Wikileak Video of Purported US War Crimes in Iraq Authenticated By US Military & The numbered killed has risen to 20 or more

"The similarities between this story and the Iraq one we just talked about are obvious. Here you have an incident that we know about only because of sheer luck and determination on the part of a single reporter, and again the military lying about what took place. And if you go back and read the accounts from CNN, the New York Times and others, all they do is mindlessly repeat what the Pentagon said without any questioning at all. That’s the way the media reports on these things. That’s how we, as a country, end up propagandized about it."
Quote from Glenn Greenwald on Democracy Now! discussing the massacre in Iraq and the murders in Afghanistan. at Democracy Now!April 6, 2010.

So let's begin with part of piece about the Massacre in Iraq of Two Reuters Jounalists , two children, the shooting of a wounded man crawling across the ground bleeding to death, a van arrives the men are taking care of the wounded & the Americans kill them- if was or not they didn't care .

Now we find out that the death toll was much hire than the US military claims. There were other by-standers shot along with a number of people in their homes on that street or ally way- 20 to 30. Wikileaks promise to release another tape in which Americans murder over 90 civilians .

But for anyone paying attention to this war and its soldiers and its vets. The vets talk about that all Iraqis whom they pejoratively label "Hajjis" used as an epithet such the "N..... Word . They are taught in basic training and this hatred and somewhat dismissive view of Iraqis as Hajjis into the battlefield. It appears where there is no battlefield the Americans are intent on creating a battlefield just to keep up the killing. Vets talk about carrying shovels or extra rifles mainly to toss out as evidence after they've killed a civilian or their whole family. And the numerous times US troops rape Iraqi girls and even if caught its treated as a minor infraction -but they'r doing it in the name of the Christian God.

Pentagon declares Wikileaks & other Disloyal Journalists who try to report the truth.

Democracy Now!Massacre Caught on Tape: US Military Confirms Authenticity of Their Own Chilling Video Showing Killing of Journalists Wikileaks

The US military has confirmed the authenticity of newly released video showing US forces indiscriminately firing on Iraqi civilians. On Monday, the website posted footage taken from a US military helicopter in July 2007 as it killed twelve people and wounded two children. The dead included two employees of the Reuters news agency, photographer Namir Noor-Eldeen and driver Saeed Chmagh. We speak with WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange and blogger Glenn Greenwald.

Americans & their allies in Iraq and Afghanistan Murder on a daily basis with impunity and then Americans wonder why they are hated in these countries . Meanwhile other sovereign nations wait in fear of an American/ NATO Attack on their country Some critics claim the Americans & NATO main motivation is really an old fashioned one of booty that is to get the natural resources plus cheap labor and a strategic advantage in the area from Iraq to Afghanistan. To then control trade routes and the flow of oil especially by way of pipe-lines. For who really owns these natural resources . The Americans and many Westerners believe that they must be permitted free access to natural resources at bargain-basement prices and this means giving low rates of royalties to the nations in question and the hiring of labor at the lowest possible rate and if the workers complain they are labeled radicals and insurgents and then murdered . We know now this is how the Americans have been spreading their Empire and influence since the middle of the 19th century to the present by Gun Boat diplomacy and now B1 bombers , Gunship Helicopters, Unmanned Drones controlled by a bureaucrat/soldier in Nebraska or Arizona etc.

The Americans including President Obama appear to believe they are superior in every way possible to any other nation or peoples . The further believe it is their destiny (Manifest Destiny) and by the Evolution of their superior country and people or as a matter of Divine providence in that God has chosen America to have absolute dominion over the entire globe( didn't Adolph Hitler believe this same crock of shit )

Some may wonder if it Is their goal to remove all signs of civilization in all of the Islamic dominated countries so they won't be a threat to Christendom . Or by reducing the country to rubble and the citizens to pathetic survivors the West can then claim how backward all these people are. That's essentially what they did to Iraq destroying cities as great as any in the West. Now Baghdad and Fllujah and Nasra etc. look like Berlin after the Allies and Russians took the city in 1945. The thing of it is no matter what the American politicians and military leaders say this is all for the most a way for America to get revenge for the 9/11 attack.

But This is in part at least for many Westerners a Holy War or a Christian Crusade otherwise these tactics would be counterproductive-The Pentagon and the White House don't want peace they just want a piece of the action and to kill as many Arabs, Afghans, Muslims as they possibly can maybe the Neocons & Neoliberal fanatical Hawks like Hilary Clinton will insist Obama drop baby Atomic weapons on Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Syria, Pakistan or even eventually India to ensure Western or at least American hegemony .

Their driving desire is to kill more of those pernicious journalists or anyone else who dares criticize the American on-going occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and parts of Pakistan.

