Drones, Sanctions and the Prison Industrial Complex

By Brian Terrell
(Contd.)

The refrain “we are creating enemies faster than we are killing (or capturing) them” is a bit of truth that gets leaked to the media occasionally in recent years. Sometimes the sentiment is voiced by even the most senior military commanders and applied variously to any of several strategies, including night raids in Afghanistan, check points in Iraq, the prison at Guantánamo, and drone attacks in Yemen and Pakistan.

As with prisons, United States military and diplomatic policies run contrary to their stated objectives of peace and public safety and yet they persist with little question. Prisons and the military, America’s dominant institutions, exist not to bring healing to domestic ills or relief for foreign threats but to exacerbate and manipulate them for the profit of the wealthiest few, at great cost and peril for the rest of us.

One of many discouraging moments of the presidential campaign that ended just before I surrendered to authorities here in November, was in a debate where Mr. Obama stated that Americans need to “decide for themselves” whose sanctions against Iran would be “more crippling,” his or Mr. Romney’s. This was an obscene and unacceptable choice.

Sanctions are portrayed as a diplomatic alternative to war but in their application can be as lethal, warfare by another name. Sanctions that extend beyond trade in armaments to include embargoes on food, medicine, educational materials, and other necessities of life can constitute weapons of mass destruction in themselves.

It is often said that such comprehensive and indiscriminant sanctions make prisons of the countries targeted with them. While the regime of sanctions against inmates here at Yankton is less severe than the brutal conditions I witnessed in Iraq in 1998 or that the United States imposes on the people of Iran or Gaza (by proxy), the comparison is apt. Sanctions and prisons are both about imposing economic and social isolation and both can raise levels of tension and fear when applied without conscience.

Meaningful employment, decent housing, support of loved ones, education and self-respect would be helpful responses to the scourge of addiction and the crimes that ensue from it. Providing these for people at risk would be a priority for a responsible society but all these are robbed from inmates in federal prisons. Threats of war and terrorism are provoked by sanctions and invasions and can be countered only by addressing root causes.

“What father,” Jesus asked,“would give a stone to a child who asks for bread?” We know the answer and it is to our shame.

“The choice is no longer between violence and non-violence,” said Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As resources dwindle, the climate warms and nuclear arms proliferate, even more clearly now than in King’s time,“the choice is between non-violence and non-existence.”

The quality of life and the very existence of all of us depends on the security and well being of each person, especially of those we label criminal or enemy. The admonition from the Hebrew book of Proverbs to give food to our enemies when they are hungry and drink to them when they are thirsty, echoed in the Sermon on the Mount and the universal Golden Rule to treat others as we would be treated is no romantic, unobtainable dream.“Love is the only solution” to the human predicament, said Dorothy Day. Love in our time has become a hard, pragmatic, gritty requisite for survival.

The biggest problem when considering the beginning of beginning is in the accumulation of knowledge, there is even a word for it epistemology.
And once know know about that you also
got a handle on the end of the world, eschatology.
So the purpose of life has been defeated since good and bad people can be differentiated by bastards who know and them that don't.
But its always been like that. God is only as just as reality allows.
Too bad for them that don't know.
Better to be kind than greedy.

Israel's end is near and getting nearer every day.

By the year 2020, or about 6 and 1/2 years, the Israeli Arab citizens, both Christians and Muslims, will become the majority voters in Israel and be able to take their country back.....democratically.. Hallelujah!

Closing down all 400 Jew owned brothels in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and deporting all the Jew mafia criminals would be a big first step in restoring Palestine to its original beauty....

Why Quran should teach you "the proper way" to beat your wife?

Quran is not sent for this.

Quran gave many ways to solve the domestic dispute, why you stick to only one solution? The problem is not in Quran, it is in your mischievous way to "pick and choose" from Quran.

Using the same technique, I can "demonize" any book, any scripture and any law made by any individual or country.

What you lack is the open and unbiased mind and that is your problem. You are a hate monger and not any student of Quran.

Once a hate monger, always a hate monger. People like you can "pick up" hate anywhere , even in simple love messages like "I love you"!!

America: The World’s Number One Sponsor Of Terrorism

By Garikai Chengu

April 23, 2013 "Information Clearing House" - Just as there are good dictators and bad dictators in Washington’s eyes, there are also good terrorists and bad terrorists: Al Qaeda in Iraq, bad. Al Qaeda in Syria, good. Al Qaeda in Mali, bad. Al Qaeda in Libya, good, now bad. This hypocrisy manifests itself most acutely in how western media reports on the victims of terror. On the same day as the recent Boston bombings, at least 75 people were killed in Iraq and more than 250 injured by a series of car bombs.

Al Qaeda in Iraq has claimed responsibility for the car bombings and within minutes of the bombings in Boston, western media outlets, politicians and security experts all hastily concluded that Islamic terror was to blame. This is despite the fact that according to the FBI only 6% of terror attacks on US soil are by Muslims. In fact, Jewish extremists committed more terror attacks in the US than Muslims over the last three decades. Yet notice the disparity in media coverage between the two.

Muslims constitute 1% of the US population, but they are 13 percent of the victims of religious-based hate crimes. Clearly, Muslims at home and abroad are disproportionately the victims of terrorism. Yet in the media there is an outpouring of rage and condemnation whenever western citizens are killed, while reports of more frequent Muslim deaths are muted. In the western media there would appear to be a distinct Hierarchy of Human Life.

America’s policy of openly backing Islamic terrorist groups stems largely from the Cold War era. Back then America saw the world in rather simple terms: on one side the Soviet Union and Third World nationalism, which America regarded as a Soviet tool; on the other side Western nations and militant political Islam, which America considered an ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union. The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom recently remarked that “by any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation.”

