Genocides and Mass Murder Campaigns by the United States

November 9, 2017

It appears that the United States which has been in continuous existence for only about 250 years has been involved in perpetrating an inordinately high and unparalleled number of genocides and mass murder campaigns.

In fact, it can be argued that the United States began with a genocide (Native Americans) followed it through with slavery (black Africans) and for the past 100 or so years has been involved in a permanent worldwide aggression against the world (over 100 Imperialistic interventions in 100 years, see elsewhere on this blog), intensifying said aggression over the past 30 years in particular.

Here is an incomplete list of the genocides and mass murder campaigns that the United States is thought to have perpetrated:

 

  • 95,000,000 Native American Genocide (an entire distinct and unique race of humans wiped out)
  • 150,000,000 African Slave Trade, Principle beneficiary being the United States
  • 700,000 US Civil War
  • 100,000 Industrial Revolution USA
  • 100,000 Spanish-American War
  • 650,000 Invasion of the Philippines
  • 3,000,000 US-Philippine War and 40 year occupation
  • 12,000,000 Great Depression in the United States – mass murder by Capitalist economic policies
  • 40,000 Nuclear attacks on civilians in Japan – Hiroshima, Nagasaki
  • 10,000,000 Korean War
  • 1,000,000 Indonesian CIA sponsored Anti-Communist Purge
  • 5,000,000 US Intervention in the Congo
  • 1,200,000 US Backed Suharto
  • 13,000,000 Vietnam War, including Cambodia and Laos
  • 300,000 Guatemala (heavy US involvement and incitement)
  • 15,000 Union Carbide Bhopal Disaster
  • 1,000,000 Iraq-Iran War (US supported and supplied Saddam’s Iraq, a strong US ally in the 1980s)
  • 400,000 Iraq (Gas sold to Saddam, a US ally, used in chemical warfare against Kurds)
  • 500,000 Iraq (Desert Storm, first war against Saddam’s Iraq, formerly a US ally)
  • 1,000,000 US sanctions on Iraq
  • 500,000 US Bombing Iraq Water Supply ‘91
  • 300,000 US Bombing of Yugoslavia
  • 1,200,000 Invasion of Afghanistan
  • 1,300,000 Invasion of Iraq (second war against Saddam’s Iraq, a US ally in the 1980s)
  • 6,000,000 US intervention in Latin America and brutal US-backed military dictatorships
  • 30,000 US Backed murder of Tamils
  • 100,000 US Made Famine Bangladesh
  • 3,000,000 US incited Arab Spring revolutions: Tunisia, Egypt, campaigns against Gaddafi’s Libya, Asad’s Syria; supporting and supplying terrorist aligned factions

Grand (incomplete) total of the human cost of the genocides and mass murder campaigns by the United States and of the victims of the United States’ ongoing worldwide aggression:

299 MILLION… and rising

It is also worth noting that all of the above genocides, mass murder campaigns, wars of aggression were perpetrated by the United States under the guise of, or while preaching, “pursuit of happiness”, “democracy”, “human rights”, “world freedom” etc.

US PRESIDENTS WHO ARE WORST MASS MURDERERS

October 6, 2017

WORST US PRESIDENT MASS MURDERERS:

Abraham Lincoln (mass murder during the bloodiest war on American soil, the bloodiest civil war anywhere in the world, 600,000 dead which adjusted for today would probably mean about 60 million).

Benjamin Harrison (mass murder – 300 Lakota Indians massacred at Wounded Knee).

William McKinley (necrophilia, blood lust, blood thirstiness, mass murder – US invasion of the Philippines 1899-1902 and subsequently occupation with over 650,000 Philippinos dead, Philippines Republic overthrown).

Herbert Hoover (mass murder by capitalist economic policies – 12,000,000 dead in the US during the Great Depression (America alone)).

Dwight D. Eisenhower (mass murder, necrophilia, blood lust, blood thirstiness – 10,000,000 dead in the Korean War).

Harry S. Truman (unnecessary and inhuman nuclear attack on Japan resulting in mass murder of tens of thousands of civilians).

Lyndon B. Johnson (Vietnam war – over 3 million dead, mostly civilians; 1,200,000 dead as a result of a US sponsored and CIA guided anti-Communist coup in Indonesia; US Army suppression of black African Americans in Detroit in 1967 – 43 killed.).

Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford (hundreds of thousands dead as a result of US-sponsored terror in Indonesia by Suharto; over 2 million killed in Cambodia in a decade of US bombing, starvation and political chaos.). Richard Nixon (5,000,000 dead as a result of a US intervention in the Congo, dictator Mabutu installed).

Ronald Reagan (241 US marines killed by Shia bombing in Lebanon after Reagan ordered invasion; thousands dead in US sponsored contras activity in Nicaragua).