Besides if you listen to average American soldiers and their Christian Evangelical Fundamentalist Chaplains and the top brass in the Pentagon they are motivated to kill combatants and non-combatants alike whom the Americans believe are religious fanatics who all grow up to be terrorists so the more of these people murdered including toddlers and infants the better. The American and many other people in the West truly believe that these other peoples are not worthy of life because they are barbaric and follow an evil religion founded by Muhammad whom they believe is really a minion of Satan in the same way the more extremist Muslims believe that America is the Great ash-Shaityn (Satan).

The Americans believe only they are the true followers of the one true God and so other peoples do not have the same rights which were given to the Americans by God. Therefore these other peoples whether Muslims. Hindus, Buddhists, Taoist have no claim to the same rights as American Christians that is they do not have the rights to life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness .

As we have learned Hillary Clinton and others in positions of power and influence belong to various Christian Supremacist organizations and Churches such as The Family or Fellowship or other fanatical Evangelical Fundamentalist who believe whatever they do is okay because they are God's chosen ones.

Where is the outrage ah well the Americans & Nato Forces like the Romans or the Spanish or British etc. never thought twice about killing people they believed were inferior to them either.

After First Denying Involvement, US Forces Admit Killing Two Pregnant Afghan Women & Teenager at Democracy Now! April 6, 2010

US-led forces have admitted for the first time to killing two pregnant Afghan women and a teenage girl during a nighttime raid in eastern Afghanistan on February 12th. NATO officials initially denied any involvement but were later forced to admit to the killings after the Times of London and other news outlets published accounts of survivors who described how the atrocity was carried out by US-led forces. We speak with Jerome Starkey, the Times of London correspondent in Afghanistan who broke the story.

More bad news for US and Ally forces in Afghanistan

Taliban atrocity exposed as being an atrocity committed by US & Ally Soldiers

NATOs Christian Crusaders murder pregnant women and school children & other unarmed civilians
Unfortunately our country of Canada has now become a part of these indiscriminate killings
Afghan, Pakistan, Iraq are all Free-Fire Zones - according to Americans , The Pentagon and former President Bush and Now President Obama want to kill as many Arabs, Iraqis, Afghans , Pashtun and Muslims everywhere in pursuing a Christian Holy War against all Non-Christians. Just the way Tea Partying Republicans like it except they would just ratchet up the numbers a lot faster.

NATO & Terrorist Americans try to Silence an Honest Reporter in Afghanistan - More Murder, EXPOSED
March 28, 2010

Brave New Foundation’s Rethink Afghanistan project has been following the story about a night raid in Gardez by U.S. and Afghan forces (see the video above), and today those forces made a major admission about their responsibility for civilian deaths. In a press release issued on Easter (gee, I wonder if they hoped people would be distracted today), the U.S. and allied forces under General McChrystal’s command, International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), admitted they killed two innocent civilians and three women, two of them pregnant.

KABUL, Afghanistan (Apr. 4) – A thorough joint investigation into the events that occurred in the Gardez district of Paktiya Province Feb. 12, has determined that international forces were responsible for the deaths of three women who were in the same compound where two men were killed by the joint Afghan-international patrol searching for a Taliban insurgent.

The two men, who were later determined not to be insurgents, were shot and killed by the joint patrol after they showed what appeared to be hostile intent by being armed. While investigators could not conclusively determine how or when the women died, due to lack of forensic evidence, they concluded that the women were accidentally killed as a result of the joint force firing at the men.

Recall that on March 15, ISAF’s spokesperson, Rear Adm. Greg Smith, said:

"The women, I’m not sure anyone will ever know how they died." He added, however, "I don’t know that there are any forensics that show bullet penetrations of the women or blood from the women." He said they showed signs of puncture and slashing wounds from a knife, and appeared to have died several hours before the arrival of the assault force. In respect for Afghan customs, autopsies are not carried out on civilian victims, he said.

Now wait just a minute. NATO has strenuously denied any cover-up in this incident while smearing journalists who challenged their initial, untrue story. Yet somehow, we’ve gone from knowing enough about the condition of the bodies to say that there were puncture and slashing wounds from a knife to conclusions "that the women were accidentally killed as a result of the joint force firing at the men." NATO then expects you to believe that all the bad information in this story was due to "a lack of cultural understanding by the joint force and the chain of command."

Someone please explain to me the cultural misunderstanding responsible for Smith’s implication that women were killed by knife wounds when they were in fact killed by gunfire.

These are not errors of cultural understanding. They are intentional lies meant to allow someone to escape responsibility for killing three women, two of them pregnant. Smith was lying before when describing the bodies or repeating lies he was told. ISAF was perpetrating a cover-up, and Smith participated in it, either willingly or unwillingly. Until ISAF admits that they did, in fact, attempt to perpetrate a cover-up, they are still lying to you.

I said it last week and I’ll say it again:

Starkey’s reporting and ISAF’s reaction to it shows that their natural inclination to escape accountability remains strong and operative when they think they can get away with violent mistakes under the cover of darkness.
