- The sought after has finally arrived. It's been well
over a year, closer to two, since the formal Council of Conspirators began
to plot the arrival of this day. Finally WAR has arrived in all its blood
and ruin-all it's chaos and oblivion.
- When the plotting first began, it only sought to change
the language. The death of subtlety was next among the casualties and was
soon followed by the total reorganization of society's priorities and governmental
symbols. Emphasis was placed upon the use of words and terms. FEAR was
loosed upon the country. The fear of every word was echoed in the terror,
of anything that might conflict with the impending promise of the war to
- This was to be the new way of all things. This would
mark the new age of Pax Americana, (Bush Doctrine 2002) and would become
our footprint on planet earth. Imperial American military might was to
be the one and only path to any goal worth taking. In our number-oneness,
we proceeded to become the embodiment of "IT." Nothing could
stop this Empirical force that had been ordained by perversions, combined
with tortured religious fanatical visions, and aided immeasurably by vast
amounts of homegrown arrogance and greed. So this irresistible force was
aimed and fired at the Middle East, and at Iraq in particular; after having
first glanced off the deserts of Afghanistan, as being less than useful
to the glory of this cause.
- And all this while, the Council of Conspirators continued
to design their dirty little plots and their secret basement plans, supported
by the theft of billions from other programs, because the "WAR"
was always uppermost. No mention was made that before this unholy alliance
was formed, there was no threat, there was no need to fight and die in
distant deserts, for ideas that have become so contorted as to lose all
meaning now, beneath the boots of American invaders in an ancient land
that has no need of us.
- But still, the facts aside, they plotted and they schemed.
This would be the great achievement, a legendary victory in the annuals
of military arms. Our invading forces would be met with flowers and open
arms, and soon all Iraq would begin to resemble West LA. But time passed,
and our troops continued to play at war. Thousands upon thousands of the
native population were killed - slaughtered really, by bombs and tanks
and heavy weapons, and always this regrettable collateral damage was dismissed
as, just part of the price of freedom.
- Then a few months ago the pace of our need to prepare
the locals for their new yoke of American subjugation was stepped up. We
went back to house-to-house raids, to middle of the night searches for
those who were not there. On this path over the last year over 10,000 people
were arrested, and not charged. It is still not known how many others were
simply killed in these housekeeping actions designed to make the country
secure enough for freedom and democracy. Something else arrived with all
of this, something fiercely angry, something unrelenting and remorseless
- a people were beginning to awaken to the seizure of their land and of
their way of life. As the anniversary of the beginning of this crime approached,
a new and unquiet spirit began to move throughout that land, and with it
came the true dogs of war: red of tooth and claw, frenzied in their outrage,
determined in their wrath to force us from their land. And this is where
we are today.
- This was the scene, behind the scene, when four American
mercenaries were ambushed and murdered, their corpses brutally disfigured
and left hanging from a bridge in Fallujah. The images were flashed around
the world. Outrage was immediate and the military soon decided to pounce
upon the "thugs" that did this to these American civilians. But
they weren't civilians, they were mercenaries, calling themselves contractors,
and they were armed to the teeth in a war zone. They were also part of
the same group of Americans that had been ripping people from what was
left of their homes, at gunpoint, in the middle of the night and hauling
half of them away to camps, never be heard from again. Those not arrested
were frequently beaten, usually in front to their families, and sometimes
killed. All of this in a brutal effort to discover who the enemy really
was: then the men in black would just disappear until the next time. This
was what the people of Fallujah remembered about American law and order,
and this is part of what has finally brought on the full appearance of
total WAR, back into Iraq.
- Prior to the four dead mercenaries, thousands and thousands
of Iraqi's died brutal and needless deaths, and no one except other Arabs
allowed those pictures to go out into the world. The American War machine
didn't even count how many of those they came to liberate, who had to die,
to get their personal slice of freedom's sometimes deadly air.
- When Fallujah resisted in force, the American war machine
went over-the-top with all weapons blazing. In that weeklong outburst we
claimed that 95% of all those killed were resistance fighters. The facts
say otherwise. The dead children and so many women and the elderly with
bullets in the back are hard to argue with. But our intrepid media representatives
saw none of this.
