- ... absolute power corrupts absolutely. - Lord Acton
- All a man can betray is his conscience. - Joseph Conrad
- "We do it because we can," the military man
said smugly. And by such philosophy, the corporate American war machine
tries to take the world to its grave.
- The former general and recent Secretary of State Colin
Powell's words still ring in my ears: "We don't count the Iraqi dead,"
he said. Perhaps it was because he knew he couldn't count that high.
- For a month I've looked around for something positive
to say, something encouraging, uplifting, productive ... and failing that,
perhaps something consoling, some obvious explanation of the twisted perversion
that has wrapped its petrochemical tentacles around the throat of humanity
and keeps squeezing.
- Across the gray landscape of languid lies and malevolent
misconceptions, I see nothing to cling to. No ray of hope. Only lies, self-serving
twists of what used to be called logic. Freedom is no longer safe, they
tell us. You must have a number. And while you're at it, take this toxic
vaccine, and no, you won't be able to sue the manufacturer if you get sick.
Just do it, as the slogan commands us.
- The right to a fair trial is no longer guaranteed. You
can be put in jail or executed for reasons that can be kept secret. And
still, on the crumbling streets of America, most people go about their
business as if nothing has happened.
- Sensible people, who in the deepening darkness of their
own secret hearts must realize something has definitely happened, that
something definitely will happen. Sensible people, suddenly afraid to speak
what they really believe for fear their neighbors will overhear and tell
someone with a gun and a uniform, or worse, an employer with an important
contract who wants no employees who don't agree with the way things are.
And then, they think, paralyzed by fear, who will feed the kids? Scared
- Who would have thought that democracy would come to mean
tyranny? OK, Orwell. And many other now unpopular voices, never heard in
our manacled media.
- Who would have thought, when all was said and done, that
America would turn out to be the chief threat to the survival of all life
on this planet? But as the announcer always reminds us, this is why we
play the game. You never know how it will turn out.
- How it has turned out is like this.
- No one dares to speak the truth in America, because if
they do, they will be removed from the corrupt system of profit-making
that enables them to remain smug and secure (they think) in their never-paid-off
homes. Just think of all those well-paid journalists and broadcasters who
pretend to be such authorities on what's going on in the world.
- Not one of them dares to mention, as they wax opportunistically
compassionate over the quarter million dead from the suspicious tsunami
in the Indian Ocean, that a nearly equal number of equally innocent corpses
has been generated by their own hypocrisy in the gutters of various Fallujahs
in countries they can barely remember the names of. Nobody's even talking
about the continuing genocide in central Africa.
- Not one of them dares to mention that two brothers counted
more than 80 percent of the votes in the recent American election (and
both of them were publicly enthusiastic about re-electing the tyrant in
office), that there were discrepancies in the counting of those votes ONLY
in places where there was unverifiable computerized voting, and that poor
people everywhere were physically and mentally discouraged from going to
the polls. Or that even the candidate who lost didn't really object to
- Not one of them dares to mention that America, their
country, is deliberately killing its own soldiers by (1) putting them into
a poorly organized military deployment where they will likely be killed
by the very people they are trying to rape, kill, and intimidate into accepting
the corporate totalitarianism that the killers don't even realize they
are supporting, and (2) by polluting their bodies with dangerous ammunition
that will kill them with cancer a few short years down the road. Almost
no one realizes 10,000 Americans have died as a result of the first Gulf
War. A few of the pundits (are you listening, Mike Ruppert?) mention that
population reduction is a good idea, however, giving us all just a glimpse
of the blood in the teeth of their smiles.
- And not one of them dares to mention the contrived horror
of 9/11, and the self-serving lies that followed, the total coverup that
was called an investigation, and the vigilante hysteria that followed,
unleashing a mindless bloodlust to kill who they told us to kill, who just
happened to be people they wanted to steal from.
- We see from American behavior in Iraq - the endless and
deliberate killings of innocent bystanders, the indiscriminate bombing
of a population we insist we are rescuing, and the corrupt prevention of
independent reporting on the terrible crimes we are committing - that the
United States is a nation of conscienceless killers, who have absolutely
no regard for the welfare and safety of wholly innocent people who happen
to reside outside their borders. Americans hide their atrocious deeds in
self-serving rationalizations that nobody really believes, not even, I
suspect, the people who are uttering them.
- And we see from American behavior inside America - the
acceptance of their government's lies about 9/11, the wars in Afghanistan
and Iraq, and continuing promises of further invasions of other innocent
countries - that the United States is a nation of foul, cowardly, heartless,
psychotic and unprincipled murderers, who have blackmailed the rest of
the world into accepting their racist imperalism and aggression at the
point of their very big guns.
- There is no terror threat. It was invented by the Israelis
in the White House who wanted to take the focus off the genocide going
on in Israel. The 9/11 deception will not be solved until the Israeli component
of it is unearthed, and right now, that won't happen because the entire
9/11 skeptics movement is riddled with Israeli moles and Zionist apologists.
- How long will the world wait to do something about this
menace, now that it has been proven that no matter how many actual Americans
disapprove of this consumately sociopathic behavior, they are powerless
to stop the corporate war machine, which they support by their silence,
from plundering the planet into an irreversibly toxic condition.
- By their actions over the past century, Americans have
revealed themselves to be psycho killers in pursuit of profit at the expense
of everyone else on the planet.
- They must be stopped, and if Americans can't stop themselves,
then someone else must, for the benefit of what is good and right and noble
- The real terrorists are the Americans (and their sidekicks
the British, the Israelis and the Australians), and the rest of the world
needs to wake up to that before it's too late for everyone.
- If the United States were ever to consent to the auspices
of a genuinely honest World Court (which is why we won't), its leaders
would easily be convicted of widespread genocide and crimes against humanity,
and be sentenced to the maximum penalty.
- By their silent complicity, the American people are accessories
to all these horrendous crimes before, during, and after the fact, and
deserve the same punishment as its leaders.
- It's a little something to remember when on that fateful
day the world finally comes calling to repay America for the gifts it has
bestowed upon the world.
- Just don't say you didn't know. Because people with guns
- John Kaminski's Internet essays can be seen on hundreds
of websites around the world. They have been collected into two anthologies,
the latest of which is titled "The Perfect Enemy," about how
the Zionist-controlled U.S. government created the terrorist group knowns
as al-Qaeda. For more information go to http://www.johnkaminski.com/
