THE WAR AGAINST TERROR – IS A WAR OF TERROR WITH TRUTH THE FIRST CASUALTY
THE ONLY THING UNUSUAL ABOUT THE AFGHAN MASSACRE BY US TROOPS IS THE FACT IT IS GETTING MAINSTREAM MEDIA ATTENTION
EVEN IF THE MSM IS BROADCASTING LIES AND TRYING TO SPIN A LESS HARMFUL VERSION OF THE MASS MURDER (THE LONE GUNMAN THEORY)
IT IS STILL UNUSUSAL FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO EVEN GET A MENTION IN A MILITARY REPORT ,AS THESE THINGS ARE JUST PART OF WAR.
ITS THE SNAFU SYNDROME IN ACTION
SITUATION NORMAL ALL FUCKED UP!!
THE MODERN STANDING ARMY IS JUST TAXPAYER FUNDED CORPORATE MUSCLE.
ITS TURNS NAIVE BUT BRAVE PEOPLE INTO MONSTERS OR MINCEMEAT AND STEALS RESOURSES LEAVING A TRAIL OF DEATH AND DESTRUCTION AND CORPORATE TAX-FREE PROFITS
“MY LIA” WILL BE THE BLOODY REALITY AND “THE LIE” WILL BE THE OFFICIAL REALITY
BUT OF COURSE THE OFFICIAL VERSION FALLS APART AS SOON AS ITS SPUN, EVEN WITH PRESIDENTIAL BACKING!!
MILITARY INTELIGENCE IS A CONTRADICTION IN TERMS AND POLITIONS JUST AIN’T THAT SMART EITHER
The Massacre of the Afghan 17 and the Obama Cover-Up
By James Petras
March 27, 2012 “Information Clearing House” — The March 11 Massacre of the 17 Afghan citizens, including at least nine children and four women, raises many fundamental issues about the nature of a colonial war, the practices of a colonial army engaged in a prolonged (eleven-year) occupation and the character of an imperial state as it commits war crimes and increasingly relies on arbitrary dictatorial measures to secure public compliance and suppress dissent.
After the cold-blooded murder of the 17 Afghan villagers in Kandahar Province the US military and the ever-complicit Obama regime constructed an elaborate cover-up, exposing the Administration up to charges of conspiracy to suppress the essential facts, falsify data and obstruct justice: All are grounds for criminal prosecution and impeachment.
This massacre is just one of several hundred committed by US armed forces according to the Afghan president, Hamid Karzai. It could ruin the Obama presidency, by putting him on trial for conspiracy to obstruct justice and arguably send him to jail for war crimes.
Obama’s deliberate lies about the events surrounding the massacre and the fundamental responsibility of the high military command for the crimes committed by its troops underscores the breakdown of the occupation of Afghanistan, the very centerpiece of Obama’s war policy. The President of the United States has personally played a major role in the cover-up. From a political vantage point, the executive conspiracy charge has wider and deeper implications than the massacre itself, as horrible as it is.
THE LOCALS BEG TO DIFFER WITH THE US OFFICIAL VERSION. JUST LIKE THE LOCALS DIFFERED WITH THE CLAIMED OSAMA BIN LADEN KILL…I WONDER WHATEVER HAPPEN TO THE HELMET CAMERA FILM?
WE KNOW THE SPECIAL FORCES INVOLVED WHERE KILLED OFF! DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES..
JUST MORE BODIES THAT CAN BE STRIPPED FOR SPARE PARTS
DEADLY LIES AND FATAL FLAWS OF THE OFFICIAL DEATH LISTS
You must already know that the Pentagon’s “official” death lists, the KIA’s, or combat deaths, are an utter fraud, as are civilian deaths. A fatality is not considered a “combat death” if the individual is injured in an attack and then dies from those same wounds a year later in a hospital. Car accidents, accidental explosions or falls that result in death (even when they occur in a war-zone, which is all the time) are not considered combat deaths. Death from a disease acquired in the war zone is not considered a “combat death.” That includes cancer and chronic illness, which occurs much more frequently among “service-people,” and is likely caused by the toxic environment of deployment.
