Back Again Through
The Hourglass Darkly

Jim Kirwan
Six years of mindless wars, brutal invasions and savage conquests both here and abroad, have gone into the history books, but it's been nine-long-years since this first began to take on the official shape of U.S. foreign and domestic policy. Hundreds of thousands of people wrote about every aspect of this nightmare, and millions upon millions read the articles and watched the videos-and yet to this day not one single setback has been recorded against the traitors that have made the US, together with our "special" partner Israel, into the largest most egregious Outlaw Nation since the Roman Empire. Here is some of what I tried to say about it in 2003:
"How did it happen that we came to find ourselves in this deep dark place that seems to border on World War III. How, in just over two years have we come so far down the ladder of civilized behavior, even as we continue at breakneck speed toward ethical and financial bankruptcy on a scale heretofore unseen and unknown? (1)
There have been hundreds of thousands of prominent people, activists of all kinds, and thousands upon thousands of ordinary people that have been outraged, frustrated and deeply wounded by each new cut that has been used to kill this nation and destroy any chance for a return to anything-like-prosperity.
Despite the millions upon millions of people that this undertaking threatens, mutilates or kills-nothing changes except the depth of the DEBT, and the size of the population directly affected-which now includes almost everyone who is not an ordained member of the string-pulling class of "special people" to whom no laws have ever applied.
When ordinary people look at what has happened, why can they not understand what is really going on? Part of the reason is habit, and part is 'tradition.' Neither has much to do with what we are really doing to millions of other people in places that are not ours 'to enter' or 'control.' But when you realize just how many times we've done this to the rest of the planet, and in how many places: anyone with a brain would have to stop and question what is taking place: Yet Americans have still not done that.
Between 1803 and 1867 we "purchased the nation." Louisiana Purchase in 1803, from France; Florida in 1819 from Spain; in 1845 Texas was annexed. In 1846 Oregon was ceded from the UK. 1848 Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Utah and western Colorado were 'purchased' from Mexico following the Mexican War. 1853, Southern Arizona and New Mexico were purchased from Mexico, and in 1867 Alaska was purchased from Russia.
Beginning with the Monroe Doctrine in 1822; Cuba, Argentina, Peru, Nicaragua, Uruguay, five invasions of Panama, by 1857 back to Nicaragua, Uruguay again in 1858, Nicaragua again in1867. Overseas our policies looked like this: In 1827, we hunted pirates in the Greek Islands, 1831 we destroyed an Argentine settlement in the Falklands, 1832 we entered Sumatra to punish natives that had plundered an American ship (300 died, two Americans were killed). In 1840 the Navy began sending warships on 'scientific expeditions' in the Pacific; Fiji and Samoa were targeted. In 1843 Canton China, and again in 1844 to crush a Chinese riot against imperialists. 1854-55 US & British ships landed in Shanghai, and later fought with pirates in Hong Kong. In 1856, during the second Opium War between China and Britain, the US sent three ships; 500 Chinese were killed seven Americans died.
1853, Commodore Perry demands that Japan open itself to trade, after numerous incursion in Japan, by 1894 the Japanese were intimidated into allowing the Straits of Shimonoseki to be used for foreign shipping. These kinds of events continued right up to the beginning of the US Civil War, that ended with more than two percent of the population (the equivalent of 6 million), dead. That too was another diplomatic failure.
1871, Korea; 1885, Guatemala, 1891 the Bering Strait, 1893 the overthrow of Hawaii's Monarchy, that ended with annexation in 1898. 1899, it was back again to Nicaragua, Panama and Columbia. 1899, Spain ceded the Philippines to the US for $20 million, but the Philippinos wanted independence. That war killed 4,273 Americans and 20,000 Philippino soldiers, plus 500,000 civilians. By 1904 the Navy was sent to Morocco, in 1905 the first of four more interventions went into Honduras. In 1906 back to Cuba, for three years, in 1910 another overthrow of Nicaragua's government. Troops had to be stationed in Nicaragua from 1910-1934, to prevent our puppet government from being overthrown.
1912, troops were sent to China, 1914 the US blocked a revolution in the Dominican Republic. 1914-1917, US troops participated in the Mexican-American War. 1915-1934, US troops stationed in Haiti to interrupt chronic insurrections. 1916-1924 Marines occupied the Dominican Republic during the perpetual instability that followed 28 revolutions in the previous 50 years. The history of these crimes and interventions just goes on and on. (5)
Howard Zinn wrote in-detail about this in "A People's History of the United States" and there's an abbreviated review in Issue #53 of ADBUSTERS magazine (May/ June, 2004). No wonder people think it's a "tradition" for American men (and women) to go to war.
The point is that the USA has been anything but free or democratic in its foreign policies even before 'we were born,' (there was also the 400 year war with the native population that ended with something like 69 million killed). Now those policies are about to come back here, to finally take root where so much of this all began.
