Below just one example of ugly US wars on the world
Marilyn Young, historian
The U.S. can destroy Iraq's highways, but not build its own; create the conditions for epidemic in Iraq, but not offer health care to millions of Americans. It can excoriate Iraqi treatment of the Kurdish minority, but not deal with domestic race relations; create homelessness abroad but not solve it here; keep a half million troops drug free as part of a war, but refuse to fund the treatment of millions of drug addicts at home.... We shall lose the war after we have won it.

Dropping bombs on all of those innocent people in Hiroshima was evil and cowardly that I can't shed so much as one tear over planes slammin' into the world trade center at blazin' speed. I'm sorry....but I'm just keepin' it REAL.

See....when you're an UNIBAISED REALIST....you speak on the good and evil....in all peoples.

And that's what I am. I don't play favorites WITH ANY RACE OF PEOPLE. I don't care what you have accomplished, outside of your God-blessed accomplishments, I refuse to think more highly of you than anyone else in this world.

You said "When we [the United States] intervened in Haiti, when thirty American Special Forces went to the President's [Aristide] home on February the 29th, 2004 and kidnapped the President and his American-born wife".---------
Uh, the United States DIDN'T do any such thing.
You said "and secreted them off to the Central African Republic".---------
This nation greatly ASSISTED Haitis former president, leftist Jean Bertrand Aristide to get out of Haiti. For Jean & his families well being.
The United States actions here were very beneficial to Aristide & his family.
#304 Nov 10, 2014
You said "we violated several international laws. We violated the United Nations Charter.
Your 2 points here.--------- You are totally incorrect.
You are incorrect, because the United States actions regarding Aristide & his family did NOT violate any international laws. This nation did not violate the United Nations Charter at all because no United States troops abducted Aristides family.
You said "And keeping the President out of the country now, violates the treaty, the international covenant on civil and ------ the protection of civil and political rights".---------
This nations actions regarding Aristide did NOT violate any treaties. It did not violate the international covenant on the protection of civil or political rights.
It did not, because the United States did NOT order or force Jean Bertrand Aristide out of Haiti.
#305 Nov 10, 2014
You said "The Caribbean nations asked for an investigation of what happened to Haitis democracy".---------
It was NOT Caribbean nations. It was just Jamaicas left wing Peoples National Party (PNP) which proposed a possible investigation into what happened in Haiti. That was it.
You said "And the US, on the [UN] Security Council squelched that".---------
The United States did not do any such thing.
You said "You cannot abide these kinds of egregious violations of international law".---------
February 2004. Haiti.---------
What happened inside Haiti, this nation was NOT responsible.
The United States did not commit any violations of international law at all.
#306 Nov 10, 2014
You said "In the American Empire, success at war no longer matters".---------
Are you kidding? The United States success at war SURE does matter.
You said "Huge sums of American taxpayers' money have flowed into the American armaments industries".---------
Correct. It has been (still is) needed. Because this nation has many, many Allies throughout the world which have to be supported.
You said "and huge amounts of power into Homeland Security".---------
Correct. It is needed. Because the United States has enemies which have to be monitored & countered. Primarily enemies are left wing movements & Islamic fundamentalists.
#307 Nov 10, 2014
You said "If you look at the deployment of US forces in Afghanistan ..... you'll see that the US forces are positioned to guard the pipeline route".---------
A good number of the United States soldiers who are stationed in Afghanistan are guarding the pipeline route. No surprise, considering that the pipeline route is CRITICAL.
You said "It's what it's about. It's about money, it's about oil".---------
What do you expect?
You said "it's not about democracy".---------
It is also about democracy. As long as the democracy is pro-Western.
#308 Nov 10, 2014
You said "Why is it that, so far, every single country in Africa has said, "We do not want AFRICOM?".---------
You have this totally inverted & counterclockwise. Most of the African nations are in support of AFRICOM.
You said "It wanted a reason, an excuse , to secure Africa, primarily for its oil resources".---------
The United States didn't want any reason or excuse.
This nation didn't need any reason or excuse because the top black Sub-Saharan African nations which have oil.--------- They have been (still are) aligned with the United States.
#310 Nov 10, 2014
Absolutely nothing of the sort.
Ugandas former left wing dictator Idi Amin Dada was NOT an Ally of the United States.
Idi Amin was an enemy of the United States, Israel & the United Kingdom.
This is why Idi Amin was removed from power.
Another enemy of the United States, Israel & the United Kingdom was Liberias former left wing dictator Charles Taylor.
This is why Charles Taylor was removed from power.
Why Charles is facing many criminal charges at the International Criminal Court at the Hague.
#311 Nov 10, 2014
You said "he [Henry Kissinger] would be one of the first people who would be up there on the witness stand trying to explain his support for death squads, and repressive governments in Latin America, war crimes in Southeast Asia, the apartheid South African government..".---------
Nope, Henry Kissinger would NOT have been on any witness stand at the International Criminal Court at the Hague. Henry wouldn't have been because he never gave any support to any Death Squads.
He never gave any orders to any repressive Latin American government.
He never ordered any oppressive measures in Southeast Asia.
He never gave any orders to South Africas former apartheid government.
He never supported South Africas former apartheid government.
So, Henry Kissinger would NOT have stood any trial at the International Criminal Court at the Hague.

