Impeachment alone does not solve the problem!
Impeachment alone does not solve the problem!
[June 15, 2008, 1:05 AM, Dear Jason Leopold, and David Swanson - Hello, and thank you for keeping the plebeians informed on what's going on in the impeachment and other arenas. You might find the following article of interest, and perhaps you might bring it to the notable Congressman's attention if you deem it appropriate. While I understand that even the impeachment may not get anywhere, but just as the issue is still forcibly being put on the Congressional record, I believe, similarly, the full issue must also be put on the table - at least for the record. Thanks very much for all your persistent efforts in doing what's right, and your writings to keep the ordinary peoples (like me) updated. Kind Regards, Zahir Ebrahim. ]
Let the people not forget, amidst all this hoopla and excitement over the 35 Articles of Impeachment against George W. Bush, the two-term 43rd President of the mighty superpower United States of America, that:
1) A new set of monumental criminals are ready and waiting in the wings.
2) Who will re-instate the devastated tabula rasa of innocent nations? Who will bring sanity back to the lives of the barely living who have seen DU and Daisy Cutters rained down upon their loved ones? Who will pay them fair and just compensation for their cataclysmic loss, pain and suffering?
And those today waiting in the wings have each indicated their desire to nuclear decimate Iran. Pakistan can't be too far behind judging from the continuous mantras of "loose nukes" and "terrorists" emanating at an accelerated pace from its mightiest think-tanks.
3) Therefore, unless you kill the DNA, this round of 'Roundup' is only going to temporarily do away with this crop of deadly blood-sucking weeds!
4) And while for the Americans, it has taken some 4000 to 10000 dead, some say considerably more if the paid mercenaries of the private armies are counted, plus the 3000 innocent who died on 911 under the rubble of controlled demolition, the innocent dead in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the poisoning of their habitat and their DNA with DU for all future times, has taken at least three to four orders of magnitude greater toll today, and forever mounting in the future.
As part of atonement that barely even reaches the level of sincerity that a victim can even begin to accept, first in principle, and then in execution, full restitution and compensation for all this pain and suffering must equally be on the table!
Otherwise, perhaps this impeachment exercise may fool the American public about the famed American democracy in action – it fools no one else!
Least of all the victims – from Cambodia to Iraq, and heavens forbid, now Iran and Pakistan. The impeachment of Nixon did as much for Laos and Vietnam, as impeachment of Bush will do for Iraq and Afghanistan.
5) A bunch of Zionofascist criminals can so easily hijack a superpower nation with a 'legal' coup d'etat that isn't even recognized as such – something more than just impeachment is necessary!
The system is not only broken, it was crippled at birth – for it is so easily hijackable – from Wounded Knee to Iran, with new "Pearl Harbors" cleverly used for “imperial mobilization” from the USS Maine to 911 to the new nookular '911' that President Bush keeps warning the Americans and the world about in these ominous words as late as February 13, 2008: “Good morning [America]. At this moment, somewhere in the world, terrorists are planning new attacks on our country. Their goal is to bring destruction to our shores that will make September the 11th pale by comparison.” See Project Humanbeingsfirst's Press Releases of May 11, 2008, and June 12, 2008, and its underlying fundamentals in “From Balance of Terror to Unilateral Terror on the Grand Chessboard!”
Unless recognition of all of these afore-stated points is driven home as part of this 'spraying of Roundup' on this crop of monumental criminals, new set of killer-weeds lie just beneath the surface to carry on with the imperative of spreading the imperial virus of “primacy and its geostrategic imperatives”.
It is one continuous predatory imperative, from the Truman Doctrine, to the Carter Doctrine, to the Reagan Doctrine, and now to the Bush Doctrine. What did impeachment of Richard Nixon ever accomplish or deter, never mind restore to America's millions of untold and unaccounted victims in Asia and South America?
Unless the mainstream embedded newsmedia, the embedded think-tankers and policy planners, the embedded oped-writers, the embedded NYT to WP editorial chain, the embedded ABC to FOX news chain, and the 'ubermensch' masterminds from William Kristol to all the PNAC participants to Donald Rumsfeld to Dick Cheney to Zbigniew Brzezinski to Henry Kissinger to Paul Wolfowitz et. al., are equally consigned to Guantanamo Bay, all of their considerable wealth and fortunes and trusts confiscated, and the monumental criminals of humanity among them – as determined in trials similar to the one accorded to Eichmann in Jerusalem by his surviving victims and their traumatized families – are given full 'enemy combatant' protocol, America's democracy is only the Godfather's democracy!
The sons quietly takes over from the forcibly retired godfather, but with the full team intact, with all the financiers, power-brokers, policy-makers, and puppetmasters still closely holding the strings, the newsmedia still ready to toot their mantras, and all ready to go back into the global business of “full spectrum dominance” to construct the “new world order” of “one world government” after re-constituting the front faces of their family!
