America in a Nutshell

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on May 7, 2008

“Naturally the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”

I read this and I see just how accurate a description of the US it is. Especially after 9/11 2001.

It has been denounced by the Republicans and Neo-Cons as not true. All kinds of attempts to prove that this assertion is false have been made – and they have all failed. This is a very accurate description of what goes on in the US, and the violations of civil rights that the American People is being subjected to by its Government.

Political events after 9/11 2001 that are described above which have taken place in the US:

The War on Terror, specifically on Muslim/Arab/Islamist Terror, about which President George W. Bush said:

Any government that supports, protects or harbors terrorists is complicit in the murder of the innocent and equally guilty of terrorist crimes.

Every nation in every region now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.

Our enemies are a radical network of terrorists — and every government that supports them.

Hundreds of thousands of American servicemen and women are deployed across the world in the war on terror. By bringing hope to the oppressed, and delivering justice to the violent, they are making America more secure.

Iraq is no diversion. It is a place where civilization is taking a decisive stand against chaos and terror, we must not waver.

On September 11 2001, America felt its vulnerability even to threats that gather on the other side of the Earth. We resolved then, and we are resolved today, to confront every threat from any source that could bring sudden terror and suffering to America.

Some have argued that confronting the threat from Iraq could detract from the war against terror. To the contrary, confronting the threat posed by Iraq is crucial to winning the war on terror.

Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.

The deliberate and deadly attacks which were carried out yesterday against our country were more than acts of terror. They were acts of war.

The terrorists and their supporters declared war on the United States – and war is what they got.

Note that the terrorists are being connected with two Islamic countries – Iraq and Afghanistan – thus very clearly establishing that the terrorists he is speaking of are Muslims. This has also been evidenced by the US lack of action throughout history against terrorism that has not been carried out by Islamists.

America’s war on terror is fundamentally a war on Islam and on Muslims.

The Leader of the US has clearly stated who is the Enemy that is attacking the US.

The Patriot Act – especially created to monitor and disrupt any dissension with the Governmental Ideology in regards to the War, and in any given case label and silence such dissension as unpatriotic.

George W Bush on the matter of Patriotism and War:

Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th; malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists, themselves, away from the guilty.

We must take the battle to the enemy, disrupt his plans, and confront the worst threats before they emerge.

I’m a war president. I make decisions here in the Oval Office and foreign policy matters with war on my mind.

There is no telling how many wars it will take to secure freedom in the homeland.

I don’t give a goddamn. I’m the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way. … Stop throwing the Constitution in my face. It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!

That last quote is from the “White House cabinet meeting to discuss the renewal of the Patriot Act, in response to GOP leaders presenting a valid case that the Patriot Act undermined the Constitution. Doug Thompson, Capital Hill Blue, Dec 5, 2005”

Yes – The President of the USA regards the Constitution – i.e the safeguard of Human and Civil Rights for all citizens of the US – a piece of paper that he can dismiss as so much garbage. He basically replaced the Constitution with the Patriot Act.

Public Libraries in the US are required to turn over their records to the Homeland Security so the HS can see who has borrowed what from the library. The only way the libraries can get around this, and thus protect the constitutional rights of Americans to read and take part in any information they wish, is by destroying their customer records…

NGO Charities or individuals that transfer money to predominantly Islamic countries or organizations as humanitarian aid frequently have their assets frozen, also if they are not living in the US. All it takes is the mere suspicion that the money might, perhaps, maybe be passing through an area that the US consider “terrorist territory”. No proof is needed.

Any protests against current US policies, even wearing a T-shirt with anti-war slogans can end you in Police custody without any questions asked.

American Citizens who immigrated from any country where Islam exists are routinely being monitored and put under surveillance, simply because there might be a connection to Islam and thus to terrorism. Police Officers routinely mistreat individuals who “look Muslim” or have an Arabic name.

If the US Government wants to know what you wrote in your email or said on your phone – they can just simply spy on you without any real reason or a court order based in the probability that you are committing a crime.

Yes, the initial quote is a very accurate description of the US. Who said it?

Herman Goering.

Poor Dubya – Wrong again!

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on March 23, 2008

President Bush got his foreign policy bet wrong again. He supported Musharraf during and after the elections even though the people of his country had rejected him. Bush’s blind support for Musharraf during Pakistan’s blackest days when he illegally suspended the constitution, deposed and arrested the Chief Justice and sixty other judges of the Supreme and High Courts. The resulted the lawyers community starting a massive anti-Musharraf campaign in the country. Even those horrific pictures on our television screens showing black suited lawyers being beaten up and mishandled did not cause the Bush Administration to re-examine its policy. This has certainly not endeared the US to many in Pakistan.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Embattled President Pervez Musharraf hailed the start of a “new era of real democracy” in Pakistan and vowed Sunday to support an incoming government led by foes bent on diminishing his powers.

