US Admiral Gene LaRocque

I had been in thirteen battle engagements, had sunk a submarine, and was the first man ashore in the landing at Roi. In that four years, I thought, What a hell of a waste of a man's life. I lost a lot of friends. I had the task of telling my roommate's parents about our last days together. You lose limbs, sight, part of your life-for what? Old men send young men to war. Flag, banners, and patriotic sayings...
We've institutionalized militarism. This came out of World War Two... It gave us the National Security Council. It gave us the CIA, that is able to spy on you and me this very moment. For the first time in the history of man, a country has divided up the world into military districts.... You could argue World War Two had to be fought. Hitler had to be stopped. Unfortunately, we translate it unchanged to the situation today...

I hate it when they say, "He gave his life for his country." Nobody gives their life for anything. We steal the lives of these kids. We take it away from them. They don't die for the honor and glory of their country. We kill them.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
If an American is concerned only about his nation, he will not be concerned about the peoples of Asia, Africa, or South America. Is this not why nations engage in the madness of war without the slightest sense of penitence? Is this not why the murder of a citizen of your own nation is a crime, but the murder of citizens of another nation in war is an act of heroic virtue?

Hmmmm.Doc hypocrite can you explain the cultural exchanges the Chinese and the Indians are making in Sudan???

I can .

Small Arms Sales

“Everyone knows that the weapons in Darfur come from different sources … But I can say we have nothing to do with that.”
—Li Chengwen, Chinese Ambassador to Sudan, September 2007

Sudan’s purchases of small arms, small arms parts, and ammunition have risen dramatically since 1999. By 2005, Sudan’s small arms imports had risen to more than 680 times their 1999 levels.

From 2003 to 2006, the period covering the worst abuses by Sudanese government forces in Darfur, China sold over $55 million worth of small arms to Khartoum.

Since 2004, the year in which the United Nations Security Council imposed an embargo on arms transfers to Darfur, China has been the near-exclusive provider of small arms to Khartoum, supplying approximately 90 percent of Sudan’s small arms purchases each year.

Observers on the ground in Darfur have reported seeing Chinese weaponry, including grenade launchers and ammunition for assault rifles and heavy machine guns.

Aircraft and Heavy Weapons

“Images from the parade have revealed to the world that the Sudanese army resembles a second Chinese Liberation Army.”
—A defense analyst describing a military parade celebrating Sudan’s 52nd Independence Day in 2007

In 2003, China sold up to 20 A-5C Fantan fighter-bombers, capable of delivering 4,000 pounds of bombs in a single strike, to Sudan.

In 2005, the Chinese company Dongfeng exported more than two hundred military trucks to Sudan. New trucks of a similar type were seen later that year on a Sudanese air force base in Darfur, and military trucks have been used to transport Sudanese soldiers to sites where civilians have been attacked.

In 2006, Sudan received six K-8 advanced trainer aircraft, which can be fitted for ground attack combat, from China.

In 2007, television footage from a military parade celebrating Sudan’s 52nd Independence Day showed that Sudan had late-model battle tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, and military trainers from China.

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 [1960-1996]. 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.

"cultural exchange"

•In 2005, an Indian defense firm entered into contracts worth more than $17 million to provide battlefield surveillance radar, communication equipment and night vision equipment to the government of Sudan. Sudan also claims to have received over $1.5 million worth of armored fighting vehicles from India since 2004. India claims total arms sales to Sudan of just over $200,000.
•Iran reports total arms sales of over $12 million to Sudan, including almost $8 million worth of tanks.

William Lawrence Shirer (February 23, 1904 – December 28, 1993) was an American journalist, war correspondent, and historian.

Does one American in 1,000 or in 100,000, realize that, whereas the Germans dropped 80,000 tons of bombs on Britain in more than five years of war (and we thought it was barbaric), we dropped 100,000 tons on Indochina in the single month of last November, when Nixon restricted the bombing because of the Paris "peace" talks; and that under Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon we have dropped a total of 7 million tons of bombs on Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos— vastly more than we and the British let loose on Germany and Japan togedther in World War II? It was done in the name of "a just peace," of course. Has not Nixon said it dozens of times, his face on the TV screen frozen in unctuousness, as he sent his troops to invade a new country—Cambodia, Laos—or as he ordered his bombers to resume unloading tens of thousands of tons of more lethal bombs on a country which had no Air Force with which to defend itself?

UIRMWP, your posts are excellent and right on the mark.

Yesterday I watched a Finnish documentary about hundreds of thousands of Indian farmers committing suicide because of unbearable poverty.
Mr. Sainath is an Indian journalist who writes about and lectures on this incredible human tragedy being forced upon the farmers of India by American and European agribusiness. Here is the documentary where he explains the roots of evil and its effects on rural Indians:



At 25:18 Mr. Sainath gets to the point, as he does many times throughout the documentary.

If I were POTUS, I'd stick all U.S. citizens into education camps and have them watch documentaries such as the above one till everyone starts vomiting.