George H. W. Bush (Gulf war – many dead, including 500,000 dead due to US bombing of Iraq’s water supply, also about 1,000,000 dead due to subsequent US-led sanctions on Iraq; Panama invasion by US forces – over 2,000 Panamanians killed.).

Bill Clinton (Balkan wars). Bill Clinton (wars of the West-provoked collapse of Yugoslavia, multiple US bombing campaigns, at least 300,000 dead).

George W. Bush (2003 Iraq War, Afghanistan, over 2 million killed as a result of his policies).

Barack H. Obama (over 500,000 killed as a result of policies and wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and other places, the world’s “most murderous black man”, “most prolific drone murderer”, the “most murderous Nobel peace prize winner ever”).

This an excerpt from my larger work – the Disgusting Habits and Horrible Crimes of U.S. Presidents.

How Many Dead “Terrorists” is the US Budget Worth?

April 16, 2017

Recently the Trump administration ordered (or allowed) the U.S. military now headed by the certifiable loon Mattis to drop their most powerful non-nuclear bomb, the MOAB, on some mountain in occupied Afghanistan.

The bomb caused a minor earthquake and allegedly succeeded in killing 34 IS “terrorists”.

Aside from the moral of labeling people terrorists and killing them indiscriminately by some dumb, if powerful, bomb, here is what else transpires.

A bomb costing US$ 314 million kills 34 IS “terrorists” which makes it US$ 8.7 million per “terrorist” which means the 2017 US budget is good for killing… 6,880 “terrorists”!

I trust you will find there’s many more.

Also, China has nothing to worry about, not now, not ever.

Obama’s True Legacy

January 11, 2017

Obama is all but gone (from the White House) and Obamism is in its violent death throes both domestically and internationally.

Eulogies and crocodile tears aside, let’s look at President Obama’s true legacy focusing on a few most salient points.

Awarded Nobel Peace Prize in advance, even before he acceded to the White House, Obama has been an unmitigated failure in upholding international peace.

While extricating America from the Iraq quagmire as he promised, he continued many wars and conflicts permanently waged by the US military and “intelligence” operatives all other the globe, provoked, fanned and encouraged many new wars and conflicts – so much so that international peace now looks more elusive and unattainable than it ever was before under President Bush (and that’s saying plenty).

Also, he embraced the new technology of distant indiscriminate killing using military aerial vehicles (drones) whereby tens of thousands of people died at the hands of US drone operators, with a substantial majority being innocent civilians, including many women and children. At one point, dozens of women and children were killed every single day in places like Afghanistan, Pakistan, North Africa and later Syria.

Overall, during his tenure Obama is thought to have been responsible for over 300,000 people killed, a majority of whom were Muslim.

While it represents a drop in numbers of killed people compared to President Bush, it still means that Obama not only became the most prolific drone killer in the world but also officially became the most murderous Nobel Peace Prize winner ever after the fact.

I am confident no other Nobel Peace Prize winner has ever killed as many people as Obama did.

Obama’s international military campaigns and adventures, such as Afghanistan, Libya, North Africa, Syria, also resulted in him becoming the world’s most murderous black man surpassing his idol African dictator Idi Amin.

During his second term, as American power became to wane and Obama got more and more irrelevant on the world stage, he developed by way of overcompensation the extreme supremacist nationalist (Nazi) ideology of US exclusiveness and its unique rights to preside over the world and the eternal nature of its dominance, sometimes referred to as Obamism, which ideology he expounded in several well publicized speeches.

As regards, domestic matters, here Obama was more of a talker than a doer.

While articulating good intentions inside the country, ultimately all his policies and innovations – ones that he actually got round to implement as promised — are now doomed under the incoming Trump administration.

Finally, Obama’s inability to hand over the reins of power to his designated successor – Hillary Clinton – thereby ensuring the certain reversal of his domestic policies and “achievements” is perhaps the most emblematic of Obama the failure.

U.S. Dept of State, CIA Behind Turkey Coup

July 18, 2016

It’s inconceivable that the CIA, America’s spy and subversion agency, was not involved in, or did not have prior knowledge of, the July 2016 failed coup attempt in Turkey.

Let’s engage in analysis of limited information and MSM decoding now, shall we?

Consider.

All previous coup attempts in Turkey, of which there were at least half a dozen, took place with the heavy involvement and/or prior knowledge of the CIA, and the US subversion agency has always had strong contacts with the Turkish military. Also coup plotters would not have dared to launch military action without informing the CIA or the US military intelligence structures and getting the “go-ahead” from them. After all, Turkey is a country that has scores of US nukes at an airbase within its territory.

In the early hours of the coup when it very much looked like it was succeeding, Secretary of State Kerry delivered a cryptic message, in which he said only that “he hoped for stability and continuity in Turkey”. That’s it. Yes, that is literally all that was said. (He also said it in Moscow of all places). It is hard not to take it as acceptance, if not outright encouragement, of the coup and an attempt to build early trust with Turkey’s would-be military leaders. As all previous military coups in Turkey were very much successful, he had no reason to think at that stage that the one in progress would turn out otherwise.