What the rolls of the dead also do not include, are the many thousands who continue on, to some extent or another, with permanently impaired brain function. This could mean many physiological things, including loss of memory, PTSD, retardation, quadriplegia, or total coma. USA Today reports that over 360,000 veterans of the Iraq/Afghan Wars have traumatic brain injuries.
In other cases, the cerebral matter is so necrotic, or so much is missing, that the patient may have a better outlook for survival by having some portion of their brain restored via transplantation. The only way to accomplish this is by reaping the “leftover” cerebrum of a dead man in the form of stems cells, cerebrospinal fluid, vascular structures, or other.
When someone “joins” any branch of the military, their body no longer belongs to them. New techniques and medical experiments are regularly tested on “service-people,” and, should they die at some point while following orders, their remains may be used in whatever manner suits the government.
Frequently, the corpses of men are salvaged, their functional pieces re-used for living “service-people.” Whether it be a kidney, a lump of skin, an eyeball, or any scrap that can be assimilated by a living amputee, the cadaver is recycled when possible. In other cases, the bodies are incinerated and dumped in a landfill .
I found several cases of cerebral matter being transplanted into brain injury patients listed at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research website and their affiliates. It leads me to believe the practice is much more common than the public is aware.

MEANWHILE IN KANDAHAR SOME SURVIVORS GIVE THIER VERSIONS ….AND OBAMA AND THE US MILITARY ARE FACING SOME SERIOUS CHARGES OF COVER-UP
Up to 20 US Troops Behind Kandahar Bloodbath – Afghan Probe
March 18, 2012 “RT” — An Afghan parliamentary investigation team has implicated up to 20 US troops in the massacre of 16 civilians in Kandahar early on Sunday morning. It contradicts NATO’s account that insists one rogue soldier was behind the slaughter.
The team of Afghan lawmakers has spent two days collating reports from witnesses, survivors and inhabitants of the villages where the tragedy took place.
“We are convinced that one soldier cannot kill so many people in two villages within one hour at the same time, and the 16 civilians, most of them children and women, have been killed by the two groups,” investigator Hamizai Lali told Afghan News.
Lali also said their investigations led them to believe 15 to 20 US soldiers had been involved in the killings. He appealed to the international community to ensure that the responsible parties were brought to justice, stressing the Afghan parliament would not rest until the killers were prosecuted.
“If the international community does not play its role in punishing the perpetrators, the Wolesi Jirga [parliament] would declare foreign troops as occupying forces,” he said.
The head of the Afghan parliamentary investigation, Sayed Ishaq Gillani, told the BBC that witnesses report seeing helicopters dropping chaff during the attack, a measure used to hide targets from ground attack.
Gillani added that locals suspect the massacre was revenge for attacks carried out last week on US forces that left several injured.
REVENGE KILLINGS ARE A SERIOUS WAR CRIME ,WE USED TO SHOOT PEOPLE FOR THAT!!
In response to the massacre Afghan PM Hamid Karzai called for US troops to quit Afghan villages and confine themselves to their military bases across the country. Furthermore, the Taliban announced that talks with US forces would be suspended.
Meanwhile the US military has detained one soldier in connection with the massacre and transferred him to Kuwait amid outcry for a public trial in Afghanistan. Currently, the soldier is being flown to Kansas base, AFP reported.
US authorities are currently conducting an investigation into the motives behind the attack, but maintain that the soldier’s trial must be dealt with by the US legal system.
It is believed that the soldier may have had alcohol problems and been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
REMEMBER PTSD PEOPLE LIKE THIS WILL BE HOMELESS ON A STREET NEAR YOU VERY SOON…
BUT THIS ALEGDE DRUNK PSYCOTIC TOOK OUT 2 VILLAGES AND RAPED 2 WOMEN AND WAS FLYING A HELICOPTER AT ONE POINT!
IS HE THE EVIL “CHUCK NORRIS”?
WHOEVER HE IS ,HE IS BEING KEPT AWAY FROM THE AFGHANI INVESTIGATION..AT ANY COST!!
