Ghosts Of The Global War
By Jim Kirwan
This is an 'election year' in this country and yet the voters have not even glanced at the fourteen point eight trillion dollar ghost of the wars: Wars that have stolen everything that anyone really cares about and that have directly blocked every attempt to fix anything that is wrong in this society. So WHY are the wars and the costs of these unilateral and illegal invasions of other countries not front and center in this current selection process?
The image above ­ if it had been on the front pages of every newspaper in the nation ­ as the core of what this government ought to concerned with would radically alter; not just what this so-called election ought to be about but it would force the public to actually consider the hidden moral dilemmas' that have been banned from all the public discussions in the media at all levels.
Arundhati Roy said: "Pity the nation which has to silence its writers for speaking their minds. Pity the nation that has to jail those who ask for justice, while communal killers, mass murders, corporate scamsters, looters, rapists and those who prey upon the poorest of the poor roam free. "(1)
Arundhati could have easily been speaking about this country and how our Director of Intelligence, as the figurehead who acts for our own shadow government, now holds sway over every aspect of this so-called society. If this selection is held without weighing the true costs of these wars which currently stands at: $14.8 trillion ­ then this society is finished as anything but the totally controlled police state that we have become!
How can the public pretend to hold an election where the single largest problem we have, and have had since 2001, is not even be mentioned ­ much less talked about? It's easy if every aspect of the process has been bought off; from the polls to the hollow-shells of the largest political parties that between them offer no choice at all ­ regardless of who "wins" this criminal-farce that was built upon the total charade of American politics ­ at a time when literally the future of the entire Republic and the world hangs in the balance!
The native-nations that lived here before the white-man came were sixty-million strong, before the war that killed 59 million of them. In the world the United States began life with a head start on mass-murder, long before Stalin or Hitler began to do what they did to those people they slaughtered. In the annuals of history when you add in all the additional deaths of all those added to these body counts by people like LBJ, Kissinger, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and now Obamanation ­ the totals of the dead are unimaginable. This is why what we did to those people that predated our arrival here is important.
A tribal-elder of today made this observation: "Of the one hundred dominant economic units in the world today ­ the hundred largest 'economic units,' that's the word they used "units." Forty-nine are countries and 51 are corporations. Now, digest that for a second; what does that mean? It means that corporations are the driving force of decision-making today. And corporations are not concerned with human rights, they're not concerned with human-life, they're not even concerned with a proper-wage for the people that are working for them. So what kind of decisions are gong to be made on our behalf ­ this economic power, these corporate states I call them?
There's going to be hell-to-pay for some of the things that are going on now. So I think that people have to become aware and become awake - power is always in the people's hands. They [the people] need to challenge the values that are being shoved at them today, because this has become a consumer society. It's driven by economics; it's not driven by common sense, its economics. Everybody should be their own leader, in other words do your own thinking for yourself." (2)
"The leadership that we're looking for has to come from business. Very, very important now because business now carries more authority and they carry the economics of the world. Today we're bound together much closer than we were ­ a thousand years ago ­ we're neighbors and we're bound together by electronics and we're bound together by technology and the world has become "a market." And it's this 'market' that we have to deal with. And it's this idea of boundless and endless 'resources.'
The functions of the world itself functions on natural law. The natural law is a powerful regenerative process ­ and is endless ­ it's absolutely endless if everyone agrees to the law and follows the law. But if you challenge the law, and you think you're going to change the law; then you're bound to failure. And in that failure will be a lot of pain because the natural law has no mercy, it is only the law.
The earth is all-powerful, it wasn't made here for human beings, it's that we're part of it; but we don't have to be here because the earth has its own process. And if it comes to the point where you destroy yourself as human beings and you destroy life and finally leave this earth:
The earth's not going to disappear. There's not going to be an end-of-the-world. ~ The world's not going to end, people's life on it will: So it's not the end-of-the-world you're talking about ­ it's the end of us. And the world, no matter what damage you think you've done to it will regenerate! It will regenerate, re-green, it will re-do everything that was here at one time, except there won't be any people. It's got all the time in the world.