Only when it became apparent that the coup was actually failing was Prez Obama couched to say something in terms of needing to support the elected Erdogan government which was necessary to backtrack or even to cover the tracks.

Pro-Erdogan Turkish officials strongly suspect that all rebel helicopters and/or planes were refueling at the jointly Turkey and American run base at Incirlik.

Fethullah Gulen, an Islamic cleric, ostensibly accused by Erdogan of running a “parallel structure” and masterminding the coup, is in the United States and it is hard to imagine him being able to operate in the post-2001 “Islamic-terror-fighting” America without permission and/or approval from the United State’s security apparatus.

It is also possible that President Erdogan meant much more than Mr. Fethullar Gulen himself when he said that “this country [Turkey] would not be run from Pennsylvania”. CIA has many operational facilities in the State of Pennsylvania.

There is also a distinct lack of Western joy, to say the least, at President Erdogan’s victory over the coup and the decisive manner of it.

Also, over the past 50 years, the US via its CIA and other structures was involved in over 60 coup attempts. In fact, in the past 50 years there hasn’t been a single coup or coup attempt that the US was NOT involved in.

This pretty much seals it.

Bison Skull Mountain

December 3, 2015

The famous picture from 1870 showing a huge pile of bison (buffalo) skulls.

bison

Massive bison herds once numbered tens of millions of animals across North America but the Bison/Buffalo was hunted to near extinction in the late 19th century.

The American settler military was heavily involved in bison slaughter.

The settlers’ principal motive was that they wanted to weaken the North American Indian population by removing their main food source and to pressure them onto the reservations during times of conflict.

So, a double whammy of genocides… targeting both the buffalo and the North American Native.

The former now exists only in limited numbers in some sickly herds, while the erstwhile 40+ Native North American nations are also gone for ever, the entire indigenous civilization destroyed and supplanted.

Obama U-Turns on Withdrawal of American Forces from Afghanistan, Islamic Emirate Issues Warning

October 17, 2015

Obama halted the withdrawal of American military forces from Afghanistan in a reversal of his earlier much publicized policy.

The American & Nato occupation, already 14 year-old and hundreds of thousands dead later, is set to continue at least into 2018.

Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan issued a stern and eloquent warning to the American people and government calling for increased attacks on American occupation targets in Afghanistan, quote:

The Islamic Emirate has reiterated time and again that the American forces have no plans of ending the occupation of Afghanistan and all their apparent announcements concerning it are ploys to fool our nation and the American people. Now they have followed it practically by openly declaring that 5500 troops will remain in Afghanistan till the end of 2017.

The Islamic Emirate announces the following in regards to the illogical decision by America:

1. Maintaining America troops in Afghanistan can in no way slow down the rapid process of our Jihad and struggle. The insistence upon policy of war by American officials will only further aggravate the sensitivities of our nation and the region. When attacks begin to intensify against the American invaders, their casualties begin rising and the cost of this futile and unwinnable war in Afghanistan increases, she will willfully begin changing her tyrannical roadmap.

2. If the invaders lost the war in Afghanistan with the presence of hundreds of thousands of troops, their hopes of reversing the tide with five thousand troops are even more misguided. Insisting upon war and occupation will further reduce the support America enjoys around the world and with the American people themselves. America will get entangled in the war inside Afghanistan all by herself such that her fate shall be similar to that of the former Soviet Union.

3. If Obama has taken this paradoxical decision due to the calls by despondent and distressed Kabul officials or due to some other necessity then know that this can never be in the best interest of either America or Afghanistan and shall mostly be harmful for American interests and prestige.

4. We call upon our Mujahideen to intensify their attacks against American targets and to revise, escalate and quicken their plans against their movements, bases and affiliated organs.

Latest US War Crime in Kunduz, Afghanistan

October 10, 2015

The US’ latest major war crime happened a week ago when an MSF hospital in Kunduz was bombed, with 22 doctors and staff confirmed killed and over 30 still unaccounted for, presumed killed as well.

The bombing was almost certainly intentional and intended as a message to Taliban after they reportedly managed to shoot down earlier in the week a US C-130 at Jalalabad Airbase with a loss of 12 US personnel and civilians.

In this instance the US forces involved clearly acted in violation of international law as under the laws of war all parties to armed conflicts are required to distinguish at all times between combatants and civilians and direct attacks only at combatants. Indiscriminate attacks are prohibited. All parties must take all feasible precautions to avoid, and minimize, loss of civilian life and injury to civilians

In fact, last week’s Kunduz hospital airstrike is not the only crime the US-led Nato forces willfully perpetrated in Kunduz in their 14-year occupation of Afghanistan.

In an earlier incident, in 2009, they killed over 90 civilians who were burned alive after Nato planes attacked a fleet of fuel trucks.