The CIA used the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as a barrier both to Soviet expansion and to the spread of Marxist ideology among the Arab masses. The United States also openly supported the Sarekat Islam against Sukarno in Indonesia and the Jamaat-e-Islami against Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in Pakistan. Last but certainly not least there is Al-Qaeda. Lest we forget, Bin Laden was trained,
armed and funded by the CIA.

If any one wants to convert to Islam, he or she should do it after properly studying Islam.

People who convert in haste or just by lopsided study, do not last long.

Any one who enters Islam, does not do any benefit to anyone except himself or herself.

And the rewards which Islam promises is in the hereafter and not in this world. What one gets in this world is peace of mind and surety that he or she is on right path.

One who is studying Islam for the purpose of accepting it has a totally different attitude than who wants to spread hate and hatred against Islam and Muslims at all costs.

America: The World’s Number One Sponsor Of Terrorism

By Garikai Chengu (Contd.)

Former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook admitted that “Al-Qaeda, literally "the database", was originally the computer file of the thousands of Mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians.” America’s relationship with Al Qaeda has always been a love-hate affair. Depending on whether a terrorist group in a given region furthers American interests or not, the State Department either funds or aggressively targets that terrorist group, typically with drones.

American anti-terrorist operations and drones are reported to have killed at least 4700 people over the last decade, the vast majority of whom were innocent men, women and children. For every innocent civilian killed by an American drone strike, there are hundreds of grieving relatives that will inevitably resent America, any number of whom may turn to militant Islam and terrorism.

Truth is, American anti-terrorist operations are only creating more anti-American terrorists. The best that force can do is impose order. It can never elicit harmony. Therefore, a "war on terror" is flawed in theory and disastrous in practice. The war on terror has made Al Qaeda much stronger than it was on 9/11. In fact, the more Washington emphasizes war and confrontation, the more it silences moderate voices in the Muslim world who want to speak up for cooperation.

Quite aside from creating more terrorists than it kills, America’s war on terror also has the unintended consequence of slowly but surely bankrupting the nation. Terrorist attacks on US soil embolden the right wing elements of the military industrial complex and the resulting military actions by these right wing elements embolden terrorists further. It is this vicious cycle of war and terror that future historians may well consider to be one of the key elements that precipitated the decline of the great capitalist American Empire. Adam Smith, the grandfather of capitalism was a staunch anti-imperialist. He argued that imperialism is costly and eventually bankrupts the country. In fact, one year of the US military budget is equal to more than $20,000 per hour for every hour since Jesus Christ was born.

The monumental expansion of US military bases across the globe, in the name of counter-terrorism, illustrates the degree to which America’s treasury is being overstretched by the military industrial elite who commandeer the purse strings.
As Will Blum has pointed out, following the bombing of Iraq, the US wound up with military bases in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and the United Arab Emirates. Following the bombing of Yugoslavia, the US wound up with military bases in Hungary, Macedonia, Bosnia and Croatia, Kosovo and Albania. Following the recent bombing of Afghanistan, the US is now winding up with bases in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.

Much like late stage ancient Rome and the barbarians, Washington is over-stretching and over-extending itself in the name of terrorists. Like Rome, the hubris of Washington’s politicians and the gung-ho nature of its generals are threatening the empire. The three interconnected forces that destroy empires – lack of money, military over-reach and the catastrophic loss of self-confidence that stems from the other two – seem to have coalesced around America with astonishing speed since the Twin Towers tragically fell.

With one difference, the Greek Mythology is dead...while the message of Quran is expanding with each passing day.

Despite Muslims killing each other, no day passes when more and more people in west do not accept Islam.

What would have been the case if Muslims were not killing each other?

You couldn't define what hatred is !, outside of it relating to what does or does not please you.????
But I can see your objectivity is able to court the idea that beginning was began as both hatred and love.
And we witness the completion of everything in us , since we are the image of Allah.(Interest is the builder of life style).
And the imbecile surely is not the continuance of conclusion as normality must be .(Because his interest is shallow he is going backwards into oblivion.).
Yes that's right say the observant among us for it is written in the Koran Man is secondary to all that is between Heaven and Earth.
So being only priority number three , following Gods Ambition , and Creation it can only mean those who fall short amongst us , such as yourself have taken the wrong path and will find no helpers to set you on the right track .
Because mortality is a test of loyalty to the truthfulness of the individual to determine their worth to Heaven.
Actually I am truth because I prove what I say by being what you agree should be.

It does not matter if you "Quote" Quranic verses in your support.

I can quote any scripture to derive whatever meanings I want to derive at. Do not all these sects and denominations quote scriptures.

By changing the context and generalizing what was specific and by partial quoting any message can be mutilated.

That is what we see in posts from you and people like you.

Quran is as peaceful book as any other scripture. But it lays down rules clearly and calling a spade a spade. It does not give false hopes to those who reject its message.

This is not spreading hate and hatred, but telling people what are the consequences of their choice.

So you are silly Ada dumb arse, how could I be a loser I'm on everybody's side except the side of evil.
Which is the reconstruction of what already exists.
Pragmatism is creating a subjective outcome then matching it up to objective reality.that's you.
Utilitarianism is determined subjective analysis as a CONSEQUENCE of what happened before.that's me.
Pragmatism is in fact hallucination , which I am not and you are.
Or are you a romantic idealist in which case I would need to include you in the record of being the stupidest one.
Tell me more about your sex life so I can properly classify you in your proper quantify.