The question is why do Americans not see that they have given the keys to their lives to traitors, to murderers, to con-men and liars? Throughout the last nine years we have stood idly by while the same people continue to steal our jobs, our savings, our retirement funds, even the value of the US dollar has lost 95 % of its value since it was created back in 1913.
We have lost access to real medical care and are being held hostage to criminally-driven insurance rackets that are extorting money for "insurance" that does not work, and that will not pay when that money is needed by the policy-holders. We have no education system anymore, no protection whatsoever for our food and water supplies, for the viability of the soil or the breathability of the air. Our food is as toxic as are the holdings of the banks and financial institutions that have stolen not just our money but the whole system of finance and credit that supposedly exists to protect our money and our investments ­ Ha! There is nothing which the government has not taken from us ­ and yet we STILL do not complain. We have no freedom of speech, no redress for grievances, no right to own or bear arms, no right to privacy of any kind: we are in fact now wholly owned slaves of the Corporation which this nation became in 1913, when the Federal Reserve took over the United States in everything but name.
"WE" own nothing, not the land that many of us thought we bought, not the money that we believe is ours, whether it's in our pockets or in the banks. We're not even people any longer, we are property of the Corporation that owns this country, and those that own it also own us. We have no rights and there is no Republic; we in fact are living in a fascist state that we did not want and have never been asked to approve of. But those are facts.
Who is responsible? We are responsible every time they "DO" something to us that goes unanswered. On the personal side; "Everytime" they threatened or take away anything or search us without a warrant, publicly beat or Taser civilians without just cause and with no recourse under the so-called law, for anything resulting from those treatments, including death. Publicly we have utterly failed to hold anyone to account for all the treasons committed in this "time-of-war" against the elections process, against the constitutional requirement for impeachment charges to be brought when officers of the government have clearly violated either their oaths of office or the laws of this Republic. Internationally we have stood by while tens of millions of people have died in our 18 year war on Iraq, not-to-mention the Afghans, the Pakistanis, the Palestinians, the Lebanese, the Iranians, and the list just keeps on getting longer-while too many of us continue with our "private" lives.
Here is what will happen to us, here in the United States of America, if we do not soon begin to change this situation. This is what we have bequeathed to tens of millions of people the world over, and now it looks as if it's our turn to see what it's like on the other side of the guns and in the bombsights of our own planes and artillery. (2)
For Nine Years we have been silent in the face of tyranny, treachery, treason and death all around us. Any people that can remain that indifferent to the plight of millions of their fellow human beings ­ deserve everything that we are about to receive.  
Many ask: "What can I do, I'm just one person what can I do to change anything?" I suggest you pick a topic of your choice, something that you are passionate about and take it to everyone that needs to know. Call local television and radio stations, go to the local offices of your so-called representatives and DEMAND that they change what they're doing ­ don't do that over the phone, do it in person. Assign yourself just an hour a day, every day, to educate yourself and to act upon what you discover about whatever sets fire to your soul. I recently answered a piece of blatant propaganda sent by my "Representative." I answered her on the web, paragraph, by paragraph ­ so that she and those who disapprove of her can see that not everyone agrees with her, or those choices that she says she is making "for us". (3)
Things like this have to become commonplace, and not the exception. Pick up that torch ­ ask questions and do it every day-just one hour-but every day! These people supposedly work for us, and not the other way around. Do not take "NO" for an answer ­ force them to explain in writing and then take it from there to as many others as you can find. Also talk about what you learn with other people, break the artificial code of silence that their terror campaign has tried to enforce upon this once talkative nation. Time really is running out, and after NINE LONG YEARS, we must accept a great deal of the blame for everything that's happened! Here's just one of the "new" concepts that we are now expected to approve of without even a vote on it.
"Legalizing "compulsory abortions," i.e.  forced abortions carried out against the will of the pregnant women, as is common place in Communist China where women who have already had one child and refuse to abort the second are kidnapped off the street by the authorities before a procedure is carried out to forcibly abort the baby.
- Babies who are born out of wedlock or to teenage mothers to be forcibly taken away from their mother by the government and put up for adoption. Another proposed measure would force single mothers to demonstrate to the government that they can care for the child, effectively introducing licensing to have children. Implementing a system of "involuntary birth control," where both men and women would be mandated to have an infertility device implanted into their body at puberty and only have it removed temporarily if they received permission from the government to have a baby.
- Permanently sterilizing people who the authorities deem have already had too many children or who have contributed to "general social deterioration".
- Formally passing a law that criminalizes having more than two children, similar to the one child policy in Communist China.
- This would all be overseen by a transnational and centralized "planetary regime" that would utilize a "global police force" to enforce the measures outlined above. The "planetary regime" would also have the power to determine population levels for every country in the world."  (4)