- Now, everything has changed. The war that didn't happen
last year has arrived in full and bloody conflagration. The road between
Baghdad and the Airport is now a free fire zone, transports cannot move
except in the far north of the country. All over Iraq, the military is
under siege by reinvigorated people who want their country back. People
also want their families to be free from marauding invaders and of having
their homes and farms bombed, their way of life destroyed by those who
do not even speak their language: People (mostly US military) who ridicule
their religion and their customs, and shoot too often, before they even
know what might be going on.
- Before we came they had Saddam and his brutality, but
they also had remnants of the world's oldest civilization, their museums
and their ancient books, their records, and their way of life. Many of
their women held open and honorable professions, today these same women
are uncertain of their future, in a society now permanently in flux. During
the invasion most people could only watch while US Marines either stood
by and watched it all go up in flames, or watched the bandits as they looted
what was left of what used to be the Iraqi state. There is little love
between the people of Iraq and their current occupiers (us).
- What is different now, is that the tables have been completely
turned, and we are about to finally have to begin to pay the price that
war demands, from those who chose war carelessly. Body bags are the first
instance of failed political polices. In this case diplomacy was never
even tried-because our anointed one, had talked to god and then decided,
"WAR was what it had to be!" Never mind that there were laws
about making those kinds of decisions. This mattered not to BUSH, because
he was chosen above all men to bring freedom to the waiting world, despite
the rights of other peoples, and the Constitution of the USA. Bush had
his mission, and nothing as small as the US Congress or the courts were
going to get between him and his mission: because he was chosen by god
to do this. So Bush ordered the war to begin, but knowing nothing of war
in reality, he didn't even begin to see this coming!
- Now as surely as night follows day, WAR has followed
on his orders, having heard the call directly from his lips. A little late
perhaps, but at last the bloody fighting has finally begun, and our leader
will finally have his war to stain his term of office, and to mark the
premature end of thousands of lives that need not have been terminated
by this mentally deficient fool who calls himself "the president."
Now his only problem is how to escape this ever-growing quagmire in the
wasteland that Iraq has now become?
- We cannot leave, and we cannot stay. Our allies are beginning
to pack it in, and think again about just what this adventure was really
been about. This is not just W's problem; anymore it's ours as well. Those
troops that are dying daily, they are our loved ones, part of the blood
and treasure than Bush has thrown away so freely just to satiate his ego,
in his little talks with god. When politics is just a bit of theater, a
little graft, and a lot of corruption, that's business as usual. But when
politicians begin to buy their own BS, and begin making claims upon the
world, and all the profits that abound within it - then it's time for the
ancient Gods of WAR to begin to play their blood-stained hands-again.
- Now there is all this talk about elections; who is credible,
and who is not - it's bunk! Iraq is not ours to dictate to, it never was.
The entire fiasco about elections has nothing to do with running Iraq;
it has only to do with saving the ass of the idiotic fools that invaded
Iraq in the first place-unilaterally-standing as they did against the whole
world, except for the Brits and the Israeli's. Well they did their thing,
and got the disaster that they were told they should expect. Now they want
to dignify all that death and destruction they have wrought in Iraq, by
papering over all that crime with yet another puppet government! Time's
up for the Bushites. The world has been there and done this; way too many
times already. This time it just won't wash-we'll have to wait and see,
no doubt-but the odds are heavier this time, against this course of action,
than they have ever been before!
- How shall we explain the footprint that we will not leave
in old Iraq? How can we explain to our children what we tried to do to
all those people, and in the name of what? "We killed them in order
to make them free?" We bankrupted this nation and drained even the
red ink from our treasury in service to which multi-national corporate
friends of the man who stole that office that he claims as his? And despite
all that, we have done nothing to rein in this man who talks to god, and
sends our men and women out to die, because he has a vision for the world?
- It's fascinating that none of the "newscasts"
here have had the courage to show us what is happening daily to our troops,
or to those that we are killing by the hundreds in Iraq. We've been practicing
selective coverage now since well before this "war" began. When
will be begin to choose to tell the truth? Because the way it's going now,
we will soon be trapped by our own military shortsightedness. Those failures
can't be covered up forever. When will that day of reckoning arrive? Maybe
just like" the revolution" - the results this time just won't
