Killing slaves, making money

So the US (he's CIA connected) and UK (MI6 there) have decided to make Iyad Allawi the new ruler of Iraq, and the cowards at the UN have backed it as well. Anyway, to put Allawi into context, he's the guy responsible for the big “WMD attack within 45 minutes” lie that got Bush and Blair in so much trouble. Now Ashcroft is blabbing on about a new terror attack in the US based on his typical “credible” sources… in this case, the Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades, a group which basically publishes hoax websites and has zero field capability. Oh, and remember Pat Tillman, the guy that walked away from a 3.6 million dollar NFL contract only to be killed in Afghanistan? Well, it turns out he was shot in a “misunderstanding” that's now being labeled a friendly fire incident.

So I guess Pat Tillman died to give the military machine some feel-good press. There have been so many fucking lies in this war game that it wouldn't surprise me if they simply executed him to take advantage of his story. It wouldn't be the first time.

It's so sad. Every war, young idealistic people line up on all sides to fight to protect their way of life. Everyone thinks they're fighting for freedom. Do you think the Nazis were fighting because they were evil? The idea is laughable. The individual soldier pushing bodies into the ovens did it because he believed he was doing what he had to do to protect the freedom and liberty of his compatriots. Just like Americans think. Just like Iraqis think. Just like every slave who's ever been tricked into murdering his friends to serve a wealthy government master.

I'm sure you've seen the photos of the latest terrorists that they've been showing. White kids some of them — the “new face of al Qaeda” I've seen headlines scream. Sure, there are messed up kids from middle-class neighborhoods joining Islamist terrorist groups. But the real threat to the US government is from local militias made of of real Americans, real Americans who haven't forgotten that the reason America was founded was to get away from this bullshit. That's what they're prepping you for. If they can rebrand Nick Berg, a guy with al Qaeda ties that had been investigated over 9/11, as a “patriotic Bush-loving Jew”, then they can rebrand Tim McVeigh as a buddy of Osama's.

I know it's more of an Independence Day quote than a Memorial Day weekend quote, but I'd like to remember what Patrick Henry said on March 23, 1775.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

I think Pat Tillman was an honorable guy who died trying to protect the freedoms he believed in, and I think that's an amazing thing. But what saddens me to my core is the knowledge that in fact he died oppressing those freedoms instead, tricked by a greed-driven enemy that controls the pawns on both sides. Just another human destroyed by an immense money making machine.

When your country asks you to kill the slave of another country, will you recognize your real enemy?

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
