6. When Iraq Was Clinton’s War
https://www.jacobinmag.com/2016/05/war-iraq-bill-clinton-sanctions-desert-fox

Following Iraq’s 1990 invasion of Kuwait, the UN Security Council imposed sanctions on Iraq in an attempt to force a withdrawal. Even after Hussein pulled out, however, the US, which had a veto on the Security Council, refused to allow the sanctions to be lifted.

Their new rationale was that the restrictions were needed to  disarm Iraq. Yet as early as 1992 the US knew Iraq had given up its weapons of mass destruction, and the sanctions remained. And that’s how Clinton wanted it to stay. In 1997 he declared, “the sanctions will be there until the end of time or as long as he [Hussein] lasts.”

The embargo was war by other means. It not only banned weapons of battle, but technologies that ostensibly had military and civilian uses — like pencils, which the sanctions regime said could be fashioned into bullets.

The effects of the sanctions were catastrophic. Iraq experienced shortages of food, medicine, and clean drinking water. And a 1995 Lancet study sponsored by the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization concluded that 576,000 children under the age of five perished because of the policy, while a “conservative” estimate put the death toll for the same age group at 350,000.

Dennis Halliday, a thirty-four-year UN veteran, resigned from the organization in protest after spending a little over a year as the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq. He said the sanctions constituted genocide.

... [W]hile Bush [Sr.] set the sanctions in motion, Clinton not only embraced them but used them as a tool of regime change. It is he who bears the lion’s share of responsibility for the death and suffering of countless Iraqis.

7. Bush’s War of Terror, 9/11, Part 7
http://www.spingola.com/bush_war7.htm

... There were business ties between the bin Laden and the Bush families as recent as 1995 when the bin Ladens invested $2 million dollars into the Carlyle Group of which George H. W. Bush is a board member. The bin Laden and the Bush families apparently severed their relationship in October 2001. This was at the same time that the Carlyle Group went public with their privately held United Defense Industries, a defense contractor that produces missile launch systems – the ones that are on U.S. war ships in the Arabian Sea. [xi] This was also a month after several members of the bin Laden family left the United States, without being questioned about their relative – the prime suspect in the 9/11 attack. They left on a private jet before any one else was allowed to travel by air after 9/11.

So, it is no surprise that [FBI agent] John O’Neill was severely hampered in his attempts to investigate the bin Ladens. ... He felt that there were some treasonous activities in the highest levels of government and was threatening to go public. ... O’Neill resigned from the FBI on 22 August 2001 and began his new job in the private sector as the head of Security at the World Trade Center where he would make twice what he made at the FBI. Wonder who made him that lucrative offer? [Bush's brother owned the company that hired him.] John O’Neill was not the only FBI investigator who could have provided or tried to provide information that could have prevented the 9/11 attack. There were many forewarnings. Some of the warnings were legitimate and others were questionable....

Bush’s War of Terror, Mass Murder, Part 8
http://www.spingola.com/bush_war8.htm

There was a horrific crime committed on 9/11 – the mass murder of nearly three thousand people and thousands more injured. This catastrophic crime impacted every U.S. citizen on that day and in numerous ways in the months and years that followed. Our fears enabled an ever encroaching government to pass legislation designed to suspend many of our personal freedoms as well as create additional bureaucracy to further regulate our existence.

... The government would have us believe that a group of angry Arabs with superior crash course flying skills and some sort of clever manipulation (long distance hypnotism, a demon’s spell?) of emergency procedures of the CIA, FBI, the U.S. government and the U.S. military breached our advanced security. Yet, they were clumsy enough to leave personal items where they were sure to be found. What about that amazing indestructible passport? In 2001 thirty billion dollars was spent on gathering intelligence but it apparently was simply no match for this group, so we are told. And we were told over and over!

... Prior to 1967, Islamic fundamentalism was a relatively small movement. How did things get so out of control? There is a genuine reason why the Afghans and other Muslim fundamentalists hate us. It is a learned behavior – and the younger the student, the better. In the early 1980’s, the U.S. Agency for International Development (AID) gave a taxpayer funded grant to the University of Nebraska-Omaha and it’s Center for Afghanistan Studies to develop specialized textbooks. For more than twenty years the U.S. has spent millions of dollars producing fanatical Islamic schoolbooks for distribution in Afghanistan, a country known for its terrorist training camps.

“The primers, which were filled with talk of jihad and featured drawings of guns, bullets, soldiers and mines, have served since the violent destruction of the Afghan secular government in the early 1990’s as the Afghan school system's core curriculum. Even the Taliban used the American-produced books.” [More recently] new textbooks substituted pomegranates and oranges for the violent illustrations. However, there is “no indication that the text has been changed.”