US Forces Raped Two Women in Kandahar Carnage: Probe Mission
By Press TV
March 17, 2012 “Press TV” — The Afghan parliamentary mission investigating the recent massacre of 16 civilians by US forces in Afghanistan says two women were raped during the deadly incident, Press TV reports.
Two members of the fact-finding mission, Hamidzi Lali and Shakiba Hashemi, told the general meeting of Afghanistan’s parliament on Saturday that the American troopers raped two Afghan women before starting the massacre.
They said between 15 to 20 US soldiers were involved in the carnage.
This is while Washington claims that the 38-year-old Army Staff Sergeant Robert Bales, who has just arrived in the US, was the only American military personnel responsible for the massacre.
Earlier on Friday, Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai criticized the United States for not cooperating with the Afghan fact-finding team and said the killing of civilians by foreign forces in Afghanistan “has been going on for too long.”
FOR PAKISTANI’S WHO HAVE HAD TO WORK CLOSELY WITH THE AMERICANS IN THIS FIELD ,THIS SORT OF BEHAVIOUR IS NOT SUPRISING
FOR THOSE FAMILIAR WITH THE MODERN MILITARY AND ITS BRAINWASHING PROGRAM AKA TRAINING ,THIS BEHAVIOUR IS NO SUPRISE EITHER
Washington’s dirty little secret is out!
The Kandahar Massacre
By M A Niazi
March 18, 2012 “The Nation” – Pakistanis were not very surprised when an American soldier ran amuck in Kandahar and shot up 16 Afghan civilians, which came hot on the heels of another incident of American callousness in Afghanistan, i.e. the burning of copies of Holy Quran at the Bagram Airbase. Just as Pakistan had experienced the Raymond Davis affair, in which a CIA contractor had shot two Pakistanis, with his rescue vehicle running down a third, and had thus learned the hard way that CIA contractors were not benign presences who could be given the free run of the country, so have the Afghans learnt at the cost of massacre in Kandahar and the cost of being occupied by the USA. The common aspect of both incidents is that Washington’s dirty little secret is out!
If Europe sent its ‘remittance men’ out to the colonies, the USA is sending out those murderous offenders who, if kept in the country, would soon spray either the children at a school, or colleagues at a workplace, with bullets. It is an unfortunate truth that in a culture that glorifies violence, the armed forces attract the very kind of persons prone to such sudden outbursts. They are not many, and military discipline normally controls them, but under the sort of pressure that Afghanistan is providing for the US army or Pakistan for CIA contractors, such incidents are bound to happen.
One major source of pressure is that the USA is facing is that of defeat
Another factor is that the military is not like civilian life, where murderous tendencies are severely suppressed, even on the penalty of loss of life. The military trains people to kill, and going into combat means killing others.Of course, something may go wrong, and some soldiers, or one or the other, may lose the inhibitions too much, enough to run amuck.
A recurring American theme is that of the heavily-armed vigilante, who shoots up the ‘bad guys’, suitably dehumanised by being given comic-book names, from the ‘injun’, the native American, brutally massacred during the Indian wars of the 19th century, to the ‘jerry’, ‘jap’, ‘chink’ and ‘gook’ (Germans, Japanese, Chinese and Vietnamese, the latter two from the Korean and Vietnam wars) of the 20th century
This makes sense not just of the My Lai massacres, in which American troops slaughtered Vietnamese villagers, but of the massacres in Iraq that also learnt the cost of being occupied by the USA, as well as of the non-US, Nato massacres in Afghanistan, carried out by forces under American influence, even before the close contact produced by joint operations together. There were two massacres by US forces in Haditha during the occupation. The first was in 2005, in which US marines killed 24 and then Blackwater military contractors killed 17 people in 2007. Almost as if in a rehearsal for Salalah, an Apache helicopter crew killed 12 in Baghdad in the same year. These killings, My Lai, Haditha, Kandahar, all took place under occupation, and indicate the nature of American occupation: It is not just neo-colonial, but it is staffed by violent people.
