Have We Anything Of Which To Be Proud?

 

 

 

Have We Anything Of Which To Be Proud?

During the war, to save the world from Communism, in the Extreme Orient, the Coalition of the really nice folk, dropped more bombs on innocent people than had been dropped during World War Two.

“By the end of the war, 7 million tons of bombs had been dropped on Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia – more than twice the amount of bombs dropped on Europe and Asia in World War II. In addition, poisonous sprays were dropped by planes to destroy trees and any kind of growth – an area the size of the state of Massachusetts was covered with such poison. Vietnamese mothers reported birth defects in their children. Yale biologists, using the same poison (2,4,5,T) on mice, reported defective mice born and said they had no reason to believe the effect on humans was different.”

The nice guys were of course not satisfied with that, so they continued to slaughter the peasants, here we have a letter from a GI to his parents, explaining the sort of exercise in which his platoon took part:

“Dear Mom and Dad:

Today we went on a mission and I am not very proud of myself, my friends, or my country. We burned every hut in sight!

It was a small rural network of villages and the people were incredibly poor. My unit burned and plundered their meagre possessions. Let me try to explain the situation to you.

The huts here are thatched palm leaves. Each one has a dried mud bunker inside. These bunkers are to protect the families. Kind of like air raid shelters.

My unit commanders, however, chose to think that these bunkers are offensive. So every hut we find that has a bunker we are ordered to burn to the ground.

When the ten helicopters landed this morning, in the midst of these huts, and six men jumped out of each “chopper”, we were firing the moment we hit the ground. We fired into all the huts we could….

It is then that we burned these huts…. Everyone is crying, begging and praying that we don’t separate them and take their husbands and fathers, sons and grandfathers. The women wail and moan.

Then they watch in terror as we burn their homes, personal possessions and food. Yes, we burn all rice and shoot all livestock.”

Are your faces already glowing with pride, are you already slapping yourselves on the back, having just dished out the same medicine on Iraq, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan and Yemen?

In Asia, nobody can give any reasonable explanation as to why the war was necessary in the first place, as when it came to an end the Communists took power, as had the Western financed Communists in Russia and China. So what purpose did the war serve? Well who do you imagine was being paid a lot of money for every bomb which was dropped and every shell and bullet, fired out of the muzzle of a cannon or machine gun? Well that would be the folk whom control the governments and the weapon shops, namely the Banking families.

Here we are sixty years on and nothing much has changed apart from the selected targets. We now have Israel carrying out the occasional billion dollar bash against Gaza, where there are only defenceless women and children. Where many kids have been burnt to death by White Phosphorous, without a word of condemnation from the Friends of Israel, unlike the lies about Syria, where thousands were killed by British and French weapons, without a word from the Free Press, long before Russia turned up on the scene.

One little chap, who was injured by something or other, in an area where hundreds have been killed in recent times, has been selected as a victim of indiscriminate Russian bombs, without supporting evidence. The Western “Free” Press is telling us that this is something which has caused an uproar, which I personally have not noticed, it has not changed any game for me.

You see the West was already guilty of unforgivable behaviour during the wars in Asia, where their behaviour differs very little from that of Daech or Al Qaeda in the Middle East, that is, if there is any real difference between the CIA and their own Al Qaeda and Daech.

“The CIA in Vietnam, in a program called “Operation Phoenix,” secretly, without trial, executed at least 20,000 civilians in South Vietnam who were suspected of being members of the Communist underground. A pro-administration analyst wrote in the journal Foreign Affairs in January 1975: “Although the Phoenix program did undoubtedly kill or incarcerate many innocent civilians, it did also eliminate many members of the Communist infrastructure.”

So when David Cameron explains to the Friends of Israel, generously represented in the British Parliament, that he takes great care to ensure that innocent civilians in Yemen, are miraculously left untouched by “British” armaments, while thousands are dying as a result of those less humane manufacturers of weapons, despite the images of death and the destruction of hospitals, schools and other infrastructure, the British, unlike those savage Russians are free of guilt and they can go safely back to sleep.

So where are we? The British and their allies, have attacked and destroyed, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia and Yemen, in recent times, and claim to have justification for all of the deaths and destruction of which they are responsible, and have “bestowed” this generosity on to deserving people to save them of course. The British are past masters at killing those whom they wish to save. They of course, having saved Yugoslavia, they proceeded to plunder and carve it to pieces.

So full in the midst of this carnage, why does the British Press choose to attach such importance to the image of a youngster, who is fact only one in a million, while having ‘chosen’ to ignore the British and friends massive slaughters in other wars which they have deliberately provoked, wars which killed hundreds of thousands of youngsters?

Anyone who believes that the British have ever declared a war for the sole purpose of saving people, which was not ultimately for the benefit of the Bankers, have their heads stuck firmly up their own arse.