8. U.S. Officials Created a False Link Between Iraq and 9/11
https://www.lewrockwell.com/2012/10/george-washington/u-s-officials-guilty-of-war-crimes-for-using-911-as-a-false-justification-for-the-iraq-war

[See also Lie by Lie: A Timeline of How We Got Into Iraq: Recalling how Americans were sold a bogus case for invasion
http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2011/12/leadup-iraq-war-timeline ]

Journalist Ron Suskind reports that the White House ordered the CIA to forge and backdate a document falsely linking Iraq with Muslim terrorists and 9/11 and that the CIA complied with those instructions and in fact created the forgery, which was then used to justify war against Iraq. ... Suskind also revealed that u201CBush administration had information from a top Iraqi intelligence official u2018that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq — intelligence they received in plenty of time to stop an invasion. ... Bush administration officials apparently swore in a lawsuit that Saddam was behind 9/11. ... On December 16, 2005, Bush admitted “There was no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with the attack of 9/11".

... [F]alse claims about Iraqi WMDs probably would not have gained traction if it wasn’t for the anti-Arab hysteria after September 11th. And the government policy of torture would not have been tolerated if we weren’t misled into thinking that Saddam and Al-Qaeda had formed an unholy, all-powerful alliance on 9/11, and had to be stopped at any cost.

Western wars have killed four million Muslims since 1990
http://www.middleeasteye.net/columns/unworthy-victims-western-wars-have-killed-four-million-muslims-1990-39149394

The war on Iraq did not begin in 2003, but in 1991 with the first Gulf War, which was followed by the UN sanctions regime. An early PSR study by Beth Daponte, then a US government Census Bureau demographer, found that Iraq deaths caused by the direct and indirect impact of the first Gulf War amounted to around 200,000 Iraqis, mostly civilians. Meanwhile, her internal government study was suppressed.

After US-led forces pulled out, the war on Iraq continued in economic form through the US-UK imposed UN sanctions regime, on the pretext of denying Saddam Hussein the materials necessary to make weapons of mass destruction. Items banned from Iraq under this rationale included a vast number of items needed for everyday life. Undisputed UN figures show that 1.7 million Iraqi civilians died due to the West’s brutal sanctions regime, half of whom were children.

The mass death was seemingly intended. Among items banned by the UN sanctions were chemicals and equipment essential for Iraq’s national water treatment system. A secret US Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) document discovered by Professor Thomas Nagy of the School of Business at George Washington University amounted, he said, to “an early blueprint for genocide against the people of Iraq”.

... This means that in Iraq alone, the US-led war from 1991 to 2003 killed 1.9 million Iraqis; then from 2003 onwards around 1 million: totalling just under 3 million Iraqis dead over two decades.

... A retired biochemist at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Polya concludes that total avoidable Afghan deaths since 2001 under ongoing war and occupation-imposed deprivation amount to around 3 million people, about 900,000 of whom are infants under five. ... As with Iraq, US intervention in Afghanistan began long before 9/11 in the form of covert military, logistical and financial aid to the Taliban from around 1992 onwards. This US assistance propelled the Taliban’s violent conquest of nearly 90 percent of Afghan territory. ... The Soviet Union, of course, also bore responsibility for its role in devastating civilian infrastructure, thus paving the way for these deaths. Altogether, this suggests that the total Afghan death toll due to the direct and indirect impacts of US-led intervention since the early nineties until now could be as high 3-5 million.

9. US fired depleted uranium at civilian areas in 2003 Iraq war, report finds

Coordinates revealing where US jets and tanks fired nearly 10,000 DU rounds in Iraq during the war in 2003 have been obtained by the Dutch peace group Pax. ... According to PAX's report ... the data shows that many of the DU rounds were fired in or near populated areas of Iraq, including As Samawah, Nasiriyah and Basrah.


Depleted Uranium Dust - Public Health Disaster For The People Of Iraq and Afghanistan (and our own military)
http://www.globalresearch.ca/depleted-uranium-far-worse-than-9-11/2374

Doctors in ... Iraq ... have numerous photos of infants born without brains, with their internal organs outside their bodies, without sexual organs, without spines, and the list of deformities goes on an on.  Such birth defects were extremely rare in Iraq prior to the large scale use of DU Weapons. Now they are commonplace. ... The photos are horrendous, they can be viewed on the following website: http://globalecho.org/www.xs4all.nl/~stgvisie/VISIE/extremedeformities.html


Torturing the Rule of Law
https://www.lewrockwell.com/2009/05/ron-paul/the-torture-crossroads

(I)nformation obtained under duress is incredibly unreliable, which is why it is not admissible in a court of law. Legally valid information is freely given by someone of sound mind and body. Someone in excruciating pain, or brought close to death by some horrific procedure is not in any state of mind to give reliable information, and certainly no actions should be taken solely based upon it.

For these reasons, it is illegal in the United States and illegal under Geneva Conventions. Simulated drowning, or water boarding, was not considered an exception to these laws when it was used by the Japanese against US soldiers in World War II. In fact, we hanged Japanese officers for war crimes in 1945 for water boarding. Its status as torture has already been decided by our own courts under this precedent. To look the other way now, when Americans do it, is the very definition of hypocrisy.