SOME VETS DO TRY AND CLEAR THIER CONCIENSES
BUT THESE TRAINED KILLERS WILL LIVE WITH THE NIGHTMARES AND PTSD FOR THE REST OF THIER LIVES PROBABLY ON A STREET NEAR YOU
LETS HOPE THEY CAN KEEP HOLD OF THE MONSTER INSIDE THEM
“I Don’t Work For You No More”
“I Am No Longer the Monster I Once Was”
Jon Turner relates his experiences in Iraq at the Winter Soldier 2008 event.
“The reason I am doing this,” said former Marine Jon Turner, “is not only for myself and for the rest of society to hear, but it’s for all those who can’t be here … . Until people hear what is going on with this war, it will continue to happen, and people will continue to die. I’m sorry for the things that I did. I am no longer the monster that I once was.”
See also www.ivaw.org and www.snowshoefilms.com for more.
A former Marine who had served two tours in Iraq, Jon Turner did not look like a monster.- he could easily pass for the all-American boy.
But the stories he related, and the videos and slides he showed during four days of hearings called “Winter Soldier Iraq and Afghanistan,” were a million miles away from Norman Rockwell America.
During last month’s hearings, held just outside Washington, D.C., a group called Iraq Veterans Against the War presented 55 veterans, including Turner, who gave personal testimony of what they had seen and done in Iraq. It was one horror story after another.
Turner, whose unit had lost 18 soldiers in Iraq, reported routinely firing rounds into mosques just out of anger; “kicking in doors and terrorizing families”; the mistaken firing of rounds into cars filled with civilians whose drivers were simply confused or didn’t understand the English commands to stop; and dozens of other brutalities carried out daily against the population of Iraq.
Other veterans testified to similar incidents, but two of Turner’s stories were among the heaviest we heard in those four days.
The first was of Turner’s “first kill” – a “fat man” on foot whom he shot for refusing a command to halt. The “fat man” did not die from the first bullet that Turner put in his neck, so while he screamed and looked pleadingly into Turner’s eyes, Turner deliberately dispatched him with a shot at close range.
The second story was even worse. Turner and his men were having a bad day – and bad days are apparently not hard to have in Iraq – so Turner and two fellow soldiers “took out some individuals” who were doing them no harm. Turner shot a man going by on a bike, then threw the body behind a wall and tossed his bike on top of it.
At the hearings, my friend Anthony Swofford, author of “Jarhead” and a former Marine himself, leaned over to me and said, “I think Turner just confessed to murder.” But putting that remark in perspective, Swofford would also tell me later, “I know that for every guy up there testifying today, there are probably a thousand others out there keeping silent.”
Although the horror stories kept coming for four days, not all of them involved personal malice. Marine gunner James Gilligan sobbed as he recounted how in Afghanistan in 2004, he placed an unfamiliar compass too close to a machine-gun barrel, causing it to give a false enemy position. Instead of taking out the Taliban artillery, the troops caused extensive civilian casualties in a nearby Afghan village.
One thing is certain: The issues and problems that were talked of at Winter Soldier Iraq and Afghanistan were all things that should have been discussed and debated by the Congress, the press, and the American people long before we entered this war.

Millions join global anti-war protests
A weekend of worldwide anti-war demonstrations has brought millions of people out onto the streets in support of a peaceful solution to the crisis between Iraq and the United States.
It was a wonderful feeling to be with over 150,000 people all opposed to our government’s stance on the war
Ann de Hugard, Melbourne, Australia
According to BBC News, between six and ten million people took part in protests(THE BBC HALVED THE NUMBERS,THEY REPORTED 600,000 IN MADRID WHEN 1.5MILLION WHERE THERE) in up to sixty countries over the weekend of the 15th and 16th; other estimates range from eight million to thirty million
Some of the largest protests took place in Europe. The protest in Rome involved around three million people, and is listed in the 2004 Guinness Book of World Records as the largest anti-war rally in history. Madrid hosted the second largest rally with more than 1½ million people protesting the invasion of Iraq,
