amendment. A lack of privacy and a fear to speak out against war crimes due to possible detainment under the National Defense Authorization Act under the guise that political dissidents aid the omnipotent enemy of “terror” is a lack of fundamental human dignity for U.S. citizens.

A permanent war threat state is not conducive to constitutional governance nor is it amenable to a democratic society.

Endless enemies to mobilize the population against creates fear, hatred and armaments sales as new weapons are tested out on subject groups whether in Iraq, Panama, Vietnam or Afghanistan.

Contrary to what most people believe about the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, it was not about apprehending those who perpetrated the 911 attacks but rather to establish a pipeline to funnel Caspian Sea oil from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan and to Pakistani ports near the Indian Ocean.

Article I section 8 of the U.S. Constitution was designed to restrain the power of the Executive by making sure that the power to declare war remained within the sovereign assembly.

It is expected that an imperialist war criminal nation that murdered millions in Indochina and Iraq will find Bradley Manning guilty of committing crimes to mask the real crime which is mass murder in multiple countries. Manning’s exposures only reveal a kernel of what the U.S. is responsible for globally through covert operations and direct military interventions in El Salvador, Guatemala, Panama, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Iraq and Afghanistan.