Matthew Alexander, author of How to Break a Terrorist used non-torture methods of interrogation in Iraq with much success. In fact, one cooperative jihadist told him, "I thought you would torture me, and when you didn’t, I decided that everything I was told about Americans was wrong. That’s why I decided to cooperate." Alexander also found that in Iraq “the No. 1 reason foreign fighters flocked there to fight were the abuses carried out at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo. Our policy of torture was directly and swiftly recruiting fighters for al-Qaeda in Iraq.” Alexander’s experiences unequivocally demonstrate that losing our humanity is not beneficial or necessary in fighting terror.

[But the psychopaths in power want people of different countries to fight and kill each other, with our help.]

Soon the world will discover HRC & Obama are at the center of the Syrian conflict, profited from the Clinton foundation, & ignored ISIS.

Soon the world will discover HRC & Obama are at the center of the Syrian conflict, profited from the Clinton foundation, & ignored ISIS.

Quatar & Saudis donated to the Clinton foundation while HRC was Sec. State. In exchange for the donations, the CIA was sent to Syria (2011).

CIA was behind a staged Arab spring uprising to attempt to topple Assad, because he was blocking the Quatar/Turkey pipeline plan.

ISIS formed by accident, and spiraled out of control but also provided cover for the Obama/HRC agenda of laudering bribes for the pipeline.

Emails on HRC's private server confirm these tragic events, and Obama & HRC thought they could pardon each other after the election.

Little did Obama/HRC realize that an auto-sync feature between Huma & Weiner inadvertently saved the deleted emails on Weiner's machine.

Trump in many ways is a sideshow to the brazen criminality & size & scope of the Obama admin & Clinton's corruption enterprise.

Russia also cut a deal with Assad to allow an alternative Iran pipeline to go through Syria in exchange for favorable OPEC votes & cash.

The cash payments from Iran were actually wealth transfers from Obama to Iran to Russia. Obama got pissed that the Iranian money went to Russia.

The Democrats were so irritated for being played by the Iranians and Russians that they now want to reignite the cold war against Russia.

These bombshells will be confirmed by Wikileaks/Dikileaks soon, but maybe not before the election. The volume of hacked material is massive.

If HRC wins then Obama & the Clinton's will pull off the largest heist in the history of the world. That's how important this election is.

This high level heist leaving millions dead is also why HRC wants to assasinate Assange & why Obama sent Kerry to Ecuador. Now its too late.

The larger story is how many insiders fighting for insiders there are. All of the MSM is getting a piece of the action from Obama/HRC.

When Trump talks about "Draining the Swamp" he is right, & has risked his life going against the entire world's corrupt power structure.

POLITICAL ACTIVISM

Help Muslims Reform

The best translation of the Quran may be this one:
http://www.studyquran.org/resources/Quran_Reformist_Translation.pdf

The author says Sharia law is not in the Quran, but is phoney, like much of Islam. The author wrote the article called "Muslims either Reform or become Extinct" at http://19.org/blog/reform . Below is the final part of that article.

Muslims either Reform or become Extinct
Edip Yuksel*
http://www.19.org

I have written more than 30 books in Turkish and English on religion, philosophy, politics and law. But the most important ones are the two translations: I have translated the Quran into both Turkish and English languages. As I have demonstrated in my books, especially in the introduction and endnotes of Quran: a Reformist Translation, if Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad were back today, Jews would condemn the first as Anti-Semite, Christians would denounce the second as Anti-Christ, and Muslims would revile the third as the Dajjal, the imposter. Most of what you know about “Islam” (Peacemaking) has nothing to do with the rational, liberating, progressive and peaceful system delivered by Muhammad, which is no different than the original message delivered by all messengers. They all delivered the message of peacefully surrendering to the Truth, to the Just, to the Loving, to the Peaceful, to Compassionate God to establish peace among humans.

In short, the so-called two billion muslim ummah [community] is sick, very sick. We are intoxicated with religious and historic lies, which are 175° proof. We are terribly afflicted with endemic polytheism, ignorance, violence, oppression, pseudoscience, superstitions, misogyny, intolerance, racism, jingoism, economic inequality, poverty, nepotism, corruption, tyranny, delusion, logical fallacies, hypocrisy…. Find all the bad words from a dictionary and we have plenty of all those in our homes, mosques, streets, and governments… Mosques, madrasas, schools, streets and homes continuously produce sick people. Individualism, critical and creative thinking and self-confidence is killed in early age by fathers, teachers, and religious leaders whose role models are authoritative [authoritarian], cruel, bigoted and psychopathic historic characters.

The end is near; either we will become extinct like Neanderthals or we reform ourselves. How? By becoming critical thinkers and questioning the dogmas that have turned us into zombies, barbarians, and the clowns of the world. We can no more afford of doing nothing but blaming the Western world, which might be foolishly enjoying our demise.

*Edip Yüksel, J.D. is a Kurdish/Turkish/American author residing in Arizona. He teaches philosophy and promotes Islamic reform.