. . . You are on your horse as you're coming down towards the finish, and there is the stone wall and you're not pulling (reining in) your horse. You're not stopping, you're in fact accelerating and you're losing your options every day. The elder was speaking to some corporate types about all this and when he questioned one of them he said: "I know what you're saying. To answer your question ­ No we can't 'pull our horse' as you say he said: We have to show a profit. As a CEO I must show a profit; if I don't show a profit I'm fired. It's as simple as that, if I don't show a profit I'm fired.
I said 'To who'? He said to you, the stockholder. I said: Well, are you married? He said yes I am. I said do you have children? He said yes I do. I said do you have any grandchildren? Yes I have two boys. I said; When do you cease to be a CEO and become a grandfather?
There was a lot of silence there because that was a moral question; and if you don't have a moral question in your governing process then you don't have a process that's going to survive. That's the governing law ­ the moral question. You must have a moral society ­ or you won't have any. He couldn't answer the question and neither could anyone else: because there was a moral question. That's what we have to get back to! (3)
This selection is not about moral questions, it's become just another rearrangement of the chairs on the deck of the sinking ship of state; because we cannot face the moral dilemmas that we have been creating since this nation theoretically began its criminal-path toward global colonialism. Capitalism played its part, no question, just as the default we chose to fall back to has been the global-controls enforced by greed, arrogance and the created artificial terror of the global war machines that we have allowed to rule over all our lives. All of this functions only because we have not demanded an end to the financing of these unspeakable polices that seek to destabilize the entire planet in the name of corporate polices that have no moral justification for their own existence ­ much less so ­ as what these decisions actually means whenever anyone thinks about the direction these policies have tried to lock us all into: Which is the end of everything that was once considered natural or even possible in what we so cavalierly called "the civilized world.
The ghosts of those we've murdered are silent but they cannot be denied because in the end we must account for what we've done. Americans were very proud of having a Bill of Rights; but seemingly we missed the implication that went with those rights: Our RESPONSIBILITIES as human beings to be responsible for the universe and the planet itself, not to mention what our actions have burdened us all with ­ when we consider our fellow human beings, anywhere else in the world today.
We cannot undo history; but we can at the very least begin to question everything we do from here on in because quite literally our survival actually does depend on what we decide. That choice is literally ours to make as individuals ­ if we fail ­then the world fails with us.
Think about this and demand that our WARS become the primary focus of this election because the continued survival of these unilateral and illegal invasions has created all this poverty and crime. It is the wars that are the most critical factor in whether or not we can have a world to live in anymore. Cut the funding, and bring all the troops home by Christmas; and we have a chance to alter course-fail to do that and you'll begin to discover how small this planet really is, because there will be no place to hide anywhere on this earth from this evil that we have created and still support with every drop of the stolen treasure that we have allowed these criminals to steal from those of us that earned that money and the use of those resources in the first place!
Why for instance has the media failed utterly to even notice that massive about of information ( The 400 thousand documents) that were recently released about the actual facts concerning how the Iraq war was being waged?
"As usual, the Arabs knew. They knew all about the mass torture, the promiscuous shooting of civilians, the outrageous use of air power against family homes, the vicious American and British mercenaries, the cemeteries of the innocent dead. All ofIraq knew. Because they were the victims.
Only we could pretend we did not know. Only we in the West could counter every claim, every allegation against the Americans or British with some worthy general ­ the ghastly US military spokesman Mark Kimmitt and the awful chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Peter Pace, come to mind ­ to ring-fence us with lies. Find a man who'd been tortured and you'd be told it was terrorist propaganda; discover a house full of children killed by an American air strike and that, too, would be terrorist propaganda, or "collateral damage", or a simple phrase: "We have nothing on that."