Come on, the United States & the Algerian Intelligence Services did NOT abduct those tourists.
Those tourists were abducted by Algerian Islamic fundamentalists.
#313 Nov 10, 2014
Doctor REALITY, if you "think" that.--------- It appears that you are not thinking clearly. It appears that you are not thinking clearly, yet again.
#314 Nov 10, 2014
The United States dropping the atomic bombs on Hiroshima & Nagasaki was totally different (on the one hand) compared to Islamic fundamentalists carrying out their very dastardly attack on this nation on September 11, 2001.
Doctor REALITY, you should start getting some logic & reasoning.
#315 Nov 10, 2014
It was not pleasant.
The Japanese cities of Hiroshima & Nagasaki produced a lot of weapons for the Empire of Imperial Fascist Japan.
So, Hiroshima & Nagasaki were legitimate military targets.
The United States using the atomic bombs on Japan saved MANY Allied (American, British, Australian, Canadian, New Zealander & Chinese) lives.

Had the United States not used the atomic bombs on Japan. Had this nation launched an amphibious invasion of Japan. Projected casualties.
1. Secretary of war Henry Stimson.---------
Henry estimated that an American invasion of Japan & the mopping up operations.---------
1.7 to 4 million American casualties. Including 400,000 to 800,000 fatalities.
5 to 10 million Japanese fatalities.
2. War correspondent for the Los Angeles Times, Kyle Palmer. Also, Herbert Hoover.---------
Kyle & Herbert forecasted 500,000 to 1,000,000 casualties.
3. Many American Generals.---------
Forecasted that in the first 90 days of the invasion of Japan.---------
456,000 American casualties with 109,000 dead or missing.
If the invasion would have taken another 90 days (which was very likely), the casualty rate would be 1,000,000 casualties with 267,000 fatalities.
In my next post, I will list Japans military strength.
#317 Nov 10, 2014
August 1, 1945. Five days before the first atomic bomb was dropped on Japan.---------
Japans strength right near the beaches where Allied soldiers were to land at.---------
At least 65 divisions with over 900,000 Japanese soldiers (very well armed at this).
Over 3 tank brigades.
Over 10,290 airplanes.
Over 100 midget submarines.
Over 250 Kairyu class midget submarines.
Over 1,000 Kaiten manned torpedoes.
Over 800 Shinyo suicide boats.
It was forecasted that the Japanese Kamikaze attacks ALONE would sink more than 400 American transport ships & that 1/3 to 1/2 of Americas invasion force would be sunk BEFORE its landing.
So, the United States dropping the atomic bombs on Japan was totally JUSTIFIED. It saved Allied lives.
It saved Japanese lives in the long run.
#318 Nov 10, 2014
The Japanese religious government didn't give a damn about life. They wanted to conquer the world at any cost and treated their emperor as a god. Their ruthless, fanatic and barbaric atrocities will be legendary and will never die. Maybe in a couple hundred more years. They got exactly what was coming to them.
