America is a warrior state, a serial aggressor, unaccountable for unparalleled high crimes against peace because of public ignorance and indifference.
Americans are sublimely unaware of their nation’s history. Its so-called war of independence substituted new management for old. Everything changed but stayed the same.
Imperial America enslaved Black Africans, exterminated its native people, stole their land and resources, stole half of Mexico, followed by Cuba, the Philippines, Guam, Samoa, Hawaii, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Canal Zone, Puerto Rico and other territories.
Peace candidate Woodrow Wilson turned pacifist Americans into raging German haters, getting the war he wanted. A generation of European youths perished.
Wall Street and UK bankers bankrolled Hitler’s rise to power. Franklin Roosevelt provoked Japan to attack America, a war it didn’t want and knew it couldn’t win. Today it’s a US colony. So is Europe.
Too few Americans know all US post-WW II wars were lawless acts of aggression – 9/11 was state-sponsored false flag terrorism.
Obama didn’t kill bin Laden. He died of natural causes in December 2001, widely reported at the time. He had nothing to do with 9/11, nor did Saudi Arabia.
Bush waged unprovoked naked aggression on Afghanistan and Iraq. Obama continues his wars, waging them from day one in office, bombing seven countries throughout his tenure: Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia.
Endless wars rage. US special forces death squads operate in 135 countries. Millions of corpses attest to America’s barbarity.
On Memorial Day, the nation honors its war dead, ignoring its responsibility for gratuitous mass slaughter throughout its odious history, waging endless wars of choice for profit and dominance.
The lessons of two world wars weren’t learned. A third may end life on earth.
