When viewing footage of Nazis marching down the Champs-Elysees in June, 1940, when Hitler is sightseeing down the Place de l’Etoile and around the Eiffel Tower with Parisian residents either conspicuously absent or visibly in the throes of deep despair, I see painfully similar scenarios on CBS and FOX of America’s Middle East occupation: “stormtroopers” breaking down doors and rounding up “suspects,” sending them off to detention camps to be tortured (with no rights), old women and children showing hate so indelibly pressed into their faces that they would relish killing an American, the truth censored from the bevolkern, human violations, shock and awe, reigns of terror on the poor and helpless, lies/betrayals, war crimes, selling fear at home about “the Resistance” (aka, “insurgency”).
Ultimately time conflates and events transpose irregardless of the so-called casus belli, (a burning Reichstag or a 9/11). Add the Nazi-styled helmet adopted by our military and it only crystallizes what we apparently don’t want to see. Add private/covert mercenary armies like Blackwater USA (a latter-day “SS”) and the fog begins to lift.
Both “crusades” require(d) abundant lies and steady supplies of paranoia: “Liberating the oppressed,” “safeguarding the homeland,” hunting “terrorists” hostile to the domestic weltanschauung, leaders answering to “a higher authority” while pledged to divide et impera, Dei gratia!, and, lastly, feeling as if in “the eye of a storm. All around us winds are swirling” (Bush, 5/23/07). History does indeed repeat what isn’t learned.
JUST WHAT IS THIS PERSON GETTING AT/ OTHER THEN SHOWING HIS CONTEMPT FOR AMERICA. THE REASON THE HELMET AMERICAN FORCES LOOKS THE WAY IT DOES IS THAT IT IS MORE EFFICIENT NOW. BETTER PROTECTION, THE DESIGN ALLOWS THE FLAK JAKET TO MEET THE HELMET AND BETTER PROTECT THE NECK. CALLING AMERICAN TROOPS STORMM TROOPERS SHOWS HIS IGNORANCE OF PROCEDURES IN A HOSTILE ENVIORMENT. DOES HE EXPECT THE TROOPS TO WALK UP TO THE DOOR OF A POSSIBLE TERRORIST HIDEOUT AND KNOCK AND ASK IF THERE IS ANYONE THERE? COM'ON GET REAL. HE TALKS ABOUT TORTURE. WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE AT THE MURDER OF AMERICAN TROPS. TROOPS THAT ARE WHIPPED, CUT, ABUSED, THEN EXECUTED. WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE AT THIS. NO HE JUST WANTS TO BASH AMERICA AND HERE SONS AND DAUGHTERS WHO VOLUNTEERED TO PROTECT HIS LIFE FROM THE ISLAMOFACISTS, WHO BY THE WAY WOULD BEHEAD HIM IN A HEART BEAT.
HE TALKS OF LIES ... KOOLAID DRINKER. ONCE AGAIN THE SPIN OF BUSH LIED TROOPS DIED IS IN PLAY. A FACT, SINCE 1991 WHEN SADDAM VIOLATED ALL THE SURRENDER AND END OF CONFLICT AGREMENTS HE MADE THE PEACE NULL AND VIOD. HIS CONSTANT, AND FLAGERANT NOSE THUMBING TO THE WORLD IN EFFECT MADE THE 1991 WAR CONTINUE. 14 RESOLUTIONS VIOLATED, AND YES WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION USED AND DEVELOPED. OH BUT SEEING THAT NO NUKE WAS FOUND THIS PERSON WANTS TO BELIEVE NO WMD WERE EVER THERE. GUESS WHAT GAS AND CHEMICAL WEAPONS ARE WMDS TO.
HE WANTS TO CALL BLACKWATER A SS OUTFIT. I DO NOT THINK THIS PERSON KNOWS HISTORY AT ALL. BLACKWATER IS FAR FROM A WWII SS OUTFIT. A PRIVATE SECURITY GROUP PROVIDEING PROTECTION FOR THE CONTRACTORS WHO BY THE WAY ARE HELPING TO REBUILD AND DEVEOLPE IRAQ. NEW SCHOOLS, SCHOOLS FOR WOMEN. HOSPITOLS, DESALINIZATION PLANTS, AND BETTER REFINERIES.
HIS CLAIM THAT THERE ARE NO WINDS SWIRLING AROUND US. PERHAPS HE DOES NOT LIKE THE MENTAL PORTRAIT PAINTED. WELL HOW ABOUT THE WOLVES ARE AT THE DOOR THEN? THIS PERSON CLEARLY LIVES WITH THEIR HEAD IN THE SAND AND JUST WANTS TO BASH AMERICA AND THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION.