With that reluctant re-facing as the last fallback option of the hectoring hegemons, please mark these humble words: before this Administration is ever impeached, the grotesque reality which has been so systematically and painstakingly put in place over the past seven years, will surely see the COG machinery running this country! Before anyone can become a real threat to this status quo, and if the threat cannot be deflected someway, and no sacrificial lamb can be burnt at stake to soothe the anger of the plebeians now seeking blood, the key harbingers of such a threat will be made to “sleep with the fishes”!
All it takes is to make an offer that one cannot refuse – and the matters will end up right back on the treadmill of dog and pony show, much like the Iran-Contra riveting television entertainment that was enjoyed all over America better than any Dan Brown novel ever will be!
Having said all that – which of course ought not come as a surprise to anyone except the most Polyanish – kudos to the immensely courageous David Swanson and the untiring persistent efforts of all those who are still endeavoring to 'spray this crop of weeds'! A very special kudos to the conscionable Congressman from Ohio who is still able to muster the Chutzpah to attempt impeachment – knowing fully well that it will go absolutely nowhere! But at least it gets documented in the official paperwork of the Congress – for whatever that's really worth. A respite, however brief, is arguably still better than none!
And having also said that, the Articles of Impeachment introduced by the good Congressman from Ohio cannot absolve the United States Congress itself of its own culpability and equal willing participation in the supreme monumental crime of “imperial mobilization”.
One given to reflection and study well understands how the American peoples are continually fooled, indoctrinated, and managed. One need only read the following Project Humanbeingsfirst report “Weapons of Mass Deception – The Master Social Science” to get a good understanding of both “Manufacturing Consent” and “Manufacturing Dissent” among the larger plebeian Western society by its ruling elite. The Congress however, comprises the ruling elite. They are generally the third category of peoples identified by Hitler, as those able to think critically who are purposefully trained in the ways of empire, or co-opted to join and participate in the running of 'empire' with the allure of its riches. The Congress isn't “the crowd of simpletons and the credulous” of the American masses.
Therefore, it is more than slightly disingenuous to lump the fabricated 'misleading' of the Congress with the genuine misleading of the American public. The Congress wasn't misled – unless it comprises only full spectrum C grade morons from Yale, an arguable premise which I refuse to accept – it was, and still is, just as complicit in every single supreme crime that the Congressfolks now solely apportion to their leader.
From the very control of the purse strings that funds the war-mongering, to the passing of oppressive laws and unchallenged acceptance of Executive Orders that now enables the police-state, to the granting of carte-blanche to bomb Afghanistan and Iraq to smithereens – the Congress willingly did it all! If an ordinary plebeian like this scribe can narrate it all in his 2003 book as the DU bombs on Iraq were falling, and can take a bold stand at his own front door and say NO to the State's security apparatus, it takes Congress another 5 years to come to that conclusion, ex post facto – when all the faits accomplis have already been constructed and the “Mission [truly] Accomplished”?
Either this scribe is so ingeniously smart that he knew it all, in which case he and half a million other ordinary peoples in America who said NO to George W. Bush from 2001-2002 onwards until today at considerable risks to themselves, should be the Congress – the new Peoples' Congress. Or the House and Senate are equally complicit in the aiding and abetting of supreme crimes against humanity. They could well have said NO when ordinary peoples in America dared to say NO! Look at this picture of a 10 year old saying NO in February 2003 along with tens of thousands of ordinary Americans!
The Articles of Impeachment that the honorable Congressman from Ohio imputes solely to his President, equally apply to impeaching every single Congressman and Congresswomen, except, to this scribe's humble knowledge, Congresswoman Barbara Lee for her uncommonly courageous solo stand on the very first imperial mobilization to Afghanistan immediately after 911 – when she alone stood up to boldly say NO!
That first enabling seed, that green light to bomb Afghanistan and the passing of Patriot Acts without even reading them, enabled it all. And the blame, as per the precedent set at Nuremberg – all culpability for aggression, and “all the evil that follows”, is to the first aggression and to its enablers – rests jointly with the nation of United States of America and its entire ruling elite who together railroaded “the crowd of simpletons and the credulous” of the American masses no differently than Hitler after his “Operation Canned Goods”.
It is further remarkable that none of the Articles of Impeachment introduced by the Honorable Congressman from Ohio even suggest a controlled demolition on 911, or that it could have been an inside job and another 'operation canned goods' as no other rational explanation suffices. The Articles continue to mimic the same premise as untenably asserted by both the White House and the Pentagon from the very day of 911, that it was an invasion from abroad, rather than perhaps an insidious coup from within.
What kind of clever wool pulling is this Impeachment game which isn't even all that clever? I suppose the audience for it is exclusively the American public!
No offense is intended to the honorable Congressman from Ohio in this scribe 'calling a spade a spade'! Once again, Project Humanbeingsfirst humbly thanks even this brief respite if it can be effectively afforded to the miserable victims, playing whatever games necessary as permitted in the existing system!
Just don't let it fool anyone that it amounts to anything more than what it really is.