“The journey toward democracy and development we started eight years ago is now reaching its destination,” said the former army strongman, who seized power in a 1999 coup. “A new era of real democracy has begun.”

The U.S.-backed leader was speaking at a military parade celebrating Pakistan’s national day. Flatbed trucks rolled past his viewing stand displaying pieces of Pakistan’s nuclear-armed arsenal: camouflage-painted Shaheen missiles about 40 feet long.

Poor Dubya! But then his advisers haven’t been too good, have they? Besides, what is to be expected from a totalitarian leader? War makes bad bed fellows.

Anyone else think the hypocrisy is glaring? Pakistan has not been invaded or threatened by the US for having Nuke Capability, but Iraq and Iran have. This makes me think that not only is the US in Iraq because the oil, but because of the ISLAMIC opposition to the American Imperialism, which in the mind of anyone from the area of the Old Ottoman Empire, must be just a continuation of French and British Domination. G-d Help us. It’s good that George W Bush is no Richard Lion Heart, although he is just as power-sick and fanatically Xian.

Did you say they didn’t do it for OIL!?

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on June 18, 2006

In a US State Department report dated 1945 it says:

“Controlling the oil-industry and oil sources in the Middle-East is extremely important.”

One by one during a period from 1945-1973 the oilproducing countries in the Middle-East have broken free from Western dominance, and said: “Enough’s enough, get the hell out of here”, so when an opportunity opens a window to gain control over all that richness again, who’s there, barging in and ‘taking over’, using any pretense possible to justify it? The one who lost the most between 1945 and 1973 – The United States of America. Oh, France and Britain lost some too, but no-one lost as much as the US. It must have hurt really bad when all the Americans were deported from Libya, only to be replaced by a less ‘hungry’ Russians…All that oil, just laying there, in the hands of sub-human savage Muslims – Oy! I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the US has NEVER had any peace-keeping troops in the Middle East, or anywhere else for that matter – why could that be? Because the US is not interested in Peace – Peace is bad for business – War is good for business, and the US is built on Big Business – Weapons Business and Oil Business, and the businesses connected to the two big ones.

The Big Business Men never have to send their kids to any US wars – they don’t risk anything, they don’t pay – they just live off the blood of others, demanding ever more. The last abuse scandal/killing spree in Iraq was perped by soldiers who were on their third tour in Iraq…I am not surprised – it was probably so they would get sent home and not have to ‘serve’ anymore.

Is it a coincidence that the US, after invading Iraq is now looking lustily and greedily at Iran – using another “They have horrible weapons” excuse so they can go there and grab whatever they want and force the Iranians to subject to the West? There are another 2 years until the next American election – plenty of time to “liberate a people” – despite the fact that the people in question doesn’t want to be ‘liberated’.

Is it a coincidence that Sudan is getting support from the US, but Rwanda didn’t? No – Sudan has lots of OIL! Connect the dots.

George W Bush will go down in history as either the bloodiest President in the History of the US, or we can start calling him “King George III” after the English King who went certifiably Mad and ran around dressed in women’s underwear to the amusement and embarrassment of the Court.

George III of England was incidently the very King whom George Washington and the “Founding Fathers” were fighting in the War of Independence (1775–1783).

For some reason I find George in women’s underwear much more acceptable than the ransacking of sovereign states for money – don’t you?

Human Rights…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on May 18, 2006

It seems to me that where ever I go on the Internet I come upon discussions about Human Rights – what they are, who has them and who doesn’t have them. Frequently the idea comes up that criminals don’t have any Human Rights, not even after they have served their time.Now let’s see, that means President George W. Bush doesn’t have any Human Rights, Nelson Mandela doesn’t have any Human Rights, Hugh Grant, Christian Slater, the English Royal Family, (under the clause of ‘guilt by association’) the Crown Prince of Denmark, Prime Minister Tony Blair…plus the leaders of a dozen countries in the Third World. They all have criminal records, and according to a certain Mind-set they lost their Human Rights the moment they committed what in the eyes of the Law of the land is a crime.

Fascinating isn’t it?

It’s almost as fascinating as the FACT that the country that claims to be the most democratic and greatest advocate of Democracy and Human Rights, in the World is in fact not a Democracy at all, but a Republic and a Police State which routinely denies big chuncks of it’s citizenship the right to vote.Wow. Hitler, at least, had the decency to not pretend to be democratic and for human rights – maybe because he was vegetarian…or possibly because he was one hell of a road-builder…?
