The day I received American citizenship was a turning point in my life. I had ceased to be stateless. Until then, unprotected by any government and unwanted by any society, the Jew in me was overcome by a feeling of pride mixed with gratitude.
From that day on, I felt privileged to belong to a country which, for two centuries, has stood as a living symbol of all that is charitable and decent to victims of injustice everywhere—a country in which every person is entitled to dream of happiness, peace and liberty; where those who have are taught to give back.
In America, compassion for the refugee and respect for the other still have biblical connotations.
That day I encountered the first American soldiers in the Buchenwald concentration camp. I remember them well. Bewildered, disbelieving, they walked around the place, hell on earth, where our destiny had been played out. They looked at us, just liberated, and did not know what to do or say. Survivors snatched from the dark throes of death, we were empty of all hope—too weak, too emaciated to hug them or even speak to them. Like lost children, the American soldiers wept and wept with rage and sadness. And we received their tears as if they were heartrending offerings from a wounded and generous humanity.
Ever since that encounter, I cannot repress my emotion before the flag and the uniform—anything that represents American heroism in battle. That is especially true on July Fourth. I reread the Declaration of Independence, a document sanctified by the passion of a nation’s thirst for justice and sovereignty, forever admiring both its moral content and majestic intonation. Opposition to oppression in all its forms, defense of all human liberties, celebration of what is right in social intercourse: All this and much more is in that text, which today has special meaning.
America understands that a nation is great not because its economy is flourishing or its army invincible but because its ideals are loftier. Hence America’s desire to help those who have lost their freedom to conquer it again. America’s credo might read as follows: For an individual, as for a nation, to be free is an admirable duty—but to help others become free is even
more admirable - Elie Wiesel, writer, professor, political activist, Nobel Laureate, and Holocaust survivor

The Press, New Zealand, April 18, 2000

Legally the sanctions [against Iraq by U.S.] have been labeled genocide, a war crime, and a crime against humanity under international law.

New York Times, February 26, 1999

A [UN-sponsored] truth commission report has concluded that the United States gave money and training to a Guatemalan military that committed 'acts of genocide' against the Mayan people during the most brutal armed conflict in Latin America, Guatemala's 36-year civil war [196(}1996]. The report of the independent Historical Clarification Commission, which was released on Thursday, contradicts years of official denial about the torture, kidnapping and execution of thousands of civilians in a war that the commission estimated killed more than 200,000 Guatemalans.

May 1990, States News Service released a study in Washington by Kathy Kadane
:"U.S. government played a significant role [ in the 1965 Indonesian genocide by Suharto] by supplying the names of thousands of Communist Party leaders to the Indonesian army, which hunted down the leftists and killed them... As many as 5000 names were furnished to the Indonesian army, and the Americans later checked off the names of those who had been killed or captured.

unless the civilians are liberated from concentration camps and Nazi oppression
<quoted text>
Noam Chomsky, Year 501,, p173

Over 440 villages were totally destroyed and well over 100,000 civilians were killed or "disappeared," up to 150,000 according to the Church and others, all with the enthusiastic support of the Reagan Administration. Huge areas of the highlands were destroyed in a frenzy of irreversible environmental devastation. The goal was to prevent a recurrence of popular organization or any further thought of freedom or social reform. The toll since the US regained control is estimated at about 200,000 unarmed civilians killed or "disappeared," and in the highlands, episodes that qualify as genocide, if the word has meaning. In an amazing triumph of the human spirit, popular forces and leaders continue their struggle against US-inspired neo-Nazism.

(US weapon manufactures used Depleted Uranium ...)
In the Name of Democracy
American War Crimes in Iraq and Beyond
edited by Jeremy Brecher, et al, p44

Laws which are breached by the use of DU [depleted uranium] shells include: the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; the Charter of the United Nations; the Genocide Convention; the Convention Against Torture; [and] the four Geneva Conventions of 1949, which expressly forbid employing "poison or poisoned weapons" and "arms, projectiles or materials calculated to cause unnecessary suffering." All of these laws are designed to spare civilians from unwarranted suffering in armed conflicts.

Normalizing the Unthinkable
John Pilger, Robert Fisk, Charlie Glass, and Seymour Hersh on the failure of the world's press
by Sophie McNeill

“The (US) invasion of Vietnam was deliberate and calculated-as were policies and strategies that bordered on genocide and were designed to force millions of people to abandon their homes. Experimental weapons were used against civilians. All of this was rarely news. The unspoken task of the reporter in Vietnam, as it was in Korea, was to normalize the unthinkable. And that has not changed.”

Ben Bagdikian (Educator and Journalist) wrote in The New Media Monopoly, the 2004 (edition of his landmark book on the news business

"In the 1980s and afterward, the United States underwrote 24 American corporations so they could sell to Saddam Hussein weapons of mass destruction, which he used against Iran, at that time the prime Middle Eastern enemy of the United States. Hussein used ' U.S.-supplied poison gas" against Iranians and Kurds "while the United States looked the other way. This was the same Saddam Hussein who then, as in 2000, was a tyrant subjecting dissenters in his regime to unspeakable tortures and committing genocide against his Kurdish minorities."

What the hell, that happened 41 frickin years ago, what the hell do I care about something I have no control over, are you going to blame us in the 21st century for slavery next too? Might as well blame the pilots for going the wrong way in bringing in the immigrants to this country in the 1800's.

And while you're at it, we also deserve blame for not annihilating the whole middle east when we had the chance, so yeah we do deserve some blame! What idiots we are!!

Total lie CHOCOLATE FACE. Sodomy Insane had his own chemical weapons program, that had been assisted by the Soviets. The funny thing is, all you Ass Clowns say he never had WMDs, sighting that as pretence for the United States invading Iraq, thus making it an 'illegal war'. The reality was, the United States was part of a coalition that went into Iraq under a United Nations resolution for violating no fly zones and numerous other acts of aggression towards United Nations forces. <¦-o

Depleted uranium shells are used for their extreme density, allowing them enhanced armor penetration capabilities. The occupants of the tank or armored trooper carrier are killed instantly on impact, not poisoned you third world fool, CHOCOLATE FACE!
